Democrat politics, even though we thought they could not get much worse, have just sunk to depths nobody ever thought possible.
Rep. Joaquin Castro, during an appearance on CNN, insinuated that Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner orchestrated the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi…

The claim made by Castro is about as ridiculous as it gets.
He refers to reporting about Kushner supplying a hit list to the Saudi’s but does not actually name any sources for the reporting.
After doing an extensive online search, the only articles we found that remotely hint at something as nefarious as this are far, far, far left-wing opinion blogs.
Even those blogs do not actually accuse Kushner of any wrongdoing, though.
What they do say is that with Kushner’s close relationship to Saudi royalty, the administration should be held responsible, which is just as ridiculous.
Luckily, the CNN reporter doing the interview with Castro saw where the congressman was going with this and all but shut him down on his accusation.
Walk It Back
Castro, well after the damage was done, tried to walk his comments back a bit.
He sent out a tweet saying he “did not intend to accuse” Kushner of any wrongdoing.
What he was suggesting was that an investigation be opened because of the reporting.
So, let me get this right…
Some left-wing whack job makes an accusation on a random blog against a White House official without a shred of evidence and is clearly pure speculation and you want to waste taxpayer money doing an investigation.
Castro clearly proved Democrats are out of control and pulling any thread they can in the hopes of hurting this administration.
Quite frankly, Castro has proven he cannot be trusted as an elected representative and there should be immense pressure for his resignation.
Regardless of party, we as Americans cannot accept someone in office spreading or partaking in such vicious rumors.
