The firing of James Comey will be good for non-stop news coverage for the next couple of news cycles. Does anyone actually believe the reason Comey was fired was because of how he handled Hillary’s email scandal?
Democrats who blame Comey for Hillary’s loss won’t be celebrating this surprising move because the stated rationale is so obviously not the real rationale. Instead, the Russophobia is going to be ramped up even more.
So, what will come of this move? Will an independent prosecutor take over the investigation into Russian ties to Trump associates? Will the news cycle have any room for, say, the “serious situation” at the Washington nuclear facility in Hanford?
I guess we’ll just have to stay tuned to our distraction devices for the latest update. Maybe that’s the point of this political charade.
