President Trump recently called Washington more of a sewer than a swamp. With the stench of blatant bias and partisanship surrounding the Russia probe worsening by the day, he’s right.
You’d think after more than six months of this Russia nonsense, they’d give it a rest. But that’s what the Democratic Party does in place of policy.
The Democrats’ chorus of praise for special counsel Robert Mueller is at a fever pitch. Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, blessed Mueller with an unprecedentedly broad mandate, tweeting that it’s “his duty” to investigate “anything that arises.” Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said firing Mueller would be a “cataclysm.”
Liberal whining about the Trump administration is expected, but the hypocrisy about the “independent” Russian probe is ridiculous. In just months, the person once blamed for Hillary Clinton’s defeat, James Comey, has transformed into a valiant public servant who spawned this important inquiry.
Peel back just a few layers on Mueller’s probe and it’s purely partisan. Only in Washington does this investigation pass as “independent.”
Several members of Mueller’s team show obvious bias. Jeannie Rhee donated to a Clinton Super PAC; she represented the Clinton Foundation in a 2015 racketeering case and Clinton herself in a lawsuit seeking access to her emails. Andrew Weissmann donated six times to Obama-affiliated groups. James Quarles gave to more than a dozen Democratic PACs since the 1980s.
Jared Kushner and Donald Trump Jr. have shown integrity and transparency. Both have voluntary released more information to the public than was asked. Democrats, Hollywood liberals and leftist mainstream news media want to find collusion to validate their election bitterness. Meanwhile, President Trump and his administration are working to make America great again.
It’s a shame Americans must turn on cable news to hear the same tired Russia story ad nauseam for hours, days and months on end. That’s not news, that’s a witch hunt.
