Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, February 05, 2019

Senator Chuck Grassley said Tuesday that he believes Special Counsel Robert Mueller is just weeks away from finishing the report he was hired to produce, 21 months after his Russia probe began. Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked the Iowa Republican when he expected to see the report. 'Within a month, if we see it,' Grassley responded.

Grassley said he supports efforts in Congress that would force the Justice Department to release Mueller's findings about alleged links between Russian agents and Trump's 2016 campaign. Grassley told Hewitt on Tuesday that Mueller's final product should be a public document, with the exception of portions that impact 'national security and [the] privacy of individuals.'

He said he has found common cause with Connecticut Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a consistent Trump antagonist, who also wants transparency. The two are co-sponsoring a bill that would force the DOJ to hand the report over.

I don't trust Sen. Snake in the Grassley at all, if he wants to see this report made public I fear that he thinks that Cheetolini is going to be found not to have colluded with the Russians.

An October surprise would normally occur in an election year, you know, a month or so before we go to the polls? Not a year early.

I doubt it, this is similar to the "signalling" that happened before the Starr report was released.

Speaking of signalling, LCL could be correct since I would expect to see some sense of panic from one of the senior Senators from the GOP if he thought the report was going to hurt Trump.

We shall see.

I wouldn't. They are so out of touch that most of them don't have a clue about anything except the Russian money flowing into their campaign funds. Do you even realize how much stress that relieves for them? They don't even need to be on the phone begging for money, that is a big relief courtesy of Vladimir Putin.
