So Friday is the winter solstice. The darkest day or D-Day.
Friday marks the day of the year when it goes dark to light as daytime begins to get longer.
A report was issued on Thursday that stated Acting AG Matt Whitaker would not have to recuse himself in overseeing Special Counsel James Comey and his “Russian Collusion” saga.
More importantly for today, Whitaker can also do what President Trump requested three months ago and release the declassified FISA warrants.
While many items seem to be aligned for a news drop on Friday, as a seasoned news pro dropping important information today would not be very impactful since most Americans have already checked out for the Christmas holiday.
No today is the day you drop news in the late afternoon that you don’t want Americans to notice.
So we will just have to wait for a possible announcement on a timeline for the release of the FISA information.
Jan. 2, 2019 seems to be the earliest we could see it. After nearly 10 days of holiday, Americans would come back to work and some key executive orders would also be activated at that time. It also would be a day before new House members take office.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family.
It was revealed Thursday that the House Judiciary committee has subpoenaed ex-FBI Director James Comey and President Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch to testify early next month
It was confirmed that Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the outgoing Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee will have Comey and Lynch testifying before the committee on Dec. 3 and Dec 4 respectfully. Lynch had no response to the subpoena news.
Lynch will be asked how her office approved the spying of a presidential candidate and president-elect using dubious partisan evidence presented to the FISA court. She could also be grilled on her “surprise” tarmac meeting in Phoenix with former President Bill Clinton.
Comey, who was fired by President Trump in May 2017 took an interesting tack on Tweeter on Thursday:
Happy Thanksgiving. Got a subpoena from House Republicans. I’m still happy to sit in the light and answer all questions. But I will resist a “closed door” thing because I’ve seen enough of their selective leaking and distortion. Let’s have a hearing and invite everyone to see.
The ex-FBI chief knows that if he “resists a closed-door” hearing, the questioning will be far more pedestrian since investigators will not be able to cite classified information in the hearing. Comey’s lawyer said he would sue if compelled to testify behind close doors.
It has little to do with “sitting in the light” and everything to do with keeping secrets in the dark.
“Dark to light” is what all these investigations are about, so it’s very interesting Comey would use that imagery.
