Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, February 04, 2018

Four House Intelligence Committee Republicans distanced themselves from President Donald Trump's assertion the previous day that the release of the so-called Nunes memo "totally vindicates" him during their Sunday news show interviews. "I actually don't think it is has any impact on the Russia probe for this reason," Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) began in an interview on CBS News' "Face the Nation" aired Sunday. There is a Russia investigation without a dossier. So to the extent the memo deals with the dossier and the FISA process, the dossier has nothing to do with the meeting at Trump Tower. The dossier has nothing to do with an email sent by Cambridge Analytica. The dossier really has nothing to do with George Papadopoulos' meeting in Great Britain. It also doesn't have anything to do with obstruction of justice. So there's going to be a Russia probe, even without a dossier."

Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) told CNN's Jake Taper, host of "State of the Union" that the Nunes memo and the special counsel probe were "separate" issues. "In my opinion, what we're dealing with is a situation within our FISA court and how we process within our government agencies and I don't think it really has anything to do with that," he said, referencing Mueller's probe. When "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace posed the same question to Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT), Stewart said the memo "doesn't end the need" for Mueller's investigation "at all. I think it would be a mistake for anyone to suggest that the special counsel shouldn't complete his work," he said of Mueller. "I support his work, I want him to finish it. I hope he finishes it as quickly as possible. This memo has frankly nothing at all to do with a special counsel. I hope the special counsel will complete his work and report to the American people," he added. And Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX), also a member of the House Intelligence Committee, told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" that "I would say that DOJ and the FBI should continue doing their job."

The sound you now hear in the distance is Donald Trump's mind exploding as he screams, mutters and cusses up and down the fairways of his golf club today.

Can't wait to see this evening's tweetstorm....
