House Dem Calls South Carolina Debate a Disgrace

by Daveda Gruber:

On Wednesday, Debbie Dingell, who is the Democratic Representative of Michigan, was not happy with the performance of her fellow Democrats, who are running for the front position in the race for the presidential candidate.

Dingell, who is the wife of the late Representative John Dingell, called the White House hopefuls on stage at the debate in South Carolina a “disgrace.”

Speaking of the spectacle on Tuesday night Dingell said, “It was a disgrace. It was a circular firing squad. They’re forgetting about what we need to be focused on.”

She went on to say, “They’re contributing to the fear and hatred in this country. I’m sure Russia and China were delighted at their performance.”

Some critics blamed CBS News moderators for not keeping the seven candidates in order but it actually was the candidates who were out of control but Dingell blamed the candidates.

Dingell added, “It was disgusting. They [talked over] each other. They fought each other. They came with lines to destroy each other.”

It really was chaotic on the stage. Senator Bernie Sanders I-Vt., who is a self proclaimed Socialist was defiantly under attack. The reason being that Sanders has emerged as the frontrunner in the primary race.

The two former mayors, Mike Bloomberg and Pete Buttigieg, disputed that with Sanders as the nominee, Democrats who were on the ballot could lose to Republicans.

Remember that people do vote “Down the Line” and Dingell could have a point there.

Still, Dingell said that she was “tired of people stirring that pot.”

Dingell retorted “They are all strong candidates but if they keep tearing each other apart, they are helping each other make sure none of them are strong at the top of the ticket.”

Dingell has deep ties in the Democratic Party in swing-state Michigan but hasn’t endorsed a candidate yet.

I’d like to tell Dingell that it’s not worth it to endorse anyone of them but I’ll keep that to myself and with my readers.

Biden Thinks He’s Running for the US Senate

by Daveda Gruber:

Former Vice President Joe Biden forgot that he was running to be the Democratic nominee for the presidency and instead told people that he was a Democratic candidate for the “United States Senate.”

Biden, along with other 2020 candidates, attended the South Carolina Democrat Party’s First in the South Dinner. It has been reported that the former VP received a rather long ovation. As a matter of fact, the longest out of all the candidates.

Biden must have been in his glory because he feels that he’s got South Carolina locked up for his first win because he hasn’t won a primary in any state yet.

South Carolina has been Biden’s “firewall” after losing primaries in Iowa,  New Hampshire and Nevada.

But Biden can’t seem to remember things and it results in gaffes that continue to make people, who are voters, re-think their options.

When Biden was wrapping up at the dinner, he forgot which office that he was actually running for.

Biden was begging the voters for their support and said, “You’re the ones who sent Barack Obama the presidency. And I have a simple proposition here: I’m here to ask you for your help. Where I come from, you don’t go very far unless you ask. My name’s Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over. If you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden. Give me a look though, okay?”

Twitter gives a lot of information and here’s a tweet that shows Biden saying it:

Biden has been a senator in the past but he’s not running for a Senate position now. The man wants to be President of the United States and apparently forgot.

These past weeks have not been kind to the forgetful Biden. He had voters wondering about his claim to have been arrested in South Africa trying to free Nelson Mandela from prison. It was the first time for that story and there are no facts to substantiate it.

Biden also got confused about his late son Beau’s position and told CNN that the deceased son had served as U.S. attorney general. I fact, Beau Biden was attorney general for the state of Delaware from 2007-2015. He was never a U.S. Attorney General.

In a way, it would be kinder if Biden didn’t win the state of South Carolina. Maybe that would make him get out of this race and stop making a fool out of himself.

It is starting to look sad to see an old man struggling to remember key facts.

Bloomberg Claims NRA Helped Sanders

by Daveda Gruber:

As of Monday, the internal war in the Democratic party is in full bloom. The former mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg, started to attack Senator Bernie Sanders I-Vt., on gun control issues.

Just ahead of the South Carolina Democratic presidential debate Tuesday, Bloomberg posted an ad on his Twitter account that hits Sanders hard on his views for the use of guns.

The ad displays Sanders taking pro-gun stances in Congress and accuses Sanders of getting elected to Congress with the help of the NRA multiple times.

