The Comey Testimony

-->
Trump Maladministration

Naturally I’m having computer issues today, which means posting will be limited. From what I’ve heard of the Senate hearings so far, it strikes me that Republicans seem to be trying to blame Comey for not stopping Trump from trying to obstruct justice. Good luck with that, guys.

    John McCain threw me through a loop.. Seems one of us missed a beat.

    John McCain just plain embarrassed himself.

    I loved Comey’s testimony that he takes Trump at his word that he was fired because of the Russian investigation. Although there is a possibility that Trump could be lying about the real reason. Conundrum anybody?

    I’ve seen a few bits of this.
    “If Comey failed to report obstruction of justice HE COMMITTED A CRIME!” (Except, he wasn’t sure that he had obstruction of justice – he was gathering evidence like any other good investigator, and tried to help Trump avoid incriminating himself)

    “Just because Trump said he fired Comey over the investigation doesn’t mean he did!” (So, what, we can’t trust *anything* Trump says, ever? Really wanna go there, guys?)

    “But he just took the advice of someone else!” (who hadn’t known he was going to be blamed for firing the guy)

    I saw another article about folks in Kentucky having faith in their rep, who voted for the AHCA, and they are *so* sure that they can *trust* him. They have to be able to trust him! He must have seen a problem that needed to be addressed!

    Except there wasn’t – what problems there are won’t be helped by the AHCA, and most will be worsened. This is a pure-D scorched-earth bit of partisan warfare, but his people are sure he is trying to do what’s right. It’s almost heartbreaking.

    LHW,
    What’s heartbreaking, is that these imbeciles are going to take us with them!

    I was disappointed that t-RUMPLE-thin-SKKKin didn’t tweet along with Comey’s testimony, like he’d promised.
    I have a mental picture of his lawyers sitting around, and him, with his hands in clear plastic cones, with his phone a good distance away – like the ones they put around dogs and cats heads, so that they can’t further injure themselves!

    McCain is off is meds again.

    Josh Marshall has a good analysis. http://talkingpointsmemo.com/profile/josh-m

    By itself, the testimony is not a knock-out blow. If Sessions and/or Flynn is proven to have colluded with the Russians, then Trump is in deep shit.

    Yeah, Really 🙂 …. You could even call them cones of silence. If you think about it. Whatever they did it worked. He didn’t tweet today. But Uday filled in.

    It was a great testimony today.. It made me think of the expression..Revenge is a dish best served cold. When Comey pointed out that he was the one who insured that a special prosecutor would be appointed based on the apparent lies that Trump was putting out there. Now the big bag of shit has some real problems. All self inflicted. He’s mired in an investigation that will consume any efforts to rehabilitate this thus far failed presidency. He’s going to be proof positive and validation of my Gila monster bite theory. It’s not the initial bite..it’s the resulting infection that brings you down.
    I was also struck with Comey’s opening statement where he fired back at Trump’s derogatory comment impugning both Comey’s and the FBI’s integrity. I noticed by the timbre in his voice and slight facial movements that a great deal of emotional pain was inflicted by Trump’s vicious characterization about the morale and dedication of the men and women of the FBI.

    Yes, it must be quite difficult for a person of Comeys pedigree (lifelong law enforcement professional, dedicated public servant, unvarnished record) to be put-upon by a overtly selfish, sexual predator, financially entitled, lying piece of shit like Trump. I was struck how Comey seemed to set up Trump, by admitting that he released one of his memo’s hoping it would lead to the appointment of a special prosecutor. To me he is putting the pressure on Trump to fire Mueller, just like Nixon fired Archibald Cox which was the beginning of the end. If only the modern GOP wasn’t full of taint licking opportunists Trump would already be toast!

    Yeah, it’s not easy being maligned by a bloated orange tufted bag of shit.
