Grampa Is Yelling Again After A Cynical, Complicit, Abberrant GOP Finds Him Totally Innocent Of Everything

Inexplicably, many responded with skepticism, including at least one GOP committee member. Rep. Tom Rooney - he's retiring, surprise - told CNN of course there's evidence Russia helped Trump and "we’ve gone completely off the rails." Yup, said pretty much everyone. Rep. Adam Schiff said the GOP left "questions unanswered, leads unexplored, countless witnesses uncalled... If Russians have leverage over the President, GOP has decided that it would rather not know." CNN's Phil Mudd, a former CIA analyst, was more forthcoming: “If this report were written on toilet paper, I wouldn’t stoop to wipe my ass with it.” A jubilant Trump, meanwhile, took to Twitter to issue a caps-locked, error-ridden declaration of vindication that "THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE" - nope, just its complicit GOP sycophants - "HAS FOUND NO EVIDENCE OF COLLUSION." The general response: "We know you're guilty, you know you're guilty, Mueller knows you're guilty." Also, "Nothing screams innocence like using all caps" and "Uh oh, why is Grampa yelling again?" Because this is where we are. A reminder, hopefully for not much longer: None of this is normal.
