For years, the left has been laughing at Americans who believe there is a Deep State working tirelessly to thwart this president and bring him down. They’ve laughed even as it has been exposed, in plain English, for the world to see. That infamous letter to the New York Times (where NeverTrumpers inside the administration admitted to foiling the president’s authority) didn’t change their minds. Proof of all the crazy stuff the DOJ and the intel community did to drum up the fake Russian hoax didn’t move them off their certainty. And now, with this Ukraine whistleblower having been exposed as having a “political bias” against Trump and for “one of Trump’s rivals in the 2020 presidential election,” we assume that they will steadfastly maintain that there is no Deep State conspiracy against the president.
Well, like a wise man once said: There’s some people that, if they don’t know, you can’t tell ‘em.
But indeed, if reporter Ed Henry of Fox News has the right cut of it, the Office of Intelligence Community Inspector General has found that the whistleblower in question is just as politically comprised as Ye Olde Dosser author, Christopher Steele. Meaning that, in addition to having no firsthand knowledge of what Trump and the Ukrainian president spoke about on that phone call, he/she has ulterior motives to go public with this smear against Trump.
Granted, the presence of political bias does not, in and of itself, invalidate the accuracy of an allegation. But after all we’ve been through and seen for the last three years, color us mighty skeptical. With Trump ready and willing to release both the whistleblower’s complaint and the transcript of his phone call to the public, it seems like the Democrats and the media are getting ready to fall headfirst into another trap. Call it the Trap of Heightened Expectations. This will not be the first time they’ve tumbled into it.
Nancy Pelosi is adding to those expectations, calling for a formal impeachment inquiry into the president.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is adding fuel to the fire.
Hey, even Trump’s old buddy Hillary Clinton got in on the fun!
“We are in a crisis,” she told PEOPLE Magazine. “I’m in favor of impeachment. I did not come to that decision easily or quickly, but this is an emergency as I see it. This latest behavior around Ukraine, trying to enlist the president of Ukraine in a plot to undermine former Vice President Biden or lose the military aide he needs to defend against Trump’s friend, Vladimir Putin — if that’s not an impeachable offense, I don’t know what is.”
This has all the hallmarks of a saga getting ready to explode in the Democrats’ faces, leaving them extremely vulnerable in next year’s election. We look forward to the boom.
