(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) Democrats on Capitol Hill are concerned that inflation is distracting Americans and making them too complacent to notice the sham developments in the Jan. 6 investigation, RedState reported.
They leak unverified reports to lackey journalists, who dutifully report the “bombshell” findings, which later information proves entirely false. None have stuck.
The J6 Committee pushed the “Trump phone call gap” conspiracy. This narrative asserted that former President Donald Trump’s aides had modified or scrubbed the White House’s telephone records and that Trump himself used a “burner” phone to hide his seditious conversations.
This is insane. Insane. It was the top trend on twitter for two days. Every journalist shared it. They get everything wrong. What are these people doing? pic.twitter.com/J44UFFrU8o

Then the mainstream media pushed the “bombshell” allegation that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told Cheney in a private conversation that he hoped Trump would resign. Both Trump and McCarthy denied the allegation.
Democrats feel like the J6 investigation has descended into the same disgraced and debunked status as Robert Mueller’s Russian collusion investigation, according to an Axios report.

Some Democratic strategists worry that the party has nothing to run on in the 2022 midterm elections except a false insurrection allegation, RedState reported.
“There is as much a plan to win the midterms as there was to airlift Afghans out of Kabul,” one Democrat political adviser with ties to the White House said. “They’re putting us all in a bad place.”
