Do Democrats think the House and Senate Intelligence Committees can turn Trump’s election into an O.J. Simpson trial rerun?
Juan Williams, an inept and easily flummoxed pundit for Fox News penned a piece today for The Hill entitled “Trump’s Risk of Impeachment Rises”. In the screed Williams exclaimed, “Liberal Democrats could yet see their dreams come true.”
“It is no fantasy to say the drip-drip-drip of the Trump-Russia investigations is draining this presidency of political capital. The president’s historically high disapproval rating— 51 percent in the latest McClatchy poll—tells the same story.”
Williams purports to know unequivocally “astute Republicans are starting to look out for themselves. The first Republican to begin to run for cover was Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who decided to recuse himself from any role in the investigation. Last week Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser, sought immunity in exchange for his testimony to congressional investigators.”
Williams and his league of whiny comrades continue to cling to the notion the “Trump White House continues to pursue a failing strategy of distraction” with “an unsupported claim that President Obama was wiretapping him. That is now a claim that all but his most stalwart allies have abandoned.”
What Williams failed to take into account was the growing body of evidence revealing that Susan Rice and others as yet unnamed within the Obama Administration did, in fact, spy on individuals connected to the Donald Trump transition and campaign according to US officials familiar with the matter. Reports said Rice’s requests contained valuable political information such as who the Trump team was meeting, the views of Trump associates on foreign policy matters and plans for the incoming administration.
"That Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice is alleged to have been responsible for this unmasking is troubling given her history of deceit and her close relationship with then-President Obama," Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said. "We need to know whether the material gleaned from the Rice unmasking is the material fed to the media in an attempt to do political damage to the Trump administration and, if so, who was responsible for leaking it."
DeSantis is Chairman of the Subcommittee on National Security.
Williams has joined Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) in fantasizing about a Trump resignation or impeachment before 2020. Kicking over sand castles and handling the Left’s dirty dealing is Trump’s strong suit.
