Yeah “no results” just indictments and cooperative plea deals from two members of Trump’s innermost circle…Sure nothing will come of that.  Or…

A foregone conclusion

Yeah, very sure that ethics committee investigation will turn up the evidence of the charges being true that Republicans say they need.

Meanwhile, in your search for "Democrat Hypocrisy" you keep a running tally of Democrats calling for Franken to resign immediately before the ethics committee is finished without having the brain power to realize you are only exposing the hypocrisy of your own position.
You seem more conflicted than usual.
I have no position on Moore since I am not able to vote in Alabama.
I only pointed out the hypocrisy of both democrats and the GOP in the Senate.
Moore will be a political albatross to the GOP in 2018 if he is allowed to serve.
Al Franken similarly threatens democrat chances for Doug Jones in Alabama.

The new expenditures push the cost of the independent counsel's 4 1/2-year inquiry of the president and first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton to $39.2 million. Starr was appointed to continue the investigation of the Clinton's Whitewater land deal. The probe was expanded in January 1998 to include the Lewinsky matter.

With that total, Starr is closing in on the record for spending by an independent counsel: The $47.4 million spent by Lawrence Walsh on the eight-year investigation of Reagan Administration officials involved in the Iran-contra affair.

Mueller should resign because his investigation is too expensive?

LOL.
That your suggestion?

Kid and RSW keep reiterating the same self-serving bit of misunderstanding.
The concept that someone must be a decent human being ahead of their political stances seems to be alien to them. Sign of the times or just a sign of the Party?

I believe the word RSW used was "partisan."

Gowdy's handling of his committee's investigations has been the epitome of partisan.

According to partisan analysis.

According to Gowdy's own analysis:

“Congressional investigations unfortunately are usually overtly political investigations, where it is to one side’s advantage to drag things out,” said Mr. Gowdy, who made his name in Congress as a fearsome investigator of Democrats. He added, “The notion that one side is playing the part of defense attorney and that the other side is just these white hat defenders of the truth is laughable."

If you want to play your partisan game

"It's like raaaaaaaaaain on your wedding day" (which really isn't "ironic", but anyway.....)

Kid ............. keep(s) reiterating the same self-serving bit of misunderstanding.

To them, it is a game of who wins and loses and the loser should shut up

No.

It's GET IN LINE.

And speaking of starting fires...

https://news.vice.com/story/trump-network-private-spies?utm_source=vicenewsfb

A world-wide network of private spiese, inspired by Eric Prince, with consultation from Ollie North.

You can't make this stuff up.

Ollie North, just the sort of man Trump admires.

I heard this last night on CNN, and similutaneously laughed and said "holy shit".

And I think you can make this stuff up, if your last name is Le Carre or Fleming.

3 men [all Muslims] are in court today charged with plotting terror attacks to kill the British Prime Minister and little Prince George.
bambu-ilk are not in the least surprised.

Trump announces Jerusalem as the capital of Israel...sparks outrage in the Muslim world [Jordan going off its brain]..."this could lead to terror attacks".
Certain people don't need much excuse to carry out terror attacks.
