A Disaster for Democrats by The Elephant's Child

Interesting hearings today. They didn’t go quite as the Democrats had planned. And the consensus seems to be that it was a disaster for them and may have ended their pursuit of impeachment. We’ll see. I don’t expect they will give up easily.

Have you noticed that nobody seems to mention the extent to which President Trump cooperated with the investigation? He gave them everything they asked for, access to staff, his lawyer, papers, answered questions and complied cooperatively with the whole effort, though he did call it a “witch hunt” from time to time.

Lawrence Tribe, Harvard Law School, Lefty, wrote that: “the effort to save democracy and the rule of law from this lawless president  has been set back, not advanced.” That one startled me — “Save Democracy and the Rule of Law?” A little full of ourselves are we?  I continued on browsing, and discovered the same quote at InstaPundit. 422 other people were disturbed enough by Tribe’s statement to want to comment on it, quite a few angrily, some scatologically and many just wanted to tell Mr.Tribe where he could take his opinions.  Funny.



Bill Whittle: Mission Accomplished by The Elephant's Child

I always enjoy Bill Whittle’s take on events. I’m not at all sure that we have completely digested the long, long Mueller investigation. Attorney General Barr says he will probably have the documents delivered to Congress in mid-April. Congress wants “everything,’ but much will be redacted as required by law. (Grand Jury stuff and some intelligence things). Democrats remain positive that Trump is really guilty, and someone’s trying to cheat them out of their deserved victory.
