Quote:Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday that former FBI Director James Comey would have been "incredibly incompetent" if he took actions based on email he knew to be fake.
Graham said in an interview on CNN's "State of the Union" that Comey told the Senate and House select committees on intelligence about such an email, but never indicated it was fake.
"He talked to members of the Senate and House intel committee that he was sitting on emails that the Russians had between the Democratic Party and the Department of Justice that were highly explosive," Graham said. "He never once told a member of the House or the Senate that he thought the email was fake."

Quote:WASHINGTON, May 31 (Reuters) - Former FBI Director James Comey plans to confirm reports that President Trump pressured him to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn's ties to Russia in congressional testimony, CNN said on Wednesday, citing an unidentified source close to the issue.

The Senate Intelligence Committee said on May 19 that Comey, who was fired by Trump earlier in the month, would testify before the panel publicly at some point after the May 29 Memorial Day holiday. CNN said the testimony could come as early as next week.

RE: Comey fired
Would be a shit storm if this happened.

Quote:But can Trump stop Comey from talking?
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Friday that "the President will make that decision," raising the prospect that the White House may try to invoke executive privilege over Comey's conversations with Trump.

RE: Comey fired
I'll say it again, the drumpfuck is his own worst enemy.

I'll further go on to say that the kind of money that flows around him attracts sycophants who want some of it, and will do and say whatever it takes to get some. No "no men" present. With the gov, it's a bit different. He can't just order Congresscritters around as if they were his pets, as he learned, to his chagrin.

RE: Comey fired
Quote:Legal experts, however, are skeptical the President could successfully invoke the privilege to muzzle Comey because Trump has already written a letter about their conversations, talked about them publicly and even tweeted about them.
In other words, they say, the President can't use the privilege as a sword in one context and a shield in another.

and on the Mueller side:

Quote:Like emails, handwritten notes or transcribed Oval Office conversations, the @realdonaldtrump account gives investigators a detailed timeline of Trump’s thoughts and opinions – including where they might differ from official accounts – and can also be used to establish intent, which can be critical in a criminal investigation.

So Trump's big mouth and itchy Tweet fingers are going to testify against him. Laughat

I’ll be a story in your head, but that’s okay, because we’re all stories in the end. Just make it a good one, eh? Because it was, you know. It was the best.

RE: Comey fired
A pro-Trump PAC has a campaign style attack ad they're buying airtime for during Comey's testimony tomorrow, claiming he's a showboating liar who shouldn't be trusted.



Need to think of a witty signature.

Trump says he may be live tweeting during the testimony. I hope he does.
