Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., called for the end of investigations into President Trump on Wednesday, saying Americans would not “learn” anything more from such actions.

“When is enough enough? You know, you’ve had 22 months to investigate, you’ve had $25 million that was spent with 18 lawyers, 2,800 subpoenas, 500 search warrants and 500 witness interviews. At one point, you say, ‘okay, we’ve done enough investigations,'” Steube said on “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” referring to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.

“And, with all that investigation, it comes with no collusion, and the attorney general decides not to have any obstruction charges,” he told Neil Cavuto.

TRUMP VOWS HE’D TAKE IMPEACHMENT FIGHT TO SUPREME COURT

Trump on Wednesday vowed to fight back against congressional Democrats issuing subpoenas for administration officials, while calling their latest bid to bring in former White House counsel Don McGahn for testimony “ridiculous.”

Steube said that enough time and effort was spent in the Russia collusion investigation and that it was time for the country to move on.

DEM LEADERS REJECT IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS

“What are we going to learn from these hearings from the people that are part of this report that we haven’t learned already?” Steube asked.

The congressman also said he had no interest in hearing from McGahn and believed the president had every right to claim executive privilege.

The Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential field is a “blob of socialists,” and they’re making the party too “extreme,” the director of strategic communications for President Trump’s re-election campaign said Tuesday.

Marc Lotter made the comments during an appearance on “The Todd Starnes Show.”

“What we’re talking about right now is just a giant blob of socialists,” Lotter told host Todd Starnes, “and they’re trying to compete with each other to see who can be the most radical, the most out of step, offer the most free things that no one knows how to pay for.

RUSH LIMBAUGH: BIDEN DEMS BEST CHANCE AND HE HAS NO CHANCE

“And whichever one of those 21, or 30 — whatever it’s going to end up being — candidates that emerges from their primary is going to be broke, broken, battered,” Lotter continued, “and inherit the keys to a Democrat National Committee that is broke, still taking on millions of dollars and that has no appreciable national program in place and they’re going to be competing against a president who’s getting results.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden is expected to enter the Democratic field this week, making him the 20th candidate seeking the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.

Lotter touted the U.S. economy’s performance under President Trump and also mocked Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., for his appearance on a CNN Town Hall event Monday, where Sanders said felons should be permitted to vote, including the Boston Marathon bomber.

“The Democrat field last night out there talking about the Boston Marathon bomber voting from prison — a terrorist who killed Americans, allowing that person to vote — it’s a perfect example of how radical and extreme the Democrat socialist party has become,” Lotter said.

Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain appeared on “Hannity” Tuesday night, where he addressed whether past allegations of sexual harassment were a factor in his decision to withdraw from consideration for a seat on the Federal Reserve’s board.

“Those accusations had nothing to do with my decision,” Cain told host Sean Hannity. “My decision was driven by … collecting all the information, and also finding out from administration staffers the things that I could and could not do.

CAIN’S BID FOR FED FACES SETBACK

“And when I started to look at the things that I could not do,” Cain continued, “that is like taking a stallion, keeping him in the stables, and not let him run. I couldn’t do the things that I enjoy.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Cain asked not to be nominated.

“And when I started to look at the things that I could not do, that is like taking a stallion, keeping him in the stables, and not let him run.”

— Herman Cain

“My friend Herman Cain, a truly wonderful man, has asked me not to nominate him for a seat on the Federal Reserve Board. I will respect his wishes. Herman is a great American who truly loves our Country!” Trump tweeted.

Sexual harassment and infidelity allegations hurt Cain’s 2012 presidential bid and resurfaced after Trump initially said he intended to nominate him for the Fed board.

Cain, the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, said last week on Fox Business Network that he had no plans to withdraw from consideration.

Cain told Hannity that limitations on speaking openly eventually led him to withdraw his nomination.

“If I have become the Federal Reserve governor, I would have been limited in terms of what I could talk about and tell people the truth, whereas in this environment, I am unlimited in being able to say what I want, when I want, to whoever if I want when it comes to the truth. That is why I made the decision not to do it,” Cain said.

