I doubt it. So, here it is again:
Not to be outdone, Nancy Pelosi chimed in as well:
“Maybe he’s not in the right job,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told CNN’s Jamie Gangel. “I think that we have to just get through this election and just see what the casualties are along the way.”
Even Obama took a shot at Comey:
“Setting aside the particulars of this case, I know that [Hillary Clinton] is somebody who has always looked out for the interests of America and the American people first, and I do think that there is a norm that when there are investigations, we don’t operate on innuendo, we don’t operate on incomplete information, we don’t operate on leaks, we operate based on concrete decisions that are made,” Obama told NowThis on Wednesday.
OK, so Schumer stated outright he had no faith in Comey. Pelosi suggested that after the election, he might be a casualty. Does it get any clearer than that? Apparently not.
Fast forward to last night:
So even though Schumer had no trust or faith in Comey at all, it was the TIMING of it that makes it bad. Right? At least Pelosi has enough sense to keep her mouth shut for the time being. I doubt that lasts through the day tho.
So, why the timing? This, is why:
Apparently Schumer didn’t bother to read it. I’m sure he got it, just doubt he cared enough to read it. Now, to put this in perspective, Rosenstein is effectively Comey’s supervisor. Rosenstein was nominated and passed the Senate with a 94-6 vote. That is called “bi-partisan” support. Chuck Schumer voted to confirm Rod Rosenstein. So, as of April 25, 2017, that’s this year, about three weeks ago, Chuck Schumer very publicly supported Rod Rosenstein, and very publicly did not support James Comey. Rosenstein effectively fires Comey, Schumer IMMEDIATELY cries foul and claims coverups and the like. What’s the difference between wanting to fire Comey in November and Comey getting fired in May? The “timing” as Schumer calls it? Back to a little blurb in the first article I cited:
Schumer ― who is on track to serve as Senate minority leader for the next Congress, or perhaps majority leader based on Senate projections for next week’s elections ― is the latest in Democratic leadership to criticize Comey.
When Schumer wanted Comey fired, he fully expected to be the person making the call. Now that he’s not, he’s going to whine about it and spin it anyway he can. I expect Pelosi to expect everyone forgets all the criticism she’s fired at Comey and chime in on the Watergate angle as well before the day is over.
Anyone who’s followed Comey to any degree at all knows this firing had to happen. The man was violating FBI code all over the place, pandering to whoever he was answering to at any given moment. The way he handled Clinton’s email investigation was criminal. I should be thankful he gutted her campaign, but I’m not. He needs to be prosecuted for ethics violations, as well as Susan Rice.
And the ultimate irony of this is the fact that Schumer claims the firing is a cover-up for the Russian conspiracy theory that the man he’s protesting being fired just finished claiming didn’t exist. Repeat that three times real fast. And yeah, that feature image is intentional. It’s OK when Schumer meets with Russians, not OK when Republicans even speak to them.
