Tucker Carlson gives Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell the chance to make the case for Russia collusion in the 2016 election, and Eric Swalwell fails to do so

Representative Swalwell is a brave man.

While most RussiaGate witch hunters are turning tail and backpedaling on the whole baloney story, he doubles down, entering the nation's premier boxing ring to duke it out with the Tuck.

He's not very bright

Maybe he figured it doesn't matter how badly he would do, it's just good exposure to have a long segment on this high-profile show. He's probably right, actually.

And he got bloodied. The crescendo begins around 3.55. There is a moment not long after that where he gets a deer-in-the-headlights look when he realizes the Tuck has driven him into a corner where he is talking utter bullocks. It is quite funny.

Russiagate has gone on for over a year and nothing has come of it. We still aren't sure what exactly the Russian collusion accusation is. 

Are the Russians alleged to have hacked voting machines and changed votes? No, but the American neoliberals insist Russian secret service much have been responsible for their leaked emails that wikileaks provided to the public. At least that accusation could be a reasonable accusation.

And yet the alleged DNC "victims" wouldn't let the FBI analyze the servers and determine the truth as Trump himself pointed out on Twitter last year:

The interview can be painful to watch. At this point the American neoliberal establishment may as well accuse Russian neopagan shamans of conducting a rain-dance ritual and thus undermining democrat voter turnout. At least in that case we'd have a clear accusation to listen to.
