THE DEMS GAIN YET ANOTHER REP SCALP
...but this time it will backfire on their darling Hillary
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
As Washington scribes look to make sense of FBI Director Comey’s sacking there’s a less obvious reason that Trump needed to move on him, and it may well put Hillary in jail.
We must go back to last July for the back story when James Comey testified giving root and branch reasons to the Senate why the result of the Hillary Clinton investigation should be handed to DoJ prosecutors or that she should face a Grand Jury.
Comey then inexplicably said there was insufficient evidence that she intended to commit an offence, and that he would not recommend prosecution. Well, he can’t recommend a prosecution anyway... that’s not his role!
This was a mistake and left an army of FBI investigators and most of the US gobsmacked because Comey was clearly usurping the role of the DoJ and the Attorney General, Loretta Lynch. The FBI cannot recommend prosecution of anyone.
But here’s the nub... how could Comey have confidence in AG Loretta Lynch who was clearly in the Clintons’ pocket?
And this was proved by her suspicious and highly inappropriate 40 minute tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton. The FBI underlings were convinced Hillary Clinton should be indicted by the Attorney General, but that was never going to happen under Lynch.
Comey (a Republican) was left in the invidious position of potentially deciding an election himself by saying the FBI’s investigation deserved recommending prosecution via the AG’s Office.
Comey understandably tried to remove himself from that position by not passing on this explosive evidence to his boss, AG, Loretta Lynch, (above) saying there were “no grounds” for an indictment.
I believe Trump thought Hillary would retire to the woods and not be heard of again but earlier this week Hillary told CNN’s pet Lefty, Christiane Amanpour (below) that she intended to lead the “resistance” movement to unseat and impeach Trump.
She also indicated she would resurrect her infamous Clinton Foundation. This led to a belief that Hillary intended running again in 2020. I reckon the Dems might have something to say about that.
Two days later Trump fired Comey paving the way for an incoming FBI Director (nominated by Trump) to now pass on the FBI evidence to a brand new DoJ and brand new Attorney General.
Comey’s attempt to disengage the FBI from effectively deciding the election has ironically cost him his job.
Now Hillary is fair game for all those who want her prosecuted.
This is another Trump masterstroke that will allow him to govern effectively without the Clintons’ and Obama’s divergent resistance campaign? It should also put to bed the dysfunctional Dems’ crazy notion that Putin cost them the White House.
Make no mistake this is a tectonic quake that will shake Washington to its foundations and maybe ensure Trump of four more years.
And now that Ralph Blewitt is returning to give evidence against Julia Gillard, we will need to keep an eye on both incredibly similar developments.
