In March, 2004, Vice President Dick Cheney took time out from tying widows to railroad tracks and ordered feckless Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez and White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card to go to the hospital where Attorney General John Ashcroft was gravely ill.
The henchmen arrived to find Ashcroft weak and incoherent. Darth Cheney had ordered them to get Ashcroft’s signature in order to reauthorize President George Bush’s warrant-less surveillance program.
Learning of this, James Comey, then U.S. Deputy Attorney General, raced to the hospital. Arriving in time, he found Abbott and Costello forcing a pen into the barely conscious Ashcroft’s hand with the intent of forcing his signature onto the re authorization. Comey put an end to it. For this, he was rightfully lauded.
Fortunately for America Ashcroft survived and saved the nation by putting drapes over the nude statues in the Justice building. But enough reminiscing about the happy-go-lucky Bush-Cheney years.
Comey, now the Director of the FBI, eleven days before the election, saw fit to ignore the FBI’s long standing tradition of not interfering in Presidential elections by trying to tie, without any evidence, the emails of Anthony (check out my underwear) Weiner and his wife, who is Hillary Clinton’s top aide, to Clinton.
The Director seems to have made his choice in the election, perhaps in hopes of retaining his job. Trump could keep Comey on if he gets Vladimir Putin’s permission.
I have no doubt that patriotic Tea-Party Congressman Trey Gowdy will take a moment off from befouling Christianity, get off his cross and investigate Comey’s actions.
Perhaps Comey didn’t mean to influence the election. Perhaps he just had a lapse of judgment. Sort of like Hillary Clinton’s in deciding to use private servers. No doubt Comey would receive the same fair treatment she did from noted hair style icon Gowdy.
Whether Comey intended to or not, he has unjustly damaged the only candidate who’s qualified to be President, the only candidate with a shred of decency and the only candidate who isn’t a sociopath.
