It is in no way, shape, or form easy to be a member of the Trump administration. Practically everyone and their mother’s, brother’s sister’s uncle’s dog is looking for any kind of dirt that can be dug up and used to bury not only the individual’s career, but their whole life if possible.
The latest member of the administration to be put in the crosshairs is Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who has been on a tear lately ripping folks to shreds over the the whole Russia investigation junk still being harped on by the left-wing media. Part of this means she’s dug her talons into former FBI Director James Comey and the testimony he gave to Congress.
She made some comments about believing that Comey may have violated the law by releasing documents to the press, a statement which didn’t sit well with progressives who now want to bring her up on charges for an insane reason.
“The memos that Comey leaked were created on an FBI computer while he was the director. He claims they were private property. They clearly followed the protocol of an official FBI document. Leaking FBI memos on a sensitive case, regardless of classification, violates federal laws, including the Privacy Act, standard FBI employment agreement, and non-disclosure agreement all personnel must sign. I think that is pretty clean and clear that that would be a violation.”
Now, Democrats in the Senate believe Sanders may be the next person indicted because of her comments against Comey.
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) went on MSNBC earlier this week to declare that Sanders was in jeopardy of having charges brought against her for attempting to align the character of Comey to a grand jury that will ultimately oversee the Mueller investigation. Whitehouse said (emphasis added):
“The three torpedoes that Sarah Huckabee Sanders shot at James Comey, which open up an entirely new avenue in the case for Mueller. There’s a statute, 1504 in the obstruction of justice statutes, that talks about attempts to influence grand jurors. So the question for Sarah Huckabee Sanders is, ‘Who asked you to do that? Who told you to do that?’
And once you know who it is, you look to their motivation. And if their motivation was to poison the reputation of Jim Comey with grand jurors, you’ve got another count in the indictment.”
All these people seem to want to do is take their political opponents and find some way to toss them in the clink. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton, someone who actually broke the law on numerous occasions and in multiple scandals, is still allowed to roam free without a worry in the world.
In fact, it’s sexist to even suggest she be put behind bars and held accountable for her actions. Ridiculous, isn’t it?
The world of modern politics has devolved into nuttiness I never thought I’d see in this country.
