I’m going to preface the following by saying I’m not a fan of Trey Gowdy or his usual cohorts, but as readers of the blog are aware I have in the past said “credit where credit is due” on a variety of subjects and individuals.
And so it is when it comes to the below link “credit where credit is due” related to questions and points Gowdy made to FBI director Comey.
The key word is “reasonable”, a word initially employed by Comey in his assessment and decision not to bring charges against Hillary Clinton following a year long investigation of her email practices.
I would say it’s reasonable to assume an individual would not repeatedly lie as has been clearly evidenced Clinton did if they did not know or believed they had nothing to hide.
Comey in my opinion completely undermined his decision not to seek an indictment in answering Gowdy’s questions and ultimately will fuel talk of a “fix”.
Now there’s a lot of ways to spin what’s transpired over the last couple of days, and both parties will be doing their best to do so while heading in opposite directions, so let’s set that aside for the moment and focus on the issue of credibility – whether Clinton has any or not?
I’d say the obvious answer is she has none when even the head of the FBI admits she lied repeatedly.
Should that be grounds for a “reasonable” person to withdraw their support for her candidacy?
Again I ‘d say her proven penchant for lying throughout her career and her pandering to corporations is more than enough reason to do so.
But then this has been a campaign season best referred to as bordering on schizophrenia with reason having little if anything to do with it.
What amounts to a mob mentality to elect a woman, not a trustworthy woman capable of elevating the office, just any woman.
Or a completely delusional egomaniacal loud mouth “outsider” who has become a global laughingstock.
Reasonable? Reason has gone the way of common sense, it has become an endangered species.
This isn’t going to go away anytime soon – in fact it will probably have the same longevity as those eighteen missing minutes of Nixon tapes and for the same reason, the appearance of evil with a truck load of circumstantial evidence and false exculpatory statements made under oath.
