Anyone who can enrage Congresswoman Maxine Waters to the point that she actually shuts her visibly frothing mouth, throws up her hands and simply says he has no credibility can’t be all bad. For the California Democrat, who watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) declared to be one of “the Most Corrupt Members of Congress, to label anyone as lacking in credibility is amusing. Maybe Trump should keep Comey around – just for laughs, when he wants to watch a Democrat turn into Linda Blair.
The Wall Street Journal is calling for his resignation, so it seems Comey still has the gift, that of angering people on both sides of the political aisle. They labeled him as “too political for a position that’s supposed to be apolitical.” That might be a bit of a stretch since nobody has gotten the straight story on what happened with the Clinton investigation. The IG may finally provide us some help in that regard.
The reporter ticks off the list of problems with Comey, which include a current Inspector General’s investigation into the details of and the decision to not recommend prosecution of Hillary Clinton and the various communications and interactions with others that followed. The good news is that the issue of the Clinton corruption and espionage offenses has not been forgotten about and set aside. The Democrats, barring a pardon for their criminal former candidate, are making it more likely that the issue will not be forgotten, that justice may eventually work its way back to a focus on her and do so after her get out of jail free card has left office.
Democrats are even more angry because Comey didn’t join them in blaming Russia for the sloppy cyber habits of the Clintons in every regard or assign them with the blame for what could have been internal leaks.
It’s interesting in the clip that Angus King, supposedly an Independent, is labeled in the graphic and referred to in the narrative as a Democrat. The charade may not be producing its desired effect, whatever that might be. His nasty attitude is certainly 100% Democrat.
Now Democrats are upset because Comey briefed President-elect Trump on the nonsense “Russia bedroom” dossier last week. He briefed Obama as well but they apparently aren’t upset about that, just where they can worth themselves up into a lather over the President-elect.
