Devil Take the Hindmost

James Comey, former FBI Director, is one very strange individual.  Go here to read the rest about the above image that Comey tweeted.  So now Comey is concerned about the rep of the FBI?  Perhaps he should have been concerned about the reputation of the FBI when he was prostituting it during the last administration.  The more we learn about the Clinton e-mail investigation, the more we realize that it was an elaborate dog and pony show, orchestrated by Comey, with no intention of ever  bringing before the DOJ a recommendation for prosecution.  Ironically, Comey’s pretense of performing a serious investigation probably ended up hurting Clinton worse than a prosecution would have, although there is zero chance of the Obama administration ever having initiated such a prosecution.  This type of garbage is why I find all the fake horror about Donald Trump hard to take seriously.  Smarmy con-men like Comey are held up as dedicated public servants by the media and the party establishments, and much of the real horror about Donald Trump, at least from political insiders, is that in his boastful, crude and bumbling manner, he is revealing that the Wizards behind the veils are, at best, no better than he is.  Whatever else is fake about Trump, his calling Washington a swamp is right on target.

  1. Comey was the man responsible for assigning the Valerie Plame affair to Patrick FitzGerald’s office. The Mueller investigation is a consequence of his scheming. Rosenstein was the man who appointed Mueller. Comey, Mueller, and Rosenstein were all creatures of the Justice Department promoted within (or recruited after time on the outside) by the Bush Administration. Mueller recruited 30% of this legal team from a tiny sliver of the legal profession: 4-digit Democratic Party donors. Now we learn that one FBI agent who worked on the bogus investigation of Clinton’s e-mails was also recruited by Mueller, but later benched when intramural correspondence came to light revealing that he and his mistress (who’d put in time in Mueller’s office) were both Clinton partisans. Given what Mueller was happy to tolerate on his staff, the content of those texts must be pretty amusing.

    I turn on the tube last night and Meet the Press has Kennedy-retainer Doris Kearns Goodwin, a couple of Republicans from the Capitol Hill nexus, and some blackademic from Princeton and they’re all yammering about the grand significance of Gen. Flynn’s guilty plea, Trump’s mental stability and how the Democrats will be running on impeachment in 2018. Flynn pled guilty to a process crime (no surprise there to those who’ve observed the federal prosecutocracy) and has supposedly had to sell his house to pay legal bills. It appears the Democratic Party is hoping to manufacture more process crimes

    All of this looks like a scam cooked up by the uniparty legal establishment.

  2. Andrew McCarthy, lapsed prosecutor, offers this:

    Nevertheless, as I explained in connection with George Papadopoulos (who also pled guilty in Mueller’s investigation for lying to the FBI), when a prosecutor has a cooperator who was an accomplice in a major criminal scheme, the cooperator is made to plead guilty to the scheme. This is critical because it proves the existence of the scheme. In his guilty-plea allocution (the part of a plea proceeding in which the defendant admits what he did that makes him guilty), the accomplice explains the scheme and the actions taken by himself and his co-conspirators to carry it out. This goes a long way toward proving the case against all of the subjects of the investigation. That is not happening in Flynn’s situation. Instead, like Papadopoulos, he is being permitted to plead guilty to a mere process crime. A breaking report from ABC News indicates that Flynn is prepared to testify that Trump directed him to make contact with the Russians — initially to lay the groundwork for mutual efforts against ISIS in Syria. That, however, is exactly the sort of thing the incoming national-security adviser is supposed to do in a transition phase between administrations. If it were part of the basis for a “collusion” case arising out of Russia’s election meddling, then Flynn would not be pleading guilty to a process crime — he’d be pleading guilty to an espionage conspiracy. Understand: If Flynn’s conversations with the Russian ambassador had evinced the existence of a quid pro quo collusion arrangement — that the Trump administration would ease or eliminate sanctions on Russia as a payback for Russia’s cyber-espionage against the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic party — it would have been completely appropriate, even urgently necessary, for the Obama Justice Department to investigate Flynn. But if that had happened, Mueller would not be permitting Flynn to settle the case with a single count of lying to FBI agents. Instead, we would be looking at a major conspiracy indictment, and Flynn would be made to plead to far more serious offenses if he wanted a deal — cooperation in exchange for sentencing leniency. To the contrary, for all the furor, we have a small-potatoes plea in Flynn’s case — just as we did in Papadopoulos’s case, despite extensive “collusion” evidence. Meanwhile, the only major case Mueller has brought, against former Trump-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and an associate, has nothing to do with the 2016 election. It is becoming increasingly palpable that, whatever “collusion” means, there was no actionable, conspiratorial complicity by the Trump campaign in the Kremlin’s machinations.

    I don’t think partisan Democrats, the news media, and Republican Capitol Hill krill are actually getting what they want out of this exercise in lawfare, their hopes notwithstanding.

  3. Correct Art. Incoming administrations having foreign contacts are expected. Foreign reps paying their respects to a major party candidate for President prior to an election is also normal. The Brits did this with Trump right before the election which once again underlined the esteem that I have for the prescience of MI5.

  4. Regarding the photo collage in this post, I initially saw FBI agents standing between the public and the criminal, indeed facing the criminal. The idea of butts facing the public did not occur to me till I read the tweets. That said, the real butt I see in this is Comey, not FBI agents whose reputation his behavior has tarnished. Ironic that the symbol of his Democratic masters is the ass, i.e., jackass.