Former CNN host and DailyMail.com editor-at-large Piers Morgan called Democratic presidential candidate frontrunner Bernie Sanders’ comments Monday that he wanted felons to vote, including the Boston Marathon bomber, “utter lunacy” Tuesday.

“I couldn’t really believe what I was hearing. This is a guy, frontrunner as you said, to be the potential nominee for the Democratic Party to beat Donald Trump, that’s their plan and what they want to do. And their main selling point right now on a CNN Town Hall is they want the Boston Marathon bomber to be able to vote while he is in prison? While he is on death row?” Morgan said on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

MEGHAN MCCAIN AND WHOOPI GOLDBERG CLASH OVER VOTING RIGHTS FOR BOSTON BOMBER: ‘HE IS A TERRORIST’

Sanders, an independent U.S. senator from Vermont, defended his stance on voting rights during a CNN Town Hall event Monday night. He argued that the U.S. Constitution says “everybody can vote” and that “some people in jail can vote.”

Morgan found it ironic that Sanders, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, wants criminals to vote for president but calls President Trump a criminal.

“And there is an irony, Tucker, the same Democrats screaming every single second of every day about Trump and collusion — ‘He is a criminal, we can’t have a criminal running the country’ — and yet at the same time, they are campaigning for every criminal in the country to have the right to vote for president,” Morgan said.

The former CNN host criticized the idea of felons voting, saying it would not resonate with middle America and would get Trump reelected.

“This is madness! This is a way to get Trump reelected. Maybe they are all sleeper cells,” Morgan joked.

Conservative talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh said Monday that former Vice President Joseph Biden is the Democrats’ best chance to defeat President Trump in 2020 but has no chance to win the primary.

“Here’s the thing: Joe Biden is probably the best chance they’ve got, and he doesn’t have a chance. They’re probably — Joe Biden? And crazy Bernie [Sanders]? And mayor Pete [Buttigieg]? Three white guys, two of them are brontosauruses from ‘Jurassic Park,’ and that isn’t going to sit well with the rest of this party, which has gone so far left,” Limbaugh said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

Limbaugh also said Biden may not be fully committed to running in 2020.

LIMBAUGH WARNS REPUBLICANS TO BACK TRUMP AFTER MUELLER REPORT RELEASE

“I don’t think, Biden is putting off his announcement, I don’t know how badly he really wants this, and you have to really want this if you are going to have any chance of winning it,” Limbaugh said.

Fox News learned Tuesday that Biden’s long-awaited 2020 presidential bid announcement has been pushed back from Wednesday to Thursday, with plans for the former vice president to follow up with an appearance in Pittsburgh next week.

The radio host also went after 2020 candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., criticizing her proposals including forgiving student loans.

“Pocahontas is not going to be the nominee. These Democrats are all in the process of trying to out-leftist or out-liberal each other, and they’re in a contest of who can give away the most,” Limbaugh said.

He continued, “None of this is real, none of this can happen. This is disinformation, and it is really, I think it is an indication of just how little they think of their own voters, that their own voters don’t even want to work. They don’t even want to achieve. They don’t even want to pursue excellence. They just want to have their hands out and vote for whoever is going to give them the most. What a way to ruin a life.”

Limbaugh took time to address Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, defending Trump and accusing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of colluding with the Russians.

“Hillary Clinton and her pals in the Obama Department of Justice and the FBI, they are the ones who colluded with the Russians. They are the ones that gave us this entirely, totally bogus Steele dossier,” Limbaugh said.

“Talk about irony, for Hillary Clinton to be talking about impeaching Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton needs to be investigated, she needs to be indicted, and she needs to be in jail — and many of her co-conspirators in this whole sordid affair, which amounted to nothing more than a silent coup to overturn the election results in 2016.”

Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh didn’t mince words while addressing multiple issues Tuesday on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” but his strongest hits were aimed at Republicans who had yet to fully jump on the President Trump bandwagon.

“Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, we are not in politics. We are media titans, but we are not in politics. It is the party of Donald Trump right now, and the Republicans that don’t realize that had better get on board,” Limbaugh said, reacting to a New York Times op-ed by Joe Lockhart, a press secretary to then-President Bill Clinton.

