A Republican member of the House Judiciary Committee warned that the truth behind the Russia collusion “hoax” is about to become the “other shoe that’s about to drop” for Democrats.

Rep. Tom McClintock told Fox News Channel’s Neil Cavuto that the possibility of Robert Mueller testifying in front of Congress could backfire on Democrats by unearthing the details about what sparked the special counsel investigation into alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 election.

The California Republican admitted he had “a lot of questions” during an appearance on “Your World” Monday, telling Cavuto that he hopes Mueller does agree to appear before Congress to testify about the investigation and his subsequent report.

“I’d like to know why he showed so little interest in how the greatest lie in the history of American presidential politics entered the public discussion,” McClintock said, adding that he would also ask Mueller why he “stacked his investigators with Democratic partisans.”

Democrats on the House and Senate Judiciary Committees want to hear from Mueller and are hoping to get him before Congress while President Trump declared “No redos for the Dems!”

“Do you think that what a lot of people are waiting to hear, what got this investigation going? And then maybe Democrats, your colleagues, are very concerned about what they will reveal, hence this sort of brushfire, preoccupation with everything Barr said, with what everything Mueller pointed out in the report, to deflect? What do you think of that?” Cavuto questioned McClintock.

“Well, that’s the other shoe that’s about to drop,” the House Judiciary Committee member replied.

“We now know that this was a lie. That’s all laid out very clearly. Despite 22 months of investigations, millions of dollars spent, they were not able to find any evidence of collusion,” he continued. “So we now know that was just a great hoax.”

“Well, maybe not collusion, but a number of people are going to jail, or worse, right? I mean, not on the collusion issue, you’re right,” Cavuto interjected, also asking if there is “a risk for both parties that they overdo it?”

“Well, I think it’s important that we find out how this hoax developed and how it was used by senior officials in the FBI, in the intelligence agencies, in the Department of Justice and perhaps at the White House itself to influence our elections process, and, having failed to do that, having it — using it to undermine the president of the United States,” the congressman replied.
