House Democrats pass yet another laughable measure

American Thinker:

It’s pretty clear that the Democratic caucus that runs the House of Representatives has a low opinion of the intelligence of the American public, but a measure passed Tuesday takes the cake when it comes to wasting the taxpayers’ time, attention span, and money.  At least the media have done them the favor of largely ignoring it.

Intoxicated with the idea of investigating President Trump right out of office, until yesterday, they were able to cling to some pretense of plausibility, even if making ridiculous (and financially ruinous) demands on anyone associated with President Trump, including his children.  Those constraints no longer apply.  On a voice vote, making it impossible to hold any solon responsible for the idiocy:

[L]awmakers approved the Vladimir Putin Transparency Act, a bipartisan [which Republican or Republicans?] bill that accuses Putin of undermining democratic reforms in Russia.

“It is the sense of Congress that the United States should do more to expose the corruption of Vladimir Putin, whose ill-gotten wealth is perhaps the most powerful global symbol of his dishonesty and his persistent efforts to undermine the rule of law and democracy in the Russian Federation,” the bill said.

Are they going to subpoena Putin’s tax returns?

Or will they demand that Vlad appear before a committee for grilling on his wealth?

Do they expect him to fall into a perjury trap?

  1. Obama was the one caught on mic telling Putin’s guy tell Vlad I’ll have a lot more leeway after the election. Their guy undermined America every chance he got and sure sounded pretty chummy with the thug while doing it.

  2. Let me get this right – they publicly condemned a foreign elected leader and said bad things about him to his people and the world? A leader they had no say so in voting for/against.

    What’s the definition of collusion? (secret or illegal cooperation or conspiracy, especially in order to cheat or deceive others.)

  3. Hey Congress, you want to get back at Putin? Make Mueller prosecuted that Russian company he indicted. He’s got the case in mothballs because they called his bluff and mocked him. From Politico:

    “A judge publicly slammed the defense lawyers for a Russian company criminally charged by special counsel Robert Mueller, accusing the firm’s attorneys of submitting unprofessional and inappropriate court filings attacking Mueller’s office and of unwisely peppering legal briefs with jarring quotes taken from movies like Animal House.”

    The gauntlet has been thrown down. Are you going to let Mueller wimp out, Congress? Demand Action!

    “…whose ill-gotten wealth is perhaps the most powerful global symbol of his dishonesty and his persistent efforts to undermine the rule of law and democracy…”
    I think they just got confused and they’re really talking about maduro and venezuela. That makes more sense.
    How does bernie feel about all of this? Last I heard, he’d take his shirt off and sing about good old mommy russia
