In 1927, the hated New York Yankees put together one of the most feared lineups in baseball history. The middle of their order was known as ‘Murderers Row‘. Their batting order featured center fielder Earle Combs, left fielder Bob Meusel and second baseman Tony Lazzeri. The ‘Row’ also included 2 other guys — Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth — who, I’m told, were pretty decent, too.

The Democrats have a different type of Murderers Row. The Democrats haven’t hesitated in squashing people’s liberties. David Avella and Georgia State Senate Majority Leader Michael Dugan put together this article to highlight the right way to govern during the Wuhan Virus crisis.

Americans never wanted to see small-business owners treated like criminals. We never wanted our parks and beaches to be designated as inherently dangerous. We have never been required to stay away from loved ones who are sick or dying.

As a nation, we understand the severity of the health crisis we now face, but the law should never be used to persecute an individual’s freedom nor to prosecute Americans operating legal businesses to support their families. Charging small-business owners with crimes is just too much, especially when the public wants leaders to pursue a level-headed approach.

That’s why governors like Gretchen Whitmer, Tim Walz, Tom Wolf and J.B. Pritzker are experiencing frequent protests. They don’t care about people’s rights. They just care about feeding their appetite for power. They are legitimately titled tyrants. This is how incompetent Michigan is:

In Minnesota, Tim Walz’s regulators are still admitting COVID positive patients back into nursing homes. In Pennsylvania, the state’s Commissioner of Health moved her mother out of a nursing home when she found out that COVID patients were getting moved into that nursing home. That’s before talking about Walz’s Department of Health not properly transporting tests to the lab. (They forgot to refrigerate the kits.)

Hundreds of people have died needlessly because these tyrants are incompetent or vindictive or both. This is how to do things right:

On March 14, Kemp issued an executive order declaring a public health state of emergency, calling forth the emergency powers of his office with the compliance of the legislature. On March 16, the legislature convened to ratify Kemp’s order. At that time, the House and Senate each had the opportunity to concur with or terminate the governor’s declaration. Having determined the gravity of the situation demanded emergency action, the Senate and House quickly agreed.

There are also two other features of what was done in Georgia that would serve other states well to match. First, public health state of emergencies must have the concurrence of the General Assembly. Second, the legislature must maintain the right to terminate the state of emergency at any time.

Together, these checks on the executive branch limit what the governor may order and create a partnership where the executive branch of government is agile enough to meet citizens’ needs without legislation.

That’s doing governance right. Michigan and Minnesota are governance that only a tyrant would love.

This article highlights DFL Gov. Tim Walz’s incompetence. In it, we learn that “A Minnesota National Guard unit botched COVID-19 testing for 300 residents and staff members at a St. Paul nursing home Monday, leaving many with pain, discomfort and bloody noses.” That’s just the start of the litany of problems. Then there’s this:

In what one health official acknowledged was “a disaster,” the test samples from Episcopal Church Home were later ruined because they were not stored in coolers while being transported to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. State officials quickly apologized to Episcopal Homes leaders and said they’ve already taken steps to ensure such mistakes aren’t repeated. Nevertheless, an elder care advocate said the incident raises serious questions about whether Minnesota can accurately and effectively carry out widespread testing.

It’s the leaders’ responsibility to establish proper procedures. Gov. Walz and Commissioner Malcolm share the blame for not establishing those procedures. Further, they share the blame for not getting the right supplies in the right hands at the right time.

Kris Sundberg, the executive director of Elder Voice Family Advocates said what everyone was thinking when she said “This just further erodes any trust that we have had in the Department of Health. I think we have a long way to go to really have the clearly thought-out protocols we need in order to do [widespread] testing.” I’d expect better execution from the Washington Generals than we got from this leadership team.

A statement Wednesday from the Minnesota State Lab Partnership acknowledged “that there was an isolated incident related to the packaging and shipment of specimens to one of the testing sites. Ensuring the temperature integrity of specimens is critical to testing. We are accelerating and strengthening our training program to ensure all specimen collections, packaging, and shipping are performed to the highest standards.”

You’ve got to be kidding me. The program was put in place without training the personnel first? This is Frontline Management 101. This isn’t a graduate level course.

