Monday on MSNBC’s The 11th Hour, former lead strategist for Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign James Carville claimed that the investigations into President Trump, including those by the Manhattan district attorney, the New York State Attorney General and the Southern District of New York, could not be stopped.
Asked how he felt about “the natural temptation to launch a bunch of investigations?” Carville replied, “Well, that’s the question is, first of all, you can’t stop the Manhattan D. A.. You can’t stop the New York Attorney General. You can’t stop the Southern District of New York. Bill Barr couldn’t stop the Southern District of New York from indicting Steve Bannon. So just the momentum that is out there with these investigations now that I don’t think they can stop.”
He added, “President-elect Biden has indicated some reluctance about this, but he said he’d get the Justice Department — the attorney general prior to this administration a pretty free hand. I don’t know politically the outcome of this, but I think this train is leaving the station. I think these investigations are vigorous and serious. And I think that Trump knows that. I don’t think it can be stopped, Brian, I really don’t.”
First, Joe Biden is not the President-elect. Second, the investigations won’t be stopped not because they can’t be, but because the Democrats won’t stop them. They have spent the last four years obsessing over investigating Trump (and coming away empty-handed) and they will never stop because they want to keep up the pressure on the President and his administration. They also want to keep him under a cloud of suspicion and accusation to try to damage him politically. They know it’s a false narrative, but it’s part and parcel of their politics of personal destruction.
