The more time I spend away from the toxic waste dump the more difficult it is to wade back into it.

My trip with RJ last Friday went really well. We caught a variety of fish, including largemouth and smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and he caught is first walleye. He wanted to keep it, but it was about 3″ too short to be legal.

On Saturday, I watched RJs baseball game and yesterday was Big Sis’ first game of her summer volleyball league.

MISS OLIVIA IS PLAYING BASEBALL THIS YEAR. TRIED TO CATCH IT WITH HER HEAD.

I enjoy my beautiful grandchildren so much, it’s difficult to consider the violence, the anger, the lies and the blatant hypocrisy that is American politics today.

The one takeaway from the Comey hearings last week was that he was perfectly willing to lie for Loretta Lynch and Hillary Clinton, but NOT tell the truth for Donald Trump. There were a lot of people, including yours truly, that felt Trump should have canned him, along with every other influential member of Obama’s regime.

The president got some bad advice from Priebus, among others, and he has suffered for it as the leaks and the sabotage of his agenda has gone on from day one. The latest is that he is considering firing special counsel Robert Mueller. He never should have given in to the Democrats and appointed anybody. Mueller is a close friend of Comey and his investigative team is stacked with former Obama operatives.

Comey and Mueller have a history as a Deep State tag team

According to Michael Isikoff, writing in 2006, the FBI (then headed by Mueller) and an unnamed “senior Department of Justice official” were advised in October 2003 that Armitage was the man who leaked Plame’s identity – and yet two months later, upon his appointment to be deputy attorney general, James Comey appointed his friend Patrick Fitzgerald to investigate the leak. It’s hard to believe he didn’t at the time know full well who the leaker was.

Professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection indicates that Comey’s testimony suggests that Mueller is already going beyond the narrow mandate of Acting Attorney General Rosenstein and considering whether the president’s discussion with him about General Flynn constitutes “obstruction.”

Trump at risk from Comey/Mueller: If “they don’t get you on the crime, they get you on the process”

Robert Mueller, if he is going to consider the alleged obstruction of justice asserted by James Comey,  should not be the prosecutor or investigator in this because he is friendly with a key witness, James Comey.  So that’s what I meant when I said ‘friends should not be investigating friends.’  And Robert Mueller, if he is considering Trump’s asserted obstruction of justice, cannot and should not be the investigator on this case.”

Members of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Legal Team Donated To Democrats -FEC

One of the lawyers, James Quarles donated to Barack Obama and to Hillary Clinton.
Once again, nothing to see here….

Three of the five lawyers have donations in FEC records. They gave overwhelmingly to Democrats, totaling more than $53,000 since 1988.

James Quarles, whom Mueller brought over from his old firm, WilmerHale, has given nearly $33,000 to political campaigns over the years. He gave money to Democratic presidential candidates Michael Dukakis, Al Gore, John Kerry, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Comey’s SECOND Meeting With Loretta Lynch Reveals He Confronted Her About Political Interference

AS FBI DIRESTOR IT WAS HIS DUTY TO REPORT HER TO CONGRESS….HE NEVER DID
Ex-FBI Director James Comey has privately told members of Congress that he had a frosty exchange with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch last year when he confronted her about possible political interference in the Hillary Clinton email investigation after showing Lynch a sensitive document she was unaware the FBI possessed, according to sources who were directly briefed on the matter.

In multiple private sessions over the last few months, Comey has told lawmakers about a second, later confrontation with Lynch shortly before the email probe was shut down.

Trump Considering Firing Special Counsel Mueller …Update: Not Likely

The whole purpose of the special counsel is to have a prosecutor from outside the government and outside of the normal chain of command because inherent conflicts render the Justice Department incapable of handling it. So, now the special counsel is a close friend (mentor/mentee relationship) with the star witness, who by his own admission leaked the memos at least in part to engineer the appointment of a special counsel. Only in Washington. You can’t make this stuff up.”

THE DEMOCRATS ARE ALREADY IN A FRENZY TO BRING DOWN TRUMP ANY WAY POSSIBLE. WERE HE TO FIRE MUELLER, A MUSHROOM CLOUD WOULD FORM OVER THE CAPITOL.

Obama DOJ Tried to Influence Presidential Election

Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch told Obama’s FBI Director James Comey to publicly misrepresent and downplay the FBI’s investigation into Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information.

