The Chumph Fires Comey

Time for an Independent Prosecutor who doesn’t have to play footsie with Republicans.

In firing Comey, Trump is playing with fire

Historians may one day remember May 9, 2017 as a fateful day in American history. In firing FBI director James Comey, the 45th President of the United States may well have set in motion a series of events that could lead to more controversy and potentially even his impeachment less than a year after being sworn into office.

President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions set these events in motion by dispatching the highly respected former Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to craft a rationale to fire Comey.
In a three-page memorandum, the best Rosenstein could do was to invoke what is now ancient political history — Comey’s alleged violation of Department of Justice policies in the handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. The alleged transgressions related to this investigation occurred months before Trump’s Inauguration.
Of course, all of this was widely known and publicly discussed well before Trump made the decision to keep Comey in the position of FBI director.
The FBI director was obviously fired yesterday for something other than being too nice to Hillary Clinton by ignoring Department of Justice regulations.
Hints as to the real reason for the director’s shocking termination can be found in a series of answers Comey gave when Senator Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut, interrogated him during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on May 3.
SEN. RICHARD BLUMENTHAL: Thank you, Director Comey, for being here, and thank you to you and the men and women who work with you at the FBI for their extraordinary service to our country, much of it unappreciated as you’ve wrote so powerfully in your opening statement. You have confirmed, I believe, that the FBI is investigating potential ties between Trump associates and the Russian interference in the 2016 campaign, correct?
COMEY: Yes.
BLUMENTHAL: And you have not, to my knowledge, ruled out anyone in the Trump campaign as potentially a target of that criminal investigation, correct?
COMEY: Well, I haven’t said anything publicly about who we’ve opened investigations on, I briefed the chair and ranking on who those people are. And so I can’t — I can’t go beyond that in this setting.
BLUMENTHAL: Have you ruled out anyone in the campaign that you can disclose?
COMEY: I don’t feel comfortable answering that, Senator, because I think it puts me on a slope to talking about who we’re investigating.
BLUMENTHAL: Have you — have you ruled out the President of the United States?
COMEY: I don’t — I don’t want people to over-interpret this answer, I’m not going to comment on anyone in particular, because that puts me down a slope of — because if I say no to that then I have to answer succeeding questions. So what we’ve done is brief the chair and ranking on who the US persons are that we’ve opened investigations on. And that’s — that’s as far as we’re going to go, at this point.
BLUMENTHAL: But as a former prosecutor, you know that when there’s an investigation into several potentially culpable individuals, the evidence from those individuals and the investigation can lead to others, correct?
COMEY: Correct. We’re always open-minded about — and we follow the evidence wherever it takes us.
BLUMENTHAL: So potentially, the President of the United States could be a target of your ongoing investigation into the Trump campaign’s involvement with Russian interference in our election, correct?
COMEY: I just worry — I don’t want to answer that — that — that seems to be unfair speculation. We will follow the evidence, we’ll try and find as much as we can and we’ll follow the evidence wherever it leads.
This was obviously not the answer that the President expected to hear from his FBI director as he testified under oath before Congress and the American people. President Trump no doubt fully expected his director to say with utmost clarity and sincerity, “The President is not under investigation.”
These words Comey refused to speak — but it’s clear from the bizarre language of Trump’s letter terminating the director that the President wanted Comey to say them. “While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau.”
Why would the President insert this phrase? He did so because the real reason Comey was being fired was his egregious violation of the Trumpian principle of absolute and unquestioning loyalty to President Trump.
By refusing to unequivocally deny even the possibility that Trump was being investigated, Comey demonstrated that he could not be trusted in the troubled times ahead.
Trump could have removed Comey from office at the start of his Presidential term, but he made a calculated judgement that Comey would owe the President for the substantial favor of allowing the director to remain in office.
After all, the director’s public comments about the pending Hillary Clinton email investigation had clearly violated long-standing Department of Justice policy requiring no comment, particularly during election periods. They warranted Comey’s dismissal even before Trump was sworn in. Comey was also a bit of a loose cannon, but he was generally thought to be scrupulously honest.
By keeping Comey on when he took office, what better card could Trump hold than a favor owed by the director of the FBI as investigators zeroed in on the Russian hacking of the presidential election of 2016.
All of this puts Trump in the first mile of the Richard Nixon road to impeachment. It took Nixon, a skilled and experienced hand at manipulating the levers of power, almost two full terms in office before his abuse of power was detected and effectively prosecuted.

Teacher Drags Pre-Schooler Down Hall

A photo of a white teacher dragging a black pre-school child by his arm down the hallway has set of a 5 alarm fire in Cleveland. What we don’t now from the picture is if this was a momentary thing, where the kid fell down, or if she actually dragged him all the way to the principal’s office. In my youth, I was a volunteer helper for Head Start. When your parents are teachers, you are “encouraged” to go see what teaching is about, real time at some point growing up. Dealing with little folks was surely an experience as I had no younger siblings. They can be a bit feisty (and one heck of a lot of fun with their energy) – but I can’t think of any possible justifiable reason to physically drag a 3 year old kid down the hall. The teachers I observed in my volunteer days had other, non-violent, ways of controlling kids. None of them included violence in any form.

