We have possibly an action-packed week coming up with congressional testimony from former Obama DOJ chief Loretta Lynch on Monday and ex-FBI James Comey on Tuesday.
On Wednesday US Attorney John Huber is slated to give his update to Congress on his probe into the Clinton Foundation.
Now there is plenty of speculation over the “Locked & (who is) Loaded” comment as to Lynch being ready to speak on the Obama administration’s involvement on spying on the Trump campaign and after the election. Under threat of releasing the declassified FISA documents will move Lynch to be truthful in order not to perjure herself.
I’ll reserve my enthusiasm for this since I have seen this build up before only to be disappointed by the actual event. It could be that Sunday night both or one could decline the congressional invitation to testify and let the committees deal with that in the next few days remaining in Republican-controlled House.
Shutting down the government by not passing the spending bill will just be used as a time suck to slow or stop any House inquiries will be delayed (cancelled) as lawmakers scramble to get bill passed so they can get out of Washington for holidays.
Being vigilant during December will probably have little to do with keeping up with actions and more to do with staying the course despite nothing really coming from the anticipated actions.
Maybe I’m too jaded at this point, but I would like see a boom, boom. I only need two and they can be lower case.
