While the Democrats literally "slobbered" over him with their accolades before asking soft ball, guided answer questions, I was pleased to see that even the more liberal Republicans seemed to "get it" in their questioning, all wondering where the collusion or obstruction was when Comey himself broke apart his own supposed arguments. And when he called himself weak, admitted that he was intimidated by Trump and caved to pressure from Lynch regarding the Hillary email scandal, he showed that he truly isn't a man who should have ever led America's premier investigative agency. And then there was his admission that he leaked his own memo via a colleague to a friend and professor at Columbia University to go public. On this latter matter he may find find himself in legal hot water and several have already noted other inconsistencies in this testimony and previous similar gatherings that were all under oath.
It's clear that Comey's dislike for the President is more than just that, it is more likely hate, and in this instance he let his personal feelings overrule what common sense he might have. his was not a good idea, not for Comey, the FBI or the federal government for it makes America look very weak in the eyes of her detractors. For a former government official to whine and talk about his feelings instead of facts when he was afraid to voice those views directly to the one he is trying to destroy never works well. Frankly, it also shows that he's not the brightest attorney around either and the FBI needs much more talented men than James Comey in charge.
Hopefully, this entire issue will soon drop into the dustbin of history and the President, elected to bring change to America by "draining the swamp", will be able to devote his time to running the water pumps and flushing the Washington political scene down the Potomac. Foggy Bottom sure needs a cleansing.
