Robert De Niro is a wit sandwich.
But on the Radio City Music Hall stage for the Tony Awards, De Niro offered a simpler call to political action. F__k Trump.
And he got a standing ovation.
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.
No FBI Bias Here
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:
In a PBS interview Bill Clinton pined for the old days. He griped that norms have changed. And you can’t have your way with people against their will anymore.
Maybe President Trump will un-cancel his meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles, like he did his meeting with the Pyongyang Tyrant.
It all had something to do with taking a knee during the National Anthem. Even though no Eagles took a knee.
Eagles Rodman Rocket Man
Anyway, it turns out Kim’s best buddy, Denis Rodman, likes Trump. So The Worm gave Rocket Man a copy of “The Art of The Deal”.
Can it get any weirder.? Um, yes it can. Rodman will be in Singapore during the summit.
So far the NBA finals have been all about the refs. In game one they overturned a charging call against Kevin Durant and changed it to a blocking foul against LeBron James. Durant went on to sink both free throws and tie the game.
But charging calls are only reviewable if the chargee – LeBron in this case – is thought to have been in the restricted zone. He wasn’t, but once the investigation was open they went after him for a different violation. His feet weren’t sufficiently planted when he took the collision.
NBA Finals All About the Refs
The NBA issues a Two Minute report on the officials after it’s all over and not reviewable. They say the prosecutors..er..refs got the charging call right. But Draymond Green should have been called for a foul against LeBron with 12 seconds remaining. Not only that, Green committed a lane violation on George Hill’s missed free throw with 4 seconds left.
That’s an opportunity cost of three more free throws for the frustrated Cavs.
