Comey’s Testimony Stumps Fuming And Fumbling Trump Defenders

Share
Mueller

In his historic appearance before the Senate Intelligence Committee, James Comey explained calmly and cogently how he had approached his fraught relationship with the new president: From day one, the former FBI director said he treated Donald Trump as someone with a propensity to lie.

Whatever anyone thinks of Comey and his conduct during last year’s election — for which he was criticized harshly in these pages — his offenses did not include lying. The same obviously cannot be said of Trump, the president whose utterances have made his name synonymous with “Pinocchio.”

Facing the calm, patient, and respected veteran of law enforcement, Senate Republicans could scarcely fabricate a plausible defense of the president. Comey’s testimony about Trump’s repeated attempts to intimidate him into killing the investigation of Mike Flynn, the former national security adviser, was detailed and damning.

Senator James Risch (R-ID) made the most amusing attempt to exculpate Trump. According to Risch, Trump couldn’t be charged with a crime for telling Comey that he “hoped” the FBI director would “let Flynn go,” rather than prosecute the ex-national security adviser.

“Do you know of any case where a person has been charged for obstruction of justice, or for that matter any other criminal offense, where they said or thought they hoped for an outcome?” demanded Risch. Unable to name a case offhand, Comey patiently explained, “I took it as a direction. This is the President of the United States with me alone saying, ‘I hope this’. I took it as this is what he wants me to do. I didn’t obey that but that’s the way I took it.”

But in fact, defendants who expressed that kind of “hope,” under such highly suspicious circumstances, have not only been charged with obstructing justice but convicted of that same crime.

Key takeaways from the James Comey Senate hearing Comey claims that the White House tried to "defame me" and "lied" about his firing when they said Trump was firing him for undermining the morale of the agency he had led since 2013. When it came to the FBI's investigation into Trump administration ties with Russia, Comey said he couldn't answer those question in "an open setting." He did infer that Trump inappropriately interfered in the investigation but that the president didn't ask him to drop it entirely. Comey had a friend intentionally leak memos of his conversations with Trump to the press in hopes of having a special counsel oversee the Russia investigation. Comey rebuffed Trump's assertion that he "better hope that there are no tapes of our conversations," saying "Lordy, I hope there are tapes." Trump spoke highly of Comey's ability to run the FBI. The FBI was not investigating Trump when the president fired Comey on May 9.

Just last year, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit upheld the conviction of a Dallas police officer on four federal obstruction counts. He was found guilty of trying to suppress evidence that he had exchanged law enforcement intelligence with a prostitute for sexual favors. When the FBI was closing in, the crooked cop had told the young lady in a recorded conversation: “I’m just hoping you haven’t told anyone anything.” The appeals court opinion said that such circumstantial evidence was sufficient to prove that the cop had “acted with the intent to impede that investigation.” (As an attorney, Risch should have been able to look up this and similar cases before posing his silly question.)

With equally compelling logic, the Republicans hinted that Comey should have arrested Trump for obstruction of justice in the Oval Office — as Attorney General Jeff Sessions loitered outside, after being invited to leave so Trump could make his pitch to Comey. Having failed to do so, they argued, Comey must not have thought that Trump did anything wrong.

Of course, the FBI director made careful notes of those improper conversations and reported them to his subordinates and other Justice Department officials because he knew Trump’s pressure on him was improper at best. Still, as Comey admitted, he might well have pushed back harder. But it is ridiculous for the Republicans to suggest that because he didn’t instantly report Trump’s improper conduct as a potentially impeachable offense, to either the Attorney General or the Congress or both, then the president must be innocent.

That argument is like claiming that because nobody called the police in time, Kitty Genovese was never murdered. The failure to report a crime doesn’t retroactively exonerate the suspect, nor does it prove that the crime never occurred.

When asked whether he believes that the president obstructed justice, Comey properly deferred to Robert Mueller — the special counsel to whom he has turned over his carefully preserved evidence, with full confidence that Mueller will evaluate whether Trump’s misconduct was criminal.

So if Trump was not personally under investigation in the earlier phases of the Russia investigation, he is now. And the president is in legal jeopardy not just because Comey documented his initial attempts to kill the Flynn case, but because he reacted to Comey’s recalcitrance by dismissing him — and then boasted to the Russian ambassador and foreign minister, in the Oval Office, that he had fired the “nut job” FBI director and relieved the “great pressure” of the Russia investigation.

Now Comey’s testimony has publicly set forth the disturbing context of that extraordinary confession. What he told us cannot be ignored or diminished unless we care nothing for the rule of law.

        What would it take to have you see Trump as the charlatan he is?

        Knowing the FBI Director you praised when investigating Hillary’s e-mails, considers Trump a liar?

          Is this the same FBI Director who leaked confidential work products (his memo) that he composed while on the government payroll, in a government vehicle, with a government laptop while being chauffeured by an FBI agent, such work products are automatically classified as confidential/privileged documents until they are upgraded or downgraded by the NSA, FBI or other security division with that responsibility.

