The Democrats and Their Narrative

Posted on | December 9, 2019 | 1 Comment

Watching the impeachment hearings this morning — Democrat lawyer Daniel Goldman is “testifying,” which is to say lecturing, uninterrupted by questions — one gathers the impression that Democrats believe (a) nothing Hunter Biden did in Ukraine was wrong, (b) it was perfectly OK for Ukraine to “meddle” in the 2016 U.S. election, and (c) it was therefore wrong for President Trump to urge Ukraine to investigate corruption.

The argument Goldman is making is that Trump (and his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani) wanted Ukraine to do something that would be politically beneficial to the president’s 2020 re-election campaign — and, according to Democrats, anything that is good for Republicans is inherently wrong.

It is important to Democrats that they keep repeating this narrative of how wrong it would be to investigate Burisma (and Alexandra Chalupa, etc.) because they can’t give the American people a minute’s peace in which to think about all of this and to say in reply, “So what?”
