“Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime” a quote attributed to Lavrently Beria, former Russian dictator Josef Stalin’s longest serving and arguably most ruthless chief of secret police. Beria targeted “the man” first and searched until he “found” the crime. Democrats in the House of Representatives have resorted to those same tactics.
Democrat politics in 2019 has taken on the mantra of fighting everything Trump related and threatening anyone with the audacity to oppose them. Case in point: the Russia collusion hoax. The Democrats, the FBI and Department of Justice colluded to prevent Donald Trump from being elected president. Two years and $30 million later and no indictment by the Mueller probe thus far have implicated President Trump or his campaign of Russian collusion or any wrongdoing, so the House Democrats have decided to go fishing…or phishing.
Democrats fear special counsel Robert Mueller will stand on national television and declare that Donald J. Trump has not committed an impeachable offense. Democrats are searching for anything they can use to help in the 2020 election cycle. The House Democrats’ attempt to obtain documents from 81 people is being used the exact same way, as a means of getting votes in 2020. Every one of us should stand against that sort of banana republic tactic no matter which party tries it.
The 2016 election exposed Washington, D.C., corruption and the arrogance of our elected officials who believe they know better than we do. Their hubris makes Narcissus look humble. Remember lie after lie about “keep your doctor” and “Benghazi was the result of a video”? Remember the smug looks and lack of apologies? Senator Dick Durbin’s recent “meet and greet” in Hillsboro on March 2 was not open to the public.
Walls work. That’s arrogance.