          Or is it the FBI Director who changed an investigation into a “matter” at the bequest of his boss, even though he knew that was not appropriate and should have reported it to a responsible party (senate, house or other law enforcement official).

          Or is it the FBI Director who has the intuitive ability to see into another persons thought processes and call them a liar or the FBI Director who decided to convert a “hope” into a “demand” that he discontinue the “water torture” of the General?

          Us mortals often are confused when factual and verifiable data is compared to personal memo’s and unverified conversations.

          There’s also the multitude of scandals committed during the obamba Regime which comey seemingly, as the highest law enforcement official in America, assisted in covering up or simply ignoring, that does raise a question 🙂

          We certainly live in interesting times!

            Richie, Richie, Richie, why are you using misdirection?
            The issue at hand is NOT what was done during the Obama Administration. Trust us on this, the GOP controlled Congress spent six years trying to find something worth investigating and everything they did find was a legacy of something set into motion by Cheney and company during the previous administration, prosecution of which would have drawn significant numbers of their colleagues with information before-the-fact into the same net they were unsuccessfully using against Team Obama.
            Teflon Donnie’s team, on the other hand, has been very public about all of their peccadilloes and attempts to sidestep the very laws they all swore to uphold.

        Hi moron troll,

        There’s only one thing that is going to burst…. my sides if President Snowflake begins tweeting about the Comey hearing… LOL

        Also:
        Trump has supposedly agreed to testify to a Congressional committee… under Oath.

        Do you understand what is going to happen when the guy who is utterly divorced from reality, stupid, ignorant, lies continuously and has a 2min attention span is forced to sit for 2 hours in front of people much smarter than him and carefully and precisely answer complicated questions without lying, contradicting himself, or inadvertently incriminating himself?
        You realise it’s a criminal offense to lie under oath, right?

        Clinton managed answering 12 hours of questions in front of the Benghazi investigation… because she’s smart, focused and at the top of her political game.

        President F**kface Von Clownstick can’t even tweet coherently, or without ruining his own legal cases.

        I expect I’ll be amusing myself at your expense in the not too distant future.
        We can watch your lies, astroturfing, and arrogant bullsh!t disintegrate together.

          “Clinton did it for 12 hours in front of the Benghazi investigation” . . . I assume you mean she lied for 12 hours?

          I find it interesting how folks who can’t prove anything always revert to foul language . . . yes, quite interesting.

          comey “patriotically” held up his responsibility by leaking government “privileged communications” he developed as a government employee but setting up a 3rd party and even wooed the audience by his being “shocked” by President Trump, while “going along” with lynch’s request to call the investigation, a “matter”, which should have been reported to the Senate and/or House Judiciary committee.

          Not to mention his famous indictment speech of “the witch” and her email publications of secrets, destruction of 30,000 government documents and general disregard for casebook law and finally punctuating it with his famous, “never mind”

            Sure buddy…
            I can’t prove anything so I “revert to foul language”…
            That must be it!! There’s no way I could be calling you bad names for any other reason…. right?

            Or could it be that I DO make serious arguments, state facts, and point out evidence…. and you ARE a shameless, sexual-predator-loving, Trump-apologist who is quite happy to defend a guy who is running the government like a corrupt mafia family while he siphons as much personal wealth out of it as he possibly can?

            Gee… I wonder which of those options it might be?
            I’m thinking that you being a sell-out astroturfing slimeball, who is terminally immune to facts or logic is really the most likely of the two options.

            As for the rest of your dribble…

            My point about Clinton’s stamina was a side point to Trump’s corruption and the laughable image of him trying to focus on Congressional questioning for more than 2mins… And what did you do?
            LOL
            You immediately turn to talking about the Clinton’s.

            I wonder why?
            Is it because it distracts from the complete sh1tstorm that President F**kface Von Clownstick is literally helping to fall on his head?
            Is it because you also agree that President Dumbass would last all of 4 mins in front of Congress under oath before putting himself in jail?
            Is it because you have no hope of defending anything in Comey’s testimony?

            Of course, your case is not helped by spouting Fox News zombie lies, referring everyone to a fringe right wing nut job “News” site as if that is actually remotely factual, and “reframing” Comey’s actions into something weird so you don’t feel like you’re a traitor….
            It’s almost like you haven’t bothered to read any real news for years…

            Have you noticed, for example, that:
            – No-one (except Trump) disputes that he dangled Comey’s job in return for Comey’s personal loyalty?
            – No-one disputes that Trump called or met with the FBI Director 9 times in 4 months.
            – No-one (except Trump) disputes that Trump asked for the investigation into Flynn to be ended after forcing everyone else out of the room first? A clear indication THAT HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS ABOUT TO DO WAS ILLEGAL.
            – Trump talked about Comey in the media FIRST. He defamed Comey and the FBI FIRST. He made this all public FIRST. And lied about it and why he fired Comey. All in the court of public opinion. If you think Comey, a private citizen, sharing his own memory of events (as a memo or as a statement) without any classified information included can be classified as illegal or a “leak” when Dirty Donnie has defamed him and peed the story all over the media already… then you’re a moron… There is zero legal basis for that point of view. (On top of that: Comey was a Prosecutor. You can bet he knew what he was doing.)

