Louisiana House Rep: ‘What Part of No Collusion is Hard to Understand?’

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.