Jan Malcolm, state health commissioner, also apologized. In an e-mail to Plakut Wednesday, she said officials have been working to quickly develop new training and protocols for swabbing and infection control at long-term care facilities, but “in this rapid launch, important steps in the process were missed and there were miscommunications.”

Incompetence is this administration’s hallmark. Minnesotans had hoped that getting rid of Mark Dayton would turn the page on incompetence. Based on results thus far, it’s apparent that Minnesotans placed their hope in the wrong candidate. After viewing this video, it’s apparent that the DFL is devoid of competent leaders:

Melvin Carter is the African-American version of Tim Walz. They’re both timid. They’re both unwilling to trust the people. Apparently, trusting people isn’t the DFL way.

Anyone that thinks that DFL Gov. Tim Walz’s decision-making is a portrait in logic should schedule an appointment with a mental health expert ASAP. At yesterday’s briefing, Gov. Walz explained the rules for opening up bars and restaurants. We now know that “Bars and restaurants in Minnesota can open June 1 for outdoor service under a revised COVID-19 response strategy announced by Gov. Tim Walz on Wednesday that also allows for limited reopening of hair salons and campgrounds.”

We also know that Benevolent King Walz said “While the virus won’t yet allow for business as usual, let’s do what we do best after winter in Minnesota and head outside. Whether it’s a Jucy Lucy, a plate of tamales, or a walleye dinner, Minnesotans can support their local restaurant by enjoying a socially distanced meal outdoors.”

Then there’s this:

Republican lawmakers balked at the lack of accommodation for places of worship, which cannot have outdoor services of more than 10 people even though restaurants can now serve 50 outdoors. “I see no reason why churches are any more dangerous a place for coronavirus transmission than Walmart or a mall,” said Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka, R-East Gull Lake. “I am dumbfounded why the governor would treat churches this way and hope the federal courts will intervene.”

That rule is as dead as Gov. Walz’s logic is confusing. Gov. Walz’s rules hint that people dining out are able to make better health decisions than people attending church services. In what warped solar system does that make sense? Hint: When Gov. Walz saw Alice, did she greet him?

During the video, Gov. Walz said “I wish I could tell you that there was a perfect answer. I wish I could tell you that the ones we have are absolutely right.” This is what a control freak sounds like. Why not establish sound guidelines (social distancing, wearing masks, etc.), then let people figure it out? This is what happens when a politician doesn’t trust the people. This sounds like a threat more than a guarantee:

“It is going to get worse here, this virus, before it gets better. That is an absolute guarantee,” said Walz, predicting 1,000 deaths in Minnesota by the end of the month.

After finding out that we’re still sending COVID-19 patients back to nursing homes, which is a huge mistake on Gov. Walz’s part, he’s virtually telling us that he’s working to create this crisis. If someone has COVID, sending them into the midst of a building filled with people whose immune systems are compromised is like giving an arsonist a can of gas, some matches and a field of dry grass. What do you think will happen? This is pure BS:

The concern for state public health leaders is that the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 spreads more rapidly than was initially known, particularly in indoor areas with limited airflow.

Florida, Georgia and Texas have opened up the most. They haven’t seen the things described in the previous paragraph. We were told that they were opening too soon, that they’d kill people and that they’d have blood on their hands. Here’s Gov. DeSantis’ reply:

It’s time for these reporters to work a little harder. It’s time for them to admit that they’ve gotten things badly wrong by trusting the liberal narrative. The facts speak for themselves. Res ipsa loquitur. There’s that old reality rearing its ugly head and getting in the way of a well-spun narrative. There are times when I’m convinced that Jeremy Olson and Briana Bierschbach aren’t employed by the Star Tribune. At times, I wonder if they’re paid by the Star Tribune but employed by the DFL.

Gov. Walz has failed. He hasn’t trusted Minnesotans. He’s executed his plans poorly. I wouldn’t trust him to run a lemonade stand. If you searched for the definition of incompetence in a dictionary, there’d be a picture of Tim Walz and Andrew Cuomo instead of words.

Good for the Supreme Court for telling Jerry Nadler to pound sand over their motion to get Mueller grand jury testimony declassified. The Supreme Court hasn’t issued a final ruling on the lawsuit but that’s likely heading the Democrats’ direction.

The Supreme Court temporarily denied a motion Wednesday from House Democrats to obtain grand-jury testimony and other documents from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation as they conduct what they’ve referred to as an “ongoing presidential impeachment investigation” into President Trump.

