I've heard of talking out of your ass, but not talking out of other people's asses.

"James Comey posts weird collage of FBI agent rear ends in apparent response to Donald Trump."

Comey let Hillary skate. Comey is corrupt.

Bob Boyd said...

Presumably his point was, The law is an ass.

tcrosse said...

Since Comey quotes Scripture, which one is Balaam's Ass ?

Rusty said...

Well Bob. Comey is an ass anyway.
We can't lie to the FBI, but the FBI can make up as much shit against someone as they wish.

Saint Croix said...

I have solved the riddle on why we are seeing FBI ass

it's because they have a giant FBI on the back of their jacket

otherwise you wouldn't know who the hell they are

Saint Croix said...

If Trump walked around with a giant PRESIDENT on the back of his jacket

everybody would make fun of him

They aren't photos of their asses, they're photos from behind. I assume to protect their identity.

He's Comey the Clown.

Unlike Homey, Comey DO play dat.

But like Homey, Comey the Clown is always looking to get even with The Man who is holding him down.

Comey is off his rocker. His tweet appears to express his fascination with the pert bottoms of FBI personnel in ill-filling chinos. Jim Harbaugh, call your office!

Team Mueller is morphing into the Obstruction of Justice phase now that they have cleared up the preliminaries of getting Flynn to plead guilty to lying about a non-crime, according the Andrew McCarthy.

That fellow Trump actually suggested that Comey move on from that lying Flynn, lying liar about non-crimes that he was and fired as he had been by Trump for lying to Pence, and get around to more honest fare, like confirming in public that Trump was not under investigation, which Comey had told him three times privately. And then Trump fired Comey, with a report in Trump's hand about how Comey screwed up the Hillary e-mails situation (written by Rod Rosenstein). Of course, Comey's real position was that Trump was not under investigation yet.

How could that not be obstruction of justice, say Comey and Mueller?

This is like a convoluted plot of a flailing political thriller written by the creative team of Comrade Detective.

Mueller and Comey better be careful. The people who elected Trump are not polite, passive limited government types like the original Tea Partiers. Remember how Dems rallied around that perv, Bill Clinton? It is going to be much more than that.

Amadeus 48 said...

Of course, that was "ill-fitting chinos", but ill- filling chinos kinda works, too.

Mac McConnell said...

I think Comey is making the point that the leadership of the FBI over the last decade or so has rat fucked their brand in the ass.

Saint Croix:

"it's because they have a giant FBI on the back of their jacket"

And I think of the great Dennis Farina, having fun in Out of Sight: "Do you have one that says 'Undercover?'"

CWJ said...

"I assume to protect their identity."

Our version of the eastern block's secret police. Loyal first and foremost to the party.

Mac McConnell said...

Comey should be careful, he was fired while he was out of town, 7 hours away by jet. Trump's DOJ seized all the contents in his office. Notes, files and recorded tapes.

rightguy2 said...

More female butts than male butts. Hmmm...

Hagar said...

I don't think doing another Scooter Libby job on either Trump or his team is going to go over very well.

Breezy said...

I respect the FBI, but not Comey, Mueller and the others who are trying to find evidence in a Russia-Trump-collusion crime where no criminal event has happened. That is ass-backwards.

Gretchen said...

Comey is an ass man, I mean he's an ass, man.

Not really the point. The point is to tear down every institution in the country so that the nihilism and ego of the Great Leader can rage unquestioned.

Ann Althouse said...

Bad link fixed. Sorry. Some comments re bad link removed (but I appreciate the prompt, so don't feel bad about that).

HoodlumDoodlum said...

Every day I grow more and more convinced that we must return power to the GOP establishment types who supported people like Comey & Evan McMullin against the ignorant masses & Trump-types who said those people were corrupt partisans and, at best, Leftist shills.

Thanks again, nice smart people. "Comey is a life-long FBI professional; we can trust his judgement & feel confident that such a man would never put his thumb on the scale to help someone like Hillary and/or the Dems--how dare you even suggest it?!"

