Michael Master serves up an odd defense of President Trump in his April 20 WorldNetDaily column:
In promoting his new book, former FBI Director James Comey referred to Trump as being like a “mob boss.”
Al Capone was a mob boss. The FBI tried in vain for years to catch Capone at breaking the law as a mob boss so they could lock him up. The FBI failed at the task at hand and so looked for some other way to get Capone. The FBI solicited help from the IRS and indicted/convicted Capone for tax evasion – but nothing for Capone’s actions as a mob boss.
The general population accepted the actions of the IRS/FBI collusion against Capone because the popular thought was that Capone was a bad guy who should be removed from society.
And how did the general population learn about Capone? From the media and the information leaked to the press from the J. Edgar Hoover led FBI. That was the same J. Edgar Hoover who kept private files about politicians that he used as blackmail to keep Congress and presidents from interfering with his FBI, including files about the female escapades of JFK, RFK and Martin Luther King Jr..
Now, the FBI is doing the same thing to Trump. McCabe, Comey, Mueller, Rosenstein … all part of the FBI deep state. Why did Rosenstein give so much latitude to Mueller? Why did McCabe leak information to the press? Notes kept by Comey to be used against Trump? Comparisons of Trump to a mob boss? All deliberate. What do they have on Attorney General Sessions? What do they have on members of Congress?
For Comey to refer to Trump as a mob boss says it all. Capone had people killed. His mob brought drugs into the U.S. Prostitution. Bootlegging. Gambling. Did Trump do any of that?
Master seems to have forgotten that Trump used to own casinos emblazoned with his name. He also ignored that Comey explained his "mob boss" statement by highlighting how Trump demands loyalty to him over even loyalty to the country.
Master's column comes to its expected conspiratorial end by stating, "Trump a mob boss? hardly. The real threat to America is them … the deep state.
