We needed a change.., Trump is a case where the situation defines the man.., Could have just as well been somebody else as him..,  The beauty of a Republic is that, left to itself, the power lies in the center and the pendulum will always pass center on its way back if taken too far in either direction.., Trump's election was just a correction..,

 

The job of every thinking citizen is to make sure the pendulum is allowed to swing without outside interference from agenda driven entities.., Privileges and guarantees afforded by the First Amendment are not a free pass to disrupt and change the Constitutional mandated right to an electoral process.., The day that the "fourth estate" is put on a ballot and duly elected is the day I give them a say in the affairs of government.., Until then, objectively report the news or shut the fuck up..,   Make no mistake, Big Media is Big Brother.., Don't anybody fall asleep on guard..,

Yep...

 

Here is a nice read...

 

Comey's revenge is a gun without powder

 

By Gregg Jarrett

 

 

Published May 16, 2017

 

James Comey was lying in wait. 

 

His gun was cocked, he took aim and fired.  But his weapon was empty. 

 

Three months ago, the then-FBI Director met with President Trump.  Following their private conversation, Comey did what he always does –he wrote a memorandum to himself memorializing the conversation.  Good lawyers do that routinely.  

 

Now, only after Comey was fired, the memo magically surfaces in an inflammatory New York Times report which alleges that Mr. Trump asked Comey to end the Michael Flynn investigation.  

 

Those who don’t know the first thing about the law immediately began hurling words like “obstruction of justice”, “high crimes and misdemeanors” and “impeachment“.   Typically, these people don’t know what they don’t know. 

 

Here is what we do know. 

 

Under the law, Comey is required to immediately inform the Department of Justice of any attempt to obstruct justice by any person, even the President of the United States.  Failure to do so would result in criminal charges against Comey.  (18 USC 4 and 28 USC 1361)  He would also, upon sufficient proof, lose his license to practice law. 

 

So, if Comey believed Trump attempted to obstruct justice, did he comply with the law by reporting it to the DOJ?  If not, it calls into question whether the events occurred as the Times reported it. 

Obstruction requires what’s called “specific intent” to interfere with a criminal case.  If Comey concluded, however, that Trump’s language was vague, ambiguous or elliptical, then he has no duty under the law to report it because it does not rise to the level of specific intent.  Thus, no crime.    

 

There is no evidence Comey ever alerted officials at the Justice Department, as he is duty-bound to do.  Surely if he had, that incriminating information would have made its way to the public either by an indictment or, more likely, an investigation that could hardly be kept confidential in the intervening months.

 

Comey’s memo is being treated as a “smoking gun” only because the media and Democrats, likely prompted by Comey himself, are now peddling it that way.

They need to find a safe place, preferably a cool one where snowflakes won't melt.
