GOP Tramples Over US Laws With Gay Abandon

Hmmmm….

Comey’s Testimony on Huma Abedin Forwarding Emails Was Inaccurate – ProPublica

The problem: Much of what Comey said about this was inaccurate. Now the FBI is trying to figure out what to do about it.

FBI officials have privately acknowledged that Comey misstated what Abedin did and what the FBI investigators found. On Monday, the FBI was said to be preparing to correct the record by sending a letter to Congress later this week. But that plan now appears on hold, with the bureau undecided about what to do.

ProPublica is reporting a story on the FBI’s handling of the Clinton emails and raised questions with government officials last week about possible inaccuracies in Comey’s statements about Abedin.

It could not be learned how the mistake occurred. The FBI and Abedin declined ProPublica’s requests for comment on the director’s misstatements.

So Comey lied!! Quelle surprise. On what planet do these people live? Why on earth would Huma be sending emails to Weiner to print out? She would have to  go home and carry printed material with her. Everyone has a printer. This excuse just didn’t pass the smell test.

And the Trump is committing felony after felony. Who is going to stop him?

On Monday, in the hours before former acting Attorney General Sally Yates’ testimony to the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, the president engaged in a predictable tweet-storm, complete with an attack on the “fake news.” It’s entirely possible that one of those Monday morning tweets constituted felonious witness tampering. Here’s the tweet in question:

Ask Sally Yates, under oath, if she knows how classified information got into the newspapers soon after she explained it to W.H. Counsel.

Translation: That’s some really nice testimony ya got there, Yates — shame if something were to happen to it. And by “it,” I mean “you.”

 I am beyond disgusted with the US right now. Where are the checks and balances?

    During the Nixon era, I remember discussing the issue of checks and balances. To my mind, people put too much faith in them, as though they had some independently magic power. My argument was that all would be for naught if the POTUS and those around him went “bad” and the people did not rise up and hold them accountable.

    At that time I was a new immigrant. My opinion annoyed a whole lot of people. 😉 Fortunately, in the case of Nixon, there were people, Alexander Haig for one, who stopped him declaring Marshall Law.
