“A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.”
~ Edward R. Murrow ~
I wouldn’t say that all of us in the nation are sheep, but there is certainly a large segment of the population that is willing to make the wolves in government have their way.
Everyone is wondering when the republican lawmakers will speak out against trump. (Don’t hold your collective breaths.)
I know it’s hard to keep up, but once again today there was more bombshell news about the actions of this president.
“The New York Times is reporting that fired FBI Director James Comey claimed in a memo that President Donald Trump directly told him to close an investigation into Trump’s former National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn.
‘I hope you can let this go,” Comey said Trump told him. The President reportedly added, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”’ [Source]
Hmmm, let’s see now.
~The crime of obstruction of justice, in United States jurisdictions, refers to the crime of obstructing prosecutors or other (usually government) officials. Common law jurisdictions other than the United States tend to use the wider offense of perverting the course of justice.~
So there you have it. If what James Comey is alleging is true, our president might have some explaining to do.
We have yet to see a tweet from the president about these latest stunning revelations. But stay tuned, it’s early.
