The "witch hunt" that is the Russia investigation is obstructing the government from doing its work, author David Horowitz told Newsmax TV.
During an interview on "America Talks Live," Horowitz told host Bill Tucker the ongoing investigations into whether President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russia are getting in the way of government business.
"This witch hunt – the Democrats now, it's six months old really – this witch hunt about Russia, which is based on nothing and no evidence, has created havoc," Horowitz said. "It's obstructed the government, which is what the Democrats want, from doing its job, from getting legislation, and important things that create jobs and bring people healthcare and so forth.
"But worse than that, it's completely destroyed or impacted our relations with Russia, which is a major power, and who has some common interest with us because they're threatened by Islamic radicals."

Horowitz was also asked if it would be prudent for Trump to fire Robert Mueller, who is serving as the Department of Justice's special counsel in the Russia probe. Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy raised that possibility Monday.
"These prosecutors, they go on fishing expeditions. [Mueller] in particular, what's the crime that he's investigating? There isn't even a crime. Nobody's come up with a crime, which is terrible," said Horowitz, founder of the the David Horowitz Freedom Center, and author of "Big Agenda: President Trump's Plan to Save America."
"I don't think Trump can do it, though. I don't know what the legal situation is, but if Congress can do it, they should. But Trump can't do it."
Horowitz added later, "this special prosecutor is nothing but mischief. Bad deal, they should abolish the whole idea of special prosecutors."
