There is plenty of political hyperbole out there for us to digest on any given day, and the “resistance” schtick being molded by the democrats is merely adding fuel to the fire.
Politics itself has become a dirty game. We look to our elected officials with an automatic distrust normally reserved for used car salesmen and street beggars wearing Air Jordans. We know that there’s an angle being taken that doesn’t behoove us, but we believe that secretly acknowledging this fact someone insulates us from its more nefarious effects.
But, alas, we still find ourselves being agitated and prodded into conflict by our politicians the same way that we find ourselves being railroaded into a vehicle whose payments are just a few crisp $20 bills above our budget.
The latest unscrupulous suggestion from Capitol Hill comes to us from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who is again expounding on the “RussiaGate” conspiracy theory.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday accused President Donald Trump of giving Russia “the green light” to attack U.S. elections after the president told ABC News he’d welcome foreign information on his 2020 opponent.
“The Russians attacked our elections, and @realDonaldTrump is giving them the green light to do it again,” Pelosi said in a tweet.
The president told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos he’d accept dirt on his 2020 opponent from a foreign government and may or may not turn it over to the FBI. Trump argued that such information amounts to “opposition research” widely used by campaigns.
“They have information. I think I’d take it,” Trump said. “If I thought there was something wrong, I’d go maybe to the FBI – if I thought there was something wrong.”
Pelosi’s remarks are similarly sensational to those of former CIA director John Brennan, who yesterday proclaimed that Donald Trump could effectively nullify the work of the Central Intelligence Agency as it pertained to Russian election interference, if the Commander in Chief believed that it would behoove him in 2020.
