FBI

Spies Like Us


cjones05222018

The priorities for the Trump administration and the entire Republican Party are seriously messed up. When the press reports that a White House staffer dissed Senator and Vietnam veteran John McCain by saying, “he’s dying anyway,” the outrage isn’t directed at the staffer, who still has her job, but at the leaker.

Now it’s reported that the FBI may have had an informant following the moles Russia had in the Trump campaign. Is Trump’s outrage directed toward Russia? Of course not. It’s toward the agency that’s trying to protect our nation from interference from a hostile foreign power.

Trump tweeted, “Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI “SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN EMBEDDED INFORMANT.” Andrew McCarthy says, “There’s probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign.” If so, this is bigger than Watergate!”

Trump has to say “Obama’s FBI” so it’ll gin up his base with outrage. But he is right about one thing. If Donald Trump allowed Russian spies into his campaign, it’s bigger than Watergate.

And Trump did allow Russians into his campaign headquarters. When the Russians contacted them claiming they had dirt on Hillary Clinton, did Donald Trump Jr say “no thanks?” Did he report it to the FBI? No. That treasonous trust-fund baby said, “I love it!” If the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia, it’s not for lack of trying.

While the campaign was ongoing, Trump was trying to work out a business deal with Russia. When Trump says he doesn’t have any business with Russia, again, it’s not for lack of trying. And on that issue, he’s probably lying.

While the FBI was secretly following Trump’s Russians around, they announced to the world that they were investigating Hillary Clinton, and then they weren’t, and then they were. The FBI was also leaking information about the investigation into Clinton to Rudy Giuliani, who is now complaining about the bias at the FBI. I’m a cartoonist and even I can’t make this stuff up.

Trump sycophants who parrot his claim of the investigation as a “witch hunt” and “no collusion” don’t stop for a second and ask, but why were there so many people with Russian connections in your campaign? What sort of organization was Trump running that let spies in to sit at the big table with Trump?

Now, Trump, Republicans in Congress, the idiots in conservative media like Breitbart and Sean Hannity, are screaming for the FBI to publicly identify the informant. What happened to protecting sources? Why would they want to give someone up, not just for the conservative base to chew apart, but for Vladimir Putin? People who anger Putin have a tendency to suffer accidents, like falling off buildings and walking face-first into a batch of Russian-made nerve agent.

This is another instance of Republicans putting sycophancy over country. They worship at the altar of a stupid, racist, snake-oil selling conman complicit with Russia, and their love for their deity is stronger than their love for the country.

You know what they say runs downhill. You know who’s on top of that hill. Trump’s leadership has set an example of the corruption rampant throughout his cabinet. His leadership encourages leaks from the White House. And, it was his leadership that invited Russians into his campaign. This is a man who didn’t devote himself entirely to his country while seeking to be its leader, as he was working business deals with Moscow at the same time while also asking for them to hack his opponent’s campaign.

We need to leave the informant alone. Quite frankly, Melania’s been through enough this week.

Billionaire Steals Pension From Career Public Servant


cjones03202018

Donald Trump once asked Andrew McCabe who he voted for. I really hope he didn’t vote for Trump.

After Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, he called then interim director McCabe and yelled at him for allowing Comey to return home from California, where he was at the time of the firing, and allowing him to fly on a government plane. At the end of that conversation, Trump told McCabe, “ask your wife what it’s like to be a loser,” in reference to her losing campaign when she ran for public office.

Donald Trump once cut off health insurance for a sick infant, which was the grandson of his late brother.

Currently, Trump, the president of the United States of America, is trying to collect $20 million from a porn star because she won’t be quiet about sleeping with him.

Friday night, around 10:00 PM, Donald Trump, through his troll Attorney General Jeff Sessions, fired Andrew McCabe hours before his retirement in an effort to prevent him from collecting his pension after 21 years of government service.

In case you can’t tell by this point, Donald Trump is a petty asshole.

Trump has been bullying McCabe for months on Twitter and through the press threatening to fire him.

Trump has been upset that McCabe is a witness for James Comey. Trump’s move to fire McCabe tells the entire Federal Bureau of Investigation that if doing their job crosses Trump, he’ll come after them.

During the presidential debates, Hillary Clinton warned us that Trump would use the presidency and Justice Department to go after his political enemies. Once again, he’s proving her right. Just as she was right about Trump being Putin’s Puppet, she was correct about him acting like a tin-pot dictator of a banana republic.

Trump is also trying to move his case with Stormy Daniels out a state court to a federal court, where he appoints the judges. By the way, this legal move proves Trump was a part of the non-disclosure agreement.

