Happy Father’s Day!

  • Newsflash: Tweet notwithstanding, President Trump is NOT under investigation
  • Why would Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein appoint a Special Counsel when the application regulation does not allow it under the circumstances?
  • Why would Special Counsel Robert Mueller, allegedly a man with unquestioned integrity, hire an attorney whose deliberate unethical conduct as prosecutor led to several innocent people spending a year in jail?
  • Why won’t the Left own the consequences of their unrelenting hatred and poisonous rhetoric?

Opening Audio-Speaker Paul Ryan says let Special Counsel Bob Mueller do “his work.” Really? Even if his appointment is unconstitutional and in violation of the applicable regulation? Even if his charge is COMPLETELY unlimited because of an interesting fact EVERYONE is ignoring? Is Speaker Ryan just waiting for the minute when enough of the president’s supporters desert him that Ryan believes its politically expedient to lead the impeachment charge?

SEGMENT 1-(4:00-4:30)-You cannot make this stuff up-Mueller Probe of POTUS
Opening Monologue-10 Things to Know About President Trump and Russia “Scandal”

1. The President is NOT under investigation.
2. Clear, black letter law that Pres has authority to fire anyone in the exec branch. Comey himself said so in his exit letter to staff and in his testimony to Congress. He also would have had absolute right to pardon anyone including Michael Flynn.
3. There was nothing inappropriate about Flynn talking to the Russian ambassador. Obama regime out to get him because, remember, they had fired him and he was a harsh critic. There was no reason to investigate him, so obviously the Obama Regime was hoping to do a Scooter Libby on him.
4. Trump campaign collusion with Russia is not a crime, but of course after over 9 months of investigation, there has been no evidence of any collusion, which is why those conducting this de facto coup. It is an attack on the President, but more important. it is an attack on US, on the
5. Much has been made of Mueller’s conflict of interest and people he has appointed. Why would Rosenstein appoint someone with such a clear conflict of interest? Look at his confirmation vote. He’s a member of the clique. Rosenstein violated regulation in appointing Special Counsel, which is supposed to apply to CRIMINAL investigation, NOT counter intelligence investigation. The reg is 28 CFR Sec. 600.1.
6. Rosenstein’s sloppy reading of this reg turns the whole thing into an endless fishing expedition.
7. Obama holdover made decision to allow Comey to create impression that Trump was under investigation, which goes back to what a huge mistake it was for Sessions to recuse himself.
8. Huge mistake not firing Comey on Day 1
9. What really needs to be investigated is Comey’s behavior. James Comey is a deceitful, inside the Beltway politician and opportunist, who in his March 20, 2017 testimony, deliberately created the impression that the president was being investigated for criminal behavior, even though he had told both the president and members of Congress that the president was not being investigated. Job justification. That weasel behavior understandably angered the president. His second mistake was not ordering Comey to correct the record. The first one, repeating, was not firing him on Day 1.
10. Left currently obsessed with supposedly “shocking” fact that Sessions hasn’t been briefed on Russian interference, and that the president doesn’t care. NYT editorial–Maher audio. Wasn’t it just 5 minutes ago that they were screaming that he needed to recuse himself from all things Russian? I don’t think he’s allowed to have Russian salad dressing or watch “Dr. Zhivago,” according to the democrats. Weren’t they complaining about his involvement in the firing of the FBI Director? Yes, they were, even though even if Sessions had recused himself in the Russia collusion investigation that would have ZERO to do with the decision to fire the FBI Director. Of course, there was no reason for Sessions to recuse himself. The reg he cited applies to criminal investigations, NOT counterintelligence investigations.
