Should the House Investigate Possible Collusion Between the Trump Campaign and Russia?

by Countable | Updated on 11.8.18

What’s the story?

  • Rep. Adam Schiff of California, who is poised to assume command of the House Intelligence Committee, has vowed to investigate Donald Trump after the GOP “completely abdicated” their oversight of the president. This includes reopening the investigation into Russian meddling during the 2016 presidential race.
  • In March, Republicans closed the House Intelligence Committee’s probe into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, concluding there was no collusion. Schiff has said that ending the probe was a “terrible disservice to the country and the American people."
“There are serious and credible allegations the Russians may possess financial leverage over the president, including perhaps the laundering of Russian money through his businesses,” Schiff wrote in an Oct. 12 op-ed. “It would be negligent to our national security not to find out.”
  • Trump has threatened a counter-investigation, posting on twitter:

What do you think?

    Absolutely they should investigate. They (Congress) didn’t before and the blue wave 🌊 sucked them under. People want accountability and answers - and they will not just forget.

    If there was no collusion, then let the investigation show that, and allow us to move on from this national travesty of uncertainty.

    Do everything possible to derail anything and everything from Adam Schiff. He is a top shelf dirtbag.

    I am not opposed, but I'd like to see the evidence that the Mueller investigation has compiled first. Or rather, I'd like to know that Congress has seen enough to merit further investigation. I'd rather the House investigate other matters that aren't already being addressed by Mueller first: corruption, child separation, etc.

    For sure. The hand waving “nothing to see here, pay not attention to the man behind the curtain” act by the Republicans is just that. A act. Go get them. We must root out that corruption.

    Get off this dumb stuff and Grow Up! So if Trump colluded with the Russians are you saying that the Russians are to be given credit for our economy and all the jobs out there? Are the Russians responsible for Our Military buildup in Eastern Europe? Are the Russians behind the move to protect Our Borders? Get Off The Dumb Stuff! Please!

    It is already been investigated and nothing found. The only way it would change is if the Democrats made up more lies like they did with Kavanaugh.

    I think the current House should focus on keeping the Mueller-led investigation going until conclusive rather than stoking the flame of a potentially dangerous abuse of executive power to stop it.

    ANY time there is probable cause to investigate, it should be done. It could be me, you, a Ceo or the president. Political affiliations should not be a reason to look the other way. No one is above the law.

    I expect a full accounting of the campaign and the transition of the 2016 election.

    There is far too much smoke here to suggest there isn’t a fire. The special council has already uncovered and indicted dozens of people involved in corruption related to this president. A reasonable person should suspect there is only more to come. For those who don’t see it this way - what’s the harm in further investigation if there is nothing to hide?

    As a counterintelligence matter, they absolutely should investigate what ties Russia had in its operations against America. The only way to understand the operation is to fully investigate it, and willfully ignoring it because the person in power now is a part of your political party is dereliction of duty. We tolerate way too much soft corruption as is, blatant corruption needs to be stamped out.

    Like the Kavanaugh allegations, more banana republic shenanigans from the left: the Democrat party.
