He never trusted Trump
Trump is weird
There is "no fuzz" about Russian involvement. Mention twice.
So it's safe to say that this testimony is very damaging to Trump in your opinion? I'm sure the repukes will spin, but surely this is going to negatively impact Trump and company?
I read the printed opening testimony, and it didn't seem all that terrible, but I also got the feeling that Comey was trying to show that he was being completely honest.
Thanks again for taking the time to help out a fellow DUer. If I could, I would be glued to this testimony!
Comey said that:
1. Trump's a liar.
2. He "directed" him to stop the investigation (not "ordered" but I don't think that's relevant for purposes of obstruction)
3. The "lack of investigation of Trump" only referred to the counterintelligence investigation of Flynn and didn't necessarily preclude further FBI investigation of Trump
4. Trump's vague tweet about "taping" his conversations with Comey lead him to raise the issue of his memos in the hopes it would get an special counsel appointed.
When asked by Collins..
That's good stuff! I can't believe we are in a place in history where the former Director of FBI tells the world that our sitting FAKE POTUS is a liar!
I pray that the Repukes get a spine and see that Turnip was trying to obstruct.
No matter what comes out, we are not getting any closer to Trump being out of the WH until the Repugs stop protecting him. They are vile sub humans IMHO, they care only about their "boys club," lining their pockets, and getting re-elected. The later is the only thing that will motivate them to bury the orange man baby.
The whole debacle really knocks the shine off our legacy of the greatest nation on the planet, at least in my eyes. Sorry, I'm rambling on, I just want this to end.
I'm trying to get better. I think I could handle this better if Dump wasn't so dangerous. He clearly belongs in a nuthouse as opposed to the White House. That makes it really difficult for me to control my patience and overall exasperation with the thuglican enablers.
And it's been downhill from there...
