In February, then FBI Director Comey was asked in a Congressional hearing if anyone in the Administration had put pressure at any time on him to stop the investigation of General Flynn and others who might be dealing with the Russians in an improper manner. Comey said NO. And then, early this month, Comey was asked an almost identical question during a Senate hearing if the Administration had brought pressure on him to end the investigation and he said NO again. And then later this same month, Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, a holdover from the Obama Administration, told a Senate panel that the FBI had all the support it needed in carrying out it's investigation of the Russia issue and had more than sufficient funding to get it's job done, much to the chagrin of Democrats trying to use lack of funding as an argument against Trump.
So if Comey knew that Trump had tried to influence him on the Flynn issue, and the key is what does influence mean and how is it defined, why didn't he immediately report it to the Justice Department as required by protocol? It seems very clear that if Trump had violated the law Comey would have said so in his sworn testimony before Congress. Did he instead violate the law by giving false testimony under oath? Is he the one who is guilty of obstruction of justice (the charge being bandied about), not Trump? Or, as I suspect, was there no obstruction of justice in the first place? These are questions that need to be answered by Comey and it's pathetic that the media hasn't picked up on it. But, then again, that wouldn't meet their desired agenda.
And now we have a Special Prosecutor assigned, former FBI Director Robert Mueller, when we don't have any indictments and we don't have any evidence other than hearsay from anonymous sources. I don't think such an action has ever been taken like this before on such a weak basis, certainly not in either the Nixon or Clinton impeachment cases, but then again the media was never so overly biased as it is today. Or at least they tried to put on a front of being impartial in the old days.
We've had a full frontal assault by the media on Trump since day one, since the Establishment, Democratic and Republican and the huge bureaucracy is petrified that Trump will continue to try and drain the Swamp. And make no mistake about it, folks, the Swamp is alive and well, it is the Deep State, and it will do anything it can to either eliminate Trump or at least stop his agenda. Shame on Democrats and a significant group of Republicans who have interest only in their personal future and fortunes, not what is needed to make America a nation that operates under the rule of law. Like it or not, Trump is trying to put the law back where it should be, not the hype and outrageous behaviors of fat cat politicians and their supporting cronies. Of course, if you want the government telling you every little detail of how to live your life and controlling your destiny, then this direction is probably something you want. But if it comes to full fruition, it won't be America, it will be tyranny of the state.
As a closing thought, today's headline with Reuters is probably about as good sm example of how the media tries to make a non-story into a headline. Reuters reported today that anonymous sources had identified eighteen Trump Administration officials who were in contact with Russia. CNN and others jumped on it but they obviously didn't read the whole story. Hidden in the weeds near the end of the story was a statement that no action which could be considered improper was found. The media should be ashamed but they won't be, because they are on a mission for the Democrats and those who agree with them and this will continue. A sad state of affairs for the Fourth Estate.
A fair media is dead. Let's bring on the truth instead.
