Congress: Tell us what you know about Russian interference on our elections, and when did you learn about it?

Grenell: I know nothing! I put my fingers in my ears and go LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA.

When you're a sufficiently angry jackass people do what you want. I guess.

Just another example of Fat Nixon giving the finger to oversight because he is the most transparent president ever.

Has Shaky Susan Collins gotten the vapors over the fact that he has not learned his lesson yet?

He and his boss would ignore it. And Rs have a majority on the Supreme Court so there's nothing anybody could do about it.

- Trump's Intelligence Chief

Talk about your make work jobs... he must feel like a chef with no groceries.

Maybe Trump should start sending his Intelligence Chief daily briefings so he'd know what to say.

OTOH, that would be the blind leading the blind.

He will just ignore it.

Anyone who is shocked by this is stupid.

Fat Nixon picked him because he will be 100% loyal to Fat Nixon first and do his job only if that doesn't conflict with goal #1.

This is how dictators operate.

Well, giving Grenell the benefit of the doubt, he might really not know anything about foreign interference in our elections? Thought that was how he got the job?

Well, we CERTAINLY wouldn't want to upset the President just to brief Congress to do its job!

That would be ridiculous!
