The release of the Russia investigation transcripts reinforce the fact that the investigation and everything that went with it amounted to little more than a colossal waste of the nation’s time.

Tucker Carlson made this point fiercely in his monologue on Friday night.

Carlson correctly points out that while Democrats chased their false Russia narrative, we neglected important issues like infrastructure and the rise of China.

He also suggested that the ringmaster, Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) should resign as a result.

Tucker Carlson slams ‘sociopath’ Schiff, calls for resignation over Russia investigation

Tucker Carlson blasted the Washington establishment Friday night for getting bogged down in the Russia investigation for three years and ignoring other important issues that have come to light as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Issues like the dangerous rise of Chinese global dominance, the porousness of our domestic borders, this country’s crumbling infrastructure, government corruption and incompetence,” Carlson said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “We’re talking about all of this. Over the past two months, you may have asked yourself, ‘Why weren’t we talking about these things before? They’re important.’ Well, it’s a good question, and there’s a simple answer to it.

“The answer is, we didn’t have time. There was no time to consider the fundamental health of America because we were busy talking about Russia,” Carlson went on. “In Washington, Russia is all we talked about for three years. All normal business in the capital city came to a halt as we embarked on a bizarre scavenger hunt in search of Vladimir Putin’s spies.”…

“Adam Schiff is a sociopath. He will do or say anything to achieve power. He is unfit to hold office. He should resign,” Carlson said.

Watch the whole thing below:

Adam Schiff should resign, but probably won’t. He knows he has the media on his side. And let’s not forget the media’s role in all of this.

Lee Smith writes at the New York Post:

Adam Schiff lied about the Trump investigation — and the media let him

No matter what evidence surfaced to prove the collusion story wrong, the media continued to credential the destructive conspiracy theory. It didn’t matter when Objective Medusa showed that former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele’s reports were paid for by the Clinton campaign. Or when the Nunes memo explained that the FBI used the Steele dossier to obtain a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign. It didn’t even matter when resistance messiah Robert Mueller concluded there was no evidence of collusion.

After Mueller filed his report last spring, CNN’s Jake Tapper said that “I don’t know anybody who got anything wrong.” Don’t expect anyone in the mainstream media to admit gross journalistic malpractice this time either. The tragic fact is that once-prestigious press organizations, including CNN as well as MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post, weren’t fooled by the collusion hoax. They were an essential part of it.
