What’s going here? Did Webb deceive the public? Is Michael Daley not a member of the Daley family?

Attorney Dan Webb is named special prosecutor to investigate the death of David Koschman at Cook County Criminal Courts on April 23, 2012 .

Some years back, when Chicago Sun-Times reporters Chris Fusco and Tim Novak were peeling back the lies and the cover-ups of the Chicago Police investigation involving the death of David Koschman, it seemed to most of veteran cops in Chicago just a matter of time before they uncovered the truth on just how much clout there was, even in police-related investigations involving a violent death.

Now we are left wondering about the unmentioned elephant in the room. R.J. Vanecko was finally charged by Special Prosecutor Dan Webb, but it seems all is not said and done. Evidence has now emerged that the Daley family knew of the incident involving the mayor’s family less than eight hours after the incident. This evidence was never released until recently.

Webb said it was protected by the grand jury. Webb also said before a press conference announcing the results of the investigation that the Daley family was not involved and did not know of the incident until long after.

What’s going here? Did Webb (old squeaky clean) deceive the public? Is Michael Daley not a member of the Daley family?

I’d say we need an explanation from Webb, who is also investigating the Jussie Smollett mess involving Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx. There is lots more to this sordid story, and we need to hear from Webb very soon.

Dial it down, Donald

I can barely stand to watch any news with POTUS taking center stage. Once again he has shown his true colors. He was insulting, crude, rude, belligerent and pompous when reporters ask him meaningful questions. Dial it down, Donald. The reporters are doing their jobs. If only he would do his in a more presidential manner, but that would be asking too much because he is apparently incapable of the task.

Who was responsible?

I would love to know which member of the deep state put a gun to Donald Trump’s head on July 27, 2016, and forced him to say, “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails (of Hillary Clinton’s) that are missing.” 

Was it James Comey or Andrew McCabe or John Brennan or James Clapper or, perhaps, Lisa Page? Or maybe the responsible person was that great defender of truth and fairness and justice for all: Donald Trump. And I wonder which one of them twice forced Michael Flynn to plead guilty to “willfully and knowingly” make “false, fictitious and fraudulent statements” to the FBI regarding conversations with Russia’s ambassador.

No carte blanche

The newly elected president of Chicago FOP John Catazara, says ” ... our lodge and our FOP union ... obviously have President Trump’s back no matter what.”

So no matter what Trump says or does or how badly he screws up, he will still get police union support. Wrong attitude. You can’t give anybody carte blanche.
