2. In a word, "collusion"

With such an unpopular asshole candidate, they still had to bring in Comey at the last minute to besmear Clinton so they could get away with switching 40,000 voters to swing the electoral college. Wake up America!

3. She may know something, but she says it right there "It is incumbent on this committee

that we have access .... "

There's the problem! I'm betting Comey says "Nyet" to the access because he's got an "ongoing" investigation.

8. Congress has ongoing investigations, too, and have every right to the intel.

Comey might try, but he won't succeed in suppressing incriminating information because he will be risking indictment himself if it turns out he's sittting on a smoking gun or two.

5. If the Trump campaign was under surveillance, imagine what crimes were overheard!

I'm hoping this takes us into election annulment territory.

7. There's no consitutional provision for "election annulment"

There is, however, a process for impeachment.

13. It's so speculative at this point, who knows

wouldn't surprise me if they tried to keep him isolated, sure seems to me the rank and file GOP would just as soon have Pence to deal with anyway.

Course if Pence is impeached too, then we're stuck with Paul Ryan, who in theory might be a stronger candidate in 2020 than Pence. Again, speculation.

If this thing is really that bad, though, I don't know how they wash the stink off the entire party. Sad!

Ryan would be the lamest of lame ducks.

10. What makes people think FBI Director Comey is not involved in the collusion with Russia.

After what he did to President (unsworn) Clinton, against all formal and acknowledged FBI standards, he simply has no more credibility than his owner, Trump.

Some how the Russian underworld got their claws into our national infrastructure and now we are paying the cost. That being the unraveling of our faith in our government.

No matter what Comey does at the hearings, you can bet the rigged questions and answers are already to go and will maintain the current status quo. If he doesn't outright lie he will obfuscate and deflect. Not answering a direct question seems to be the art of every slick, self serving political hack. Comey will be no different. Russia may well have something on him and he will bend to their wishes to hide and protect their attack on our election process to insert their candidate of choice.

Russia wants to become, again, the Soviet Union. To get to that condition they have to disarm NATO. Trump has already indicated he will allow the defanging of NATO. This clears Russia's path. Russia only needs a short period of indecision on the part of the West when Putin and his forces step into Western Europe. Once Putin has acquired what he wants he will see it as a done deal and only nuclear war will push him back.

35. If Comey colludes, the CIA could make things hot for him.

He might decide it is not in his own best interest to continue to protect Cheato.

28. Schiff: Russians hacked our election and interfered. No one disputes this now, but you



As you will see during our hearing, Mr. President, there is no evidence Mr. Obama tapped your phones. This is what is called "fiction."

Your suggestion British wiretapped you & jape with Merkel are harming our relationships with key allies. This is called "collateral damage."

The intelligence community concluded the Russians will interfere again. This is why full investigation is important to country. Please stop.

36. The term "hack" is now used to refer to any clever trick (e.g.,"life hacks").

Besides, there are many ways to rig an election without hacking voting machines--though that might have happened, too.

And certainly the DNC and Podesta's emails were hacked, literally, to drag down HRC's vote count.

Of course Sessions knows all this.
