Seems "elections have consequences" means more investigations.

Great to know the senior Senator from Oklahoma is among those pushing for this:
Quote:
Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, one of the co-signers, even said foreign officials and political leaders have come to him with "reports of U.S. activity in their respective countries."

He said in a statement: "This includes reports of diplomats playing political favorites, USAID funds supporting extreme and sometimes violent political activists, and the US Government working to marginalize the moderates and conservatives in leadership roles. ... This sort of political favoritism from our missions around the world is unacceptable.”

The letter to Tillerson also was signed by Sens. James Inhofe, R-Okla.; Thom Tillis, R-N.C.; David Perdue, R-Ga.; Ted Cruz, R-Texas; and Bill Cassidy, R-La. It followed a letter in February from GOP lawmakers asking about whether U.S. tax dollars have been used in recent years to fund Soros-backed projects in the small, conservative-led country of Macedonia.

They're grasping at straws now, desperately seeking something, anything that would offset the daily clown show that is the Trump presidency. I'm all for making sure that US funds be spent properly, but methinks they should be more concerned about investigating Russian influence on Trump and Trump conflicts of interest, both topics which could cause more problems politically than Soros could cause in Macedonia. YMMV.

The GOP has become such a one-trick pony. It is shameful how ineffectual they have become.
