For the Left, the current Comey memo constitutes a serious frisson event. The controversy now enveloping the White House is not about investigations, the former FBI Director’s firing, Lt.Gen. Flynn, revealed secrets to Russian diplomats or White House fence jumpers. It is totally and completely another opportunity for the deranged ultra-leftist media to destroy Donald Trump and his administration, and do it fast before he can finish drawing the swamp. Simple as that!
The Donald is like a lightening rod. I have a hunch he does a lot of it on purpose so we can all see how dysfunctional and out of control the media really is. Since 2008, voters have seen how awful the previous administration was and it took three election cycles to remove the new Marxist Party (Democrat), from the game card. Chuckie Schumer, supposed leader of nothing, can’t get to a microphone fast enough to bloviate in somber tones, predicting America’s imminent demise at the hands of the loose cannon, Donald Trump, rolling around recklessly on the deck of the ship of state.
The firing of Director Comey was in-artful, but still everyone could see it coming. Humiliated by the process, Comey, a political creature right from the swamp, will become a weapon of the Left to continue the attack on Donald Trump. Comey’s memo, shared with a NYT reporter via telephone conversation, has not been seen, yet it is considered to be ‘revealed truth’ and as important to exposing Trumps’ inadequacies as finding a lost book of the gospel proving Darwin was right.
Wouldn’t it be fun if President Trump rehired James Comey just to see how fast the Democrats could change positions again? Former Director Comey will never be a model of rectitude. He blew that with the Hillary Clinton investigation. Indeed, it was an obstruction of justice for Comey to present a case for Clinton’s carelessness that revealed state secrets (a crime) to our enemies while declining to recommend prosecution because Clinton lacked intent.
I cannot avoid believing the Directors recommendation to have been part of the secret Lynch/Clinton tarmac meeting. He thought he should step beyond his duty to shield Attorney General Lynch and give her cover for not being forced to prosecute what was Clinton’s clear violation of laws that specifies “intent” is not needed for a crime to have been committed. This especially applies to violations outside penal codes, the laws, rules and regulations pertaining to the proper handling of classified materials. Materials includes documents, manuals, equipment, software, hardware, and anything that pertains to government operations deemed classified.
The whole story will probably not be known, to us anyway, until years have passed. Comey had to know the Clinton fix was in, and his shocking “no reasonable prosecutor” comment really meant “no prosecutor in this DOJ”. But, so long as he had gone this far, a rarity in FBI proceedings, he should have laid out enough evidence to show culpability, and then say, “it is now up to the Attorney General to decide on whether to bring charges or not.”
Comey is a team player for the Left so his true mission was to protect the process, not the results. If he had not, he would’ve been fired then and there and Lynch would have been insulated. As it is, she now becomes one of the dominos, standing in line behind Eric Holder, Lois Lerner, et. al. always fearful of facing prosecution for their misdeeds, unless..Trump can be neutralized and made redundant. Is that too much to ask of a loyal swamp creature? Fall on your sword and give one for the “Gipper?” Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (17May17)
