Thursday Short Cuts

Jonathan Turley is perplexed: “No one has yet to explain to me what the core crime [is] that would be investigated with regard to Russian influence.”

Insight: “I want people to be able to get what they need to live: enough food, a place to live, and an education for their children. Government does not provide these as well as private charities and businesses.” —Davy Crockett (1786-1836)

For the record: “Trump is no intelligence mastermind, and conspiring with Putin and Wikileaks behind the scenes to arrange the hacking of DNC emails isn’t Trump’s style; Trump’s style would be to have something like that drop into his lap and go out in public and cheer for it happening, which is what he actually did.” —Dan McLaughlin

Lots of fluff, little substance: “No one has yet to explain to me what the core crime [is] that would be investigated with regard to Russian influence.” —law professor Jonathan Turley

Leftist contradictions, part I:

“I do not necessarily support the president’s decision. … I think if the president … had fired [James Comey] when he first came in, he would not have to be in a position now where he is trying to make up a story about why. It does not meet the smell test.” —Maxine Waters

“If [Hillary Clinton] had won the White House, I believe that given what [Comey] did to her, and what he tried to do, she should have fired him.” —Maxine Waters

Leftist contradictions, part II:

“What must happen now is that [Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein] appoints a special prosecutor to oversee this investigation.” —Chuck Schumer Wednesday morning

“There are three things that our caucus agreed must happen right away. First, Mr. Rosenstein should not be the one to appoint a special prosecutor.” —Chuck Schumer Wednesday afternoon

And last… “Trump would’ve gotten less ‘cover-up!’ coverage if he instead deleted subpoenaed docs, used BleachBit, then destroyed phones with a hammer.” —Twitter satirist @hale_razor
