There's plenty to say about what would happen next, but what I want to focus on is: why hasn't something like that happened? 
What if they did *anything* more aggressive to truly drive the narrative.
Why hasn't that happened? 
And what's so strange is that they are the ones characterizing the threat! 
It's quite easy to find examples of the dissonance I'm describing. Because it happens almost daily... 
Dems should've been working in unison from Day 1 to raise hell and *attempt* to mitigate the potential for breach here. 
A tweet that goes no further than 'it's insulting to the IC.'
And it stands in isolation. No follow up. No connection to any larger message and plan of action from Dems. 
[We face a "national security imperative" and people suggesting otherwise "comes dangerously close to providing aid and comfort to the enemy."] 
What more do we really need to know? They shouldn't be waiting for Mueller to arrest Trump -- they should be doing everything in their power to arrest his agenda. Right. Now. 
Because what the GOP wants more than anything is time... 
Time to assault institutions like our independent press using the power of the state.
Time to destroy truth and undermine science.
Time to use the government's voice to beckon domestic terrorists.
Time to shred the Constitution... 
And what I'm asking is: 🚨how can they take this passive approach while foregoing appropriate measures to affect public opinion⁉️🚨 
There simply is no justification for their passivity. 
Send a loud signal. Issue the rallying cry. Use your powers and platform to go after these treasonous criminals -- NOW.
