Draining the Swamp

Trump’s draining the swamp by cutting  taxes and regulations. And now the economy is booming.

But he’s slapping tariffs on friends and foes alike. Friends can get exemptions. But to do that they have to hire lobbyists to work the bureaucratic maze.

No FBI Bias Here

Inspector General Michael Horowitz looked into the FBI investigation of Hilary Clinton’s email server. He released his report on Friday and testified before the House Judiciary Committee yesterday.

Some of his more interesting findings included text messages from lead FBI agent Peter Strzok. He referred to Hillary as the “future prez.” Strzok also said he would “stop Trump.”  Still, the IG found no FBI bias in the investigation results.

Here’s Trey Gowdy asking how Jim Comey could draft an exonerating press release six weeks before the FBI’s interview with Hillary took place.

If you’ve got some time on your hands watch the entire I.G. hearing here on C Span:

What Rocket Man Told Trump

Nobody but the translator really knows what Rocket Man told Trump at their summit in Singapore. But we do know Kim wouldn’t be there if not for his nuclear weapons. His nukes are how he communicates his fearsome awesomeness to the world.

Communicators

Speaking of communicating his fearsome awesomeness – where would President Trump be without his Twitter account?

Could be a long negotiation.

G7 American Allies Battle

There was discord during the buildup to the G7 meetings of rich nations in Quebec. Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau was insulted because he thinks Trump considers Canada to be a security threat.

But President Trump did say he had to hit American allies with high tariffs for national security reasons.

Then on Thursday, which happened to be the D-Day anniversary, French President Macron took a shot at Trump saying, “No leader is forever.” He also said, “the six G7 countries without the U.S. are bigger than the American market.”

The next day Trump waded into the meetings insisting that Russia be included.

 

 

Thank You For Spying

Eric Holder’s Justice Department threatened Fox News Reporter James Rosen as a co-conspirator under the espionage act. Except Holder never really intended to charge Rosen. It was all a pretext to spy on his phone calls and emails to find out who in the government was leaking information to him.

The Obama administration also spied on the phone records of Associated Press journalists.

More Spying

And of course they lied about spying on us too.

This week Joy Behar, of all people, outed James Clapper for spying on the Trump campaign. Clapper claimed Trump should be happy about this because his agent was really spying on Russians.

The Washington Post and New York Times find this explanation perfectly reasonable.
