Democrats’ New McCarthyism – Accusing Trump of Russia Ties without Any Evidence
There are transcripts that provide very helpful, very critical insights into whether or not Russian intelligence and senior Russian political leaders, including Vladimir Putin were cooperating, with colluding with the Trump campaign at the highest levels to influence the outcome of our election. — Senator Chris Coon
This past week Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) uttered those words while appearing on MSNBC with Andrea Mitchell. Mitchell followed up by pressing Coons for proof of his accusations, to which Coons replied that he had none.
Nevertheless, Mitchell didn’t proceed to excoriate the Senator for hurling such wild and unsubstantiated claims but simply let the moment pass and Coons’ commentary be left hanging in the media nether.
Thankfully, Chris Wallace at Fox News is not nearly as gutless, and he took the Senator to task for his dangerous comments on Fox News SUNDAY.......To Read More....
My Take - Two things. First, Chris Wallace did his job the way it should be done, which shows even a blind monkey can find a coconut. Secondly, I hate it when they use the McCarthy metaphor. McCarthy was right, and even then there was evidence communists had taken over key positions in FDR's government and effected policy that was beneficial to Stalin. All shown to be true in 1975 when the Venona Intercepts were released. Information both Truman and Eisenhower had to know when they were in the White House - both of whom condemned McCarthy. At least the author called McCarthy an "erstwhile warrior against communism", so he must have read a real history book or two. MeCarthy had lots of issues, but being wrong in this case wasn't one of them.
