No Admittance to the Liar's Club

Do Americans believe that a career FBI professional and trained attorney from the University of Chicago is a liar? James Comey will not be admitted to the liar's club because he tells the truth. He even said that he leaked his private memo that contains no confidential information to the press via a surrogate, only after Trump defamed him. He did so because Trump is a liar and something untoward was happening between Trump and the Attorney General. The executive branch is corrupted and he acted to expose it. He called in-coming on his position, and it worked.

Now, a Special Prosecutor is on the case: the Russian attack on elections, and the possible collusion by Trump campaign associates, while pointing firmly to Trump himself.

President Trump lies much of the time, and that is a matter of record. Once a liar, he cannot be trusted or believed about anything. That is where we find ourselves as Americans. Until he is ousted, the government cannot be trusted.

So where do the hopes that James Comey cited yesterday, in his own utterances and in his reports of others’ speech, belong? 
As every scrap of James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee is pored over and picked apart, one word gleams brighter than any other. That word is “hope.” It is a common word, employable as both a noun and a verb, and it boasts an extraordinary breadth. We may say, “I hope to catch the 6:42 a.m.,” or “I hope the kids don’t catch a cold,” and, at the other end of the spectrum, Christians are exhorted to pray “for all who have died in the hope of the Resurrection.” So where do the hopes that Comey cited yesterday, in his own utterances and in his reports of others’ speech, belong?"

James Comey, an honest man.


  1. Republicans are trying to figure out a way past swirling questions about ties between the Trump administration and the Russian government, with GOP strategists calling the investigation and surrounding controversies a public relations nightmare that has dragged on for too long.

    Former FBI Director James Comey did not inflict any deadly blows against President Trump when he testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Republicans believe, but they’re concerned there will be more damaging revelations in the weeks ahead.

  2. Some of my friends know well that James Comey made some poor decisions in the course of his tenure and that inflicted damage to Hillary Clinton. Still, he appears to be truthful when asked about his actions. Glad to see him out, though also pleased to see Trump on the hook.

    Trump: I'm '100%' willing to testify under oath

    Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara on Sunday said he thinks there is evidence to start an obstruction of justice case against President Trump.

    "I think there's absolutely evidence to begin a case -- I think it's very important for all sorts of armchair speculators in the law, to be clear that no one knows right now whether there is a provable case of obstruction," he said on ABC's "This Week."

    "It's also true...that there's no basis to say there's no obstruction."

    Bharara also said during the interview that there is sworn testimony that "on at least one occasion, the president of the United States, cleared the room of his vice president and his attorney general and told his director of the FBI that he should essentially drop the case against his former national security advisor."

    "Whether or not that is impeachable or that's indictable, that's a very serious thing and I'm not sure that people fully get that the standard is not just whether something is a crime or not," Bharara, who was fired by Trump, said.

    "Whether or not it can be charged as a crime or Congress will impeach, it is a very serious thing."

    Bharara said there is a lot to be "frightened" and "outraged" about.

    "That's an incredibly serious thing if people think that the president of the United States can tell heads of law enforcement agencies, based on his own whim or his own personal preferences or friendships, that they should or should not pursue particular criminal cases against individuals," he said.

    "That's not how America works."