ERIC SWALWELL: NO APOLOGY NECESSARY FOR SURVEILLING TRUMP CAMPAIGN

“Republicans today are the party of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson — a coalition that, in the face of every demographic trend in America, will mean the long-term realignment of the federal government behind the Democrats,” Lockhart wrote Monday.

Limbaugh said Lockhart’s words were an example of frustration within the Democrats.

“They haven’t been able to ‘defeat me’ in 30 years. They can’t defeat Trump. They haven’t been able to stop him, and I think they are frustrated. They have thrown every weapon they have in their arsenal at Donald Trump, and nothing’s worked. Things they’ve used over the years that have been readily available to get rid and take out any Republican they want, they have bounced off of Trump,” Limbaugh told Martha MacCallum.

Limbaugh criticized the Republican party for not fully standing behind Trump and celebrating his “victory” when the Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report was released. He also noted that Trump wasn’t just taking on the Democratis but was battling the Washington establishment — including Republicans.

“Where’s the Republican party with the celebratory emails to their voters? Even fund-raising, or just celebrating the victory, where are they? You don’t hear them. The reason is, Martha, because this is a battle not between two parties, this is a battle between the Washington establishment and the deep state, I call them the administrative state, and outsiders and Americans who feel disenfranchised or unattached,” Limbaugh said.

Limbaugh also went after Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, for saying he was “sickened” by the president’s actions as documented in the Mueller report.

“There is no reason not to get behind him unless you don’t like his voters, and that is where I think the key to understanding this is,” Limbaugh said.

Fox News contributor Katherine Timpf criticized the Democratic Party’s consideration of impeachment Monday on “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” saying that such an action would only embolden President Trump.

“I think  it would make President Trump more popular. It would make them look petty and I think it would make President Trump look like a victim and a sympathetic figure. And I think that they know that. They must know that,” Timpf told Cavuto.

“I don’t think they’re complete morons. I think that they are able to  realize simple facts and history. So I really think they’re just trying to drum up support among their base. Which I think is effective in that way. Other Democrats, people further left, do like to hear that.”

Democratic presidential candidates Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., called for impeachment Monday while appearing on CNN.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., opposes impeachment but is facing opposition from some members within the party.

Timpf noted that Democrats were better off letting the American people know how they could make their lives better.

“So I think what Democrats should be doing is they should be focusing on — they say we can make it better. These are our ideas rather than say let’s impeach the president,” Timpf said.

The “Greg Gutfeld Show” regular also asked why the Democrats were working so hard to remove Trump and give Vice President Mike Pence the nation’s highest office.

“I can’t believe we’re seeing some Democrats fighting so hard for Pence. I had no idea they like Pence so much. That doesn’t mean that you get Hillary Clinton if they actually did impeach Trump,” Timpf said.

The founder of a London-based think tank that focuses on counter-extremism criticized media outlets and prominent political figures for not being forthright about this past Sunday’s suicide bombings in Sri Lanka aimed at Christians.

Six suicide bombings were orchestrated by Jihadi extremists against Sri Lanka’s Christian community killing over 300 people.

The media and prominent political figures went out of their way to downplay the religious aspects of the attacks prompting criticism, host Tucker Carlson said.

SRI LANKA AUTHORITIES WARNED OF EASTER CHURCH BOMBINGS WEEKS BEFORE SUNDAY’S MASSACRE, OFFICIALS SAY

“They have been unable to name Islamist extremism by name and jihadist terrorism being a violent manifestation because they genuinely believe that a bigger threat due to their political perspective is white supremacist and far-right extremism and then, of course, there’s the pragmatic political side of things. They are pandering to a certain vote base and they fear by naming these things even if they wanted to, it would cause them trouble with their base and that’s not how I operate and that’s not how I think any decent human being should operate,” Maajid Nawaz, founder of Quilliam said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“What happened in New Zealand was a white supremacist terrorist attack and what’s happened in Sri Lanka is a jihadist terrorist attack and it moves us all to speak plainly about this so we can address these problems.”

