“Provide evidence of collusion or end the investigation.”
On Thursday, Indiana Rep. Todd Rokita (R) issued a warning to Robert Mueller and his perpetual investigation: “provide evidence of collusion or end the investigation.”
“Mueller has to show his cards or fold his hand,” Rokita said. “The witch hunt must end.”
Rokita said he will file a resolution this week calling for an end to the special counsel’s investigation in Russia’s interference in the 2016 elections — including any possible coordination with Trump officials — unless investigators can “show evidence about Trump obstructing anything.”
According to ijr.com:
Rokita has introduced a House resolution demanding Mueller provide the evidence to the House of Representatives or he is to end his investigation within 30 days. “The investigation has likely cost the American taxpayers over $17 million,” he said.
Rokita further explained the reasoning behind his resolution in a press release:
“The Mueller investigation has dragged on for nearly a year at a cost of tens of millions of dollars without producing a shred of evidence of collusion—the matter it was tasked with investigating in the first place. I expect a valid progress report within the next 30 days or the investigation should be terminated.
No one in government should be without accountability, and for many Americans, this investigation looks more like an attempt by the Washington elite to destroy President Trump with innuendo, leaks, and baseless allegations than to provide justice.”
Rokita has been a frequent critic of Mueller’s team and has even claimed that the investigation is politically biased. “He’s not a trusted source. He’s not going to be a neutral umpire,” Rokita said in April. “That probe should end because it has found nothing.”
In a press release, Rokita states that he “believes in the rule of law, and accountability for those tasked with investigating alleged violations of the law.”
GOP lawmaker introduces resolution to end Mueller probe. Todd ROKITA, IN, files a resolution that says if Mueller’s investigation continues more than another month it “threatens to question the legitimacy of future elections held in the United States.”
