Sean Davis: I Have a Weird Feeling of Deep State Deja Vu...

Didn't we just go through the exact same information-operation script?

An old adage holds that while history doesn't repeat itself, it rhymes. Not so in the case of the latest manufactured anti-Trump "scandal." The anonymous whistleblower’s allegations of corruption involving President Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelensky, appear to be a note-for-note reproduction of the discredited "dossier" of 2016.

The template for a coordinated media and intelligence community hit against the president was first perfected in the dossier. British ex-spook Christopher Steele compiled the bogus allegations at the behest of the Democrats. Yet it formed the basis for secret wiretaps, human informants and a sprawling, multi-year special-counsel probe of the president.

Liberals presented Steele as an operative with impeccable credentials and a deep network of Russian sources. His reports, we were told, set a gold standard for intelligence, so much so that the FBI regularly relied on his counsel. His claims found immediate purchase in the highest circles of American journalism -- until they were utterly debunked along with the whole "collusion" theory.

Sound familiar?

Let me also add this: Democrats have started demanding a Special Prosecutor and also demanding -- get this! -- that A.G. Barr recuse himself from overseeing that special prosecutor, because Donald Trump mentioned his name in a call.

Gee, that sure sounds familiar. Maybe they should rehire Rod Rosenstein to wear a wire, too?

Reporters, lawmakers and others who fell for the collusion hoax might blame naivete. But that ­excuse won’t work this time around, not when the remix sounds exactly the same as the original song. Those who go along with this charade the second time around -- be they in media, Congress or any of the intelligence and law-enforcement agencies implicated in the collusion hoax -- have no such alibi.

Below, some good stuff from Twitter.

Even Not-Binary Ben Shapiro sees through the con this time around:

And be sure to google Alexandra Chalupa to find out which convicted domestic terrorist she was working with when she was touring Ukraine sniffing out dirt for the DNC.

I find it interesting -- if inevitable -- that the NeverTrumpers are now on that guy's side.

One last thing: You know how a lot of people are saying that Erick Erickson's super-helpful-to-liberal twitter feed exists just so Erick Erickson can beg his way back to being a paid contributor on CNN?

He constantly defends CNN and CNN personnel, and often reminisces about the Good Old Days when people paid attention to his trifling yet saggardly ass.

And he attacks conservatives as coo-coo for cocoa puffs conspiracists, which is of course sweet music to CNN's ears:

Well, the Little Grifter Who Just Kept on Trying finally got a big ol' "W:"
