Democratic Rep. Jan Schakowsky (Ill.) is married to Robert Creamer, one of the key figures in O’Keefe’s undercover video that showed him organizing Democrat operatives to incite Trump supporters, hoping to get them to commit acts of violence that could be caught on film, thereby helping Hillary to win the election.

Creamer was a convicted felon who oversaw a check-kiting scheme so elaborate that his employees followed a written manual — complete with detailed instructions on when and where to float checks totaling millions of dollars.

It’s only natural that the wife of a disgraced Democrat operative and convicted felon would be asked by CNN to offer hope about the future of the floundering Democrat Party.

Democratic Rep. Jan Schakowsky (Ill.) said Monday that she believes Democrats can win the 25 seats they need to retake the House of Representatives in 2018.

Schakowsky’s comments on CNN came days after the Democratic Party lost its fourth straight special congressional election, with Jon Ossoff losing to Republican Karen Handel in last Tuesday’s House race in Georgia’s sixth district.

CNN host Poppy Harlow asked Schakowsky about the loss in Georgia, as well as others in Montana, Kansas, and South Carolina. Schakowsky dismissed the losses, arguing they are not indicative of Democrats’ electoral chances in 2018.

“The reason that those Republicans were appointed to the [Trump] administration is because they were considered safe Republican districts. The Ossoff district, the sixth district in Georgia, is the 71st most likely district that Democrats can win,” she said. “In other words, there are 70 districts that will be easier than that.”

Schakowsky was referring to the fact that the Georgia race and special elections in other states were replacing seats vacated by lawmakers who were nominated to serve in President Donald Trump’s administration. –WFB