Against Security Advice

“The big anti-corruption news isn’t Comey’s testimony. It’s this new email Judicial Watch uncovered from #HillaryClinton confirming that, as she says, ‘Against the advice from security hawks, I still carry my Blackberry.’

Remember, #JamesComey said that Mrs. Clinton shouldn’t be prosecuted because she didn’t have the intent. This email blows that out of the water and shows why Mrs. Clinton should be held accountable to the full extent of the law.”

Good point in the comments: “There is nothing in any laws that allows intent as a defense. Besides this would be an issue for the judge and jury not the investigative police.”

The Day After Comey’s Testimony

My email is chock full of summaries and commentaries. I’ll try to condense it down to the best few bits.

2017_06 08 Comey testimony by Branco

THE BIG PICTURE: Trump’s distrust of Comey was vindicated by what we now know about Comey.

  • Comey confirmed, again, that even as of his last day in office, Donald Trump was not personally the subject of FBI investigation, neither criminal nor counter-intelligence.
    • Despite media claims otherwise, this fact was not deemed worthy of public disclosure by Comey. IOW, he was happy to let Trump twist in the winds of misleading and false media claims.
  • Comey stated that a key New York Times report asserting Trump campaign collusion was substantively false.
    • Much of the Democrat and media frenzy over the past several months was based on this article.
  • Trump didn’t try to impede the Russia investigation.
    • In fact, he actually encouraged Comey to find out and expose whether any of Trump’s campaign “satellites” engaged in wrongdoing.
  • Comey arranged for a friend of his to leak a memo of his conversation with Trump about Michael Flynn to the NY Times.
    • That memo apparently has not even been given to the Senate Intelligence Committee.
    • The leaking of this memo may put Comey himself in legal jeopardy.
  • Comey admitted that then Attorney General Loretta Lynch pressured him to downplay the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email server to assist Clinton’s election efforts.
    • Comey admitted that he succumbed to Lynch’s pressure.
    • This should result in both a re-opened investigation of Hillary’s server and also a new investigation of Lynch.

SUMMARY: The so-called “resistance” is based totally on lies. It is and always has been nothing more than an attempt to undermine Trump’s ability to govern. It and not Trump’s presidency are the true threat to our electoral and representative system.

The Comey Hearings

Unless you’ve been in Siberia and just got back this morning, you’re aware that the Jim Comey Show is on today. The networks are desperate to get something, anything, on Trump. After 10 months and counting, they refuse to accept there’s no “there” there. One network is pre-empting “All My Children” and the others are doing cut-ins. I remember when there were only 3 stations and Granny would be livid when they interrupted ‘her stories’ because the president was addressing the nation.

There are threads with the latest popping all over, so it makes no sense to post much until after all is said and done.

Here are two short clips of democrats hoping to get the goods on the president they loathe more than cancer:

Comey Never Kept Detailed Memos on His Conversations With Obama Like He Did With Trump

Why didn’t Comey document his conversations with Obama? Comey continues to prove to the public that President Trump’s decision to fire him was the right thing to do.  Comey is beyond corrupt.

It’s no surprise that a lawsuit was filed against Comey late Monday night by Dennis Montgomery alleging he provided overwhelming evidence to the FBI of illegal spying on Americans and they covered it up.

Comey Took Notes of Every Trump Meeting But Did Not Record Hillary’s 3 Hour Interrogation

The lack of a sworn oath does not remove the possibility of criminal penalties against Clinton if she lied to the FBI, though he said he had “no basis to conclude” that she was untruthful.

“Still a crime to lie to us,” Comey told the House Oversight Committee.

FBI policy is not to record interviews as part of its investigations.

Yet the revelations will nonetheless raise questions among Republicans, who have been skeptical of the FBI’s investigation and have demanded to see the transcript of the former Secretary of State’s interview in downtown Washington on Saturday.

Following Comey Testimony, Trump Tells Conservatives ‘We Are Under Siege’

The entrenched interests and failed bitter voices in Washington will do everything in their power to stop us from this righteous cause,” Trump continued on to say. “To stop all of you. They will lie, they will obstruct, they will spread their hatred and prejudice, but we will not back down from doing what is right.”

