Democrats have been pushing collusion as a way to take out Trump for two years. But now that Robert Mueller’s report is in — and it doesn’t provide any evidence of wrongdoing on Trump’s part — one former congressman says Dems will soon be changing their tune.
“They lost on collusion,” former Rep. Trey Gowdy said of Democrats. “They’re going to have to pivot to something else.”
Will They Pivot?
While Gowdy thinks it is imperative for Democrats to find another angle of attack if they want Trump out of the White House, many Dems do not seem willing to give up the fight just yet.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), for one, is continuing to push the collusion narrative.
Even though Mueller’s report left no doubt that Trump did nothing wrong, Schiff still claims to have overwhelming evidence of collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign.
Other Democrats say they want to see the report in its entirety so they can make their own decision about his case — as if we do not already know what the outcome of their findings will be.
The taxpayers of this country just shelled out $25 million to hear Mueller’s opinion, so maybe we should just stick to what he had to say rather than wasting more money on another bogus investigation.
Major Hit to Democrats
That’s not what the Dems want to do, however, it seems. And one of the reasons Democrats are unwilling to give in just yet is because they have hung the future of the entire party on these allegations.
They were all so sure of Trump’s guilt that virtually every presidential candidate has gone on the record to say they thought Trump colluded with the Kremlin.
Now, they are all left with nothing.
Sadly, they will all more than likely continue to pursue this angle. Then, when the full report is eventually released, they will try to find some threads to pull on to keep it alive even longer.
Americans on both the left and right should be outraged if our elected representatives choose to waste one more dollar on this ridiculous allegation.
Gowdy always defended Mueller, saying he would deliver a fair and honest verdict. Now, Mueller has done just that. Democrats need to accept it and move on.
