Comey's leak got Mueller appointed special counsel. Comey will work behind scenes w/ him to steer investigation. Be warned. I know both.And:
If you think you've seen the last of #Comey, think again.Julius Caesar, Hamlet, King Leer, Richard III, everything is Shakespeare around here lately.
Hamlet is a five-act play.
We're only in Act Two.
Thomas Paine has an interesting Twitter feed loaded with all kinds of important reports. The Twitter site has a banner reading True Pundit. So apparently the Twitter feed is connected with the website.
The truepundit website adds:
“The immunity is a done deal,” a Justice Department source said. “Mueller can do whatever he wants. We (Justice) have no say but after many years working criminal cases I know Comey has been given immunity. You can tell by the way he is acting now and the fact that Mueller has kept us in the dark about his investigation.”The writer(s) there continue:
As Special Counsel, by law Mueller is permitted to strike immunity agreements without having to get approval for the Attorney General of anyone at Justice. Also he is not obligated as Special Counsel to inform Justice about who is under immunity.
It’s no secret Comey and Mueller are close friends, having worked together at Justice for years alongside Eric Holder. Comey has described Mueller, who also served as FBI director, as his one-time mentor. If someone in Congress cared enough to do something about it, there are no shortages of conflicts of interests at play here in what is supposed to be an impartial investigation. In fact, it’s somewhat staggering.I've lifted too much. The rest is equally

For protracted miserable reading there's more on the subject of Washington kabuki theater for losing and lost souls.

And a lot more, a few of the results are phrased in interrogative construction, being journalistically cautious, while our preference is incautious declarative no matter how outrageous.

So how about that, Kids? Isn't this fun? A giant show on a national scale, just for us. By the worst ugliest actors available and terribly expensive besides. Still, our nation, our compatriots demand it. Demand it to the extreme point that anti-gun activists actually die shooting their opponents with illegal firearms to drive their political compulsions. This investigative theater is their thing. It's what they do. I read that in a John le Carré novel. He stated through one of his Russian characters, "Americans investigate each other continuously. It's what they do." I was very young when I read that and I found the plain simple fact provided by a foreigner rather insightful at the time. But not now.
