Any Way You Slice It

Dateline: Washington D. C., November 23, 2018.

Good old Elijah Cummings, D-Md., will become the Chair of the House Oversight Committee come January. The 67-year-old, who’s been a politician for more than half of his life, announced that the Committee will investigate Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner next year.

Despite voter polls warning of adverse consequences, investigating all things Trump is a given now that the Dems control the House. But Cummings’ investigation is especially ill-advised. The Committee will delve into Ivanka’s and Jared’s use of a private email account for official White House business in 2017.

In pursing this inquiry, Cummings will do a deep dive into a very shallow pool. A brain wreck on the bottom is predictable. Why? The investigation begs comparisons with Hillary’s private email server kept in the basement of her New York house. Let’s take a peek at what the comparison will reveal:

Hillary

  • Thousands of pieces of classified information Hillary stored on the private server while Secretary of State.
  • The classified email she sent from her server to her staff on their private email accounts.
  • The high likelihood that her staff’s phones were hacked by foreign intelligence agencies.
  • Erasing more than thirty thousand messages from the server, despite an outstanding subpoena for the docs.
  • The fibs told by the senior politician about her awareness of wrongdoing.

Ivanka

  • Less than one hundred emails sent to or from Ivanka’s private email account from or to government officials.
  • The use of the private account halted after she was made aware that it violated federal rules.
  • None of the email contained classified information.
  • Not even a single message was destroyed and all email has since been placed on government servers.

Rather than resurrecting Hillary’s email controversy, Cummings should conjure up a more lively ghost of a chance.

What Is Going On?

President Trump walked away from denuclearization talks with North Korea in Hanoi last night. Demands made by Noko’s war-loving, crazy dictator were unrealistic. As the President said, no deal is better than a bad one.

Meanwhile, Pakistan and India are at it again over the India-controlled section of Kashmir.

This week, they both claimed to have shot down military planes belonging to the other side. Both are threatening escalation, which is no laughing matter. They each have a nuclear arsenal including about 100 warheads and each has test fired nuclear-capable missiles.

Pakistan is now doing some nuclear saber-rattling to ward off a superior conventional attack by India.

The prospect of international nuclear war may not be as threatening to this Country as hearings going on in Congress this week. The Michael Cohen’s Spectacle of Self-Serving Slander is a prelude to impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

But last year, Cohen pled guilty to lying to Congress, among a host of other felonies. On Tuesday, he was disbarred from the practice of law. En route to serving a three-year prison sentence, he stopped by the Hill to chat up Congress again.

For our representatives to seek the unsubstantiated testimony of a felonious liar who has duped them in the past is an act of desperation. It is looking like the Mueller investigation will end with a whimper rather than a bang. So, Dems are casting about trying to find another source to feed the Trash Trump Frenzy. In Cohen, they caught a big, fat bottom feeder.

Yummy.
