Democrats’ hypocritical Comey-firing fury

Posted by on May 11, 2017 at 8:06 am

A White House spokeswoman was hardly wrong when she said Wednesday that if a President Hillary Clinton had fired FBI Director James Comey, Democrats would now be dancing in the streets.

After all, until Tuesday evening, Comey was Public Enemy No. 1 in the liberal playbook, a partisan shill whose last-minute disclosures on Hillary’s e-mails supposedly swept Donald Trump into the White House.

Now they’re calling him America’s hero and warning ominously that his abrupt sacking has propelled the country into a full-blown constitutional crisis.
Complete nonsense — but typical left-wing hypocrisy.

Any crisis is purely political, not constitutional. Trump had every legal right to fire Comey, and plenty of good reason to have done so long ago — as top Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and his predecessor, Harry Reid, would have agreed.

That Trump waited this long — and compounded the problem by the clumsy way in which the firing was handled — speaks to this administration’s disorganization.

But it does not suggest a Nixonian coverup of the FBI investigation into Russia’s meddling in the US campaign, which will proceed (like the House and Senate probes) no matter who heads the FBI.

Full story.

    The local AM Das Radio had some interesting takes.
    It said Comey rubbed the rhubarb of the senate wrong the other day with his I’ll investigate anyone at anytime attitude.
    At one point he answered I’ll be here for another six and a half years.
    There were also examples of bungled handling of cases such as Rolling Stone’s favorite rockstar bombers in Boston.
    The dastardly evil *gasp* Russians warned about the bombers more than once with no action from Comey.
    My favorite part…the soundbites of Dirty Harry and Bolshevik Bernie saying Comey should be fired.
