The thing to note with what House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy are saying to Fox News is that they are all wrong. The DOJ IG report determined the opposite was true:
In response to Democrats on the panel, Horowitz said his office "certainly didn't see any evidence" in FBI or Justice Department files that former President Barack Obama asked the U.S. government to investigate Donald Trump's campaign, as Trump has charged.
Nor, Horowitz said, was there any evidence that the Obama administration tapped Trump's phones at Trump Tower.
Horowitz also reaffirmed that the so-called Steele dossier, a collection of partly unverified reports about then-candidate Trump, "had no impact" on the bureau's decision to open the investigation.
I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have gotten away with that on Meet the Press.
I don't know if it's exactly correct to say that McCarthy is taking orders from the Kremlin. I do believe that he knows as well as anyone that there was good reason to suspect a connection between Trump and Russia back in 2016, and that what he's saying here is a bunch of lies.
I do wonder if he's donated that foreign money yet, though. He's the last of the "Young Guns" still standing, but I wonder if he's got anything at all still left in the chamber.
Anyway, #KremlinKevin has a nice ring to it.
