The Democrats may be claiming that their “formal impeachment inquiry” is in full swing, but they certainly aren’t too sure about that.
They’ve refused, time and again, to authorize their probe with a vote, hoping to drag the process out just as long as they can. If that happens to interfere with the 2020 election, that would be all the better in their eyes. You see, the left sees no qualms with interfering in elections, and we needn’t look much further than 2016 to see this.
Under then-President Barack Obama, that election may very well have been tainted by a despicable maneuver on the left, in which candidate Donald Trump was spied on by US intelligence agencies for the purpose of finding “dirt” on his team’s alleged connections to Russia. In order to authorize this surveillance, the “deep state” may have even utilized information from an unverified and unverifiable source: The salacious Steel Dossier.
Now, as the investigation into this “SpyGate” debacle has turned into a criminal probe, a number of top Democrats are lashing out in anger.

Of course, their motives appear clearer the deeper you look.
For years, Schiff claimed that there was evidence of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election, but an investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller turned up none.
Instead, Schiff and fellow Democrats sought to block or discourage investigations into the origins of the Russia investigation — including possible political bias by law enforcement and intelligence officials, and alleged criminal leaks of the names of Americans who were caught up in surveillance of foreign communications.
Nadler and Schiff did not acknowledge that their own efforts to press forward with an unauthorized “impeachment inquiry” might be seen as creating “a political narrative for the next election,” one that damages the rule of law.
President Trump has routinely disparaged the “impeachment inquiry” as a “hoax” and a continuation of the RussiaGate “witch hunt”.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