Real solid work, guys.

Rusty said...

"Not really the point. The point is to tear down every institution in the country so that the nihilism and ego of the Great Leader can rage unquestioned."

Obama lost.

Amadeus 48 said...

Um, ARM--it was Comey that sent the tweet, not Trump. I agree that Comey's point is tear down every institution in the country so that the nihilism and ego of Comey can rage unquestioned, but I am surprised to hear you say it.

Mac McConnell said...

Always love the way these political hack cowards at the top of the FBI always defend the themselves by stating how the agents are in harms way on a daily basis. None of these bags of dicks, Comey, Yates, Mueller's crew, ETC. have ever been in harms way, they are political players. The only harm they've got on the street is maybe chewing gum on the sole of their expensive shoes.

Michael K said...

This is the link to the FBI tweet.

Inga said...

It was their backs morseo than their asses. It depicts them turning their backs to him because he’s an embarrassment to the country. Who has kept our asses safe after 9/11 and since? Doesn’t occur to anyone here that he’s attempting to save his own ass by denigrating the Justice Department and the FBI?

"AReasonableMan said...

Turned your retard to 11, eh?

AJ Lynch said...

Gov. Terry McCauliff's PAC gave a donation of $700,000 to FBI Asst Director McCabe's wife's political campaign. She was running for a Virginia state district office not a statewide office. That has to be the largest donation EVER from any state to a candidate running for a district office.

mockturtle said...

The message seems to be that the FBI is comprised of a bunch of asses. Comey isn't playing with a full deck.

Unknown said...

The photo collage doesn’t seem to achieve the intended “feel good” feeling...
Instead I’m thinking about those rank-and-file agents desperately trying to avoid the appearance of bias!
This Comey couldn’t get a single smiling face for his tribute.

Gk1 said...

This reminds me of Rubio's "small hands" crack at trump. Remember Rubio was the sober adult in the room and trump was the undisciplined child. Rubio was sinking daily and threw out this jibe just to be noticed or thought relevant. It only served to diminish rubio's standing further and did nothing to stop the donald. If comey was trying to prove the fbi is a non partisan, professional, organization he should keep his trap shut and try to show some dignity (if he has any left)

Tim said...

Comey is apparently a junior high school girl.

tim in vermont said...

The FBI could help their reputation by dealing fairly with everybody, but that's not how they do things.

Sydney said...

I thought it was his way of saying, "Kiss my ass," but maybe it was a privacy thing or the FBI logo thing. Hard to tell, but weird nonetheless.

Unknown said...

Maybe Comey is gay, he has the gay gaze. Explains a lot

McCarthy at NR says Muller is going for "obstruction of justice".

You can't obstruct justice when you are the boss,
but the FBI can file a report stating a "process crime"

Which the media can celebrate.

Thus setting Trump up for impeachment. It doesn't have to go through to get in the way and assist the out party: just be a circus that discourages Rep voters.

That is why Comey Yates and Holder and the rest are tweeting madly about "independence" last two days - they were obstructed!

Alternative is the Logan act for running foreign policy during transition from election to swear in.

All politics. Real story is how politicized the "intelligence" agency has become.

Matthew Sablan said...

"McCarthy at NR says Muller is going for "obstruction of justice"."

-- It would be stupid to do that since Comey admitted to Congress there was no obstruction. Unless Mueller wants to bag Comey for perjury as well.

Inga said...

“You can't obstruct justice when you are the boss,”

Untrue. Richard Nixon.

"(The) President cannot obstruct justice because he is the chief law enforcement officer under (the Constitution's Article II) and has every right to express his view of any case," Dowd told Axios.”

