The "phony war" was the name given to the six-month period following Germany's invasion of Poland in September 1939, when there was no fighting along the Western Front.
The Democrats' investigation is launching as Special Counsel Robert Mueller's is winding down, so far without any revelations of collusion with Russian Federation. The battle lines are drawn.
On Twitter, the president exclaimed that it was "Ridiculous!" But the real war has not yet begun, as all sides wait to see whether Mueller will drop a bombshell - or a dud.
