Keep Digging Dems! Youll Find that Pony in that Manure Pile somewhere
By Rick Moran
Democrats are refusing to give up. Maybe if we haul Robert Mueller before a Congressional Committee hell change his mind and accuse Trump of all sorts of things. Democrats can always dream I suppose.
How do I know? Ask any Democrat.
Somewhere buried deep in the Mueller report is incontrovertible evidence that the president of the United States is a Russian spy.
I know it. I just know it. It has to be there.
And I just know that Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice. How can he not be? Hes guilty of so much that the obstruction is Im sure just the tip of the iceberg.
I cant decide whether its amusing or pathetic this desperate desire by Democrats to will the Mueller report to say something it isnt saying. An appropriate cultural reference might be that Democrats are searching for Captain Queegs missing strawberries even after they know the fruit has been eaten and the culprit found.
All of those flipped witnesses who Democrats believed would turn on their boss and dish the real dirt apparently had little to say. Kind of makes you wonder what Mueller got from these cooperating witnesses.
From the New York Post:
It is clear Congress and the American people must hear from Special Counsel Robert Mueller in person to better understand his findings. We are now requesting Mueller to appear before @HouseJudiciary as soon as possible" Jerrold Nadler posted on Twitter linking to the letter he sent.
I request your testimony before the Judiciary Committee as soon as possible but in any event no later than May 23 2019" the New York Democrat wrote.
During the news conference Barr said he would have no problem with Mueller testifying before Congress.
Just what is it they expect Mueller to say that he didnt say in his report?
When AG Barr appeared before the press and gave a shortened version of the Mueller report there was widespread speculation that hidden inside the massive document were little tidbits that if taken out of context and sufficiently massaged by the media would prove Trump guilty guilty guilty.
They may yet find such evidence.
While there is certainly exculpatory evidence in the report there will also be hints that Trumps actions were borderline and that perhaps Democrats could craft a case out of snippets of unrelated material.
But this still isnt likely.
If Mueller wanted to indict Trump I doubt anything would have stood in his way. Instead while exoneration might be too loaded a term he didnt really come close to indicting or recommending the indictment of a sitting president.
So Democrats are left with denying reality and engaging in wishful thinking.
How comfortable for them. No need to think critically just react emotionally.
The manure pile is getting smaller but it looks like the pony escaped while Democrats werent looking.
