Democratic Congressman has the perfect way to sort out Trump’s problems with wandering bands of Witch Hunters – in fact he had it back in 2014.
Democrats and Republicans have been clashing over what to do about the overabundance of witch hunters that have taken Washington D.C. by storm since Trump’s inauguration in 2017. Trump has been so concerned that he seems unable to perform the functions of the office of the presidency, mired as he is in the tentacles of Twitter where he tweets incessantly about witch hunters.
Have no fear, a solution is here, albeit one dating back to the infamous Benghazi witch hunts. And we might as well lay this out there before we go any further – no there is no real similarity between the Benghazi witch hunts and the one currently being hosted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
As CNN recently reported, Democrats make the convincing argument that “the two probes are night and day.”
Benghazi was a congressional investigation designed to harm Hillary Clinton’s campaign, they say, while Mueller has already landed indictments and guilty pleas from several senior members of the Trump campaign.
“There have already been five guilty pleas… one person’s already been sentenced,’ said Rep. Jamie Raskin, a Maryland Democrat. “You can compare that to the Ken Starr Whitewater investigation, which lasted four years and produced nothing, or the seven congressional committees that went after the Benghazi holy grail and came back with nothing, including our beloved Mr. Gowdy.”
Anyway, returning to topic at hand, Rep. Tony Cardenas (D-CA) came up with the perfect solution to witch hunts while serving as a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform back in 2014 when he called on then committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) to install an above ground pool in room 2154 of the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington to assist with hunting for witches associated with the Benghazi tragedy.
Cardenas called for the pool to avoid the partisan battles surrounding the Benghazi inquiry – a problem repeating itself during the Russia witch hunts.
“Voting by members has reached the limit of its usefulness,” Cardenas wrote at the time, adding that: “We are picking winners and losers, when it is clearly obvious that witches can only be found by dunking them in water. If they float they’re a witch. If they don’t, installing a pool will allow us to retrieve the non-witch before he or she drowns. Like the Chairman, I am interested in effective government oversight and reform. This pool will allow that to take place, wasting far fewer taxpayer dollars in the process.”
Continuing, Cardenas suggested that the new pool will be dubbed the “Senator Joseph R. McCarthy Memorial Truth Pond” complete with a plaque to be installed on the exterior bearing the famous words of former head counsel for the United States Army, Joseph N. Welch, who asked McCarthy, “Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?”
Cardenas concluded his epic trolling suggesting that to avoid excessive government waste, the pool would be made available for staff and member recreation when committee “hearings” were not in session.
