Dems Ramp Up ‘Ridiculous Partisan Investigations’

Trump called them out Tuesday night. By Wednesday morning, it was full speed ahead.

“An economic miracle is taking place in the United States — and the only things that can stop it are foolish wars, politics, or ridiculous partisan investigations,” Donald Trump declared in his State of the Union Address Tuesday night. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defiantly responded, “It was a threat. It was an all-out threat. The president should not bring threats to the floor of the House. He said he wasn’t going to cooperate unless we didn’t exercise our constitutional responsibility to oversight.” Cry us a river.

The Democrats’ strategy since Trump’s surprising election win has been to hamstring him with investigations. That’s what the Mueller/Comey/Clinton collusion is all about. And as we’ve asserted before, a recession that boosts Demo chances in 2020 would be a cherry on top for them.

Democrats wasted no time after the SOTU. On Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff launched a new probe into the president’s foreign business relationships and if those are affecting U.S. foreign policy. “He has no basis to do that,” Trump retorted. “He’s just a political hack who’s trying to build a name for himself. It’s just presidential harassment and it’s unfortunate and it really does hurt our country.” The Hill also reports, “The House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday voted to give special counsel Robert Mueller transcripts from dozens of witness interviews from the panel’s Russia probe.”

Meanwhile, on the House Ways and Means subcommittee docket today: examining the disclosure of presidential tax returns — a move clearly meant as a shot across the bow for Trump’s decision to withhold his own returns.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer taunted the president, saying, “He’s scared. He’s got something to hide. Because if he had nothing to hide he’d just shrug his shoulders and let these investigations go forward.”

Memo to Schumer: Pointing out that investigations are a political witch hunt — which these are — is a lot different than obstructing those investigations. Trump has done nothing to stop the process; he’s merely exposed the partisan hackery of it all.