If you’re not angry and afraid at this point, you’re an idiot.

Trump’s supporters say they didn’t want Obama’s socialism. But they’re perfectly fine with authoritarianism. I’m not and Donald Trump needs to go.

Trump’s supporters and sycophants love his court appointments and tax cuts, but will they love what’s left of this nation after he leaves? That is if he leaves. He’s already “joking” about being president for life, or in this case, ruler for life.

McCabe has been on an FBI SWAT team. He investigated the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. He’s worked in the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division and National Security Branch. He deserves better than to be attacked politically by the most self-serving president in our nation’s history. If Donald Trump is petty enough to attack career servants for perceived slights against him, he’ll sacrifice our national security for his personal interest.

Also, on Friday night, retired four-star Army general Barry McCaffrey tweeted, “Reluctantly I have concluded that President Trump is a serious threat to US national security. He is refusing to protect vital US interests from active Russian attacks. It is apparent that he is for some unknown reason under the sway of Mr Putin.”

What the general failed to mention is that Trump is a petty asshole.

Trump’s Message From Parkland


cjones02202018

There are going to be howls from conservatives who find this cartoon tasteless but won’t see anything wrong with Donald Trump using the school shooting in Parkland, Florida to attack the FBI and deflect from his collusion with Russia.

Trump continues to say there’s “no collusion.” If there wasn’t any collusion then why does he feel the need to keep saying it? If this was the Princess Bride, we’d say “I don’t think that word means what you think it means.” Trump has brought much harm to this nation, and as Fezzik would say, he’s done it without much charm.

Republicans criticized Obama for politicizing mass shootings when he argued for gun control. Now, Republicans should criticize Trump for politicizing the Parkland school shooting, which he has done not for the public’s safety, but for his own political and personal ambitions. Trump’s politicization of it could be viewed as a desperate act by a desperate man or as a stupid act by a very stupid, petty, little man.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is not infallible or immune from criticism. They acknowledged they failed to investigate a tip a month before the shooting by Nikolas Cruz, who had semi-automatic weapons and publicly stated a desire to kill. This should be looked into, but politicized as a distraction from Russia and Trump, no.

Trump has decided this is an excellent new deflection from the Russia investigation. After meeting hospital workers in Florida Saturday and posing for a thumbs-up picture, Trump tweeted, “Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign – there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud!”

This new argument is based on a belief that every FBI field office across the nation is investigating Donald Trump’s collusion with Russia. In addition to that crazy belief, Trump is blaming Obama for not doing enough to stop Russia’s meddling in our election.

Trump is incapable of acknowledging a fact, the rest of the nation was already aware of for over a year, without adding a conspiracy to it. I’m waiting for him to blame Obama for Don Jr. inviting Russians to Trump Tower. Meanwhile, Russia is still attacking our nation focused on the midterm elections this year, and Trump hasn’t enacted sanctions against Russia or even held one cabinet-level meeting on their meddling.

Trump said, “They are laughing their asses off in Moscow.” With that, I have to agree. They are laughing their asses off. They elected the least capable person any major party has ever nominated for the United States presidency. Vladimir Putin’s self-control is impressive as any other authoritarian strongman would probably be laughing uncontrollably each time he’s in Trump’s presence.

It’s outrageous that the man with access to the best intelligence sources in the world believes the FBI is incapable of investigating one case at a time. Has he never watched X Files? Out of 35,000 employees, only two of them were investigating UFOs.

It’s disgusting that he uses the deaths of 17 school shooting victims to cover his ass. As for his sycophants, it’s not just a deflection for the Trump/Russia investigation, it’s another opportunity not to talk about gun violence.

Trump has yet to even mention guns in association with the attack on the high school. Trump is a coward, and he won’t mention guns since the NRA spent over $50 million during the 2016 presidential campaign for him and other Republicans, with some of that money coming from Russia.

The school shooting was very convenient for Trump, as he could make a photo-op in Parkland, give a thumbs-up, and then spend the rest of his weekend at his Mar-a-Lago resort, which is nearby. Perhaps he should have spent some time with the survivors of the attack.

The survivors would have told Trump a lot of stuff about guns he doesn’t want to hear, and he tends to avoid those types of rooms. But, it would have presented him with examples of bravery. Knowing Trump, he wouldn’t have recognized any of it.

If nothing else, maybe Trump could learn that when a national tragedy happens, it’s not always all about him.

Defected Deflect


cjones12262017

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump supporter Rudy Giuliani said he knew the FBI planned to review more emails tied to Hillary Clinton before FBI Director James Comey publicly announced that was what they were doing. Basically, he claimed the FBI LEAKED information to the Trump campaign, and he was proud of it.

