When I used to do my radio show, the announcer would come back from a commercial break with the slogan: “He’s conservative...but he’s not mad at anybody.”
In recent commentaries, I’ve made flip remarks about Andrew McCabe leaving the FBI to collect his pension, just as Lois Lerner of the IRS is collecting hers. Well, Lerner gets to keep hers, but it turns out that McCabe’s pension is very much in play.
The “Russia” investigation goes on and on, with no evidence of collusion by the Trump team but nevertheless with no end in sight. At this point, people who are trying to do their jobs in the White House and in Congress, from the President on down, are understandably impatient.
ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN was on Turner Classic Movies a few days ago, and just thinking about that film brings back all the intrigue of the Watergate scandal.
We can be Republican or Democrat or Independent, but above all, we should simply be Americans. What binds us together is not specific policies or political candidates, but a commitment to a Constitution that limits the power of government over our lives and protects our fundamental liberties.
House Intelligence Committee Democrat Adam Schiff is protesting yesterday's party-line vote to release the Nunes memo on alleged FBI surveillance abuse without letting the FBI and DOJ vet it to censor anything that might compromise their sources and methods.
When Peter Strzok and Lisa Page of the FBI exchanged politically-charged texts about an “insurance policy,” presumably to keep (or, if came to that, kick) Donald Trump out of the Oval Office, they referenced a meeting in “Andy’s office.”
If Peter Strzok and Lisa Page of the FBI had Donald Trump under questioning, you can bet they’d be “loaded for bear.” If they could get away with it, they’d probably grill him under bright lights, using isolation (no lawyer) and maybe sleep deprivation. At least, that’s the impression I get from their texting.
What do you know? The dog that ate the FBI’s homework coughed it up! Just days after the FBI claimed it couldn’t turn over text messages between rabidly anti-Trump paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page due to a “tech glitch” that had eaten all the records, they’ve already been recovered.
When we say, “drain the swamp” at the Justice Department and FBI, it’s not a swipe at the integrity of the entire intelligence community, though many Democrats are trying desperately to portray it as such.
