|Republicans are slow walking the Russian hacking scandal. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) steps down and Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX) replaces him. The two are now trying bring Susan Rice into the affair.|
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) caved to pressure to step aside. He announced today he will step aside temporarily from the investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Who replaces him is a guy who said a racially insensitive comment.
Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX) is going to be even worse.
Conaway said in January, "Harry Reid (then Minority Leader of the Senate) and the Democrats brought in Mexican soap opera stars, singers and entertainers who immense influence in those communities into Las Vegas, to entertain, get out the vote and so forth."
"Those are foreign actors, foreign people, influencing the vote in Nevada. You don't hear the Democrats screaming and saying one word about that."
Listening to Sean "Softball" Hannity call upon Conaway to investigate Susan Rice seems timed.
|Susan Rice is denouncing the allegations of "unmasking" of Trump transition members.|
Donald J. Trump and his campaign associates are under fire for allocating resources to Russian hackers and the Republicans are slow walking this scandal. They are trying to chase a shiny coin with the allegations of former National Security Advisor Susan Rice "unmasking" individuals like Michael Flynn.
Trump had accused his predecessor Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower during the election.
The controversy has picked up major attention on the Fox News Channel. They have tried to find "smoking guns" that mostly were filled with water. None of the allegations thrown upon Obama are sticking so they're working on allegations of others working for the National Security Council plotting a sabotage of the Trump legacy.
Republicans are calling for Rice and others to appear in a hearing to explain their role in the allegations.
