Seems like only a couple of weeks ago, the DOJ IG report was dominating the headlines, with daily revelations about how the FBI and DOJ abused their authority to overturn the election. We learned that the FBI had placed a spy in the Trump campaign, had that spy feed information to a Trump campaign worker, who was then set up to repeat that information to a foreign diplomat (who then turned around and told the FBI, which became the basis for investigating him), and a whole bunch of other goodies:
- The “accidental” meeting on the tarmac between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch had been planned in advance and was supposed to be kept secret, but was exposed by a local journalist.
- The NYT journalist who’d been breaking stories was a twenty-something woman who was sleeping with a congressional staffer who was twice her age. During those exchange of bodily fluids, quite a bit of leaking occurred.
- The FBI actively sought to hide the text messages between Szdrok and Page, apparently because his promise that he would use his position to ensure that Trump wasn’t elected might have, you know, illegal.
- Rod Rosenstein threatened the congressional oversight committee members with investigations if they continued to demand that he cooperate with their oversight.
Frankly, the list could go on, but the point is that the FBI and DOJ came off looking like the security services of third world dictatorships, where elections are decided before the votes are cast. The Democrats needed a change of narrative, and fast, so they pulled a bunch of photos of Obama-era detention facilities (which were overwhelmed by the 65,000 unaccompanied minors, including quite a few gang-bangers, who just happened to arrive at the border after the administration put out an ad for persons to act as facilitators for 65,000 unaccompanied minors who were expected at the border). Within days, every media outlet was alternately frothing at the mouth or tearing up over a policy that Trump had inherited. The hysterical rage eventually culminated in demands for public shunning, harassment, kidnapping of the children of Republicans and the abolition of ICE.
Then, Anthony Kennedy retired, and the narrative shifted again. Now, the Democrats were screaming about Trump appointing a Supreme Court Justice, because apparently only Democratic presidents can do that. Meanwhile, the bad actors at the FBI and DOJ, who sought to rig an election, remain in place. The details are dropped down the memory hole by a compliant media, but the rage that’s been stirred up continues to grow among the unhinged left.