Giuliani said agents of the bureau were frustrated and outraged with how the investigation into Clinton’s emails was handled. Two days before Comey’s announcement, Rudy teased that Trump’s campaign had a “couple of surprises left.”

Giuliani told Fox & Friends, “I did nothing to get it out, I had no role in it. Did I hear about it? You’re darn right I heard about it, and I can’t even repeat the language that I heard from the former FBI agents.”

Now, the very same FBI that employed those “outraged” agents and had leaked to the Trump campaign is being attacked by Trump, Republicans in Congress, and the sycophants on Fox News. If you listen to these people you’d get the idea the FBI is a bunch of Birkenstock-pussy hat-wearing, Hillary voting, reeking of Patchouli funk bohemians.

Comey’s announcement that the FBI was reopening the case against her, and without revealing that Trump was also under investigation, is largely credited with helping Trump win the election. After he became president, Trump fired Comey for investigating his former National Security Advisor and friend Michael Flynn, his campaign’s ties to Russia, and also for not declaring his loyalty to Trump. There are repercussions for not eating the meatloaf.

Trump has accused the FBI, Robert Mueller, and his entire investigation of being full of partisan Democrats out to get him. He’s attacked the FBI’s Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who is now expected to retire in 2018. He’s accused the Deputy Attorney General, who appointed Mueller, of being a Democrat, even though he’s a Republican who Trump appointed.

Any day now I half expect Trump to accuse his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, who was the first sitting U.S. Senator to endorse Trump, of being a Democrat who supported Hillary Clinton.

Trump’s defense is going on offense. His legal team and Republicans are very afraid of what Mueller will find and present in court…and ultimately to Congress. While they have claimed the investigation is a hoax, a hoax doesn’t produce indictments and guilty pleas, which Muller has done.

Congress is trying to end their investigation, and the Republican in charge of the House’s effort, Devin Nunes, has done everything in his power to manipulate and obstruct it. It’s funny they claim the FBI is biased against Trump while the head of their investigation is a Trump supporter who served on his transition team.

The thing is, people do have political opinions. But, I fully expect professionals to be able to do their job, abide by their oaths, do what’s legal and in the name of justice, no matter what their personal opinions may be of Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. The reason Republicans and Trump sycophants claim that can’t be done is because they can’t do it. Have you ever watched a House hearing on Benghazi? You had plenty of opportunities as there were a lot of them.

There are legitimate concerns that the reason Trump is trying to convince the public that those investigating him are crooked is so he won’t receive a backlash if he fires those investigating him, or he pardons those brought up on charges. At some point, Trump is going to trigger a Constitutional crisis, and he’s working to get away with it. If it goes unchecked, the Republicans will let him. For them it’s not just party over country, it’s Trump over country.

The only reason to continue the attacks on the FBI, the Department of Justice, and Robert Mueller is because the Russia investigation is not a hoax and there will be more charges. The closer the charges get to Donald Trump, the more they’ll attack the good guys.

Right now, keep your eyes on the bad guys. They’re not in the FBI, the Special Counsel’s office, or in the media. They’re in the White House.

But HIS Emails


cjones12212017

When a white cop shoots an unarmed black guy or a black child playing with a toy gun, we’re told it’s disrespectful to criticize the police. Cops work dangerous jobs and their lives are on the line on a daily basis, so how dare you question them. When a jury, prosecutor, or a grand jury lets one of these cops go, we’re told to trust the judicial system and this is how it’s supposed to work. So, don’t question or criticize law enforcement or the judicial system…unless they go after a white billionaire. Then they’re all corrupt Democrats who probably contributed to the Clinton Foundation.

Trump, his sycophants, Republicans in Congress, and the idiots at Fox News are publicly smearing the FBI and Special Counsel, Robert Mueller. They’re painting them as corrupt and engaging in a political witch hunt. Fox News has even called the investigation into Trump’s collusion with Russia a “coup.” I hope for Christmas someone sticks a dictionary into a stocking at Fox News. If there’s only one copy they can pass it around to each other. It won’t see much use.

White House informants (people who work there and secretly hate Trump) report that Trump has accused Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General who appointed and oversees the Special Counsel, is a Democrat. In reality, he’s a Republican though he is from Maryland which probably makes Republicans suspicious.

Trump’s lawyers are also contributing to the propaganda that Robert Mueller, a Vietnam veteran and a Republican whose reputation has never been questioned until now, is a political hack trying to thwart the will of the American people, who praise and worship Donald Trump who has personally sacrificed to do so much for this nation.

