Welcome to RichTAkes! on Obstructing Justice.
Since Hillary lost the election and Trump won, Democrats everywhere have been determined to undermine his Presidency at every turn. So far, they’ve been very successful by pressuring Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from anything related to Russia, and doing the same to Nunez in the House. Neither was justified, I don’t recall Holder or Lynch recusing themselves over issues where there were obvious conflicts of interest. Holder was held in contempt of the House over Fast and Furious testimony, and Lynch met with Slick Willy Clinton in a plane which no one was supposed to know about on a Saturday last summer, and on the following Monday, FBI Director Comey held a presser in which he laid out a case for prosecution of Hillary over her illegal email server, and then said that no prosecutor would proceed.
That claim was a complete hoax from Day One.
Trump’s firing of James Comey was completely justified, even if he totally screwed up the messaging. FBI Directors do not hold Press Conferences about recommending a prosecution or not to the DOJ, and in all fairness, AG Loretta Lynch put Comey in that position by publicly stating that she would defer to his recommendation, (after meeting with Willy on the tarmac) and we all knew that the fix was in. Comey’s ridiculous whiney testimony to the committee the week before his dismissal was reason enough. “What should I do? Reveal, or conceal” Really Comey? It’s not fair is it? I bet you “know your rights” too, don’t cha? I hear crap like that from my kids, I certainly don’t need to hear it from the FBI Director. You’re Fired!
The Russian collusion story line doesn’t seem to be getting much traction, so now the latest Democrat talking point says “Obstruction of Justice” Really? There was an FBI counter-intelligence investigation into the Russian collusion, coordination, or whatever going on at the FBI when Comey was dismissed, and that investigation was not impeded at all. A counter-intelligence investigation is not the same as a criminal investigation. Comey was not “leading” that investigation anymore than he was leading any of the other thousand or more current ongoing FBI investigations at any given time. The counter-intelligence investigation would ask if the Russians “hacked” the election, what did they do, how did they do it, what effects did it have, and how can we take measures to impede those efforts in the future. The truth is, the Russians did not “hack” the election by any reasonable standard.
We now have a new Deputy Attorney General, and he took about three days in office to appoint a “Special Counsel” to investigate all of this nonsense, The problem is, a Special Counsel has all of the same powers as an Independent Prosecutor, even if there is no evidence of any underlying crime. So far there is not any evidence of coordination or collusion, let alone a crime having been committed.
This will take years to complete, and months to even start up at a cost of millions of dollars just for the openers. All because Hillary wanted to blame the Russians for her loss in November.
They only admitted that they were violating the law after the election.
He had no evidence of any crime.
A supporter of the American Communist Party at the height of the Cold War, Brennan brought into the CIA a raft of subversives and gave them plum positions from which to gather and leak political espionage on Trump.

It simply can not be Hillary’s fault. She still has not owned up to her loss.
