Admitting the Coup d’état
It is rather difficult to understand how the Federal Bureau of Investigation, known around and about as the FBI, G-men and once as Hoovermen, can get away trying to stage a coup, actually planning the overthrow of a sitting president.
Along this same line, to hear a fired acting director, namely Andrew McCabe, bragging about his part in an illegal and audacious act is nothing short of a criminal admission.
Before Mr. McCabe took over, his buddy – and former FBI director – James Comey was canned by the man they were trying to ice, or to be nice, I’ll say oust.
It has been surprising that no federal prosecutor has let both of these book hustlers get away with such incriminations.
These two guys have brought great disrepute to the world’s best law enforcement agency. They have made the founder, John Edgar Hoover, look like an angel.
Director Hoover kept everybody in line, I mean all the Congress people and presidents. In those 48 years, Edgar’s secret files bulged with exciting facts so many “patriots” didn’t want the public to know. Yes, Edgar had some skeletons of his own. Muckrakers Walter Winchell and Drew Pearson had the inside and tipped off the public.
It took years for Mr. Hoover to admit existence of the Mafia, organized crime.
Now Mr. Comey and Mr. McCabe may not have been cross dressers or gambling habitués. They sure did make every effort to overrule the will of a majority of Americans.
In other words, their acts were treacherous before and after the 45th president was sworn in by the Chief Justice of the United States.
Supposedly, the FBI and all of its agents are pledged to be non-political – and to preserve and protect every citizen. Plus, enforce all laws equally.
I repeat, how and why the ousted director and acting leader can get away with trying to stage a third world coup d’état is beyond understanding.
They included Deputy Attorney General Ron Rosenstein. This is equally shocking. The latter has managed to escape punishment by the president (so far). Looks like he will be leaving the office none too soon now that new Attorney General William Barr is on the job.
It is okay if the main stream media and haters of all kinds don’t like DJT (Donald J. Trump). It is not proper, legal or the American ideal to attempt a real overthrow. In the USA even the military can’t and won’t make such an evil effort.
Just how historians and academics may explain history of 2016 forward is a long way off. They will.
Director Hoover had a questionable career. One thing would be sure though. Mr. Comey and Mr. McCabe would have been weeded out and disgraced even further than they are, too.
Lady Scales of Justice hasn’t changed. She is blindfolded, balanced and wields a (mighty) sword.
The nasties like Mr. Comey, Mr. McCabe, Mr. Rosenstein, and a few others, will face the Lady. Writing books won’t be their vindications.
Are orange jump suits waiting in the wings? Could well be.
