    Wow; thank you for filling in the blanks. Sava gave an excellent presser, but that solely do to the generosity of Scalise’s wife to permit him/MedStar latitude of detail.

    I have been following the Seth Rich murder insofar as hardcore double-SOURCED facts have been obtainable.

    Seth’s murder and the subsequent follow-up details stink like hell. I am particularly disturbed that his parents seemed to be managed by DNC crisis operatives.

    Would it not be possible for his parents, like Scalise’s wife (who understandably released in part), to permit MedStar to release all medical records to the press?

    Why wouldn’t they? What possible motive do they have to not release all medical records of their son in detail?

    tyvm for that explanation. Most people-—me included-—that have surgery think of the surgery and the surgeon.

    Now I have a new concern ;) ...but it is always good to be equipped with facts.

    Thanks again.

    Indeed, excellent presser.

    I have the greatest respect for first responders and trauma teams at Level I facilities. They are simply the best! God has guided the hands of these fine physicians, nurses, technicians without a doubt! Prayers for all involved continue
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~

    ditto every word!

    Considering Dr Sava’s account of Scalise’s condition when he arrived at MedStar, to report the good news that he was able is nothing short of stunning.

    BTW: he also said the care of Scalise by the anesthesiologist was “truly amazing” and contributed greatly to his present condition.

    I would have liked to have known more of that, but no one asked a follow-up question on that part of his statement.

    “My next big worry would be infection.”

    That is exactly what Dr Sava said. Also said length of time in hospital raises risk of infection for all patients, and he expects Scalise will be in hospital for several more weeks.

    “I thought it sounded quite valid, with names/dates/places that all seemed to match up. It was late, when I watched it, so I plan to do so, again, with morning coffee ;-) “
    ~~~~~~~~

    me too...perhaps over the weekend. Wish I had the time to post this as a separate thread with a text timeline.

    I assume the facts are correct. However, imo, the conclusions can best be inferred by a timeline of the facts.

    In the past, when I had time to do FR research, a timeline of whatever was my best friend. So often, we don’t know what is important until a future date, and then, in retrospect, all the puzzle pieces start to fall into alignment.

    Now we know why Comey came out and gave his press conference clearing Hillary when that’s something only the Justice Department can actually do - he was providing cover to Lynch. Had she made the announcement it would have looked really bad given that she had just had a secret meeting with Bill Clinton.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~
    yep...

    BTW, I’m still evaluating, but a Freeper posted this video. Have you (circlecity, caww, maggief) watched this?? Thoughts?:

    “Attorney General Lynch instructed James Comey to call the investigation into Hillary Clinton a ‘MATTER’ and not an investigation.”

    That’s a lot more of a veiled request to lay off of her than saying Trump came close to saying about Flynn.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I would call that a direct order...and Lynch explicitly gave it twice in the same conversation.

    Comey said he was troubled by it because her directive to him aligned DOJ wording with Clinton campaign wording, and he knew it was a “criminal investigation” and not “a matter”

    Nevertheless, he followed her directive because he didn’t consider the wording to be “a hill to die on. “

    He further justified his obedience to Lynch by the end results (can’t recall his exact words)...but essentially-—turned out to be no big deal.

    I would call him a coward, but his “cowardice” always seems to advantage one particular team.

    “If he did not have presence of mind to report Trump, his firing more than justified.”

    True, Comey can’t have it both ways...and he had more than a day to collect his mind and report Trump.

    His entire testimony is disingenuous... Comey is both slick and slimy.

    The whiny “boy scout” is taking the facts and reinterpreting them into a self-serving (and Dem-serving) narrative; i.e., into the collective, forward-looking agenda intended to hang Trump as best he can contribute to the effort.

    “Wishy washy testimony.....full of “ I don’t remeber’s”....”I could be wrongs”....”

    Could be because he frequently feels compelled to read Trump’s mind.

    “Comey is all about the feels.”

    Laura Ingraham has been making the same point whenever she talks about Comey.

    Also calls him “prissy” and a “drama queen.”

    His released statement (based on his chronological contemporaneous notes) reads like notes for a draft of his memoir.

    LOL... added value!

    A lot of conservatives are getting nervous.

    This political cartoon about sums it up and it's not to be shrugged off.

