        True. Now watch all of the republicans come out in support of this because they think that the investigations will be over. I know that there is dirt on them as well that they now feel will not come to light, but trust and believe just the opposite will happen. We know that they all hate Clinton and to think that anyone would believe that this firing is because of her is ludicrous. Furthermore, having Sessios involved in this is a crime. It is more than time for law enforcement properties to step in now.

    I have repeatedly reminded people here that if Comey is fired or resigns, then with these thugs in WH & gop, there is probably going to be NO Russia scandal investigation;

    keep your Eyes on the Prize: consider the fact that the people who recommended the firing of comey are both newly appointed – and this includes the unrepentant racist who committed perjury, session;

    People, please be clear-eyed, citing HRC is just rouse to get dems to side with the homegrown demagogue’s actions;

    this firing is ALL about Russia, everything else is just background noise being pushed by thugs who are used to getting away with everything

      And I. And no doubt Director Comey would have considered this possibility all along. Perhaps this is the card they have been waiting for to break it wide open? Action/behavior of such extreme and unprecedented character surely underwrites proof of guilt and collusion. Why else would the administration go there? Fingers crossed the very powerful full Moon tomorrow will bring it all into the Light.

    All those that say that firing Comey will not compromise the Russian probe at the FBI, what will make you admit that it does? When the investigation is closed? When documents are destroyed? Oh, right. GOP is already obstructing the investigation so they won’t care.

  28. May 9, 2017 at 7:25 pm

    I’m completely stunned, but deep siren not shocked. A Watergate moment indeed. But back then I don’t think I was actually worried for or Democracy, because not every single GOP was on board with Nixon. Who is there to stand up to this?

    • May 9, 2017 at 7:46 pm

      I don’t know that every single GOP is on board with 45, but for some reason they don’t have the backbone to act independently and go against the party/45. We’ll hear words of being troubled; maybe even outraged. But that will be as far as it will go.

      …so I guess that in essence makes them on board, huh.

          Their silence along with their *insincere* expressions of concern, disturbance, and disappointment. “Actions speak louder” definitely applies here.

    Do not for a moment think they will not go after Clinton again. There’s a woman who will spend a year in prison for laughing at Sessions… It would not surprise me if she isn’t arrested for “reasons.”

    Yes, it’s a blatant distraction from Russia – but it’s also because they don’t want to be wrong (even though they are….) about Clinton’s email (which is why they brought it up yesterday.)

    This has all been planned – and why they asked what they ALL (including Miss Lindsey) systematically asked during the Yates/Clapper hearing.

    That second paragraph is akin to 45’s statements that his inauguration crowd was bigger than PBO’s and to his habit of passing out colored electoral maps of the 2016 election to anyone who shows up in the oval. He is guilty as all hell and trying to force his addled perception of reality onto the entire country. The republicans have given the country away to the most foul person and his and of deplorables.

    Just saw on the msn newsfeed that 45 will be releasing video/audio of Hillary’s concession call. Has anyone else seen this from another source? Someone who truly believes that he has a won fair and square and that he has a mandate (not!) would not need to keep mentioning that he has done so. He is a rat in a trap and he is running around frantically trying to get out of it. I guess the next move will be a rally and another attempt at having some day to commemorate his doubtful win.
    Putin has succeeded beyond his wildest dreams; all of our democratic systems are under fire and strain and all it took was using the internet and a greedy businessman. This country was ripe for this coup because we have millions who are fat, lazy, satisfied and willfully blind and others still fighting the Civil War. We have not dealt with our own shit and as a whole we lack the type of sophistication needed to build and to sustain a nation that has so many misused resources, the major one of which is our own citizens.
    As an A-A woman of a certain age who has lived her entire life in the South, I am not shocked or even dismayed at how far white men will go to get and to hold power for the betterment of their small family/tribe; anyone and any nation that has built itself on the foundations of genocide and slavery is capable of anything. Who we are as a nation has always been clear, but so many refused to see it. Anyone with even only a general knowledge of the 500 years of history of European contact and colonization of this continent should not be surprised that we are where we are today.

    I blame Comey equally for HRC’s lost. I blamed Berniebros, Nina Turner and Susan Surandon too. I blame the russian agents that were in the Trump campaign and now occupy the WH. That being said, Comey is not fired for the Clinton scandal and mishandling; he is fired for investigating Orange Agent.

    Federal prosecutors have issued grand jury subpoenas to associates of former national security adviser Michael Flynn seeking business records, as part of the ongoing probe of Russian meddling in last year’s election, according to sources familiar with the matter.

    CNN learned of the subpoenas hours before President Donald Trump fired FBI director James Comey.

    The subpoenas represent the first sign of a significant escalation of activity in the FBI’s broader investigation begun last July into possible ties between Trump campaign associates and Russia.

    My friend, whom I find brilliant in so many ways and who dabbles in all things interesting, sent me this message:


    Inclusion [by Trump] of the sentence about “thank you for telling me three times I’m not being investigated,” pretty much by itself, convinces me there’s some level of panic afoot. (Interestingly, but not necessarily relevant, “three times” is a line that recurs in many fairy/folk tales – possibly the extent of Trump’s reading history.)