In the ad a 1990 letter by chief Wayne LaPierre of the NRA is cited. It shows that Sanders is a better choice for Vermont than former Republican Representative Peter Smith. An assault-weapons ban was backed by Smith.

The caption on the ad reads, “With that letter, and thousands of dollars in advertising, the NRA helped elect Bernie Sanders to Congress. Sanders voted with the NRA and opposed federal background checks by trying to block the Brady Bill 5 [sic] times.”

Here is the ad posted on Twitter by Bloomberg:

The timing of the ad comes at a critical time because Sanders won big in the Nevada caucuses. Sanders, on the other hand, had a very poor showing in the Nevada Democratic debate.

Bloomberg has donated large sums of money to anti-gun groups and even started his own anti-gun organization which is called “Everytown for Gun Safety” in response to the Sandy Hook mass shooting.

The organization then helped organize students who witnessed or were affected in another mass shooting in Parkland, Florida.

In 2012 Sanders had a bad rating of a D-minus from the NRA. Sanders, in reality, is no friend of the NRA or pro-gun lobbyists.

Sanders tweeted out this:

The Bloomberg ad shows Sanders’ quotes on Vermont being a “rural” state and that Sanders voted with the NRA in 2005 that ensured gun manufacturers would not be held responsible for crimes committed with their products.

The Supreme Court recently ruled that allowed Sandy Hook families to sue Remington Arms, which is the gun manufacturer, in state court.

We are seeing a pattern that shows that before a Democratic debate, issues are brought to light by the 2020 candidates and that those issues are brought into the attacks on each other on the stage on live TV in front of millions of viewers.

My presumption is that Bloomberg may attack Sanders on gun control issues during the upcoming debate in order to not come across as weak as he did in the debate in Nevada.

Will it work for Bloomberg? Time will tell.

Aren’t election years fun? This election has our freedom at stake and yet I find the players on the Democratic side to be somewhat pathetic but possibly fun to watch them destroy each other.

Do You Enjoy President Trump’s Humor?

by Daveda Gruber:

President Trump has been watching the Democrat 2020 candidates battle each other and a couple of things that have happened over this past week must have sparked his interest and even put a smile on his face.

Senator Bernie Sanders I-Vt., had a big win in Nevada and the close call in Iowa, where he came in second place, or maybe first place, because no one seems to want to disclose what really happened in Iowa, has the Democratic establishment in a frenzy.

What happens in Iowa, stays in Iowa? I thought that was Las Vegas, Nevada. I’d have to guess all these caucuses are starting to get confusing.

Sanders has his party claiming that he has some involvement with Russia and that President Vladimir Putin  would like to see Sanders win the nomination and the 2020 general election.

Sanders has denied any affiliation with Russians and in fact, made a comment of denial.

Sanders said, “I don’t care, frankly, who [Russian President Vladimir] Putin wants to be president. My message to Putin is clear: stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do.”

Personally, I don’t see Sanders getting the chance to be president so Putin must be having a good laugh about this.

Trump decided to give the opposing party some advice. After all, they seemed like they needed it.

It is quite obvious that President Trump has a pretty good sense of humor. His supporters enjoy his perky personality.

Trump tweeted this:

It appears that lawmakers on Capitol Hill and some people who are familiar with the subject have knowledge of alleged Russian attempts at influencing the 2020 election.

It has been alleged that during a House intelligence briefing, lawmakers learned that Russia wanted Trump to win.

Marc Short, chief of staff for Vice President Pence, sharply denied that intelligence pointed to Russia wanting Trump to win.

Reports are alleging that Representative Adam Schiff D-Calif., leaked this information.

Short said that news of Russian interference or preferences is the result of “selective” leaking from the House Intelligence Committee led by Schiff.

This information must have sparked something with Trump because he too accused Schiff of spreading disinformation.

Trump tweeted:

I don’t know about you but I find this to be comical and to me there’s nothing that strikes my funny bone more than a tweet from Trump when he’s in a humorous mood.

Just Call Her Elena

Reading history and gathering the thoughts and concepts of the learned isn’t a difficult thing, especially in the world of the Internet.

Socratic Theory is stated as follows.

Aristocracy, Timocracy, Oligarchy, Democracy and finally Tyranny.

Each one, starting with Aristocracy, leads to the next, eventually ending in Tyranny.

