Obama Transition Team Reports That Obama Transition Team Did Nothing Wrong

News

The Obama camp's internal investigation report about its contact with Blaggy's office regarding the "fuckin' valuable" Senate seat "thing" has beenreleased. Written by Obama's fancy lawyer, Greg Craig, the report comes in at a brisk 4.5 pages. No one on the Obama team, according to the Obama team report, ever discussed any sort of quid pro quo with Blaggy.


Rahm Emanuel talked to Blaggy "once or twice," to pass on some of Obama's preferences, and to chief of staff John Harris four times. Valerie Jarrett talked to some of these clowns but stopped eventually, because who wants to talk to clowns. David Axelrod had no conversations. And that time he was on teevee saying that Obama had been in touch with the governor regarding the Senate seat? Well, he was high or something.

Unlike the FBI crew that pulled in Blaggy, Greg Craig is not a very comical writer of official reports. This is the only vaguely amusing thing in the report:

Ms. Jarrett recalls that [Illinois SEIU head Tom] Balanoff also told her that the Governor had raised with him the question of whether the Governor might be considered as a possible candidate to head up the Department of Health and Human Services in the new administration. Mr. Balanoff told Ms. Jarrett that he told the Governor that it would never happen. Jarrett concurred.

Ha ha, because he sucks.

What did we say this morning? Something about how "They want a war with Iran," and "Please do not listen to news reports about Trump telling his people to cool their jets with the Iran talk, because they want a war with Iran, and all they are looking for is their trigger"?

News came out early this morning that Iran shot down a US drone in the Strait of Hormuz, outside Iranian waters. Let's see what our president and his war-bonering GOP shitmouths in Congress have had to say about that:

Great. Just great. So what's happening now?

Awesome. Just splendid. Trump is having a cuddle party today with John Bolton (who's had a hard-on to bomb Iran since the Bush administration); Mike Pompeo (who's been making the rounds lying and saying Iran and al Qaeda are best friends, thus implying that it's very legal and very cool for Trump to strike Iran without congressional authorization, based on the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) Congress voted for five days after 9/11); and Patrick Shanahan, the outgoing acting Defense secretary, who will make way for another acting Defense secretary, because who needs real Defense secretaries? (The new guy, Mark Esper, is part of the meeting too.) And as Senator Schatz points out above, Trump is emotionally unstable and doesn't know dick about foreign policy, so it's just great that he's having an emergency meeting with these unhinged hawks about this right now.

Tell us what this all means, unhinged hawk Lindsey Graham!
