For John, BLUF: There will always be corruption. How much is acceptable? Nothing to see here; just move along.
From PJ Media, by Mr Roger L Simon, 16 March 2018.
Here is the lede plus one:
Friday's firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, based on a report from the Office of Professional Responsibility, is only the beginning of what is likely to be the most explosive series of revelations in American history.Maybe Roger Simon is right, but maybe the Swamp will protect all those people named above. Only time will tell. That said, since we didn't really get a fire break with Mr Andrew McCabe, perhaps the fire needs to consume more territory before we can get it under control. At the end of the day it is about cleansing and strengthening the Republic.
Forget Watergate. It will be the distant past once the Inspector General's reports—there apparently will be more than one—start to come out. This will be the "Gate of Gates."
From the FBI and across the intelligence agencies an astonishing number of people are going to find themselves accused, one can safely predict at this point, of some atrocious behavior in a free republic. And it will not just be the small change of Peter Strzok (the dimwitted director of counter-intelligence) and his gal pal Lisa Page. It will include—on one level or another—James Comey, Loretta Lynch, John Brennan, James Clapper, Susan Rice and, almost inevitably, Barack Obama, not to mention others known and unknown.
Personally, I wish he had gone quietly, with his pension in tact, but with the word out to others that it was time to stand down. Didn't seem to happen.
