Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, April 15, 2018

Republican lawmaker also sees no basis for firing deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein. Conservative lawmaker Trey Gowdy defended Robert Mueller on Sunday, saying the Russia special counsel was right to refer the case of Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen to federal prosecutors in New York. Since announcing a few weeks ago that he wouldn't run for re-election, Gowdy (R-SC) increasingly has been speaking against his previously redder-than-red type. A few weeks ago, he admonished President Donald Trump's attorney John Dowd on the Fox News Sunday program, saying, "If you have an innocent client, Mr. Dowd, act like it." Earlier this month, he confessed to CNN that he felt he hasn't "been good in Congress," and that the U.S. legislature is too mired in partisan wrangling to be effective -- an explanation of why he has decided to leave the body.

Gowdy is a former fed prosecutor so a tool of the deep state. He refuses to call out Comey or McCabe despite the obvious wrong doing. Guy is a tool. Good riddance.

You may want to lay off the Infowars, Fox News, and Brietbart for awhile, as you are becoming unhinged. When your use the phrases "deep state" and "fake news" you really do expose your level of idiocy, and how gullible you really are.

Referring it takes away the benefits of firing Mueller and the advantage of granting pardons. I applaud the idea.

When you fail to realize that both of these things actually exist, you show how idiotic you really are. Probably why the world does not make sense to you and why you have failed so miserably at life to this point. You can change that, but you have to be willing to change.

Fake news - Propaganda made by Russian agents to elect Trump that looks like legitimate news sources.
Deep state - Right wing authoritarian LEO and military members who act to expand their budgets and the control their organizations have over citizens (See Eisenhower)

Thanks for proving my point without realizing it.

My life could be worse, I could be an alt-right snowflake like you and believe every lie from Infowars and Fox News, living in your mother's basement because You're too lazy to work, and then blame your pathetic life on others.

So literally EVERYONE is a tool of the Deep State if they worked in the Federal Government?

Do you have any idea how many Federal Prosecutors are just low level nothings pushing drug cases?

There is no corporation even 1/100 the size of the Federal government that doesn't have a permanent bureaucracy (i.e., deep state). No large organization can function without an institutional memory. I suppose "some think" we should fire everybody and hire 3 million new people every time we change Presidents.

Doesn't mean the NY prosecutors were right to steamroll attorney client privilege.

It's a terrible precedent. You may soon find yourselves dismayed. It will be too late.

Such privilege exists not in furtherance of a crime. I'm looking forward to the list of Cohen's (and Trump's) crimes much more than his list of clients.

nothing is more dismaying than the rights convenient 180 on the justice department

Bill Clinton's lawyer certainly was furthering crimes when he negotiated the $850k payout to Paula Jones.

Slope is slippery. Gotta watch your step now.

"Bill Clinton's lawyer certainly was furthering crimes when he negotiated the $850k payout to Paula Jones."

Ah yes the knee-jerk Clinton deflection.

Nope. He wasn't. Sorry.

If he had paid it illegally using campaign cash or wire fraud, then yes. But that didn't happen.

With Cohen, it did happen.

Again, welcome to the real world where we have things like Facts. You should try them sometime.

"Deep State" certainly does exist -- in the minds of Conspiracy Theorists.

"Faux News" exists, too. It's channel 360 on DirecTV. Currently, that's where Hannity hides -- along with "Deep State."
