Since I have a day job, I was not afforded the opportunity to sit and view fired FBI Director James Comey’s public testimony on the Hill yesterday.
I would not have anyway, figuring it would a nothing-burger. I was right. From what I can glean, Comey didn’t offer any further enlightenment or bombshells. It seems to be just a rehashing of his written statement, and everything that has trickled out over the past several months.
Basically that he was a scared girly-man, afraid of big bad President Trump. Maybe he thought one of his private meeting would result in the President body-slamming him ala Greg Gianforte.
From what I understand, he was so concerned about the lack of the President’s character, that he felt the need to run out of his meetings with Trump and type a detailed recollection of every word that was said on a laptop in his car. No doubt he has an eidetic memory, so no one should question the word-for-word accuracy of his accounting. And oddly enough, I don’t think anyone did. I also don’t think anyone asked if the memo (s) he leaked to a reporter were his, or more likely, the property of the FBI, typed on an FBI laptop, in an FBI vehicle. I think we would have heard that exchange, which is why I don’t believe he was asked.
Still, as I did not have a chance to view Comey’s testimony, nor will I, I left the after-action analysis to Kayleigh Mcenany of The Hill.com
