Comey’s Last Cast

If you ever spent any time fishin’, you can appreciate the psychology behind the FBI’s bombshell leak today that it used Christoper Steele’s now-famous dossier to obtain a FISA warrant against Trump adviser Carter Page last year.  This means the dossier was corroborated against other available evidence and met the threshold of “probable cause” to obtain the warrant.

That’s all well and good, but what does it mean in context of the current #TrumpRussia scandal?  That’s where the fishin’ comes in!

Tea Pain Carter Page Worm

Last week James Comey trickled out a teasin’ little morsel that Carter Page was the target of a FISA warrant.  This was ol’ Jimmy baitin’ his hook and danglin’ it in the water to see what mid-level minnow was interested in takin’ a nibble. Once Jimmy snagged him a nice juicy bait-fish or two, he’d be ready to go after the illusive tiny-finned King Fish.

If Page is the worm, then who is the little fish?  Why any one of a dozen of the usually scaly suspects will do: Mike Finn, Roger Stonefish, or Paul Manatee, maybe even a few more exotic species such as mayor-mackerel Giuliani or Boris “Blowfish” Epshteyn.

So what does this leak really mean?  First of all, it was leaked intentionally and had a loud and clear message: Comey has plenty of little fish and now he’s just cullin’.  What is “cullin'”, you ask?  That’s when you done caught your limit, but you keep on fishin’, keepin’ the bigger fish while throwin’ the little ones back.  Today’s leak is also a signal, a clarion-call that Comey is about to make his final cast and head to the house.

The dossier is for real and if you’re in it, then God help ya!  The little fish with the best fish-story escapes the fryer!

  1. Love it! However, you spelled “elusive” as “illusive” and I’m not sure if that’s the right word… Or even a real word?

  2. Do you think there’s any possibility that Carter Page is helping with the cull? (i.e. has been working with the FBI for some time now?) I keep looking for an explanation for his unrelenting doofusness.

  3. Damn it, Pain, now I’m hungry!

    What are your thoughts on Louise Mensch’s piece speculating that Comey has tape of Manafort, Boris and Page talking about how to get a tape of Trump offering Putin to lift sanctions in exchange for help with the election?
