Disgrace: Comey “Would Have to Think About” Giving Trump Classified Information

Published

on

Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey said that he would have to consider whether to show President Donald J. Trump classified intel if were still leading America’s top law enforcement agency.

Comey, famous for turning the once-revered FBI into a three ring circus, made his comments on “Newsnight,” a nightly news program on Britain’s BBC, which will air this evening, according The Hill who received an advanced audio tape.

“You’d have to think about it [with Trump] in a way you probably wouldn’t have with other presidents,” he said, referring to whether he would allow the duly elected President of the United States access to classified intel.

Comey then admitted that he might even circumvent the Constitution if he so-pleased by making a personal judgment as to whether the President is fit to see such information.

“You’d have to be very careful, because you have an obligation under our Constitution and the structure of our government to make sure the president has the information the president needs,” Comey said.

That’s right – the supposedly non-partisan law enforcement officer would consider breaking the law if he felt like it was the best thing to do. Forget the 63 million people who voted for Trump to have access to classified information. Jim Comey would have made himself the gatekeeper.

In February 2017, Business Insider reported that U.S. intelligence agencies were withholding sensitive information from the President. At that time, Comey was still in charge at the FBI. Was Comey behind that charade, actively undermining Trump?

One thing is becoming clear. Comey’s book tour is sure to be very revealing, and could do more damage to an agency that many people are already questioning.

To that end, and for the sheer entertainment value, the rest of Comey’s book tour should be marvelous.

Muslim Inmate Sues Because He Got Hungry During His Ramadan Fast

Published

on

During the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, Muslim inmates in North Carolina are given an opportunity to fast. One Muslim inmate at the Mecklenburg County Jail in North Carolina is suing after he requested the fast, and then became hungry from fasting.

Travaile Speller has sued the jail, claiming that the jail discriminated against his religious practice by giving him two, instead of three meals a day during Ramadan.

“That is clearly depriving me of necessary calories, as well as the recommend(ed) daily volume of nutrients that my body requires to function normally,” Speller wrote in his hand-written complaint. “They are intentionally eliminating one whole meal (lunch) which is cruel and unusual punishment directed towards all Muslims,” the inmate argued.

During Ramadan, which took place between May 15 and June 15 this year, practicing Muslims are only allowed to eat two meals a day before dawn (suhoor) and after sunset (iftar). During the daytime, Muslims who celebrate Ramadan must refrain from eating, drinking, and having sex for an entire month.

The inmate’s lawsuit is so outrageous, it prompted a response from Jibril Hough, a spokesman for the Islamic center of Charlotte. “”They withheld his lunch during Ramadan? They were supposed to withhold it during Ramadan. The jail was doing him a favor and actually respecting his faith,” Hough said.

During Ramadan, Speller received two meals each day, as he requested in an official jail form in which he indicated that he would like to observe the Ramadan fast. On the form, Muslim inmates are told exactly how the Ramadan fast works and when they will receive their meals if they decide to fast.

Speller filed his lawsuit after Ramadan, arguing, “My meals should not be diminished based on my religion, or because of my observance of my religious holiday.”

Speller’s lawsuit is calling for a jury trial, and $250,000 in damages, despite the fact that the jail itself was more compliant with the Ramadan fast than the Muslim inmate who claimed he wanted to observe the holiday himself.
