If Donald Trump hoped that the private briefing on the “spy” he insists infiltrated his campaign on orders from the Obama administration, a briefing from which he refused to allow Democrats to attend, would earn him the support of his party members on backing the conspiracy theory he would really like the country to believe, he could not have been more wrong.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was not impressed by whatever happened during that briefing. In fact, he said that he continues to believe that the investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller should continue and that Trump’s demands for an investigation into the Justice Department by the Inspector General’s office should continue, as well.

Speaking to NPR, McConnell said:

‘The two investigations going on that I think will give us the answers to the questions that you raise — the [inspector general] investigation in the Justice Department and the Mueller investigation. I support both of them, and I don’t really have anything to add to this subject based upon the Gang of Eight briefing that we had today, which was classified.’

Unlike Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), who was part of Trump’s transition team and should never have been allowed near the investigation, McConnell has remained somewhat distanced from the endless controversy and conspiracy theories pushed by President Trump. At least two members of Congress who have been supportive of those claims, Nunes and Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), have announced that they will not be running for reelection.
