My Take On Comey

By Steven Lupo.

My Take On Comey: Republicans went ballistic, and rightfully so, when former President Clinton got on a plane and met with Attorney General Lynch, as there was an active criminal investigation into his wife’s emails. What would Republicans have done, if Obama had fired Comey; while Comey was conducting an active criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails?

Now the shoe is on the other foot.  Donald Trump’s campaign was under an active criminal investigation by Director Comey. Unlike the Obama administration, Trump fires the man investigating him and his team. Even a partisan must admit how terrible this looks, no? It appears to be a cover-up, right?

Trump admits to asking Comey, three times, if he was personally under investigation. The answer is irrelevant. A sitting president was clearly attempting to influence an active criminal investigation, into *his* campaign’s activity. How would Republicans have reacted if Bill Clinton and AG Lynch stated that they spoke of the investigation into Hillary’s emails? The Republicans would have, rightfully, gone apocalyptic.

I try to ignore all the lies from Trump and his surrogates about *why* Trump did what he did. In stead, let’s focus on *what* Trump actually did.

    Great common sense, as usual, from David Posnett – let us hope that the GOP members of Congress understand how serious this is.
