After watching former F.B.I. director Jim Comey admit to having committed multiple felonies and then being allowed to walk out of the Senate Intelligence Committee without being arrested, President Trump realized how deeply rooted in our government the resistance to his presidency is.
The fact that Special Counsel Robert Mueller didn’t order an immediate search of Comey’s home, computers, and F.B.I. files, and then ordered the depositions of Comey’s closest associates at the F.B.I. only adds to our concerns that the fix is in against President Trump.
The fact that no Congressional Republicans so much as chastised Comey’s usurpation of judicial power told President Trump the depth and breadth of the swamp is committed to draining.
Comey’s lies under oath, on Thursday, gave President Trump all of the ammunition he needed to commit himself fully to exposing Comey and then by extension those who defended and even praised his work, (probably because he never sought to indict them either.) That included many Republican lawmakers.
Trump’s counter-offensive has begun.
President Trump is man enough to withstand the barrage against him while he waits for his opportunity to strike.
