The Democratic Party’s political strategy over the last four years has centered around conspiracy theory.

On Tuesday night, we saw that nothing has changed — Joe Biden is content to run on even more conspiracy theories.

If one could get past the on-stage cross-talk, there was something of real substance that voters should not ignore about Joe Biden’s role in the attempted coup against Donald Trump starting months before the 2016 election.

One conspiracy theory, "Russiagate," underpinned the Democratic Party’s reaction to the 2016 election and its efforts to undermine the early part of President Trump’s administration.

Documents released by the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday confirm what we always knew: the entire idea that President Trump was a Russian secret agent was cooked up in the summer of 2016 to distract from Hillary Clinton’s email scandal — and President Barack Obama was briefed that even Russian intelligence knew of the plan.

After cheering from the sidelines as the country was put through two years of baseless hysteria over imaginary "collusion," Biden showed us on Tuesday that he hasn’t had enough of Russiagate.

"Putin’s puppet," he called the president, reaching for the deranged "resistance" believers still clinging to their Robert Mueller sweatshirts.

Even worse is the context in which he managed to slip the line in there: by reference to yet another conspiracy theory. Despite weeks of investigation confirming that there is no evidence that Russia placed "bounties" on American troops in Afghanistan, Joe Biden was still up there repeating it as though it were fact, rather than an obvious political ploy to revive "Russia" as a campaign issue four years past its expiration date.

Biden kept going, making reference to The Atlantic’s ridiculous smear about the president calling America’s World War II dead "losers" and "suckers."

Of all the anonymous hit jobs the media has cooked up over the last five years, this one was one of the weakest. It didn’t even pass the smell test.

There were multiple people with firsthand knowledge — including John Bolton, who wrote a book about how much he hates the president — who went on the record to say it didn’t happen.

There’s also documentation from the day in question confirming President Trump’s version of events, that one of his many cemetery visits was called off due to inclement weather.

Yet there was Joe Biden, repeating it as fact, as though the White House, John Bolton, and the U.S. military were all in a conspiracy to debunk an Atlantic article.

Alas, conspiracy theories are absolutely essential to how Joe Biden and other Democrats have tried to portray the president to the American people from the day he announced his candidacy. Without conspiracy theories, they’d have to face the fact that his policies, leadership, and even his much-maligned forthrightness are — at their root — basically appealing.

President Trump handled the situation well.

He’s used to it by now.

Joe Biden wishes he could say the same about his own "Russia trouble."

When President Trump cited the Senate investigations revealing that his son Hunter’s foreign dealings were even worse than previously known — including accepting $3.5 million from a Russian oligarch and ex-wife of Moscow’s mayor — "thoroughly debunked
" is all Biden could manage to unconvincingly stammer.

One could easily say the same of Biden’s entire candidacy.
