wait a minute — were Jim Jordan and James Comer knowingly working with a Chinese spy?
the more we know about Gal Luft, the more unsavory this story gets
James Comer and Jim Jordan, that unpleasant rake-stepping duo from the Congressional Rodeo Clown Caucus, have a bit of a problem.
yesterday we learned that their rumored-dead whistleblower was indeed alive — and in hiding to avoid arrest for spying on his own country in the service of the Chinese government.
now we’re learning more about whistleblower/spy Gal Luft, and the more we know, the more unsavory this story gets.
let’s have a look.
oh gee. let’s see, Gal’s accused of being —
— an unregistered foreign agent (a.k.a. a spy). nice.
— an arms dealer. very cool.
— a violator of Iran sanctions. peachy-keen.
— a liar. fucking awesome.
hell of a “whistleblower” you got there, Jim and James. you two idiots are really covering yourselves in glory.
and now, right on cue, the usual gang of idiotic performative-nonsense howler-chimps are screeching: OUR WHISTLEBLOWER IS BEING PERSECUTED BY THE BIDEN DOJ! IT’S A COVER-UP!
edited 1:13pm July 12: MAJOR ERROR HERE in the section below: the indictment was sealed on Nov 1, 2022. someone on the internet is wrong, and that someone is me. the rest of the piece is factually correct.
Gal’s indictment isn’t a Biden-orchestrated cover-up, you ill-mannered children, and I’ll explain why. warning, this explanation requires detailed knowledge of how calendars work. the indictment again Gal Luft was signed and sealed on November 1, 2020. now think back. who was president on that day? that’s right, it was Not Joe Biden . and who was attorney general on that day? right again! it was Not Merrick Garland . good job! here, have a cookie. so the Trump DOJ was after Luft, and he skipped bail and went on the lam to avoid arrest.
which bring us to this: did Comer and Jordan know that they were working with an unregistered foreign agent and fugitive from justice? neither possible answer is great.
if they got duped by this guy, then they’re fucking morons, and whatever shreds of credibility these clowns had is gone forever.
and if they didn’t get duped, that means they were knowingly working with an agent of the Chinese government to undermine a sitting president and make his family look bad. what would call that? because it’s the exact fucking opposite of patriotism.
also, if Jordan and Comer knew that Luft — a spy — was on the run, and knew how to contact him while he was in hiding — well, isn’t aiding and abetting a fugitive a crime?
and finally: Jordan and Comer still want Luft to testify in front of Congress, in person.
it’s all theater — the second that Luft appears on the steps in front of Congress, he’ll be arrested, handcuffed and taken away.
and then the Republicans will be able to scream LOOK, THEY’RE SILENCING OUR WHISTLEBLOWER!
won’t that play great on Fox News, and on the cover of the New York Post?
facts be damned — and national security along with them.

folks, a word on a different subject before I let you go: we’re doing some quarterly fundraising at my other venture, The Smirking Chimp. I’m leery of even mentioning it because if you’re one of the people paying to support my own writing here, you’re already doing god’s work and you’re already doing more than enough to help out. but if you’ve got five dollars that you absolutely wouldn’t miss and you do feel like supporting the Chimp, well, that just makes you twice the hero. the donation link is here, or you can go straight to paypal if you need no further convincing. and if you don’t care to donate, that’s totally cool, too, and we will not speak of this again. in fact, we never had this conversation. thanks for listening and that’s it from me for now.
