The silence of the scams

What a difference a year makes. The press rolled out red carpet in June 2017 when Jimmy the Weasel testified before a Senate committee. His testimony was supposed to bring President Trump down.

CNN had a countdown clock to the hearing.



But after president tweeted that Comey better hope their was no tape of their conversations, Comey's testimony was muted.

This year, Comey is not saying a thing.

He wrote a book and gave interviews to peddle the book.

But suddenly, as investigators begin examining his role in interfering in the 2016 election, Comey is zipping his lips.

"Fired FBI Director James Comey refused to appear before Congress on Monday to talk about his handling of the Clinton email investigation, and his fired deputy, Andrew McCabe, asserted his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination, Sen. Charles E. Grassley said," the Washington Times reported.

"Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch also declined to show up for a major hearing where the Senate Judiciary Committee was looking into the inspector general’s report detailing major bungles in Mr. Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation.

"Mr. Comey’s lawyer said he was out of the country — though Mr. Grassley, committee chairman, said he saw Mr. Comey was in Iowa over the weekend, visiting a key state in presidential campaigning.

"'He has time for book tours and television interview, but apparently no time to assist this committee,' Mr. Grassley, an Iowa Republican, said.

"He said he had sought to compel the three to show up to testify, but Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, blocked him. Under committee rules, the ranking Democrat must agree with the chairman in order to issue a subpoena."

Hmm. This is getting interesting. And the rest of the press is ignoring it.

Maybe I should make a countdown to indictment clock.

  1. Ignoring bad stuff does not make it go away, Democrats.

  2. I’ve heard it said that it’s not the crime but the coverup. In this case it is both.

  3. "Maybe I should make a countdown to indictment clock."
    Set the alarm for the 30th of February. That's when justice will finally be served.

  4. Beware the Second Comey! He may be gone now but he will return to mete out... whatever.

    1. As a Californian who has loathed her for decades, I would leap for joy if Feinswein were to be indicted too.

      Like a poet may have put it:
      Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
      The slings and arrows of outrageous DiFi policies,
      Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles,
      And by opposing end them, and her gun control measures too!

      To sleep, perchance to dream, and sugar-plum fairies say 'tis a consummation devoutly to be wished! To go away, DiFi, to be no more!

      Then she should exit, pursued by a California bear!

      (Apologies to William whose verse I have mangled, but it was for a good cause.)

  6. If I was Trump I would announce a second special counsel to investigate the crimes of the FBI and the Democrats in Russiagate and follow this up by firing Meuller and naming him as a co-conspirator under investigation.

    He won't do this, of course. He'll wait for them to play out their hands even further before making any moves.

  7. The committee would have learned little from their appearance before the panel. Their failure to appear just shortens the time until they are indicted. Let's get on with it.

  8. To Comey, Iowa probably is a foreign country.

    Johnny scattered apple-seeds, with Jimmy it’s corn.

  9. Sometimes you can say more by being silent than speaking. None of those people want to be seen on camera, under oath, pleading the Fifth. - Elric

  10. If they did appear they might quote the smartest woman in the world: "I don't remember. At this point, what difference does it make?"
