The most disturbing aspect of all the Comeyness has less to do with Comey and more to do with the organization he led under the Obama administration.
It is clear that the mess at the DOJ in general and at the FBI in specific, is pretty bad. The upper level management in the FBI was nothing but a bunch of Democrat operatives executing their subterfuge under the imprimatur of the federal government. As progressives are wont to do, they decided what they wanted the outcome to be and then proceeded to build a narrative to get there – a very Americanized version of the old Soviet “Show me the man and I’ll find you his crime” approach.
The Democrats are making it abundantly clear that they don’t care about the law, department tradition, policy, or rules – and Comey’s outing just reinforces the existence of a class of morally and ethically “flexible” individuals who value self-preservation at all costs. They are all political prostitutes, ready to do whatever is asked of them for a price.
Sort of reminds one of the anecdote attributed to both Winston Churchill and George Bernard Shaw:
“Churchill: “Madam, would you sleep with me for five million pounds?”
Socialite: “My goodness, Mr. Churchill… Well, I suppose… we would have to discuss terms, of course… ”
Churchill: “Would you sleep with me for five pounds?”
Socialite: “Mr. Churchill, what kind of woman do you think I am?!”
Churchill: “Madam, we’ve already established that. Now we are haggling about the price”
I’ve no idea if Trump did any of what he is accused – or if any of the people charged so far did. I’m pretty sure Mueller is trying to “Scooter Libby” one or more targets (Patrick Fitzgerald was never after Libby, he was trying to turn up the heat on Libby to get him to roll on Dick Cheney) in hopes of reaching higher up. I do know these “special counsels” have used the threat of being charged for lying about something that never happened to force people to do things they otherwise wouldn’t (process crimes that have no underlying criminal offense need to be outlawed).
What worries me is that this seems to be a cultural aspect of our government, there seems to be a caste system that has developed where these sycophantic people reside. They have adopted the idea that what is good for the deep state is good for them as well – and the American idea of truth and justice are simply quaint little ideas with no real purpose. These folk are a permanent caste of untouchables, existing simply to serve the will of their own deep state desires – and the number one common desire of the deep state is survival.
