First Family

“As I found myself thrust into the Trump orbit, I once again was having flashbacks to my earlier career as a prosecutor against the mob.” -James Comey


When the Commander

in Chief is a Boss, you can

bet on it.


I know because I read

a history book.


The criminal I am speaking of

does not read. It doesn’t

matter. He knows what every

mobster knows. That a crime

can be concealed by a bigger

crime.


War -- the ultimate

cover-up.