This model expressed in Plato’s Republic was well understood by the Founders of our great Nation and they went to tremendous lengths to create a system that, if protected, could stand the test of time.

From their work a country was built through Freedom and in the blink of an historical eye became the beacon for what other nations could become IF their citizens were willing to make the correct choices.

Freedom First.

Freedom Only.

Unfortunately the rest of the World has not followed in the footsteps of America although they’ve all been willing to benefit from the inventions Freedom allows to occur.

Electricity, the cotton gin, motor vehicles, and the Internet, just to name a few, have changed the lives of billions and they all started in the U. S. of A.

Instead of being proud of these accomplishments Freedom has been under attack by many in today’s America.

Too many belong to nothing (Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs) and have reached and continue to reach for anything that will fill the void in their lives.

Drugs, promiscuity, and oppression of others have been pushed to the front by politicians in the Sixties Generation and the following generations have been conditioned to accept these behaviors as appropriate.

They are not.

Marijuana usage by healthy humans makes all things worse.

Promiscuity chips away at the soul as loyalty, trust, and love are never found in this type of behavior, never mind the dissemination of infectious disease(s).

Oppression of others (bullying) has lead to the Democratic front runner sending out “goons” known as the Bernie Bros. to threaten people in their homes.

This of course is not new as Obama had Black Lives Matter, Progressives have Antifa, and the Mexicans have La Raza, never mind Islamic Sharia and MS-13.

Democratic politicians across America are emptying their jails and prisons, creating Sanctuary States and Cities, and calling for the removal of all walls or barriers on our Southern Border.

Who is voting for this?

Who is voting for a society that has no rules, no laws, no values?

Liberals.

It’s gotten so bad Amy Klobuchar is trying to change her name to Elena.

Apparently it will help her with her R’s.

It’s gotten so bad, Bernie Sanders, the leader of the Democratic Party, who honeymooned in Russia, thinks Che Guevara was a pretty good guy.

Che Guevara murdered blacks and homosexuals simply for being BLACK and HOMOSEXUAL but somehow Sanders is leading the Party of Diversity?

In the Progressive world of #METOO the man who thinks women fantasize that they are being raped simultaneously by three different men WHILE having sex with their husbands or boyfriends is getting the suburban soccer mom vote?

In the land of the Liberal a man who has never had a job in his life is going to be in charge of the most productive and powerful economy and military on the planet?

How long have you people been smoking pot?

Get off the Grateful Dead Tour and as Richard Pryor once said, “Have a Coke and a smile and shut the f#$k up!”

Sadly the number two Democratic candidate thinks blacks and browns should be thrown against walls and that farmers and ranchers are basically a bunch of morons who only do things like FEED US.

Of course this is to be expected as Michael Bloomberg believes his spot in Heaven has already been earned.

In other words he thinks he is God.

I know the Jerry Garcia crowd struggles with sobriety but Mini Mike is certainly not the Big Fella Upstairs.

Finally I decided to turn on the Democratic Debate on Wednesday night.

Stunningly idiotic.

The best part was the candidate that WASN’T there.

Andrew Yang, no longer on the stage with his “Math” pin, gave them all a sense of relief as it is pretty clear with their tax plans that none of them, including Yang, can do Math.

One called Denmark a great example for the United States.

Two others decided that telling black and brown women how much their lives suck was the way to go.

Buttigiggy decided to do a little comedy by stating the Democratic Party is a Party of Values.

Good one Moe, I mean Peter.

Good one.

Joe Biden said things that even Joe Biden didn’t understand but the best comment was from “Mike” Bloomberg.

He looked down the line and said “I believe I’m the only one here who has started a business” and the collection of miscreants and morons all stared silently at him as the crowd laughed.

If only he’d stop bragging about throwing people against walls and calling women fat broads and horse-faced lesbians he might have a chance to take Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s seat and give his fellow bigoted billionaire Bezos an opportunity to bring in Amazon.

Other than that “Mike” should use all the money he didn’t waste inflating his poll numbers to “save the planet” from destruction.

If he’s going to blow his cash with a lot of hot air it should definitely go towards global warming, err global cooling, err climate change.

Yeah that’s it.

Climate change.

Hey Mikey Likes It!

He’s the only one.

