In Search Of A Crime

 

November 18, 2019



The Democrats’ pursuit of President Trump reminds me of Stalin’s secret police chief Lavrenti Beria, who told his boss: “Show me the man, and I’ll find you the crime.”

The Democrats haven’t found a crime yet, but you can’t fault them for trying. First it was “collusion” with the Russians, until Robert Mueller searched for two years and couldn’t find anything. Then the Democrats pivoted to “obstruction,” although no part of the Mueller investigation was obstructed.

The cry then became “quid pro quo,” which didn’t pan out because no money was withheld from Ukraine, and Ukraine launched no investigation. No quid. No pro.

The next talking point was “extortion,” until a Democratic focus group found that “bribery” was a stronger word (although there has been no bribery). That’s where we stand as I write this, but I’m sure the impeachment hounds will keep right on baying.

The Democrats also get points for creativity. The impeachment hearing is the first legal proceeding I can remember where they called up “witnesses” who haven’t witnessed anything.
