  • ENOUGH!

    Yo Rosenstein; he was fired because you and the communist party demanded he be fired. The shambles of what is left of the left’s one time Democratic party demanded he be fired and hung out to dry. And now you have faux aneurysms over getting exactly what you wanted … and exactly what Comey deserved? Bullshit. You shouted from the rooftops that he colluded with Trump’s campaign to help trump win by releasing all the sordid details of Killary’s mishandling of Top Secret, Secret and Confidential US secret materials on her illegal server. Karma IS a bitch; speaking of bitches … Killary’s got to be sweating big time now that her protector has been fired. Now the law can be applied. You will look good in black and white striped pants suits, killary.
