Dems & Leftmedia Desperate to Save Anti-Trump Narrative

Dems reject Mueller's findings on Trump while doubling down on more investigations.

One of the biggest problems with a lie is its nature to breed more lies. This reality has been on full display following the release of Robert Mueller’s report. With Attorney General William Barr’s original four-page executive summary of the report, which accurately summarized Mueller’s conclusion that there was no evidence of any Trump/Russia collusion while leaving undecided the question of whether Trump obstructed the investigation, Democrats quickly cried foul and demanded to see the full report, claiming that Barr was hiding something.

The first big lie, propagated by the fallacious and salacious Christopher Steele anti-Trump dossier (paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign), was that President Donald Trump colluded with the Russian to win the election. Remember it was the Leftmedia that first published the Steele dossier without ever verifying its credibility, helping to foment the collusion narrative. Conveniently, only now is The New York Times willing to throw out the dossier as complete junk. It served its purpose, effectively allowing the Leftmedia and Democrats to throw enough shade on Trump to justify the demands for a special investigation.

Then for two years, Democrats and their Leftmedia cohorts preached incessantly that Mueller was about to unearth evidence of Trump’s nefarious Russian connections. However, as it became increasingly apparent that there was no evidence to support the collusion narrative, Democrats pivoted and moved the goalposts, claiming that Trump was guilty of obstruction of justice due to his loud and repeated objections to Mueller’s “witch hunt.” Big lie number two.

Last Thursday, as he promised, Barr released Mueller’s full report, with the appropriate redactions. And it quickly became apparent that Democrat claims that Barr was hiding damning information were completely unfounded and untrue. Barr’s executive summary was entirely accurate, and yet, due to the redactions, the Democrats continued to lob their vacuous assertions of Barr stumping for Trump. Furthermore, the fact that Mueller was inconclusive on the question of whether Trump engaged in any obstruction of justice was “evidence” enough for Democrats to double down on their “obstruction” narrative. House Democrats are calling for more investigations into the “damning evidence.” Big lie number three.

Once again, the Democrat and Leftmedia aim could not be more clear: Do everything possible to paint a false narrative as credible in their effort to convince the American people that Trump should not be in office. This is a classic demonstration in dirty politics. By begging the question of Trump’s guilt, Democrats and the Leftmedia feel free to foment any false and misleading narrative against him. The reality is Democrats are only serving to expose the depth of their desperation to discredit a duly elected president.
