HUGE LOSS: 70 House Democrats Refuse Media Appearance Following Mueller Debacle

The Democrats are hiding in shame after Mueller’s testimony before Congress.

The Democratic Party took a huge loss yesterday after staging a hearing with FBI special investigator Robert Mueller before two Congressional committees. Unable to face the music following Mueller’s poor performance, 70 different House Democrats denied a media request.

Fox News anchor Shannon Bream issued a Tweet explaining how the Democrats were too scared to face the scrutiny after their spectacle backfired on them:

Mueller appeared confused and disheveled while giving his testimony, was unfamiliar with basic facts contained in his own report, and refused to answer simple questions regarding his investigation. Democrat dreams of impeaching Trump based on the contents of the Mueller report may have went up in smoke for good yesterday.

Republicans, including President Trump himself, are celebrating this political victory. They are making the rounds and pointing to Mueller’s testimony as more evidence that the Russian collusion investigation was a witch hunt from the start.

“It was a terrible day if you were a Democrat,” Former Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy said while appearing on Fox News yesterday. “I do want to give them credit for this. They managed to have a hearing without calling a convicted felon as a witness. I don’t want us to overlook that.”

The fake news couldn’t even spin this one on behalf of the Democrats:

The Democrats can run from media appearances, but they cannot hide from the upcoming fallout with the voters in 2020. After Mueller was exposed in the public eye, the Democrats’ Russia canard will never carry the same weight with the American people.

Mitch McConnell Preparing Exit Strategies, Potential Successors in Advance of Possible Retirement

Will Mitch retire?

Published

on

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly created a shortlist of potential successors, with the establishment Republican considering a possible retirement before his term ends. McConnell was reelected to another Senate term in 2020, and the Intercept broke the news of his retirement considerations on Thursday.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is reportedly McConnell’s first pick for his successor. Former UN Ambassador Kelly Craft and Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams are also possible replacements. McConnell, 79, has served as a Kentucky Senator since 1985.

Kentucky law currently would allow Governor Andy Beshear- a Democrat- to appoint McConnell’s successor if he retired. However, McConnell is pushing for the Republican state legislature to pass reforms allowing them to select replacements for Senators who have resigned. McConnell’s quiet boosting of legislative reforms to appoint interim Senators led to the reports of his potential retirement, although it’s unclear when he plans to leave the picture.

McConnell largely alienated the Republican Party with a forceful denunciation of former President Donald Trump during the second sham impeachment trial targeting the President, although he declined to vote to convict the President on the basis of legality. A Republican candidate in the mold of McConnell’s 20th century style would have a difficult time winning a Kentucky GOP primary, and McConnell’s appointed pick may start off in such an election with a considerable handicap. In addition, the legacy Senator remains popular in Kentucky, although at least one county party censured him for his betrayal of Trump in January.
