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.

He Found His Spine: Vulnerable Senator Cory Gardner Vows to Support Trump’s SCOTUS Nominee

Gardner found his backbone.

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has often been at odds with the Trump movement, being a favorite of the GOP establishment’s Senate Leadership Fund.

This is why his recent declaration that he will be supporting President Donald Trump’s choice to succeed the deceased Ruth Bader Ginsburg is so surprising. He made the announcement in a Twitter post on Monday.

“When a President exercises constitutional authority to nominate a judge for the Supreme Court vacancy, the Senate must decide how to best fulfill its constitutional duty of advice and consent,” Gardner said in his official statement.

“I have and will continue to support judicial nominees who will protect the Constitution, not legislate from the bench, and uphold the law. Should a qualified nominee who meets this criteria be put forward, I will vote to confirm,” he added.

The president’s pick for the Supreme Court will certainly fit Gardner’s criteria. Trump has announced that he will be appointing a woman to the bench.

One top contender – Amy Comey Barrett – recently made a trip to the White House, as Big League Politics has reported:

Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.

Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.

Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.

President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.

Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.

Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.

It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.

The Republicans have a great opportunity to score a major political victory and really stick it to the extreme Left with this expedited SCOTUS confirmation. The fact that a moderate like Gardner is on board is a great sign that the confirmation is likely to occur before November’s election.
