Russian Collusion: Democrats DESPERATE To Stay Relevant
Liberals spent nearly a year spinning conspiracies about Russians and Republicans all because they needed an excuse for losing.
However, as the lies unravel one by one, some leftists are starting to fear the retaliation from voters.
As Politico points out:
Democrats are increasingly conflicted about how forcefully to press the issue of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Fearful of alienating voters who appear more concerned about the economy and health care, Democrats campaigning in districts across the country are de-emphasizing Russia in their rhetoric — and some are warning that a persistent focus on the Russia investigation could backfire.
Bill Burton, a Democratic consultant, says people (aka Democrats) think the Russia stuff is “important,” BUT:
But they’re mostly sick of hearing about it, and they want to hear politicians talk about things that are more directly important in their lives.”
The Democrats can’t say they weren’t warned. TBS wrote this when the Fusion GPS story sufaced.
From the moment the Democrats set the “Trump colluded with the Russians” narrative, I warned you. As I have said, Democrats tell you what they do, when they accuse you.
From the very beginning all the top Democrats knew they were colluding with the Russians. The Democrats tried to set a trap for candidate Trump, but it failed for one reason. They underestimated Trump.
One could argue that the Democrats overestimated themselves. They certainly believed the media juggernaut would get them over any potential hump, should their ruse be uncovered. They obviously didn’t count on the media being marginalized. Nor did they count on the unwavering support for Trump.
During hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, the head of Hermitage Capital Management, William Browder testified that the pro-Democrat consulting firm Fusion GPS has deep ties to the Kremlin.
Remember the Democrats didn’t want to turn over their computers, after accusing the Russians of hacking them.
Further, none of these scoundrels wants to testify? As we asked of House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Adam Schiff, why aren’t the Democrats talking:
It’s because Adam Schiff has been caught in a lie. A scam in fact.
Democrats claim they want to know what happened in Russia. At least where Trump is involved, which is nowhere. Yet, Schiff wouldn’t allow certain witnesses to testify before his committee.
When asked for a reason, he refused to answer the question.
About a dozen witnesses scheduled to testify were cancelled by Democrats. They were told the committee needed more time to prepare. More likely, they needed more time to evade the truth.
According to the Washington Free Beacon:
Congressional officials said one of the key witnesses, former informal adviser to the Trump campaign Carter Page, was scheduled to testify at a closed hearing of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
But Democrats on the committee blocked the testimony, asserting they needed more time to prepare.
“He’s the guy that many Democrats have been pointing to as the supposed mastermind and you would think they were interested hearing his story,” said one Capitol Hill official.
Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.), the committee’s Democratic leader, did not respond to emails seeking comment on the blocked testimony.
12 witnesses prevented from testifying, after the Democrats have had over a year to
create gather evidence?
Even California is Nervous.
Could California be in play for the Republicans? We certainly know that the state is critical for the Democrats. No California, no control of the House.
Darry Sragow, a Democratic strategist whose California Target Book handicaps races in California, called Russia a “distraction” and said Democrats “are going to be in deep, deep trouble if they don’t start talking about what voters care about.”
“We need to talk about what people think about when they wake up in the morning, and it’s not Russia,” Sragow said. “The more we talk about stuff that voters don’t truly care about in their daily lives … it confirms that the Democratic Party’s brain has been eaten by the elites in Washington who have been sitting fat and happy for a lot of years while working Americans have lost their jobs and lost confidence in the future.”
BOOM! It doesn’t get much clearer than that.
The Russian story is a big fat bust. But leftists should go ahead and keep talking about it, because it just pushes more people to the right. In fact, a Harvard-Harris Poll reports that two-thirds of voters believe all this Russian crap is hurting the country and they’re sick of it.
For the sake of the country, I hope they continue this. Usually, Democrats live and die by polls, and there hasn’t been a single poll where the Russians played well. Apparently, the Democrats keep hoping things will change. However, the only thing changing is DC, as President Trump continues to drain the swamp.
