Make No Mistake, James Comey’s Testimony Was A Disaster For Donald Trump
People can spin it all they want. People can pretend to be lawyers and argue about “lawyerly answers.” People can shout about leaks all the want. It’s not going to matter. Today was not a good day for President Trump no matter what comes of the Gorsuch hearings.
There were two major questions at stake today, and the answers to both steamroll President Trump’s rantings and ravings about them on Twitter and in public.
The first issue deals with the FBI, and whether or not they’re investigating Russian influence on the 2016 election including links to the Trump campaign and if those links included any criminal activity. President Trump tweeted this morning:
The second question goes back to Trump’s hysterical tweets about his phones being tapped inside of Trump Tower. Since making that initial allegation, he nor his team have backed off. They’ve adjusted their arguments to say Trump was talking about different kinds of surveillance and not just phone taps. After one week a media firestorm and a week of Republicans, including those from Congressional intelligence committees, saying there was no evidence to support the claims, James Comey confirmed Trump’s claims are bunk. When asked about the allegations in the Trump tweets, Comey replied, “I have no information that supports those tweets.”
