USAian Political Power Modelled After Animal Farm

“They fired Sally Yates. They fired Preet Bharara. And they fired James Comey, the very man leading he investigation. This does not seem to be a coincidence,” Schumer said shortly after the announcement, calling for a special independent prosecutor into the Trump campaign’s ties to the Kremlin.
 
“Any person who he appoints to lead the Russian investigation will be concerned that he or she will meet the same fate as Director Comey”

See where this is going? Trump is not shy to obstruct justice. He has the power to do that but will the other two branches of government allow that? Will Congress impeach Trump? That’s the only solution short of violence.

Certainly Trump has committed high crimes and misdemeanours. That started before the campaign of 2016. Now, he’s doing it from the Oval Office. On the list so far: sexual harassment, bullying, racial discrimination, multiple breaches of the Constitution, and treason, facilitating Putin’s influence to affect the USAian government. The only higher power is Congress. I would bet every Democrat would support impeachment. I would bet at least half the Republicans would. Make it so. Do it sooner rather than later before Trump stirs up an uncivil war between his loyal followers and decent people, paralyzing USA and permitting Putin to assert global power.

    Who says I’m Left Wing Dougie?

    You left wing types are mentally ill.

  3. 2016/11/8 could mark a great disaster but USA has not yet fallen into Trump/Putin pit. The situation could be reversed if sentient beings actually vote next time. 50-60% turnouts are dangerous for democracy. Tyrants grab power when good people do nothing.

    12/7/1942, 9/11/2001, and 11/8/2016 will all be burned into the history books by 2100 as dates that caused the USA to wake up to new dangers and take abrupt corrective action. Want to hazard a guess as to which will be considered more significant?

    Since when does what happened in the past have anything to do with President Richard Milhaus Trump’s current behavior.

    So its Vince Foster again, eh Dougie. You right wing types really have to give it a rest.

    You delusional old miser, Trump did not act alone on this. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein recommended that Comey be fired.

    The current FBI Director is an articulate and persuasive speaker about leadership and the immutable principles of the Department of Justice. He deserves our appreciation for his public service. As you and I have discussed, however, I cannot defend the Director’s handling of the conclusion of the investigation of Secretary Clinton’s emails, and I do not understand his refusal to accept the nearly universal judgment that he was mistaken. Almost everyone agrees that the Director made serious mistakes; it is one of the few issues that unites people of diverse perspectives.

    So the reasoning behind this firing, was due to the fact that Comey refused to prosecute Hillary Clinton. Really Robert, when are you going to stop reading fake news on CNN? How many times are you going to bang your head on ARM server boards, how many months will it be before you realize that you are NEVER getting a SOLO? How many??

  7. Grece says:

    Comey was fired for covering-up the actions of Hillary. This video even proves it without a doubt.

    Clinton did the same thing, well almost, but nonetheless, it’s funny you failed to even mention this. In your instance, perhaps you were helping the natives of Nunavut with Linux at the time and did not have electricity.

    – Clinton fires FBI director on July, 19th http://www.nytimes.com/1993/07/20/us/defiant-fbi-chief-removed-from-job-by-the-president.html