Biden Says Son Was US Attorney General

by Daveda Gruber:

Presidential candidate for 2020, former Vice President Joe Biden apparently forgot what his late son, Beau Biden did for a living.

On Thursday during a CNN town hall with a live audience Biden claimed that his son, Beau was the “Attorney General of the United States.”

The elder Biden was sadly mistaken because his son Beau was Attorney General of Delaware but not the United States.

Anderson Cooper of CNN was the moderator and asked Biden, “How will you restore the barriers between the Department of Justice and the Oval Office?”

Biden answered, “Never direct the Justice Department as to who they should or should not indict and under what circumstances they should or should not. That is an independent judgment to be made.”

Biden went on to stumble through his words and said, “My son  ̶̶  the one who  ̶̶  my deceased son, was the Attorney General of the United States and before that, he was a federal prosecutor in one of the largest offices in the country in Philadelphia.”

Biden then added, “And I’ll tell you what, he wouldn’t even talk to me about anything he was doing  ̶̶    his father  ̶̶   and he shouldn’t have, and I didn’t have any control over either one of those things.”

Here’s a tweet that shows Biden speaking:

The caucus have begun in Nevada and hopefully we’ll have the results in a timely manner. We’ll find out if people in that state support the gaffe machine known as Joe Biden or one of the other 2020 Democratic candidates.

Personally, I cannot imagine standing behind any of them.

Blagojevich Goes Home to Chicago

by Daveda Gruber:

President Trump has a fan in former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, who had his fourteen year sentence commuted after serving eight years in a Colorado prison which he entered in March of 2012.

Blagojevich, whose political affixation has always be Democratic, has expressed gratitude to Trump and commented by saying Trump saw a “wrong and corrected it.” He also called himself a “Trumpocrat.”

Trump had openly said that the punishment imposed was excessive. Trump went on to say, “so he’ll be able to go back home with his family. That was a tremendously powerful, ridiculous sentence in my opinion and in the opinion of many others.”

Although Trump claims that he didn’t really know Blagojevich who was a one-time contestant on Trump’s reality TV show “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2010, before his first corruption trial started.

When Trump “fired” Blagojevich as a contestant on Trump’s show, he praised him for how he was fighting his criminal case and told him, “You have a hell of a lot of guts.”

Blagojevich faced a trial in 2011 on 18 counts, which included trying to sell former President Obama’s old Senate seat. His first trial ended without the jury able to reach a verdict on all counts but they did convict him over one count which was lying to the FBI.

There is a famous wiretap recording in which Blagojevich said about former President Barack Obama’s Senate seat, “I’ve got this thing and it’s f̶  ̶  golden. And I’m just not giving it up for f̶  ̶  nothing.”

Blagojevich had resided in Chicago and was headed back home last night and bombarded by reporters at the airport where he arrived after taking a commercial flight home.

He walked through O’Hare airport shaking the hands of travelers who welcomed him home.

At O’Hare airport Blagojevich said to Chicago’s WGN-TV  “I didn’t do the things they said I did and they lied on me.”

He also signed a few autographs when he exited the airport doors and got into a white SUV  which drove him to his Ravenswood home where he told reporters, who were waiting for his arrival, that he was happy to be home with his wife and children.

Blagojevich revealed that there would be a Wednesday news conference.

During his time in prison Blagojevich said that he was drawn closer to God and claimed, that the hours of FBI recordings were the ramblings of a politician who liked to think out loud.

Blagojevich said, after being released, “There is divine intervention in all of this.”

He also said, that he learned how unfair the criminal justice system can be during his time in prison, especially for people of color.

The former governor declared, “I’m going to fight against the corrupt criminal justice system that all too often persecutes and prosecutes people who did nothing wrong, who over-sentences people, show no mercy, and who are in positions who have no accountability. They can do whatever they want. They can put you into prison for things that aren’t crimes.

On Tuesday evening Blagojevich said he’s made mistakes but never broke any laws.

He insisted, “I crossed no lines. And the things I talked about doing were legal and this was routine politics and the ones who did it are the ones who broke the laws and the ones who frankly should meet and face some accountability.”

Not everyone is happy about Trump’s decision to commute Blagojevich’s sentence but then not everyone is happy about whatever Trump does. The Democrats will always find fault with the president’s actions.

