Andrew McCarthy was recently being interviewed about the latest pseudoscandal du jour, featuring President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and allegations that he may have been involved in trying to set up “back channel communications” between the Russians and the incoming administration. Which even if it turns out to be 100% true is neither unusual nor is it a crime. He pointed out that by taking this tangent the dinosaur media and the impeachment hit squads are inadvertently destroying their whole “Russian collusion” nonsense narrative. Because if the Russians were already in cahoots with the Trump team to influence the election, and we still haven’t found any evidence of how they were communicating, then obviously there already were back-channel communications going on (and some pretty damned good ones too). Therefore, there’s no reason they would have wanted to try to set up such communications with Kushner. In other words, they can’t have it both ways.
Boom. Logic for the win.
I’m debating whether or not to declare check mate on this. Leaning towards no because this is too minor a detail to really get through to people, despite that from a logical standpoint this is the fatal flaw that ought to bring the whole house of cards crashing down. Sadly, logic alone is seldom enough to convince people these days. So for now I’m going to take it as a good sign–they’re so desperate that they’re making even stupider mistakes than usual.
