    Default FBI Director calls out the liar in chief on another one of his lies

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/13/u...und-check.html

    WASHINGTON — The F.B.I. director, Christopher A. Wray, said on Tuesday that the bureau delivered final results in January of its background investigation into Rob Porter, the staff secretary who resigned in disgrace amid spousal abuse allegations. But the White House allowed Mr. Porter to continue serving in his post until the accusations surfaced publicly in press reports last week.In testimony on Capitol Hill, Mr. Wray upended the White House’s timeline of the events that led to Mr. Porter’s departure, contradicting the contention of top officials that his background investigation was “ongoing” at the time of his resignation.
    So the White House account of the Porter firing was yet another lie.

    Why should we be surprised. The liar in chief has been lying up a storm almost daily since entering office and proffering the absurd lie that his inauguration crowd was bigger than Obama's.

    That was a clear signal that this was going to be one of the most dishonest administrations in history and it has sure lived up to that every day since.

    Is there any point where cons will tire of getting lied to so often?

    The lying coming from the top has set such an example that all WH officials are now ok lying about anything, all the time.

What's the alternative? The the white house asked the FBI to look into it some more and they said no? Who is in charge of the FBI exactly?
    I know they don't, the FBI that is. They do the investigations and the agencies grant or deny clearances based on those investigations. I had no idea the WH was not subject to the guidelines every other agency and contractor has to go by, if that is what you are saying. In my view that makes things even that much more suspect.

    My view is that the investigation should be the driving factor and nothing else. This should transcend politics in my opinion. The recommendations of the investigating agency should be adhered to in all cases. It is nothing more than what everybody else has to live by. The biggest factor for me is that the process has been shown to work pretty well. I do relize it is a huge pain in the butt, especially for that level clearance.

    I do not get what who is in charge of the FBI has to do with this investigation. Apparently the vast majority of people working in the WH have passed the process and hold the proper clearances for their positions. That would indicate nothing partisan, right? Maybe this guy just didn't cut the mustard which is not all that uncommon. I don't think Gen Kelly would have been responsible to know about all this before the guy was hired. My beef is ignoring the process, and then lying and blaming it on the investigators.

    I can't believe idiots are believing this is significant.

    Frankly, I think the successful SOTU speech and resulting improvement in Trump poll numbers has caused the left and their media to lose what is left of their minds.

    Because the President hasn't granted it to them, he could. You do know what branch of government is in control of national security clearances and who heads it yes?

    No, the President heads the executive branch, not the FBI, the CIA or the NSA. They work for him, not the other way around. See US constitution for reference.

    For Trump voters itís not significant. You have long since abdicated your moral compass. You donít care about Trump banging porn stars and paying them off with 130 K. You donít mind that the White House knew their staff secretary likes to beat up women and still kept him on and tried to cover up that they knew. You donít mind all the endless lies. Because...Trump. Talk about who has lost their mind...

    They knew what? Oh you mean they knew he was accused, funny how you guys keep forgetting that salient point.

    I vote on issues, not staff problems or Trumps sexual morals from over a decade ago. You and yours can pretend you care about Trumps moral system, you just want your open borders and left wing control back.

    We know the real political basis for the lefts new found moral superiority.

    In a 1998 op-ed for the New York Times, feminist icon Gloria Steinem said of Willey and Jones, "Mr. Clinton seems to have made a clumsy sexual pass, then accepted rejection.Ē[18] Generally dismissive of other women who came forward with tales of Bill Clinton, her piece exemplified a certain kind of reflexive feminist defense of Clinton.[18] It received some criticism when it was published.[19] But then with the passage of time, as evidenced in 2017 by the words of The Atlantic, Steinem's essay had become "notorious" in that "It slut-shamed, victim-blamed, and age-shamed; it urged compassion for and gratitude to the man the women accused."[20]

    Two decades after most of the events in question, on the U.S. television program The View, co-host Joy Behar referred to Bill Clinton's accusers as "tramps". Behar apologized for the sexual slur shortly afterwards

    They've sold they're souls. Every republican running interference for Trump in this forum is morally bankrupt. Ignore their posts.
