No One is Above the Law!
In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a war going on. No, not the farcical airstrikes on Syria, but the war against the truth, i.e. James Comey. Trump, the Republican National Committee, and the FOX network have colluded to undermine this man of integrity and professionalism. Comey is honorable, ethical and a moral man who has served his country for over thirty- one (31) years. That’s what you do when you’re guilty as sin. You shoot the messenger! You call the messenger an “untruthful slim ball,” and “slippery,” among other things. You call the highest law enforcement agency in our country a “den of thieves” and “low lifes.”
TRUMP HAS taken extraordinary measures to undermine James Comey. He and the Republican National Committee have created a website called LyingComey.com. This is unprecedented by a political party who represents all Republican elected officials and their candidates. It appears to be a desperate gamble on their part and it proves that Trump and the Republican Party are one and the same.
TRUMP, HIS staff, and the talking heads at Fox have not presented one piece of evidence that Trump is innocent. Instead, these Trumpsters are maligning a man who has had a stellar reputation in all facets of his life. Trump, on the other hand, has a reputation of being a liar, a serial adultery, possesses no class, a self-admitted sexual assaulter of women, loves chaos, and lacks ethics in his personal and business life. Comey’s account of what happened in the meeting with Trump and Trump’s crass denials boils down to this. If you were on a jury, who would you believe?
LAST YEAR I wrote that James Comey should be fired for re-opening Hillary Clinton’s email case on the eve of the election. It is normal to want retaliation for a person whom you felt had thrown the election in favor of someone despicable. Besides, what else was I to think? Comey was a life-time Republican! However, I have since listened to Comey’s explanation and find it credible and truthful. Besides the fact, Comey would have been drawn and quartered by these same people had he with-held this information. A month later I wrote that Comey was a victim of a ‘Power Predator,’ namely Donald Trump. Still, I find myself day dreaming about what our country would be like today had there never been Russian interference in our election and Comey had not erred in releasing the information. Just think! We could sleep sound at night.
NO COLLUSION? Two weeks-ago Trump released that Mueller had stated to his lawyers that Trump was not a ‘target’ of the Russia investigation, but a ‘subject.’ There’s not a hair’s difference in those terms but some saw it as a vindication of Trump and called for celebration. Perhaps that’s what you would think if you get all your news from the Trump (FOX) network. The fact is Mueller never said Trump was cleared of Russian collusion in our election.
IN FACT, this past week it appears that Mueller may have everything he needs to prove collusion between Trump’s campaign and probably Trump himself. The FBI raided the office of Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal attorney and “fixer.” Cohen is the one who paid off all Trump’s women and he knows where all the bodies are buried, so-to-speak. Also, it has been reported, yet another allegation in the Steele dossier was proven to be true. In the Steele dossier he said Michael Cohen visited Prague and met with Putin allies to figure out how to provide undeniable cash payments to the Russian hackers. Cohen and Trump have vehemently denied Cohen had ever been to Prague, using Cohen’s passport as proof. Turns out, you can go into Prague through Germany without a passport. It has been reported that Mueller has found proof this trip DID happen. If he has, it’s all over but Trump’s shouting.
Breaking New! I interrupt this column to tell you that Trump filed a Motion with the New York court Sunday night to keep the Justice Department from viewing and possessing the documents retrieved from the raid on Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, and that he (Trump) be allowed to take possession of them. He is citing attorney/client privilege. One can only assume these documents reveal a level of financial fraud and sleaze we cannot imagine.
REMEMBER, “No one is above the law!” Cue up that Jaws theme again! “dun, dun dunnnnnnnn dun dun dun dun dun.”
