Thank you for your honesty.

GOP Rep. Tom Rooney Breaks Ranks On Russia Report: ‘We’ve Lost All Credibility’
House Intelligence Committee member says “there is evidence” Russians worked to help Trump.

A GOP member of the House Intelligence Committee is breaking ranks with his fellow Republicans over a contentious report released Monday on Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible ties to the campaign of Donald Trump.

Rep. Tom Rooney (R-Fla.) told CNN that “there is evidence” the Russians worked to help Trump.

“I don’t know that necessarily there was a full-fledged campaign to do everything that they could to help elect Donald Trump,” he added. “I think that their goal was chaos.”

The draft report released by his fellow Republicans on Monday claims otherwise, saying Russian President Vladimir Putin interfered in the election but not with the goal of aiding Trump.

However, he also justified ending the committee’s investigation.

“We’ve gone completely off the rails, and now we’re just basically a political forum for people to leak information to drive the day’s news,” Rooney said. “We’ve lost all credibility, and we’re going to issue probably two different reports, unfortunately.”

He was referring to the likelihood that the committee’s Democratic members will issue their own report challenging the findings.

“GOP just shut down House Intel investigation, leaving questions unanswered, leads unexplored, countless witnesses uncalled, subpoenas unissued,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who also sits on the committee, wrote on Twitter.

Well holy shit...there's a Republican politician who has a single integrity synapse still firing in his brain. I'm so fucking impressed. Do we need to go into the list of how Rooney voted on the ACA repeal, or how he voted on the tax bill, or how he voted for the eight years when Obama was president. No we don't.

Tom Rooney is an anti-choice, pro-gun, pro big military spending, anti-EPA, bigot Muslim hating, pro-indefinite detention, neo-confederate, gay bashing, right winjob jerk-off. It's a little fucking late for you to begin exhibiting a conscience, asshole.

It could be Rooney is doing this as a preemptive strike in the coming general election to protect his seat. It appears, at this time, the Democrats will take the House and by breaking with his fellow republicans he is signaling his constituents that he is working in a bi-partisan manner with the Democrats.

Take what he says with a larger grain of salt.
