OPINION

Another one


Another associate of the president of the United States was found guilty of crimes in federal court last Friday. A jury found Roger Stone guilty on all seven counts, including obstruction, witness tampering, and making false statements to the United States Congress. Here’s how President Trump reacted: 

So they now convict Roger Stone of lying and want to jail him for many years to come. Well, what about Crooked Hillary, Comey, Strzok, Page, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Shifty Schiff, Ohr & Nellie, Steele & all of the others, including even Mueller himself? Didn’t they lie?........A double standard like never seen before in the history of our Country? 

At the same time, Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch was testifying in the impeachment inquiry into the president. Here’s how the president, who tells us he’s too busy to watch, reacted: 

Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad. She started off in Somalia, how did that go? Then fast forward to Ukraine, where the new Ukrainian President spoke unfavorably about her in my second phone call with him. It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors.They call it “serving at the pleasure of the President.” The U.S. now has a very strong and powerful foreign policy, much different than proceeding administrations. It is called, quite simply, America First! With all of that, however, I have done FAR more for Ukraine than O. 

For the record, those two tweets from the nation’s chief executive are beneath the dignity of the office, sadly childish, and, arguably an attempt to pervert the course of justice and intimidate a witness. 

For the record, it’s preceding, not proceeding. 

For the record, it’s Ambassador Yovanovitch, not just Marie. 

For the record, it’s former President Barack Obama, and not O. The 44th president earned that much respect by not having over half a dozen of his close associates become convicted felons while in office.
