So the former FBI Director James Comey testified before Congress about his prior investigations and his dealings with President Trump (it’s still strange to type that). Here’s how much of a circus this has become:
- The Director admitting leaking information to the NY Times via a friend
- The leak supposedly contained notes he wrote after meeting with Trump
- When asked for his notes, he claims he no longer has a copy
- Congress has to ask his friend for any copies he received
Really? Really? Either the former Director or the President (or, quite likely, both) is shading the truth considerably. If it can be shown the Director broke rules on protecting information, or has perjured himself before Congress, there needs to be severe penalties. Congress also needs to take Trump up on his offer to testify under oath. And finally, it appears former Attorney General Lynch put more pressure on Comey than Trump ever did… something you likely won’t hear played up in the press.
Any last vestiges of credibility our government may miraculously have seem to be vanishing right before our eyes. At this point, maybe an EMP blast from North Korea would be an improvement. At least then we wouldn’t have to listen to these idiots and their pageantry on radio or TV anymore. And we’d all be too busy scratching out an existence to care about anything beyond the next town.
