Really, this is how Washington Republicans want to spend their lame duck session…when in deference to the late President George H. W. Bush’s funeral…they kicked the budget issue can down the road another two weeks? Don’t they want to pass a GOP budget before the Democrats take over the house in January? Really??
and nothing happens? But any implied violence against the president brings out the Secret Service bigly?
Asking for three hundred million friends…
Following the former FBI director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate…Speaker of the House Paul Ryan once again defended a clueless president:
“the president’s new at this…He’s learning as he goes.”
Ignorantia juris non excusat
One of these days, Rep. Ryan is going to hurt himself twisting in the wind so violently. Let’s be ready to remove him in 2018!!
Someone needs to call the president’s bluff and file a FOIA request for the tapes that he threatened former FBI Director James Comey with this morning (see earlier post).
That should be a real cool experience.
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a law that gives you the right to access information from the federal government. It is often described as the law that keeps citizens in the know about their government.
From the Associated Press:
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on President Donald Trump and the FBI (all times local):
President Donald Trump is warning that former FBI Director James Comey “better hope” that there are no “tapes” of their conversations.
Trump tweeted Friday, “James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”
Trump fired Comey on Tuesday, later saying that “he wasn’t doing a good job.”
In the termination letter to Comey, Trump thanked him for telling the president “three times” that he personally is not under investigation for collusion with Russia during his 2016 campaign.
Trump said in an NBC News interview Thursday that Comey told him once over dinner and twice by telephone that he isn’t under investigation.
Comey has not commented since he was fired.
