For whatever reasons FBI director James Comey has really stepped in it this time and he’s catching it from both Republican and Democrats.
It’s obvious considering Comey’s career he’s a well educated man, but it’s also apparent that education alone doesn’t guarantee common sense.
Somebodies got some ‘splaining to do and the number of explanations is seriously limited.
I’m not onboard, at least for the moment, that Comey made a deliberate attempt to undermine the election though a growing number believe that is the case – some going so far as to draw comparisons to Russian attempts or speculating that should Trump win Comey will be elevated to the position of USAG.
I’ve blogged about Wikileaks Assange entrance into the game and characterized it as motivated by a personal dislike of Clinton rather than the result of a whistle blowers well intended desire to inform and reform.
For those who disagree with that I’ll ask the question if Assange is all about some civic sense of duty why then hasn’t he also gone after Trump?
Secondly if Russia is behind the hacks are they Assange’s source and if so is he in fact colluding with them?
It should be obvious to anyone who has read this blog that I’m no fan of Hillary Clinton anymore than I am of her knuckle dragging opponent – but I also believe the outcome of elections should be free of foreign intrigue or party centric manipulation.
Like I said Comey’s got some ‘spaining to do much the same as Lucy was often called upon to do in the old television series I Love Lucy that can be seen on youtube.
There’s talk that Comey may have committed a criminal act as defined by the Hatch Act – I can’t speak to that but when it comes to accusations and explanations I’m not jumping on the first horse out of the gate.
If a serious violation of protocol or a potential criminal act has taken place, or it can be demonstrated that Comey’s actions have directly impacted the outcome of the election then the remedy may well be for Comey to step down.
Trump being the fear mongering idiot he is immediately announced the Clinton email investigation had been reopened, when in fact it hasn’t – and the fear mongering “patriots” who support him immediately took it as holy writ envisioning Trump to be like Moses descending from Mount Sinai.
I’ve read that Moses had some kind of speech impediment and a follower by the name of Aaron became his voice.
It’s obvious that Trump has a variety of impediments, the least of which is the ability to speak coherently, one can only assume that his surrogates have assumed the role of Aaron.
