Blood is in the water as the left has reached a the high point of the impeachment feeding frenzy.
Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, the national security adviser, said the president did not divulge “sources and methods” to the Russians. McMaster noted on Tuesday that a Russian airliner was blown up by Islamic terrorists in October 2015, and suggested a mutual concern took over the meeting.But the media and Democrats, pretending to be born-again, anti-Kremlin security hawks, threw a major hissy fit. There is no denying the Trump revelation to Russia may be serious — yet it may also be routine, as a presidential matter — but the media badly overplayed the story.
And the media were generally proud they overplayed it. At The Washington Post, the newsroom broke into applause as the story surpassed the Post’s own record for most readers-per-minute originally set by the “Hollywood Access” story, according to Glenn Kessler, the Post’s “fact checker” columnist. The “Hollywood Access” story was the Trump scandal during the campaign in which the Post discovered an 11-year-old audiotape of Trump engaging in lewd talk with Billy Bush.
Bashing Trump is good business, and the newsroom has gotten the message.
democrats have gotten what they want. The DOJ has appointed a Special Prosecutor:
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to serve as special counsel to oversee the previously confirmed FBI investigation of Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election and related matters.”I have determined that a Special Counsel is necessary in order for the American people to have full confidence in the outcome,” Rosenstein said in a statement.
Never mind that obama did pretty much exactly as Trump has done, except that obama was worse. Much worse. But for liberals history begins on the day Trump was elected and only nothingness existed before that big bang.
The letter announcing the appointment reads that Mueller is authorized to investigate “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and…any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.”
The old proverb says be careful what you wish for. I hope now that Trump is impeached. I hope they get what they want. I hope they enjoy what it brings for the country.
The stock market reached at an all time high– after a Trump speech. Trump is taking obama’s jackboot off the throat of American business.
Small business confidence surged to a 12 year high under Trump.
Optimism among business executives has surged under Trump.
democrats want this to end, because they don’t like Trump. Never mind that no law has been broken.
Even assuming, for the sake of argument, that Mr. Trump intended an implied offer of continued employment in exchange for Mr. Comey’s dismissal of the Flynn investigation, it would be implausible for Mr. Comey to construe it as such. Mr. Comey was aware that he was an at-will employee who could be fired by the president at any time, for any reason. Indeed, when President Obama endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in June 2016 — during the height of the F.B.I.’s investigation into Secretary Clinton’s private email server — it would have been similarly implausible for Mr. Comey to construe Mr. Obama’s pro-Clinton remarks as an implicit offer of continued employment, in exchange for dropping the Clinton investigation. Even though Mr. Comey dropped the investigation one month later, he presumably knew that although it would please both Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton, it would not insulate him from being fired.But even if one adopted an unprecedentedly broad conception of bribery, Mr. Trump’s purported statement still would not violate Section 1510. The statute is designed to preserve the free flow of information, prohibiting only acts that obstruct investigators’ access to information. Bribery of a potential witness, for example, is behavior prohibited by Section 1510. But telling the F.B.I. director that someone is a “good guy” and expressing the hope that an investigation will cease does not obstruct the free flow of information.
Never mind that FBI Deputy Director McCabe testified -after Trump fired Comey- that no one has tried to impede the Russia investigation.
Never mind that if Comey felt Trump was trying to obstruct justice Comey was duty bound to report it to the DOJ right away.
As I said, be careful what you wish for. As news of Mueller’s appointment today spread, the market dropped 370 points.
