The poor American voters who elected Democrats to the House in 2018. They thought they were getting a party that might fix Obamacare since Republicans had failed to do it. Instead, they’re getting more Russia paranoia.
A plurality of midterm voters, 41%, said healthcare was their top issue, according to exit polling. And Democrats advertised to win their votes, attacking Republicans (with some success) for trying to take away some people's coverage. The issue in a distant second was immigration, at 23%. Meanwhile, 56% said the Russia investigation was politically motivated.
Democrats looked at these results, bragged about how they had been trusted to fix healthcare, and then said, "Nah! Let’s spend the next two years trying to keep this Russia-collusion business alive, shall we?"
Following investigations by the House, the Senate, all of the national media, and most importantly, by the untethered special counsel, all of which found no evidence of a conspiracy involving President Trump and Russia, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., is ready to deal out subpoenas like blackjack.
He’s already called for former White House Counsel Don McGahn to appear before his committee and retestify to what's already in the report by the special counsel — you know, the special counsel, whom Democrats trusted in vain to make Trump go away forever.
We know now that there was no there there with Trump and Russia. The report explicitly states it. And it further says that there wasn’t enough to accuse the president of obstructing justice, in large part because there was no evidence of an underlying crime.
Trump said he plans to fight subpoenas of current and former White House staff — which, again, already spent hours and hours with a special counsel that searched for two years and couldn’t find what Democrats are yet still searching for.
The special counsel report is more than 400 pages long and minimally redacted. Anything you could ever want to know about Trump and Russia is there.
It's time to give up the ghost. Santa isn't real.