House Democrats are obsessed with finding something that will help them throw President Trump out of office. The Democrats’ hatred of President Trump is so strong that they’ve said no to multiple proposals that would’ve helped Hispanics and other blue collar workers. Impeachment isn’t going anywhere. The Democrats know this.

Rather than putting together ideas that appeal to all Americans, Pelosi’s Democrats have voted for things that excite their base. Despite that appeal to their base, Democrats trail badly in the enthusiasm gap, both in terms of the presidential election and in House races.

There’s a reason why grand jury testimony is kept confidential. If testimony taken during a grand jury isn’t enough to indict a person, that information shouldn’t be used as a political weapon. Democrats have seen tons of information. It didn’t lead to a conviction of President Trump. He’s now exonerated. Getting a second or third or fourth bite at the apple won’t convict President Trump. No amount of wishing will change that. It’s time that Democrats accept that.

Let’s hope that this is just part of a bigger movement. House Democrats want to investigate a law-abiding president. Whether you agree with his policies or not, there’s no denying that President Trump has obeyed each court order. That can’t be said about his predecessor. Gun-grabbing Democrats want to take away the rights of law-abiding gun owners. Each time they threaten a gun grab, the rank-and-file NRA strengthens and gets more motivated.

By comparison, the previous (Democrat) administration unmasked law-abiding citizens that they thought were conspiring with Russians. They didn’t unmask these law-abiding citizens because they had proof of illegal activity. They unmasked these citizens because they’d advised a candidate, aka Donald Trump. Time after time after time, these Democrats have let their hatred of Trump get the better of them. This isn’t normal. It’s proof of derangement.

People have started protesting against Democrat governors like Tim Walz, Gretchen Whitmer, J.B. Pritzker and Tom Wolf. The protests have focused on these governors’ illogical, unconstitutional and overreaching executive orders. If they keep this up, they’ll increase President Trump’s odds for re-election.

The thing that’s inescapable from this article is that the Tim Walz administration doesn’t give a damn about residents of long-term care facilities, aka LTC facilities. It isn’t often that I’d utilize such over-the-top language but this time, it’s found in the Star Tribune article itself. Check it out if you don’t trust me.

The article opens by saying “Despite the devastating death toll, Minnesota nursing homes are still being allowed by state regulators to admit coronavirus patients who have been discharged from hospitals. Early in the pandemic, the Minnesota Department of Health turned to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to relieve the burden on hospitals that were at risk of being overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients. Minnesota hospitals have since discharged dozens of infected patients to nursing homes, including facilities that have undergone large and deadly outbreaks of the disease, state records show.”

This is almost as frightening:

Now that practice is drawing strong opposition from some lawmakers, residents’ families and health watchdogs, who warn that such transfers endanger residents of senior homes that are understaffed and ill-equipped to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

Why just some lawmakers? Why aren’t all lawmakers upset with this stupidity? Further, Minnesota’s hospitals never got overwhelmed. Why did the Walz administration turn to “nursing homes and other long-term care facilities”? My annual physical was scheduled for late-January. That got postponed because the clinic was converted to overflow for the St. Cloud Hospital at the start of COVID. The appointment was rescheduled again to March 31. Again, I was told that it was related to COVID. The entire clinic was emptied out to create extra bed space.

The point is that hospitals and clinics prepared for a spike in COVID cases. There never was a threat to hospitals running out of space in Minnesota. There might’ve been a chance we wouldn’t have had enough staffing but that’s a different contingency to plan for. LTCs certainly weren’t better staffed than hospitals. This is the closest video I found in an hour of searching dealing with the topic of nursing homes in the past week:

The number of COVID-related deaths are increasing as a direct result of sending COVID-infected seniors into LTCs. This doesn’t require medical school training to figure out. It requires a memory of what Andrew Cuomo did in New York. This proposal should be immediately rejected:

They are calling for more state scrutiny over transfers, including stricter standards over which nursing homes should be allowed to accept COVID-19 patients from hospitals.

Wrong! They shouldn’t be allowed into nursing homes. Period. If nothing else, the state should set up a facility that could hold those elderly COVID-19 patients. Why set things up so that an entire facility gets infected? Karin Housley positively nailed it:

“It makes no sense to bring more COVID-19 patients into facilities that have already failed to protect them,” said Sen. Karin Housley, the Republican chairwoman of the Senate Family Care and Aging Committee. “If it were my mom or dad in one of these facilities, I would be really worried.”

