Surber starts out, The impeachment we need, by quoting an amusing piece at the Babylon Bee:
Poll: Majority Want Impeachment Hearings To Continue As Long As Possible So Congress Will Be Too Busy To Meddle With Our Lives
He then moves to Ann Coulter, who laments that impeachment is preventing the Senate from doing all sorts of good and necessary things--infrastructure, fixing Obamacare, fixing our border crisis, and so forth.
Then Surber lays it out:
I agree with both, and disagree with both.
What we really need is for Congress to take a sober and unflinching review of Obama's Spygate, in which an American president used the FBI to spy on a political opponent. To get that power, the FBI lied 17 times to a federal judge. Not only that, but the FBI tried to entrap Donald John Trump's son and his son-in-law at Trump Tower in June 2016. Not only that but when Devin Nunes later informed the judge the FBI lied, she ignored it.
This is the constitutional crisis we need to address because if we fail to put in place strict penalties for using the FBI to spy, the next Democrat president will do even worse.
To be sure, John Durham is investigating but he's a Department of Justice lifer. He was supposed to start indicting in June. I am tired of waiting. I give up on him. He is the bus that will never arrive. I may as well start walking.
Watergate was amateur hour. Obama's Spygate is Big Brother done by professionals. I would like to say that they almost got away with it, but because there has been no public outcry, I must tell the truth.
They got away with it.
Powerful words, and not spoken recklessly. Unlike Surber, however, I haven't given up on Barr/Durham. As Surber says, the Russia Hoax was "Big Brother done by professionals," and Impeachment Theater is the continuation of the Russia Hoax through the Intel Community and the Legislative Branch (never mind what the Judicial Branch has been up to). It's the crime of the century, and you don't get to the bottom of that--which is where we need to get--in a few months. Progress is being made. As Lee Smith told Laura Ingraham last night, the plot is now clearly seen to have originated in the White House. That's real progress.
