From hearing Comey to fearing Hillary — and most points in between — it’s time for a look back at the week that was. Personal Liberty Digest® presents: The WIRE!
Former FBI Director James Comey’s Thursday testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee may have been the biggest letdown for the Democrats since Nana Hilldawg went “hiking.”
So, does this mean we’re back to hating Comey again?
Barely moments into questioning, Comey had already confirmed President Donald Trump never asked him to back off the Russian hacking investigation; destroying the Democrat’s main talking point of the last six months.
The fallout is expected to affect the next two election cycles.
In honor of the Comey hearing, the Democratic Party headquarters served up a special lunch.
Dig in. It’s probably all you’re gonna get for a while.
All told, the most Comey could offer was that he thinks Trump is a jerk.
If making people uncomfortable was an impeachable offense, Trump would have to get in line.
“Director Comey, do you think you would have been fired if Hillary had won?”
Given her track record, that’s a best-case scenario.
Comey did tell Senator James Risch (R-ID) that the infamous February 14 story inThe New York Times alleging “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence” was “not true.”
At a real media outlet, that would be cause for concern. At the Times, it’s business as usual.
California Democrat Representative Ted Lieu insisted “the Comey hearings are showing Americans in real time what the felony of Obstruction of Justice looks like.” To be fair: He was technically not wrong.
It’s not the “Federal Bureau of Matters.”
One Republican had a rough time of it. Arizona Senator John McCain seemed like he was struggling to stay afloat, even during his own questioning of Comey.
If he’s trying to make the case for term limits, he nailed it.
Comey didn’t hold back about his belief in Russia’s sinister intent. “They’re coming after America, which I hope we all love equally. They want to undermine our credibility in the face of the world. They think that this great experiment of ours is a threat to them. So they’re going to try to run it down and dirty it up as much as possible.”
If only someone had warned us.
Another week, another Islamic terrorist attack in London; this time leaving eight dead and 48 wounded. It’s almost like unchecked hordes of Muslim immigrants leads to unchecked violence.
If only someone had warned us Part 2.
There’s no honor among Islamofascists: ISIS terrorists launched a homicidal attack on the Iranian capital of Teheran, killing 17. While the slaughter went on outside, the Iranian parliament took action by shrieking “death to America.”
Islamic terrorists also struck Paris, where innocent civilians were trapped inside the Notre Dame Cathedral.
Either Europe gets serious about Islamic terrorism or gets used to this posture.
Say hello to the newest hero of the left: Reality Winner; a young anti-Trump activist who used her top secret clearance to leak classified material to the media in an effort to damage the president.
The law says she should go to prison. The Democrats think she should be the next attorney general.
In addition to her espionage, Ms. Winner also offered allegiance to Iran and even spoke of burning down the White House.
The latter moved her ahead of “Chelsea” Manning in the race for the Democrats’ 2020 nomination.
Winner also told her sister she planned to use the “pretty white girl” defense.
Didn’t get her bail, but it’ll be a great prison nickname.
Among the also-rans in the U.K.’s snap election: Lord Buckethead, a gigantic Tickle Me Elmo, and what appears to be Boss Hogg’s cousin.
Brits don’t get to make fun of our elections anymore. Ever.
And, Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau and former U.S. President Barack Obama enjoyed a little bro-time in Montreal this week.
You two should get a room; preferably on their side of the border.
And that’s your week in review! For the Personal Liberty Digest®, I’m Ben Crystal saying “See you next week on the WIRE!”
