I mused recently on Twitter to one of my correspondents that the goofy acting goober Carter Page isn’t really a “foreign policy expert,” but in truth he is a blatant Russian spy. And it seemed only fitting, what with his bald pate and big hawk nose and picket fence smile that he could be cast as an evil parody of the super-sleuth The Shadow on the Groundhog Day… Which could make for just six more weeks of our Orange Overlord’s illicit reign in the Oval Office.
Release of the much ballyhooed “Nunes Memo,” all three and a half pages of its feverish fantasy, only works to confirm that the FBI and others were well within their rights to seek FISA court actions against the Russian plant Carter Page. Donnie Dollfingers’ and others efforts to refute the investigation as a witch hunt and a hoax look damn silly, and border on the possible treason coming from the looming conspiracy charges. It’s a stupid case of publish AND perish; firing Bob Mueller or anyone else in the Justice Dept. to sweep the investigation under a rug just makes it all ever more damning and odious.
