SO WHERE ARE THE FBI INVESTIGATIONS INTO TRUMP? IF, OF COURSE, THERE ARE ANY.

DOUBLE STANDARD?  AH, NO.  THIS IS WAY BEYOND A "DOUBLE STANDARD!"

So now that FBI Director James Comey has alerted the world to the FBI’s investigation into former Congressman Anthony Weiner sexting adventures, how come we aren’t privy to the FBI’s current investigations into Donald Trump, if, of course there are any?  And “alerted the world” sounds too strident for you?  Umm, no, it’s not.  Sending a letter to any Republican Congressperson is tantamount to announcing it to the world.  Don’t forget Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) is the fucking retard who couldn’t even read a chart he presented as evidence at the “Get To The Bottom Of Planned Parenthood Selling Baby Parts For Profit As Proven By Doctored Videos By Calling A Single Witness” hearing, genius that he is, when the chart was as bogus as those Center for Medical Progress tapes, made no sense, and  he claimed were from documents submitted to the committee from Planned Parenthood when in fact (yes, IN FACT) it was clearly labe…

WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK OF WASHINGTON, D.C., THE CITY WE LOVE

People think Washingtonians are ‘corrupt’ and ‘arrogant.’ Well, people are ‘dumb.’

BY John Kelly October 30, 2016 The Washington Post
NOTE: We Washingtonians, (you, know, the 658,000 Americans who do not have representatives in Congress even though we have more people than Wyoming and Vermont) love our city.Sure, we see, read and hear all the crap that’s thrown at us in the press, but we just go on living our lives in one of America’s truly great cities.And, we tend to ignore all the stupid shit that happens on Capitol Hill, because Capitol Hill and Congress aren’t filled with real died-in-the-wool Washingtonians who have struggled or decades to finally make our city the wonderful place that it is today.We know very well that all the invective, the snide comments, the tirades against Washington are pretty much directed at those temporary residents, Senators and Congressmen, who temporarily occupy our city while they are in office but don’t really live here.So we just ignore them.John …

THE COMEY LETTER

SO WHAT EXACTLY DOES FBI DIRECTOR COMEY'S LETTER SAY?  HERE IT IS! 

In reality, it doesn't say much.  Just says that there is an un-named, unrelated, ongoing investigation where e-mails were discovered that might be pertinent to the Clinton Server case.  (Presumably, since it's unclear.) Mr. Comey tells the House Committee members that he cannot yet assess whether or not the e-mails (presumably) are "significant" nor how long it will take to determine whether or not this new material is either pertinent or significant.

It has come to light since Friday, that the investigation involves former N.Y. Congressman Anthony Weiner's alleged sexting to an underaged female, that the device is a laptop that both Weiner's (wife and Hillary aide Huma Abedin) shared, that the FBI hasn't actually seen any of the e-mails (they do not yet have warrants), and that the Department of Justice warned Comey about his letter since it violates DOJ policy about releasing anyth…

NEW NON-HILLARY E-MAIL SCANDAL FROM FBI DIRECTOR, JAMES COMEY

Image
WE DON’T KNOW MUCH BUT APPARENTLY THE SCANDAL DOESN’T INVOLE HILLARY

So, one might logically ask, why the announcement?   
James Comey, FBI Director, has lost all credibility.The “reason” (excuse) about why Comey decided to release whatever it is that they’ve found allegedly in an investigation of Anthony Weiner unrelated to Hillary Clinton and which e-mails might not even be relevant 11 days before the election is total bullshit.You know what I think?Bunch of FBI folks weren’t pleased with the last outcome of the Clinton e-mail investigation and pressured Comey to do this.Plus, of course, all the Republican wazoos on Capitol Hill who’ve been clambering for the FBI and the Justice Department to indict Clinton for years.  Apparently, Coomey has collapsed.
This strikes me as the very worst of political partisanship on the part of the FBI and Director Comey.It’s all smells like a bunch of political bullshit.This could not have waited 11 days?Okay – 12 days.No, of course, not.Because if Co…

THE KILLARY KLINTON E-MAIL SCANDAL

MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE STATE DEPARTMENT’S “COMPUTER SYSTEMS”

Okay.I don’t want this piece to be a defense of Hillary Clinton’s “handling” of State Department e-mails on her Chappaqua, NY, basement server that has caused so much kerfuffle among the press literati across the “biased for Clinton liberal news media,” No. This is not my intent.But as an opening gambit, let me say right off that I fully understand both her and Colin Powell’s decision to keep non-classified e-mail communications away from the State Department’s classified computer system.I can tell you from my personal experience that pretty much everyone I’ve ever dealt with at the State Department used the secure, official system only when absolutely, totally and fully necessary.
But first: Full Disclosure!I’ve met both Colin Powell and Hillary Clinton.Powell, once at a State Department reception (he was personable, charming and funny!).Clinton: a couple of times standing on the edge of Sidwell Friends School grassy field …
