Jim Geraghty, very much a #nevertrumper, writes an interesting article, wondering when all this supposed evidence will actually arrive after all these months and months and months. The Daily Caller’s Ryan Pickrell, points out two paragraphs that explain exactly why no evidence of collusion will never show
Are any Democratic lawmakers starting to fear that they’re not going to find that evidence? The intelligence community is presumably always watching the Russian government as closely as they can. The FBI counterintelligence guys presumably track Russian agents on our soil as much as possible. You figure the NSA can track just about any electronic communication between Russians and figures in the Trump campaign. If there was something sinister and illegal going on between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, the U.S. government as a whole had every incentive in the world to expose that as quickly as possible.
They didn’t expose it before Election Day, they didn’t expose it before the Electoral College voted, they didn’t expose it before Inauguration Day … How many months have the best investigators in the United States been digging into this?
One would think that there would be some actual evidence by this time. Nothing from the CIA, NSA, FBI, or any of the other alphabet soup intelligence agencies. Obama was spying on many Trump associates: is it too hard of a stretch to think there was some spying going on against Trump himself, considering that Obama spied on journalists, at the time a Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich, and there are lots of allegations that Obama spied on other members of Congress. Of course, there was little interest in the Leftist media to investigate those allegations and rumors and accusations.
Unlike, say, Benghazi and the Hillary email server investigation, nothing really new has shown up after all this time. For all the caterwauling, Democrats keep having to answer that they have no evidence. Even Maxine Waters has had to admit it.
This is reminiscent of what happened with George W. Bush, magnified 1000 times. You had a group that was accusing him of LIHOP (let it happen on purpose) and/or MIHOP (made it happen on purpose), to use the 9/11 Truther nutty acronyms. They had all sorts of theories for why Bush was involved, such as wanting to steal all the Aghany oil. For all their investigations, which included some nutters in Congress, they found nothing but Conspiracy Theories (that were easily debunked).
Then you had all the CPs on Iraq, which substituted malevolence for what was really just, at best, poor planning. Democrats attacked Bush non-stop when it became politically convenient (meaning they were doing it with the 2004 elections upcoming.) They never found any evidence that this was some big Conspiracy, such as their allegation that this was about stealing Iraq’s oil, payback for Saddam attempting to have George H.W. Bush assassinated, and more. They beat the bandwagon of the so-called Downing Street papers, but, after all those years, nothing.
Democrats attacked GWB non-stop on everything, turning anthills into Everest. Sadly, Bush never really responded, and didn’t work to defend himself nor his policies. The fact that Trump has torn up the playbook which allows Dems to be raving nutjobs in attacking Republicans while Republicans stay silent enrages Dems even more.
Geraghty ends with
With this desperate, all-or-nothing mindset, they will always insist that the evidence to take down Trump is waiting to be found, just around the next corner…
This is a game that they just can’t help playing, and will not end, because they can’t act like adults and accept that Trump beat Hillary.