“Former Obama administration White House counsel Bob Bauer disputed Dowd's position.
"There is no express grant of immunity under the Constitution to protect the President who commits a felony," he told CNN. "Those who have argued for it have to cobble together their case primarily out of a concern about the debilitating effects of a President in legal trouble on the conduct of government. But they have a high burden to carry in claiming that the President charged with faithful execution of the law is above it. It simply contravenes basic understandings about the rule of law in the constitutional order -- as Richard Nixon learned in trying to withhold his incriminating tapes."

But it's not illegal for the FBI or DOJ or the security services to lie. It's beginning to look like that's what they are paid to do.

Of all people to come to the defense of Comey's tweet, but disgraced crooked AG Eric Holder and "I will not resign and refuse to take the call from POTUS" Preet Bharara. BODs

Ray said...

The FBI seems to be at war with Trump, and it's not going well.

There is an investigation going on for 11 months in the FBI covering at least politicization of how the Clinton probe was handled. This was what caught the FBI agent who was having an affair and texted anti Trump stuff.

And now Nunez is threatening contempt, since the FBI refused to send him info.

The #2 person at the FBI's wife got money from Democrats. Judicial Watch just released more documents on this.

The FBI seemed more concerned about the Phoenix Tarmac Meeting on who leaked it. Great work Judicial Watch!

And Mueller's only gotten 2 low level people on low level charges after $5 Million going after Trump.

robother said...

"Fidelity Bravery Integrity." Needs a fourth -y word to complete the circle on the Seal....Hillarity.

Matthew Sablan said...

How can Trump's not immediately firing Comey and ordering the investigation to continue be obstruction, but Obama's firing an IG and calling him senile not?

Matthew Sablan said...

"And now Nunez is threatening contempt, since the FBI refused to send him info."

-- People need to lose jobs over that.

tim in vermont said...

Have we found out yet who used Samantha Power's name to unmask all of those Trump transition officials since she has denied it? If that isn't political abuse of the Patriot Act, it kind of raises the question of what actually would be considered abuse.

sparrow said...

The FBI has questions around their integrity going way back, but if we restrict to post 1992: Richard Jewell, Waco, & Ruby Ridge all tainted the rep of the FBI.

Mueller and Comey are more recent than that, but even if they are new players the game certainly looks similar from the outside. The Comey whitewash of Hillary was so blatant that any claim of integrity now is simply not credible. I think he can reasonably be investigated for obstruction of justice for the server fiasco where they admitted to destroying evidence.

The elite can really get away with it, at least very often. They needn't be that careful as there is little will or effort to police them.

Matthew Sablan said...

"Have we found out yet who used Samantha Power's name to unmask all of those Trump transition officials since she has denied it?"

-- Honestly, that makes me wonder if Flynn's unmasking was illegally done, since Powers didn't do it like we originally thought, but rather, someone impersonated her to order it -- does the FBI actually even have *legal* evidence against Flynn about what he said in that call besides what Flynn lied about?

tim in vermont said...

If the Obama administration took the Logan Act seriously, what is Obama doing flying around behind Trump talking to the same leaders and publicly pronouncing Trump's policies "temporary"?

Judging by Flynn's deal, it looks like the Logan Act is the charge.

tim in vermont said...

This is going to end up like the indictment of Rick Perry by the drunk driving, office abusing, D.A. in Texas.

hombre said...

Like the NYT, the FBI has always been political. Like the NYT, the FBI has always denied it. Both have now pulled out the stops and are wallowing in their politics and their corruption.

Adding to Ray's observations at 10:23: Indiscriminate grants of immunity by FBI/DOJ to Hillary email cronies; Comey pardons Hillary; FBI/DOJ withhold evidence and testimony from Congressional oversight committees; FBI ignores FOIA requests and lies about documentation re the "tarmac meeting." Corrupt!!

Sessions is stranded in a den of iniquity and does not appear to be coping. Rod Rosenstein, really? He should have picked a smart, partisan ass-kicker for that spot. There would be no Mueller and there shouldn't be. Stupid Republicans!

Matthew Sablan said...

