Quote for the Day

 “That’s the whole point that we’re supposed to have the rule of law. It ain’t the rule of law when they kick in your door at three in the morning and you’re faced with armed men and you have no reason to be told you’re going to have that kind of treatment. That’s Stalin. That’s the gestapo in Germany. That shouldn’t be the American FBI.”

Newt “Gasbag” Gingrich on Fox & Friends

Red wonders if that scumbag Nazi Mueller will soon be hauling people off to concentration camps or the American Gulag and summarily executing them.  Maybe Newt is afraid that he will start with him and Steve “the Stupidest Man Ever Allowed on TV” Doocy.  Gingrich knows Trump is soiling his big-leg pants over the entirely legal Cohen seizure and he will stop at nothing to defame those who would hold Trump and his band of crooks accountable in a desperate attempt to deflect blame.

Somehow Red just doesn’t recall Stalin or the Gestapo going through the rather strict process of getting a search warrant based on probable cause under the 4th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.  The reason you get a search warrant is because you have enough of a quantum of evidence to establish that a crime has been committed.  And the reason for surprise in executing a warrant is because you have reason to believe that the target will otherwise destroy evidence.  Both Manafort and Cohen have associated themselves with utter scum and have a track record of unethical behavior.  It doesn’t strain credulity to see either of them destroying evidence.

For draft-dodger, serial philanderer, for sale to the highest bidder, bloviator Newt to attack a man who served his country honorably in Vietnam and has dedicated his life to the rule of law and fighting crime shows exactly how desperate the Trumpians are at this point.  When you have absolutely nothing left you play the Nazi card.  To quote Jim Hightower, “You have to watch out for Newt. He’s a slimy little lizard.”
