The impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump was one big circus.
Democrats took their best shot at having Trump ousted from office, but it didn’t work.
And one impeachment witness destroyed the Democrats’ favorite Trump conspiracy theory.
The Democrats can’t seem to keep their lies straight.
For three years, they sold the preposterous idea that Trump colluded with the Russian government to somehow steal the 2016 election.
This gigantic lie was the basis for endless deep state leaks, FBI investigations, and a special counsel probe that led to a handful of prosecutions for petty process crimes.
And it was all a hoax.
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s 22-month probe ended with finding zero evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
Despite this obvious fact, Democrats have still maintained that Trump conspired with the Russian government.
But one impeachment witness just drove a stake through the heart of that narrative.
MSNBC contributor Natasha Bertrand appeared on the far-left network to parrot the talking point that Russian president Vladimir Putin interfered in the 2016 election in order to help Trump get elected.
But Bertrand’s talking point was blown up by Dr. Fiona Hill, an adviser at the National Security Council.
Democrats promoted Hill’s impeachment testimony, but they left out the part where she blew up the entire Trump-Russia collusion hoax.
Hill said, “The goal of the Russians was really to put whoever became the president by trying to tip their hands on one side of the scale, under a cloud.”
And there it is.
The Democrats’ witness who specializes on Russian affairs just destroyed the talking point that Putin was trying to hand the election to Trump.
Many have argued that Putin—like the entire corporate press—believed Hillary Clinton would win in 2016, and wanted her damaged and embarrassed coming into the White House.
MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle surprisingly expanded on the truth that Dr. Hill revealed.
Ruhle pondered, “Has that not gotten enough attention? Because if that’s the case, if Russia just wanted to sow chaos and doubt and interfere with our election, with our democracy, then that could and maybe should get a lot of bipartisan support to stop it?”
That’s the sound of the Russian collusion balloon bursting.
The true travesty of the entire episode is how big media literally created a scandal out of thin air and ruined people’s lives in the process.
It’s the biggest and most disgusting political scandal of a generation.
Democrats have no interest in exploring the origins of that big lie, but the Department of Justice Inspector General is soon coming out with a report that could recommend criminal prosecutions, and Attorney General Bill Barr has made getting to the bottom of the scandal priority.
Now that the Russia hoax is dead and buried, Democrats have pivoted to the manufactured Ukraine scandal.
Even though they cobbled together an impeachment inquiry, the American people aren’t buying it.
Support for impeachment has dropped significantly among independent voters.
That means the Democrats will actually have to work to defeat Trump fair and square in 2020.
