Over Our Heads

After remarks made by John McCain and other senators during the Senate Intelligence Committee Hearings

 

 

What I think I think it is

 

 

but you have to Mr. Comey, I’m asking you

 

and you then assume

 

that Hillary Clinton

 

is innocent while the President-elect

 

I mean (looks over at the rest of the panel)

 

you mean oh well

 

I just want the record to state

 

the state of your refusal

 

and you’re telling me

 

as wishy washy You know what I mean

 

and shall for the American people

 

as far as I can tell trees feel as well

 

and so you feel but I don’t care what you feel

 

what I’m asking is

 

the truth has to come out and were you aware at the time

 

if time tells and you didn’t feel it was right

 

to end that investigation and you ended that investigation

 

but I’m just pointing out the strangeness

 

in the strangeness of the outcome

 

for the American people and nobody doubts that, Mr. Comey

 

but you have to admit the Washington Post

 

I mean the article in it

 

and have you read it I’ve read it

 

and you read it we’ve all read it

 

at least in part I mean it’s a double standard

 

I feel that way too Admiral, sometimes

 

but I’m just confused here as I’m sure you are
