Is Comey a great guy? I don’t know. My guess is that Trump did not think Comey sufficiently dependable under pressure. When I say that, I don’t mean it as a putdown of Comey. I could not handle that job either. Few people could.
During the presidential election, the shenanigans of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration put Comey under enormous pressure. The fact his boss, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, met privately with Bill Clinton on same airport tarmac in Phoenix on June 27, 2016 surely did not help (Loretta Lynch ‘regrets’ Clinton meeting aboard plane: ‘I wish I had seen around that corner’ (washingtontimes.com)).
Unfortunately, Democrat Liberals don’t seem to want to give up their war against Trump. So they are using Comey’s firing as another absurd excuse to call for a special prosecutor. Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) is happily leading the charge. CSPAN has the video here (Senator Schumer Remarks on Director Comey Firing (c-span.org)). Of course, as usual, Schumer is effectively lying (see Flashback: Schumer was against Comey before he was for him (washingtonexaminer.com)).
Consider that Schumer is doing his absolute best to pressure the Deputy Attorney General to appoint an independent prosecutor when no one has ever presented any evidence that one is needed. Yet the Democrat Liberal media will do what Schumer just did. They will try to make it appear that Trump fired Comey as part of a coverup.
When we partake of the news media, we must understand the meaning of this word.
noun, plural innuendos, innuendoes.
1. an indirect intimation about a person or thing, especially of a disparaging or a derogatory nature.
a. a parenthetic explanation or specification in a pleading.
b. (in an action for slander or libel) the explanation and elucidation of the words alleged to be defamatory.
c. the word or expression thus explained.
Without any evidence, Democrat Liberals are trying to destroy the reputation of President Trump and officials in his administration. When ordinary citizens do this sort of thing to other ordinary citizens, we call it spreading gossip. The fact that supposedly honorable politicians and respectable journalists do this sort of thing, gossip against people they oppose, does not make it any more acceptable.
