At the Pleasure of Himself

From The American Spectator:
Let’s cut through the nonsense: Comey, not Trump, is the villain in this idiotic saga. In all of his heavy-breathing hints and leaks, Comey let people think that the president was under investigation. The scandal is not that a guilty president asked the FBI director to treat him as innocent, but that an innocent president was treated as guilty by an FBI director drunk on his own rectitude.

One has to laugh at the audacity of an FBI director who violates the confidences of others casting himself as the arbiter of honesty and integrity. Trump’s instincts about Comey were absolutely correct. He is the kind of ruling-class creep who takes secret notes on presidents, then leaks them to the press, all while expecting a pat on the head from the great and good for his “independence.” Who elected Comey to such an exalted position? Comey claimed he understood that he served at the “pleasure” of the president. But this was BS. He served at his own pleasure, and his remarks were designed to pander to the undemocratic opportunism of the Democrats, under which the least accountable figures (Supreme Court justices, FBI directors, “career” civil servants) are increasingly deified.

Trump did not obstruct justice. How could he have? There was no investigation to obstruct, as Comey himself pathetically acknowledges. The partisan jackasses at CNN had promised that Comey was going to refute Trump’s claim that Comey told him on three separate occasions that he was not under investigation for collusion. He didn’t; he confirmed it.

So what exactly has Trump lied about? Once again, Trump is more sinned against than sinning. The media always cast him as the bully, but when the dust clears, he more often than not emerges as the victim. (Read more.)

I do not expect you to print this but shame on you Elena Maria Vidal for printing such lies. Comey has principles that Trump has never known. I know people in New York that performed work for Trump and he stiffed them from payments. He is a liar , a misogynist and a narcissist and YOU like most papists support this man because he is "anti abortion." REALLY?? Your morality only runs for supporting the unborn. Shame on you for being the worst kind of hypocrite.

I printed this, Lara, because your comments are a perfect example of the hatred of the Left, of all Leftist lunatics from the French Revolutionaries to the Bolsheviks to the Maoists to the Pol Pot Regime. You remind me of the Jacobins and how they hated Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette. Hatred destroys reason; it is never a good thing. You are making a monster of Trump, a monster who does not exist except in your mind and in the minds of others who love abortion as your satanic sacrament. You are the hypocrite, and what you stand for is pure evil. Your further posts will be deleted without being read.