And yes. You should be able to get in trouble for lying to the FBI, even if there is no crime. Don't lie to the police. You have the choice to not say anything if you want, but lying to the FBI just wastes everyone's time.

Dickin'Bimbos@Home said...

Thou Shall Not Question the Super-Human FBI.

tim in vermont said...

It's a pretty good fork though, Trump can't go after Obama without legitimizing charges against himself, except Trump was President-elect, and when Obama told the Iranians to hold out for a better deal, he was a candidate, and now he's a private citizen interfering with Trumps foreign policy in Asia, probably North Korea too.

Video Flashback: Obama State Dept, ‘No Problem’ With Michael Flynn Contacting Russian Officials

Balfegor said...

The FBI was famously independent of political control. I suppose we're now to regard this as a good thing?

Darrell said...

"For those feeling the urge to be absolutist about the silence from incoming administrations on such policy matters, I refer you once again to the Obama team’s activities in 2008, when they effectively spiked the Bush administration’s policy on missile defense installations in Eastern Europe. "

Flynn pleads to process crime, over transition-period chats with Russians like ones Obama had

'“You can't obstruct justice when you are the boss,”

Untrue. Richard Nixon.'

Ah, yes. I remember it well when Nixon was convicted of obstruction of justice. Don't I? Oh. Maybe not.

But, after all, articles of impeachment are the same as convictions. They're not? Oh.

Nonapod said...

It seems clear to me that for a long time now the FBI, or at least large parts of it, have been nothing but the incompetent myrmidons of the Clintons, the Obamas, and more broadly the Democrat party. And Comey was just their head henchman. Now he and many others have been reduced to CYA panic mode. So of course he's going to post weird things, he's a scrambling unscrupulous idiot.

Ray said...

This took a bit of looking to find!

Nominees Confirmations pending and confirmed before the Senate.

http://www.cnn.com/interactive/2017/politics/trump-nominations/

Trump basically has 50% of his Nominees for Justice still not confirmed. 48 confirmed, 40 pending.

Bruce Hayden said...

Reposted from a previous thread:


The problem with obstruction of justice is that essentially means obstruction of the Deep State. Who gets to define “justice” here? It should be the President, but here, it seems to be a hybrid group of Dem operatives and government bureaucrats. They have been nailing people involved somewhat with Trump on process crimes. No underlying crimes, but rather lying to the FBI. Etc. Perjury traps. But the thing to remember is that Comey, Mueller, etc would likely not fare any better if the tables were turned, if the obstruction trap were set for them. Probably much worse. We know that Comey illegally leaked information to the MSM, and someone on Mueller’s team is doing the same. Those two, plus Rosenstein, McCade, etc, were involved in keeping the Russian involvement in the Uranium One deal away from Congress, and then the same cabal seems to have had some involvement in using the Trump Dossier to get a FISA warrant, which helped snare Manafort, and start the Russian Collaboration scandal meme, and maybe even helped pay for it. The FBI under Comey appears to have helped concoct the fake Dossier, known that it was false, that it was partly, at least coming from the Russians, and that it was the Dems and Crooked Hillary who were funding it, and then had the audacity to go to the FISA Court for a warrant to tap the Trump campaign for Russian involvement based on the Dossier they knew to be false, and helped, maybe, to create. These are the people who appointed the special prosecutor and are, essentially, deciding who to go after with these process crimes and “obstruction of justice”. It stinks to high heaven. None of them were even elected dog catcher, but are seemingly trying to take down a sitting President from within his own administration.

This is starting to piss me off. The FBI routinely lies to Congress, the courts, and the public. Someone in the FBI very likely purJURED themselves in applying for the FISA warrant based on the Russian sourced, fake, Trump Dossier. Someone lied when they said that they had no information on the guy on Mueller’s team who got reassigned for tweeting about Trump with his girlfriend. They lied to both the courts and Congress. They lied about what they knew about the tarmac meeting between Clinton and Lynch. Every time you hear about “stonewalling”, realize that it almost necessarily means at least obstruction of justice, if not blatant perjury.