Trump believes he did the right thing and felt bad that Blagojevich couldn’t be close to his children, I’ll back my president in his decision to commute the sentence.

Corn Pop Say What!

Most weeks for me are filled to the brim.

I like it this way.

This seven day window was a bit more than normal and the time to write started to escape.

Sadly, the Liberals will not stop talking, so my job didn’t take as long as I thought it would, as they continued to provide ammunition for the gun.

DNC Chair Tom (La Raza) Perez stated “We cannot change the rules midstream” while changing the rules midstream.

If everything goes well in November, Perez will again be unemployed and begging MSNBS for Al Sharpton’s old job.

They can both give President Trump an NAACP award and then call him a racist.

Michael (Mini Mike) Bloomberg continued to support “Diversity” as he stated minorities needed to be thrown against a wall and frisked.

Go ahead and personally try it Tiny Dancer but before you do make sure you put in your lifts.

Your fall to the pavement will be much greater and well deserved.

Furthermore it appears the pressure is getting to the little lad as it seems he is attempting suicide by courting Hillary What Difference Does it Make Clinton.

It made a difference to Seth Rich.

“Amy Klobuchar’s Rise and Elizabeth Warren Solidarity: New Hampshire Showed Women Can Win”

Punchy Amy came in a distant third (somebody had to) and Cheekbones wasn’t even on the reservation but this is what “winning” looks like to those who struggle with their own gender and whether to sit or stand in the restroom.

Joe Biden decided to parrot Hillary and tell us he didn’t feel no ways tired.

I wonder when they’ll snatch him up and throw him head first into a van.

Probably right after they find the hot sauce in his pockets.

Corn Pop say what!

Windbag Warren struck again with her attempt to use the term “redlining”.

One would think she would be careful with her “colors” but no, Pale Face Lizzie will forever be known as the ultimate Washington Redskin.

Bill Barr continued to disappoint those who believed he was an upgrade at the Attorney General position as he disregarded his boss and let the criminal McCabe off the hook.

The only people being indicted, tried, and imprisoned are President Trump supporters.

Let’s call Barr what he is.

Jeff Sessions 2.0.

Oh Jason wait for the Durham Report.

Yes we waited for the Mueller Report, the IG Report, Q, and a wide variety of promises floating through D.C.

Barr isn’t stuck in the muck.

He’s firmly entrenched as part of the Swamp.

Whether Republicans or The President admit this or not is irrelevant.

Facts are facts.

Here’s another fact.

We are with you Mr. President!

Bring US in and let The People clean up this mess!

Let us return to our current programming.

The Democrats are continuing to allow a Russian supporting Communist sympathizer to lead their Presidential race.

Even the #METOO community has nothing to say about Fantasy Rape Sanders as Katie Kouric spent more time showing us her posterior than follow up questions on Bernie who dodged her ask by saying, “Well it was a long time ago”.

If Bernie is going to be the Democratic nominee then it’s only “fair” that Cosby and Weinstein are released so Meryl Streep can take a knee, Kunta Kinte Kaepernick style, at the feet of her God.

Finally, AOClueless admitted Socialist Sanders doesn’t have a “magic wand” to create Medicare For All.

What???

Come on Liberals!

At least be consistent!

All we’ve heard is this is what the People want and YOU are going to get it for them by taxing the White Privileged One Percent.

What’s that?

You cannot figure out a way to get your hands on TWENTY-TRILLION dollars?

Finally a reality check to you clowns.

While you are temporarily connected to the real world let’s give you one more fact.

You don’t control the climate either.

No you don’t you lying dog faced pony soldiers.

No Criminal Charges for McCabe

by Daveda Gruber:

On Friday the Justice Department has indicated that it will not indict former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe on criminal charges.

An investigation into accusations from the agency’s independent watchdog that lasted almost two years found that McCabe lacked sincerity when he was questioned about leaking information to the media.

McCabe’s attorneys Michael Bromwich and David Schertler, received a letter from Justice Department attorney J.P. Cooney and Assistant U.S. Attorney Molly Gaston which said that the criminal investigation into McCabe is now closed.

Cooney and Gaston wrote, “We write to inform you that, after careful consideration, the government has decided not to pursue criminal charges against your client, Andrew G. McCabe. Based on the totality of the circumstances and all of the information known to the government at this time, we consider the matter closed.”

