    The only thing Comey did wrong, objectively, is going public with an FBI investigation, when normally they are very private. Also, he went public with the Clinton investigation during the election, but didn't go public with the Trump investigation that started up in the Summer. I'm not sure Clinton would have kept Comey, or just slapped him on the wrist.

    Bobby was a highly regarded lawyer in his own right. Their dad had already been an ambassador.

    Let's compare to Jared and Ivanka.

    Of note, as things stand, Hillary would not have been potentially under investigation by Comey had she fired him.

    It's not so much that we all love Comey. It's that the reasoning behind the decision combined with the timing smells more like bullshit than the actual pile of shit left over here by a bull.

    Its in the business deals for BOTH sides though. The global economy they all demand basically requires it. Podesta was on the board of an energy company that got big investment cash from a state run Russian company.


    This whole thing is going to turn out with nothing happening. Its the Dem version of the Benghazi attack investigations.

    I'm not aware of a lot of investigations where the people doing the investigation make evidence public in the middle of said investigation.

    Also, it's not so much that they've done business, it's that so far there appears to be evidence that they are *continuing* to do business, and also had rewards promised in exchange for acts performed by the president and his associates.

    Now, you may very well be right. This might be like Benghazi and there literally isn't anything there. But don't you think maybe they should at least get one investigation, rather then the multiple ones that Benghazi got?

    Finally, do you really buy that the firing was related to the Clinton investigation? Fired by a guy who literally led chants of "Lock Her Up?" C'mon.

    The US is considering banning all electronics larger than cell phones in the cabin on flights originating from Europe. Say good bye to major revenue there.
