On Monday, shutting their eyes to the evidence, GOP lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee said they’d found no evidence of collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election.
The GOP panel also said that while Russian intelligence interfered in the election, they didn’t do so to help Trump―a finding that flatly contradicts the evidence obtained by all of America’s intelligence agencies.
Trump welcomed the news with this tweet, which he posted in all caps:
THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE HAS, AFTER A 14 MONTH LONG IN-DEPTH INVESTIGATION, FOUND NO EVIDENCE OF COLLUSION OR COORDINATION BETWEEN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND RUSSIA TO INFLUENCE THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

As most Internet denizens know full well, the use of All Caps is the equivalent of shouting, and to shout online is considered a monumental breach of netiquette. But it was not just the breach of civilized behavior, since no one really expects that from President Trump anymore. It was his refusal to see the truth even when it’s screaming into his own face:
NOTHING SCREAMS INNOCENCE LIKE ALL-CAPS! https://t.co/q8Z9Dgb7Jx

And not a god damn person with any god damn sense believes this report – not even GOP committee members, who have barely any sense at all.

5 indictments, 13+ guilty pleas, 3 flipped/cooperating witnesses against Trump, Don Jr. on the record admitting to collusion with the Russians during the election…SO FAR. Yeah…..there's nothing to see here. LOL You Trump-Cultist Snowflakes are a joke. Enjoy the impeachment.

THE SPECIAL COUNSEL INVESTIGATING YOUR CRIMES HAS INDICTED YOUR CAMPAIGN MANAGER AND YOUR NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR. HE IS CLOSING IN ON YOU AND YOUR GRIFTER FAMILY. HE HAS ALSO INDICTED 13 RUSSIANS. ALSO — STOP LYING; THE COMMITTEE DID NOT ISSUE FINDINGS.

All the caps in the alphabet and in-house whitewash jobs won't protect you when the Putin house of cards tumbles. The pleas and indictments have already started. I hope you and your cronies have someone who can bake and bring brownies for you when you are in prison. #Mueller

Republican House Intell Comm shut down Russia probe before doing a complete job This is a coverup and a lasting stain on the reputation of what used to be a bipartisan Committee when it was run by Republican Rogers and Democrat Ruppersberger. Politics beat a desire for the truth!

This is the truth. ⤴️
Members of the Committee stated it was BS months ago.
Not surprised by Trump's response though…
Best part, his supporters here are shrinking daily. You see it in the responses.
He'll likely have to be voted out, but I don't think that will be a problem.
