“As retired FBI special agent Thomas Baker wrote on these pages last month (“The FBI’s Shocking Disrespect for Congress,” May 11), the FBI has damaged its credibility by flouting subpoenas and slow-rolling or hiding information. This behavior is why Congress must continue to pry out the truth.”
Deputy AG Ron Rosenputz’s recent threat to subpoena congressional staff is a good place to start. Fire the SOB, Mr. President, then order all documents released immediately.

UPDATE: One of the curious things the IG report found was the extent of leaks to the snooze media by literally scores of FBI personnel. In a curious reversal of the old norm of reporters being wined and dined: “FBI employees received tickets to sporting events from journalists, went on golfing outings with media representatives, were treated to drinks and meals after work by reporters, and were the guests of journalists at nonpublic social events…”
The real reason why the FBI had a spy in the Trump campaign
UPDATE: Congress is still waiting for the DOJ-FBI to fess up.
MORE: On the other hand, Speaker Ryan says FBI justified in spying, in prejudging the doc dump.
Yep, we’re in Plato’s Cave, awaiting the next shoe to drop in the continuing saga of the phony Hillary-inspired Resistance. McCabe got the boot, as recommended by his own in-house inspector general not The Donald as the Resistance would have you believe.
But now it’s time for Trump to fire Mueller. Yep fire his ass good and proper.
“Harry Truman had a sign on his desk that said, ‘the buck stops here.’ It’s time for Trump to put that back on display, bite the bullet, and do what’s best for the country.”
Best headlines are, as usual, from Breitbart:
Revealed: FBI, DOJ lied to FISA court, withheld key info so Obama Admin could spy on [Trump] political campaign.
Comey used dossier to apply for FISA warrant…Same dossier he called ‘Salacious, unverified.’
Not to forget:
Trump: FBI, DOJ ‘Politicized Sacred Investigative Process in Favor of Dems’ , Russia investigation ‘An American Disgrace.’
The news reports don’t characterize Rob Ranco’s politics, but just judging from his Twitter comment that Trump Education Secretary Betsy DeVos should be sexually assaulted, it’s pretty clear he’s an anti-Trump liberal if not a leftist.
Ranco got the boot from his Austin law firm Saturday and Austin Community College, where he teaches, is considering kicking him out as well. You’d think a lawyer would be more concerned with due process, which DeVos was upholding when she canceled Obama’s Title IX policy that forced colleges and universities to hold kangaroo courts over accusations of sexual assault. But apparently not.
UPDATE: He has resigned from his Austin Community College gig, whether forced by the college is unclear. He also issued a formal apology to DeVos—which is the old say-what-you-want-then-apologize-routine.
