DENNIS PATRICK: THE RUSSIANS DID IT!

According to the narrative manufactured by the Democrat left, promoted by the liberal media and never challenged by the Republican never-Trumpers, the duly elected President Trump won the 2016 campaign with collusion by the Russians. As can be seen in the following quotes that is laughable!

According to the narrative manufactured by the Democrat left, promoted by the liberal media and never challenged by the Republican never-Trumpers, the duly elected President Trump won the 2016 campaign with collusion by the Russians. As can be seen in the following quotes that is laughable!

First came the narrative in the words of some very sore losers.

“We must evaluate the scope of Russia’s interference in our election,” chortled Senator Schumer (D-NY) as he said on Twitter 3/2/2017.

Then-Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) stated in a letter to FBI Director James Comey, and cited by The Washington Post (10/31/2016), the following. “In my communication with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government – a foreign interest openly hostile to the United States, which Trump praises at every opportunity. The public has a right to know this information.” Even The Post editorialized that Reid’s comments were “brazen,” and that there was “no public evidence to support Reid’s claim.”

Then there was the supporting narrative promoted and sustained by the media. “A Veteran Spy Has Given the FBI Information Alleging a Russian Operation to Cultivate Donald Trump.” Thus snickered David Corn in Mother Jones on 10/31/2016. Corn was referring to Cristopher Steele, the author of the discredited dossier supposedly implicating Trump’s collusion with Russia.

“The bottom line of this dossier…is that the Trump campaign didn’t just benefit from Russia interfering in our Presidential campaign. The point is that they colluded, they helped, they were in on it. ‘The operation had been conducted with the full knowledge of Trump and senior members of his campaign team.’ That’s basically what the whole dossier alleges….” This from MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show as cited in PoliticusUSA 3/7/2017.

Chuck Todd on NBC’s Meet the Press (3/5/2017) echoed this sentiment. “The growing evidence of the Trump/Russia connection threatens to consume the opening months of Donald Trump’s Presidency.” He can only wish.

Not to be outdone NPR made their stellar contribution on 3/17/2017. “Trump Embraces One of Russia’s Favorite Propaganda Tactics – Whataboutism.” NPR accused Trump of “changing the subject…a simple rhetorical tactic heavily used by the Soviet Union and, later, Russia.” NPR is straining at gnats.

One of the silly loons on the left, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA and no relation to Jesse), chimed in. “Meet Donald Trump’s KremlinKlan,” she expounds on Twitter on 3/16/2017.

Inevitably the truth won out. “Investigating Donald Trump, FBI Sees No Clear Link to Russia,” reported the New York Times on 10/31/2016.

“I have no hard evidence of collusion,” said Sen. Chris Coons on Fox News Sunday, 3/5/2017.

“[I]nsane and toxic conspiracy-mongering about Russia…has taken over not the fringe, dark corners of the internet that normally traffic in such delusional tripe, but rather mainstream U.S. media outlets and the Democratic Party.” Spoken like a true conservative – except Glenn Greenwald is a left-wing journalist at The Intercept, 3/7/2017.

Here is a headline from The Intercept on 3/16/2017. “Key Democratic Officials Now Warning Base Not to Expect Evidence of Trump/Russia Collusion”

And, even more! “House Intelligence Chairman: ‘No Evidence of Collusion’ Between Trump Camp, Russia.” This was reported by The Hill on 3/19/2017.

Will this lay to rest the Red-baiting that dominated the news cycle for months following the November 2016 election? Probably not. Some leftists will never be able to let go of Russia. There is no way to assuage anti-Trump hysteria.

It was the Russians!? Give me a break! Russia did not change or sway a single vote in the 2016 elections. Thinking that way without evidence highlights a special kind of stupid!
