    OB SCHIEFFER: Today you saw a very different President Trump. He actually sounded presidential. You may agree or disagree with what he said, but he sounded like a president . . . This went over very well, mainly because he stayed on script. No tweets today. But a dignified speech.

    I think very few people would disagree with me when I say he helped himself today, because he didn’t sound like the guy at the end of the bar popping off. He sounded like someone who had actually thought about what he was going to say before he said it.

    JOHN BERMAN: You know, Bob, though, that there will be people who look at that last comment you made and say, you’re normalizing the president. You’re saying because he met this admittedly very low bar for not sounding foolish, in fact, he was in fact presidential. What would you say to criticism like that?

    SCHIEFFER: Well, I’m not trying to normalize him in any way. I’m trying to do what reporters do, and that, report and try to emphasize what I think was important here.-(mic drop)mine

      Between this, the media blackout on the Muslim Summit, and now seeing McConnell is nominating Merrick Garland for FBI, I am getting fearful about this coup impeachment.

          I can’t believe McConnell would be serious, he wasn’t good enough for the SC but now he is on heading the FBI and being impartial? Methinks the RINOs want the Dems to do their dirty work.

Disgraceful. President Trump has performed herculean work over the last 2 days, whereas when I’ve traveled overseas I am jet-lagged and exhausted dramatically. No one should ever have said he was exhausted. They all likely are, yet proceeding on.

        Misprision of a Felony

        Misprision of a felony is the offense of failure to inform government authorities of a felony that a person knows about. A person commits the crime of misprision of a felony if that person:
        Knows of a federal crime that the person has witnessed or that has come to the person’s attention, or failed to prevent.
        Fails to report it to a federal judge or other federal official (who is not thems4elves involved in the crime).

    Despite Harman’s own history with government leakers, Williams declared moments later on the panel during the discussion:

    “Just give me a moment here to say if you have a leak please call me at FOX News. I’m all for leakers. I think leakers are good to contribute to democracy. I don’t think trying to undermine government but I don’t think we condemned Obama for going harshly against people who were disclosing information acting as if they were agents of some foreign government. This is a democracy we have a First Amendment. Reporters play an essential role.”

      Funny. Until this coup attempt I had always thought the FBI and CIA worked in the interest of the American People. Commanded by and in hand with the elected President elected by the people and the missions he gave them. i was wrong it seems. They appear to just do their own thing regardless. We elected President Trump to carry out a different mission than those of Obama and Bush. They are not cooperating. Instead they are subverting and undermining the president. This might end up with the president being forced to take drastic, harsh, action.

        Originally, Comey’s job was simply to totally botch the Hillary investigation and ruin the case against her and her minions within the FBI regarding he emails. At the same time Comey also started work on a parallel assignment to illegally “wiretap” and surveil Donald Trump and every other person involved in the Republican campaign. He was tasked with digging up any dirt or fact that could be used to hurt the Trump campaign later. This included using a fake “dossier” paid for by the Clinton campaign to obtain authorization for the surveillance and to try to associate Trump’s campaign with the Russians. Under Comey’s direction the Trump/republican campaign was monitored and surveilled and all information was provided to the Obama Whitehouse and the Clinton camp all during the campaign.

        Lorretta Lynch was supposed to complete the coverup for Hillary as Attorney General by issuing a finding that the deliberately botched FBI “investigation” did not justify prosecution of Hillary. But someone screwed up and Bill Clinton was video’d meeting with Loretta Lynch in Arizona shortly before she was supposed to make her decision on Hillary (interference with a federal investigation), and Lynch could no longer credibly squash the Hillary scandal. The solution, give the job to James. The Clinton’s owned him and he would have to do whatever is necessary to provide cover.

        AG Sessions and his Deputy AG use the Comey trove of information to determine who has been part of the Comey Syndicate at the FBI. They will be appointing an “interim” Director of the FBI shortly who has not been compromised by Comey, Clinton or Obama. That “interim” Director does not have to be approved by Congress or anyone, and can immediately begin cleaning house at the FBI of all Comey/Clinton/Obama minions, initiating investigations of the Clintons, Clinton Fund, violations of intelligence confidentiality laws by Susan Rice and Obama, human trafficking in DC, political corruption… draining the Swamp. Using the Comey files they can be fairly certain they are not getting another Comey as an “interim”, and they do not have to wait for the circus of appointing a new permanent “Director” through Congressional approval. Most of the heavy lifting on rooting out FBI corruption and starting investigations into the swamp will be done by the “interim” before a new director is appointed. I suspect the Trump administration hopes the approval FBI Director process will be slow and tedious, so there is no political interference with the housecleaning that is starting.

They need to be confronted in their own sanctums and forced to defend their incompetence, corruption and hackery. Their entire industry needs to be called to the carpet. I don’t agree that we need to shut them out or stop press briefings. We simply need to make each encounter with them painful and humiliating for them. We need to see every interview as an opportunity to embarrass and disgrace them — and to enjoy doing it. Make it our sport! Then the game changes. Only then does the game change.
