The Democratic Party is filled with rampant hypocrisy

Adriana Cohen on

As the Senate impeachment trial unfolds, we're witnessing an alarming dual justice system where Democrats accuse the president and the Republican Party of criminal wrongdoing and foul play while giving themselves a pass for the very same acts of which they accuse others.

Take foreign interference in U.S. elections. Democrats have launched an impeachment charade against President Donald Trump stemming from a July 2019 phone he had with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy. Democrats allege that the president pressured Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a political rival, in exchange for U.S. aid. This accusation stands despite the transcript of the phone call released by the president showing that no quid pro quo or criminal acts took place. Zelenskiy, a fact witness, has also stated on numerous occasions there was "no pressure" by the president and that Trump did nothing wrong.

Those material facts continue to be dismissed by the left while a documented liar and conspiracy theorist Adam Schiff, D-Calif., Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and other Democrats continue to traffic a deceptive political narrative that the president of the United States committed crimes warranting his removal from office.

Meanwhile, Democrats -- and their partisan allies in media -- conveniently overlook high-ranking members of their own party doing virtually the same thing with zero accountability.

In May 2018, Sens. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., Bob Menendez, D-N.J., and Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., wrote a stern letter to Ukraine's prosecutor general demanding the Ukrainian government cooperate and assist with the special counsel investigation that was targeting President Trump and his former campaign manager Paul Manafort.

"That's a threat and that's the same kind of stuff they're accusing Trump of," Kentucky Senator Rand Paul said during a TV interview last October.

 

As you can see, Democrats are permitted to engage foreign nations and officials to help them in investigating a political rival -- and by doing so invite foreign interference in our elections -- but Trump can't do anything that even remotely resembles the same.

A double standard, no?

Then there's the Russian collusion hoax peddled by Schiff, the Democratic Party and complicit fake news media the past several years. Before Trump was even elected, the left spread vicious lies and conspiracy theories that Trump and his former campaign associates colluded with Russia to tilt the 2016 election. As such, Democrats succeeded in getting several congressional and DOJ investigations opened against the president -- including a 22-month special counsel investigation -- predicated on an "unverified and salacious" opposition research known as the dirty "dossier."

Now here's the kicker: The dossier that reportedly was used as the basis to go after the president and triggering multiple criminal investigations was concocted by Russian informants and an ex British spy -- paid for by Hillary Clinton and the DNC.
