Dems distressed about midterms reportedly worry Jan 6 leaks to press are backfiring

The past several weeks have seen more than a few claims issuing forth from the ridiculous, unabashedly partisan January 6th Committee. These seem to have been leaked with very specific intent to the press and various New York Times writers, the hope being that these leaks will be spun in such a way as to distract people from the Democratic Party’s coming mid-term train wreck.

There was, for instance, the so-called “Trump phone call gap,” which appeared a few weeks back. This was supposed to show that there were inexplicable gaps in the telephone logs on January 6th, 2021. The implication, of course, was that the White House had altered the phone logs, and that the devious former president was using a burner phone during the time in question—like he was some sort of petty drug dealer. That story, naturally, which was false to begin with, has since quietly disappeared.

More recently was the Kevin McCarthy “bombshell,” which allegedly shows the House Minority Leader so shocked by the events of January 6th that he called upon the president to resign. McCarthy and Trump have both nixed that story.

Now comes a fascinating Axios report, which suggests that the Democrats are having some buyer’s remorse about the January 6th Committee, and are realizing that the incessant leaks have undercut all the drama, suspense, and, frankly, public interest that the committee was hoping for.

According to the report, “[t]he public now has an incomplete picture of the committee’s closed-door work through a combination of court filings and leaks of thousands of documents and private conversations,” and these leaks have “undercut what Axios has learned was a committee goal: building drama, mystery—and widespread public interest—ahead of hearings slated for June and the release of its report later this summer.”

The committee is also apparently fretting over information being made public “without context.” Even worse for the committee, the multiplying disasters occurring on Biden’s watch—including skyrocketing inflation, border chaos, worsening crime, and a deteriorating international situation—have understandably caused the country to lose interest in the matter.

From the report: “Committee members and their staff are growing anxious about the torrent of leaks. They fear they’ll breed complacency in a country already distracted by inflation, Ukraine and the lingering coronavirus pandemic…[a] related concern: regaining public interest now that former President Trump and his red-hot rhetoric are no longer daily fixtures in their lives.”

Best of all, sources tell Axios that “Democrats on the Hill are getting flashbacks to the Mueller investigation.”

“People anticipated a political bombshell but ended up with what was deemed, ‘The Blockbuster That Wasn’t.’ Enough was leaked and released piecemeal over the two-year investigation the public had already processed most of its significant findings during dozens of separate news cycles,” the outlet reported.

After years of “bombshells,” of “walls closing in,” of “Russia collusion” and endless fairy tales spun by desperate Democratic operatives, it’s no surprise that the American people have lost interest in this latest attempt to impugn the former president. Unfortunately for the clueless Democrats, it seems their latest, obsessive anti-Trump witch hunt is set to end as absurdly and pathetically as the Mueller fiasco did.
