Leftmedia Spins 'Trump Threatening Democracy' Narrative

Democrats cry foul because Trump refuses to go along with their political witch hunt.

“President [Donald] Trump and his allies are working to block more than 20 separate investigations by Democrats into his actions as president,” shrieks The Washington Post. The article further asserts that this “amount[s] to what many experts call the most expansive White House obstruction effort in decades.”

The Post then makes this absurd claim: “Trump’s noncooperation strategy has shifted from partial resistance to all-out war as he faces mounting inquiries from the Democratic-controlled House — a strategy that many legal and congressional experts fear could undermine the institutional power of Congress for years to come.” Newsflash: If anyone’s guilty of undermining institutional power, it’s not President Trump.

For example, which political party refuses to accept Trump as the nation’s duly elected president? Which party refuses to accept the results of Robert Mueller’s nearly two-year investigation by a team of hand-picked partisan Democrat prosecutors — a team that found not a whiff of Russian collusion in the Trump campaign? The truth is, it’s the Democrats and their endless temper tantrum that are threatening our nation’s system of government.

After putting up with their “Trump stole the election” narrative for more than two years, the president has finally decided he’s had enough, and he’s refusing to cater to any more of the Democrats’ baseless demands. This isn’t Trump trying to obstruct legitimate congressional oversight; this is Trump fighting off the Democrats’ efforts to undermine his presidency.

As Deputy White House Press Secretary Steven Groves explained, “There are rules and norms governing congressional oversight of the executive branch, and the Democrats simply refuse to abide by them. Democrats are demanding documents they know they have no legal right to see — including confidential communications between the president and foreign leaders and grand jury information that cannot be disclosed under the law. This White House will not and cannot comply with unlawful demands made by increasingly unhinged and politically motivated Democrats.”

The reality is that the Democrats started this war, not Trump. The president is merely defending himself against a mob — a mob that always cries foul when Republicans punch back against their hyper-partisan attacks.
