Russia!, Russia!, Russia!
That’s all we’ve heard from Democrats for the past two years. Now that Special Counsel Mueller’s report has obliterated the collusion narrative, frantic Democrats have continued in their quest to derail the Trump presidency under the new banner of “obstruction.”
After Barr’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, proclaimed that Barr had committed a crime. Exactly what crime he committed was not specified. This was a perfect example of grasping at the thinnest of reeds in the hopes of resurrecting the narrative, now under the guise of “obstruction.” Former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy has thoroughly eviscerated that specious argument.
Even for Democrat-owned CNN, this gross misrepresentation was a bridge too far. Pelosi’s charge was purely based on hair splitting in terms of his characterization of Special Counsel Mueller’s concerns about Barr’s summary of his findings. This is pure poppycock, as Barr has made the entire report available to the public with only minor redactions. Any criticism of Barr’s mischaracterizing any part of Mueller’s legal conclusions is now moot.
Pelosi was followed up by the protest shenanigans by rubber chicken man, Democratic Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen , who dined on KFC fried chicken on the House floor, while clutching a rubber chicken — all to the delight of the waiting media mob who enshrined his childish antics for the six o’clock news. Cohen was reaction to Barr’s declining the House Judiciary Committee invitation to be the object of Chairman Jerry Nadler’s clown show.
Rubber chicken man embodies perfectly the nature of today’s Democratic Party: thuggish, uninspiring, intellectually and morally bankrupt; bereft of a singly meaningful idea with which to present to voters. Now that the collusion house of cards has collapsed, the party has nothing left in its quiver, save for bloviating against Barr for hiding Trump’s “obstruction.”
Democrats collusion narrative, now has come crashing down upon their heads. Their quest to derail the Trump presidency a failure, the Democrats have seen fit to continue their tiresome rants against Trump, now focused on the mythical crime of “obstruction.” Collusion, and now obstruction; the only two operative words in the dictionary of the Democratic Party. The party has no other ideas to present to voters; it has no other serious policy proposals to offer. It is an institution in the throes of moral bankruptcy.
The obstruction charge is utter nonsense as was noted by Barr when he so eloquently stated,
“How did we get to the point where the evidence is now that the president was falsely accused of colluding with the Russians, accused of being treasonous and accused of being a Russian agent, and the evidence now is that that was without a basis?” he asked. “And two years of his administration have been dominated by allegations that have now been proven false. But to listen to some of the rhetoric, you would think the Mueller report had found the opposite.”
The real reason for the Democrats unprecedented, nasty and uncivil assault on Barr is that he has indicated that he intends to investigate the sourcing for the entire Russian Collusion narrative and hold those within the Department of Justice and the Intelligence Agencies who abused their authoritah.
As Michael Goodwin notes,
“Dems got the special counsel investigation they demanded and were able to play offense against Trump since 2016. Now the focus shifts to the other side of the story — the plot to steal the election and then undermine a duly elected president.
Finally, we are getting to the history that matters most.”
I wonder what rubber chicken man will have to say when Attorney General Barr’s investigation reveals that senior members of his party were involved in a deliberate scheme to derail the campaign and later, the presidency, of a political opponent. At that time, let’s force this buffoon to eat a Democratic Party favorite, Chick-fil-A.
