During the official House Intelligence Committee grilling of FBI Director James Comey today, the Democrat questions were often intended to put words in the mouth of Mr. Comey and make it sound like the Director agreed with their charges and allegations against President Trump, leaving the false impression that those speculative, partisan charges are part of the evidence that the FBI has collected.
The Democrats led Mr. Comey into an extended discussion as to whether Vladimir Putin liked or disliked Trump or Hillary more, and whether or not Putin tried to help either of the former presidential candidates get elected in the latest presidential election. With all the leftist hate-talk about Russia (a nation American liberals loved when it was called the Soviet Union) they seem to forget that tell-tale markers left behind by hackers are often intentionally misleading and that we have equal or greater enemies in the world like China and North Korea to worry about. But the designated subject for Democrats is Russia helping Trump get elected, and they will not be persuaded to look anywhere else. Once Democrats establish a lie, they stick with it.
The planting of thoughts and the subliminal suggestion of guilt was also part of the Democrat playbook during the hearings. During one Democrat’s questioning of Mr. Comey, he prefaced his diatribe by assuring the Director that he understood that he, Comey, could not comment pro or con about the investigation, and then, instead of asking Mr. Comey a question, he began a series of anti-Trump charges that liberals viewing the hearings are expected to assume are true, and that Mr. Comey is in agreement with, based on his adherence to silence as the series of dubious accusations was made. This is how liberal voters get their information: via the planting of false information, and just plain lies.
