The only thing that surprised me about the firing of James Comey was the fact that President Trump was too darn patient with him. He should have given Comey his walking papers immediately following his election. Actually, Trump should have dismissed every single Obama appointee from the onset of his presidency.
Comey’s disgraceful conduct concerning the Hillary Clinton email scandal and investigation was reason enough to find the man either incompetent or politically motivated. Citing the reasons that Clinton should face an indictment, he turned right around and exonerated her. He violated the regulations and rules of the Justice Department. And he shocked the nation when he put Hillary Clinton above the law amidst overwhelming evidence of her criminal activity.
Comey testified that Huma Abedin had sent hundreds and thousands of emails, many of which were classified, to her husband’s computer. Where is Abedin’s subpoena?
Under Comey’s direction, the FBI has become discredited. This once-upon-a-time highly respected agency is now perceived as a political arm of the Establishment in the Washington Swamp. The bureau appears impotent under Comey, and yes, even corrupt.
According to Tucker Carlson, James Comey was feared by many in Washington D.C. Carlson related stories of Washington insiders who were guests on his show who stated off camera that they were personally afraid of Comey. They found his behavior disturbing but were afraid to criticize him in public.
On matters of substance, the firing of James Comey is indisputably warranted. The Democrats, including Chuckie Schumer, have decried a lack of confidence in Comey, but as the Democrats always do, they have cried foul at Comey’s dismissal.
They know that Trump’s firing of Comey was justifiable in terms of his professional performance. But as Saul Alinsky always said, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” So, they do what Democrats do best which is to scramble for another arrow in their quiver.
If Comey deserved to be canned, then it must be the timing that is questioned. Yeah, that’s the ticket. Trump shoulda, coulda, woulda dumped Comey months ago, but he’s doing it now because Comey’s getting too close to his Russian ties. Dum Dee Dum Dum!
Schumer is now calling for a special prosecutor as the Democrats begin their talking points of “Watergate” revisited. Back to Capitol Hill we go for a Democrat pow-wow and another Get-Trump Party begins.
“Why Now?” Chuckie Schumer wants to know. Why not now, Chuckie? Comey’s recent hearing performances tell the tale of an FBI director who never stops digging his own gave. Could it be that he really was going to dig all the way to China?
President Trump may have been magnanimous and made a gracious attempt to overlook Comey’s ineptness at first, but at some point the handle of the shovel breaks. And Comey’s spade completely splintered. At that point there was nothing left to do but to remove the poor guy from the grave he was digging.
Comey’s firing was long overdue, but had Trump discharged him a few months ago, you can bet your sweet bippy that the Democrats would have squealed at their feeding trough then, just like they are doing now.
After all, Democrat outrage is an art. It is political burlesque. Their talking points are predictable and their production is synchronized. Expect words like “timing,” “coverup,” and “abruptly” to headline the media and spew forth from the Democrat pundits.
It makes no difference to the Democrats that President Trump was completely within his rights to let Comey go. Because the Democrats have no principles, so they will never act on principle. They are impersonators who only simulate values. In truth they have none.
The Democrat Party is nothing more than a vaudeville act and not a very good one at that! But we are a captive audience, so we will have no other choice but to watch it all play out. The Democrat Playhouse is always open for business.
