Conservative author and broadcaster Mark Steyn was on the Tucker Carlson show this week and was asked for his thoughts on the Democratic Party’s current obsession with Russia. Steyn explained it quite simply suggesting that Democrats can’t accept the fact that they lost the election. It’s easier for them to believe it was stolen from them.

From the FOX News Insider:

Steyn: Dems Turned Putin Into ‘Bond Villain’ With ‘Drumbeat’ Against Russia

Author and commentator Mark Steyn said Democrats in Congress effectively made Russian President Vladimir Putin a “Bond villain” by continuing to accuse them of interference and spying.

“The Democrats turned Putin into a Bond villain: the man with the spider’s touch,” he said, using a line from 1964’s “Goldfinger” theme to recount the way Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) described Putin on Monday,

“They want to believe that they didn’t lose the election… that someone stole it from them,” Steyn said, calling their drumbeat against Russia “nuts.”

He said that the federal investigation into Russia’s actions is akin to doing Putin’s bidding, by appearing to undermine an American president “more than having some cabinet secretary in [Putin’s] pocket would.”

The Democrats’ use of Russia panic has become such a catch-all excuse that it’s now being used as a ploy to delay Trump appointments. The Hill reports:

Warren: Delay Gorsuch vote because of Russia investigation

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) called for a delay Tuesday of Judge Neil Gorsuch’s Supreme Court confirmation vote, citing the FBI investigation into potential ties between President Trump’s campaign and Russia.

As the Senate Judiciary Committee continued its hearing on Gorsuch’s confirmation, the Democratic senator sent a flurry of tweets to say the Russian investigation should take priority…

Warren joins a growing number of prominent Democrats, including House Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez, who say the ongoing Kremlin investigation means that Gorsuch’s confirmation vote should be put on hold.

They’ve got nothing else.
