Interesting exchange here. President Trump just went on Twitter and demanded Republicans “take control” of the Hill Russia investigations. For the moment, Chuck Grassley isn’t playing ball. If past is prologue, I wouldn’t assume Grassley’s resistance lasts long.
Here’s Trump’s tweet …
The single greatest Witch Hunt in American history continues. There was no collusion, everybody including the Dems knows there was no collusion, & yet on and on it goes. Russia & the world is laughing at the stupidity they are witnessing. Republicans should finally take control!

Here’s Grassley’s semi-spineful reply …
“I dont intend to have a discussion with the prez on that point.& I hope he doesn’t call me & tell me the same thing that you said he said.” pic.twitter.com/nSvk4ZZYPf
