The Democrats are trying to do everything in their power to discredit President Trump and anyone who associates with him. In the process, they have only managed to discredit themselves.
One of the biggest talking points on the Left is how President Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election. This information stemmed from a dossier that was leaked to the public. The Democrats are still using this Trump-Russia dossier to prove their point of collusion, even though the dossier has been proven to be all but unverified rumors and inaccuracies, according to The Washington Times.
The 35-page document has been at the center of the conversation for 11 months now. Democrats are using the document to try and prove Russian collusion, rumors about Wikileaks, and even information about a Russian oil company.
A close look at the document shows that the details provided to the American public through this dossier are debatable at best. All the while, Democrats are still claiming that this dossier is going to be the end of President Trump.
House Republicans point out that the Democrats may have violated numerous campaign finance laws when they initially started funneling money from the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s foundation to pay for what they are calling “opposition research.”
The DNC and The Clinton Foundation funneled their money through a law firm, Perkins Coie, to a firm called Fusion GPS, which deals in “opposition research,” as they call it. The money left Fusion GPS and went to former British spy Christopher Steele, who originally wrote the dossier.
Steele allegedly handed the money out to various sources to glean information on President Trump. Most, if not all of the claims in the dossier, are still unverified, yet the Democrats are speaking about it as if it is a proven fact.
People like Rep. Adam B Schiff (D-CA), claim that the probe to uncover the money source that Steele used was nothing more than a Republican ploy to divert the topic. He was quickly forced to eat his words.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, subpoenaed Fusion GPS bank records regarding the money used for the dossier. This bold move efficiently forced the Democrats to admit that they had worked to fund the dossier.
The failure of the government was further evidenced when the Intelligence community made a brief for then-President Obama that stated Russia interfered with the 2016 election and got President Trump elected. Mr, Obama, as typical, ran with the information as if it was fact, despite having no evidence that would verify the claims.
Despite the FBI and DOJ being unable to corroborate any of the claims in the dossier, Democrats are still using the dossier as fact. Are Democrats grasping at straws trying to get Trump out of office?
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been active since July. Their goal is to find out if there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Until this point, they have not discovered one shred of evidence directly connecting President Trump to Russia.
It is obvious that Democrats are not going to give up on this story and they are going to ride it to the very end. Instead of focusing on gossip, perhaps they should consider taking the time to work together and help the American people.
