Fortunately, for truth's sake, most of us are smart enough to look at more than just the first right wing results of a single specifically-worded Google search.

"comey obstruction" sounds like something you should not look for on Youtube.

Re: Comey in the House: A Sweat Thread

Could testify as early as next week.

Seems like he'll be continually pushed back by Congress.

Re: Comey in the House: A Sweat Thread

CNN source is saying as early as next week too, and that he's going to confirm that Trump pressured him on the probe.

In other words, nothing new really. Thanks CNN.

(LOL one guy on the panel is trying to push the "Comey cleared Trump" lie.)

Re: Comey in the House: A Sweat Thread

I think it would be interesting if someone asked Comey (maybe an hour into the hearing) to recall the events of the hearing to that point....the questions that were asked and who asked them, and what his responses were. It would serve as a test of his recall ability. If he nails it, its not going to look any better for Trump.

Why not push it further and have them scrutinize his answers in enough detail that he ****s up, giving Team Trump an out?

Re: Comey in the House: A Sweat Thread

Almost certainly they leaked Dem emails in an attempt to sway the election. There may have been clandestine involvement with the Trump campaign. What that would mean is unclear but could be, for example, a quid pro quo where Trump got Russian support (or Russia agreed not to release compromising material) in exchange for policy concessions. "Russian support" could mean something like Trump being supplied with illegally obtained oppo research, or given social media support, or whatever. We have no idea whether that happened or not, which is why we need an inquiry.

Re: Comey in the House: A Sweat Thread

I'm not as concerned about the election meddling, though they tried to "expose" one side, had a troll army, worked through wikileaks, allegedly "explored" state-level voter information, etc.

However, I'm more concerned with tilting US policy toward Russian interests in exchange for potential financial or other favors, or based on blackmail. In my mind that's borderline treasonous and the reason why the Constitution has an emoluments clause in the first place.

Re: Comey in the House: A Sweat Thread

Has the Trump admin ever provided us with what Russia has been doing for America* to earn so many pro-Putin policies?

*AMERICA, not Trump. Because the US presidency is not about what the POTUS can get out of it 24/7 365. (something very much overlooked when reviewing fitness for office)

Re: Comey in the House: A Sweat Thread

Even a slightly vindictive Comey can tilt the **** out of Donald Trumpsky next week. Like the whole "helping Trump win the election made me mildly nauseous" thing. For example:

"I didn't report obstruction in the beginning because I felt the president was just ignorant about how life works in Washington, and thought I could take him under my wing and teach him. Once he showed me he wasn't capable of learning how to behave properly, I started telling others the story."

LMAO Pendejo Drumpf.

From talking with the few trumpkins I know, their thinking is Russia = Putin = Good because he's willing to bomb the **** out of Syrian "rebels" and they get secretly hard that civilians may get caught in the crossfire.

Don't forget that people who consume any sort of right wing media online have been on a steady diet of Russian propaganda.

Try telling them too. It would be just like Trump with Flynn.

Trumpkin's IT Guy: Hey, watch out for that YouTube garbage. A bunch of it is fake Russian propaganda posing as conservative media.
Trumpkin: GTFO with that radical left bs. You're fired!

Think you mean "Can't Block". Lawrence Tribe is on Chris Hayes tonight, he'll explain why.
