Democrats bad faith continues with use of leaks to prolong their bogus impeachment efforts

Red States:
Leak, allege, spin, repeat. Milk every false allegation for maximum political benefit, then discard after it is disproven. The Democrats and their operatives in the legacy media and Deep State use this tactic all the time, especially in matters that they consider to be of prime political importance to them. That tactic is in play in spades during the Senate impeachment trial, as we shall see. But first, a little background.

Remember the Kavanaugh hearings? Nearly every day there was a salacious allegation lodged against Judge Kavanaugh. They dribbled out one after the other, especially as it became clear that Christine Blasey-Ford’s claims of “sexual harassment” by the judge could not be proved or even confirmed by contemporary witnesses at the time of the alleged actions by Kavanaugh. Besides Blasey-Ford’s unsubstantiated claims, here are a few of the other allegations that did not pan out for the Democrats, all of which were from the 1980s:

  • Kavanaugh exposed himself to Deborah Ramirez, a classmate at Yale
  • Kavanaugh’s Yale classmate Max Stier witnessed acts of sexual harassment
  • Julie Swetnick’s allegations of Kavanaugh and friend Mark Judge getting girls drunk so that they could be gang-raped [Note: her attorney was Michael Avenatti!]
  • The fabricated Judy Munro-Leighton letter containing a rape allegation – which she later admitted was a fake and intended to “garner attention” (she was referred to DoJ for prosecution, but at the time, it served the purpose of advancing the false narrative against Kavanaugh)

Mollie Hemingway, with Carrie Severino, exposed the Democrats’ smear campaign in her book, Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court. She provides historical context by reviewing Democrat smear campaigns against Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas. Here is a very telling comment she made during an interview with Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass:


“What I think is most telling is that the moment that he was confirmed all these stories just kind of evaporated,” Hemingway said. “And if you were a real journalist who really believed that these were credible allegations against a man who might become a Supreme Court Justice, it would be even more newsworthy to pursue these allegations if the man was a Supreme Court justice.

“But the stories all kind of disappeared,” Hemingway told me. “Yes, you have some of the reporters who were involved in the anti-Kavanaugh battle putting out books. And maybe they’ll put some new stuff in there. But that frenzy that you saw last fall? If it were genuine there would have been no reason for it to abate even slightly.”

And that’s exactly what happened, didn’t it? Down the memory hole it goes after having been milked for whatever political benefit can be gained for Democrats. This happens every time after a given unsourced, breathless allegation cannot be substantiated or is debunked outright when the truth comes out. None of the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh were substantiated. None of them. And yet the Democrats insisted that he not be confirmed merely due to the seriousness of the allegations!

Does that ring a bell with respect to the ongoing attempts by the Democrat-media complex to take out President Trump? How many leaked stories have there been about the Russia hoax and the fake Steele dossier that they asserted were real and warranted impeachment of the President? How many people were celebrated and feted by the Democrats and media over the past couple of years because of their anti-Trump allegations? Avenatti, Stormy Daniels, Michael Cohen, McCabe, Strzok, Comey, Clapper, Brennan, and, of course, the execrable Adam Schiff. How does the credibility of those people look in retrospect? They’ve all been discredited and outed as bald-faced liars. Some of them are facing serious legal consequences for their actions. What does that say about the character of the Democrats and legacy media who willingly propagated their lies and false allegations?
...
Now we have the Bolten bolt from the blue.  Whenever you see the mainstream media revert to the "bombshell" meme you should be suspicious of them and their sources.  This one is especially egregious because it is the result of the half-ass job the Democrats did in preparing their case.  They were too focused on getting this done to impact the 2020 election to do their homework and get the courts to order Bolten to testify.  Now they are trying to Schlup off that responsibility to the Senate.

The media will go along with the bad faith operation and you may see some Senators fall for it, but they should not.  As Dershowitz pointed out in his brilliant argument yesterday, even if what Bolten says is true, and the President denies it, it is not an impeachable offense.  In fact, it is just the ordinary give and takes in offering aid to countries.
