Rep. Conaway WALKS BACK the shocking thing he said about the House Intel report…

Liberals freaked out when Rep. Conaway said something really odd during his interview this morning on Meet the Press:

What? Doesn’t that completely undermine what everyone is saying about that report?!?!?

Soooo he just walked it back. Said he made a mistake.

A spokeswoman for Rep. Mike Conaway said he misspoke Sunday morning when he said the House Intelligence Committee was not tasked with investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

Conaway, R-Texas, was the leader of the committee’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. He told Chuck Todd, host of NBC’s “Meet The Press,” the committee was not tasked with investigating collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

But, his spokeswoman said he misspoke and actually meant to say “obstruction,” as in whether Trump firing FBI Director James Comey was obstruction of justice.

“As Mr. Conaway and Chuck Todd were discussing the firing of Andrew McCabe, Mr. Conaway remarked that HPSCI’s Russia Investigation wasn’t tasked with looking into the firing of James Comey, McCabe, or other issues related to allegations of obstruction of justice,” said Emily Hytha, spokeswoman for Conaway. “During that discussion, Mr. Conaway misspoke when he indicated the Committee did not investigate collusion, when he clearly meant obstruction.”



Very odd. But people make mistakes right? Right.

What this DOES highlight though is that we just don’t know what is in Mueller’s investigation. It could be nothing or it could be a lot. We just don’t know. So it’s just as stupid to hope that Trump will be impeached, as it is to say that Mueller’s probe should be shut down because there’s no evidence of anything. We don’t know.

So have yourselves a merry little open thread. 

Here’s some comment fodder – the opening to SNL was actually pretty funny I thought:
