Now "Lying" Is A Problem?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JUNE 12, 2017

         FORMER FBI DIRECOR JAMES COMEY CLAIMS PRESIDENT TRUMP LIED TO HIM AND THIS MAKES HEADLINES. IF LYING WERE AN INDICTABLE OFFENSE WE WOULD NEVER HAVE A PRESIDENT, OR A CONGRESS. ALL POLITICIANS LIE. SEE BARACK OBAMA “IF YOU LIKE YOUR DOCTOR YOU CAN KEEP YOUR DOCTOR” AND THE RED LINE IN SYRIA AND FAST AND FURIOUS AND BENGHAZI. I COULD GO ON. HOW ABOUT BILL CLINTON AND HIS LIES? SO MANY OTHERS.

         DO I WISH THE PRESIDENT WOULD CONFORM JUST A LITTLE TO HISTORICAL PRECEDENT FOR PRESIDENTIAL BEHAVIOR. I DO. BUT FOR ME THE GREATER GOAL IS TO CHANGE AND REIGN-IN GOVERNMENT. THE PRESIDENT HAS JUST SENT THE NAMES OF 11 SOLID CONSERVATIVE JUDGES TO THE SENATE FOR CONFIRMATION. HE WANTS TO REPLACE OBAMACARE AND REFORM THE TAX CODE IF TIMID CONGRESS WILL DO IT.

         THE LEFT HAS NOTHING AND THAT’S WHY THEY ARE TRYING TO BRING THE PRESIDENT DOWN WITH CHARGES THAT SO FAR ARE NOT ILLEGAL AND CERTAINLY NOT IMPEACHABLE, WHICH WON’T HAPPEN ANYWAY WITH A REPUBLICAN CONGRESS. THE MEDIA – THE MOTHER OF ALL LIARS – ARE IN BED WITH THEM. AND THAT ‘S NO LIE. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
