In a new oped, Congressman Mark Meadows of the 11th District laments the way Congress has gotten bogged down in the hysteria over (so far) unsubstantiated charges of some kind of collusion between the Trump administration and Russia.
“Congress has a duty to hold government officials accountable when necessary, but it is counterproductive for the media and some of my Democrat colleagues to throw unsubstantiated claims regarding White House officials against a wall repeatedly to see what sticks. Media and political hysterics work in opposition to — not in favor of — getting to truth and transparency. …
“Let’s also remember that through the frenzy, no formal charge has been leveled against anyone in the administration, no direct evidence uncovered and no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia confirmed. This is nothing warranting wall-to-wall speculation from the pundit class. The hysterics surrounding Russia merely serve to distract from accomplishing the priorities of the American people — and for what, partisan gain?”
