The Coming Battle Between Trump, The DOJ and Comey
The battle for facts and truth goes on:
Have you reached end the end of your political tolerance rope yet?
Has your political insanity tolerance meter pegged yet?
Every day it’s another adventure in the Trump presidency. First the left just knew for certain that Trump and Putin worked together to take over the ’16 election machine and destroy America in the process. They ignored anything to do with Clinton’s lawlessness and rampant deficiencies and inefficiencies in running a campaign, but they pursued this Trump rant for months and months hoping that facts would justify the desire for Trump’s downfall.
Now that nearly a year’s worth of efforts digging and mining sources and rat holes for non-existent proof of ANY collaboration with the Russians has reveal not a “smidgen of corruption,” they’ve moved on to the next talking point – That Trump illegally interfered with the firing of FBI Dir Comey.
Of course forgetting that Trump followed the suggestion of his Asst. AG, ignoring the fact that Dems and Pubs alike called for his firing as far back as last Oct, and TOTALLY setting aside that Trump has the absolute power given by the constitution to fire anyone he chooses for any reason, it’s an ongoing circus of comedic proportion.
The real fly in the pie is the Mueller involvement. The investigative rule (28 CFR 600.7) states that conflict of interest is basis for recusal. The rule has been interpreted to mean that even the appearance of a conflict is sufficient for disqualification. After all, Mueller is not only Comey’s long time friend, and co-worker but Comey is a witness and the ties are too strong for an independent connection. It’s widely known that Comey regards his predecessor as a mentor, while Mueller considers Comey his protégé.
It’s clear where all of this is headed. Mueller’s probe will morph into an investigation of the Trump-Comey meeting to determine whether the president tried to obstruct justice. It will become a case of “he said…he said”. Which man will the special counsel believe? His good friend or the man who fired his good friend? How can Mueller fairly and impartially assess Comey’s credibility versus Trump’s?
The country is no longer run by laws but by leaks, innuendos, half truths and conjecture. The congressional expenditure of MILLIONS of tax payer dollars to pursue a long menu of “nothing burgers” pales in comparison to the fact that actual work and progress is NOT being done toward those issues that bear real importance like the economy, restoration of our rights and freedoms, securing our country from without and within.
The future may be bright, mediocre or dim but there is a future, and time will tell if we survive the outcome.
