(Before It's News)

Yesterday, we had GOP senators come out for an against investigating former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn’s contacts with the Russian ambassador. Significantly, the Senate leadership seems favorably disposed to sanction an investigation of some type. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul voiced his opinion yesterday:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) says there’s not much need for Congress to investigate former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s talks with Russia, warning it would distract from the GOP’s agenda.

“That might be excessive. I think it looks like the president has handled the situation, and unless there’s some kind of other evidence of malfeasance, this sounds like something that was internal White House politics, and it looks like the president’s handled it,” Paul told Fox News on Tuesday.

“I just don’t think it’s useful to be doing investigation after investigation, particularly of your own party,” he said.

“We’ll never even get started with doing the things we need to do like repealing ObamaCare if we’re spending our whole time having Republicans investigate Republicans. I think it makes no sense.”

My problem with Congress investigating Flynn is threefold. First, if what Flynn did was criminal they have no business mucking about it it. Second, if what Flynn did was not criminal there is no reason to be mucking about in it. Third, don’t you have real work to do?

The only conceivable reason to sponsor an investigation into this matter is to damage the administration and it is more than a little unclear to me why McConnell would want to sign up for that.
