The Washington Post: Trump Has Launched an "All-Out War" Against... the Democrat Congress Which Has Launched Over 20 Investigations In Order to Derail His Presidency

Clown world.

"TRUMP'S ALL-OUT WAR AGAINST HOUSE PROBES"

That's the headline of a Washington Post story (print edition) about the clash between the White House and House Democrats over the latters' investigations of the former. The article notes that President Trump "is blocking more than 20 separate Democratic inquiries." According to the Post, this "amount[s] to what many experts call the most expansive White House obstruction effort in decades."

The Post's claim of obstruction is dishonest in at least some cases. It says that William Barr "has blocked Justice Department official John Gore from appearing for subpoenaed testimony on the addition of a citizenship question on the 2020 Census." The Post neglects to inform its readers that the administration is fine with having Gore testify, insisting only that he have a lawyer with him, a condition Democrats have rejected.

Moreover, the Post has the big picture backwards. It is House Democrats, having launched more than 20 separate investigations of the president, including many relating to his personal and business affairs (and those of family members), who are waging "all-out war" against Trump. They are engaged in the most expansive harassment campaign against a president in decades, and probably ever.

...

[A]t some point any self-respecting White House will conclude that the House is acting in bad faith. At that point, the pattern of harassment will be countered by a pattern of resistance.

That's what has happened here. The Democrats' all-out war on Trump has resulted in an all-out defensive war by the president.

The Post doesn't consider that this might be the case.

We are real news, Mr. President.

Meanwhile, House socialist radicals are threatening to block the payment of salaries to government workers who don't show up for their kangaroo courts.

Say, remember all the shrieking about shutting down the government? Think the #FakeNews media will similarly chastise Democrats for shutting it down now?
