The Never Ending Story Of The Clown Car.

Have you noticed the Republicans like to hold hearings that find nothing. Around and around we go, spending millions on stupid little investigating to find absolutely nothing.
Under conservative media pressure, Jim Jordan launches new probe
Conservative media told Jim Jordan to care about a conspiracy theory involving a prosecutor in the Manhattan district attorney’s office. He’s complying.

House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan sat down with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo earlier this week, and the conservative host expressed her frustration with the House Republicans’ seemingly endless parade of inconsequential investigations.

As the two discussed Donald Trump’s ongoing criminal trial in New York, Bartiromo told the Ohio Republican, “Well, look, I mean, at this point, American citizens are asking, ‘What can you do about it?’ I mean, look, with all due respect, people are sick and tired of congressional investigations that go nowhere.”
Um… Ah… I don’t know how tell you. But it is because you right-wing news media keep pushing these stupid conspiracy theories on the politicians. I mean theories like…
The far-right congressman understood the message — and acted accordingly. The conservative Washington Times reported:

House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan accused the Justice Department of coordinating with New York County District Attorney Alvin Bragg in a “politicized” prosecution of former President Donald Trump. Mr. Jordan demanded in a letter recently to Attorney General Merrick B. Garland that Mr. Garland hand over documents and information about Matthew Colangelo, a former senior Justice Department official who now is a lead prosecutor for Mr. Bragg in the Trump hush money case.

Chances are, most of the public has never heard of Matthew Colangelo, though your weird uncle who consumes conservative media all day is very likely aware of him.
Yup… here we go again! Another crazy conspiracy theory. How many millions will this cost us the tax payer?
Conservative conspiracy theorists, however, came to believe Colangelo's work in the Manhattan district attorney’s office was actually evidence of the Biden administration secretly pulling the strings in the hush money case, as part of an elaborate election plot against Trump.

It’s this conspiracy theory that Jordan is now taking seriously — or at least pretending to take seriously — as evidenced by the Ohioan’s latest allegations directed at the Justice Department.
This is getting dangerously close to becoming a “Cuckoo Award” winner.
