For John, BLUF: If it is the "Russian thing" then President Trump appears to have jumped from the frying pan into the fire. Nothing to see here; just move along.
This is from The Washington Times and Reporter Tammy Bruce, Thursday, 11 May 2017.
Here are two interesting paragraphs:
The fact is this: With the firing of Mr. Comey, Andrew McCabe is now the acting FBI director. About Mr. McCabe’s wife, the Daily Mail reported: “Before McCabe was appointed as the Deputy Director of the FBI, his wife Jill McCabe ran as a Democrat for the Virginia State senate in 2015. Her campaign received funds from the state Democratic Party and a political action committee run by Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe. McAuliffe is a close friend of the Clintons and before his group, Common Good VA, donated to McCabe’s campaign, Hillary Clinton headlined a fundraiser for the PAC.”I will be interested in seeing who the President nominates to be the new Director of the FBI and how the US Senate responds to this nomination, providing advice and consent.
Even without this Democratic partisan waiting in the wings to take over the FBI, it’s clear no investigation at the FBI is quashed because the director leaves. No matter who takes the helm, the work in progress continues.
The other thing to consider is if, absent leaked information, we would ever know of the gross carelessness of Mrs Hillary Clinton in handling classified information. Would we ever know about how the Democratic National Committee mistreated Senator Bernie Sanders during the 2016 Primaries? Would we ever known about the sleaze at the DNC Headquarters?
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