            And after all this, the best defenses that the GOP have come up to defend President Pinhead are:
            1) He’s too ignorant of the rules/incompetent to know what he was doing was illegal. – Paul Ryan
            (Hint: He asked people to leave the room… He knew it was illegal.)
            2) He’s was doing it for a friend and used “a light touch” so obstruction of justice is ok. – Republicans in the hearing
            (Hint: It’s not)

            Your astroturfing efforts are more farcical, than remotely effective.
            I do love the displacement though:
            “The more Dems talk the tighter their noose becomes. :)”
            – RichfromDumbass

            That’s hilarious.

            What do you think the Dems are being investigated for, “Rich”? What noose are you referring to, again?

            Do you know why it’s displacement?
            Because if I fix it for you:
            “The more Trump talks the tighter the noose becomes. :)”
            It fits perfectly. That’s classic displacement.

            Guess who is under Investigation, Rich? :O

            And while that Investigation has been ongoing, Trump has lied repeatedly… publicly saying that “no-one in his campaign had contact with the Russians.”
            Since then nearly everyone in his campaign has personally ADMITTED they had contact with the Russians.
            – Sessions has recused himself. Lied to Congress (which can be a crime). Lied on his Security application (which is a federal crime).
            – Flynn has been fired and then exposed as also working for Turkey without declaring it. Lied on his Security application.
            – Page is possibly already being charged.
            – Manafort is under investigation and was under investigation before he even joined the Trump Clown Car.
            – Kushner tried to set up a secret Russian backchannel (a dubious move), and had a meeting with the head of the Russian National Bank… Hmmmm…. Now if he talked about the campaign it’s a form of treason… If he talked business… then it’s a Federal Crime because that bank is under American sanctions.

            What do you think he talked about in that meeting, “Rich”? Food and wine? Unicorns?

            Don’t worry, cupcake…
            As Dirty Donnie goes down in flames, largely due to his own inability to control himself…. I’ll be here.

            Rubbing it in your face.

            In the meantime, please keep posting your weird amusement at me accurately labeling you, your alternative facts, your right wing nut sites, and your paid astroturfing drivel.

            Unfortunately, and as usual, you conveniently forget that you are the one who brought up Clinton’s testimony “Clinton did it for 12 hours in front of the Benghazi investigation”. Now, isn’t that impressive . . . you forgot her passing out spells and the doctor who escorted her nearly everywhere to keep her “in motion”.

            President Trump, during the political season was in constant motion, held many multiples of “the witch’s” Fake News meetings, with crowds that were 1/10 or less than those of Trumps. You might ask . . . so what does this prove . . . well, it proves who was the most favorable candidate for the taxpayers of America . . . . I know, I know . . . you will cite her majority of the popular vote, but without the illegal voting and “purchased” votes she wouldn’t have that majority . . . but, as usual, the Constitution is correct. 🙂

            I find it useless to continue responding to your vacuous ramblings, punctuated with foul language, which seems to be your forte, so this seems like an appropriate time to end this “conversation”. Hopefully, you will acknowledge the facts when they are displayed in front of you . . . . but, as a Snowflake-in-Training, you probably never will.

            LOL You rancid astroturfing sell out.

            Thanks for the stupid straw men you propped up there but they are all as deluded as yourself….

            Would you like an example?
            You spewed:
            “President Trump, during the political season was in constant motion, held many multiples of “the witch’s” Fake News meetings, with crowds that were 1/10 or less than those of Trumps.”

            My actual point was (feel free to refer to my original post which is only a few steps up since you appear incapable of remembering):
            President 5-Year-Old couldn’t handle a congressional hearing for 4 mins without perjuring himself due to ignorance, idiocy, narcissism, compulsive lying and ADHD whereas Clinton answered questions for 12 hours in an antagonistic congressional committee investigation without a misstep or any charges being laid.

            Your straw man was a combination of the “Hillary is ill” Fox News talking point (While ignoring the obvious FACT of her publicly observable stamina and mental clarity in that Congressional meeting) and pretending that Trump’s “ability” to stand for an hour, ranting random word salad in front of deplorable morons with IQs too low to understand he isn’t talking in full sentences… and decidedly NOT under oath… somehow proves he has more stamina than Hillary…..
            And then, on top of that, acting like that somehow answers my point….

            If you don’t understand that you constantly avoid the point, because you are unable to either think about it, or refute it then you’re either criminally stupid, or have some serious issues with critical thought.

            If, as I suspect, you are quite aware that you are diverting and avoiding, and creating straw men, and pretending you’ve somehow made a valid point… then f**k you, RichFromDumbAss. Your rampant distraction, and mealy-mouthed half-lies add nothing to this forum, and paint you as pushing a gutless agenda based around being the fat orange snowflake’s chief apologist.

