Lordy lordy. Wat?
What a backstabbing manipulator. What an overgrown pajama boy.
Working in public service through several administrations, his credentials are impressive. But his testimony last week revealed much:
The Clinton campaign – its email server debacle – was the real scandal. That Loretta Lynch asked any inquiry from Comeys’ office to refer to that investigation as a “matter” tells much. If confirms in the minds of many that Lynch’s meeting between her and slick willie on the airport tarmac was more than golf and grandchildren.
That there was no collusion, or at least evidence of it, between Trump, his campaign, and the Russians. There never was evidence, but the more media uses the word, the more they like to think – the more they wish – people would believe it.
That Trump, as much as liberals would like to say otherwise, never demanded that he stop any investigation into Mike Flynn. Comey may have felt “uneasy” or “nauseous” (huh?). But his testimony confirms it, as do his convenient “notes” or “memos” from his recollection of meetings with Trump, where he never says such a demand be made. Quite frankly, even if Trump did make any demand, Trump would have been beyond right. A president has the authority to fire the FBI director. This is not without precedent. Think not? Just look at Alan Dershowitz’s take on the matter.
President HW Bush, in the early 90’s ended the investigation against and afterwards pardoned Casper Wienberger in the Iran Contra scandal. No obstruction there. (Because Bush is not Trump. The level of animosity and outright hostility to the current Executive is unprecedented). Did not Obama refuse to go after those here illegally – illegal immigrants? No one says he was interfering with investigations or prosecutions, or, in this example, deportations. What about Executives in charge of “sanctuary cities?” Are they not interfering, to some degree?
Detractors will argue otherwise, the again, the point is, the President has the legal authority to fire. Period. And the real problem is, the general public are being told otherwise.
Comey’s testimony offers unanswered questions. Instead of consistently forthright, straightforward and pointed questions, he was “lorded” for his “service” and “honesty(!).” Tossed softball questions, his testimony was self-serving. That, of a disgruntled employee.
Where were his notes when Lynch asked him to treat the Clinton investigation as a “matter.” For that matter, where are notes on any meetings with Obama? If Lynch asked Comey to treat that investigation as something other than it was, why are they, Lynch specifically, not accused of interference.
If he felt he was being manipulated by the President, where was that in the notes he leaked to his law professor friend? His answer was, “I don’t know.” If he had any problem with any discussions with Trump, why did he not start an investigation, or go up the chain – complain to others – which he did not. He didn’t go to White House Counsel. He did not go to the Department of Justice. It does not appear he complained to others in his department. Not his deputies or peers, so it seems.
If he was so “concerned” about Trump, in his “gut” so he said, why did he have dinner with the President? Or meet with him at any time? (in the context of all of this, me thinks it was because he knew, at some point, he would be fired).
Point of fact, and one that MSM ignores, this position serves at the pleasure of the executive. That would be Trump. Another fact the media ignores.
Others say it better:
