One U.S. Representative from the state of Louisiana has heard enough from his Congressional colleagues on the subject of non-existent Russian “collusion.”
“What part of NO COLLUSION is hard to understand? The US is booming under [President Donald J. Trump] – imagine if people quit trying to undermine him and worked with him. And let me know when the investigation for Hillary’s collusion begins…” Rep. Ralph Abraham (R-La.) said on Twitter.

Abraham, who is an ardent Trump supporter and backed the president during the entire two-year investigation by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III, linked to an Axios piece about the Senate Intelligence Committee’s subpoena of Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.
The political establishment has not handled Mueller’s conclusion – that Trump did not collude with Russians or obstruct the subsequent investigation into the non-existent collusion – with grace. Rather, their response has been something of a meltdown, and they have refused to accept Mueller’s findings.
Their latest play has been to call for the impeachment of Attorney General William P. Barr over a four-page summary of the Mueller report which exonerated Trump, despite the fact that Barr made the redacted report public weeks later. They have since moved to hold Barr in contempt of Congress after he refused to testify in front of the House Judiciary Committee the day after testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Abraham, who is also running for Louisiana governor and attempting to oust an incumbent Democrat, recognizes the bizarre nature of the Russian “collusion” hysteria.
“I called the Mueller investigation a witch hunt & total waste of taxpayer dollars from the get-go. It’s always been political w/ Dems who can’t stand that they lost the election. You would think they would be grateful that there was no collusion but that doesn’t fit their agenda,” he said in April.

Rand Paul Warns Third Party Will Rise if Republican Senators Vote with Democrats to Convict President Trump
The GOP is crumbling.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is warning that at least one-third of GOP senators will revolt and leave the party if Republicans join Democrats to convict the president.
This would potentially create the most viable third party in recent political history if Republican leadership is foolish enough to go down this path. Even though he refused to oppose the vote steal last week, Paul claims he and many of his colleagues intend to leave the party forever if the Senate goes through with impeachment.
“I didn’t agree with the fight that happened last week. I voted against over-turning the election,” Paul said while appearing on FOX News on Friday night. “But at the same time, the impeachment is a wrongheaded, partisan notion. If Republicans go along with it, it will destroy the party. A third of the Republicans will leave the party.”
“A third of the Republicans will leave the party,” Paul added. “This isn’t about, anymore, about the Electoral College, it’s about the future of the party, and whether you’re going to ostracize and excommunicate President Trump from the party. Well, guess what? Millions of his fans will leave as well.”
Paul made these responses after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) publicly flirted with the idea of voting to convict President Trump.
“I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate,” McConnell said.
Paul is putting McConnell and the rest of the GOP leadership on notice. This is the line in the sand as far as he is concerned.
“They will destroy the Republican Party. If leadership is complicit with an impeachment or if leadership votes for an impeachment, they will destroy the party,” Paul said.
“Like I say, I have opposed President Trump when I thought he was wrong, I’ve been for him when he was right. We did a lot of good things throughout the Trump presidency, and impeachment is purely a partisan thing,” he added.
The full segment with Paul and host Laura Ingraham can be seen here:
Big League Politics has reported on the division within the GOP since 10 Republican turncoats in the House join Democrats to impeach Trump for a second time:
Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.
“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”
“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added…
Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”
The realignment that is happening within the conservative movement might result in the destruction of the Republican Party. President Trump may ultimately destroy the GOP swamp.
