Some Senate Democrats are threatening my daughter Sarah with an indictment for stating something about James Comey that’s long been a matter of public record. They claim she’s trying to poison Comey’s reputation with grand jurors. I can see why he might be worried about what grand jurors think of him, but it’s hardly her fault.
I would point out that it’s the things we all already know that Comey has done that have poisoned his own reputation. This isn’t the first time Democrats have tried to make a legal case against Republicans for stating either known facts or an honest personal opinion based on known facts. But then, having lost the House, Senate and White House, one of the few weapons Democrats have left is abuse of the legal system, via overblown ethics charges, lawsuits and partisan judges. That’s why we’re seeing Trump sued over every action he takes. Democrats may have few elected offices, but they have an overabundance of lawyers.
Claiming that it’s somehow scandalous to say Comey might have broken the law by leaking sensitive documents created as part of his duties at the FBI to the media (something he admitted to under oath) is like claiming you’re spreading rumors by calling him “tall.”
It reminds me of JFK’s favorite joke: Did you hear about the Russian who got 25 years in prison for standing in front of the Kremlin and yelling, “Khrushchev is an idiot!?” He got 5 years for insulting Khrushchev and 20 years for revealing state secrets.
