Assume the Left Lies, and You Will Discover the Truth

Reflections on the Trump–Russia collusion lie
From the beginning, I repeatedly said the charge that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election was a lie. The president’s description of it as a “witch hunt” was accurate.
I regularly acknowledged that I was putting my credibility on the line by stating that it was all a hoax. But how did I know that? After all, I wasn’t privy to any confidential intelligence.
One answer is I used common sense. The Trump-Russia collusion charge and the Donald-Trump-is-an-agent-of-the-Kremlin charge struck me — and tens of millions of other Americans — as absurd. Vladimir Putin’s influence on the 2016 election was negligible, and as president, Trump has been harder on Russia — in supporting Ukraine’s anti-Russian government, in fighting Syria’s pro-Russian government, and in confronting Iran’s pro-Russian regime — than Barack Obama was.
But the biggest reason I never believed the Russian collusion charge was that the charge emanated from the left. And the Left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it.
The Left wanted to undo the 2016 presidential election from the day Trump won. So they made up the Russia-collusion story. This was obvious to every conservative — except for “Never Trumpers,” who, with regard to Trump, have been indistinguishable from the Left and were therefore as prepared as any leftist to believe the Trump-Russia collusion tale. We conservatives knew that a) the Left wanted to invalidate the election and b) the Left lies when it is in their interest to do so. So we knew the collusion charge was a fabrication.