This is frightening:

State health officials and long-term care industry representatives have defended the practice of discharging some COVID-19 patients to nursing homes, saying it is part of a broader strategy to conserve critical hospital beds during the pandemic. Long-term care facilities can provide treatment for coronavirus patients who still need care, but have stabilized enough that they no longer require hospitalization, officials said.

How’s that worked thus far? Thus far, 80% of COVID deaths have happened at nursing homes. That indicates that these ‘experts’ have been wrong.

Jeff Johnson Announces Bid for Stearns County Commissioner

St. Cloud, MN – St. Cloud resident Jeff Johnson has announced that he will run for the 4th district Stearns County commissioner seat. Johnson, 54, is an airline pilot and a former small business owner. He was elected to the St. Cloud City Council in 2010 and re-elected in 2014. He previously served on the Stearns County Board of Adjustment and made an unsuccessful bid for the Minnesota state senate in 2006.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed a reprieve from politics since I left the City Council in January 2019,” Johnson said. “It’s time to get back on the front lines of the battle once again.” Johnson’s priorities include public safety, county transportation infrastructure, and increasing human services efficiencies. “It was mind numbing to see the county human services budget go from the black to deep red in a matter of a few years. I am also deeply concerned about small businesses throughout the county who are struggling from unfair decisions made by Governor Waltz.”

Johnson has a vocational diploma in aircraft maintenance, a bachelor’s degree in Aeronautical Studies, a master’s degree in aeronautical science, and a Ph.D. in higher education administration. He is married to Julie Johnson, a family practice physician with Simplicity Health in St. Cloud.

Another day, another judge has ruled against another Democrat governor. This time, “Circuit Judge Matthew B. Shirtcliff granted a preliminary injunction to 10 churches that had sued the governor.” Unfortunately, Gov. Kate Brown’s office “appealed to the state Supreme Court to keep her emergency orders in effect.”

Gov. Brown, another iron-fisted Democrat, issued a statement after appealing. The statement said “This will ensure we can continue to safeguard the health of all Oregonians, including frontline health care workers, those living in nursing homes, workers in agriculture and food processing plants, and Oregonians with underlying health conditions, while the legal process moves forward.”

In his opinion, Judge Shirtcliff struck a different position. Here’s what Judge Shirtcliff said:

The governor’s orders are not required for public safety when plaintiffs can continue to utilize social distancing and safety protocols at larger gatherings involving spiritual worship. Plaintiffs have shown that they will be harmed by deprivation of the constitutional right to freely exercise their religion. Other plaintiffs have also shown great economic harm to their businesses and their ability to seek livelihood.

First, Brown will lose the fight with churches. If churches utilize social distancing, then Gov. Brown, or any other iron-fisted Democrat governor for that matter, can’t prohibit the free practice of religion. Overcoming the Bill of Rights is the legal equivalent of fighting uphill with a weight tied to your waist.

The legal position on other restrictions is that they have to be the least intrusive restrictions that accomplish the government’s legitimate goal. If these store owners show that they’re following the same rules that big box stores are using, then this fight is finished.

This isn’t the only instance of a Democrat governor overreaching. J.B. Pritzker, Illinois’s iron-fisted Democrat governor, is attempting an end-run around the legislature. Pritzker “filed an emergency rule that would penalize owners of restaurants, bars, gyms, barbershops and other businesses for reopening before coronavirus restrictions are lifted.” That’s unconstitutional because governors don’t write laws. They enforce them. State Sen. Dan McConchie replied through Twitter:


This says it all:

This is a clear breach of the separation of powers. It is the role of the legislature to make the law, and the role of the Governor to enforce it. He has assumed both roles and shut out the legislative branch. It is beyond time for the Governor to stop ruling by fiat.

Sen. McConchie better file a lawsuit on this because a judge’s ruling will take this out of Pritzker’s hands.

UPDATE: The Oregon Supreme Court intervened in the case, essentially throwing out the Shirtcliff ruling. This is, in my opinion, proof of why they should’ve filed this in federal court. State courts can get packed with partisan political operatives, which appears to have happened here.

