Congressman McClintock Calls For Independent Prosecutor In Wake Of Comey Firing

Roseville, CA...Congressman McClintock released the following statement on the firing of now former FBI Director Comey. "I strongly support President Trump’s decision to fire James Comey for gross misconduct during his tenure, and only wish he had done so on January 20th. Because of the highly politicized circumstances involving the Russia inquiry, I think an independent prosecutor would be advisable to place the inquiry above reproach.




I believe it is equally important to appoint an independent prosecutor to purse the investigations that were swept under the rug during the Obama administration, including the use of the IRS to intimidate Tea Party members, the Clinton email scandal and how much top secret intelligence was lost to our enemies, and the unfolding scandal involving use of the NSA to spy on political opponents."

    SCARY TIMES IN D.C.
    Posted on: 2017-05-12 21:18:47   By: Anonymous
     

    I am watching 'deplorables' peel their "TRUMP/PENSE" bumperstickers off of their cars faster than the POTUS can tweet "am I great or what?"

    I predict that, in the next 6 months, tyhe following will happen:

    1. The mature and sensible Republican senators will recognize the danger of Donald J. Trump...
    2. Impeachment proceedings will be in place in both/either branches of government

    It's been

Positioning for Trump Russia Connection

McClintock is doing this so the GOP gets to pick the Prosecutor. They will pick someone who can be manipulated.

    Naturally the Senate Leader Mitch McConnell gets to pick any investigator. The candidate selection is the prerogative of the Senate Majority leader.

    If you are concerned about manipulation, Comey was manipulated, Comey had become a politicized, self-inflated pawn and was seeking face time.

    Besides, there is no Trump-Russia connection. There is no there there.
    The story was manufactured by Shrillary just a day after her election loss.

        + 1, So sad to see our new President say and do what he wants but make no mistake don't you dare say anything about him. If you do he'll tweet all kinds of 1/2 truths and lies about you. Look what he did during the campaign, Mitt Romney didn't think he was fit for the Presidency and he was correct. He led that man to slaughter after he cheated to get the Presidency . Then Comey, gets rid of him cause he saw his ties to Russia. Time will show, invest in egg stock, cause thousands will be wearing it on their faces.

An independent prosecutor is selected by the DOJ, not the political hacks in congress. Not that that guarantees anything.

If that's true, Einstein, then why did the investigation begin in June of 2016 BEFORE the election was held?

              Why should the rich pay for your Healthcare? Currently the rich pay for their healthcare and many others by the amount of taxes they pay. Obama made the rich pay an additional tax to help support Obamacare. Was this right to do, considering how much the rich already pay in taxes. So it is ok for others to pay your way, you are good with that?

Same old, same old. Deflect, assign blame elsewhere (while crediting selves with any good stuff begun years ago like a growing economy), create a new diversion.
