Fox Business host Lou Dobbs recently criticized Senate Judiciary Chair Lindsey Graham, for not doing enough to initiate investigations the president and his allies have long called for. (According to Mediaite)
“LINDSEY GRAHAM SAYING THAT HE JUST CAN’T GO ALONG WITH SENATOR RAND PAUL IN SEEKING TO REFORM FISA AND HE WANTS A LITTLE TIME TO BE DELIBERATIVE. AT WHAT POINT IS THERE GOING TO BE AN ACCOUNTABILITY QUOTIENT IN THIS TOWN THAT SMACKS OF ANYTHING LIKE REAL JOURNALISM?” : L. Dobbs
Lou Dobbs accurately reflects our views. However, it is not just Lindsey Graham or lousy journalism who seems to be on a “different page” than President Trump’s voters and supporters of his administration.
The highly touted Attorney General William “get to the bottom of the Obama reign of disgrace” Barr appears to be in the same camp as Graham. Oh…and John Durham?…anybody remember him?
And, of course there’s Christopher Wray (FBI?) and Geena Haspell (CIA)…whose pace is so slow, they seem to be going backward in any effort to impose ‘accountability’ or to reform their corrupted organizations. But, then, we never expected a whole lot from those two…the Democrats were too anxious to confirm them.
Here, it might be appropriate to mention Jeffrey Rosen. “Who?”, you might ask. Way back in May of last year, he was confirmed (along Party lines of course) to replace ROD ROSENSTEIN!
Bet you forgot him. I think he was named to handle day-to-day affairs of DOJ so that Barr could continue to “get to the bottom of” the previous administration’s attempt to overthrow the then-incoming Trump presidency.
But then Barr named Durham to help him with that, and Durham has apparently joined “John Huber” and, maybe O J Simpson, in the hunt for ‘perpetrators’.
(If we do hear from them (not OJ) before the November election, it will be by some carefully ‘sanitized’ report like the DOJ Inspector General’s set of non-conclusions, gentle suggestions on people to indict, and a statement that says in so many words…”wasn’t no political bias goin’ on here”.)
At any rate, if things ‘go south’ for the American people in November, in large part due to the lack of will and competency on the part of those named above, and the DC Establishment, we’ll get either a communist, a senile hack, or a former First Lady (and children’s nutrition expert) in the White House… and you can kiss ‘accountability’ and the “Republic for which…”oh, you know, the “thing”, as a ‘great statesman’ once said…”goodbye”! dlh
