ę Michael Flynn Asks Appeals Course to Do Its Duty and Dismiss His Case, and Furthermore, to Remove the Lawless Lunatic Emmet Sullivan from the Case | Main | Trump Tells Senators: My Three Oldest Children Were All Unmasked By Obama and His Minions On Inauguration Day Ľ

Jim Jordan: Where The Hell Is Christopher Wray While the FBI He Supposedly Leads is Exposed as a Criminal Enterprise?

This is Trump's fault -- Wray must be fired. For cause.

I imagine Wray will be fired the day after the election.

I don't know if waiting is smart.

Reps. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Mike Johnson, R-La., on Monday night said FBI Director Christopher Wray "has declined to respond" to their May 4 letter seeking information and interviews with key FBI officials after the bombshell revelations in the Michael Flynn case -- prompting the lawmakers to take matters into their own hands.

"Because Director Wray has declined to respond to our request, we are forced to write to you directly," Jordan and Johnson wrote in an extraordinary letter to FBI agent Joe Pientka, who participated in the unusual January 24, 2017 White House interview that led to Flynn's prosecution for one count of making false statements to the FBI.


"Where is Christopher Wray?" Jordan tweeted Monday night.

Meanwhile, Jonathan Turley asks if Samantha Power committed perjury when she swore to Congress she had no memory of ever having unmasked anyone. In fact, she'd submitted seven unmasking requests.

So, did she commit perjury?

If you go according to Democrats' previous standards for perjury, yes she did. Democrats claimed that Jeff Sessions answer about not remembering seeing Russian Abassador Kislyak one day could -- must -- support a perjury charge.

Just as they claimed "Believe All Women" in Brett Kavanaugh's case.

It seems they've suddenly shifted standards, though.

When Sessions had such gaps, the media spent weeks exploring the need for a perjury investigation and Democratic members demanded such an inquiry. He ultimately was investigation for perjury by the FBI.

Media like Politico lined up prosecutors to say that the "no recollection" claim is transparent and weak as a defense to perjury, including many of the former prosecutors routinely cited for supporting criminal charges against Trump and other Trump officials. Democratic insider and former Watergate prosector, Richard Ben-Veniste, said "Simply repeating the words 'I donít recall' is not a magical amulet to ward off any further trouble." On, Sarah Kendzior declared "The first is that he is a skillful liar, flagrantly flirting with perjury as he denies or pretends to forget."

However, Biden is not Kavanuagh and Power is not Sessions. The most notable distinction is their party affiliation. Suddenly sexual assault and perjury becomes a more challenging and nuanced question. The media has been virtually silent on this glaring failure to recollect. The fact is that I did not view Sessions as a strong case for perjury and I do not view Powers as a strong case. I also have never supported the view that any accuser must be believed as opposed to must be heard and taken seriously. My problem is the relative easy shown in these cases for Democratic members and commentators in shifting from one position to the other. The only common denominator is not just political identification but political convenience.
