When Gen. Michael Flynn resigned as National Security Advisor in February, a Republican member of the Senate Intelligence Committee was interviewed on PBS NewsHour about how far their investigation into President Trump's ties with Russia would go.

In a report published by Blasting News, it mentions how the Senator appeared to give every indication that they would limit their investigation into the Russian connection, due to certain boundaries, after the Senator gave the impression that he was unaware that a widely reported story had already been shown to be true -- which even had the confirmation of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer -- that the White House had already been notified of Flynn's actions before he resigned.

Republicans slow dragging the process

In another Blasting News report; the view over what narrative to follow was askew among Republicans. But the consensus among them appeared to be that they had no interest in completing an investigation on President Trump's connection to Russia. In fact, according to the chairman of the Oversight Committee Jason Chaffetz via NPR, he stated that an investigation could take four years to complete. Chaffetz himself was asked this in the context of the persistent investigation he led into Hillary Clinton over her email server and the attacks in Benghazi.

With regard to an investigation on President Trump's wiretap conspiracy theory, Rep.

Adam Schiff recently questioned why the President would make up such a claim when interviewed by George Stephanopoulos on Sunday. As a Democrat, Schiff's suggestion that Trump made up the conspiracy as a distraction is not out of the ordinary but, Republicans who have the reputation of leading the focus away from Trump so far, are now buckling under the pressure of time where they cannot ignore how long the investigation has taken.

Demanding update on FBI investigation

Republican hawks such as Lindsey Graham and John McCain have been very outspoken about President Trump's potential Russian connection, and have even toyed with language such as "dictatorial" when the President attacked and attempted to restrain the press.

But most Republicans gave the appearance that they did not want to be openly critical of the President, even claiming that when they've been confronted by constituents back home; that those activists who were demanding they investigate Trump, were actually not from their districts, placed there by organizers, likely paid and planted by Democrats.

Now, Republicans such as Lindsey Graham and Chuck Grassley have gotten impatient with FBI director James Comey, who they have threatened to subpoena him to get an update on their investigation on Trump, saying that the FBI has not been very forthcoming with updates. Grassley has even threatened to hold up one of Trump's nominees Rod Rosenstein in order to get answers.

Graham told MSNBC that Congress needed to know what was going on. He feels that If there's a criminal investigation taking place while there are multiple investigations at once, then they're going to run into each other. When Department of Justice attorney general Jeff Sessions was under pressure to recuse himself from the investigation, Republicans said Democrat's calls for him to also resign was ridiculous and would say that recusing himself from the investigation because he was part of Trump's campaign would be enough.

Trump holding onto wiretap claims

All week and now way past the "deadline" for the White House to provide evidence that former President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower, two rather "extraordinary" happenings took place.

One was the near 20 minutes spent between Sean Spicer and a reporter over the wiretap claims, which the Press Secretary embarrassingly refuted with everything he had, even misinformation. And another incident on Friday when President Trump "dragged" German Chancellor Angela Merkel into the conspiracy, saying that Wiretapping by the U.S. was what they both had in common.
