LET’S AVOID RUSHING TO A FOOLISH CONCLUSION

For a week and a half we’ve heard a trickle of information and a flood of speculation regarding the dismissal of James Comey. The social media meme thread includes questions and accusations involving coercion, bribery, extortion and private threats.

First the Democrats began crying for Comey’s head because he caused Hillary’s presidential demise with his public announcements. Next they gloated and praised his performance for a while after he publicly announced the conclusion of an investigation into Email Gate. Then they turned on him like rabid and starving rats when he stood before another microphone to proclaim his investigators found new evidence and he was reopening the case.

James Comey was the Federal Bureau of Investigations Director from September 4, 2013 until his last day on May 9, 2017. Comey’s career includes government affiliation from 2002 when he became a U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York and a stint as United States Deputy Attorney General under George W. Bush. Thereafter, for eight years, he chose the private sector where he was employed as council for Lockheed Martin and Bridgewater Associates before returning to public service as Director of the FBI.

According to his bio, Comey was a registered Republican until 2016. At that time, he changed his party affiliation to Independent. Was this move made due to distrust for the Republican nominee at that time?

As of this publication, it has been eleven days since Comey’s discharge and there still is no definitive explanation for why it happened when it did, only conjecture and opinion. Yet, depending on viewpoint or political bent, there is angst and anger on behalf of both Trump supporters and “the Resistance”. Half want the president to be impeached (but that started about midnight EST on November 8, 2016) while the other side supportively praises his actions.

Neither side has sufficient information to know whether the move was warranted at that time, prior to then or not at all. There seems to be nary a fact available. All judgments at this point appear to be made on innuendo, speculation, allegations, wants and wishes. It is simply another opportunity for the resistance movement to call for resistance. News stations and print media claiming unbiased reporting are all knee deep in the hog pen mire that is national politics today. Social media offers highly charged opinions which become gospel as they twine their way through the web to hand-held electronic devices.

It is said that James Comey, like his predecessor, wrote down the important points of meetings with ranking political officials in case he needed them to testify before congress. Is the wording of those notes influenced by his emotions, fears or ambitions? Does he also have notes of meetings with President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch, Adam Schiff, Elija Cummings and others? Can/will they be subpoenaed? Will the notes become a tell-all memoir worth millions of dollars to a publisher as with most of the recent politicians upon leaving the political arena? We’ll have to wait to see.

Echoes for a special counsel resounded through the halls of congress and microphones of the media until one was appointed. Shouldn’t they also call for special prosecutors and independent investigators to look into such things as Eric Holder and his Fast and Furious scheme and the Clintons (both) including sexual assault, national security breaches, the Clinton foundation – fraud and influence peddling. Perhaps someone should take a serious look at President Obama and why he made public announcements of troop movements and assault planning days, weeks and months before they occurred. Do you remember Extortion 17? How about seeking more information regarding how it was that James Comey took it upon himself not to prosecute Hillary Clinton? This decision usurped the authority of his boss, Loretta Lynch, though she didn’t object.

I’m all for a special prosecutor and Robert Mueller has the potential to do the job. Let’s find out the whole story about Russian involvement into our election process. Let’s seek the truth about all aspects of government. Let’s quiet the whining. If there is need, censure or even impeach and remove the president. If nothing is found we can announce the idiocy of the call.

As we’re spending thousands of person hours (*note the PC reference), frittering resources and tens of millions of dollars with independent investigations and special prosecutors trying to prove negatives, why not look into the ties between Adam Schiff and organized crime? Perhaps there should be a special prosecutor investigating Eric Stalwell and his connection to child trafficking, enslavement, prostitution and surgical mutilation. There is currently nothing tying these men to the crimes indicated, but how do we know for sure no crimes were committed without a thorough investigation? You’ve now seen their names linked to crimes and both are bred from the corrupt politics of California.

If there’s truly an interest in election tampering or fraud or influencing an election, why isn’t there more attention given to illegal aliens and felons and dead people voting or computers changing votes? Where is the outrage about people voting two and three times in different districts under different names? Where is the concern about Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and the DNC denying Bernie Sanders equal opportunity?

Who can assure, in this politically charged environment, that even Robert Mueller is unbiased and able to do the job without malice? After all, Director Comey was heralded as “as honest as they come” until he became known as corrupt.

    Bob, there’s a lot here, that I believe is right on the mark, however, according to the law, the President can fire the FBI Director for any reason, at any time. Also, If I’m correct, if the special investigator comes across other leads to other people involved, the investigation could produce unwanted interest in Democrats and their associations.

    Also, Bob, and this idea is way out there, could the special counsel be one of President Trumps sneaky ways of being several steps ahead of the media and others, waiting for them to catch up and Checkmate them? Also, you know my background as a Navy SWO for 20-years, and the tour I had as Ops Officer of the major West deception unit. Is this all a deception ops?
