The media’s Russia hysteria is reaching a fever pitch.
They are still flailing about without any evidence of wrongdoing.
And Trey Gowdy just made a startling admission that revealed what the media is really up to.
The so-called “mainstream” media, Democrats and the FBI have been investigating Russian “collusion” for a year.
And all they have turned up is one meeting between a Russian lawyer and Donald Trump, Jr. where the primary topic was Russian adoption.
So they are moving the goalposts from collusion to “willingness to collude.”
The story was a big zero in terms of producing evidence of a crime, but it allowed the press to generate three days of news cycles to throw Donald Trump off stride after he returned home from his successful trip to Europe.
Trey Gowdy was speaking to the press and he aired his frustrations with the Russia investigation.
The Weekly Standard reports:
Gowdy, frustration evident, suggested the Russia matter has become a distraction for Hill Republicans.
“I don’t want to talk about it at all,” he admitted.
“There is a political component to it, which is: Here you are in mid-July asking me about Russia, and it’s not your fault that you’re doing it, but that’s how another week is starting here, so that’s a political concern,” he said. “You’re not here to ask me about infrastructure or tax reform or anything about that.”
In this context, the Russia investigation is a success for the media.
It has created a cloud of doubt over the Trump administration that has the GOP tied up in knots.
Trump stormed into office on the platform of undoing Obama’s agenda.
And he has succeeded in rolling back regulations and dismantling his job-killing global warming policies.
But those were actions he could take on his own.
In order to repeal Obamacare and cut taxes, he needs the help of Congressional Republicans.
And they panic over every Russia story.
Republicans in Congress constantly take the media bait that every new revelation is a supposed “bombshell” that is one step closer to discovering evidence of collusion.
No evidence of collusion exists.
And no one has been accused of a crime.
But that hasn’t stopped the anti-Trump media from beating the drum on this story for the past 12 months.
Trey Gowdy got right to the heart of the matter.
This is a distraction that is keeping Republicans from enacting the agenda the American people elected them to put into place.
