He knows TheRUMP is going down. The house doesn't have ANY power. Just bullshit investigations.

Where's the indictment?

Folks passing judgement without even seeing what he's being charged with and what they have in evidence that convinced a Grand Jury?

Since when does the House get to look into an ongoing criminal case?

There is a reason why the Judicial branch and a separation of powers exist.
Hopefully, someone can get that through McCarthy's thick skull.

If there's nothing to the criminal indictment, the case will get dismissed ... kind of like Trump's 62 civil attempts to challenge the election got rejected.
