Let me say that I am no fan of Trump. I’m not an enemy or never-Trumper either. I’m agnostic. I hope the country succeeds as he is at the helm. I am however a huge fan of some of his campaign promises – the wall – deregulation – energy – immigration.
That being said, I believe Trump is being railroaded. This Russia investigation has been going on for quite some time already, and I see nothing thus far condemning the President. Nor does anyone else. Only hearsay from anonymous sources and unseen memos, without corroboration. People believe what they hear because they want to.
This “public” hearing, which is announced below, will be a farce. Comey should be made to testify, IN PRIVATE, to the Senate Intel committee, under oath, so he may not hedge or get away with the old – that’s classified crap, that happens in public hearings. But that’s not happening. Instead we will be witness to a televised circus, filled with grandstanding clown politicians, one of which is Comey, eager to just be on camera. It will be a complete waste of time and resources. It will be yet another stage for Comey to cement himself as the darling of the media. Nothing else.
from The Hill:
Former FBI Director James Comey has agreed to publicly testify as part of an investigation into Russia’s interference in the election, the Senate Intelligence Committee announced Friday evening.
Comey’s testimony in the open hearing, which the committee said it would schedule after Memorial Day later this month, comes amid continued fallout over President Trump’s abrupt firing of the FBI chief last week.
