We The People have gotten a terrifying insight into the dysfunction of the D.C. swamp thanks to the Citizen President residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Donald Trump is not one to dabble in pomp, circumstance, and other tools of the progressive procrastinators on Capitol Hill…that was something that became readily apparent very early in the business mogul’s political career.
Nor is Donald Trump a man who traffics in bovine fecal matter. If he’s calling you out, you had better believe that you did something worth being called out for. If you could strip the word “ruthless” of its negative aura, it would be the perfect way to describe the President’s governing style.
Dan Rather put it best: The man has the temperament of a wolverine.
Those administrating below him have taken this cue to find their own inner animal as well, with the republican-controlled congress absolutely tearing Rod Rosenstein to shreds this week, before turning their attention to the FBI as a whole.
The FBI has, in turn, decided that they won’t be playing nice with Congress any time soon, and specifically in the case of Hillary Clinton’s ability to mysteriously stay out of handcuffs back in 2016.
Paul Sperry reports at RealClearInvestigations — the investigative reporting affiliate of trusted polling aggregator RealClearPolitics — that the FBI is refusing to allow members of Congress to review intelligence that alleges Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch interfered in the Hillary Clinton email investigation:
“The FBI had little problem leaking “unverified” dirt from Russian sources on Donald Trump and his campaign aides – and even basing FISA wiretaps on it. But according to the Justice Department’s inspector general, the bureau is refusing to allow even members of Congress with top security clearance to see intercepted material alleging political interference by President Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch.”
Of course, much speculation was made about so-called “tarmac meeting” between Lynch and Bill Clinton – husband of the accused in the FBI’s case and former President of the United States.
Given the reticence of the disgraced agency, one can only assume that these documents must contain information that would be found to be damaging to the democratic narrative and a possible final nail in the coffin of the FBI’s credibility.
Given the bullish maneuvering our populist President, and the fact that the nation is currently trending hard to the right, we don’t doubt that these documents will be provided to Congress sooner rather than later.
