Former Democratic Gov.: Democrats suffer from two “harmful delusions”

Former Nebraska Governor Bob Kerrey says Congressional Democrats should cease investigations into alleged collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia and instead look into how the Department of Justice got the Trump-Russia investigation “so wrong” in the first place, Newsmax reported.

Kerrey’s criticism: “Delusions fascinate me in part because I have so many of my own,” Bob Kerrey, a former Democratic Senator, wrote in an op-ed. “At the moment my fellow Democrats are suffering from two that are harmful.”

“The first is that Americans long for a president who will ask us to pay more for the pleasure of increasing the role of the federal government in our lives,” wrote Kerrey, referring to the Democrats’ embrace of contentious proposals like Medicare for All and the Green New Deal.

“The second Democratic delusion is that Americans were robbed of the truth when special prosecutor Robert Mueller and Attorney General William Barr concluded that President Trump did not collude with Russia in 2016,” Kerrey adds. “All evidence indicates that the full report will not change the conclusion that Donald J. Trump did not collude with Vladimir Putin to secure his victory in 2016.

“Rather than investigating the president further, Congress needs to investigate how the Department of Justice got this one so wrong. If the president of the United States is vulnerable to prosecutorial abuse, then God help all the rest of us.”
