PINK HAT ALERT: Putin Offers James Comey Political Asylum
You have to love how Putin keeps his hand on the “pink hats” of the Left.
In a move surely made to poke fun at the Left Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday offered to give political asylum to former FBI Director James Comey.
“If Comey will be under the threat of political persecution, we are ready to accept him here,” Putin said at a press conference, according to Russian state media outlet TASS.
Some say this move was to get under the skin of President Trump. I disagree.
I believe this move was meant to get under the skin of leftists in America. For they accuse the Russians of manipulating the 2016 elections, knowing that’s simply not true.
Apparently, the Comey testimony precipitated the action by Putin.
Recall Comey testified that Trump pressured him to “let go” of the FBI investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. After Comey’s firing by President Trump, he acknowledged that he was butt-hurt. Thus, he leaked his personal memos about his conversations with Trump to the media.
Rightfully, President Trump and sane America noted the breach of national security, and attacked Comey’s credibility. For all we know Comey is one of the main leakers we’ve been attempting to identify.
Putin also noted the breach, and compared Comey’s decision to leak details of conversations with Trump to the actions of Edward Snowden. Recall, Snowden leaked information from the National Security Agency, and received asylum by Russia where he now resides there.
“This is strange. How then is the director of the FBI any different from Snowden? He is not a head of the special services, but a human rights activist.”
Put another way, Putin realizes that Comey is more of a pansy than Snowden.
His revelations about former Attorney General Loretta Lynch could get him killed.
It should be noted that Putin hasn’t offered Lynch asylum. Given what the Clintons do to people who have dirt on them, I’d suggest Lynch’s husband get a big fat insurance policy on her with a double-indemnity clause.
I like that American politics interest Putin so much. It means we’re relevant.
I assure you the average American has little to no interest in Russian politics or anything else, except their vodka and maybe Russian brides.
Putin sees these forays into the political mainstream as a way to maintain power in Russia. He can say to his comrades,
“They fear me and Mother Russia.”
Perhaps Obama feared Putin. Trump doesn’t.
