Oh. So THIS is how it all started.

When Pelosi said a while back that Trump will do the work for them (the House) perhaps this is what she meant.


Fresh Air: How A Political Hit Job Backfired, And Led To Trump's Impeachment Peril

Remember "Clinton Cash," the book that successfully helped hurt HRC's chances shortly before the election? Put together / written by Bannon and Peter Schweizer. Both guys funded by the Mercers (although Bannon's on his own these days.)

So it was tried again, only much earlier in the election cycle, this past spring with another book ... which discussed the Bidens.

Schweizer's skill as a writer is to tell the truth but make it all seem highly relevant and unsavory so that he doesn't have to actually allege anything. This allows the story to, as Coach Bannon describes the play, anchor left, pivot right.

Meaning, get it picked up by mainstream (credible) media but amplified to 11 by Fox and the rest. Mainstream media spends their time reporting on people talking about the FUD, thereby helping to increase the FUD by a lucky false equivalence here or there.

************************

It worked to an extent, until Trump began to "hoist with his own petard."

Its like they crafted the gun and Trump shot himself in the foot.

....but he shoots so aimlessly and with any weapon that it was bound to happen.

I missed this one from last week: It's the pharmaceutical industry that's probably at least "a little" behind this.
