For nearly as long as anyone can remember, the democratic party has been living a “do as I say, not as I do” lifestyle.
This pervasive creed seems to have infiltrated nearly all aspects of their governing ability in recent history. They decry the Second Amendment, yet they often travel with armed security. They push the global community to work diligently on climate change, yet they gas up their private jets weeks after week.
This list could go on and on.
Their latest attempts to derail the Trump presidency come as they claim that the Commander in Chief asked Ukrainian leadership to investigate shady business deals by the Biden family. Of course, this assertion would not be a democratic one without some form of hypocrisy.
Democrats wrote to the Ukrainian government in May 2018 urging it to continue investigations into President Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia in the 2016 presidential campaign — collusion later found not to exist.
The demand, which came from U.S. Senators Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Dick Durbin (D-IL), and Patrick Leahy (D-VT), resurfaced Wednesday in an opinion piece written by conservative Marc Thiessen in the Washington Post.
The allegations are damning, so say the least.
Thiessen observed (original links):
It got almost no attention, but in May , CNN reported that Sens. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) and Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) wrote a letter to Ukraine’s prosecutor general, Yuriy Lutsenko, expressing concern at the closing of four investigations they said were critical to the Mueller probe. In the letter, they implied that their support for U.S. assistance to Ukraine was at stake. Describing themselves as “strong advocates for a robust and close relationship with Ukraine,” the Democratic senators declared, “We have supported [the] capacity-building process and are disappointed that some in Kyiv appear to have cast aside these [democratic] principles to avoid the ire of President Trump,” before demanding Lutsenko “reverse course and halt any efforts to impede cooperation with this important investigation.”
The “do as I say” democrats strike again.
