GOP two-faced on Russia

Many GOP leaders have largely kept their distance as House and Senate intelligence committees and the Senate Judiciary Committee conduct their separate Russia probes, which are independent of the current one by special counsel Robert Mueller, a former FBI director. But as reported by Politico, most ardent Donald Trump supporters say it’s time to clamp down. “Three investigations is just way too many,” said Rep. Andy Biggs R-Ariz. “Some of them need to step back and wait until we see what evidence is educed.”

I don’t recall Biggs or other GOP members of Congress complaining about the nine investigations into Benghazi. And speaking of evidence, none of those investigations produced any evidence of wrongdoing by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Sounds like Biggs may be spitting in the wind with his complaints so early on into the Trump-Russia investigations. After all, we are at the tip of the iceberg, as we move forward with the Russia probes.