In statements given to media, Bromwich and Schertler confirmed that they received a phone call from the U.S. Attorney’s office in Washington, D.C.

The call in question was followed by the letter notifying them that “the criminal investigation of Andrew McCabe has been closed.”

Bromwich and Schertler  added that “This means that no charges will be brought against him based on the facts underlying the Office of the Inspector General’s April 2018 report. At long last, justice has been done in this matter.”

The two went on to say, “We said at the outset of the criminal investigation, almost two years ago, that if the facts and the law determined the result, no charges would be brought. We are pleased that Andrew McCabe and his family can go on with their lives without this cloud hanging over them.”

McCabe served at the FBI for 21 years. He became the acting director in May 2017 after President Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey.

The Attorney General at the time, Jeff Sessions fired McCabe in March 2018. That came after the inspector general found he had repeatedly misstated his involvement in a leak to The Journal regarding an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a report in 2018 that showed McCabe lacked candor with FBI Director James Comey, FBI investigators, and inspector general investigators about his authorization to leak some allegedly sensitive information to the Wall Street Journal that revealed the existence of an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

Comey said he did not permit McCabe to tell the media. Horowitz wrote that McCabe’s actions were “designed to advance his personal interests at the expense of Department leadership” and “violated the FBI’s and the Department’s media policy and constituted misconduct.”

McCabe’s legal team, on the other hand, said McCabe’s story changed because he was surprised by and unprepared for the question during his May 2017 interview. The attorneys also said that he was preoccupied with other major events. They went on to say that once Comey was fired later that day, he didn’t think about his answers again as he dealt with leading the bureau for a time.

Horowitz concluded that McCabe misled his team too.

Horowitz said, “It seems highly implausible that McCabe forgot in May what he recalled in detail during his November inspector general testimony. In our view, the evidence is substantial that it was done knowingly and intentionally.”

McCabe has maintained his innocence and said the inspector general’s conclusions relied on mis-characterizations and omissions, which included information that was said to be favorable to McCabe.

McCabe also known as Andy was allegedly the “Andy” who former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page texted about in the famous texts between the two lovers, at the time.

Honestly, I have believed that McCabe was going to be indicted. I have alleged that Strzok, Page and McCabe were in a big part of backing the “insurance policy” that turned out to be the Russian Witch-hunt that came from the Dossier written by Christopher Steele.

Can I say that I am deeply disappointed that the people who I see as potentially guilty are all going free so far?

Why is it that most people who were investigated for being on the side of President Trump are usually indicted and some have been found guilty of crimes that are similar to the allegations against people on the left?

It appears to me that there is a distinct two tier judicial system in play here.

White House Staff’s Reaction to Vindman’s Departure

by Daveda Gruber:

On a radio show “Geraldo in Cleveland” which is a Fox News Radio affiliate WTAM, President Trump made some remarks that enlightened the public as to the reaction of how people inside the White House reacted to Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman being removed.

Vindman, who was one of the key impeachment witnesses in the House impeachment inquiry, was escorted out of the White House last Friday, February 7th, along with his twin brother Yevgeny Vindman, another Army lieutenant colonel who worked at the NSC.

Yevgeny Vindman worked as an attorney who focused on ethics for the NSC and did not testify in the inquiry.

It appears that White House staff applauded as the brothers were removed.

Trump told the radio show, “Vindman was the guy that, when we took him out of the building, the building applauded. I don’t know if you heard that. The whole building, many people in the building started applauding.”

Trump went on to say that he had never met Vindman but thought his actions were “very insubordinate.”

While referring to Vindman’s complaint about the president’s phone call with Ukraine Trump stated, “First of all, that’s very insubordinate, why wouldn’t he go to his immediate – he went to Congress or he went to Schiff or he went to somebody.”

He added, “I’m not a fan.”

Vindman’s lawyer, David Pressman said in a statement that his client was escorted out of the White House complex, told to leave in retaliation for “telling the truth.”

Well, if telling the truth is allegedly fabricating a recollection that he had no firsthand knowledge of to others is “telling the truth” I’d have a lot of stories to tell.

In the meantime a handful of the House’s 17 witnesses still remain in their posts.

I can always be reached on Twitter to discuss political views.