Last week, Marie Harf, whom I’ve nicknamed ‘Baghdad Barbara’ because she’s as trustworthy as Baghdad Bob, tried peddling some Democrat spin while appearing on Outnumbered. Saying that Lara Logan demolished Harf and the Democrats’ talking points is understatement. Harf didn’t wave her little white flag but that’s mostly because isn’t a person of integrity.

Harf started by saying “Yesterday, Barr basically made a statement that said, ‘You can lie to the FBI, and that’s okay.’ And there is still a ton of evidence that the investigation was absolutely an appropriate one, that Flynn was absolutely someone who should have been investigated, and he comes at the end of the day, chose to lie about his contact with foreign countries. If Bill Barr wants to say that’s not a crime, that is a precedent I’m not sure either party wants to set.”

Actually, the law says that it isn’t automatically a crime to lie to law enforcement. For it to be a crime, the lie has to be material to an investigation that’s properly predicated. Thanks to the transcripts that Ric Grenell forced Adam Schiff to release, we now know that the Flynn investigation wasn’t properly predicated. That means that the investigation was bogus, which meant that Gen. Flynn’s statements weren’t material to a legitimate investigation. Here’s how Logan replied to Ms. Harf:

Oh my God. Wow. I feel like I’m in some kind of fantasy sci-fi alternative reality movie. That couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m not sure there’s a word that came out of your mouth that’s actually true.

Look at the transcripts of the conversations. There’s a big difference between talking to people and colluding. If that’s a standard for collusion, how come you not screaming for accountability for Fusion GPS and the DNC and the Clinton campaign for literally meeting with agents from Vladimir Putin, for taking disinformation and using that against a political rival in the presidential election in this country.

I mean, the message was not — the message was exactly the opposite to millions of people in this country. Now that you can just lie to the FBI and get away with it. The message was that accountability, that so many people in this country have been asking for, for so long, it’s finally actually going to happen.

Bill Barr has never said that his mission is about defending president trump. He said it in the CBS interview and he said it from the beginning, that his duty is to protect the rule of law in this country. To protect the Justice Department and law enforcement. He’s doing that holding them to the standard to which they have sworn to uphold. And holding them to the same standard that every single person in this country would be held to if they were facing similar charges. So, what about lying to Congress? Because all of these people, McCabe and Comey, and all of them, they have all lied and lied and lied. And there is more information to come, hear, that is going to show exactly what really happened with Michael Flynn.

The FBI’s actions in the Flynn interview were reprehensible. According to this tweet, the Flynn investigation was crumbling:


In other words, the people who violated Gen. Flynn’s civil rights (“FBI leadership”) didn’t want to stop harassing Gen. Flynn. To steal a line from Ms. Harf, “I’m not sure” that’s a good look for Democrats to adopt.

Finally, Bill Barr determined that there wasn’t proper predication for the Flynn investigation. That’s why he later determined dropping the case against Gen. Flynn was the right decision. That’s why Judge Sullivan is trying his best to keep the case alive.

Gov. Gretchen ‘the Witch’ Whitmer is a vindictive person. The latest proof of that came this weekend when “state regulators opted to suspend [Karl] Manke’s barber and shop licenses.” Manke’s offense? Suing Gov. Whitmer for her overly restrictive executive order and winning.

After the state suspended Manke’s license, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said “It is paramount that we take action to protect the public and do our part to help save lives.” David Kallman, Mr. Manke’s attorney, replied “I think it’s totally vindictive. It’s petty, it’s totally in retribution because they didn’t like the court order from earlier this week.” Here’s the good news:

Manke is still able to cut hair until the suspension is served; it had not reached the barber’s hands as of Wednesday afternoon, the paper reported. He can ask for an immediate hearing with an administrative law judge at the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs to fight the order.

Here’s the best news: because Mr. Manke is following the CDC’s guidelines on social distancing, wearing face masks, etc., it’s likely that he’ll win his appeal. It’s difficult to picture Mr. Manke’s attorney opting for the administrative law judge hearing. It isn’t difficult picturing him filing for a TRO in a real court where appeals are allowed.

Each step of the way, Gov. Whitmer, a Democrat campaigning to be VP Biden’s running mate, has overstepped her constitutional limits:

Speaking to Fox News on Sunday, Manke said: “Obviously she [Whitmer] has no concept at all, the damage that she’s doing to our state and to families.” His defiance attracted the attention of Michiganders from across the state who drove hours to support Manke at his shop, some even getting haircuts.

