The further to the left or the right you move, the more your lens on life distorts.

Joseph diGenova and Victoria Toensing develop an interested analogy when they argue that Donald Trump is the Alfred Dreyfus of the 21st century. They write:
The time for an accounting has arrived for former senior members of the FBI and Intelligence Community. They aided and abetted in propagating a false narrative about the Trump campaign colluding with Russians, accused the President of the United States of being a “traitor,” and misled the American people. They made Donald J. Trump the Alfred Dreyfus of the 21st century: a completely innocent man, framed by his own government because of who he was (Dreyfus, a Jew, was the victim of French anti-Semitism [Trump, who is bombastic, sometimes crass, and often unpresidential was the victim of this smear because the establishment didn't like his style or his low opinion of them]) and not what he did.

Dreyfus was framed of spying for the Germans based on a forged document. Trump was framed by a fraudulent dossier.

Worse, the [Trump] framing was done as a distraction to cover up for those who weaponized our law enforcement and intelligence tools against a political opponent. President Trump deserves an apology from them all.
It's the last sentence that is the one that matters. Either the Dems are so driven by irrational hatred of this president that they truly do believe their own bullshit (I've used the word "chasing" in previous posts). Or they're so frightened by the prospect that the inverse investigation (you know, the one that may lead to AG William Barr uncovering a soft coup attempt initiated by more than a few Obama era officials and agencies that weaponized against Trump in the waining year of the previous administration) that they're will do anything to keep a friendly and compliant media busy with specious claims of "obstruction" (for a crime that never occurred).

My guess is the latter. Not every Democrat is stupid or deranged, and that means that at least some of them recognize that the evidence, the Mueller Report, and good ol' common sense indicates that Trump did not do the crime. But that doesn't matter. If the inverse investigation exposes the scandal of a soft coup attempt, if it implicates Hillary Clinton and gets too close to Barack Obama, if it exposes Clapper and Brennan, Comey or McCabe for the partisan liars that they are, the Dems will lose, and lose badly in the 2020 election. That can't be allowed to happen.

So the circus must go on, and on, and on until the clock runs out and the Dems control the White House, the House, and the Senate. Then the soft coup scandal disappears, just like it was supposed to do when Hillary won the election. But she didn't, and that's why Trump is Dreyfus, and the Dems, despite all of their obnoxious bluster, are running scared.
