Donald Trumps allies in Congress and the pro-Trump media are scrambling to find a counter-narrative to the Ukraine impeachment investigation that can shore up Republican support, even crashing into closed hearings in some kind of misguided protest.
In theory, finding allegations to throw back at Democrats shouldnt be that hard for Trumps media allies. They already have the playbook and pundits left over from the response to former special counsel Robert Muellers probe. But this time around, the narrative keeps getting scramblednew damning witness testimony comes out of another hearing, or chief of staff Mick Mulvaney badly botches a press conference.
Now, with few appealing options, theyve latched onto their the most ridiculous claim yet: portraying a mundane social media search tool as a deep-state conspiracy theory.