            You have no facts.
            You run from the facts.

            You post right wing fringe nutjob links.
            And you froth and gurgle and spew garbage that barely makes grammatical sense.

            It’s no wonder you’re a Trump Astroturfer.
            It’s a perfect fit.

            I’m going to block you now.
            I feel I fully understand your limited intellect and bankrupt moral fiber and your willingness to pee all over your country if it annoys liberals and keeps your party in power…
            And, quite frankly, your degree of purposeful distraction and calculated lying is turning out to be rather nauseating.

            I wonder if it’s uncomfortable typing with Trump’s d1ck so far down your throat? I also wonder how you’re going to feel when he goes to jail? :O

            Dear boy, while I empathize with you, I find that one detracts from one’s argument when one uses less than polite wordage. I find that dealing with people like RFSM is an art form. RFSM obviously has an IQ less than his shoe size and is also less than proficient in critical thinking and has forgotten his schooling on American Civics or whatever you guys call it.

            My tactic in dealing with these RWNJs is to use big(ly) words such as instead of ‘dumb’ use ‘less than proficient’ or if one wants to be a wee bit cruder ‘mouth in gear, brain in neutral’ often suffices.

            Also if one can put an Upper Class English Accent onto one’s verbiage then one gets a rather speedy irate reaction from said RWNJ.

            And Old Chap, as you will no doubt attest to, an UCEA tends to drive you Amurricans spare.

            About Trump and his family siphoning off wealth, I think he has always expected to be impeached, even hoped for it, because he hates the work of being president so much. But Trump intends to cream off as much loot as possible before stepping down. That is why in January, right after his inauguration, his administration had the State Department investigating what would go into lifting sanctions on Russia. Trump and his cronies with deep business ties to Russia (like Wilbur Ross and Rex Tillerson) mean to reap a huge Bonanza of fossil fuel wealth when sanctions are lifted so Russia can drill and sell its arctic petroleum resources. That is why alternate energy sources must not be developed: They need to cash in on fossil fuels first, the atmosphere be damned.

        SCOTUS has ruled that sitting Presidents do have to testify in criminal actions.

        Now I would pay to see Trump take a polygraph test. Trump under oath would rival the Super Bowl of TV ratings.

            And now he’s intimating that he actually HAS tapes of his conversations that he’s going to present “in a couple of days,” much like the proof he had that President Obama was wiretapping him…..sure you do, idiot……if you have tapes, trot them out. Apparently, Comey isn’t concerned and would actually LOVE for you to play them!

            If he has any tapes, I would expect Trump to try to have them sanitized. Maybe his Hollywood Secretary of the Treasury can help him out with that. His problem is that the experts in detecting this kind of manipulation work for the FBI and CIA, two groups Trump has effected alienated. As an ignoramous and reality TV celebrity, Trump is ripe to be led down the garden path by patriots in the intelligence community intent on bringing him down, not just here in the U.S. but among our allies.

      Because they have spent since 1980 trying to figure out their place in the Universe. After being the Party of No from 1994 to 2000, to being the Presidential Rubber Stamp Party from 2001 to 2008, back to being the Party of No between 2009 and 2016, they are not sure what they are supposed to do during this Administration. After all, if any of them were to say word one against the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue (well, at least for 3-4 days each week, that is) he has already promised that he will fund Primary Challengers against anyone opposed to him.
      That’s one promise he may actually keep, especially as he can probably count on the unlikely alliance between the Freedom Caucus (backed by the Koch family money) and the Democrats to oppose him. The Democrats because what he proposes is too draconian, and the FC because it isn’t draconian enough! Yep. Politics sure does make strange bedfellows.

        Old Chap, you seem to have engaged mouth before putting your brain in gear. Given your obvious lack of educational proficiency I will attempt to explain this to you in words of two syllables or less

        Hillary did lead in the polls, she won the popular vote by about 3 million votes. (Granted she did not win the Electoral College.)

        Polling by its nature polls people and not necessarily people who vote. Given that in the US (and Britain) one is lucky to get a 50% turnout to vote, this automatically makes polling before the actual election highly susceptible to major swings and thus invariably often inaccurate.

        in Australia where we have 99% turnout at elections (compulsory voting) our polling is largely very accurate.

        Dear boy, I do hope you have now been better informed than you were prior to our conversation.

          If one excludes CA, the President Trump wins the popular vote by 1.5 million. The pollsters have been at this for decades and know now to allow for registered voters vs likely to vote voters. While not an exact science, they know quite well what to expect. The real problem is that the pollsters published FAKE poll results. In fact, HilLIARy admitted that she even paid for a fake poll showing her leading by a large amount. Why would they publish fake polls? To discourage President Trump voters from actually going out and voting. It’s a well know ruse to try and sway an election.
          Thus your comments provided no clearer information and demonstrated your lack of real world knowledge.

