After Comey’s testimony, I had to wonder why there was not a call to investigate the actions of the former Attorney General Loretta Lynch concerning Hillary Clinton’s server and email investigation. There is not a peep from the Left nor has there been an outcry from the media about this. It would have been interesting to investigate just how much cover and cooperation James Comey afforded Loretta Lynch in the cessation of investigating Hillary Clinton. Mr. Comey was comfortable with overlooking a mountain of evidence by saying Mrs. Clinton lacked “intent,” but let President Trump wonder if he can count on Mr. Comey’s “loyalty,” and that becomes the basis of an “obstruction of justice” accusation. Something smells rotten here and I think it is Comey and Lynch.
This past week there was some talk that President Trump was considering the firing of Robert Mueller. Given the testimony of both James Comey and Attorney General Sessions as well as the complete lack of any evidence to justify the continuation of (in President Trump’s words) this witch hunt, I believe Mueller should be terminated. We the People should not stand for Mueller going down every rabbit hole with the hope he might find something he can use to bring down the president. And, there is very little excuse for this taxpayer waste of money; according to the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel, a sitting president cannot be indicted. Yes. You read that right.
Of course, this little technicality means nothing to the Left. All that matters is the “accusation” and keeping it alive through incessant media coverage. This gives the Left a platform to continue their rant about having an election “stolen” while they conveniently ignore the shortcomings of their candidate (Mrs. Clinton had no vision beyond excoriating Donald Trump and his supporters) and her crimes, crimes for which there exists evidence in abundance!
If President Trump does fire Mueller in the near future, it will kick up some dust and create some speculation but the issue will finally die off. President Trump and his team can then get on with the business of healthcare, economic expansion and tax reform—something most of the Washington insiders on both sides of the aisle do not want to see. They are in love with the status quo, and their performance over the past eight years is a pretty good indication of that. Every yard that Trump gains will be hard won and an uphill fight.
Senator Angus King, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said on a recent broadcast of Meet the Press, “I can say categorically that the collusion, the cooperation aspect of the investigation is not over.” He went on to say that, “. . . we’re 20 percent into it, just to throw a number at it.” He anticipates the investigation running through the end of the year. The House Intelligence Committee is also pursuing a similar investigation and this past weekend House Representative Adam Schiff indicated there is no evidence one could present to a jury, but the investigation should continue anyway because there are some things worthy of investigation. But he wouldn’t elaborate. That must be code for we’ll keep on keeping on until we find something that doesn’t sound too desperate or far-fetched.
The Americans are growing weary of this dog and pony show. The Democrats have nothing but the dog and pony show and so it behooves them to keep it going. But you know what? With all this nonsense about supposed Russian meddling, the Left has been successful in making us take our eye off the ball. The ball is not the leaks themselves, but what they showed about candidate Clinton and the DNC. As then-candidate Trump noted at a rally in Ohio following a recent WikiLeak dump, “The more emails WikiLeaks releases, the more the lines between the Clinton Foundation, the secretary of State’s office, and the Clintons’ personal finances are blurred.” But no-one wants to talk about that.
