David and Alexandra break down the Senate Intelligence Committee’s document dump on Russia, then they discuss Israel’s conflict with Hamas, and finally end up with a discussion of how the #MeToo movement is robbing the Left of moral authority.

    1. “Problematic” does not imply “illegal”. 
    2. Attempted collusion is not a crime just as attempted jaywalking is not jaywalking if you don’t cross the street.
    3. What was the criminal activity at the heart of the alleged criminal conspiracy? “Improper” does not connote “illegal”.
    4. Worst case: Impeach Donald Trump, Jr. Oh, wait… 
    5. How is it okay for the Hillary campaign, the FBI and DOJ to actually accept anti-Trump material from a foreign power (UK) and go so far as to present it to the FISA court, but wrong for DJT, Jr to talk about receiving material?

    How proud we must be that the FBI is splitting hairs to find something to implicate Trump!

    The gormless Joe Clark, Canada’s Prime Minister back in 1979, tried to move Canada’s Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. To say the reaction of the “Arab street” nonplused the GWN PM would be diplomatic.

    It isn’t just the Left getting the Gaza situation wrong. Just listen to the NRO Editors podcast. They were frustratingly obtuse in terms of seeing the obvious. I really wonder if at some level anti-Israel feelings are a part of many who consider themselves non-aligned or objective.

    Hit it on the head! I loved when he said “if you don’t think this is collusion you’re setting the bar high for collusion”, and yet he never mentioned Hillary actually colluding, so in that case I guess “the collusion bar” just got set to a new Olympic record height. These jamokes have gotten hypocrisy to be acceptable when making a point or narrative that was determined by them far in advance of the facts.

    So now it’s okay to lower standards? Oh, the irony Mr. French (and I like David French, but this line riled me after a year of being scolded and tut-tutted for lowering my standards)

    I want a high bar for collusion because I want to see actual quid pro quo because impeachment and process is at stake. I want to see the Kremlin signing off on a plan to change votes. I want continued coordination between campaign and Russia on messaging or activities. I want the hold the Left to the accusations they set, and I want them proven or I want to move on with my life instead of hedging and school-marming untoward behavior to try and give a semblance of circumstantial proof.

    David and Alexandra: Now do Clinton, Obama, the FBI and the Russians. Plenty of smoke there too.
