The Laughable, Litigious Left

The Democratic Party took pitching a hissy fit to levels never before imagined when they filed a civil suit Friday morning against the Trump campaign, the Russians, and Wikileaks. In a statement, DNC Chairman Tom Perez said, “During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found a willing and active partner in Donald Trump’s campaign.” It should be surprising that the leader of a major party doesn’t know the difference between a constitutional republic and a democracy, but one must consider the source. The tantrum was thro…the suit was filed in Manhattan’s federal district court.

Democrats claim that the Trump campaign worked closely with Kremlin operatives to derail Hillary Clinton’s campaign and steal the Presidency. At some point, according to their narrative, former leftist darling Julian Assange decided to join in on the scheme and leak information stolen from DNC computers to the Russians so they could strategically release it to help the Trump campaign. Not mentioned in the filing is the fact that the DNC refused to give the FBI access to their servers or provide any proof of their claim.

When Barrack Obama won his second term in 2012, Hillary Clinton called dibs on the Oval Office for 2016. She called it first; she called it loudest; and she called it longest. The media thought she had a good idea and, in early 2015, they called the 2016 election for Clinton. In a burst of self-reliance not seen in the party since JFK was elected, however, Democrats decided Bernie Sanders best represented their interests. Well, that wouldn’t do, so the apparatchiks swung into action.

After all the money, votes, and delegates had been re-distributed from the Sanders campaign, Clinton started planning her inauguration. The Republicans were just hanging around to provide comic relief, anyway, especially with her old friend Donald Trump as their candidate. No one douted what the outcome would be in November, but what’s the point of winning an election when you can steal it?

“Journalists” were courted. Polls were rigged. Videos were edited and aired. Russian conspiracies were hatched. New demographics were declared victims. Debate questions were leaked. Grandchildren were discussed in secret tarmac meetings protected by the FBI. It was all such a lark, Clinton didn’t even write a concession speech.

And Trump won.

And the only Russian collusion Mueller found was by the Democrats.

And McCabe got fired and targeted for investigation.

And Comey got targeted for investigation.

And only so many otherwise healthy witnesses can die from suicide, heart attacks, and one-car crashes.

So what are poor Democrats to do when they don’t get what they want? Sue, of course. That’s the new American way – Chevrolet, apple pie, and litigation. Who says the left doesn’t love this country?