          Here are two things even those of us, who do not have bags of money to throw around, can do right now to save our democracy from the likes of Trump and the Republicans who have taken his idiotic loyalty oath:

          We can register voters. Hard to believe, there are still many voters who are not registered, especially among the young.

          We can cultivate good candidates for office, up and down the ticket, for local, state, and federal elections. Special attention must be paid to state and local elections that determine who shall determine state and federal legislative districts after the 2020 census.

          We have to make sure that old Wilbur “Bank of Cyprus” Ross at the Department of Commerce does not interfere with the census in any way. All we need is for the same party that gerrymandered many house districts to find a way to actually distort the census itself. I once heard him claim that as a boy he worked on the census–so Democrats have to watch the conduct of the 2020 census very closely. I’m afraid that one of the only ways to do this is via planting computer-literate demographic experts to keep an eye on this process from within. Another way to ensure the legitimacy of the census is to work as census takers ourselves.

            Thank you for your reply. I had not read about these threats, but they do not surprise me in this political climate.

            These threats are part and parcel with the current move among the gun lobby in states like Texas to alter Conceal and Carry laws in such a way as to remove ANY regulations: Anyone can carry a concealed weapon, no qualifications required. So I ask myself, after a crazed gunman opened up on Republicans at baseball practice, how’s that working out for the party that harbors the NRA?

            They pledge loyalty to a president who condones violence against protesters at his campaign rallies and shouts of “Lock her up!” He’s embarrassed them repeated here in the U.S. and overseas with his ingratiating behavior toward strong men dictators, including Putin. With Trump’s popularity plummeting, Republicans have crossed the thin line that separates loyalty to a tyrant and desperation. What has propelled them across the line into desperate behavior is fear–and somewhere inside they must realize it is fear based on cowardice.

            The Republicans behind these threats against Democrats running against them in state and local races must be shown up for what it is: cowardice, plain and simple. The DNC must be prepared to give people who are not wealthy enough to lawyer up and confront this cowardice decent cover, the help of lawyers and the resources to expose these threats for what they are: The final recourse of that class of Americans Donald Trump hates: losers.

            I should have said I no longer have friends who could have possibly voted for trump. Those in the family who didn’t vote for Obama have expressed either on social media or through word of mouth that they weren’t supporting trump either. I wouldn’t know otherwise because we don’t discuss politics given our known differences.
            When Obama was elected we either parted ways permanently or distanced ourselves from each other mutually.
            I requested, quite politely that we agree to disagree, not discuss politics and that they not send me their hate filled rhetoric when they hit send all. I wasn’t responding in kind and mostly ignoring it except in instances where the content was completely false and then I responded with links to facts. I resisted snark in light of the fact we were friends or family. Some chose not to respect that request and even escalated the volume of crap and that I took personally. I blocked them but told them first I was doing so. In person, they didn’t have the same nerve.
            There’s a difference between having conflicting opinions and vastly different core values. It made me very sad to find out how very different we were after thinking we knew each other. I was finding it harder and harder to bite my tongue Now I don’t. Period. We have an idiot president America Taliban VP and a variety of white nationalists.white supremacists, neo-nazis and potential traitors in this administration.

          48 crooks and liars went to prison in as the result of their participation in the Watergate scandal. I’m wondering if Pence has lied under oath already or may, given the level of his stupidity and inflated ego. This is one reason for spending our blood and treasure on taking over the House and Senate in 2018, so that a Democrat (as Speaker of the House) falls into the line of succession.
          If Republicans were not dumb as a bucket of rocks they would see the value of decanting Trump and his cohorts via impeachment before the 2018 election to protect this line of succession. I think the display at the Cabinet meeting yesterday was one part to show that Trump’s chosen were all willing to take the loyalty oath that Comey refused to take; and one part to show that we could not count on these sycophants to act on the 25th amendment and make Trump step down because he was too badly incapacitated to continue serving as president. At that meeting, they were pledging, like rats, to go down with him instead of jumping ship.

      Why do shows like American Idol spend precious TV minutes on the losers as well as the winners? Because ratings build up as much (or more, in Trump’s case) from the accumulation of hate-watchers as from the knuckle-draggers among Trump’s dim-witted loyalists.
      One problem for Democrats fed up with hate-watching this debacle is that if we turn away, Trump and his minions get away with moral, ethical, and criminal behavior–and they know it. As exhausting as it is to watch Trump while despising him and his spokespersons so intensely, it is our responsibility, if we love our country, and the responsibility of both the press covering Trump and the representatives of the justice department investigating him. Sunlight is the best sanitizer, as the saying goes, but we must keep our eyes open.

        El Trumpo has accomplished nothing during his first four months in office. That is, unless you consider the layoffs at GM, Kellogg, and Verizon evidence of job creation, if you think that denying healthcare to those who cannot afford high premiums is evidence of social responsibility and humanity, if you think that withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord is evidence of commitment, responsibility, and vision.

