Muller’s hearing

Posted by Troy on 24th July 2019 in Current Events, Political

A study in confirmational bias.  It will change no minds in either direction.

Democrats keep harping on Trump’s desire to obstruct justice.  I say desire as he asked people to obstruct and they  did not.  So you have no  actual obstruction on a case with no crime on a case that is possibly generated on lies and inuendo dreged up by the opposition party who lost an election.  Frankly, pushing obstruction on this fact-set would be a travesty of justice.

On the otherside, Republicans effectively showed that the investigation played hardball with everyone connected to Trump and softball with anyone connected to Hillary.  He showed bias in choosing not to investigate any thread that is connected to Hillary.  And he showed bias in how he staffed the investigation.

When questioned by Democrats he more or less said “if that’s what the report says, that is correct.” When questioned by Republicans, he said “I can’t speak on that.”  He even said that on stuff that was actually covered in the report!  A lot of times, he sounded like he did not know what was actually in the report.

I think this was a total disaster for the Democrats.  They would have been better served by trying to fix healthcare or immigration or infrastructure.  They have wasted their time and look ridiculous.

Long live the Constitution!
