While President Trump’s unpredictable style has in part exacerbated ongoing controversy over supposed Russian collusion, Trump is mostly right here.
Investigation into potential Trump- Russia collusion should proceed, however, the public’s ability to perceive truth will dissipate in such a tribalistic, divided political environment.
Meanwhile, Democrats are clutching onto whatever means available to oppose Trump, and insatiable bouts of ‘impeachitis’ have climaxed to full effect.
Not that Leftists ever wanted anything different, as they have never accepted the election result of November 8, 2016, and remain steadfast in their total opposition to Trump and his agenda.
And yet we hear Leftists whining that investigations into Russia are not about partisanship, and are instead about ‘protecting democracy’.
But if this truly were the case, then no.1: Leftists would actually accept that Trump fairly won the 2016 election.
And no.2: If Democrats had any care for the sanctity of democracy, they would universally stand in opposing the unelected, deep- state bureaucrats who are wholly intent on overturning the democratically elected Trump mandate, through releasing damaging leaks.
Put simply, Democrats don’t care about either of those issues despite their purported support for combating those who ‘interfere with democracy’.
Instead, resistance is good resistance, whether true or in the best interests of national harmony.

“I respect the move but the entire move has been a witchhunt,” he said. “I believe it hurts our country terribly, because it shows we’re a divided, mixed-up, not-unified country.”
“We have very important things to be doing right now, whether it’s trade deals, whether it’s military, whether it’s stopping nuclear … And I think this shows a very divided country,” he said.
“As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know — there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity.”
The Justice Department on Wednesday appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to lead a federal investigation into allegations Mr Trump’s campaign collaborated with Russia to sway the 2016 election that put him in the White House….
