Yes, even beneath the shiny layer of winning that President Trump is currently spit polishing lies an abomination of judicial power known as #RussiaGate.
We all know the story, first delivered in juicy, salacious tidbits by Hillary Clinton during the debates of the 2016 presidential election: Donald Trump is apparently a double agent working for the Kremlin who will spend every waking hour of his presidency handing America over to Vladimir Putin.
Or something like that. It’s getting difficult to keep up with the iterations of the radical left at this point. All we know is that, somehow, this investigation is still going, even after no evidence of collusion has been detected by any investigators.
In fact, one could say that the collateral damage done by this investigation has largely behooved President Trump in so much that the FBI has been outed as a partisan, politicking agency who has hellbent on stopping and stifling Trump and the republicans from the moment they entered the race.

This horrific fact may be uncomfortable, but it is completely necessary to our growth as a nation.
Now, as the country seems to be at each other’s throats, a number of high profile congressmen and women are calling for an end to the nonsense. One of the most vocal agitators today was Trey Gowdy, whose fiery persona was on full display for Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Gowdy’s excoriation marked a stunning moment at the already-tense House Judiciary Committee hearing, amid a months-long battle between congressional Republicans and the Department of Justice over its handling of both the Russia probe and Hillary Clinton email investigation.
At the hearing, Gowdy, R-S.C., spoke to frustration over the protracted Russia investigation that Rosenstein oversees, suggesting that despite a host of charges against Trump-tied figures, the investigation has not found evidence of presidential wrongdoing.“We’ve seen the bias, we need to see the evidence,” Gowdy said. “If you have evidence of wrongdoing by any member of the Trump campaign, present it to the damn grand jury. If you have evidence that this president acted inappropriately, present it to the American people.”
“Whatever you got, finish it the hell up, because this country is being torn apart,” he said.
Gowdy certainly isn’t wrong here, and Rosenstein must understand that this is the sentiment of the American people as well.
Approval ratings for the Mueller-led investigation have been on a steady decline in recent weeks…something that has even prompted concern from the likes of John Oliver of HBO. Should this rate fall below 50%, according to Oliver, the President could find justification in ending the entire charade early.