I hope Trump’s judicial nominees aren’t an indication of the type of private legal counsel he’s hired that he doesn’t plan to pay for. They’ve told the president the Special Counsel’s investigation will wrap up by January (wrong) and that now Mueller’s office has broken the law by gaining access to the Trump transition team’s emails. Wrong again.

Mueller has been given access to tens of thousands of transition emails, as well as laptops, cellphones, and at least one iPad and other documents related to 13 transition officials. These were provided by the General Services Administration which was storing all the transition material.

Trump’s lawyers are arguing that this stuff doesn’t belong to the public, the GSA was not authorized to release them, and that a portion is covered by various privileges including attorney-client privilege. That’s almost as silly as Trump Jr. arguing his chit-chats between him and his daddy are subject to attorney-client privilege.

The GSA provided office space, computer systems, and emails to the transition team, which it has done for other transition teams in the past. They had an agreement that all the documents would be destroyed (why?) after the transition was complete, but the transition team asked them to archive the material after Congress made document requests last year. After Congress made the requests, destroying them may have been illegal.

However, transition officials signed other agreements that warn them material kept on government servers are subject to monitoring and auditing and there are no expectations of privacy.

None of this has prevented Trump’s team to complain to Congress and the public that Mueller is overreaching. Here’s the thing: If you are arguing a case and you have an issue with how the opposition has gathered evidence, you present an argument to the judge to dismiss the material. Trump’s lawyers will not do that. Why? Because after the judge laughs them out of court then they won’t be able to argue to the public about the travesty and injustice Mueller is hitting them with.

How many times have I written on this blog that conservatives have no sense of irony? Countless! This is another example.

Does no one on the Trump team see the irony and hypocrisy of Donald Trump complaining about investigators looking at his government email? This is the man who screamed “I love WikiLeaks” and publicly asked Russia to hack into Hillary Clinton’s email and release it to the press. You remember that “Russia, if you’re listening” shit.

Trump tells us “many people” are angry over this. Where are these angry people? I’ve heard more people express anger over The Last Jedi than over these transition emails. And, they’re all wrong. Emails ending in “.gov” are not private emails and The Last Jedi was freaking awesome.

Trump also keeps saying there’s no collusion. I’m sure there’s not, other than that time Donald Trump Jr., Jared, and Paul Manafort entertained Russians in Trump Tower, and Jared’s bank deals, and Junior’s coordination with WikiLeaks, and Michael Flynn, and Carter Page, and George Papadopoulos, and….well, you get the picture.

I hope Mueller keeps applying the pressure. I plan to and I’m sure I’ll be joined by the rest of my fellow rebel scum.

Stomp The Yard


cjones12112017

One thing I enjoy bashing my conservative cartooning colleagues over are talking points. They will repeat anything barked at them from Fox News. They’ve always been that way except now, they get their talking points from an illiterate narcissistic racist idiot.

If Trump says there were good people among Nazis, then conservatives start talking about all the good people among the Nazis. If Trump says Antifa is chock-full of terrorists, then they find new reasons to demand arrests of liberals and black people. If Trump deflects by talking about an affair Bill Clinton had in 1998, then let’s talk about 1998 and not about Access Hollywood. If Trump says “fake news,” then they’re accusing the media of printing lies all while they share links to Breitbart. Seriously, when you all follow the same script then there’s not one bit of difference between any of you. How many Hannities do we need?

And, I don’t know who came up with “snowflake,” but it’s ridiculous because conservatives are the whiniest people ever. Old, white, Christian males are not being persecuted. There has never been a war on Christmas.

If Trump says protesting against racism is disrespecting veterans, then they stop watching football. Then, he attacks those who are investigating him and his followers start attacking the FBI.

Wait a minute. How is it disrespectful to our troops to kneel during an anthem, yet these proud defenders of patriotism can attack the men and women who serve in the FBI? Keep in mind, we can’t criticize the police either.

Trump has been bashing the FBI and the Special Counsel’s investigation into his campaign’s collusion with Russia. Trump is turning up the deflection and attacks as Robert Mueller inches closer. There have been arrests, indictments, and now there are reports subpoenas have gone out for Trump’s finances.

An FBI agent was reassigned from the Special Counsel’s office after it was discovered he sent personal text messages critical of Trump to another FBI agent. He was also working the case investigating Hillary Clinton. Republicans are treating this like a smoking gun, though none of them have actually seen the text.

Republicans in Congress and the idiots at Fox News are trying to sow doubt about the integrity and impartiality of the FBI, the Special Counsel’s investigation, and that of Robert Mueller. Those people who express outrage at anything they deem disrespectful of our anthem, the flag, and American troops, show their true patriotism by attacking those who are investigating Russia’s meddling in our presidential election. For them, it’s not just party over country. It’s Trump over country. A foreign adversary has attacked our nation and these “patriots” are covering for the bad guys.

