RNC Chair McDaniel Calls for ‘An End’ to Russia-Trump Collusion Investigations

During her interview on Fox News Sunday this morning, RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel told Chris Wallace she’s calling for an end to the investigations into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

She said this “fishing expedition” needs to stop, which led to Wallace asking rather directly, “Are you calling for an end to the Senate and House Intelligence Committee investigations?”

This was McDaniel’s full answer:

“I’m calling for an end to the investigations about President Trump’s campaign colluding with the Russians. There’s been no evidence of it. I don’t think that should continue. Of course we need to figure out what Russia did with regards to the election, the president has said that. But not yet do you have a single senator saying that there is definitive evidence that there’s been any collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians. That needs to stop.”

Wallace also asked her if she thinks the same about the special counsel’s investigation. She said, “Well, that’s going to run its course, we’ll see what happens. I think it should end quickly. I want them to get to a final conclusion soon, because this needs to end.”

“Let’s let the special investigation take its course and end,” McDaniel concluded, “but let’s not keep finding ways to open new investigations.”
