Comey owes us an explanation. Will we get it? Probably not! But here’s a preview of some of the questions the senators plan to ask, via CNN:
Senator Blumenthal: “The American people really deserve answers about why he did release his comments and letter, and I think he may want to be more forthcoming and he may want to use this forum as an opportunity to tell the American people his side of the story.”
Yes, let’s get to the bottom of that, Senator Blumenthal!
Senator Coons: “The most important investigation the FBI is currently conducting is into Russia’s interference in our last presidential election. This isn’t just about understanding Russian interference and potential coordination of some kind with the Trump campaign. This is about defending our next election as well.”
Thank you for keeping future elections in mind, Senator Coons! It’s important to note that the Republicans who are obstructing this investigation haven’t just sold out to Putin as a one-off for the demented Circus Peanut; they are imperiling future elections too. Maybe someone will remember to mention the Russian interference in House races in 2016. Eh, probably too much to hope for…
Senator Graham: “I just want an answer. I just want to know what is going on here. You had (former Director of National Intelligence James) Clapper say there was no surveillance of the Trump campaign or Trump Tower. You’ve got press reports a FISA warrant was issued for Carter Page because of his ties to Russia. I just want to know what happened. And if we can’t do it in an open session, let’s do it in a closed session.”
This signals that Huckleberry Hound is on the Trump Train. He’s giving cover for Twitler’s ridiculous Twitter accusations and worrying about surveillance instead of addressing the possibility that Putin keeps Trump’s balls in a tiny specimen jar on his mantel at the Kremlin. Worthless sack of shit.
And speaking of worthless sacks of shit…
Why are our tax dollars funding advertisements for this vapid dilettante’s crappy book of ghost-written, faux-feminist platitudes?

Just in the last week or so, we’ve seen that Trump is using U.S. embassy websites to pimp his shitty private club, and Ivanka is setting up some sort of global fund — which she will run from the West Wing! — and collecting donations from rich and powerful people and organizations. And now this Voice of America thing.
The Trumps are notoriously corrupt — just ask any business, municipality or individual who has ever dealt with them. The orange fart-sack himself had to settle a multi-million dollar fraud case for his scam “university” upon taking office. And now they’ve got all the resources of the US government to facilitate their cons.
Is anyone watching them? Will any government office hold them accountable? Or is this just the way we do things in America now — this gang of tacky-ass grifters can just hijack our institutions for their personal gain, and no one even notices? Someone check the Department of Agriculture site — they’re probably peddling Trump Steaks.
