    Comey firing was worst mistake in 'modern political history

    Bannon: Comey firing was worst mistake in 'modern political history' - CNNPolitics

    "I don't think there's any doubt that if James Comey had not been fired, we would not have a special counsel, yes," he said. "We would not have the Mueller investigation. We would not have the Mueller investigation and the breadth that clearly Mr. Mueller is going for."
    XVI.8: Confucius said, "There are three things of which the superior man stand in awe. He stands in awe of the ordinances of Heaven. He stands in awe of great men. He stands in awe of the words of the sages. The mean man does not know the ordinances of Heaven, and consequently does not stand in awe of them. He is disrespectful to great men. He makes sport of the words of the sages."

    Maybe, but in fairness, if I fired someone I'd expect them to refer to all of my decisions as terrible mistakes too.

    It seems to me that the Mueller investigation will only have those dire consequences (worst mistake in modern political history ) if it results in substantial findings. So is Bannon indicating that Mueller is going to find something big?

    Maybe so, Bannon is good at being tight lipped.

    The biggest political mistake in modern history is voting for Trump. Firing Comey was just par of the course after that.

    Thumbs down Comey is dirty

    On the contrary: firing Comey was a solidly good politically and legal move on President Trump's part. Comey was doing very odd things that justified his termination, such as:

    (1) Comey was secretly leaking information to the press, instead of forwarding it to proper governmental investigators. That's not the way the head of the FBI is supposed to investigate criminal allegations. There is not one police academy in the United States that teaches that methodology, especially for the head of the FBI.

    (2) Comey also drafted his exoneration letter to clear Hillary Rodham Clinton of all allegations of criminal activity, prior to interviewing her and prior to interviewing key witnesses. That is shoddy political showboating that has no place in law enforcement . At a minimum, the suspect and witnesses should be interviewed, prior to announcing the conclusion of a case.

    It appears that Comey is dirty.

    ...which is exactly what happened. Check the timing on these events.

    Funniest things happen when previously rational and fair Trump supporter tries to pretend he's still rational and fair. Keep it up.

    Stanislav, as a Ukrainian-Russian foreigner who does not reside in the United States, are you seeking a source for your own edification? Or are you asking for more information so more Americans can read and be informed about it? Please advise.

    Because I suspect you misinterpret that source, that's why. Do you have one?
    Otherwise, yeah, keep bringing the debate to my background. It shows how many good arguments you actually have.

    Stanislav, you are a foreigner who lives outside the United States -- and you are Ukrainian-Russian -- which makes your constant criticism of the United States president on par with axis leaders in Iran, North Korea and other rogue nations. Why do you agree with their criticism of the U.S. president?

    Wow.

    Your Fuehrer is not the United States. He's a sexual predator con artist endorsed by the KKK. why do you agree with KKK's blind support of this President?

    Stanislav, God Himself put President Donald J. Trump into office. When you resist President Trump, you resist God Himself. As a Ukrainian-Russian foreigner, your resistance is futile. God bless the United States -- and President Trump! And pray it every day!

    In short, he is a cochino (sexual pervert con artist).

    me again, you look so weak every time you bring this up. It simply doesn't relate to whether he's right or wrong.
