He Still Thinks He's on The Apprentice

     Yeah, he still thinks he's on The Apprentice.
     Brain Stem Zero, charitably referred to as "President Trump", had just fired FBI Director James Comey. The reason? Well, as with the Yates firing last January, there are two possible reasons and one is more chilling than the other.
     As it was told to the New York Times, Trump's avowed reason for firing Comey immediately was his perceived bungling of the Clinton email investigation. This is ridiculous for several reasons. First off, Comey's October 27 letter to Congress had been widely perceived as actually helping Trump by turning off voters to Hillary Clinton. While this may be a simplistic way of looking at it, Comey's ill-advised letter to Congress less than two weeks before the election couldn't have possibly harmed Trump.
     Secondly, despite his bravado at the third presidential debate about putting Hillary in jail, days after "winning" the election, he played the magnanimous big man and said he wouldn't pursue criminal charges against Clinton, which makes his supposed reason for firing Comey all the more nonsensical.
     Then there's the possible real reason- Just last week, Comey had testified before the Senate and revealed that the FBI was assisting in at least one grand jury looking into Russia hacking the election and its ties to the Trump campaign.
     Plus, as the Times simply put it, "Mr. Comey was leading an investigation into whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election."
     Yeah, this is Archibald Cox all over again. Let the inevitable coverup begin.
     So, to recap:
     On January 30th, Acting Attorney General Sally Yates goes to the White House for the third time in a row to warn White House counsel about Michael Flynn, still the National Security Advisor, being vulnerable to blackmail. White House Counsel then has the gall to ask the Acting Attorney General why the Justice Department is so curious about one White House Official lying to another.
     Later that same day, Sally Yates is fired.
     Last week, James Comey testifies before the Senate and informs them that not only is he leading an investigation into the extent of Russia's role in hacking the election, which also benefited Trump, and the day after Jim Clapper and Sally Yates testifies before that same body, Comey gets fired. On the spot. Effective immediately. Toward the end of today's news cycle.
     We need to do two things now:
     Number one, as Sen. Ron Wyden said on his Twitter account, we need to get Comey back in there now that he doesn't have to worry about getting fired. And we need to know what he knows and when he knew it.
     Secondly, if this highly suspicious termination proves anything, it's the need for an independent investigation led by an independent investigator that Trump can't fire to get to the bottom of what happened.
     And firing Comey when and how he did greatly underscores that. It sends a clear signal to those of us with our ears on the rails that Yates and Comey were both getting close to the truth and they both got fired by the same guy.
     More on this tomorrow.

Again, there's no evidence whatsoever the Trump colluded with the Russians, or if anything the Russians did had any impact at all on the election. This was a free and fair election. You retards lost. Get over it. Nominate somebody decent in 2020. But you have no bench, do you? You have nobody that can take Donald down. Pence 2024! Forward! You are a buffoon.

Of course there's no evidence to be seen if one keeps their fat heads in the sand. And if by "losing" you mean Trump lost the popular vote by nearly three million, then, yes, we lost.

Now go troll some other blog. You're just embarrassing yourself at this point.

Sessions also needs to be impeached- he recused himself from having anything to do with an investigation of Trump; and yet, inserted himself directly when he advised POTUS to fire Comey- who was investigating Trump & Co...

Funny how the very same Republican 'patriots' who were always screaming "Better dead than Red," sure seem to love Mother Russia these days...

Yeah, huh? These right wing morons don't even know why they're supporting Russia for any reason other than Trump does. If Trump openly endorsed NAMBLA, they'd suddenly be supportive of pederasts.
