Every answer he gave was right from the heart and from his memory, as it happened. His testimony was not designed to drive a stake into the heart of Donald Trump, just to provide one piece of the puzzle in what really went on.

No need for you Trumpees to start cheering yet, we are not even into the first quarter here. We'll see how you feel in the post game interviews.
you do realize that if Trump had tried to obstruct justice, then Comey would be guilty of a felony for not reporting it right?


you do realize that if Trump had tried to obstruct justice, Comey would be guilty of a felony for perjury because on 5/3 after his conversations with Trump, Comey testified before congress stating that he had never heard of a president trying to shut down an investigation....




this is a nothing burger because if there was a there there and if Comey is a saint like you say, he would have said so on May3...

This is important. For every complaint the progressives make, Obama was a more blatant and direct offender, yet.. what did we hear of him?

Odd, that's quite a different opinion when Clinton was in the crosshairs

What is their response in a nutshell?
Where to even start? I'm not watching continuously as I'm working from home, but it looks like Col. Sanders Blitzer is whining about how anyone cannot be concerned about Russia interference.

Comey "obstructed justice" when he leaked his memo to encourage the appointment of a special prosecutor to get it out of the hands of the FBI or Congress.

His flip flopping in that investigation was when I first noticed he was not a credible person to head the FBI.

His comments today about being a self admitted "weakling" and "coward" confirm my thoughts.

I was hoping to see American loyalists asking Comey questions. Instead I saw all but a few were party loyalists.

Too many Republicans were trying to lead their inquiry in the direction if Clinton wasn't charged with any wrongdoings, neither should Trump. Of course they failed to mention one investigation had concluded while the other is ongoing. Maybe they should have said, "I hope you can let this go."

When one guy tried to downplay Trump's quote and said Trump never directly told Comey to stop the investigation, I was hoping Comey would give an analogy something like the mob guy who shaking someone down and says, "I hope we have come to an agreement."

Why do you think Trump's Muslim ban is struggling? It is because the courts care about intent. That is also why we have differing charges for murder, due to INTENT.

did the person mean to kill them, or was it unintentional?


I am not asking you to like Pedro i am merely correcting a poorly informed poster who thinks it is all about the combination of words when millions of cases are won and lost, based not on the exact words but the intent of them.

So far, it doesn't look like there is enough evidence that Trump tried to stop the investigation. An I'm not a Trumpling!

The other thing, people who love this country on both sides should want an investigation into Russia's cyber hacking us. Because in four years if we find out that some foreign government is hacking us to prevent republicans from winning the next election, you can't change your mind about an investigation about hacking.
Then WHY DID COMEY SAY THREE TIMES TO TRUMP...You are NOT under investigation ?
