The Left Will Never Have Closure on Russia
Commentary ^ | March 20, 2017 | Noah Rothman

Posted on 03/20/2017 3:15:18 PM PDT by PJ-Comix

There may be no one with whom partisans on both sides of the political divide have a more conflicted relationship with than FBI Director James Comey. During the 2016 election cycle, he served for partisan liberals and conservatives as, at varying points, both savior and antagonist. Observers suffered whiplash watching as the FBI director evolved from upstanding and forthright public servant to political hack seemingly overnight. Today, while few will permit themselves to say it aloud, Democrats depended on Comey to corroborate their nagging suspicion that either Donald Trump or his associates collaborated with Russian officials. It was, thus, more than a little imprudent that so many Democrats spent the better part of the last five months attacking the FBI director’s credibility.

KEYWORDS: democrats; jamescomey; presidenttrump; russia
...Finally, Comey revealed on Monday the existence of an ongoing investigation into the matter of the Trump campaign’s connections to Russia. Yet none of this is going to satisfy the left. They want a silver bullet. If Democrats are hoping that this investigation will result in the neutralization of the nascent Trump administration, though, they’re likely to be disappointed.

Sorry, leftists. James Comey will NOT be providing you with a magic way to make President Trump go away. Perhaps you should burn incense to goddess Gaia.

From another angle on the title: they still must long for the Soviets ... because this bunch would have no more problem with them than they do with ChiCom influence.

No such thing is “moveon.com” for the Left.

They will never “move on.”

Russia jilted the left, dissolving the Soviet Union.

That will never be forgiven. Just like Franco winning the Spanish Civil War.

I am so sick of hearing about frigging Russia. I ma not the only one as others around here have said once they hear Russia they just turn the channel or turn it off.

Recently had the opportunity to talk with a well educated, and well meaning, young Liberal about this obsession of the “left” with a Trump/Russia conspiracy. A very bright, well intentioned young Man, I mentioned to him the Irony of of the Leftists accusing Trump of allying with Russia, when the Left WORSHIPPED Russia in decades past. He actually said to me “When did Leftists like Russia”? An honest response from him, no question. It was instantly obvious to me that they are told what they need to know for every given scenario. He actually had no idea that American Leftists actually admired Russia at one time. This world of indoctrinated zombies is really quite amazing. I was stunned, but remained silent, as any refutation at that point, would have merely proved my insanity to him. It’s a very strange world.

They still blame Reagan for Obama’s 10 trillion dollars of debt.

Dir. Comey and Gen. Allen said there is no indication (evidence) of Russian wiretapping of Trump and no evidence of Russian tampering with the vote.

That leaves the NY Times and the media with the challenge of put-up or shut-up.

Did I mis-hear the live testimony today?

To a leftist, Russia is now committing the gravest, most unforgivable offense of all: it’s defending Christianity.

Yep. Wait till they abolish abortion in a few years. They’ll insist on nuking Russia for that.

I predict that after 2020 election, the left will find this Cruel World so intolerable that many will go Heaven’s Gate.

I think it is a given that nothing will ever be found linking the Russians directly to Trump. I suspect the anti-Trunp people know this.

Therein lies the danger, with no hard evidence to support or refute the claims, the opposition will be free to make up whatever innuendo their imagination can provide.
