James Comey, former FBI director, was considered to be contradiction, a riddle wrapped in an enigma. Now he’s a riddle wrapped in an enigma inside a Rubik’s cube. The Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, today, called Comey insubordinate and called his judgment into question. There’s a lot of questionable judgment running around Washington these days, including forcible segregation of immigrant children from their parents at the border, fetes for a ruthless dictator famed for killing members of his own family, and alleged official self-enrichment that would make King Midas blush.
Sad to say that the truth has become a diminishing commodity in America today. Particularly when it comes to many branches of government. Remember the old adage that “I’m from the federal government and I’m here to help you?” Too often, they are here to examine, investigate and even prosecute you.
So our President is a mafia boss, an unethical liar and “morally unfit” to be leading the country. At least that’s the opinion of former FBI chief James Comey. In his recent interviews, Comey also has a problem with Donald Trump’s orange skin, his ties that are too long, and even the size of his hands. Really important stuff from the nation’s former top cop.
Donald Trump today has told the world that he did not do what he said he had done
This morning, in a tweet, slamming James Comey, Trump said:
Slippery James Comey, the worst FBI Director in history, was not fired because of the phony Russia investigation where, by the way, there was NO COLLUSION (except by the Dems)!
The bell has rung. The battle match for the truth has begun.
So we can all agree that James Comey made major mistakes during the 2016 elections. And, I think most of us can agree, that Comey continues to do so as he swings at President Trump recounting it all through his book and TV appearances.
Cutting to the chase, with all of the punching, bobbing, weaving and President Donald Trump's famous counter-punches, is anyone landing any real blows. Or, are we watching too much swinging below the belt?
The sky won’t fall if Democrats get elected in droves in November, or Republican resist a wave. The world won’t end if Donald Trump is sent packing, either, but you wouldn’t know it from the president’s fund-raising pleas and Republican hand-wringing. Demographics are more likely than anything else to change the country. It doesn’t matter that James Comey is skewering the president, or whomsoever may sit in seats currently occupied by Paul Ryan or Mitch McConnell. It’s pretty clear that young people, already, hate Trump and his bellicose politics by a large margin.
Thank God we don’t have to talk about Stormy Daniels this week, and how her lawyer bushwhacked the president’s posse. There’s something new for a change. It’s called semantics, as in the difference between “subject” and “target.” Donald Trump, the special counsel informs, is the subject of an investigation, but not its target. It’s a wonderful revelation because it has something for everyone.
More turmoil in the White House continues to cast doubt on Donald Trump’s leadership. Start with the firings of FBI Deputy Director, Andrew McCabe, and Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson. McCabe’s potentially unfavorable testimony before a grand jury convened by Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, doomed him. Trump has now fired two top FBI officials, including Director, James Comey, to protect himself from Mueller’s Russia investigation.
While the media is celebrating the announcement that former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, a bigger scandal was practically ignored.
On Thursday, Judicial Watch released 29 pages of FBI emails on the infamous meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac of the Phoenix airport.
Yabba, dabba do! It’s back to James Comey is a liar according to Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House Press Secretary. “He lied,” she averred Monday, and claimed there’s new information that supports Comey’s firing as FBI Director. Brand new stuff! Can’t wait! Comey’s alleged dishonesty when he famously appeared before Congress to discuss his firing, Sanders said, was a matter for DOJ to investigate. She’s just a tad late and a dollar short.
