History, Precedent and Comey Statement Show that Trump Did Not Obstruct Justice

  • Thinking From First Principles

    I haven’t watched his testimony yet. But here is my reading on his written statement. “I hope you can let it go” … first replace “can” with it’s definition and reread it – “I hope you (are able to) let it go.” This logically equivalent to saying “I hope you (are not prevented from) let(ting) it go.” What would prevent that? If there was evidence of breaking the law. So Trump’s statement can be understood as saying “I hope that you (are not prevented by evidence of lawbreaking) from letting it go.” That would be an honest concern for someone you thought was an honorable person.

    • Good points.

      Assuming the quotes are accurate IMHO it’s obvious what Trump was saying was, “The Left-MSM-NeverTrumpers have their scalp—he’s withdrawn from the nomination—is there any point to continuing this witch-hunt when you damn well know the General isn’t and has never been a Russian agent?”

    He’s being a whiny bitch so far.

    Interesting that Comey stated that Obama’s attorney general told Comey not to call the investigation into Clinton’s emails an investigation but simply a matter. But I’m sure the media or politicians on the panel won’t pursue that.

      That’s already fallen into Don Lemon’s black hole.

    So far, it’s been all buzz and no sting.

    What little bit I watched, it was evident that he’s a whining bitch, being lead by the Dems on the committee.

  • Even Liberals are turning on Comey.

    • The Butterfly

      They were against him before they were for him before they were against him.

      • Clink9

        Is this John McCain?

  • Comey: “Russia interference in election very, very, very serious…an active measures operation going right to the top…employing many sophisticated tools…” etc.

    Yep, Jim, it was SO serious that you never even examined the hacked DNC computers, you never even looked at the most fundamental information that could either prove or disprove who hacked the DNC in the first place. And the DNC and Hillary refused to give the FBI access to that info so you could make an objective judgement as to the veracity of that claim, and more importantly that Trump and his campaign were somehow involved in the alleged Russian/DNC hack.

    This hearing is a farce. And Comey is incompetent. There never should have been a Russia investigation in the first place — at least in relation to the DNC hack, and definitely in relation to Trump and his campaign. Comey has made the FBI look like a bunch of clowns. The only “evidence” he had to justify a Russia/Trump investigation in the first place is: “Hillary and the DNC told me so”.

    Hillary didn’t like Trump’s idea that “Maybe we can cooperate with the Russians in the fight against ISIS”, so she decided that accusing Trump of being a Russian agent might obstruct that policy. And the FBI lapped up the scam like kittens at a bowl of milk. It was a defamation campaign against Trump, plain and simple.

    • Comey toasted hisself.

      • terrence22

        I think he is far to stupid to realize that he toasted hisself, just as CNN and many DUMBocRATS.

    • The Butterfly

      The actual veryness of something is inversely proportional to the number of verys used to describe it.

      • Clink9

        Very, very, very true.

  • Has his incompetence come up yet?

    • In so many words.

    • Clink9

      I didn’t know he pees himself as well.

      • That comes to me as a shock.

      • Clausewitz

        But only sitting, I’m figuring this fool doesn’t know how to pee standing up.

    • Clausewitz

      Well he did give evidence that he was responsible for a leak of a confidential conversation with the President. That alone should get him indicted. How much more incompetent can you be.
