Comey’s Convoluted Con

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Guess whose fault that is? – Self-styled media “watchdog” organization Reporters Without Borders says that hostility towards journalists is rising across the globe.  The liberal “watchdog” naturally attempts to lay the blame for this trend – if indeed it is a trend – at the feet of U.S. President Donald Trump, who it claims has incited the public against the dead journalistic profession, and restricted reporters’ access to his administration.

This of course is the very same Donald Trump who has held more face-to-face press availabilities during his first 16 months in office than his predecessor did in 8 years, the same Donald Trump who has taken the unprecedented step of allowing the press to remain in the White House conference room to witness the entirety of bi-partisan negotiating sessions on crucial issues, the same Donald Trump who interacts personally with the White House press corps on almost a daily basis.  That Donald Trump.

Reporters Without Borders claims that “many democratically elected leaders ‘no longer see the media as part of democracy’s essential underpinning,'” and that that is leading common citizens to take the same view.  The group, made up of the same sort of fake journalists who infest the national news media here in America, naturally never takes a second to reflect on the much more likely notion that all the fake and biased “news” tossed into the public domain by all their fake reporter colleagues might have something to do with the public’s declining esteem for their dead profession.

No surprise here.

This just keeps getting uglier and uglier. – Teenage Drama Queen ex-FBI Director James Comey was twisting himself up into one of those tiny pretzels you get on a United Airlines flight on CNN last night, desperately trying to explain to a suddenly semi-journalistic Anderson Cooper why his leaking of classified information wasn’t really a “leak.” If the film of Comey’s clips from last night were viewed by every American, every American would view him as the slimey, dissembling creep he really is.  Unfortunately, more people watch Sponge Bob Squarepants every night than Anderson Cooper, so it will remain a closely guarded secret over in the CNN vault.

Meanwhile, Fox News – which has a real audience – was reporting that Comey’s classified-information-filled memos weren’t just shared with Comey’s “friend”, Columbia Law Professor Daniel Richman.  They were also shared with others, including…wait for it…oh, you gotta wait for this one…Patrick Fitzgerald!

Yes, I kid you not and swear on a stack of bibles I do not make this stuff up, the self-same Patrick Fitzgerald who we talked about in yesterday’s Campaign Update, the same Patrick Fitzgerald who was the special counsel who tossed Scooter Libby in jail on a trumped-up process charge, the same Patrick Fitzgerald who is the godfather to Comey’s children, the same Patrick Fitzgerald who we found out yesterday has been retained by Comey as part of his criminal defense team.  That Patrick Fitzgerald.

So think this all through in light of this new information.  Comey knows he is now under investigation by the DOJ Inspector General, and also most likely by Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber.  He knows he is in grave danger of serving time in prison for his illegal leaks and multiple perjuries before congress.

Comey also knows that both Richman and Fitzgerald, as the guys to whom he handed copies of his memos – which were the property of the FBI and contained gobs of classified information – are two of the main witnesses to his crimes.  Further, he knows that by sharing those memos with Richman and Fitzgerald, he has placed both of those men in potential criminal jeopardy as well.

Richman has even more of a problem than Fitzgerald, given that he was at the time of his leaking on behalf of Comey an actual employee of the FBI, complete with badge and security clearance and access card to get into and out of the FBI Headquarters in Washington, DC.

So what does Comey do?  Why, he hires both men as his personal lawyers, possibly because they’re both fine lawyers, but also most likely because that gives all three men the opportunity to try to hide behind what used to be the shield of attorney/client privilege.

See how this works?

Of course, the fly in that particular ointment is that current special counsel – and also good buddy to Comey and Fitzgerald – Robert Mueller just crashed the whole notion of attorney/client privilege by staging his jack-booted raid on the home, office and hotel room of President Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen.  If Mueller, working in concert with the U.S. attorney in the Southern District of New York, can stage such a raid and willy-nilly confiscate every document he finds pertaining to every one of Cohen’s clients, and then start selectively leaking them to the fake news media, then what is left of any such “privilege?”

