The real reason the Democrats are obsessed with Putin and Russia is because they can’t just come out and admit that they lost the 2016 election. There has to be a bigger, more sinister reason for their failure.
Mark Steyn made the point well on the Tucker Carlson show last night.
From the FOX News Insider:
Steyn: Dems Turned Putin ‘Into a Bond Villain’ With Continued Allegations
Author and commentator Mark Steyn said Democrats in Congress effectively made Russian President Vladimir Putin a “Bond villain” by continuing to accuse them of interference and spying.
“The Democrats turned Putin into a Bond villain: the man with the spider’s touch,” he said, using a line from 1964’s “Goldfinger” theme to recount the way Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) described Putin on Monday,
“They want to believe that they didn’t lose the election… that someone stole it from them,” Steyn said, calling their drumbeat against Russia “nuts.”
He said that the federal investigation into Russia’s action is doing Putin’s bidding by appearing to undermine an American president “more than having some cabinet secretary in his pocket would.”

Steyn is dead on in his analysis of the Democrats.
They just can’t admit to themselves that they lost.
