WHITE HOUSE MEMO EXPLAINS
In order to restore the public confidence in the FBI, President Donald J. Trump accepted the recommendation of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and removed FBI Director James Comey from his position yesterday. It was a necessary move to reinstitute faith in America’s crown jewel of law enforcement after a series of high profile and political missteps. The search for new leadership that restores public trust and confidence in the FBI’s vital law enforcement mission will begin immediately.
DEMOCRAT SENATOR SNEERS
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) appeared on CNN’s New Day to bemoan Trump’s firing of the incompetent FBI Director James Comey. “What we have now is really a looming constitutional crisis that is deadly serious because there is an investigation ongoing,” said Blumenthal.
“Ultimately, there may be subpoenas to the President of the United States, just as occurred in 1973 precipitating United States versus Nixon and a similar firing of a special prosecutor,” Blumenthal said.
“So what’s needed now is in fact an independent counsel and special prosecutor.”
TRUMP RESPONDS IN THREE TWEETS
“Watching Senator Richard Blumenthal speak of Comey is a joke. ‘Richie’ devised one of the greatest military frauds in U.S. history. For years, as a pol in Connecticut, Blumenthal would talk of his great bravery and conquests in Vietnam – except he was never there. When caught, he cried like a baby and begged for forgiveness and now he is judge & jury. He should be the one who is investigated for his acts.”
THE REST OF THE STORY
On several occasions, Blumenthal claimed he served in Vietnam; dozens of articles about him listed him as a Vietnam War vet.
While he was in the United States Marine Corps Reserve from 1970 to 1976, he only served in cushy gigs in Washington, D.C., and Connecticut. He saw no action and was never deployed overseas.
Since he got caught lying to promote his political career, he has referred to his efforts to steal honor as being nothing more than “a few misplaced words.”
