WASHINGTON, D.C. – For two years the narrative weavers on the Left were hard at work spinning a story of Donald Trump colluding with Russians. The evidence was never there, and a massively hyped (and costly) special investigation into the matter yielded a conclusion that all but the biggest Kool-Aid drinkers could have predicted: there was no collusion.
Still, Democrats, ever mindful that investigators could turn their attention to far more culpable transgressors that don’t sport MAGA hats, are doubling down on their calls for impeachment. One congressman from North Carolina, Rep. G.K. Butterfield, is telling media in the Old North State that he is ready to vote to impeach and remove the president.
BREAKING: @GKButterfield – “I am prepared to vote for an impeachment inquiry and based on the evidence before me now, I am prepared to vote for the impeachment and removal of this president.” Full intv at 7 on @NCCapTonight #ncpol #ncga pic.twitter.com/SYJ2ouYZ1i

Butterfiled said, “While Mueller’s report again confirmed Russian interference in our 2016 election and did not exonerate Trump from obstruction; there are still many questions left unanswered. Mueller should testify before Congress. The American people deserve the whole truth.”
That last part is definitely accurate – the American people deserve to know the WHOLE truth. That means the truth about the illegal and unethical methods and tactics employed by agencies of the federal government against a presidential candidate and eventual sitting president; the actors behind the origination of the sham dossier that sparked the Trump/Russia investigation; and, the whole truth about how Democrats were arguably more in cahoots with geopolitical adversaries than anyone.
Democrats like Butterfield have latched on to the ‘Mueller did not exonerate Trump from obstruction of justice’ tangent to distract from the utter lack of merit in the Left’s original charge. The latter was clear early on, so the president’s detractors moved on to obstruction and Mueller is merely indulging them with his comments on the topic.
It’s not altogether surprising that Democrats are stilling singing this song, because Trump opposition is one of the only tunes they know. It’s a remix of ‘All Republicans are Racists,’ which still gets plenty of play. The Left relies on these manufactured narratives because their actual policies are anathema to the American way of life and their party is falling to pieces because of it.
As we get closer to 2020, and with Democrat control in the House, don’t expect these calls for impeachment to get anything but louder as the Left becomes more desperate.
