Democratic lawmakers exhibiting all the signs of “sour grapes” in both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives are demanding the formation of an investigative commission to investigate Russian involvement, if any, in the 2016 presidential election, Fox News Channel’s chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge reported.

New York’s Democratic Senator Charles “Chuck” Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) are claiming that meetings must be held in order to probe the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) claims that there may have been Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election, which saw Republican Donald Trump win the presidency.

Herridge quoted Pelosi as stating, “Even if Hillary Clinton had won, it’s still important for us to have a… nonpartisan, bipartisan commission to review it.” .

As has occurred in the past, nonpartisan and bipartisan have a different meaning to members of the Democratic Party, according to former intelligence officer and New York police officer Benjamin Kelios. “This will become nothing more than a exercise in bashing President-elect Donald Trump and the Democrats trying to put ‘stink’ on Trump’s nominees for his administration,” said Kelios. “The GOP must not rollover for the Democrats. We didn’t have a special commission for Fast and Furious, the IRS scandal, Benghazi or other suspicious activity in the Obama administration. Why start now?” he added.

With Donald Trump just weeks away from taking his oath of office as the 45th President of the United States, Hillary Clinton sycophants, the Democratic Party and their partners in the news media are attempting to delegitimize the election. As part of their strategy the Democrats and the news media are telling the American people that Trump’s campaign was assisted by Russia.

But this wasn’t the first time that the Obama administration made these allegations on behalf of his political party. According to a former special agent with the FBI, his agency had already investigated prior to Election Day the same allegations  that Russia became involved in the U.S. election.

And the nation’s leading law enforcement organization found nothing: there was no Russian link to GOP presidential candidate Trump. The FBI report said they had probed whether or not there was a relationship between Trump’s businesses and Russian banks. They discovered nothing, according to their own report.

The damaging material that had been released by Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, was one of the lynchpins of the Democrats/media narrative that Assange’s released documents were obtained from the Russian government to torpedo Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

When the documents — mostly emails from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and from Clinton campaign manager John Podesta — were released, most of the nation’s newsrooms focused on the source of the emails rather than the contents that showed a corrupt and hypocritical Democratic Party.

Assange claimed — and continues to claim — he received the documents from a high level employee of the DNC, Seth Conrad Rich.  The 27-year-old Rich was murdered on the streets of Washington, D.C. under very suspicious circumstances, made more suspicious by the fact that none in the elite news media covered the killing or the police and coroner’s investigations.

According to few news reports during the election campaign that covered the story, the Democratic Party’s up-and-coming executive, Seth Conrad Rich, died after he was shot multiple times three blocks east of Howard University Hospital, said members of the Metropolitan Police Department on Sunday, July 11. They attributed Rich’s killing to a robbery gone wrong.

However, the medical examiner’s finding were highly suspicious since Rich was said to have been beaten and then shot in the back of his head. The alleged robbers — still unknown — also failed to take anything of value from Rich’s lifeless body.

WikiLeaks’ gadfly Julian Assange implied during an interview that the murdered Democratic National Committee staffer was his source for a trove of damaging emails his rogue website posted just days before the Democratic National Convention.

Seth Conrad Rich was the Voter Expansion Data Director at the DNC and had been working on exposing the recent cases of election fraud and voter suppression during the primaries around the country, according to his listing.

Some Internet web sites that cover politics have said Rich was a whistleblower who discovered irregularities in Democratic Party voting patterns.