 

WTH… Preschool Teacher Fired After Being Caught Dragging Student

An Ohio preschool teacher is in hot water following the release of incriminating photos. According to Cleveland.com, the teacher – whose name has not been released – was employed by Alta Health Care, a non-profit company that services Alta Head Start, which is an early education program within the Wilson School of Youngstown, Ohio. The photo is so disturbing it has caught the attention of parents everywhere who are appalled and disturbed about the incident. Concerned Teacher Takes Action: It has been reported that another teacher witnessed the woman dragging the child down a hallway and snapped a quick photo of the disturbing incident. Youngstown City Schools spokeswoman Denise Dick released a statement explaining the teacher’s position in the school and how the photo was taken. All of the classrooms are structured with one Youngstown teacher and an educational aide. The school houses 845 students up to 5 years old. The boy in the photo was reportedly enrolled in the head start program. Alta Head Start, a government funded program, has children aged 3 to 5 enrolled. It has been reported that the photo, taken by a Youngstown City Schools teacher serving in administrative capacity, was turned over to Mahoning County Children’s Services.

The School Responds: In a statement released to the Youngstown Vindicator, Joseph Shorokey, CEO of Alta Behavioral Health CEO, addressed the incident while explaining the school’s stance. He revealed action was taken immediately after the photo surfaced and he made it clear such behavior is unacceptable. “We took this matter very seriously,” Shorokey said on Thursday, May 4. “We took action immediately. We apologized to the parents, as well as to the community.” He went on to further disassociate the school from the teacher’s actions. “I want to make sure it is clear that the individual who was terminated does not reflect the values of the dedicated and skilled professionals at Alta Head Start,” Shorokey said Wednesday in a statement. “Alta would and will never stand for anything other than the highest quality of excellence and anything short of that is beyond anything we find acceptable and would tolerate,” Shorokey said. the Vindicator. “These fine teachers and aides should not be unfairly portrayed as anything less because of the person who was terminated,” he said. It is unclear whether or not the teacher will face charges.

The Whites Only House Fires the Black Usher – Is the Chumph Purging Black Employees?

The House is “Whites Only” after all!

More than likely, the Chumph couldn’t tolerate the idea f a female, much less black manager.

Perhaps Sessions complained about seeing a black woman in a position of authority?

White House says ousted usher left on ‘very good terms’

The White House chief usher left the administration “on very good terms,” deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday.

The White House confirmed to The Washington Post earlier Friday that Angella Reid was fired. Reid was the first woman and second African-American to serve in that role.

“She is no longer employed here at the White House. But we left on very good terms and wish her the very best and certainly hope for great things for her in the future,” Huckabee Sanders told reporters Friday in her first on-camera briefing.

The Post noted that the White House usher oversees all activities in the residence, working as the dwelling’s general manager. Reid joined the White House in 2011 during former President Barack Obama’s administration, replacing Stephen Rochon, who was the White House’s first African-American usher.

“It’s not uncommon that you might have a transition of staff when a new administration comes in, and it’s simply nothing more than that,” Huckabee Sanders said, reiterating that “we certainly wish her again the very best.”

Huckabee Sanders said the deputy usher will replace Reid in an acting capacity “for right now.”

Tomi Lahren’s Microwave “Butt Pad”

Add to the growing list of white-wing talking heads getting shidtcanned.

Seems that Trevor Noah’s “girlfriend” suffers from a cold behind…

Strange.

It also seems to have gotten her…Unemployed.

Perhaps she should try longer skirts?

Tomi Lahren’s former colleagues at The Blaze turn on her: Glenn Beck fired her because she was difficult to work with

Lahren is reported to have enjoyed humiliating co-workers by chewing them out and making them warm her butt pad

Image result for tomi lahrenWhile the immediate cause of Tomi Lahren’s termination from The Blaze was apparently her decision to tell “The View” that she believes the government shouldn’t tell women what to do with their bodies, a new report suggests that there was actually deeper drama behind the scenes that explains Lahren’s departure — and a lot of it has to do with accusations about her personality.

During her stint at The Blaze, Lahren is accused of being confrontational toward her colleagues and demeaning toward her staffers, according to several sources with direct knowledge of the situation who spoke to the Daily Caller on condition of anonymity. This includes reports that Lahren became jealous of the attention received by BlazeTV host Dana Loesch and refused to enter the makeup room when Loesch was present. She is also reported to have gotten into a heated argument with an African-American host named Lawrence Jones after he confronted her about comparing Black Lives Matter to the KKK.

