The Russia collusion thing has in fact been a witch hunt all along, and needs to end now. Bob Woodward, the same author the lefties loved when he released a Trump tell-all book just a few short months ago, said recently he has found no evidence of collusion.

That's right, Bob Woodward, the famed Watergate journalist, cable news star and tell-all tattle tale says there is no evidence of collusion.

Woodward recently told radio interviewer Hugh Hewitt he spent two years looking for evidence of collusion while researching his new book Fear and found none. "I did not, and of course, I looked for it, looked for it hard," he said.

Powerful senators on both sides of the aisle have also stated on the record that there is no evidence of collusion. So why is Mueller still employed?

How many more Thanksgivings will Special Counsel Bob Mueller continue to enjoy a blank check and free reign to investigate anyone and anything he chooses?

It should end right now. All of this time, energy and money wasted on nothing is obscene.

It's time for the Department of Justice to wrap this up and move on to something of much greater import--such as the Clinton e-mail debauchery.
