If the recent, surprisingly successful Trumpcare vote in the House is any indication, Republicans and their conservative media boosters appear to be willing to follow their pied piper Donald Trump all the way to whatever uncharted, dark place he is leading them to.
Thankfully, there are a few on the right side of the aisle who have enough common sense to see through Trump’s charade and speak out against it. A Fox News pundit just spelled out on air why Trump’s firing of James Comey was not based on Comey’s dealings with Hillary Clinton, as the White House has asserted.
Stated Charles Krauthammer on Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier, “It’s so amazing that I think we are only at the very beginning of the story. Here is what is so odd about it. This is about, according to the letter by the Deputy Attorney General, this is about something that occurred on July 5th. This, so we start out with something that is highly implausible. If that was so offensive to the Trump administration, which you would have done, in the transition, you would have spoken with Comey and said we are going to let you go. That’s when a president could very easily make a decision to have a change. That’s not unprecedented. But to fire him summarily with no warning in the middle of May because of something that happened in July is almost inexplicable.”
Charles continued, “Second, the reason ostensibly is, as you read in that letter, for doing something that you are not supposed to do, to usurp the Attorney General. But second, to release all the information which was damaging to Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump’s opponent. Do we really believe Donald Trump come after all these months, decided suddenly he had to fire this guy because he damaged Hillary in back in July? Another implausible conjecture. We are left to believe that it might have something to do with the egregious mistake that Comey made in the testimony this week.” Are you glad that this conservative was willing to set the record straight for Fox News viewers?