  5. Unfortunately the corruption that we see in the Justice Department and FBI was enabled by the incompetence and cowardice of the Republican Party. How was this group allowed to stay in positions of authority after the refusal to charge Clinton left no doubt that the investigators were compromised? The entire group should have been sent packing after the inauguration and an investigation started. How did Jeff Sessions, who was in the Senate Judiciary committee, not know about the intrigue within our federal investigative agencies?

    Why do the Republicans hold themselves to a standard where even an unsubstantiated allegation is disqualifying, yet there is no standard that seems disqualifying for a Democrat. Roy Moore denies accusations and there is no corroborating evidence but the accusers are determined to be credible and the mob calls him disqualified to run for the senate. With photographic evidence and an admission of guilt the Democrat is referred to the ethics committee for an investigation.

    I live in North Alabama and have been following the Roy Moore case and the find this unfounded character assassination astonishing. Allegations were made weeks before an election for events that occurred 40 years ago that were never previous reported. The accusations were outside of established legal methods for evidence gathering and the accused has not had an opportunity to pull records and interview other witnesses so he could respond to each accusation. So far the documentation of court proceedings seems inconsistent with the accusations, and the only documentation produced by an accuser appears to be forged. Multiple witnesses have contradicted the mall banning and teen girl harassment rumors and there are reports that Roy Moore prosecuted the accuser’s brother for drug trafficking. All we know about the dating of young women is that they were above the age of consent when Roy Moore was in his 30’s. And there are no allegations of misbehavior with physical contact limited to a consensual kiss.

    It seems obvious to me that Roy Moore is either innocent or there is not enough evidence to prove behavior that would disqualify him from office. If there is any other accusations or evidence it can be submitted after the election. If there is anything credible Roy Moore would be removed from office and another election called. Since most conservative leaders have already judged Roy Moore guilty and barred the door leaving him to face the wolf packs alone, I doubt anyone will support keeping him in office if any substantial accusation is proven true.

    I’m more concerned about what will happen with 2 years of Doug Jones than what may or may not have happened 40 years ago. The Catholic Church considers cooperating with abortion as a mortal sin and Doug Jones is a radical supporter of abortion up to birth. He would also oppose the appointment of conservative judges to the Supreme and Federal Courts. He will likely oppose conscious protection for health care workers because it may limit abortion on demand. He is opposed to immigration restrictions or securing our borders.
    Even before the accusations were made the cooperation between Luther Strange and Mitch McConnell to manipulate the elections in Alabama as well as corruption with Alabama State Taxes going to Bob Corker were exposed.

    With these allegations I now questioning is the fitness for continued positions and future aspirations some I previously held in high regard within the Republican Party. Fox News is also exposed as supporter of the establishment wing of the Republican Party.

    – Is Attorney General Sessions fit to be the top law enforcement officer of our nation when he finds accusations credible without examining evidence or allowing the accused to defend himself? Since this was his senate seat being filled perhaps he should have recused himself and declined comment.
    – Likewise most of the potential future candidates have displayed political cowardice by withdrawing support for Roy Moore instead of insisting upon due process. I don’t think I will ever have the same regard for Senators: Cruz, Lee, and Rubio. We should pay close attention to have the courage to turn this around and campaign for Roy Moore during the final week of this campaign.

    Fox news has joined the lynch mob, Sean Hannity’s amateurish interrogation using vague allegations confused and tripped up Roy Moore. The only Fox News Commentators who have remained neutral are Tucker Carson and Shannon Bream. Last night Fox news had a commentator from Al.com; Without disclaiming that it is a newspaper owned by Northeastern Company which has endorsed Doug Moore.

    Now that there is good reason for further special prosecutor investigations Will anyone hold the FBI and Justice Department to the same standards of evidence gathering, no knock midnight raids with guns drawn for cooperating white collar defendants.

    Before tweeting bible verses Mr. Commey should consider that both Danton and Robespierre died at the guillotine after being consumed by the Reign of Terror they created.

    Perhaps before using excessive evidence gathering for intimidation, Mr. Muller should watch the film “A Man for All Seasons”. Since he may soon be investigated, will his investigators use the same techniques that he employed against Mr. Mannford and General Flynn?

  6. the republicans are the submissives and the dems are the doms,,,,just look at the republican faces,,,do you see strong faces, intimidating faces, strong voices with cohones, NO,,, YOU SEE WEAKNESS , numbers don’t matter,,,,the republicans are meesquiteers up against the JUNK YARD DOG DEMS,,,,sessions is no match for maxine waters in the chutzpah dept.

  7. Trump…bumbling? I admit he should tell Mr. and Mrs. Kushner to go back to NYC and stay there, but compared to Billy Bob Clinton or the Obumbler, he runs a well oiled machine.

    This entire Trump-Russia thing was an invention of John Podesta. The Democrats still can’t get over the fact that they lost and that they, not the GOP (spineless as they are) are going to get their clocks cleaned for failing to repeal Obumblercare. The Establishment GOP has long been a bunch of sissies and wusses, anxious to have the Washington Compost like them and to be invited to the inside the Beltway wine, cheese and cocaine parties.
