As Congress Ron DeSantis (R-FL) told Fox News,
“With a special counsel, it’s not like a normal prosecutor, where you have all these other cases you got to worry about. This is all you’re doing. And so, if you don’t have obvious evidence of a crime, your incentive is to just find something.”
Congressman DeSantis says it’s time to “Put up or shut up” and get on with business.
H/T Conservative Tribune:
Special counsel Robert Mueller has made several ominous moves in his investigation of President Donald Trump and his associates, and one congressman is tired of the witch hunt.
Congressman Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., introduced an amendment earlier this week to restrict Mueller’s ambiguous and wide open investigation into Trump’s unproven connections to Russia.
DeSantis’ bold provision would terminate funding for Mueller’s probe six months after the amendment was passed, forcing Mueller to show what he has rather than stalling for years.
The provision would also limit the scope of Mueller’s probe, meaning the special counselor would not be allowed to investigate any matters that occurred prior to June of 2015, which is when Trump announced his candidacy for president.
The amendment is very serious, and could be voted on in the House when members of Congress return next week following the August recess.
The House Rules Committee will determine whether the amendment will be tossed out or can move forward for a vote on the House floor.
DeSantis released a statement arguing Mueller’s appointment as special counsel “didn’t identify a crime to be investigated and practically invites a fishing expedition.”
“Congress should use its spending power to clarify the scope and limit the duration of this investigation,” DeSantis said.
“[Deputy Attorney General Rod] Rosenstein has said that the DOJ doesn’t conduct fishing expeditions; the corollary to this admonition should be that Congress will not fund a fishing expedition.”
Coming as a surprise to no one, establishment Republicans like House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., have indicated they believe Mueller should be left alone and Trump should refrain from firing him.
“I think the best advice is to let Robert Mueller do his job,” Ryan said in June.
Blocking Mueller’s witch hunt from wasting more taxpayer money and dragging this out for years should be an important issue for all Americans, especially given that Democrats have failed to prove Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.
Tangible evidence supports collusion between former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, yet Democrats are sweeping the “tarmac meeting” under the rug.
Former FBI Director James Comey testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in May that the bureau determined there was no evidence of collusion between Trump campaign members and Russia officials.
Are we to believe Mueller is a better investigator than the entire FBI?
If Mueller wants to investigate a REAL crime, he could look into the tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and former AG Loretta Lynch. Like that will ever happen, considering Mueller is a longtime supporter of the Clintons. Or better yet, how about just investigate all the emails on the private server? Or here’s one…how about investigate the crime of Clinton’s campaign stealing the nomination and committing voter fraud against Bernie Sanders and his supporters? Isn’t that the real reason DNC staffer Seth Rich died? Or how about the death of Shawn Lucas? Better yet, how about the death of Bernie Whisenant? Those 3 deaths alone should keep you busy enough…since they are all tied together with the DNC and voter fraud and fake passports.
We already know that the DNC secretly collaborated with Clinton’s campaign to promote her candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination over that of Bernie Sanders.
Clearly, the Clinton campaign needed to lessen the political damage, especially since Democrats all thought Hillary was going to win after her campaign stole the nomination. What an embarrassment which she didn’t.
I mean come on people! This was all about Clinton’s campaign working to “get the press to focus on … the prospect that Russia had not only hacked and stolen emails from the DNC, but that it had done so to help Donald Trump and hurt Hillary.”
How many of you really bought that BS? Not me, that’s for sure. That’s because the MSM has down everything it can think of to distract Americans from the truth. The truth is the DNC server was NOT hacked? As I have stated many times before, without Seth, there is no hacking story. It’s why the DNC didn’t let the FBI examine their server and STILL won’t. The DNC doesn’t want Americans to know the REAL truth…that being there is NO hacker AND there is NO Trump-Russian collusion. Period.
So, thank you Congressman Ron DeSantis! Finally someone has the balls to pull the funds on Mueller’s investigation…which is nothing more than a WITCH HUNT!
It’s about time!
Rep. Ron DeSantis, is a potential candidate for Florida governor in 2018. The Fund for Florida’s Future was established to encourage DeSantis to run in 2018 for Governor of Florida. So far, approximately $1.6 million has been raised. You can support the Fund for Florida’s Future by donating here.
As we all know, Florida is a key state and needs to continue to maintain a true conservative as Governor.
On a side note, speaking of conservatives, Ted Cruz will be coming to Ponte Vedra Beach to appear with Congressman DeSantis at the October 6th St. John’s County Lincoln Day Dinner. In addition, on October 8th, Judge Jeanine Pirro will join DeSantis as honored guests at the Volusia County Lincoln Day Dinner.
Did I mention they were CONSERVATIVES?!
