We already saw this movie.

Didn't we already see this movie?

I think we all already saw this movie.

The only thing **different** about how Comey won't answer the questions put to him by these Congressional commitees [other than the standard "I don't recall"] is he won't be saying:

"I can't comment on that because it's currently part of an ongoing federal investigation."
Instead Comey will be saying THIS:

"On the advice of my legal counsel, I invoke my Fifth amendment rights."

or

"My counsel has advised me not to discuss this, and so I won't."
There is **some** value to Congressional hearings, if people are willing to testify.

But all these people are being subpoenaed. They won't be appearing willingly and they aren't gonna VOLUNTEER anything.

It's a show for Congress.
THIS is where the real action is and always has been.

Anybody telling you differently is wrong.

Trump wiped his feet on the largest Republican field ever, one that included plenty of experienced politicians on his way to the nomination. Then he handily took Hillary out.

BUT THE POLLS SAID he was losing the whole time. Losing badly, in fact.

We’re repeating 2016. Amazing. Image
The 2016 media polls had the guy who

1) wiped out THE biggest and deepest GOP field ever & then

2) beat a supposedly strong challenger in Hillary

losing every step of the way, always behind, trying desperation measures & 11th hour resets.

Biden is FAR weaker than Hillary.
And as if to prove my point:

Big if true.

Remember, an indictment is when somebody turns DOWN a plea bargain.

They tell the US Attorney "I think me and my lawyer can beat your case at trial."

It's taking chances with a jury. If convicted after a trial you get far more time

Something else a lot of commentators need to pay attention to: a prosecutor does not have to show the grand jury ALL THE EVIDENCE; this isn’t the trial.

Only sufficient evidence to sustain a criminal charge is necessary.
Though they are not seeing **everything** the US Attorney has until the discovery phase begins prior to the trial, oftentimes the defendant & lawyer **realize the prosecution has ENOUGH evidence** that escaping conviction is extremely unlikely if goest to the courtroom.

The dumbasses literally think they've got Trump at last!

This is gonna be SO MUCH FUN.

Note the claim Trump paid only $750 in taxes in those two years is 100% false.

LOL. They are gonna run with this already debunked story because all they have left is desperate gaslighting. Image

OH NO TRUMP'S LOST BOTH CINDY MCCAIN **AND** TOM RIDGE!

[Googles quickly to remember who Tom Ridge is]
I just remember THE LAST TIME I ever paid attention to Tom Ridge.

It was...the Kermit Gosnell case.

Because Gov. Ridge at the time **relaxed** the clinic inspection laws.

I wrote about that here back in the day on my old blog:

People who got used as sources both on & off record spent over a year telling Bartiromo & Dobbs that the DOJ & AG Barr were perfectly fine railroading @GenFlynn's ass all the way to prison and gee what a shame that was.

Until April of this year.

Since they can't spin their usual off the record bullshit about Barr personally escorting the General to prison any longer, this is the kind of stuff you'll be hearing until the indictments actually drop.

It is what it is.
One particular person who I won't name publicly got on Bartiromo's and Dobb's shows repeatedly in 2018 all the way through April 2020 and in every appearance raged at AG Barr for not doing anything to stop the railroading of General Flynn.

Biden literally says he’s not going to say what his position is on the Supreme Court while **he’s running for the job of President of the United States**.

Not only has he called an early morning lid 11 times in September, he’s hiding his positions on vital issues.
“Vote for me because I ain’t telling you shit about what I’ll do with the Supreme Court!” is a pretty bold strategy, I’ll give Biden that.