          One thing Trump did accomplish in his first four months, he provided an object lesson in the perils of nativist politics for voters in Europe who had the wisdom to defeat Le Penne and Teresa May. Like Teresa May, Trump has failed spectacularly to align his party behind him, so that his legislative agenda is floundering so badly that the Trumpcare debate itself has actually made Obamacare more popular with the American public.

            Teresa May ignored the appeal of social programs, especially in a country like the UK, and she paid dearly for her mistake. I think it is also important to note that her opponent’s decision to embrace discourse similar to Bernie Sanders had tremendous support among young Brittons. Including his promise to make higher education free. I wonder, however, if Trump supporters share some of the sentiments that contributed to the conservative debacle in the UK…

            If you mean those who switched sides (from traditionally liberal to conservative) to topple the applecart by electing May and voting in Brexit, I think we agree. But these same disruptors may, like their American counterparts, have taken no such loyalty pledge to her or to her party.

            Interesting to recall that slavery was first condemned most forcefully in Europe (and as I recall Great Britain), evidence of the fierce streak of liberalism that drives through British philosophy and public sentiment. I think this liberal tendency derives not only from the agonizing legacy of the conflict between Protestants and Catholics throughout the history of the U.K., but from the heightened awareness of social inequality that is fed, even today, by the country’s retention of the royal family and all its accoutrement.

            I studied in England for a year as an undergraduate. I found my peers more resigned to social inequality than their American counterparts but no less aggravated by it. Perhaps because they view social inequality as a fact of life, they pursue their private lives with a greater ferocity, as evidenced by the tumult that sometimes erupts at football matches. Their parliamentary form of democracy feeds this volatility by providing for snap elections like the last one and almost daily debate within their House of Commons and House of Lords. Their elected leaders are always having to defend what they do vocally themselves–no hiding behind spokespersons and half-truths like our president on Twitter.

            Thank you for the well written and accurate response to my post. As you know, this is not the first time the British have elected a conservative Prime Minister (Margaret Thatcher comes to mind), and the Tories enjoyed a majority in the Parliament. I suspect the British middle class is experiencing the same uncertainties that prevail in most developed countries, and sometimes opt for change in the search of a solution of a problem that goes well beyond politics, and that is not going to be solved as easily as some people think. My one-year experience in England was very enjoyable and rewarding, and exposed struggle of so many people worldwide as they struggle to overcome challenges associated with issues such as robotics, high educational expectations by many employers, and the effects of globalization. That struggle is more pronounced in the UK, France, Germany, and the Scandinavian countries where there is widespread support for social programs designed to improve quality of life, and contribute to greater equality, than it is in the USA where a large segment of our population still supports trickle down economics, and budget reductions that, if implemented, will have a tremendous negative impact on the lower middle class, the poor, seniors, children, and those afflicted by debilitating illnesses.

            I hope this question is not too trying or wrongheaded. If it is, I don’t mean it that way: You say that the struggle in Europe is more pronounced than it is in the U.S., when it comes to coping with “robotics, high educational expectations by many employers, and the effects of globalization,” despite the social safety net on which working class Europeans can rely. That seems counter-intuitive to me, because Americans must cope with these uncertainties without being able to depend on a social safety net.

            I suppose you may mean that having a base level of one’s needs met does not preclude ambition. For example, the summer vacation extravaganza will soon be underway in France, where members of all but the lowest social classes will take a whole month off, either July or August. When they go “en vacance,” they will be served by the millions of Europeans who support tourism in Europe by working in the service economy, for whom a one-month paid vacation is still a luxury. The harsh division between the upper classes in Europe and the lowest is on full display in the summer.

            I liken the glaring display of this harsh division in Europe to the contrast between the expanse of gleaming skyscrapers along the Gold Coast in Chicago and the long, gray stretches of ghettos that abut the Gold Coast to its south, west, and near north. The ladders are just not there to provide for most ghetto residents to cross the divide. Are you suggesting that in the U.S. despair tends to blunt the kind of outrage felt by members of the working class in Europe? I admit it is possible.

On our days off, we take care of our yards, we paint our houses, work on our cars, and do a number of things that most Europeans would not even consider. In addition to their traditional one-month vacations, most of them go out almost every evening to have a drink at a local sidewalk cafe, on weekends they head for the countryside, and when their condos need repair, they call a journeyman. We live to work, they work to enjoy life. Obviously, there are other issues, such as willingness to pay taxes to get social benefits designed to improve quality of life, but generally speaking our approach to life is on the opposite ends of the spectrum.

            They accept the fact that there are no free rides, and that if we want programs that benefit our well being we have to pay for them. The GOP answer to that is either charge it, or get rid of the programs.

            Trickle down economics proved to be a disaster when President Reagan tried it, and when President Bush tried it. Relying on rosy scenarios to pretend that reductions in revenue don’t mean anything is dangerous.

            I don’t think that Bernie Sanders, running for the presidency, helped anything. It caused a lot of friction when Hillary was elected the primary candidate for the Democrats…..many of his voters failed to go to the polls and vote because they didn’t particularly like Hillary…..but, this was the problem that gave us Trump!!!