Who are they to decide who has to tell the truth and who gets to lie? That they can lie through their teeth to get convictions for lying to them? We didn’t elect them. We elected Trump and. a Republican Congress. A country supposed governed with the consent of the governed, under siege by a group of unelected bureaucrats and functionaries.

Bruce Hayden said...

“Trump basically has 50% of his Nominees for Justice still not confirmed. 48 confirmed, 40 pending.”

My guess is that the reason for that is that Schumer and his caucus know that DoJ is the center of the Resistance. The longer they can keep those slots unfilled, the more damage the Deep State and their Dem enablers can do to the Trump Administration.

Clyde said...

Trump: "No, Comey! AssETS! I asked you to show me FBI AssETS! Not asses! They aren't the same thing."

Comey: (In Emily Litella voice) "Oh! That's different. Never mind!"

Matthew Sablan said...

... The FBI guy who tweeted anti-Trump messages... was also literally in bed with someone in another investigation. That's the sort of thing that screwed up the Ted Stevens result. At least no one has died in a plane crash though; this can still be righted.

Howard said...

Cuckservatives only like law enforcement when they kill unarmed blacks.

Yancey Ward said...

It has been hilarious watching James Comey make it clear that he was never qualified to be FBI director with every action he has taken since getting fired, and I think this even though this particular critique of a tweet is unfair.

Bruce Hayden said...

Andy McCarthy again:

1.) There is a great deal of misinformation in the commentariat about how prosecutors build cases.

2.) For all practical purposes, the collusion probe is over. While the “counterintelligence” cover will continue to be exploited so that no jurisdictional limits are placed on Special Counsel Robert Mueller, this is now an obstruction investigation.

3.) That means it is, as it has always been, an impeachment investigation.

320Busdriver said...

Strzok headed up the Clinton email investigation and pushed the BS "no intent" angle that Comey used to clear her. He also was one of two who interviewed Clinton on Jul 2.

Yeah, nothing to see here folks. Big government is working well for ALL of us..

Matthew Sablan said...

Holy... they lied to Flynn and when he didn't have a lawyer present continued the interview. Yeah, he waived his right to a lawyer when he realized what was going on... but imagine how the left would treat any other police/FBI interrogation of a subject under false pretenses, without a lawyer present with no underlying crime to investigate.

Original Mike said...

We need some new FBI guys.

HoodlumDoodlum said...

My favorite part is all the journalists loudly crowing about how great and respectable the FBI is and how terrible it would be if the public lost faith in the Justice Dept. generally...all after the DOJ under Obama & Holder remorselessly investigated lots of journalists & went to great lengths to pursue criminal cases against journalists who received leaked info.

But the FBI's working against Trump, a Republican president, so it's hooray FBI and boo anyone who questions that agency's integrity, now.

Funny stuff.

tim in vermont said...

It's unbelievable to me how the media remains utterly incurious about who was abusing the Patriot Act, so is Howard.

Matthew Sablan said...

Huh. Our guy who tainted the Trump and Flynn investigations is also getting the blame for changing the wording in the Comey statement about Clinton. I wonder when he gets airbrushed out of the group photos.

gnome said...

Weasels have tails. Comey is showing that the FBI has some members (at least at operations level) who aren't weasels.

Matthew Sablan said...

This guy also opened the investigation into Trump. ... Sorry. This is a fatal blow. This partisan hack has killed any validity in the investigation.

320Busdriver said...

Tucker is laying it out in his open.

Deep State?

You decide.

Comanche Voter said...

I dunno. As long as Comey is going all Biblical on us, qouting scripture and all that, it's only fair to reply in kind. I look at that strong manly jawbone of Comey--and I see the jawbone of an ass. A jackass to be precise.

320Busdriver said...

Amazing commentary on Tucker by both fmr us atty Joe Digenova and Judicial Watch pres Tom Fitton.

DOJ and FBI both appear to be rotten from the head.
