I remember when I went into a department store in Gaborone after a year out in the village where the sum total of the products for sale at the "shop" were: 10 packs of cigarettes; 20 cans of beer; a few sundry packs of cold medicine, bandaids and the like; every other day or so a few loaves of bread.

The department stores and groceries in Gaborone were dazzling with hundreds of items per aisle.

And then when I got back to the U.S. and went into a typical U.S. grocer I was awe struck. Scores of thousands of products crammed into tens of thousands of square feet of shelves, 7+ varieties of everything . . . it was overwhelming.

In the case of the Lephephe--Gaborone--Atlanta continuum it has nothing to do with Capitalism vs. Socialism; just plain Less to More "development."

So in other words, Comey was a thorn in the side of both Democrats and Republicans. Of course he's fine so long as he was only investigating Democrats.

@Andy: The President firing the FBI director because he (the FBI director) is investigating potential voting fraud that may have gotten him (the President) into power is pretty clearly abusing power. Hope that helps clarify things for you.

Were you this unhinged when Willie Clinton fired Wm Sessions?

Get this..it seems the FBI hasn't even STARTED an investigation of unmasking/leaking of names of US citizens swept up in FISA warrants. :shock:

WTF????
Plenty of reason to fire the guy if you ask me.

The real reason Trump canned Jim Comey

The straw that broke the camel’s back for now-ousted FBI Director James Comey was the investigation he apparently wasn’t doing.

President Trump’s much-reported frustration with Comey almost certainly arose from the G-man’s failure to get to the bottom of Obama aides’ illegal leaks of classified information — leaks aimed at undermining the incoming Trump administration.

And top Republicans in Congress shared that concern.

Under grilling last week, the director refused to say whether he had launched a probe into illegal leaks by the Obama team of highly classified intelligence intercepts of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and possibly other private US citizens working on the Trump transition.

“I don’t want to answer that,” Comey told Senate Judicary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley. The chairman described that reticence as odd given how the government “regularly acknowledges” when it’s investigating classified leaks.





Grassley appeared skeptical the FBI had opened an investigation at all — even suggesting the bureau didn’t want to investigate itself. “There are several senior FBI officials who would’ve had access to the classified information that was leaked, including yourself and the deputy director,” the senator said, referring to Andrew McCabe, now the FBI’s acting director.

Comey’s reticence contrasts sharply with his testimony in March, when he made a show of announcing he was investigating alleged ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.



“I’ve been authorized to confirm that the FBI is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election,” Comey trumpeted then, including “investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government.”

The double standard irked Grassley, as well as House Intelligence Committee member Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC). The Republicans reflected the frustration of the president, who tweeted for Comey to probe the classified leaks, arguing they’re “illegal” and pointing out that Comey himself said the leaks have been “unusually active” since Trump took power.

Anger boiled over Monday, after two ex-officials, Obama intelligence czar James Clapper and holdover Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, testified that nobody at the FBI had talked to them, four months after the leaks, even though they’d be key witnesses in any probe.

That suggests Comey either never opened an investigation or has been dragging his feet. The next day, Trump fired Comey.

A week earlier, Grassley sent Comey’s boss, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, a letter urging him to make sure the leaks are “fully and impartially investigated.” Grassley indicated he wasn’t confident Comey or his deputy, McCabe, was up to the task.

He even listed McCabe as among the “potential suspects” in the leaks scandal. Grassley suggested McCabe is politically compromised due to his “financial and political links” to a close Hillary Clinton campaign operative. The senator added that McCabe has a “conflict of interest” investigating “what appear to be multiple politically motivated leaks of classified information related to the Russia controversy.”

White House won't confirm Trump recorded Comey talks

On Thursday, Grassley laid to rest the idea — widespread among Democrats — that Trump’s motive for firing Comey was fear of where the FBI’s Russia probe might lead.

Grassley revealed that Comey had ID’d the “targets” of the probe in a recent closed-door session with him and ranking Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein — and Trump was not one of them. “The president’s letter said that Director Comey told him he was not under investigation,” Grassley said. “Sen. Feinstein and I heard nothing [from Comey’s private briefing] that contradicted the president’s statement.”

He said speculation Trump is under investigation is “unfounded.” Feinstein, a respected Democrat, didn’t disagree.

The 10-month-old Russia probe remains an investigation in search of a crime. The Obama team’s unmasking of Flynn’s identity in foreign-surveillance reports and leaking that classified information to the Washington Post is a crime in search of an investigation.

Unfortunately, justice will have to wait for Comey’s replacement to launch an aggressive inquiry to hunt down the leakers and lock them up. And he may first have to clean house to do it, starting with Comey’s deputy.

You missed this in your New York Post quote. ;)

Talk about conspiracy theories and tin foil hats. :lol:

But do not worry, the GOP will drop Trump after the "tax reform" and have their pockets full of money. ;)

He quotes Senator Grassley and a Senate committee question and Comey's answer, which is part of the public record. What part exactly is not true?

I realize 4th Amendment protections might not be important to you but they are to 99% of the posters here.

It's a Hell of a lot more important than whether some guy who worked for the Trump campaign for a month owns real estate in Ukraine. Speaking of Senators, right wing partisan Diane Feinstein (D San Francisco) told Little Wolfie Blitzer on CNN last week there is no evidence of any collusion by the Trump campaign with Russia. She's on the Senate Intelligence Committee and gets closed-door CIA and FBI briefings. Tell us where you get YOUR information?

Well, a guy telling that there is no FBI investigation on Russia connection is either ignorant or a liar. Or both.

So it goes.

What ????? I wouldn't have thought it possible to get hypoxemia in the Pyrenees. He didn't say that. He said there is apparently no FBI investigation into the unmasking and leaking.

Day after firing Comey Trump meets with the Russians.

Trump is not only the Commander in Chief, he is the Troller in Chief. He is driving the media and the left wing moonbats to never before heights of insanity (not to mention vulgarity and violence).

I do believe the 2018 election campaign has begun. Appears to me it will probably be an even bigger slaughter than the 2016 election.

One has to wonder if the Democratic party as we know it will still exist...