            There is no doubt in my mind that the Sanders factor was an important contributor to Hillary’s defeat. Especially, because many of his supporters chose not to vote. That does not mean, however, that he is not articulating a narrative that appeals to most Democrats and some Independents.

          If President Trump has accomplished nothing (as your fake claim says), they why are you Dems running around and squirming so badly? It’s because President Trump has just about wiped out all of obozo’s “legacy” in his first 4 months in office! And he did it with just a phone and a pen, the same way obozo put his terrible policies into affect. obozo knew he’d never get his crap passed. He never tried to ratify the Paris fiasco and thus made it far too easy for President Trump to pull us out of the worst policy since obozocare – which is collapsing under it’s own crap.

      The fight was so unequal between Risch and Comey that it was downright embarrassing to watch. Only fools and sadists take pleasure in a fight if it is not between equals. That was one moment when Comey tried his best not to take advantage of his obvious superiority to Risch: As a former prosecutor, Comey knows that showing up a weak opponent cannot help him win, in the long run. Comey held back in the same way when John McCain became disoriented during his questioning. Comey never dropped his stance of solid respect for McCain, even when it became a stretch to come up with appropriate responds to McCain’s incoherent questions. These two examples offered strong evidence of how devastating Mueller’s case will be against Trump and his associates, drawing as it will on seasoned experts from the intelligence community Trump has alienated and disaffected members fired by Trump from the Department of Justice.

    What gets me is the idiotic tweet today about “vindicated” and “Comey is the LEAKER!”. Yet other leaks have occurred after Comey’s firing that Comey could not have done.
    And today Trump’s personal attorney stated he will file a “complaint” against Comey and the Committee. As one legal analyst stated, “File it to whom, the attorney is not a government employee, nor is he in the Justice Dept, Comes is not working for the government now?” There is no place he can file it, unless Trump wants to sue Comey, which would be a terrible idea because of all the disclosure needed.
    I watched and/or listened to most of the hearing. Rich’s lame attempts to thwart anything were only slightly better than McCain’s apparent lack of understanding just what investigation was being discussed let alone the fact the two he mentioned were not the same issue!
    The Republicans tried various word games, but the real aspect of what is happening was not revealed in the PUBLIC hearing and could not be. Come told them as much several times.

      If one were to listen only to Trump’s protectors–every GOP member of Congress–one would assume that Comey had said, “The FBI has NOT investigated the President and has come to the conclusion that the President is completely innocent of any and all crimes and that he has absolutely nothing to do with Russians. Former Director Comey said so, but he’s a liar. Uh, that is, he’s a liar when he talks about the President’s hope about laying off Flynn, but he’s totally truthful about the President’s innocence, even though he didn’t say the President is innocent. Oh, and he lied about Hillary Clinton’s innocence in the email scandal, and his revelations about that had nothing to do with the President’s election. But the President is totally vindicated, and Comey is a leaker, but he leaked lies, but he’s still a leaker. Benghazi.”

    Trump’s pressure on him was improper at best. Still, as Comey admitted, he might well have pushed back harder. But it is ridiculous for the Republicans to suggest that because he didn’t instantly report Trump’s improper conduct as a potentially impeachable offense, to either the Attorney General or the Congress or both, /// are you kidding me report it to the AG ? the AG is one of the DUMPSTERS cult members if DONNY told the AG to drink the COOL-AID he would in a sec.

            SInce you have no Religion, it’s foolish of you to weigh in on Religion or be qualified to say whose religion is fake and whose religion isn’t. All Religions, O ignorant one, emanate from God. Therefore, on close investigation by any intelligent and unbiased mind, one would be able to determine which “religion” is fake, and which isn’t. As Jesus said, in Matthew 7:16-20, by their fruit you will know them. You know that passage, right?

            If not, here’s the text:

            ————————————————————————–

            16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

            17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

            18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

            19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

            20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
            ————————————————————————–

            Your ignorance of your own Religion, or the religion of your household, is astounding for an adult. At least Trump claims to have a Religion, but we don’t see any evidence of that. And because Trump claims such, he is in a better frame of mind than you, and that should cause you to shudder with terror.

            You and Alain are the most ignorant and boorish fellows I’ve ever encountered. As such, the two of you should be preserved as wax figures in a museum of humans who never evolved fully to become fully human.

            Still projecting your own faults on others, I see.
            You were “right” about the polls being “Fake” and the Supreme Court’s decision? WOW! Such wisdom.
            Your faults do not make me look like anything – except in your fevered excuse for a mind – except someone who has no intention of wasting time refuting your lies and pathetic delusions. Go ahead and try to convince yourself that you’re not as sadly malicious, insecure, ignorant, and infantile as the man you helped to elect; you certainly haven’t a prayer of convincing anyone else.

