Greg AtLast on Trump v Comey, #TrumpTrain and #Hillbots

Now we know why ex-Eff Bee Eye head Comey wouldn't tell Congresscritters that Trump impeded his probe.

Not only did that not happen, but given Comey's extended string of laughers today, he would have only further hoist himself by his own petard.

Today's highlights — other than learning that John McCain is more brain-dead than Dan Patrick after a hot day in the sun — include the two biggies:

First, Comey leaked emails to Columbia Law prof friend Daniel Richman to try to force appointment of a special counsel.

Second, Comey claims then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, after committing Tarmac with Slickster Bill Clinton last summer, pressured him to downplay his Hillary Clinton probe. YET, he did NOT leak emails at that time to force a special prosecutor call out of her.

That's called petard-hoisting. Especially when everybody is hurling obstruction of justice allegations at Trump and it's arguable Comey did the same thing, at least in letter if not spirit.

My thought is that Comey was trying to play both electoral ends against the middle from July on, rather than doing his job.

Of course, that means it's time for a quick visit from friend GregAtLast. Greg talks about Trump and Comey both being delusional, and how their delusions have infected many others.

With all this, Hillbots were shattered enough before over Comey. They might be jumping off bridges now. And, no, I didn't think there was a conspiracy behind Trump firing Comey a month ago. Still don't now. And I stand by Hillary causing this, Hillbots, even as Comey has shown himself less deserving than ever of sympathy. He's changed his story before; what's to say it won't happen again?

With clusterfucks like this, all Vladimir Putin has to do is stay out of the way.
