The Democrats and their Hopeless investigation

Roger Kimball:
... Jerry Nadler, the Jabba the Hutt of the House, has issued subpoenas to Hope Hicks and to Annie Donaldson, former deputy White House counsel and therefore a chief aide to Don McGahn, the former White House counsel, in order to inflict further torment in pursuit of their unholy grail, the removal of Donald Trump from office.

The subpoenas stipulate that the ladies are to turn over various documents by early June and then appear before the House Judiciary Committee later in the month. The subpoena says that, but I wonder what thepoena, the penalty, in subpoena really consists of in this case. Don McGahn himself, at the instruction of the White House, blew off a demand that he appear before them on Tuesday, just as AG Bill Barr did a week or two ago. Jerry Nadler stamped his feet and banged his gavel. But just as Eric Holder ignored a contempt of Congress citation, so it is likely that these people will, too. And so will Reince Priebus, a former chief of staff to the president, and Steve Bannon, his former chief strategist, who are also slated for subpoenas. ‘We couldn’t get Trump through Robert Mueller’s stupid investigation. But we’re not giving up! Come tells us nasty stories about the president.’ That’s the message.

When it comes to their make-believe ‘investigation’ of President Trump, the Democrats seem to be employing the same strategy being deployed by the Dems in the presidential race: run all the candidates! Investigate everyone Donald Trump ever spoke to!

Both are signs of desperation. And both will achieve the same end with respect to Donald Trump: nada, rien, nichts, zilch, nothing.

Appearances are not always deceiving, you see. The appearance of Democratic fatuousness and panicked desperation that you see across the fruited plain is not deceptive. You see it everywhere, in their public relations firms — The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC — as well as in the sudden chaos in the narrative emanating from the Democratic pols and, above all, in the hysterical accusations being traded among Deep State actors like John Brennan, the two Jameses — Comey and Clapper — Andrew McCabe, and others. As Victor Davis Hanson observed, the ‘higher loyalty’ crowd is now behaving like a bunch of school children caught in some naughtiness: ‘He did it, not me!’ It is sad, really. But one would have to be a more upright soul than I not to take some satisfaction in the spectacle. Which brings to mind another mot of Oscar Wilde: ‘One must have a heart of stone to read the death of little Nell without laughing.’
Democrats now claim to be investigating a "cover-up."  They have yet to say what crime is being covered up.  When Nancy Pelosi used the phrase she was referring to Democrats hound Richard Nixson from office, but he was accused of covering up the crime of people who broke into the Democrat's National Committee's office.  With collusion no longer on the table, Democrats seem in desperate search of a crime for which a cover-up might be appropriate.  What is the crime, Nancy?
