On Monday, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee announced that no evidence of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and Russia has been found, CBS News and others said. This prompted former Attorney General Eric Holder to claim that a coverup is taking place.
“We have found no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians,” a one-page summary of the committee’s findings read.
President Trump tweeted:
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.

According to the New York Times:
Even as the special counsel expands his inquiry and pursues criminal charges against at least four Trump associates, House Intelligence Committee Republicans said Monday they have found no evidence of collusion between Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia to sway the 2016 election. Representative K. Michael Conaway of Texas, who is leading the investigation, said committee Republicans agreed with the conclusions of American intelligence agencies that Russia had interfered with the election, but they broke with the agencies on one crucial point: that the Russians had favored Mr. Trump’s candidacy. “The bottom line: The Russians did commit active measures against our election in ’16, and we think they will do that in the future,” Mr. Conaway said. But, he added, “We disagree with the narrative that they were trying to help Trump.”
Holder, however, melted down on Twitter, spawning yet another conspiracy theory: “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.”

Holder, of course, offered absolutely no proof to support his tinfoil-hat conspiracy theory.
Reaction on Twitter was pretty much what one might expect:
Looks like Eric put this tweet out Fast & Furiously.

Well, I guess you would qualify as an expert on politics beating truth. Fast and furious, Black Panthers at polling areas, and on and on. You really shouldn’t be offering advice.

Some reminded Holder that he was once held in contempt of Congress:
Says only acting AG ever held in contempt of Congress

Since Trump won the White House, Democrats like Holder have done everything they can to enact a coup d’etat to undo the 2016 election, using claims that Russia colluded with the Trump campaign.
Holder, by the way, wasn’t the only Democrat to lose it over the report.
“By ending its oversight role in the only authorized investigation in the House, the Majority has placed the interests of protecting the President over protecting the country, and history will judge its actions harshly,” said Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.
“On a whole host of investigative threads, our work is fundamentally incomplete, some issues partially investigated,” he said, “others, like that involving credible allegations of Russian money laundering, remain barely touched. If the Russians do have leverage over the President of the United States, the Majority has simply decided it would rather not know.”
So the witch-hunt continues, even though there is no evidence to support the claim.
