Watching the response from Democrats to this past election is like watching them cycle through the five stages of grief. They’ve gone through the denial phase – in trying to blame the electoral college for his victory. They’ve gone through the anger phase (continuously) in their endless riots following Trump’s victory. Conservatives protested Obama’s victory, but only for a few days – and magically managed to not destroy stores, police cars, and set fire to their own communities.
They reached the bargaining phase when Jill Stein’s “Recount 2016” campaign raised $10 million in funding….. and accomplished nothing. The depression and acceptance stages are next, but we haven’t gotten there yet.
Their latest claim? That the CIA uncovered evidence that Russia had hacked our election! Well, if it sounds crazy, that’s because it is. For all the talk of “fake news,” liberals don’t seem all too critical of their own fake news.
As the Conservative Tribune reported, there’s an update to that story, and Trump will love it.
There was just one huge problem with this uncorroborated theory: The Federal Bureau of Investigation had reached the exact opposite conclusion after completing a far lengthier probe that reportedly lasted months.
“Law enforcement officials (from the FBI) say that none of the investigations so far have found any conclusive or direct link between Mr. Trump and the Russian government,” The New York Times reported two months ago.
On Saturday, The Washington Post itself even published a story about the FBI’s skepticism about Russian involvement to favor Trump, despite originally publishing the story that the CIA had uncovered Russian interference.
Well, there goes that narrative.
What will liberals cling too next? Perhaps they’ll attack the FBI as partisan, as they previously attacked James Comey for investigating Hillary (but didn’t seem to reverse that stance then they let her off the hook). Could they be any more desperate to try to change the results of the election?
I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what they do next. Whether they like it or not, Trump is going to be in the White House sooner than they’d like to admit.
