Democrats in denial

April 11, 2019

The same liberal politicians and media figures who told us Trump was crazy when he said he’d win the Presidential race (he did), and that he was crazy when he said Trump Tower was wiretapped (it was), and that he was lying about not colluding with Russia (he didn’t) are now claiming that Attorney General Barr is crazy for saying it’s possible that “spying did occur” on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

I’ve written about the hysterical “methinks they doth protest too much” responses from several anti-Trump stalwarts such as Chuck Schumer, Jerry Nadler and James Clapper elsewhere today, but here’s a late entry into the Denial Sweepstakes: 

 

Eric Holder (the only Attorney General ever held in contempt of Congress over his stonewalling of the Fast and Furious scandal) tweeted that Barr’s comment was “outrageous.”  He called the idea of the Obama DOJ spying on the Trump campaign a “rightwing conspiracy theory” for which there is “zero evidence” (as long as you ignore the mountains of evidence, and those are just the personal text messages sent on government time.)  He also lectured Barr, who hardly needs any Law 101 lessons from Eric Holder, that "when there is a predicate, a legitimate basis, it’s called 'investigating,' not 'spying.'”

 

Okay, but what is it called when there is no legitimate basis, but you lie to FISA judges to get warrants to do it anyway?  The word “felony” comes to mind.

There was also an excellent point brought up in an online comment thread that I read. These panicked Democrats are right; “spying” is the wrong term because spying is a passive action.  It implies that they were merely monitoring the opposition campaign inappropriately, not taking actions to influence events.  A more accurate term for what appears to have happened would be “sabotage” or “entrapment.” 

 

If they’d like to agree to some bipartisan compromise, I promise not to call what happened to the Trump campaign “spying” if they’ll agree to start calling it “sabotage” and “entrapment.”  Deal?

    Eric should be in jail. Not only for crime but stupidity. But then we all know he doesn't care about evidence, he buries it whenever he can because he is not enough of a man to face reality. Yep, it's coming out. There are so many dems who are demonstrably insane, we don't have enough nut houses to hold them all. Not even psych wards in jails. I have a solution for that but no one would like it.

    I have not heard of liberals who attack conservative speakers being charged with hate crimes. "Progressives" appear to be the most hate filled people of all, so when they physically attack conservatives they should be charged with hate crimes.

    You are exactly right Mike Huckabee. The Democrats have been engaged in illegal and unethical Behavior 4 years. I know because I am 69 years old and I have observed them for many years. They unethically and illegally got a fisa warrant and someone should call them out on it. I believe the American people are tired of them and are ready to do exactly that which needs to be done . We are ready to bring them (Democrats) to meet American Justice.

    SABOTAGE is the word for what the Democrats routinely do, they don't do any legislating that amounts to anything but obstruction!!

    May have already noted this Gov.? You have to love AG Barr. Unobtrusive, direct, no grandstanding or self-aggrandizing, just clear, concise statement of fact. In this current Barr iteration, he reminds me of a favorite TV detective, Columbo. Just as he is about to leave some 'suspect,' who now thinks he just escaped, Columbo stops and says, "Uh, there is just one more thing." After noting that 'one more thing,' the crook knows the jig is up. BARR: "I believe there was spying." Watching these cockroaches running, as they know the light is about to come on, has me laughing so hard it's difficult seeing through the tears!

    I am so proud of his wanting to bus Immigrants into Liberals neighborhoods. I have been saying it for awhile only I said "give them a map to their neighborhoods". I am going to vote for President Trump again and I really hope he wins because he is so good for our country and just to see what the Libs will do. Many socialist countries are willing to take them in if we could only get them to leave like they promised to do. That is just another lie for them.

    that's funny Mike, well there is a penalty for whatever they did. All are, as you so adequately pointed out, are felonies. They ALL knew better and did it anyway on a false premise. Now, they are going to have to pay for that assumption which in itself is a felony. So this is gonna be fun, quotable statutes every where. As the saying goes, they can run but they can't hide." It's all been exposed and some can't seem to shut up. Best part? We have the video tape with audio.
    That's all we need to do for 2020 is pay it back and make them explain. GOP doesn't haver to make ANYTHING up.. It's all out there in print etc. for everyone to read and hear. ha, ha!

    Lets call it what it really is, High treason as they are attempting to overthrow a duly elected president with a coup!

    there WAS no investigating, it was spying. Halper etc. tried to get IN the campaign, he and others tried to get George and Carter to buy the line that there was dirt on hilary and it didn't fly. Yes the dems are in denial because they KNOW they spied by definition. They didn't NEED a FISA warrant if they were only investigating. they needed one to SPY on the campaign. It was an external invading the internal. dems got caught, and they now must cover it up because they are not adult enough to admit they broke the laws in 5 ways to sunday. I think Barr knows a lot more than he is letting on and the stuff is gonna hit the fan. And when it does, whoa Nellie.

    In denial? Really? they have been in denial since Reagan. The corruption was no obvious in ovomit, and in Clinton. You had to be under a rock not to see it.. T hat is unless you were a communist. Their delusion is about to become VERY costly. many re going down and great will be the fall thereof. Kinda like Sampson when he took that temple down. I can't wait, I can but I'd prefer not to. We need our country back.
