The Morning Briefing: Dems Bring a Schiff to a Truth Fight and Robert Hur Breaks Them

News & Politics

Top O’ the Briefing

Happy Wednesday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Yermigan’s “alternative uses” for his immersion blender were catching the eyes of both local artists and local law enforcement. 


Congressional Democrats and their enablers in the Executive Branch haven’t quite figured out that their totalitarian fantasies haven’t yet come to reality. They are under the impression that they and their agitprop minions in the mainstream media can sell any manner of fiction to the American public. They’ve had a lot of success, to be sure, but they are still at least eight months away from getting their Soviet jollies.

It was this lack of a grasp on reality that led them to believe that they might be able to turn Special Counsel Robert Hur’s Tuesday appearance on Capitol Hill to their advantage. 

Yeah, about that. 

This is from Matt’s post about the hearing:

Democrats had basically two objectives on Tuesday: create the impression that the Hur report exonerated Joe Biden, and repair the damage done by his assessment of Joe Biden’s poor memory.

Well, they failed at both objectives. Special Counsel Hur explicitly said that his report was not an exoneration of Joe Biden. As for the issue of Joe Biden’s memory… they didn’t do any better. In fact, anyone who reads the transcript will see just how bad Biden’s memory was while he was answering questions. Is the average American going to read the transcript of Joe Biden’s interview with Special Counsel Robert Hur? Not a chance. So, what are the Democrats and their allies in the media going to do? Just make stuff up about what the transcript actually says.


It’s true, they did make up a lot of stuff, but Hur was too good to let any of it stick. 

They wanted to be crafty about creating a false narrative, but they had Adam Schiff running point for the effort. Any time that Schiff isn’t talking to a friendly, he embarrasses himself. He’s too stupid to know that he’s embarrassing himself, of course, so he never stops doing it. 

Over at Townhall, my colleague Madeline Leesman chronicles the exchange between Schiff and Hur. The gist of it is that Schiff takes extreme umbrage with the fact that Hur accurately described the Joe Biden that we all see every time he’s on camera. Schiff rails against the “political” nature of Hur’s conclusions, which is the mother of all projections. Throughout it all, Hur remains unflappable, while Schiff flails and gets increasingly condescending. 

From Madeline’s post:

“You were not born yesterday; you understood exactly what you were doing,” Schiff continued.

“What you are suggesting is I shape, sanitize, omit portions of my reasoning and explanation to the attorney general for political reasons,” Hur responded before Schiff’s time ran out.

The Democrats were under the impression that everyone in the Department of Justice was a political tool to be used as they needed. Hur killed that vibe for them. That’s the true source of the anger of Schiff and his colleagues. Oh, they’re plenty mad about Hur’s forthright description of the greatly diminished state of Biden’s memory too. They need all the help that they can get selling him as fully functional to the electorate, after all. 


The Democrats wanted Hur to be a good little DOJ soldier and declare Biden innocent of any wrongdoing in his handling of classified documents. They really needed that after all of their grandstanding about Trump and his document situation. His conclusion that Biden is too much of a doddering, demented trainwreck to be held accountable for his actions really threw a wrench into the Democratic narrative machinery. 

Given the current state of the Department of Justice, Hur’s honesty definitely made him a rogue operative. He resigned from the DOJ on Monday, most likely as persona non grata. Heck, he’s probably on a goon squad watch list by now. 

The Democrats’ foot-stomping and spinning (Sister Toldjah has more on that at RedState) don’t change the fact that, with every public appearance, Joe Biden makes it plain to see that Hur’s assessment of him was correct. 

As the old saying goes, the truth hurts. Especially if you’re a Democrat.

WSJ: Islamic Terrorists ‘Posing as Refugees’ Are Invading Europe

“Islamic terrorists are no strangers to scamming the immigration game, both legally and illegally. That’s how the 9/11 attacks happened. A lot of it started in Europe, where England and Germany were letting people in from suspect parts of the world with open arms. History is once again asserting its right to repeat itself when people refuse to learn.”
