Look, this is what we are up against, and as much as I usually say eff-em to the cultists, the problem is that not enough Americans are engaged in what is happening. We’ve talked about the poll numbers before, and it is not just Possum Hollar.
The Russian Usurper keeps screaming EXONERATED and NO COLLUSION and HOAX, and it is sticking, and our long-winded, fact-based replies are bouncing off of everyone or more accurately never heard.
Anyway, I would like to urge everyone to read this piece by David Frum (I know, Hell just froze over) as he states clearly and concisely:
A foreign power interfered in the U.S. election to help the Trump campaign. The Trump campaign welcomed the help and repeatedly lied about it. The lying successfully obscured some questions the investigation sought to answer; in the end, it found insufficient evidence to charge a broader conspiracy. President Trump, in public and in private, worked to stop the investigation.
And as a follow-up, please read this piece from Dan Pfeiffer on Crooked Media: A PLAN TO WIN THE IMPEACHMENT FIGHT:
Donald Trump has abused his power to hide multiple crimes and massive corruption. He has used the Presidency to punish his enemies, reward his friends, and enrich himself at the expense of the American people. No one is above the law, not even a rich politician.
While I think the Mueller report is the pathway to get us to start impeachment, I think Pfeiffer is very smart to frame it as not being solely about the Mueller report. I think people who are inclined to believe the shrieking from the White House might hear a different focus, um, differently.
