20 House Democrats request removal of Devin Nunes from Russia investigation
The idea that Democrats are trying to rescue the House from too much partisanship is, of course, absurd. There is still no proof behind the allegations the Trump campaign colluded with Russian hackers, an allegation which is once again trotted out in this letter. The allegation itself has become a means to an end: to keep the attack on the administration going and collect as many Republican scalps along the way as possible. “This is about country, not party,” would sound less like a laugh line if Democrats would stop using these accusations as a cudgel against Republicans in the media. Instead, we have House Democrats continually talking up collusion and even impeachment in advance of any proof.
When Democrats bleat that it's about country, not party, you can bet that it's about their party not the country. They're in bad trouble and they know it. Spying on your political opponents has been a crime since before Watergate.
