Turning a Page…

Sean Hannity: Presidential Proctologist! is all riled up. His team has spent all day combing through the FBI texts that Il Douché called “BOMBSHELLS!” And no doubt, to Il Douché, they probably were; to everyone else, they’re familiar sentiments. “This can’t be happening” Peter Strozk wrote election night, followed later by “I’m so depressed” once the results were in. But, I guess if not applauding Il Douché is treasonous, these texts are capital crimes.

But: a couple of questions remain. Sean must think that judges are as dumb as his fan base, and when presented with a file filled with opposition research on Tr**p, and are told the information was gathered at the behest of qb the DNC or Clinton campaign was behind it.

And the complaint that Christopher Steele, the too-perfectly named agent behind the “dirty dossier,” got information about Tr**p’s dealing with the Russian government from—you better sit down—members of said Russian government makes no sense at all. Who are you supposed to get intel on the Russian gov’t from? Carter Page? (And, when you get down to it, this whole FISA abuse story ends up being about protecting the rights of a suspected Russian agent, which isn’t bad news for Carter Page, but not a good look for the military-obeisant White House.)

And if two people exchanging messages containing statements shared by more than half the county is the best they could come up with…(there’s also the shocking disclosure that Obama was very interested in hearing how the investigation is going—either Hillary’s emails, or Russian hacking of our election. They’re both proof of the left’s politization of law enforcement. This from a man who has no problem with Il Douché wanting to know if an assistant Attorney General is on his “team.” I guess that’s simply part of the “extreme vetting” all potential hires are subjected to…

Take now-former Staff Secretary Rob Porter, a man whose history of spousal abuse was known for weeks by the White House, but continued to have access to highly classified documents, even though he never had clearance. (Again, not a good look for an administration that continues to call for criminal prosecution of Hillary over an email server that might have exposed classified documents.)

And, hey! Look who helped write the release announcing Porter’s defenestration? Why, it’s Hope Hicks, Porter’s current paramour (which does not take her out of the Michael Wolff “Who is Tr**p shtupping” sweepstakes! We’re assuming his belief that there’s “nothing sweeter” than sleeping with another man’s wife” extends to the girlfriends of his staff.
