I can actually feel for Comey when his brain received ‘will no one rid me of this meddlesome investigation’
And I can feel the gears moving when Comey watched Pence and Sessions leave the room. ‘DANGER WILL ROBINSON’.
BUT THEN, oh then …
Comey could not answer when he was asked if an FBI agent was obligated to report a crime.
Comey could find no adequate answer as to why he did not resign or threaten to resign, then or when Loretta Lynch demanded he call the Clinton email investigation a “matter”. His job was to REPORT the PERCEIVED crimes not to decide if a crime could be pursued to conviction. Imagine if all cops arrogated to themselves the jurisprudence to decide an arrest or investigation should go on if there was insufficient proof to convict.
The way I see this now is the only hope for this to make any sense drops on Flynn. If there is something to flip over, there’s trouble, and it sounded like Flynn may be in Martha Stewart trouble. There was no crime to begin with but there is an induced process crime, lying to the FBI during questioning. I can see Trump a LOYALTY GUY asking Comey to go easy on that kind of thing.
Improper. Dumb. Inappropriate. Nothing more.
Past that. it’s pretty light.
Comey thinks Trump is a liar. BFD.
Join 45% of America who thought that before the election, and IT DIDN’T MATTER.
Just more partisanship.
My observation is that is that all this will eventually lead to civil violence.