It isn’t like Gov. Whitmer cares about people. She’s destroying Blue Collar Michigan’s jobs. Gov. Whitmer’s EOs have been draconian. The evidence is piling up against Gov. Whitmer:

Thus far, the states that’ve been most aggressive in reopening their economies haven’t seen the spikes that were predicted. Those smaller states that’ve seen hotspots develop quickly implemented plans that will limit the spread of COVID. It isn’t a matter of whether there will be outbreaks. It’s a matter of whether those societies can mitigate the spread and limit the damage. The answer to that is yes. The spread can be quickly stopped as long as you don’t send COVID patients into nursing homes:

Nursing homes are also required to readmit residents with COVID-19, which has been a source of contention between the state and nursing homes. Stephen Hanse, president and CEO of the New York State Health Facilities Association, told The Citizen last week that there have been concerns since the March 25 advisory from the state Department of Health.

These Democrat governors have been downright stupid. That applies to Gov. Whitmer and Gov. Cuomo.

Anyone explaining how the unmasking of Gen. Flynn was routine isn’t trustworthy. To believe that the Flynn unmasking was innocent, I’d have to believe that the same people who spent $40,000,000 investigating the fake Trump-Russia collusion, appropriated 40 FBI agents and hired 19 corrupt attorneys just wanted better understanding of who was talking to the then-Russian ambassador to the US. That’s spin. This was a vendetta led by Jim Clapper, Jim Comey, Robert Mueller, Peter Strzok, Andrew Weissman et al.

The cabal that didn’t hesitate in using the Steele Dossier to obtain a FISA warrant against Carter Page suddenly developed integrity? (Let’s remember that they didn’t get their warrant the first time when they filed their application without the discredited dossier.) I don’t think so. The definition of a cabal is “a small group of secret plotters, as against a government or person in authority.” That definition fits Clapper, Comey, Mueller, Strzok and Weissman perfectly.

Again, to the Weissman/Strzok/Clapper/Comey cabal, this was a vendetta. They hated President-Elect Trump. Strzok told Lisa Page that he went to Walmart once and that he could smell the Trump supporters. Suddenly, this cabal of Trump haters are doing things purely out of civic pride? Shame on them for thinking that we’re that stupid.

We know the stories. Jim Clapper insisted in public that President Trump was a Russian asset but testified under oath that he “never saw any direct empirical evidence that the Trump campaign or someone in it was plotting [or] conspiring with the Russians to meddle with the election.” Susan Rice testified to this:

Susan Rice, who served as Obama’s national security adviser, testified in September 2017 that she hadn’t seen evidence of Trump-Russia collusion during questioning by former Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina.

Rice certainly didn’t tell viewers that when being interviewed on TV. Why should we think that she’s a person of integrity? Peter Strzok found out that field officers wanted to shut down Crossfire Razor, the investigation into Gen. Flynn. Immediately, he ordered that Crossfire Razor not be stopped. A day later, there was a meeting in the Oval office about unmasking. Three weeks later, FBI agents entrapped Gen. Flynn.

Why shouldn’t people think that these different groups weren’t working together? They definitely had common purposes. They definitely weren’t people of integrity. They all hated the thought of a Trump administration. This interview is worth watching:

The FBI agent who foolishly asked on paper what the goal was is Bill Priestap. Here’s Priestap’s ‘contribution’ to the unmasking fiasco:

Priestap’s memo reflected his own thoughts on the FBI’S internal debate about interviewing Flynn. “What’s our goal? Truth/admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?” Priestap wrote, adding: “Protect our institution by not playing games.” His notes also show the FBI “softened its interview strategy” with Flynn, giving him hints to refresh his memory of his conversations, the Times reports. Nevertheless, Flynn “lied repeatedly, and prosecutors have said that agents gave him ‘multiple opportunities to correct his false statements by revisiting key questions.'”

This isn’t going away anytime soon. That’s why it’s important to realize that the Democrats’ spin will intensify. The simple fix for the Democrats’ spin is to ask this simple question: Is it likely that the cabal that wanted to prevent a Trump administration, the cabal that impeached President Trump and tried to remove him from office, suddenly become public servants with integrity? Of course, they didn’t.
