GOP Senators Admit That Trump Is Obsessed With Ending The Russia Investigation

Published by

After having some tense, private conversations with Donald Trump, Republican senators are indicating that the president has an obsession with making sure the Russia investigation goes away.

According to a report published Wednesday by Politico, Trump “privately vented his frustration over Russia-related matters with at least two other Republican senators this month.”

The president also reportedly whined to the Republican leaders because he doesn’t believe they are doing enough to protect him from the ongoing investigation.

More from the report:

President Donald Trump privately vented his frustration over Russia-related matters with at least two other Republican senators this month, according to people familiar with the conversations — in addition to the president’s public admonishments of Mitch McConnell, John McCain, and Jeff Flake.

 

 

 

Trump’s chewing out of GOP senators, according to people briefed on the calls, reflected the president’s frustration that fellow Republicans would make moves that could damage him, particularly on an investigation that he detests. Trump also complained about the Russian sanctions measure in a call with McConnell earlier this month that devolved into shouting. The New York Times first reported that Trump discussed the Russia probe with McConnell.

 

“It seems he is just always focused on Russia,” one senior GOP aide said.

According to the report, Trump also expressed frustration over two pieces of legislation related to Russia, of course – one dealing with imposing sanctions on the Russians and another meant to protect special counsel Robert Mueller, the man leading the Russia investigation, from being fired by the president.

matter what the topic of conversation seems to be between Trump and Republican lawmakers, the president seemingly always directs it back to Russa, often whining that GOP members of Congress won’t help him push it under the rug.

It is exactly these kinds of interactions between the Russia-obsessed president and key members of the Senate that don’t look good for Trump, particularly as he continues to be investigated for obstructing justice.
