The Democrats’ ‘Red Scare’ Narrative Is Over

David Ignatius should keep up with The Narrative. In his column today, he speaks ominously of Donald Trump’s “growing difficulty in the Russia investigation.”

This is of a piece with several other Red Scare pieces by Ignatius and other anti-Trump Democrats with bylines. A couple of weeks ago, responding to Trump’s declaration that the whole Russian Dressing meme was a “ruse,” Ignatius wheeled into print insisting that, no, “Russia’s Global Hacking Efforts Are Far from a ‘Ruse’.” Quoting France’s ambassador to Washington, Ignatius speculated that, “if unchecked,” Russia’ disinformation efforts, in which Donald Trump’s presidential campaign was “perhaps” a “tool,” “could pose an ‘existential threat’ to Western democracy.”
