There are only two conclusions to draw here: McCarthy-ism is still alive in the USA and republicans in congress are more concerned with witch hunts than doing something -anything- constructive. This obsession makes zero sense, especially considering how many problems ther are to be solved. It was clear long before now that this is a witch hunt. The difference is that the people of Salem had an excuse – one theory being that people were eating rye that was was contaminated with a fungus that is a hallucinogen, not unlike LSD. So what excuse do republicans have?
House Republicans are pressing forward with their contempt of Congress civil case over Operation Fast and Furious despite the release of a book-length investigative report that lawmakers on both sides of the aisle praised as comprehensive.
