Former FBI Director Comey said it made him mildly nauseous to think he might have influenced the 2016 election by publicly opining on the Hillary investigation.
Not only that, he felt queasy about following his boss Loretta Lynch’s order to refer to the investigation as a “matter”.
Which I found mildly amusing.
Comey went public with Hillary’s email server crimes.
And Republicans loved it.
But he said she lacked intent and couldn’t be prosecuted.
And Democrats loved it.
But then he said someone sent classified documents to pervert Carlos Danger’s laptop.
And Republicans loved it.
But then he said, “Never mind.”
And Hillary blamed him for losing the election.
And Comey became mildly nauseous.
Then Trump fired him.
That somehow outraged Democrats. They called it the Tuesday Night Massacre. Like the Saturday Night Massacre of Watergate lore.
And then Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and ambassador Sergey Kislyak showed up at the White House.
And then Henry Kissinger showed up at the White House…
Clinton campaign officials gave the authors inside access in exchange for agreeing not to publish until after the election. Which the officials expected to win. It turns out the campaign officials were frustrated with the candidate. She couldn’t decide why she wanted to be president.
I looked up a list of 84 campaign slogans she tried on for size. I picked the ones I could fit on hats.
In 2012 President Obama told Russian President Medvedev he would be much more flexible after the election. Obama thought his remarks were private but he was speaking into an open mic in front of tv cameras.
Lucky for him, there was no Republican narrative of Russian election hacking in 2012. It might have seemed plausible, considering the fact that Obama repeatedly mocked Romney for insisting that Russia was our number one enemy. Also, in 2009, Obama halted a missile defense system in Poland and The Czech Republic. Romney described that act as “a gift to Russia.”
If the Russians had any incentive to hack a U.S. election, 2012 would seem to be the ticket. After that election they felt comfortable enough to invade Crimea without fear of U.S. sanctions. Obama only got tough with Russia on his way out the door in December 2016. He imposed sanctions after Hillary lost and the Russians were accused of hacking John Podesta’s emails. Which, btw, is the only reason we know Donna Brazile fed debate questions to Hillary.
Those sanctions are the ones Michael Flynn is accused of discussing in December with the Russian ambassador. We know about that, not through an open mic, but from leaked classified U.S. intelligence.
