  1. They are Leftists.  Leftists do not obey the rules unless it is convenient or advances their cause.

    The Russia Collusion Hoax is treasonous through and through.

  2. That email reminded me of a Few Good Men

    An order for the record.   Was it typical that the DOJ/FBI violate the law?  If they go by the book, why do you need to order them to go by the book?

    Which book? “Dreams of my Father”, “Higher Loyalty”, or “What happened”?

  4. It’s all a sham.  I don’t know why everyone on the Right is getting so exercised about this.  Honestly, now.    Show of hands.   Who actually thinks something, anything, is going to happen vis a vis Obamagate / Russia hoax?
    Nothing ever happens to the Dems.    It’s a rule.    Think back…the Obama IRS freely admitted that they targeted Obama political opponents in the Tea Party.    Admitted it.   What happened?  Nothing.   Nada.  Zip.
    This is all bread-and-circuses to keep the Repub  base enlivened until the election.   But nothing else concrete is going to come of this.

  5. This is the quintessential CYA memo. EdK has it right.

    And… the fact that nothing ever does happen to Dems, as he says, is leading them to push the envelope ever farther in their abuses. Lack of effective legal consequences for acts of this magnitude bodes ill for long term domestic tranquility. A system which allows such uncivil – treasonous, actually – acts by one side but not the other, eventually will devolve to desperation and violence. The equal application of the rule of law to both sides is an absolute necessity if the republic is to endure. I see little reason for optimism.

  6. Why is Quid pro Joe Biden innocent of graphic massively documented decades of frank public pedophilia?  Why is Hunter “The Nose” Biden innocent of $billion frauds in China and the Ukraine including overwhelming IRS fraud? Why is upChuck Schumer not indicted for making public constructive threats against two Supreme Court Justices?  Why are Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, Schumer not indicted for attempted overthrow of the duly elected President of the United States?

    Why?  Because they publicly, inarguably, factually DID IT.  Welcome to Amerizuela.  Arm yourselves.  This does not promise your survival.  This does sum to cumulative distaste on the other side’s storm troopers for proceeding.  What laws are Inner City enforced?  None.  giggle

  7. Me neither CW. It’ll come to violence soon. And the determinative factor will be whether the police and the military will turn their guns on the (very well-armed) populace.

    The powers that be cannot secure themselves. There is not enough force to contain the populations here. How do you go door to door disarming people, when your force is being shot in the back? How you use drones at kill people, when your family home is being attacked?

    The British thought they could march around with impunity, and unitl 1775, they were right. After Concord, they were stuck in Boston.

  9. Another good analysis from Margot Cleveland:

    Of course, it would be entirely normal and appropriate for Flynn to speak with the Russian ambassador as part of the Trump transition team, and there is no reason to believe Flynn would share classified information with Kislyak. In fact, we know from the FBI’s closing memorandum on Flynn that a thorough investigation had revealed no derogatory information. But Comey cautioned Obama otherwise. Why? And why did Rice belatedly document this conversation?

    Possibility one: Comey, and in turn Rice and Obama, truly believed Flynn was compromised and might hand classified information to the Russians. But if that was the case, it was inexcusable for Comey not to brief President-elect Trump on that fear. And it was inexcusable for then-President Obama not to direct Comey to provide that briefing.

    The second possibility is that no one suspected Flynn of being a Russian agent, but the FBI needed a pretext to continue to investigate Flynn so it could justify withholding details of the broader Crossfire Hurricane investigation from Flynn and thereby Trump. Either possibility is a huge political scandal that runs right through Comey to Obama.

    However, there is a second significance to the details released yesterday, namely the declassified paragraph, when read together with other recently released documents, confirms that when FBI Agents Peter Strzok and Joe Pientka questioned Flynn on January 24, 2017, the FBI had no valid investigative purpose.

  10. Eventually it will be illegal to register as a Republican unless you live in certain states where it won’t matter how you vote. If mail-in ballots and abolition of the electoral college come to fruition, your votes will never matter again. Then maybe you folks will be where I have been for a number of years now: secession.

    I cannot ‘like’ this.

    I hope and pray that you are wrong.

    But I agreed with older son that I need to buy more ammo.

    Bubba I don’t like this either. You think I want my 4 year old growing up in the midst of a civil war poised to be bloodier than the first? No this has been thrust upon us just as it was thrust upon our ancestors.

    In a number of years, you will still be yelling the end is nigh, and it will be same old, same old.

    Well we shall see. I hope you are correct, but given the current direction of things I don’t see how things remain the same. This only gets worse. Think of it this way, if what happened to Flynn is not punished, then you might as well quit voting because it will be shown for futile exercise that it is slowly becoming.

  15. Don’t give up.  Senator Grassley and Senator Johnson are working hard to provide an assist to Barr and Durham.

    “We write now both to reiterate our request for the declassification of additional information related to the unmasking of Americans around the time of the 2016 election, but also to expand the scope of our request to include information as early as January 2016,” Grassley and Johnson wrote. “Based on our investigation and recent press reports, we are increasingly concerned that the surveillance of U.S. persons affiliated with the Trump campaign began earlier than the opening of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation in late July 2016.”

    Sens. Grassley and Johnson say the administration’s deep-state surveillance operation on the Trump campaign involved unmasking even more U.S. citizens tied to the campaign that preceded the official launch of Crossfire Hurricane.

    Kudos for your optimism.   And it’d be sweet if something worked out.    But it won’t.   They are all just going through the motions.    Steel yourself for disappointment.

    That is hyperbole.