What’s Really Important

There is a lot going on in the state of world affairs, to be sure. Terrorists in London, the Comey hearings, the GA-6th debate, etc. While these may be important, they pale in comparison to an upcoming event Friday morning. I booked a guided fishing trip months ago with a friend, his son, and my R.J. I had no idea which lake we were going to and he won’t answer his cell phone. The old lady at the bait shop was of little help when I called, she only said: ‘Where do you want to go?’ Walworth County, Wisconsin, has numerous lakes and I assumed he would decide. Apparently not. I chose Lake Delavan and she gave me directions to one of the three boat launches on the lake. I’m getting a little obsessive, but I don’t want anything to go wrong since my grandson has looked forward to this for months. Fishing with him is one of the few real joys in my life anymore.

Now onto the crap.

DC Swamp Goes Crazy for James Comey Hearing

HE WILL ADROITLY TIPTOE AROUND THE FACTS TO AVOID INCRIMINATING HIMSELF. AT THE END OF THE DAY THE MEDIA, THIRSTING FOR BLOOD, WILL BE SORELY DISAPPOINTED.

The Washington establishment and media elite has gone into a full-blown craze over a Senate hearing on Thursday featuring fired FBI Director James Comey.

And while the media continued to hype the hearing, some began expressing worry the hearing would not live up to the hype.

The Senate Intelligence Committee hearing is slated to begin at 10 a.m. eastern and begin with opening statements from the chairman and vice chairman of the committee. Comey will then deliver an opening statement, and senators will have the opportunity to question Comey, with multiple rounds of questions expected. The hearing is expected to last hours. The closed hearing is scheduled at 1 p.m. eastern.

Sessions Is Said to Have Offered to Resign

The situation between Mr. Sessions and Mr. Trump has grown so tense that the attorney general told Mr. Trump in recent weeks that he needed the freedom to do his job and that he could resign if that was what was wanted, according to the two people who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal White House matters. Mr. Trump did not take him up on the offer.

A spokesman for Mr. Sessions declined to comment. A White House spokeswoman did not respond to an email seeking comment.

SESSIONS OFFERED HIS RESIGNATION, TRUMP REFUSED IT. TRUMP IS RIGHT

Jeff Sessions Got Played by Democrats When He Recused Himself from Russian Witch Hunt

Sessions made the announcement in March that he would recuse himself from the Russian investigation — in an effort to appease liberal Democrats.

SESSIONS COULD COMMIT HARA KIRI ON THE SOUTH LAWN AND THE DEMOCRATS WOULD STILL BE UNHAPPY.

And the Russian conspiracy continues to make headlines in the liberal media day after day.

Trump is right to be angry.

ABC reported: “As the White House braces for former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony Thursday, sources tell ABC News the relationship between President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions has become so tense that Sessions at one point recently even suggested he could resign.

Trump’s anger over the recusal has not diminished with time. Two sources close to the president say he has lashed out repeatedly at the attorney general in private meetings, blaming the recusal for the expansion of the Russia investigation, now overseen by Special Counsel and former FBI Director Robert Mueller.

Watch Jon Ossoff Lose The Entire Special Election Debate In Less Than Four Minutes

As part of the debate format, the candidates were given the opportunity to ask each other questions. Handel turned to Ossoff and asked him a question he couldn’t answer: Who he was going to vote for in the special election. As someone who lives outside the district, Ossoff is unable to cast a vote for himself. It went downhill from there for Ossoff.

They Just Won’t Go Away: Michelle Obama Trashes Trump at Apple Conference

The last time we saw Michelle Obama, she was flaunting her poor fashion sense in Italy.  This week the former First Lady was a surprise guest at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in California.  She delivered a fireside chat where she trashed President Trump over global warming junk science and his temporary travel ban from failed Islamist states.

Michelle Obama: “I think my message earlier was, you know, think about that higher purpose. Because we are at a time in this country when we need problem solvers out there who are committed who believe in this country who believe in the value of diversity and believe in, you know, the value of immigrants, and believe that global warming is real.”

Ugh.  Won’t these people please just go away.  You’ve done enough damage Michelle for one lifetime.  Now shoo.

At the corner of Incompetent Avenue and Fantasy Street

Incompetent

Two days ago, The New York Times ran a report claiming that President Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey to drop the agency’s investigation into former national security adviser Mike Flynn.

Yesterday, Breitbart reported that earlier this month, Comey himself testified before the Senate, under oath, that no one in the Trump administration ever asked him to halt any investigation.

It would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something that — without an appropriate purpose.

“I mean where oftentimes they give us opinions that we don’t see a case there, and so you ought to stop investing resources in it.  But I’m talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason, that would be a very big deal.

“It’s not happened in my experience.”
