The Christine Blasey Ford saga doesn’t seem to be ending soon. While we await further word from the FBI, here follow some thoughts on her testimony, her various statements, and questions raised during the Senate hearing:
Ford testified that she didn’t know that the Judiciary Committee had offered to send investigators to take her statement, in private, anywhere that she wished. Either she’s not telling the truth or her own lawyers deliberately kept these facts from her, even though Ford’s avowed preference was to not testify in public. Ford has not fired the lawyers, which must mean that she’s okay with their deception, if it was deception. If it was not deception, then she misled the committee, at best. Which is it? It would seem to be malpractice for lawyers to work against the best interest of their client in order to further the interests of their political party. Will there be repercussions for these lawyers?
President Trump has rightly pulled the top secret security clearance of the former CIA director under Barack Obama, John Brennan. Mainstream media and progressives seem to have settled upon the notion that President Trump pulled Brennan’s clearance, and may do the same for other former members of Obama’s administration, out of revenge, spite, to violate their free speech rights and/or, especially, to keep them from cashing in on the benefits of having security clearance.

Progressives, including the mainstream media, are apoplectic because President Trump rescinded former CIA director John Brennan’s top secret security clearance. The president is currently in the process of deciding whether or not other disgraced members of the Obama administration (James Clapper, James Comey, Susan Rice, Michael Hayden, Andrew McCabe, Bruce Ohr) deserve to have their clearances pulled as well. (Hell, yes!)
Progressives ridiculously cry out that removing top secret clearance from former Obama officials violates their First Amendment rights, although nobody is stopping any of them from speaking.

We’ll soon see what “smart justice” will look like, under progressives. First, a little background, from the Los Angeles Times no less: [emphasis added to quotes]
… Robert McCulloch’s 28-year tenure as St. Louis County prosecutor came to a sudden, unexpected end.
In a Democratic primary election, McCulloch got trounced 57% to 43% by Wesley Bell, a city councilman from the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Mo.
You might remember McCulloch. For a brief moment, on Nov. 24, 2014, he was the most-watched law enforcement official in America.
That night, eastern Missouri was bracing for violence as McCulloch announced that a grand jury had declined to indict police Officer Darren Wilson for fatally shooting unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown after a struggle in the city of Ferguson.

The mainstream media and all their progressive allies are currently in a tizzy, claiming that President Trump now “admits” that his son’s meeting with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign was to gather “information” about Hillary Clinton. Oh, my gosh! They’ve got him now.
