If it makes you feel any better, one week from right now....

...all the news is going to be about how Jim Comey just confirmed what we already knew but wanted to hear actually said, that Donald Trump attempted to obstruct the investigation against him.

I know, it's all a cold comfort knowing the damage the man has already incurred on us all. Still the thought of Trump shaking nervously is something that makes me feel a little better.

That there might be something to the Russia stuff. They might be incredibly naive, but I don't think they really like traitor activity. Stopping Comey would imo add more smoke to the fire.

9. Trump can't order Comey not to talk about non classified talks, since he fired Comey

Comey is a free agent so he can talk except about details that could compromise Mueller's Russian criminal investigation.

Also since Trump made derogatory comments impugning Comey's honesty, Comey is certainly entitled to defend himself and provide his side of story.

I don't trust Comey further than I can throw him, and I'll be holding my breath to see what happens.

After this past November, I don't take anything for granted.
