The Democratic Party and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media are once again treating us to their impersonation of Chicken Little.
THE SKY IS FALLING! THE SKY IS FALLING!

President Trump said he would be willing to listen to foreign governments if they approached him with information on a political rival.
Trump made the admission during an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, adding that he would not necessarily contact the FBI if such an approach was made. Video from the interview went public Wednesday evening.
“I think I’d want to hear it… I think you might want to listen, there isn’t anything wrong with listening,” he said.
“If somebody called from a country, Norway, [and said] ‘we have information on your opponent’ — oh, I think I’d want to hear it.”
The president continued in the interview: “Somebody comes up and says, ‘hey, I have information on your opponent,’ do you call the FBI?
“I’ll tell you what, I’ve seen a lot of things over my life. I don’t think in my whole life I’ve ever called the FBI. In my whole life. You don’t call the FBI. You throw somebody out of your office, you do whatever you do.”
When pressed on the issue by Stephanopoulos, Trump responded: “Oh, give me a break — life doesn’t work that way.”
Many Democrats reacted with outrage. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., a 2020 candidate for president, tweeted in response: “It’s time for Congress to begin impeachment hearings.”
The role of Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., in organizing a 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer offering negative information on Hillary Clinton was a focus of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian meddling in the last presidential campaign.
Mueller painstakingly documented Russian efforts to boost Trump’s campaign and undermine Clinton’s. It did not establish a criminal conspiracy between Russia and Trump’s campaign.
Trump repeatedly praised WikiLeaks in 2016 and celebrated information exposed by Russian hackers.
Trump’s comments came just a month after he pledged not to use information stolen by foreign adversaries in his 2020 re-election campaign.
During a question-and-answer session with reporters in the Oval Office last month, Trump said he “would certainly agree to” that commitment.
“I don’t need it,” he said as he met with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. “All I need is the opponents that I’m looking at.”
FBI Director Christopher Wray told lawmakers that Donald Trump Jr. should have called his agency to report the offer.
However, Trump, who nominated Wray to the role in 2017, told ABC News he disagreed. “The FBI director is wrong,” the president said.
Asked whether his advisers should accept information on an opponent from Russia, China or another nation or call the FBI this time, Trump said, “I think maybe you do both,” expressing openness to reviewing the information.
President Trump certainly enjoys “yanking the chains” of the perpetually aggrieved Democrats, doesn’t he?
If you read what he said closely, you will see that he never says that he would act upon information given to him about a political opponent by a foreign power.
He simply says that he would like to hear it.
I cracked up when he told Clintonista George Stephanopolous that “life doesn’t work that way” because the president is exactly right…it doesn’t.
When you get an e-mail from an African Prince stating that he is holding millions of dollars meant for you and to receive it all you have to do is give him your personal information including credit card numbers and back account information, do you call the authorities?
Because you read it and figured out that it was a bunch of hogwash all by yourself with no one else’s involvement necessary.
That it what Trump was saying.
Also, if you read the Trump’s last statement in the above article, he states that he thinks that his advisers should accept information about a Trump opponent from a foreign country AND call the FBI.
However, I guarantee you that it not what the impeachment-hungry Democrats heard.
They heard an impeachable offense…even though it isn’t one.
I believe that the president is purposefully keeping the Democratic Politicians running around like Chicken Little screaming for his impeachment.
The Democrats have devolved into a bunch of Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, running around willy-nilly yelling “Off with his head”!
They are not getting anything accomplished by continuing to push for Trump’s impeachment except their own defeat in the 2020 Presidential Election.
The Democrats hyperbolic daily display of Trump Derangement Syndrome, may play well on the coasts. but Americans living in the Heartland are fed up with them wasting taxpayers’ money while attempting to reinvestigate the Mueller Report simply because they are upset that Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who worked with Hillary Clinton, let them down.
The Democrats are so blinded by hateful rage that they do not realize that President Trump is using their animosity toward him to make them react to every innocent remark he makes, further deepening the hole which they have dug for themselves with the voting public.
President Trump is extremely adroit and is simply following the old axiom,
If your enemy is busy digging a hole for himself…hand him a second shovel.
