Adam Mill (a pseudonym) explains to readers at The Federalist that, if the best Never Trumpers and Democrats can do are the flawed investigations into the President, he’ll win his second term in 2020 handily. He writes (abridged):
In spite of a seemingly unstoppable alliance among the media, the House of Representatives, a network of sympathetic judges, embedded bureaucrats, and Never-Trumper Republicans, the left appears destined to surgically extract defeat from the wide-open jaws of victory. Bombshell after bombshell fizzled.
2019 is shaping up to be a horrible year for the Democrats, and the hits just keep coming. Let’s take a closer look at the bad news for Democrats.
We have new interviews—actually confessions—from former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe, in which he admits he opened the Russia investigation to protect his job. These interviews further demonstrate that, even now, this sanctimonious mutineer has no proof of Russia collusion despite having the most powerful law enforcement.
Food stamp participation is down. Fewer workers are claiming disability instead of working. Throughout the state of the union address, members of Congress displayed their true feelings by scowling at the news of Americans doing better without government help.
All of this is terrible news for politicians who campaign on “saving” people with government programs. If you want to know the real reason liberals hate Trump, you need only remember that leftism depends on dependency. Meanwhile, in the socialist paradise of Venezuela, the government would rather burn food from outside donors than allow it to reach starving people.
David Brooks said it eloquently in his surrender opinion editorial: “the anti-Trump movement is a failure…. We have persuaded no one…. We have not hindered him…. We have not dislodged him…. We have not contained him.” The Nation retorted, “Never Trumpers Never Mattered.”
That must sting for the Never Trumpers craving liberal fawning. Every month that goes by in the Trump administration, another month slips into the history books forever beyond the reach of those who would “stop” Trump. The president is now 25 months into a 48-month administration and the self-righteous establishment Republicans have nothing to show for their devil’s bargain to help reverse the 2016 election.
Nobody buys it when liberals point out that the opposition to Trump is “bipartisan.” As an example, in spite of the frequent references to the Republican pedigrees of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Special Counsel Robert Mueller (whom Rosenstein supervises), and McCabe (who pressured Rosenstein to appoint the special counsel), the American public widely and correctly assesses the Mueller probe to be politically motivated.
If this is what the rest of 2019 is going to be like, Trump’s going to come out on top.
