The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
…don’t expect anything to really come of it.
In fact, you should expect it to occupy most of the fake news media attention over this weekend, quickly fade from view starting on Monday, and be withdrawn entirely within a few weeks.
The DNC did not make a legal move today by filing that lawsuit, it made a political move. Democrats were getting crushed by the back-firing of the James Comey teen angst tour, the IG’s criminal referral on Andrew McCabe, and the news that the IG had opened a new investigation into Comey and the likelihood he illegally leaked classified information to the New York Times in the memos he fed to that fake newspaper through an intermediary.
On top of all of that, President Trump’s polling numbers this week are coming in at their highest point since his inauguration, and the Democrat edge in generic congressional polling data continues to narrow.
In light of all this terrible news, the Democrats had to take some action in advance of the weekend or have all this negativity dominate the Sunday talk shows. So, they got the nitwits who run the DNC to file this lawsuit in order to give all of their willing dupes in the fake news media something else to obsess over throughout the weekend.
Yes, the DNC is so dead broke it couldn’t pay lawyers to run with this lawsuit if it wanted to, but think about it from their perspective: This lawsuit gives all of the Democrat press agents in the fake media an excuse to spend the entire weekend doing nothing but re-hashing all of their fantasy theories about the Trump campaign “colluding” with Russia.
So, from a political perspective, it’s really brilliant, even if it is a complete non-starter from a legal perspective.
Seriously, the DNC could never even think about letting this “lawsuit” actually make its way into a courtroom, simply because of what they’d have to surrender in the discovery process. The central claim in the suit is the demonstrably false claim that “Russia” hacked the DNC computer server and fed thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks.
Ok, so, the first thing the defendants do is subpoena the DNC computer server as part of the discovery process. The second thing that happens is that President Trump pardons Julian Assange, who would then be free to travel to the U.S. and provide his proof that the emails WikiLeaks obtained were provided not by anyone from Russia, but by murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich.
Does anyone really think the DNC is going to voluntarily reopen that particular can of worms? Well, ok, DNC Chairman Tom Perez is a raging Marxist moron, but he presumably has someone on staff who might point out these realities to him.
And really, that’s just for starters. After all, the DNC fixed its own primary process in order to ensure the Pantsuit Princess would win its nomination. It then paid millions of dollars to agents of foreign countries – including Russia – to dummy up the fake Trump Dossier, which it then used in an attempt to fix the general election. These are all matters of public record at this point.
No, this was not a legal move today, and this is a lawsuit that will quietly go away in very short order. This was a political move designed to give the fake hosts of the Sunday morning talk shows a shiny object to chase. And trust me, with the possible exception of Chris Wallace at Fox News, all the fake hosts will thrilled to death to play along.
Because that’s what the fake news media does for its benefactors in the Democrat Party.
That is all.
