I don’t know why I continue with this thread… guess I am just drawn to bright shiny bottle caps.
This is the kind of ‘news’ reporting that you tend to feed off of without questioning what is said.
On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” former CBS anchor Dan Rather commented on FBI Director James Comey’s firing by stating, “what’s going on here is an effort to cover up the facts.”
Rather said, “Well, first of all, there’s something very Nixonian about all of this, not the least of which being…that President Trump fired the acting Attorney General, Ms. Yates. Then he fired the federal attorney in New York, Mr. Bharara. Then he fires Comey. What they all have in common, they were all investigating Donald Trump. Look, it’s no secret about what’s going on here, as several people have already pointed out, what’s going on here is an effort to cover up the facts. Why they’re so desperate to cover up the facts, we do not know.”
Firstly, Rather speculates… that is all it can be is speculation because if their was proof, congress would have already started impeachment proceedings. So Rather starts out with speculation and turns it into a rather definitive statement. "“what’s going on here is an effort to cover up the facts.” Well Dan, if that is the case show the FACTS as a good journalist would do.
Then he talks about Three ‘firings’. The first Yates was in fact fired for cause… she would not do what she was told to do by her employer… simple. As far as Bharara goes, he was one of 40 plus attorneys told to hit the skids… an act that is not at all unusual for a new president. What was odd was the belligerence of Bharara when he refused to resign… so he made a spectacle our of what was otherwise routine, not Trump. And now we have Comey… no buddy liked him… except when they liked him which says a lot about his law enforcement ethics… Stupid Maxine Waters said that Hillary would have and should have fired him but not Trump… To me Trump should have fired him for not recommending charges months ago… Anyway, time will tell who actually had their fingers in the election fraud pot… If the truth be know… which I doubt with Ivanka at the helm will ever happen, more than a few Dem’s would fine themselves looking at the world through bars.
Make no mistake, I want to see Washington scum thrown out of Washington at a minimum and in jail preferable… and I really don’t care who is PROVEN to be scum. But I get very tired of the speculation and innuendo with absolutely no proof.
