12 thoughts on Comey’s testimony to the Senate Intel Committee

James Comey, former Director of the FBI until he was fired by President Trump earlier this year, testified before the US Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday. 1. Donald Trump somehow managed to not tweet during James Comey’s testimony. I don’t know if someone hid his phone, if someone applied reverse-psychology and said he wouldn’t be able to help himself, or something else. 2. Comey says in the days after he was fired, he was confused by the changing narrative from the White House as to why he was let go.…

Comey and Democratic hypocrisy

“All I can tell you is that the FBI Director has no credibility” Representative Maxine Waters, January 13, 2017. As our good man Harry Caines has recently pontificated, he believes Donald Trump just took one more step in a lunatic, Stalinesque stroll to the madhouse by firing James Comey. Apologies to Harry’s Ph.D. and rigorous study of history, but let’s take a step back and look a bit more objectively at these events for a minute.

The Mero Moment: Comey for President – July 7, 2016

Not that her political coffin needed a final nail in my opinion, Hillary Clinton had that nail hammered home by FBI Director James Comey’s report and testimony before Congress regarding Clinton’s email scandal.

Just as…

As FBI Director Jim Comey announced last week, no criminal actions were indicated by their long investigation of  Clinton’s actions regarding unsecured e-mail servers while serving as Secretary of State. The average American is being asked to swallow hard and move on. Nothing to see here. The Clinton campaign tweeted that they were glad to see the matter finally settled. But has anything been settled, other…

Politically Speaking: The FBI on Clinton, polls, and veep watch – July 5, 2016

To the surprise of only the adorably naive, the FBI recommended not indicting Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server where she sent and received classified information. Here were some of FBI Director Comey’s statements from the press conference. “Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.” If you didn’t intend to speed, you shouldn’t…
