SENATOR ORRIN HATCH just let it rip by telling the media to knock it off with the drama about President Trump. He says he doesn’t care about Trump’s legal troubles but it’s not what you might think.
Hatch told CNN reporter Manu Raju that this is all a big nothingburger:
Hatch dismisses allegations of Trump crimes over hush money. Asked if he had any concerns, Hatch said: “The Democrats will do anything to hurt this president.” Told it was alleged by SDNY, Hatch told me: “Okay but I don’t care; all I can say is he’s doing a good job as President”
Hatch added this when asked if he was concerned about allegations. “No, because I don’t think he was involved in crimes but even then, you know, you can make anything a crime under the current laws; if you want to you can blow it way out of proportion you can do a lot of things.”
Hatch also told me: “President Trump before he became president that’s another world. Since he’s become president this economy has charged ahead. … And I think we ought to judge him on that basis other than trying to drum up things from the past that may or may not be true.”
The CNN reporter also said Grassley thinks it’s all BS:
Grassley, the Senate Judiciary chairman, similarly dismisses the federal prosecutors’ argument: “They based it on what a liar says, so it hurts the credibility of it.”

THANK GOODNESS FOR WISDOM!
Orrin Hatch has a wicked sense of humor. We’ll miss his tweets during his time in D.C.
One of our top favorites happened during the Kavanaugh hearings:
BASED ORRIN HATCH! This will make your day! Senator Orrin Hatch isn’t playing with these protesters! He gives it right back at them until the end…Hatch waves off protesters screaming at him. Protester “Don’t you wave your hand at me. I wave my hand at you.” Hatch: “Why don’t you grow up?” Protesters triggered, melt-down, scream at the 84 year-old
Hatch, “Why don’t you grow up!!!”
BASED ORRIN HATCH
Hatch waves off protesters screaming at him.
Protester "Don't you wave your hand at me. I wave my hand at you."
Hatch: "Why don't you grow up?"
Protesters triggered, melt-down, scream at the 84 year-old Hatch, "Why don't you grow up!!!"

The leftist protesters are out in force having a temper tantrum on the floor of the Hart Senate Office Building. They are organized and all have pre-printed signs with slogans on them in support of NOT confirming Judge Kavanaugh. Their assumption is that he sexually assaulted Christine Blasey Ford even though the FBI found nothing to prove that happened. These people are walking down a dangerous path where they find someone guilty with NO EVIDENCE to back it up.
SHAME ON THESE WOMEN FOR PRESUMING GUILT BEFORE INNOCENCE…
