The Watering Hole, Monday, March 20th, 2017: Comey, You Owe Us

After FBI director James Comey wantonly helped to destroy Hillary Clinton’s chances to win the Presidential election, thereby saddling us with the madman trump and his anti-semitic, white supremacist cabal, Comey owes all of us, big time. Today he has his chance to start making up for his treacherous douchebaggery.

Adam Schiff (D-CA) of the House Intelligence Committee stated yesterday regarding trump’s various claims about Trump Tower being wiretapped:

“I hope that we can put an end to this wild goose chase… What the president said was just patently false. And the wrecking ball it has created has just banged into our British allies and our German allies and it’s continuing to grow in terms of damage and he needs to put an end to this.”

In addition, both Comey and James Clapper, the former director of national intelligence, will be testifying today in a hearing on the Russia-trump connections. According to Bloomberg,

“Committee chairman Devin Nunes said Tuesday that he has also invited National Security Agency chief Mike Rogers, former director of national intelligence James Clapper, former CIA director John Brennan, former acting attorney general Sally Yates and two executives from CrowdStrike Inc., a cybersecurity company, to the March 20 hearing.”

The Bloomberg article continues,

“The hearing will likely be the first in-depth public inquiry into allegations of connections between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and the Russian government, as well as Russia’s efforts to influence the U.S. election…The House Intelligence panel’s top Democrat, Adam Schiff of California, told reporters Tuesday that Comey wasn’t forthcoming with information when the panel held a closed hearing last week.

“The first obstacle we met was the FBI director’s unwillingness to answer questions,” Schiff said.

Comey had better overcome that “unwillingness to answer questions” and start being more “forthcoming with information” today. He owes it to the entire country, which is now becoming unrecognizable as a civilized nation under the trump regime. If Comey has the least tiny bit of patriotism in him, then he MUST be truthful and share any and all information that he’s hiding.

As I’ve said before, “Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.” OUR country demands no less.

This is our Open Thread – talk about whatever you want, but also, please post any updates you hear/read about today’s hearings.

  1. Opening statements:

    Nunes says we’re going after leakers, Schiff says we’re looking at Russians and Americans colluding with them.

  2. Rooney, 1st Republican questioner trying to find who knows about Americans talking to foreigners who could leak names (like Flynn and Sessions.)

    Gowdy reminding Admiral we can punish leakers, hard.

  3. Republican Stefanik asks Comey if Russians hacked Republican organizations and people?

    Comey says yes, but no release of and Republican information.

        • Yeah, I figured everyone would, but… The best I can do is tell you about the time a former boss took me out to dinner. Before leaving the restaurant we stopped in the men’s room. While attending to my business I heard my boss say “How tacky.”

          While zipping up, I turned to see him adjusting the vest of his 3-piece suit, while looking in the mirror. My boss was a fastidious dress and I saw nothing amiss so I asked “What’s tacky?”

          He lifted the vest and put a finger under the belt he was wearing and pulled on it. “This,” he said, “A stretch belt with a 3-piece suit.”

          “But nobody can see it,” I said.

          “But I know its there and its tacky!”

          So Jane, the thing is, I just had to express my feeling about it! 🙂

    • What a third of the country doesn’t understand is that Trump and his cronies are domestic adversaries that want to hurt the USA.

  4. SoS Tillerson is blowing off a major NATO meeting next month as he has decided that going to Russia during the same time period is in the best interest of the U.S.! Fuck this/these traitors. Let’s nail these pigfuckers, and Putin’s backdoor men to trumps wall.

  5. Donald Trump in a bunny suit.
    How to give kids nightmares for the rest of their life.
    Try to fathom what the Easter egg roll at the White house is going to be like under the current administration for the kids and parents that thought they were fortunate to win that lottery.
    Now reflect back on how it was handled previously.
    What could go wrong?