Comey, Richman and Fitzgerald can play hide ‘n seek all they want, but they’re all in deep doo-doo right now, and their good buddy Mueller isn’t helping their situation.  And all of that just could not happen to a nicer bunch of guys.

Just another day in you couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried America.

That is all.

The Horowitz Report is Coming, and Hell’s Coming With it.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  – Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is reportedly telling people around him that he is at peace with the manner in which he has conducted himself in his tireless efforts to preserve the Washington, DC Deep State and take down a sitting president, and is prepared to be fired.

Well, cool.  President Trump should accommodate him.

Had the President taken this well-deserved action Friday morning, the story would have already been buried under at least four subsequent news cycles, because that’s how many the nation experienced in the last 24 hours.  Think about it, on Friday alone, our fake national news media took us through four major news cycles in a span of less than 24 hours:

  • The James Comey teenage girl diary cycle;
  • The Scooter Libby gets pardoned cycle;
  • The Andrew McCabe is one candor-lacking sonofagun cycle;
  • The Trump bombs Syria cycle.

On top of all that, those of us who live in Texas also went through the Dallas Cowboys cut Dez Bryant and thank God for that news cycle, a story that just a few years ago would have played out over 3-4 days, but in today’s world flashed by between 1:30 and 2:45.

So my continuing advice to Mr. Trump – which has been my advice about the oily Mr. Rosenstein since last June – is to go ahead and fire the clown.  He richly deserves it, and all the threats from Democrats and fake Republicans like Lindsey Graham that there would be terrible consequence for doing so is just so much noise designed to protect the establishment.  At the pace at which events are moving these days, it would all be a forgotten story within hours.

Just ask Paul Ryan, who no doubt thought his announcement that he would not be running for re-election would be huge news for days.  Ryan made his announcement on Wednesday – it seems like weeks ago.

In pardoning Scooter Libby, the President corrected one of the many dark errors left behind by George W. Bush.  Bush commuted Libby’s sentence – an atrocity created by the last out-of-control special counsel, Patrick Fitzgerald – but refused to issue him a full pardon, even though Libby had clearly done nothing wrong.  That Donald Trump had to correct Bush’s error 9 years later will forever remain a stain on Bush’s legacy.

In case you missed it among all the rapidly moving events of Friday, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz made two major moves in the span of a few hours.

The first and most important was the issuance of the report detailing the horrible conduct of the terminally dishonest Andrew McCabe.  The report is thorough and utterly devastating and completely shreds McCabe’s pathetic excuse-making that came in the wake of his well-deserved firing.  It clearly demonstrates that anyone who gave money to McCabe’s legal defense fund is a damn fool.  Awesome.

The second action Horowitz took on Friday was to send a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, notifying him of his intent to issue his report of his 15-month long investigation of DOJ/FBI abuse during the 2016 presidential campaign in May.  If that report is as thorough and devastating as the IG’s report detailing McCabe’s misconduct, then indictments and perp walks should commence shortly thereafter.  If that doesn’t happen, then we’ll know for sure that Attorney General Sessions is also a corrupt actor who needs firing.

In truth, the Deep State actors like Special Counsel Mueller and his best buddy Comey know that report is going to be devastating, which is why they’ve engaged in such a frenzy of activity over the last few weeks.  The goal is to create as much noise, chaos and doubt in the public mind as possible before the report is issued, and then pound on all the false narratives the media is creating right now as a means of distracting public attention from the real criminal activity the IG report will detail.

It won’t work, but it’s basically all they have left at this point.  In fact, it’s all they ever had to begin with.  While the seeds of chaos are sown very rapidly by our corrupt fake news media, their bite is ultimately toothless.

Meanwhile, the wheels of real justice turn very slowly, but the real consequences they ultimately produce are severe and unavoidable.

To paraphrase Kurt Russell in the great western Tombstone, the Horowitz report is coming, and hell’s coming with it.

Just another day in the Horowitz report is coming, and hell’s coming with it America.

That is all.
