Democrats Have Temporarily Taken Control of Narrative
You have to hand it to the Democrats. They know if you repeat something enough times, you just might get everyone to start believing it. And given they have a press corp that hates Republicans and loves everything Democrat, you know - as a Democrat leader - that when you keep repeating something over and over again the press will keep on printing it and talking about it. That's why the keep sending craxy Maxine Waters out there to talk about impeachment...just to seed it in the minds of people and see if the balloon will fly. That's why Smarmy Adam Schiff and his cohorts of gayboys in Congress keep pounding on "the importance of an independent investigation" and blaming Trump for the gridlock in DC.
I'm talking about Russia.
Russia and Trump. Russia and General Flynn. Russia is why Trump fired Comey - to obstruct justice. Over and over and over they say it, they repeat it. Yada yada yada yada. And they've now effectively changed the dialogue - away from important topics like doing what it best for the American people with tax reform or health care or jobs, to "We have to get an independent investigation of Trump" going. Forget that there are already 3 investigations into Russia and the election happening. The Democrats want the independent investigation for ONE REASON ONLY...It will keep the dialogue about Russia going into the 2018 elections and they can use it to cast doubt on Trump and Republicans running in that election, and perhaps pick up some seats in the House and Senate.
This is nothing but political posturing. The Democrats know that there is nothing to the Russia story, but its all they had and is still all they have. So they're running with it and trying to maximize its value to them at this time, and that is best done by getting an independent investigation approved.
Trump and his people need to man up right now and wrestle the narrative back from the Democrats...perhaps by indicting Hillary and some of the others in the Clinton Crime Family Syndicate for their crimes over the last 8 years. Perhaps by passing some meaningful tax cut. Perhaps by getting something major done.
