I have denounced FBI Director James Comey’s interference in the election since the day it happened. After Trump won the Electoral College, Hillary Clinton, and then Harry Reid, claimed that the win was directly aided by the intentional action of Comey. Now Trump’s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, has offered his opinion as well.
First of all, let me make it completely clear that I do not make excuses for myself or anyone else. I am simply stating the facts. When Comey announced new investigations into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server eleven days before the election, she had a huge lead in the polls. After Comey took his un-precidented action, they were virtually tied.
“With 11 days to go in this election cycle, something amazing happened. The FBI director, James Comey, came out on a Friday and said they may be reopening the investigation into ‘crooked’ Hillary Clinton’s emails,” Lewandowski said.
“What that did,” he went on, “was remind people that there are two different rules in Washington ― those of the elites, for the privileged, and those for everybody else.”
So, Donald Trump was right; the election was rigged. With votes still being counted, as of today, Hillary Clinton has 1.4 million more votes than Trump. Estimates are that when the tally is complete, Hillary will have won the popular vote by two million. The people elected Hillary; a rigged and corrupt system gifted the presidency to Trump.
The Electoral College is the reason we have “red and blue states.” The Electoral College is the reason millions of votes do not count, and the worst candidate in history is now the president-elect. He will accumulate the worst of our political failures; a group of mostly old white men who believe in white supremacy, and fascism.
As spin doctor and anti-feminist Kellyanne Conway and others continue to denounce the thousands of protesters filling our nation’s streets, they continue to reject democracy and patriotism. Patriotism requires dissent, and a true patriot is not loyal to a man who fails to represent all of the American people, and is openly racist and bigoted. In addition, a man whose next residence should be a prison cell for criminal action, and sexual assault, should not be allowed to infest the White House.
Trump will never be my president, and he should not be yours. If he is allowed to lead our nation, all previous 43 men who were legally our presidents are forever tarnished. (Grover Cleveland was both our 22nd and 24th president). There will be less respect and loyalty from the American people.
Those who constantly denounced President Obama lacked any basis for their racist attacks; Trump is a different story.
What Comey did has never been fully criticized by the media. He changed the entire outcome of the election; and it now appears that he did so intentionally.
Today there is a suggestion that Trump knew of Comey’s action before it occurred. If this is true, Trump did rig the election. This immoral fact, mixed with the interference of Russian President, Vladimir Putin, and the “free pass” given to Donald Trump by a failed media, Trump’s victory is hollow.
The people should elect the president; and that would be Hillary, not “Trumpenstein.”
