    • Obama’s Just the Enemy And Always Was
      One of the most amusing things about the 07/8 primary season was how often Obama praised Reagan and how few people took him seriously. Obama thought Reagan was great, and said so repeatedly. “He put us on a fundamentally different path because the country was ready for it. I think they felt like, you know, […]

Trump fires Comey 

So I’m sitting in the dentist’s chair waiting for my gum to numb so I can be fitted for a crown (Cha-Ching!!) when CNN notified me that James Comey has been fired for misstatements he made about Clinton’s email. Notice how clever it is that it’s all still Clinton’s fault for having email or whatever?  

The Washington Post unpacks the bullshit: 

Officials said Comey was fired because senior Justice Department officials concluded he had violated Justice Department principles and procedures by publicly discussing the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of private email. Just last week, President Trump publicly accused Comey of giving Clinton “a free pass for many bad deeds’’ when he decided not to recommend criminal charges in the case.

Officials released a Tuesday memo from the Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, laying out the rationale behind Comey’s dismissal.

“The FBI’s reputation and credibility have suffered substantial damage, and it has affected the entire Department of Justice,’’ Rosenstein wrote. “I cannot defend the director’s handling of the conclusion of the investigation of Secretary Clinton’s emails, and I do not understand his refusal to accept the nearly universal judgment that he was mistaken. Almost everyone agrees that the director made serious mistakes; it is one of the few issues that unites people of diverse perspectives.’’

In a letter to Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that he agreed.
“I have concluded that a fresh start is needed at the leadership of the FBI,’’ Sessions wrote. “I must recommend that you remove Director James B. Comey, Jr. and identify an experienced and qualified individual to lead the great men and women of the FBI.’’

oh, please.

They just want to see how many news organizations are willing to chase Clinton’s emails to keep from looking at what it is Trump qnd Sessions are trying to do.

What are they trying to do? Will the media fall for it? Will Trump accuse them of fakery if they dont?

Speculate away while I expectorate.
