As the political theater continues south of our border, lurching toward a constitutional crisis, everybody is weighing in, asking every conceivable question, offering every conceivable opinion.
For part of this though, at least when it comes to Donald Trump, we need but listen closely.
Did he ask Comey if he, Donald J. Trump, was under investigation?
Did Comey answer?
Is any of this normal, ethical, proper? Might it even be obstruction of justice?
Is it true?
Listen and read carefully.
The truth, I think, lies in his use of the modifier ‘three’. As in “three times” Comey told him he was not under investigation.
This is not something he should have asked the Chief investigator of himself and his cronies, and the Chief investigator should not have answered. But did this actually happen even once?
The “three times” wording indicates the whole thing is a simple lie. A childish lie. An unnecessary embellishment. The kind of embellishment and exaggeration a child uses to sell his lie.
It is the kind of embellishment and gross exaggeration Trump always uses to sell his lies. “You know it, I know it, everybody knows it.”
As I have said before, during the impeachment process please take away the nuclear codes.
And this morning, it was suggested that Trump may be intimidating a witness http://www.politicususa.com/2017/05/12/donald-trump-intimidate-witness-threat-james-comey.html