Former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tweeted their condolences Sunday to Sri Lanka but made it a point to avoid calling the victims Christians, instead calling them “Easter worshippers.”

The Washington Post published an analytical piece Monday entitled “Christianity under attack? Sri Lanka church bombings stoke far-right anger in the West.”

Nawaz lamented the political angles being played during tragedy.

“I think sadly too many people play politics with tragedy and they allow for their own framework of their own bias to influence how they view human tragedy and then they use that to peddle their own political narrative,” Nawaz said.

DailyMail.com editor-at-large and former CNN anchor Piers Morgan appeared on “Hannity” Monday night where he lambasted Democrats and the mainstream media for their reaction to the Mueller Report’s release last week, calling it “a disgrace.”

“Mueller was the savior, the man on the white horse riding into town to take down President Trump on collusion with Russia, he would be exposed as a traitor and this would be the end of his presidency. And then Mueller report comes out and it turns out it was all nonsense. It was to quote Donald Trump, it was ‘fake news,'” Morgan told host Sean Hannity.

TOP DEM DISMISSES POSSIBILITY OF COLLUSION FATIGUE: ‘THE RUSSIANS AREN’T GETTING TIRED’

Last week, Attorney General William Barr released a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report that revealed the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia.

Morgan criticized The New York Times, The Washington Post and cable news outlets for pushing the “obstruction of justice” narrative after the Mueller report did not result in charges against the president.

“We are supposed to believe now that Donald Trump committed repeated obstruction of justice over a crime that he now, as we all know, did not commit? He is trying to obstruct people from investigating something he says he said he didn’t do and Special Counsel has confirmed he didn’t do. It is ridiculous, it is a farce, it is making a mockery of America,” Morgan said.

The British television presenter also mocked liberals unable to cope with the fact that Trump beat Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2016.

“The liberals here are refusing to accept results in 2016. ‘But Hillary won the popular vote.’ Who cares? It’s not about the popular vote,” Morgan said.

Morgan also went after his old employer CNN, saying he still had friends there but wondering aloud if they are continuing their coverage for monetary reasons.

TRUMP RAILS AGAINST ‘BULLS—‘ IN MUELLER REPORT

“I don’t know why they have done that other than it gives them a lot of money, I guess.  I think it damages their credibility and I wish they weren’t doing it,” Morgan said.

Morgan warned the media and Democrats that if they continue to cover President Trump in the same vein that they are essentially guaranteeing him a second term.

“If the Democrats, fueled by the media, try to continue to fight this, and I’m telling you what will happen, Donald Trump will get reelected and he will have four more years of this,” Morgan said.

The former head of the Small Business Association, Linda McMahon, said Monday that for the economy to continue to grow President Trump must be reelected.

“We need to re-elect President Donald Trump because he put all of these policies in place. I mean, do we really want to stop this economy and the growth that is going?” McMahon said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

SOME SANDERS BACKERS UPSET WITH BUTTIGIEG

McMahon, who last month left the administration, is the chair of the pro-Trump America First Action PAC.

“I’m just a very practical, common sense person, when I’m out looking across the country and I see the positive impact that the president’s policies have had, I’m going ‘why do we want the stop this?” McMahon added saying she was 100 percent behind the president.

McMahon didn’t seem too worried about a matchup with Democratic presidential candidate frontrunner Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and was asked by guest host Ed Henry about a possible general election featuring pro-capitalist Trump versus Democratic socialist Sanders.

“I would love to see that,” McMahon said.

“Because I really do believe Americans, and polls show, that most Americans do believe in capitalism and not socialism. It’s where our country has been founded on, what made our country so successful.”

SANDERS NABS TOP SPOT IN NEW DEMS POLL AS PETE BUTTIGIEG GAINS MOMENTUM

McMahon also touted Trump’s vision for America and the economy.

“I think the president certainly touts that experience as an entrepreneur who built a business and has watched the economy grow here as being president. He’s known what to do. He’s been a bit disruptive doing it and I think that’s why he was elected, ” McMahon told Henry.
