Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch shopped for a soft interview to preemptively rebut former FBI Director James Comey's upcoming book. When "Deep State" swamp rats fight, a lot is confirmed about what we know about corruption at the political top of the FBI and Department of Justice.
On Monday, Lynch found the softest of softball pitchers, Lester Holt of PMS-NBC lineage. Astoundingly, he did not ask on his evening news segment why she asked Comey to call the Clinton investigation "a matter" instead of an investigation. It was like having an interview with Bill Cosby and not broadcasting questions on the rape allegations.
The interview in Lynch's apartment was so chummy that she and Holt were just about to pull out their high school yearbooks, do each other's hair and talk about boys.
Lynch thought Hillary would be elected and she could retire to some job teaching one college class for $350,000 a year while simultaneously complaining about the cost of higher education. Or she could just be revered by the left, showing up at baseball games and ceremoniously throwing out the Second Amendment. Trump has upset the D.C. applecart.
Once Special Counsel Robert Mueller finishes hiring Clinton Foundation cronies and Democratic donor staff attorneys to investigate Trump on "collusion," he might have to go look at the real crimes. Yes, the media and the "swamp" set off all of these false narratives to destroy the president. But as I have said from the beginning in my columns, it might disappoint them just which president they end up getting.
It comes down to two things. Why didn't Lynch indict Hillary Clinton's campaign for using the fake Russian dossier to obtain a FISA court warrant to investigate the Trump campaign? And why did Lynch secretly meet with Bill Clinton when both their jets were on the tarmac in Phoenix?
Maybe they really did have a private conversation for almost an hour "about their grandkids," because her husband showed up. We know 70-plus-year-old Clinton, with heart issues, loves playing golf in Phoenix in 107- degree temperatures; he "just happened" to be there.
The Clintons have skirted capture since their days in Arkansas. They are the Bonnie and Clyde of politics and, like those old criminal bank robbers, when you stick up so many banks in broad daylight for that long, folks start pulling for you.
Hillary also had U.S. state secrets on her private server. She destroyed 33,000 emails, Bleach-bit her emails, and smashed cell phones. No feds knocked down her doors like they did Michael Cohen's for paying a porn star not to talk. To sum up, take top secret government emails and destroy evidence under subpoena — no problem. Enter into a binding legal contract with a porn star to be quiet, and the FBI Gestapo ignores attorney-client privilege and kicks down your door.
The real secret here that no one will talk about is that a Washington, D.C., grand jury, in a city that voted 95 percent for Hillary Clinton, will indict any and all Republicans whom ambitious prosecutors bring before them. A member of that grand jury said, "The grand jury room looks like a Bernie Sanders rally," and went on to say that Trump could never get a fair shake.
Even the left has to realize and fear that with all the layered and vague laws in this country, anyone's life can be ruined at any time with an indictment. It was reported that just to get a call from the feds in an investigation costs you $50k in attorney's fees. It cost Michael Flynn his house, so he was forced to cop a procedural plea.
The left's goal is right out of Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals": disrupt and resist. They might even force Jefferson Beauregard Sessions out of office by calling him a Confederate statue and removing him in the dark of night. Or maybe Trump will remove him anyway, since Sessions' Deputy AG, Rod Rosenstein, OK'd the raid on his personal attorney, Michael Cohen. Trump has fired so many that being in his cabinet is like being a wife of King Henry VIII.
But maybe all this firing is good; we either elected as president the boss of "The Apprentice" or we did not.
