Hillary mocks Comey for IG revelation that he used private email

Published

on

Somehow I always knew that the 2016 election would end up with all major players sh*tposting about each other on Twitter. When’s Obama going to come get some of this?

Comey being Comey, if he responds at all it’ll probably be with some mawkish image of Lady Liberty weeping or himself silhouetted against the twilit sky at Arlington, standing by JFK’s grave. (Thanks to redsteeze for that idea.) There can be only one proper response, though: “I should have arrested you when I had the chance.”

Because he did have the chance. And he would have been fully within his rights to do so. It’s right there in the statute in black and white: “Gross negligence.”

Luckily for Trump he didn’t, though, as whoever replaced Hillary as nominee after her indictment undoubtedly would have been more electable. How could they have been less?

If you don’t understand what “but my emails” means (usually it’s “but her emails”), it’s something Democrats post on social media sarcastically whenever a new scandal breaks involving Trump or his administration. The point is that Emailgate is supposedly small potatoes in the big picture, cynically inflated by Republicans during the campaign to change the subject from whatever sordid thing Trump just said or did. (“But her emails!”) It’s this bit from page 425 of the IG report that’s got her attention:

The IG found that Comey’s habit of forwarding emails to his personal account was “inconsistent” with DOJ policy that official business should be conducted via personal email only when “exigent circumstances” require, a perfectly fair wrist slap. But what Comey did and what Clinton did are night and day. Comey used a personal account at Gmail, with all of the security that Google provides. Hillary used a personal homebrew server, which didn’t have the same robust security. Comey’s usage seems to have been for personal convenience with respect to certain messages containing attachments. Hillary’s usage was comprehensive — all messages routed to her personal server, which reeks of an effort to evade automatic archiving by government servers. And of course Comey’s use was confined to unclassified business. Hillary’s wasn’t, which is a big deal. And which, again, is why he would have been perfectly entitled to recommend indicting her. There’s staggering hypocrisy in Comey’s email practices, in other words, only if you overlook literally all of the distinguishing features that made her practices so risky and potentially criminal.

Which is just what she hopes to achieve by her tweet. She means to suggest that she and Comey are guilty of the same sin. If he did nothing wrong, neither did she. That’s her message, never mind the classified material that was mishandled, or the other shipping-container-sized scandal baggage she brought to the campaign, or her “deplorables” shots at working-class voters, or her arrogant neglect of Rust Belt campaigning, or a degree of personal unlikability so enormous that it somehow made Donald Trump viable for the presidency. She’s guilty of what Comey’s guilty of — nothing at all. The system was rigged.

He really should have arrested her when he had the chance. Exit quotation from Dan Foster:

FBI Director Wray Praises Mueller “I Do Not Believe Special Counsel Mueller is on a Witch Hunt” (VIDEO)

Published

on

By

FBI Director Christopher Wray testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee Monday on the IG report’s findings of the Clinton email investigation.

Christopher Wray told Senator Leahy (D-VT) that Robert Mueller’s investigation is ‘not a witch hunt.’

FBI Director Wray once again proves he serves the Deep State swamp rather than the interests of the American people.

FBI Director Christopher Wray held a press conference last Thursday afternoon from the FBI headquarters in DC following the release of the IG report was released.

Wray defended the swamp; he said the IG report “did not find any evidence of political bias or improper considerations actually impacting the investigation under review.”

On Monday, the FBI Director praised Mueller and said the dirty cop is not on a witch hunt.

Truly disgusting.

VIDEO:

We shouldn’t be surprised as Wray defended the corrupt officials in the FBI brass last week in a disgraceful press conference.

Americans are disgusted after reading more anti-Trump text messages from FBI agents.

What a disgrace.
The top officials at the FBI and DOJ hated Donald Trump and his supporters.

The Deep State hacks called Trump supporters: F***ing Idiots, Sad, Pathetic, Retarded.

Chris Wray told reporters there was “no evidence of political bias.”
This is the same FBI that had spies inside the Trump campaign and continued to spy on President-elect Trump after his election and inauguration.
And the FBI spy infiltrating the Trump campaign openly advocated for Hillary Clinton during the election.

According to Wray, there’s no political bias and Mueller is not on a witch hunt despite KGB tactics of breaking down doors and raiding anyone connected to the president without even naming the crime.

Wray needs to go.

Study: The states with the most psychopaths seem to be blue

Published

on

By

Why on Earth would we talk about a Social Science Research Center study like this? The real question is… how could we not?

Reported at QZ, this new study by Southern Methodist University Professor Ryan Murphy correlated a bunch of data which I can’t make heads or tails of and figured out how psychopathic the residents of every state are. He was looking at the “levels of big five personality traits” (extroversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, neuroticism, and openness to experience) in each state. These apparently correlate with other traits which identify psychopathic tendencies. To put it mildly, the news was not good for the blue states.

Sometimes, it can feel like there are psychopaths everywhere. If you live in the United States, it’s now possible to move to less psychopathic environs, thanks to new research ranking 48 contiguous states by psychopathy.

Connecticut wins the dubious award of most psychopathic state in the US, followed by California in second, and New Jersey third. New York and Wyoming tie for joint fourth place, followed by Maine. The least psychopathic state is West Virginia, followed by Vermont, Tennessee, North Carolina, and New Mexico…

Earlier research shows that psychopathy is composed of disinhibition, boldness, and meanness, and a forthcoming paper shows that these characteristics can be translated into the big five traits.

I’m still not sure how things like “meanness” and disinhibition translate over to characteristics typical of psychopaths, but then, I only lasted for a few classes in pre-med. It’s still interesting to note that while the five states with the highest psychopath rating were almost entirely blue states in the northeast (plus California), the least psychopathic ones were in red (or at least reddish purple) areas. Who would have guessed that West Virginia would be the best location, particularly if you’ve ever watched the movies based in that region?

Oh, there was one more kicker to the study results. You might have been wondering where the District of Columbia landed. The answer is that it’s not on the list because it rang up a psychopath rating that was off the charts but was disqualified due to mitigating circumstances. (Emphasis added)

Murphy also included the District of Columbia in his research, and found it had a psychopathy level far higher than any other state. But this finding is an outlier, as Murphy notes, as it’s an entirely urban area and cannot be fairly compared with larger, more geographically diverse, US states. That said, as Murphy notes, “The presence of psychopaths in District of Columbia is consistent with the conjecture found in Murphy (2016) that psychopaths are likely to be effective in the political sphere.”

So if you’re looking for the highest concentration of psychopaths in the country, head to Washington, D.C. Apparently they have more of them than you can shake a stick at and the majority are working “in the political sphere.”

C’mon, man. You’re not going to sit there and tell me you’re surprised.

BREAKING: IG Horowitz Confirms Comey Under Investigation For Handling of Classified Memos

Published

on

By

Inspector General Horowitz confirmed Monday during a Congressional hearing Comey is under investigation for his handling of classified information.

Fired FBI Director James Comey penned 7 memos stemming from 9 conversations with President Trump.

At least 4 of 7 of the memos contained classified information.

Comey gave contents of his memos to his ‘friend’ Daniel Richman to leak to the New York Times in order to prompt a Special Counsel.

On Monday, Inspector General Horowitz was asked by Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley ‘if the IG is investigating Comey’s handling of his memos about Trump.’

Horowitz replied in the affirmative.

“Yes, we’re investigating it and will produce a report on it.”
