Republican hypocrisy reached unhealthy levels following the firing of Comey and the bombshell report that showed Trump supplying our Russian enemies with classified intelligence. You know, an actual act of treason that should warrant a chorus of “Lock him up!” shouts in front of a large crowd. With the exception of Senator John McCain and a few House Republicans, the very same party that hounded and harassed Hillary Clinton over her email server–making it a signature issue in the 2016 clown show–have remained silent.
But liberals can find one unusual ally and bedfellow in Fox News personality Juan Williams.
Although Fox News host Williams is not exactly glowing with high praise across most democratic and liberals Facebook news feeds, he managed to give himself an ounce of credibility when he called out Republican hypocrisy on Hillary’s emails. Here’s some of Williams’ column:
When will Republicans drop the partisan games and apologize to Hillary Clinton?
Last week Trump agreed with a memo from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein which flatly stated that it is not possible to ‘defend the director’s handling of the conclusion of the investigation of Secretary Clinton’s e-mails.’That memo was released a week after Comey gave testimony to Congress in which he wrongly claimed ‘hundreds and thousands of emails,’ had been forwarded by Clinton aide Huma Abedin to her husband’s non-secure computer. In fact, most of the Clinton emails found on the non-government computer ‘occurred as a result of a backup of personal electronic devices,’ according to the FBI. And only two ’email chains’ of classified information had been mistakenly sent to the private computer.
But Republicans still refuse to accept the reality that Russia, a hostile foreign power, played a major role in electing Trump. Comey’s sudden dismissal is now part of a fire that threatens to burn down the GOP’s House majority next year. The firing came one day after Sally Yates, the former acting Attorney General, told the Senate she warned the White House Counsel about former National Security Adviser Flynn’s ties to Russia weeks before he was fired. Yates, too, was fired by Trump.
Regardless of your views on Williams, he seems to have gotten it right here.