Republican Congressman Robert Goodlatte, of Virginia, said to FBI Director Christopher Wray, “We cannot afford for the FBI — which has traditionally been dubbed the premier law enforcement agency in the world — to become tainted by politicization or the perception of a lack of even-handedness.” Basically, he doesn’t want the FBI to become like a Congressional investigation led by Republicans.

During the campaign, there were questions whether Rudy Giuliani had leaked reports from the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s Email server. Where was Fox News and all these Republicans expressing outrage and concern about “politicization” or the “lack of even-handedness” then?

There is no evidence that agent’s political opinions, which we all have, are affecting any investigations into Trump. Though I will give you that it may be challenging finding educated, intelligent, and enlightened individuals to work with whom don’t believe Donald Trump is dumber than poop on a stick.

I’m sick of phony patriots and Christians and wish more people would see them for what they are. They’re all lying hypocrites. If you want to be Donald Trump’s mule, then go ahead but, you need to be recognized for it.

I hope America is better than you. I know the FBI is, and that’s what’s scaring you.

Furt Those Tweets


cjones12052017

After Trump fired his National Security Adviser Michael Flynn (after being on the job for only 24 days), he tweeted that he fired him for lying to Vice President Mike Pence. On Saturday, a tweet went out from Trump’s Twitter account stating he fired Flynn, not just for lying to Pence, but also for lying to the FBI.

This is where it gets troublesome for the orange doofus. Former FBI Director James Comey testified that Trump asked him, after he fired Flynn, to drop the case investigating him. If Trump knew Flynn lied to the FBI, breaking the law, then Trump was obstructing justice.

Trump’s legal team isn’t very good, but they know this. His outside lawyer, John Dowd, bit the bullet and took the blame for the tweet, stating he wrote it, and not Trump. Was Dowd also the one who snorted a line then tweeted out “Covfefe” at 3:00 AM too?

Proving he only has shoddy legal advice, Dowd said the tweet isn’t admitting an obstruction of justice. He’s also arguing that the president cannot obstruct justice because he’s the nation’s chief law enforcement officer. This guy might wanna look into a little episode called Watergate. Trump’s lawyers have also assured him the investigation will be over by January.

Trump is on the record stating he fired Comey because it would end the investigation into his collusion with Russia. Trump told this to the Russian ambassador and the Foreign Minister in the Oval Office. He told the same thing to journalist Lester Holt. Now, Trump is saying he never asked Comey to “go easy” on Flynn. Since Trump has a track record of lying about everything, from birtherism to crowd sizes to pussy grabbing, are we to believe him or Comey?

Someone, I can’t remember who, said Trump’s downfall will be his Tweeting. I believe that. It’s his own big fat mouth that is the cause of there even being a Special Counsel investigation. This weekend, he has attacked the FBI on Twitter, and this morning, he used his account to finally officially endorse a suspected pedophile for the United States Senate. Last week, he tweeted out videos created by a racist and anti-Islamophobic group in Britain. It’s disgusting and very disappointing what Trump is doing to his office.

If Trump’s lawyer really did send out that tweet, then he should be fired. If Trump sent it out, he needs to be fired too.

Creative notes: Saturday morning, I was sitting in the breakfast nook at home with my friends and one of them asked if I’d rush out a cartoon on the Senates tax cut vote. I told her I’d wait until Sunday, as I wanted to take Saturday night off, and I’d still be one of the first cartoonists to cover it. I was wrong.

I started working on a cartoon on that subject at 3:00 AM. Around 5:30, I thought of this idea. Suddenly, the 51 grim reapers I was drawing weren’t as interesting to me anymore. I really liked this idea. So, I put it aside and did this.

I like Rocky Horror but I’m not super goofy about it. Back in the 80s,  some friends and I went to see it at the theater and wore trench coats and threw rice at the screen. My best friend tried to sneak an egg into the place. I don’t know who he was going to pelt with it, but a busky security woman grabbed him by the crotch, where he was hiding the egg, and crushed it. He had to spend two hours sitting in the theater with yolky genitals. I don’t know how she knew he had the egg down there. Oh yeah. I told her.

Tonight: I’m doing the Ask Me Anything thing at 8:00 PM EST. A lot of people have already left questions. You should too. It should be fun, interesting, amusing, and maybe a little educational. It’ll be a must read if you’re a cartoon geek. Eighty-nine people have RSVP. How cool is that? I hope you check it out. Please do so I’ll look important.
