Double Plus Untrue

Yesterday, two sources one would normally associate with support for the Deep State delivered news that exposed lying by government agencies. First, WaPo published an extensive article based on a lessons learned report by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction that contain details about how multiple government agencies had misrepresented the “progress” in the Afghan War to the American public. Then, another report was publicly issued Department of Justice IG which detailed lies told by the FBI to deceive the FISA court to issue surveillance warrants against Carter Page and other malfeasance associated with the Russia Collusion Hoax.

You know, it’s almost enough to make one think that the swamp really does need draining and that some (or all) of the dangerous reptiles be dealt with.

Who’s on First?

Or rather, “Who will get indicted first?” There’s a post over at The American Thinker that offers a list of people whose names are likely to be mentioned in the Department of Justice Inspector General’s report due later this month. It is separates those who should be indicted but won’t be from those who will probably be indicted but may not be. Barack Obama—mishandling of classified information (18 USC §798), obstruction of a criminal investigation (18 USC §1510) with respect to emails sent to and received from Hillary personal server, and obstruction of a criminal investigation (18 USC §1510)—head the first list. James Comey—making false statements under oath (18 USC §1001), mishandling of classified information (18 USC §798) (memos shared with Daniel Richman and Patrick Fitzgerald), and unauthorized disclosure (leaking) of sensitive FBI information (26 USC §7213)—leads the second.

Had Comey not wanted to be the “corpse at every funeral, the bride at every wedding and the baby at every christening,” these shenanigans would still be secret.
