The Greatest Witch Hunt in the history of our Country!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019
….If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.” Pastor Robert Jeffress, @FoxNews— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019
The politicians in Washington have long since given up on doing anything of substance which they were elected to do and have fully pivoted to political theater.
For two and a half years, the Democrats talked about nothing but the Russia conspiracy hoax which culminated in the Mueller Report. I wrote almost nothing about that scandal because it was an obvious nothingburger. It would have been a huge waste of my time.
Now, it seems the House is really gearing up to impeach Trump over the Ukraine conspiracy hoax, which makes no sense in light of the previous Russia conspiracy hoax in which Trump was a puppet of Vladimir Putin. In the first conspiracy theory, Trump was being manipulated by Russian agents who cost Hillary Clinton the 2016 election. In the second conspiracy theory, he is accused of arming Ukraine against Russia in exchange for dirt on Joe Biden.
As everyone who reads this website knows, I don’t even like Trump or intend to vote for him 2020, but I wrote about how the GOP Congress had authorized $500 million in security assistance for Ukraine in November 2017. It also authorized spending $100 million on the Baltic states to “deter Russian aggression.” The Trump administration also authorized the sale of Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine in December 2017. I wrote about how it sold 210 Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine in March 2018. There has been no discernible change in Trump’s Russia and Ukraine policy which he has outsourced to mainstream conservatives.
This is obvious bullshit. It is political theater. I actually agree with Trump that it is a witch hunt. He’s not wrong either that the ultimate result of going through with impeachment will only be to further deepen partisan polarization.
