Jerry Nadler, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, insists that Bob Mueller would’ve indicted President Trump if not for the now infamous Office of Legal Counsel memo that says you can’t indict a sitting president. At the start of the House Intel Committee hearing, Mueller walked that statement back. Not that Mr. Nadler admitted that in his interview with Jake Tapper.

Let’s be clear about this: Nadler is caught in ‘God’s little acre’ — east of the rock, west of the hard place. It isn’t like he can admit the truth. The Democrats’ case for obstruction of justice died when John Ratcliffe asked Mueller a series of questions. Questions like ‘were you allowed to finish your investigation? Or was you investigation ever impeded? Or ‘were funding requests ever denied? Mueller dutifully replied no to each of those questions.

It isn’t possible to charge President Trump with obstruction of justice when he had a lengthy history of saying yes to each of your requests.

Then again, Russiagate is everything that Democrats have. Jackie Speier essentially admits that in this op-ed:

Indeed, I am still reeling from the humanitarian disaster I witnessed at the McAllen Border Patrol Station, the “Ursula” Centralized Processing Center and the Gateway International Bridge: Desperate people fleeing extreme poverty and life-threatening violence being detained in shameful conditions. Their journey is perilous, they face danger every step of the way, and the threats are no less potent once they arrive at our border. This is more than a crisis. It’s a nightmare with no end.

Things were so bad that she waited 2 weeks to write about the atrocities at this processing center. When a house is on fire, is it common to invite neighbors over for a BBQ and play some yard games before calling 911? Speier’s op-ed might have a little credibility if she’d written it the day after the trip.

Sen. Rick Scott criticized the Democrats for playing partisan games:

SEN. RICK SCOTT: Well, look, I, I, look, I didn’t do the tweets, Chuck. I can’t talk about why he did what he did. But I’m very disappointed in the people, like Congressman Cummings, who is attacking Border Patrol agents that are trying to do their job, when the Democrats won’t give them the resources to do it. They won’t secure the border. They won’t fix the asylum laws. And then Democrats want to sit there and say, “Oh, those Border Patrol agents don’t care.” Let me tell you, I’ve been to the border. I’ve talked to Border Patrol agents. I know they care about these individuals. But we have got to give them the resources and the ability to do their job.

Sen. Scott’s statements fly in the face of Rep. Speier’s op-ed. Democrats won’t fix the crisis with legislation. Democrats only criticize Republicans. That isn’t an agenda. That’s what losers do.

The Democrats don’t have a list of accomplishments. They have a lengthy list of complaints. That’s why they’ll lose their House majority in November, 2020.
