The president should have done more to counter Russia's election meddling, top Dem says

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top-ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday the president should have done more to counter Russia's meddling in the U.S. election.

"I think the administration needed to call out Russia earlier, needed to act to deter and punish Russia earlier, and that was a very serious mistake," Schiff, of California, said in a televised interview with CNN.

He was of course referring to president Obama who was still in charge when the possible Russian hacking came to light. Democrat Rep. Schiff stopped short of calling Obama's reticence collusion or even treason, but many believe Obama ignored Russian threats because he was convinced, like many other Democrats, by the fake media polls that showed Hillary winning, and he didn't want to make waves.

Comey's Latest Statement Is An Indictment Of Comey, Not Trump

Comey going postal, metaphorically. ..

If anything, Comey's latest statement only highlights why Trump was justified in firing Comey in the first place. Comey, according to his own testimony, repeatedly told Trump that the president was not being investigated by the FBI. Not only that, Comey also told Congress that Trump was not being personally investigated. How on earth is it inappropriate, in light of those facts, for the president to ask for those facts to be made public by the very individual asserting them? Trump's exasperation looks far more justifiable given the behavior to which Comey admits in his own testimony, largely because Comey's tortured explanation for refusing to publicly explain those facts, even after disclosing them to Congress, holds so little water.
