While Pres. Donald Trump’s Tuesday firing of FBI Director James Comey (read Trump’s letter) was hailed by conservatives, the reliably liberal editors at AOL took a distinctly different approach, exhibited by the headline:
“Why did Trump fire FBI Director James Comey? Cover-up of Russia investigation suspected.”
Of course, the usual Never-Trumpers, still reeling in the wake of scandal plagued Hillary Clinton’s defeat, were ready to pile on, concocting their own conspiracy theories, all revolving around Trump’s “collusion with Russia” resulting in his 2016 presidential election victory.
Using the well-known magician’s maneuver of misdirection, U.S. Senators Chuck Schumer (D-NY); Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass); Hillary’s running-mate Tim Kaine, (D-VA); and John McCain (RINO-AZ) were more than ready to heave their partisan spew to the media.
Schumer promptly called for an independent investigator to take over the “Russia probe.” Warren echoed Schumer’s calls for a special prosecutor. Kaine, peering out from under the rock where Hillary found him, used a series of tweets, declaring Comey’s termination proved “how frightened the Admin is over Russia investigation,” claiming it was “part of a growing pattern by White House to cover-up the truth.”
Republicrat McCain, the still smarting failed presidential candidate who previously called Hillary “a rock star” he could support, has done all he can to undermine Donald Trump since Trump won the GOP nomination. McCain and his family made it clear they were not voting for Trump, who won despite their embarrassing and rancorous display.
McCain, sounding no different than the Democrats he aligns with, said, “I have long called for a special congressional committee to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. The president’s decision to remove the FBI director only confirms the need and the urgency for such a committee.”
But wait! Chuck Schumer, Comey’s steadfast supporter today, on Nov. 2, 2016 — opinion swinging like a chimp in the rain forest — gave Comey a vote of no-confidence in response to his revelation that the FBI reopened its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state. “I do not have confidence in him any longer,” Schumer gravely stated. Liberal hypocrites switch their opinions so quickly, they must have chronic whiplash.
