Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., on Sunday lamented that “we … obsess” about the impeachment of President Donald Trump when the more “troubling problems” like with the FBI’s conduct during probes of Hillary Clinton’s emails and Russia’s election meddling.
In an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” Johnson blasted the “bizarre” rush to impeach Trump in the House “and then, all of a sudden, [House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.] is sitting on it.”
“I’ve been conducting an oversight into related matters since literally March 2015,” he said. “”My committee’s work started with, really, the Hillary Clinton email scandal, the FBI’s investigation of that. That, in many respects, morphed into the whole Russian collusion with the Trump campaign hoax.”
“We just held a hearing with [Department of Justice Inspector General] Michael Horowitz last week. There’s an awful lot of troubling problems with what happened inside those investigations," he continued.
“So, we can obsess on this impeachment. We can obsess on the trial. But what I’m trying to do is I’m trying to get the American people the truth of what all happened. Something very strange has happened.”
He added that the House charges against Trump are “pretty thin gruel,” and dismissed calls for witnesses at the Senate impeachment trial.
“I don’t see anything impeachable in [the charges],” he said. “It’s not the job of the Senate to make the case that the House should have made in their …articles of impeachment.
