Bongino: Desperate Democrats Using Police-State Tactics to Investigate Trump
Last week the unfounded allegations that President Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election completely collapsed. But congressional Democrats are nevertheless pushing forward in a desperate search for evidence of wrongdoing against the president, using tactics reminiscent of the Soviet secret police under dictator Josef Stalin.
One of the central tenets of the unfounded collusion allegations against Trump is the claim that Michael Cohen, the president’s former lawyer, had gone to Prague in the Czech Republic to coordinate the supposed collusion and conspiracy with the Russians. But Cohen debunked that in his congressional testimony last week, saying he has never been to Prague.
So now House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler of New York and his fellow Trump-hating Democrats are moving on from the collusion allegations to obstruction of justice allegations against the president. If they can’t pin collusion on President Trump, the Democrats will go on a massive fishing investigation to find something – anything – to accuse him of.
Nadler’s claim is that Trump obstructed the collusion investigation. The obstruction charge would seem to indicate that the Democrats have evidence that the president took steps to stop the FBI from investigating him.
But there is no evidence of crimes that can be used in a case against the president. Instead, the Democrats are clearly targeting President Trump looking for crimes.
What is happening now only reinforces a police-state attitude that investigations by Congress and law enforcement agencies can target people instead of crimes. Why? Because Donald Trump didn’t commit any crimes….