Perhaps most disturbing are the claims that Lahren was abusive to her staff. Sources say that she would frequently yell and curse at people less powerful than her, in particular singling out one of her two makeup artists for humiliation in front of her co-workers and guests. Among the “diva” behavior described by the sources who spoke to The Caller was insisting that staffers microwave her “butt warming pad” before every show, a demand that a source referred to as “dehumanizing.”

The countersuit filed by The Blaze against Lahren claims that her “treatment of the floor crew was inappropriate and unprofessional.” The suit claimed Lahren “constantly complain[ed] about everything including but not limited to lighting, room temperature, editing, shooting, directing, etc. Lahren was divisive and created conflicts with other media personalities at TheBlaze.”

It is worth noting that Amy Holmes, who used to work as a political commentator for The Blaze, took to Twitter earlier this month to contest the notion that Lahren’s firing had anything to do with her pro-choice views.

The Empty Suit at Justice Has No Lawyers!

I guess the graduating class at KKK University Law School isn’t quite ready yet. After firing his entire staff of Prosecutors…Sessions hasn’t found anyone so far who will stoop to work with him. Geez…There have to be a few white-wing lowlifes from Jerry Fallwell U!

Seems in his haste to eliminate anyone who would move forward the investigation into Putin’s Bitch’s treason…Sessions wound up with and empty house.

An empty house for an empty suit…How apropos.

A month after dismissing federal prosecutors, Justice Department does not have any U.S. attorneys in place

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is making aggressive law enforcement a top priority, directing his federal prosecutors across the country to crack down on illegal immigrants and “use every tool” they have to go after violent criminals and drug traffickers.

But the attorney general does not have a single U.S. attorney in place to lead his tough-on-crime efforts across the country. Last month, Sessions abruptly told the dozens of remaining Obama administration U.S. attorneys to submit their resignations immediately — and none of them, or the 47 who had already left, have been replaced.

“We really need to work hard at that,” Sessions said when asked Tuesday about the vacancies as he opened a meeting with federal law enforcement officials. The 93 unfilled U.S. attorney positions are among the hundreds of critical Trump administration jobs that remain open.

Sessions is also without the heads of his top units, including the civil rights, criminal and national security divisions, as he tries to reshape the Justice Department.

U.S. attorneys, who prosecute federal crimes from state offices around the nation, are critical to implementing an attorney general’s law enforcement agenda. Both the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations gradually eased out the previous administration’s U.S. attorneys while officials sought new ones.

Sessions said that until he has his replacements, career acting U.S. attorneys “respond pretty well to presidential leadership.”

But former Justice Department officials say that acting U.S. attorneys do not operate with the same authority when interacting with police chiefs and other law enforcement executives.

“It’s like trying to win a baseball game without your first-string players on the field,” said former assistant attorney general Ronald Weich, who ran the Justice Department’s legislative affairs division during Obama’s first term.

“There are human beings occupying each of those seats,” Weich, now dean of the University of Baltimore School of Law, said of the interim officials. “But that’s not the same as having appointed and confirmed officials who represent the priorities of the administration. And the administration is clearly way behind in achieving that goal.”

Filling the vacancies has also been complicated by Sessions not having his second-highest-ranking official in place. Rod J. Rosenstein, nominated for deputy attorney general — the person who runs the Justice Department day-to-day — is still not on board, although he is expected to be confirmed by the Senate this month. Traditionally, the deputy attorney general helps to select the U.S. attorneys.

Rosenstein, who served as U.S. attorney for Maryland, has also been designated, upon his confirmation, to take on the responsibility of overseeing the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and any links between Russian officials and Trump associates after Sessions was forced to recuse himself.

Bannon Gets Thumped! Kicked Off of National Security Council

Never really understood what, if any qualifications Steve Bannon had to be the National Security Adviser. Even in the Chumph administration where the qualifications bar is only slightly lower than its standards for truth telling.

Apparently, the folks who are qualified to do that job…Agree.

This is an as-of-yet uncorroborated report out of Bloomberg,

“Bannon Got Cannoned!”

Top Trump adviser Steve Bannon booted off the National Security Council: report

Steve Bannon, the controversial former head of Breitbart News who now serves as the chief political strategist for President Donald Trump, has been removed from his post on the National Security Council.

Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs reports that the NSC was reorganized on Tuesday to remove Bannon, while also “downgrading the role of his Homeland Security Adviser, Tom Bossert.”

The move also puts Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and Marine Corps General Joseph Dunford — the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff — back as “regular attendees” of the NSC’s principals committee.

The decision to reorganize the council was made by Trump’s new national security adviser, Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, according to the Wall Street Journal.

“Susan Rice operationalized the NSC during the last administration. I was put on to ensure that it was de-operationalized. General McMaster has returned the NSC to its proper function,” Bannon said in a statement.

Bannon has long been a controversial figure, as he is a self-described “Leninist” who has attacked not only Democrats, but also members of the Republican establishment.

Breitbart News, his old website, has continued attacking House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), and in particular has been aggressive in its criticism of the House Republicans’ proposed health care plan.
