Re: Comey in the House: A Sweat Thread

Funny that this thread popped up right after I read this article about the committees being in a turf war over getting Comey's testimony.

This feels a lot like rooting for PA, FL, and OH to do the right thing on election night.

I for one was expecting a military coup against the White House and justice department the second Comey said he actively tried to blend in with the drapes. Thanks for bursting my bubble.

It hasn't been scheduled. We were told it would be after Memorial day, but I'm not sure what reason there is to think it will be this week.

Re: Comey in the House: A Sweat Thread

Did the president ask you to stop the investigation?

Comey: he gently grabbed my nutsack and whispered "Lay off Flynn or you will be sleeping with the fishes."

watching the testimony videos I found when I searched youtube with "comey obstruction" makes it clear he will have no smoking gun. he has already cleared Trump in his previous testimony. nothing burger coming.

Re: Comey in the House: A Sweat Thread

Wrt claims that "nothing will happen"...LOL, do you expect that comey is gonna drop exclusive bombs that the IC community doesnt already know about? IC community obv knows wayyyy more than has been leaked to the public, and this is a chance for us to learn more about what we dont know. It doesnt mean that anybody should necessarily expect impeachment proceedings the day after he testifies, or else its some big waste of time. He will almost certainly have some very interesting things to share

The hill does reporting? All I ever see are right-wing talking points in the form of blogs.

This is a Trumpist lie that has already been debunked in this forum. It misrepresents testimony where Comey says the AG/DOJ haven't halted an FBI investigation for political reasons.

Yeah, he's not going to choose to testify publically just to answer a bunch of questions with "I can't comment on an ongoing investigation." He has something to say, it won't be a legal smoking gun, but it will be politically damaging and serve to increase the public's demand for accountability. Think less along the lines of his previous Trump hearings and more like the way he wrecked Hillary politically with the results of the email investigation.

GTFO with that complete bs. Every word you spewed is made up, pure and simple. For a shill, you are mightily incompetent.
