Substantially all the news feeds are hot on Trump & “Obstruction of Justice” ( RT was talking about the Chinese “Belt & Road” initiative and geopolitical implications instead ).
Reputedly, Trump was coercing Comey to let Flynn off the hook and end his investigation pronto. He did this by saying “Flynn is a good guy” and “I hope you can let this go” (As per several outlets including the NYT in a ‘memo’ where Comey wrote his notes about the meeting).
So let me get this straight: Someone who may not like you so much can make a “memo” (supposedly to himself and the files) claiming you were a character witness for a subject of an investigation and had hopes that it didn’t lead to the “good guy” getting whacked; and THAT’S “obstruction of justice”? Really? And here I thought that was what every defense lawyer did at trial.
Now here I thought obstruction required something like burning records, destruction of evidence, meeting for 1/2 hour on an airplane with the A.G. when you wife is under investigation and then the AG the drops it…
If that really is the state of our Legal System, then The Swamp is in much more serious need of draining that I’d thought (and I thought it was “big league” in need of draining before.)
Even McCain is out there pumping for this. Guess his fragile little ego couldn’t take an insult or two during the campaign. The Three (used to be “the big three”) Alphabet Networks (ABC NBC CBS) are 4-walling this as the end of civilization and grounds for an immediate do-over of the election… well, maybe only impeachment and running out of town on a rail…
So “hound from office” is the plan, then. Set a pack of wolves onto anything and everything. Create fantasy Russian Threats and then attack anyone who says “show me evidence” or ever drank Vodka. Attack the children. Attack the friends. Attack being a character witness and expressing hope.
If we can not express hope, then the result will be despair. The result of Deplorables In Despair can be seen in Venezuela today. I “hope” the RNC and Republicans can see that supporting the President Of The United States is better than that outcome. If they think The Deplorables in the USA are going to accept legal-based political assassination of their Last Best Hope, they better be ready for never having another vote from them again.
All I can really speak for is myself. For me: ANYONE who participates in this POTUS Take Down, or even just stares into their coffee cup doing nothing while it happens, will NEVER EVER get a vote from me. I’ll vote for Bernie first and just try to ride out the Socialist Collapse to the recovery side before I’ll support a traitor.
If the RNC is worried about the result in the election based on Democrats nattering in their ear about how “bad this looks”, they better realize there is a very large and very quiet group watching. The same folks who didn’t answer polls about the election, and then elected Trump. Silent does not mean irrelevant. Silent does not mean agreement. Silence is what a big cat does just before it pounces on a fearful rodent.
