Endless Investigations...

May 15, 2017

The uproar over James Comey’s firing continued through Mother’s Day and looks likely to still be foaming away on Father’s Day. Liberals haven’t been this upset over someone leaving a job since Jon Stewart quit “The Daily Show.”

The latest demand is for a special prosecutor (someone unconstrained by time, budget or any other limits, like the one who investigated Bill Clinton – did Democrats really like the way that worked out?) to look into a 19-word Trump tweet. Trump wrote that before Comey leaks to the press, he should consider if there might be “tapes” of their conversations. That set off cries of “another Watergate!” (Democrats react to any whiff of Republican scandal as predictably as elephants react to mice in old cartoons).

As anxious as we all are to grind the government to a halt, ignore every pressing issue and waste a lot of taxpayer money on a never-ending investigation into things that most likely never even happened, let’s all take a deep breath and ponder the differences between Trump’s tweet and the Watergate tapes. First, Trump never said there were tapes. Second, even if there are, as the linked article points out, it would be perfectly legal in DC for him to make them. Third, Nixon was trying to prevent the release of tapes that might incriminate him. Trump seemed to be implying that if any such tapes exist, they would support his version of events and he would release them.

Fourth, and this is the major point that all of Trump’s critics calling for endless investigations continue to ignore: Russia didn’t cost Hillary Clinton the election. Hillary Clinton cost Hillary Clinton the election.

Personally, I still can’t figure out why anyone thinks Putin wanted Trump to win. Put aside partisan politics; just on the basis of common sense, why would Putin prefer the USA to be run by an America-first proponent who promised to rebuild the US military instead of a woman who’d already okayed the sale of 20% of America’s uranium to Russia? Between Russian donations to the Clinton Foundation and the classified information he’d likely hacked from her unsecure email server, if she’d become President, maybe he could have gotten a bargain rate on the other 80%.

    Dear Mike,

    You're spot on here! The "Cadre" of Establishment Politicis & Media Libs is very busy trying to pull the rug out from under the President WE elected before he actually drains the swamp. I usually don't believe "Conspiracy Theories", but this one is so obvious it's hard not to see. It is down right unAmerican! Please keep up your good work toward saving our Country!

    I think the government should focus all of its resources to end the leaks that keep feeding the fake news. When they find out who is leaking, they should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. I am sick of the fake news and the drama that surrounds it! I believe that President Trump should stop the Press Briefings and give out written releases to the press. The President should re-install the fireside chats and give Americans news directly from the President.

    Your defense of this twit in the WH along with his ignorant press secretaries is ridiculous, as are your arguments. Endless investigations? Really? LOL. We have barely begun investigating this traitor and his corrupt family. Continue to close your eyes to this attack on our democracy and Constitution. It only points out your lack of principles and immorality...

    I just want the investigations to be final and public! There are a lot that congress needs to be doing and do not get done due to trying to stop Trump! I agree that Trump believes any thing that comes up will show him cleared unlike all the rest who clearly did break rules and in some cases broke the laws yet nothing happened except maybe a fine! I wish someone would investigate Obama's non-profit being setup while he was President and taking of donations for favors. That is an investigation that would get democrats off Mr. Trump! Today, Obama is truly behind much of the unrest and constant attacks on law and order under Trump! I think what that group is doing is undermining the principles of American government and is supported by those who want us to fail. How could Congress approve his non-profit while still in office? Obama and Hillary want us totally under the UN with one of them at the helm!
