FBI Investigation

Do Not Shed A Tear for This West Wing

One of the more amusing aspects of this travesty we call an administration has been watching the media and Democrats feel sorry for Jeff Sessions over the way Donald Trump has been treating him. Sessions, they rightly point out, from the beginning was one of his most loyal supporters. How could he humiliate him like

Semantics

Let’s assume your boss calls you into their office, tells you to close the door and sit down. If you’re like me, you’re probably thinking, “Oh, shit, what’d I do now?” But let’s leave my insecurity out of it for now, shall we? Your boss hands you a piece a paper with a name and

Call It A Night, Hillary

There’s this scene from the seminal movie A Night To Remember where Kenneth More’s character, Second Officer Charles Lightoller, is having a discussion with a passenger in one of the Titanic’s lifeboats as the rescue ship Carpathia arrives on the scene to pick up the survivors, and it goes like this: Passenger: “Would that be

Now It’s Mueller’s Investigation

The announcement by Rod Rosenstein that he has appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to take over the Russia investigation is encouraging, and for two reasons: First, it’s a ray of hope for millions of Americans who were rightly concerned that the wheels were coming off this democracy. Two, it’s a thorough rebuke to this

What Schumer and the Dems Need To Do Regarding Comey’s Replacement

It’s nice that Chuck Schumer is drawing his own red line by demanding that any new FBI director not be a “partisan politician” from “either party,” and that voting on James Comey’s replacement might be contingent upon the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate Donald Trump and his administration. Unfortunately for Schumer, Democrats only

The Coup Begins

Let me state this as bluntly as I can. If you think for a moment that Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey because of the way he handled the Clinton email server investigation last year, I would strongly advise you to stay out of Vegas for the foreseeable future; you’ll lose your shirt and

Comey Finally Grows A Pair

No doubt it may seem like too little too late up in Chappaqua, but FBI Director James Comey finally put Donald Trump in his place. Responding to Trump’s ridiculous claim that Barack Obama wiretapped his penthouse suite at Trump Tower, Comey asked the Department of Justice to “publicly refute” the claim saying it is “false

James Comey’s October Surprise

So much for drip, drip. FBI Director James Comey, with eleven days to go before the election, delivered a giant kick in the teeth to Hillary Clinton that might not cost her the presidency, but could severely undermine her administration before it even begins. To be clear, what Comey did was stunning and beneath contempt.

Eyes Wide unShut

So now that Bernie Sanders has finally gotten off his pity pot and endorsed Hillary Clinton – big yawn – the only two questions left to be answered are: 1. Who will she choose as her running mate? and 2. Why should I or any progressive support her in November? As far as the first

The Not So “Good News” for Hillary Clinton

Listening to FBI Director James Comey at his press conference, I was reminded of that old “good news / bad news” joke which seems rather apropos here. Doctor: I have some good news and some bad news. Patient: What’s the good news? Doctor: You have 24 hours to live. Patient: What’s the bad news then?
