Trump Makes An Idiotic Tweet

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump






The disastrous IG Report on James Comey shows, in the strongest of terms, how unfairly I, and tens of millions of great people who support me, were treated. Our rights and liberties were illegally stripped away by this dishonest fool. We should be given our stolen time back?




=========================================================================


What rights and liberties were this jackass and his supporters "stripped" of ?


The rest of us were stripped of our right to not have a pathological liar representing the U.S.

While the IG report this week chided Comey for handing off contemporaneous notes about his interactions with the president to a friend so that they could be provided to the press, the Justice Department said it would not pursue criminal charges against the former FBI director.

In reaction to Trump's tweet suggesting he be given extra time on his current term, critics said the idea was ludicrous.

"Trump is talking about illegally extending his presidency again through a coup of his own making,"  tweeted  John Aravosis, liberal activist and editor of  AmericaBlog . "It's time Republicans started standing up for the country rather than the man."

It's not the first time Trump has talked about staying beyond his allowable limit or suggesting he would not cede the office.

In June, as  Common Dreams   reported  at the time,  Trump pinned a tweet to his timeline showing an online meme that depicted him holding power indefinitely. While critics then acknowledged that the behavior appears to be a form of trolling by the president, it still is a frightening suggestion that would be foolish not to take seriously or with at least some level of concern.

In response to Trump's comments on Friday, many took the idea of "stolen time" and ran with it as they suggested that it was Trump's presidency—predicated on racism, misogyny, xenophobia, environmental rollbacks, corporate giveaways, cruelty to children, fealty to wealthy elites, and an overall assault on decency and the common good—that had stolen so much time and progress from the country and the world.

"We should absolutely be given back our stolen time!"  said one  Twitter user, exemplary of many others. "And the whole Trump fiasco should be stricken from history. Everything Trump has done should be reversed as though it never happened."

If Trump could do it, so can any other President ameliorate, redress or rectify anything Trump did. Something that Trump seems to think applies only to "The Chosen One".

Trump touches upon a fundamental truth.  Justice has been applied with a double standard.  If Comey, or McCabe,  or Hillary Clinton had been treated like Flynn and Papadapolous were by the FBI, they'd have have been in jail. When a private citizen gives a wrong date of a meeting to Mueller, he  goes to jail.  When the actual head of the FBI breaks rules and gives sensitive information to be leaked to the media, he's get a slap on the wrist. 

Justice is only justice when applied equally. Honest observers have been pointing out that the FBI gave out immunity agreement like candy (even to those who lied to investigators) during the Clinton email investigation without requiring anything in return, but indicted anyone for any technical crime they could allege with a straight fact when investigating Trump.

Comey has destroyed the reputation of the FBI for being a non partisan agency. Hard to come back from that. The IG reports paint a damning portrait of the FBI's politicization. History will not be kind.  Assuming ,of course, progressives don't take over and outlaw history as offensive, which wouldn't surprise me.

The IG JUST reported that Comey did NOT lie. McCabe is still under litigation. There is NO evidence that Hillary Clinton lied either. 

Justice is only justice when applied equally.

Oh bullshit. Petraeus divulged Top Secret Sensitive Compartmented Information to his main squeeze and lied to Federal investigators. He got probation and receives his military pension ranked as a General.

If Petraeus was a journalist, they would have nailed him to the wall...

Comey has destroyed the reputation of the FBI for being a non partisan agency.

I'm pretty sure that Trump telling Comey that he needed and expected loyalty did that...

Keep defending Captain Queeg,  John.

He was, by  far, the worst FBI director since Hoover.  He makes the spectacular botching of the Olympic Bombing and Anthrax case look like models of police work by comparison.

Hands down the worst.

Who was FBI Director when Russia intelligence warned us about the Tsarnev brothers?  Oh, yeah, James Comey.  

The following letter, dated April 7, 2014, was sent to inspectors general representing the U.S. Department of Justice, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Intelligence Community, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Dear Inspectors General,

The FBI appreciates your thorough review of the handling and sharing of information prior to the April 15, 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. Of course, we continue to remember all who were harmed in those terrible events. But whenever a tragedy occurs, we owe it to the victims and the American people to look back and see what lessons we can learn. It’s not just a useful exercise; it’s an essential one.

Here, your review confirmed that when Russian authorities provided limited information to the FBI about Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his mother in 2011, the FBI acted appropriately. The FBI’s Boston field office took responsible investigative steps and, as you recognized, generally shared information and followed procedures appropriately. We also concur with your recommendations. In fact, we have already taken steps to ensure that all threat information is proactively and uniformly shared with the state and local partners whose support is so critical to the success of our Joint Terrorism Task Forces.

FBI agents and analysts throughout the world, together with our law enforcement and intelligence partners, work day in and day out to protect the homeland, using all available tools consistent with our Constitution, laws and policies. They have to make critical judgments in real time, almost always with imperfect information, and often in dangerous circumstances. I am proud of the work that the Boston field office did in this case, before the bombings as well as after them, and I am proud of all the people of the FBI who have made the safety of the American people their life’s mission.

Sincerely,

James B. Comey
Director

"generally" translates to totally fucked up and blew it costing Americans their lives and limbs..... literally.
