Hart: Keeping up with the Ukrainians new D.C. parlor game

Planting CIA operatives in the Trump campaign (an "insurance policy" as Peter Strzok called it) was an epic failed attempt to get rid of Trump via the Russian hoax. But the Dems are still manufacturing crimes. Led by head weasel Adam "Shifty" Schiff, the Dems are trying to use third-hand knowledge of another supposed "crime."

The "do-nothing Democrats" now open House sessions with a call to order and a prayer, followed by an investigation. They leak parts of their inquiries, and then CNN breathlessly runs with them as if they are facts. They cannot beat Trump in a fair election, so they try to undermine him by "death from a thousand paper cuts."

After the left's dishonesty in the Russian investigation, the Kavanaugh hearing, Trump's "obstruction of justice" for a crime he never committed, and the Democrat-funded Steele dossier that allowed the DOJ and FBI to obtain dubious FISA court warrants, average Americans should see through their deep state games.

Now Schiff, the little Schiff-head, says this "whistleblower" he conjured up wants to testify in secret because he is scared. It can mean only one thing: He also has dirt on the Clintons.

Shifty Schiff is running a sham investigation, based on an account by a political partisan's "concern" about what Trump said on the Ukrainian call. My reaction when I first heard about the call was, Ukraine has workable phone service?

This is different from the Bill Clinton impeachment. Trump is getting impeached for opening his mouth. In the Clinton White House, "whistleblower" meant something entirely different.

It was more fun when Trump was a Russian agent sleeping with Playmates and porn stars and keeping them quiet with hush money. Now we are down to a conversation Trump had with the Ukrainian president and being "concerned" about it. Dipping into the same corrupt ATM for U.S. politicians, "Quid Pro Joe" Biden, with Obama's backing, threatened to fire a prosecutor who was looking into his jake-legged son's energy company. Remember when Obama told the Russian president on a hot mic to tell Vlad he'd have "more flexibility after his [second] election"? For what? Something so bad he could not do it in his first term?

Dems live in the past. They loved taking Nixon down, and they have trotted out Woodward and Bernstein to say this is worse than Watergate. It is like the '70s; I cannot wait to see what Johnny Carson has to say about it in tonight's monologue.

Now with the Ukraine thing they are going after Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, too. Next we might get Giuliani and Trump on something, perhaps getting a whistleblower to say that their hair comb-overs are technically cover-ups.

What the Dems are doing with this inquiry is playing their own game by their own rules. They seem to just be sitting there and rolling the dice at the craps table until they get what they want. It's not how it should work.

Heads up, Dems: What you don't kill, you make stronger. America sent Trump to Washington to upset the status quo, drain the swamp and change business as usual in that corrupt culture. Dems don't like their honey hole, taxpayer funds, to be disrupted, so they hate Trump - and yet America cheers him.

The media and Hollywood leftist elites actively cheer this impeachment farce along. Michael Moore said he'd go on a hunger strike until Trump is impeached. Doctors have given him 25 years to live.

Hunter Biden had no natural gas experience other than once eating at a Taco Bell. But he got a $600k-a-year seat on the board of a Ukrainian energy company threatened by a prosecutor his dad had fired. "Quid Pro Joe" Biden addressed it as all skilled politicians would, essentially saying, "We've done nothing wrong and promise never to do it again."