            So I post true statements time after time and you just can’t seem to handle that I’ve been right and you’ve been wrong! Talk about projection!
            You low information sheep just keep believing the FAKE MSM lies and then wonder why you’re so disappointed in the end.
            Now, even CNN is admitting that the Russia collusion story was BS, but now since the investigation has pointed back to obozo, it looks like he’ll end up having to explain why he allowed it to happen. Did he really want President Trump to win? Wow, what a blow to you egos that will mean!

            You’re as clueless as ever on the subject of racism, its meaning, and when and how to use the term properly. Are you afflicted with the same malignancy of the mind as soul as Trump? Do you still have a soul to speak of, or do you care?
            I suggest you return to a local high school and see if they can enroll you in a special ed program for adults who never mastered secondary school topics.

        I’m sorry “InformedVoter” but drumpf IS not only a LIAR – he’s MUCH WORSE – he’s a TRAITOR. How can you defend anyone that plays with the Russians? Surely you know how the Russian people live? Putin has everything and the people of Russia have nothing! He’s a horrible man & drumpf loves him. Surely you know drumpf will only help the RICH get richer & the rest of us will get poorer. He is the WORST thing to ever happen to America!

          You are poorly informed. Under obozo’s 8 years, the top 1% got way richer and the bottom 20% became way poorer. As President Trump stated in his campaign message “the Dems have screwed you and lied to you, so what have you got to lose?” That message resonated with the voters. The Dems concentrated on who was using what bathroom and forgot about the working class voters.
          Now that Comey has shredded the Russia collusion “scandal” you can keep shouting Russia did it, but no one will be listening, except low information sheep like you.

Speaking of being “misinformed,” it is highly unlikely we ever had anyone close to being as much a fount of misinformation and “fake news” as you, except “Obozomustgo,” to whose posts yours seem eerily familiar (are you he?).

            More recently, I posted that the SCOTUS would uphold the travel ban. Once more you low information sheep called me a liar. So how did that work out for you?

            What a surprise that the Supreme Court – which idiots like you control – upheld Trump’s racist, self-serving, and hypocritical travel ban: no country with which he does business was included, including the worst of all, US “ally” Saudi Arabia.
            Yes, I’m SOOOOO impressed with your foresight in predicting that the court would vote as they did, but obviously not nearly so impressed as you are with yourself.

You predicted that President Trump would NOT be the GOP candidate. You predicted that HilLIARy would not only win, but win in a landslide. You predicted that the SCOTUS would strike down President Trump’s travel ban.

            We have to put up with this for at least four years: don’t count on someone beating Trump next time around; the repugs in all the states they control will be sure to make it as difficult as possible for their political opponents to vote, and we can count on Trump’s Supremes to uphold these laws this time, not to mention that if there weren’t a LOT of idiots able to vote, we wouldn’t have the problem in the first place. You might as well get what laughs you can from it. If you want to get angry, think of all those likely Dem voters who stayed home last November; I definitely voted against the idiot, and for someone who should have had an excellent chance of winning by a landslide.
            So, thanks to them and the idiots, we can all live with the US’s finally having a government (almost) as bad as we as a country have deserved for years.

As President Trump lambasted former FBI director James B. Comey for engineering the release of details of their conversations to a news reporter, some legal experts say Comey was within his rights to reveal the information / of course the DUMPSTER is upset with not just Comey saying anything about what he says but DONNY makes every one sign disclosers contracts from every one he talks with . im surprised he dosent have his brain dead followers all sign those papers at one of his rally’s ! the clown been doing that all his life try’s to hide all his BULLSHIfT he speaks out knowing its all can be pretty much LIES / Trump accuses Comey of giving false testimony yes he can do that for the DUMPSTER is the KING OF false testimony so when he gives them he tends to miss understand that every one dose not do as he dose with the FALSE PART for his alone cuddles around being false always / Trump’s lawyer in Russia probe has clients with Kremlin ties and this should help who ? I don’t believe it will help the DUMPSTER ! just label’s the cult klan he hangs with . see the DUMPSTER is so deranged that he feels working from the other side of the fence will help him and be better for his team . he’s the king fool in his DONNY DUMP CLOWN SHOW LAND truly not of mind . then again at the end of it all he things that is his get out of jail free card being derange !

    Although Comey has added much to further destroy an already destroyed facsimile of a human, the GOP isn’t able to apprehend the full extent of Trump’s dire situation. A situation guaranteed to get worse, and the GOP is most likely willing to go down the drain to a cesspool with Trump.
    Such is the degree of rot that infests rigidly partisan extremists like the GOP, and should serve as a caution to those who are partisan towards another group not to allow themselves to become addicted as so many in the GOP have become.

    Now, as far as Trump being willing to testify under oath, this clearly will elicit smirks and winks from those in the know, knowing that telling a lie is a natural reflex action for Trump. Truth is merely a word with no meaning in Trump’s sparsely populated value system.
    Trump will lie regardless of swearing on the Bible. Why? For the simple reason that all sense of the importance of being truthful is totally alien to Trump, the consequences of committing a dishonorable act towards God is an abstract concept for Trump, easily dismissed, and meant to be acknowledged only to save his hide.
