The Other Power Struggle In Washington DC Happening Right Now

Besides the presidential campaigns going full throttle right now, after James Comey wrote a letter to Congress informing them of more of Hillary's Emails being found on either Carlos Danger or his soon to be ex wife and Hillary Clinton's assistant Huma's electronic device, another major player entered the ring for a second time.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

She of the highly inappropriate private meeting on an airplane with an oh so conveniently present former president and husband of Hillary, Bill Clinton.

The DOJ is saying that Comey violated policy by writing that letter to Congress informing them of the newly discovered Emails.

They have also not given the FBI a warrant to search them yet.

So in one corner we have Director Comey and members of Congress who are VERY interested in seeing if anything new is in those Emails and in the other corner we have Attorney General Lynch, The Clinton cabal and the power of the DOJ slamming on the brakes.

This is going to get very interesting, very quickly.

Pass the popcorn.

Lynch, Justice opposed Comey's Clinton email letter; Democrats in Senate demand answers

Four Democrats in the Senate on Saturday sent a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey requesting a range of disclosures in the wake of Comey's Friday announcement about newly discovered emails possibly pertaining to Hillary Clinton's use of a private server.

The letter asks for "more detailed information about the investigative steps being taken, the number of emails involved, and what is being done to determine how many of the emails are duplicative of those already reviewed."

Sen. Patrick Leahy, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Sen. Benjamin Cardin and Sen. Thomas Carper signed the letter and gave Comey and Lynch a deadline of Monday to respond.

Calling Comey's letter from Friday "troubling," and noting that they are aware of the warning given by the Justice Department to the FBI regarding Comey's actions on Friday, the senators also write that his letter to Congressional Republicans breaks with the longstanding tradition of the FBI and Department of Justice proceeding cautiously in the days leading up to an election.

"Director Comey's letter has been misunderstood. It is already being used for political purposes, creating a misleading impression regarding the FBI's intent and actions," the senators wrote, calling on federal officials to dispel any misleading impressions and clarify what significance any of the new emails have to the previous investigation of Sec. Clinton.

The Justice Department advised Comey against telling Congress about newly discovered emails possibly "pertinent” to the agency’s investigation into Clinton’s server, with GOP rival Donald Trump on Saturday suggesting a cover-up.


  1. The DOJ does not issue search warrants. Federal judges do so. It should be easy enough to get a warrant if they do not already have one, judge shopping is a common occurrence among agents seeking to obtain a search warrant.

  2. White House ethics lawyer under George W. Bush, Richard Painter, filed a Hatch Act Violation complaint against Director Comey.

    "But an official doesn’t need to have a specific intent — or desire — to influence an election to be in violation of the Hatch Act or government ethics rules. The rules are violated if it is obvious that the official’s actions could influence the election, there is no other good reason for taking those actions, and the official is acting under pressure from persons who obviously do want to influence the election."

    Also, "This is no trivial matter. We cannot allow F.B.I. or Justice Department officials to unnecessarily publicize pending investigations concerning candidates of either party while an election is underway. That is an abuse of power. Allowing such a precedent to stand will invite more, and even worse, abuses of power in the future."

    That's a lot of abuse of power just so he can vaguely suggest something nefarious about emails that weren't to or from Secretary Clinton, and didn't pass through her server.

    Is she also responsible for all the other emails on the internet? Just curious.

    1. Did it ever occur to you that Hillary Clintons abuse of power by setting up a personal Email server in her fucking bathroom to avoid using the official government Email system might be the cause of this whole fiasco or is that something else you can find an excuse for?

    3. Screwed that up. Here it is again. How come I never heard outrage over these?

  3. Ol' Nangleator lays a new Liberal turd in your punch bowl bout everyday. I'm bout tired of his foolish comments.


    1. He must enjoy the abuse is all I can say.
      His arguments are weak milk, his excuses for inexcusable behavior are so easy to blow holes in that they may as well be printed on wet toilet paper and the best part is that he is trying hard.

      I agree, it's time to quit feeding the Troll.
      Since he has obviously enabled the Email alert for responses to comments he is going to see this.

      Nanny, you are now officially on the ignore list. There will be no more Kibbles.

  4. What the fuck is a nangleator??

    Mike Rowe was on faux news today, talking about the "election".

    His money quote,

    "scratching off a square is not work, understanding why you believe what you do, that's work".

  5. Lady Justice will be raped and buried long before Hillary gets tried!

    how rusty the system is!
