Tonight we’re gonna party like it’s 1973
Yeah. That’s not going to fly here in Casa Cameron (I mean, come ON. You people KNOW me). And right now it is damn hard for me to pick my jaw off my chest from where it dropped when I saw the news that 45 had fired FBI Director James Comey, allegedly for the way he handled the situation with Secretary Clinton’s emails (I swear to God, I go to the gym for one hour and all hell breaks loose in D.C.).
Which is bullshit, and we all know it’s bullshit. But once again it’s very clear that 45 does not know his history, and has never heard of the Saturday Night Massacre, where then-President Nixon fired independent special prosecutor Archibald Cox and Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus resigned in protest, triggering the series of events that led to Nixon’s impeachment. Now clearly that particular parade is not going to happen this time, since Smilin’ Jeff Sesssions is AG and is perfectly happy to go along with whatever 45 wants. But with any luck and a good tail wind this is the beginning of the end for the current administration, especially as Comey was supposed to testify on Thursday at the same hearings where Sally Yates became a verb for “handing an overbearing idiot his ass.”
I don’t think 45 quite gets that Comey can still testify as a civilian. This should be fascinating to watch.
