This article, written by Slate’s Leon Neyfakh, apparently shows that Mr. Neyfakh can’t entertain alternate theories.

In the article, Neyfakh insists that Jeff Sessions is lying because he said that the reason why he recommended Jim Comey’s firing was because he was “disgusted by Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.” Neyfakh insists that that’s a lie because President Trump said his reason for firing Mr. Comey was because “When I decided to just do it,” Trump told Holt, “I said to myself, I said, ‘You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story—it’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won.’”

Apparently, it hasn’t dawned on Mr. Neyfakh that both statements could be true. I know with certainty that it’s possible that Jeff Sessions wanted to terminate Jim Comey because he mishandled the HRC email investigation, aka HRC “matter.” I’m equally certain that President Trump might’ve terminated Mr. Comey over the fake Russia scandal.

Later, Neyfakh wrote this:

He also said Comey had overstepped his authority as FBI director when he asserted that “no reasonable prosecutor” would pursue charges against her based on the evidence available. “It was a stunning development … a thunderous thing,” Sessions said, by way of explaining why he “had come to the conclusion that a fresh start was appropriate.”

Sessions is right. Comey overstepped his authority by making decisions traditionally left to the AG. That offense alone is grounds for immediate termination.

Yesterday, Sen. Wyden challenged Gen. Sessions. That was a mistake:

Suffice it to say that Sen. Wyden didn’t win that exchange.

    I read that Pence is lawyered up now.

    Jarad has Jamie Gorelick, proving what? A Clinton insider during Bubba time; and a rubber stamp on the 9/11 Commission. An interesting choice on lawyering up for Jarad.

    Kushner’s given name is spelled Jared, not Jarad.
