JOHN BRUMMETT: The story so far

By John Brummett

This article was published April 15, 2018 at 4:30 a.m.

Rod Rosenstein, deputy attorney general at this writing but maybe not by your reading, is the man whom the preposterous Russian-endorsed second-place president calls a central villain in a conspiracy by "Democrat loyalists" to engage in a witch-hunt against him.

JB starts with a few lies. JB Russia did not endorse Trump. He came in first, won the presidency. Trump never called Rosenstein a central villain in a conspiracy. JB says Trump called Rosenstein a Democratic conspirator where is your proof?
Bill Clinton was impeach for perjury in the Jones case and one accusing Clinton of abuse of power. Bill Clinton was disbarred from practicing law in Arkansas and was also disbarred from practicing law in front of the Supreme Court over the Lewinsky incident and fined $25,000. And paid Paula Jones $850,000 for sexual harassment.
What happen to Trump Russia collusion? WE had 24/7 on CNN and MSNBC and Media networks Russian Collusion for a year. Not one ounce of proof of any Trump Russia collusion has come forward. Russia, Russia, Russia all they could talk about. The only collusion was Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee who helped fund the research behind the Russian dossier, colluding with russian agents and a retired British spy.
Why Rosenstein fired Comey "I agree with the nearly unanimous opinions of former Department officials. The way the Director handled the conclusion of the email investigation was wrong. As a result, the FBI is unlikely to regain public and congressional trust until it has a Director who understands the gravity of the mistakes and pledges never to repeat them. Having refused to admit his errors, the Director cannot be expected to implement the necessary corrective actions."
And remember there was a list of democrats wanting Comey fired, old Harry Reid was the top one, the leader of the Senate Democrats.
Trump is not going to fire Rosenstein or Mueller. But JB, democrats and some media wants him to fire them.

Mr. Brummett's statements of fact are true, and his statements of opinion are supported by reason applied to facts, so stumpers for Trump are sure to hate this commentary. That is okay. No drowning man loves an anchor, but those aboard a seaworthy ship consider it a great thing.

And I could not care less who Trump does or does not fire. He is already drowning with plenty of people tossing him another anchor.

Boltar: I don's hate his commentary. He can say anything he wants too. I can agree or disagree.

It is presumptuous to assume my comments are all about or to you, Rightside. You and I are just individual commenters, so get over yourself.

rightside, like it has been said by many others, you are entitled to your own opinion, but not your set of facts. Your first sentence is the starting place of you trying to use your own set of facts, and that won't pass the test. Better luck next time! Be sure when you accuse you have the facts!

This article has ZERO credibility when Brummett blames Hillary's whopping defeat on Comey. Hillary lost because she was a terrible candidate and ignored Wisconsin.
.
Regardless it's time President Trump fired Mueller, Sessions, and Rosenstein. The Mueller investigation is an effort by political elites, self-proclaimed democrats and republicans alike, to overturn the results of the 2016 election and disenfranchise 60 million or so honest, decent, good Americans. The raid on Cohen's office and associated fishing expedition after striking out on the Trump/Russia collusion angle is evidence of the bloodless coup attempt. It's time to stop it in its tracks before the attempted coup is no longer bloodless.
.
Is it coincidence political elites are wanting to ban guns at the same time the coup is underway? Maybe. And maybe not. #comeatusbro

Rightside,

All of Brummett's facts are in Trump's own tweets. Here is one of the:

"Much of the bad blood with Russia is caused by the Fake & Corrupt Russia Investigation, headed up by the all Democrat loyalists, or people that worked for Obama. Mueller is most conflicted of all (except Rosenstein who signed FISA & Comey letter). No Collusion, so they go crazy!"

There has been much evidence of Trump/Russian collusion. For one, many of the Trump campaign people met with Russians and received funds from them. Russia placed ads on Trump's behalf. Russia tried to hack into voting systems on Trump's behalf. Trump associate Roger Stone seemed to know about the Wikileaks dump of Hillary's emails before it happened.

JB's very first sentence................"second place president"

Donald Trump.....304
Hillary Clinton.....227

When you mention " second place" you must be referring to Hillary but Hillary is not ( and never will be) president.

Quite evident her and you can't accept those FACTS.

PM, Hillary received tens of millions from Russia. Where's your indignation over that?
