Do you know the definition of insanity? According to Albert Einstein, one of the greatest minds to ever exist, “insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”
That may be less of a definition than more of an analogy, but the fact remains that there’s nothing crazier than someone doing an action repeatedly and thinking that something different will happen every time. But I’d also argue that doing something repeatedly without having an actual reason is a little insane in itself, even if you don’t expect a different outcome.
Lately, it seems like the Dems are putting this theory to the test. They’re entering into the realm of insanity on a daily basis by trying to resurrect a dead issue, namely the publicly-debunked hoax of Trump-Russia Collusion.
They’re desperately clinging to this same talking point, and it’s lead them to consider another go-round with impeaching the president…and like any textbook insane person, they’re expecting different results this time.
Dems are threatening to impeach Trump for “obstruction of justice” in the Russia collusion investigation—even though it’s been revealed that the FISA warrants obtained to monitor (code for “spy on”) the president’s 2016 campaign were obtained based on a piece of fiction paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC itself.
Beating The Carcass Of A Long-Dead Horse
The fact is, the Dems can’t impeach Trump for treason or collusion with Russia. The Mueller report exonerated him and his associates, proving they weren’t guilty of conspiring with Putin’s administration.
However, in Mueller’s testimony, he himself said he couldn’t exonerate Trump from obstruction of justice—and there’s a very good reason for that: that wasn’t Mueller’s job.
That falls on the shoulders of the Attorney General, who actually DID exonerate Trump from both collusion and obstruction.
Because here’s the logical conclusion this should have led to: you can’t obstruct an investigation into a crime you didn’t commit.
Again, that’s just simple logic.
But the Dems have never really been big on logic anyway, so they’re carrying on with their plan.
In a recent legal filing, dated May 18th, Democrats said that they need access to secret grand jury materials because the House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment inquiry into charges of obstruction is still ongoing.
Wasn’t this issue put to bed last year?
Are they really SO desperate that they’ve found themselves no alternative other than digging up and then beating this long-dead horse?
Didn’t They Learn Anything The FIRST Time?
The filing by House Dems is demanding the material that Mueller showed a grand jury—information that is generally kept secret….
That’s why AG Bill Barr declined the Democrats’ request, upholding federal law.
But the Dems are convinced there’s more to the story…
They’re DEMANDING to read the FULL Mueller report, claiming that the report has redacted sections which they believe contain relevant information—even though these same people turned down Barr’s offer of reading a largely-declassified version of the report last year.
But now, all this time later, they’ve determined that these documents DEFINITELY contain the key to getting Trump out of office.
Again, it’s a logical fallacy to believe he’s guilty of trying to stop people from investigating a crime he didn’t commit! This move positively reeks of desperation…
But so does anything else that comes from the Left these days.
Maybe they’ll learn their lesson this time…
Maybe they’ll understand that Americans are sick and tired of their political grandstanding…
Maybe they’ll learn there are better things to do with their time than try to convince their voting base that Trump is a bad man who needs to be removed from office.
But then again, that’s probably hoping for too much.
“False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science, for they often endure long; but false views, if supported by some evidence, do little harm, for everyone takes a salutary pleasure in proving their falseness; and when this is done, one path towards error is closed and the road to truth is often at the same time opened.” ― Charles Darwin
