Byron York: ‘It’s not about collusion anymore’

In the wake of the James Comey testimony before the U.S. Senate last week, President Trump opponents, particularly the leftists in the Democratic Party, has changed their tone and attacks. In a new post Chief Political Correspondent for the Washington Examiner, Byron York, says “It’s not about collusion anymore.”

“Fired FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee marked the full shift of the Trump-Russia investigation from a probe dedicated to discovering collusion to a probe dedicated to proving the president obstructed justice,” York writes in his new article titled “Five notes on Trump’s current predicament.”

“Democrats at the Comey hearing barely touched on collusion, which appears to have turned out to be a dry hole. When it did come up in Comey’s appearance, it was during questioning from Republicans, who wanted to highlight their point that collusion — the core of the case and the reason everybody got so excited in the first place — has so far turned out to be nothing.”

Comey refuted the collusion rumors, particularly those in a NY Times article from February and reaffirmed that Trump was not and is not under investigation.

The Global Dispatch spoke with several Clinton voters, Democrats and liberals and can confirm York’s next statement as 100% true: “To Democrats, that no longer matters. Now, it’s all about obstruction of justice, or alleged obstruction of justice, or fantasized obstruction of justice, depending on your partisan perspective.”

York echoes the sentiment of liberals who “hate” Trump: “it seems safe to predict that special counsel Robert Mueller will investigate Trump for obstruction. So it is a new game, even if Republicans keep trying to play the old one.”

To Democrat voters, there is enough to impeach Trump and now it should be the focus of the 2018 election.

“…Democrats do not need any more information than what is already publicly known to pursue impeachment proceedings against the president,” York writes. “What they need is 218 votes in the House of Representatives. If they had majority control of the House now, they would already be pursuing impeachment.”

York then accurately summarizes and recalls this similar angst against President Bush leading up to 2006 and how Nancy Pelosi pulled impeachment off of the table. The failed campaign messaging of impeachment could hinder a 2018 landslide in the House.

“Democrats do not need any more information than what is already publicly known to pursue impeachment proceedings against the president. What they need is 218 votes in the House of Representatives. If they had majority control of the House now, they would already be pursuing impeachment.”
