Republicans are celebrating the cliff notes version of the Mueller investigation, which –we’re told– proves the President is not a Russian asset. While the other 16 investigations into Trumpworld continue, the administration has decided to intensify efforts to punish its enemies and/or move forward with its agenda (sometimes that’s the same thing).

The GOP’s enemies list is a long one, starting with Democratic officials, including autistic children, and ending with Obamacare.

First up, the GOP wants to investigate the Obama administration for failing to react to evidence Russia was interfering in the 2016 election.

I’m sure they’ll want to start with testimony from Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who reacted to a classified briefing on the subject by questioning the facts gathered by intelligence agencies and refusing to participate in a bipartisan denunciation of Russian meddling.

Next up are Democrats and others who had the gall to suggest something not right was going on.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has called for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff to step down from the post or resign from Congress, while Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham announced he would investigate whether the Justice Department and FBI influenced the 2016 election to try to stop Trump.

Also –surprise,surprise– on the clap back list was the press.

Tim Murtaugh, the Trump campaign’s director of communications, sending a memo to TV news producers with a blacklist of guests who regularly have criticized the president on talk shows.

The president weighed in from the White House lawn accusing the media of biased coverage and attack them as the “enemy of the people.” His conservative supporters echoed the sentiment with Fox News‘ Sean Hannity tweeting “We will hold every fake news media liar member accountable.”
