In what's becoming more apparent every day, the Democratic Party is digging themselves a hole on their 2018 Election outcomes and the chances of enhancing their representative numbers---from slim to none.
Since the day Donald J. Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Election, the party with no message has piled their political chips into a single ill-fated hand, and, after numerous months of investigations and testimony, they're beginning to look downright silly.
Case in point, was Senate Democrats yesterday interrogating the current Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, who purposely agreed to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee---in an open public hearing---to clear up his impeccable name and reputation as a straight-shooting honest public servant. In his opening statement, Sessions left no doubt he was appalled at the, [Comey-induced], suggestion that he participated/colluded with Russian officials to help Trump get elected.
"I was your colleague in this body for 20 years, and the suggestion that I participated in any collusion or that I was aware of any collusion with the Russian government to hurt this country, which I have served with honor for over 35 years, or to undermine the integrity of our democratic process, is an appalling and detestable lie."
(For the record, the left-wing anti-Trump website Politico chose to edit out Sessions' preface of his tenure with his "fellow Senators")
But this didn't stop Senate Democrats, (who were prepared to question Sessions' integrity as Trump's AG), as each Democrat took their turn impugning his testimony. The only thing Democrats were interested in, was how and why Sessions made the decision to participate in Comey's firing, and, why the AG was "stonewalling" by not revealing privileged conversations with the President.
In the process, Senate Democrats made total asses of themselves. Starting with Vice Chairman Angus King,(Maine), and followed by Ron Wyden,(Ore.), Martin Heinrich (N.M.), Kamala Harris (Calif.), these politicians DID NOT GIVE A DAMN about Russian interference in the election. They were more concerned about Comey's private one on one meetings with Trump, (before the FBI Director was fired), and the conversations Sessions would not reveal to the panel.
And to be perfectly clear, neither Democrats nor the Liberal Lamestream Media appear to understand the concept of privileged conversations with a President. Or, even though they do understand it, they're preference is to belligerently ignore it.
To put an "exclamation" on the this hilarious investigation---a bogus accusation in search of a crime---Senator Tom Cotton put the Democrats in their much deserved place with his time questioning Mr. Sessions:
“Do you like Jason Bourne or James Bond movies?” Cotton asked Sessions during the Senate hearing Tuesday. “Have you ever in any of these fantastical situations heard of a plot line so ridiculous that a sitting United States senator and ambassador of a foreign government colluded at an open setting with hundreds of other people to pull off the greatest caper in the history of espionage?”
Tom Cotton's opening question/statement, (that revealed the Senate Democrat's intentions), succinctly points out the dilemma the Democrats have placed themselves in, in their line of questioning; the omission of questions pertaining to this investigation---namely, did Donald Trump, Jeff Sessions, or any of his campaign surrogates collude with Russian officials to effect the outcome of a Presidential Election?
After seven months of intelligence investigations, (including the Obama-directed FBI investigation), Senate and House committee hearings, one thing is becoming crystal clear---there has been NO EVIDENCE produced by these bodies of any collusion, obstruction, or a cover-up on the part of the Trump Administration, NONE, ZERO, ZILCH, NADA---END OF STORY. Or, at least it should be.
The Democrats have ridden this dog-hunt and their horses into the ground. As this next election cycle rolls around, it will be the Democrats who will have to defend their actions and false accusations to the voting public, and their outright obstruction in participating in their elected duties to produce legislation for their electorate. When Democrats return to their districts during the summer recess, telling their constituents, "we found no evidence of collusion, but we did attack the President and his Attorney General while making complete asses of ourselves---aren't you proud of us?" Oh, "and can you vote for us, since we've done nothing to enhance your life?"
These delusional Democrats and their complicit Liberal Media are still thinking they can remove a sitting, duly elected President, while wasting all of their political capital on a scurrilous, contemptible, and un-provable witch-hunt, never witnessed in the annals of American Politics.
At this pace, the Democrats will be like lambs to a slaughter-house next year, shellacked, schlonged, skewered, and ready for the dinner table. Please chew slowly.
