Men must turn square corners when they deal with the Government. Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
The more you think about James Comey's testimony on Thursday one thing is crystal clear - the man, despite his (self-cited) saintly upbringing, is a criminal.
He said he leaked his notes about private conversation with President Trump to media, through a lawyer friend at Columbia, because he felt to protect himself the information needed to be in the "public square."
He did not trust President Trump.
But he trusted Loretta Lynch, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama?
Public square is an interesting term.
It's verso makes it so.
As in not hip. Not cool.
The public that detested (cool and hip) President Obama and his administration and (not square) Hillary Clinton and her campaign but likes President Trump is, by left sentiments, square (though their language is far more colorful).
Thus making morals, principles, and ethics square.
That being an angle difficult to figure no matter how hard you try. Right?
Mr. Comey indeed dumped his (Trump) notes into the public square. But with his testimony how does he square (with the) public what now, by any reasonable conclusion, is his criminal conduct while Director, FBI?
He, through sworn testimony - directly and by logical deduction, confirmed he compromised his oath of office and duties. Repeatedly. And not by innocent missteps.
Mr. Holmes is correct - men must turn square corners when they deal with the Government. And so, too, men and women who serve in Government must turn square corners. That's the (Constitutional) deal.
Ergo this member of the public square has a square public question for President Trump.
Hear Ye Hear Ye!
"President Trump, Sir, of our Oval Office, when are you going to order investigations into James Comey, Loretta Lynch, and Barack Obama (and root out others) - all parties of (more than) interest to high crimes leading up to the election?"
Time, past time, to square this circle of public service criminals and indeed settle it in the public square - where such folk, of yesteryear, (convicted of treason) were hanged.