    No matter what a candidate thinks or knows or proposes, the view is different in the Oval Office.

    I'm giving Trump more time to work out his promises to his conservative base.

    Real News: ALIPAC Revokes Trump Endorsement Due To Betrayal on Immigration Promises

    For National Release

    May 2, 2017

    Contact: Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) | WilliamG@alipac.us | (919) 787-6009

    After months of activism efforts to encourage President Trump to honor his campaign promises, Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is regretfully announcing the revocation of the organization’s endorsement of Donald Trump originally issued February 29, 2016.

    ALIPAC’s supporters have endorsed, contributed to, volunteered for, and attended events and rallies to help Trump in response to his promises to enforce all existing immigration and border laws while ending Obama’s DACA Amnesty and building a wall on our southern border.

    While Trump promised these things, he quickly caved and retreated on budget negotiations with Congress on funding for the wall this week, while continuing Obama’s overtly unconstitutional DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) Amnesty for illegal immigrants! Trump is sending a message that most illegal aliens have nothing to fear from federal law enforcement and that implementation of US law will be based on his personal feelings instead of the Rule of Law. Trump has also issued an executive order setting dangerous refugee resettlement programs he promised to end at 62,000 imported per year, which is the same average Obama brought in during his terms. ALIPAC has also recently discovered Trump administration spokeswoman and Bush family ally Helen Aguirre Ferre promising future amnesty to illegal aliens on KJZZ radio! (Listen)

    “We were so hopeful that Donald Trump would be a man of his word because the campaign promises he made to Americans were the things America needs to do to survive and thrive, but unfortunately, Trump has made it clear he cannot be trusted on his most powerful campaign issue of stopping illegal immigration and amnesty,” declared William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “Our organization’s supporters have been fighting against illegal immigration and Amnesty for many years, and they say it is time for us to end our endorsement of Trump because close inspection of his actual immigration policies show he is similar to Bush and Obama on Amnesty for illegal immigrants.”

    ALIPAC is America’s only Political Action Committee focused on stopping and reversing illegal immigration and amnesty through the adequate enforcement of the nation’s existing immigration laws which are the product of our elections and Congressional votes on legislation.

    Anticipating a great deal of consternation, disappointment, and confusion within the ranks of Trump’s base supporters in reaction to ALIPAC’s dropped endorsement, William Gheen is also releasing an open letter further explaining the PAC’s decision. (VIEW LETTER)

    “Our organization ALIPAC will not support any elected official who violates the Constitution, their campaign promises, and their oath of office as Trump is doing by his continuation of DACA Amnesty, which Obama created out of thin air with memos,” said Gheen. “Trump promised to end DACA on his first day with a simple memo canceling Obama’s illegal directives. This was the most important thing Trump could have done to restore Constitutional governance in America, but instead he is choosing the path of dictatorship Obama did.”

    ALIPAC is also dropping the endorsement for Trump because Trump has placed numerous illegal alien amnesty backers into his cabinet and staff such as Reince Priebus, Alexander Acosta, Kellyanne Conway, John Kelly, Rick Perry, Rex Tillerson, Elaine Chao, Kevin Hassett, and Helen Aguirre Ferre, while anti-Amnesty figures such as Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, and author Ann Coulter have all been left in the cold.

    Trump endorsed pro-Amnesty lawmakers Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), and Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) during the GOP primaries of 2016 while each was being challenged by candidates endorsed by ALIPAC due to their promise to oppose amnesty for illegals.

    ALIPAC recently discovered that Bush administration transplant and amnesty backer Helen Aguirre Ferre, who has been hired as Trump’s White House Director of Media Affairs, has been telling audiences that the White House is looking forward with Congress to pushing bipartisan immigration reform amnesty for illegals, but right now, the federal government will focus on the first step of enforcement. In an interview on Phoenix Arizona’s KJZZ radio, Trump spokeswoman Helen Aguirre Ferre said “We do look forward to working with Congress, in a bipartisan faction, to enact meaningful immigration reform, but we begin by securing our border. That’s step one...” (LISTEN TO INTERVIEW AT 10:55 mark)

    Donald Trump never campaigned on passing any new immigration legislation or “immigration reform.” This “Secure the borders first” language is the same Americans have heard from those in Congress pushing Amnesty for the last 4 years.
