TELL US THE STORIES

Good morning Wonkers! Are you ready for fired FBI director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is the only Christmas we may get this year, considering how Donald Trump is still president of America and we wouldn’t put canceling Christmas past him, because of how he’s a dick? Good! Brian Williams is bothering us on the MSNBC for whatever reason with his “special coverage,” yr Wonkette has purchased all the supplies (liquor and gourmet deli breakfast items) necessary to liveblog this at you for as long as it takes, and James Comey just got picked up at his house in McLean, Virginia, so he can come to the Senate and do BOMBSHELLS. Or maybe he won’t do bombshells. Who knows?

We saw Comey’s opening statement Wednesday afternoon, and it tells us the basic plot points of how Trump tried to move on him inappropriately, in a justice-obstructing way, though he didn’t use those EXACT words. If you haven’t read it yet, CATCH UP, BOZO.

The RNC has released talking points to rebut Comey’s testimony, because obviously this is a political campaign event for the president, and also the president is a liar, so we can’t just let a career public servant testify about his interactions with the president without having TALKING POINTS against it.

On that same note, here is the very dumb and hilarious anti-Comey ad that will be running today during the hearing. It was released by the “Great America Alliance,” some Trump-fellating super PAC full of IQ-deficient loons, because at least for today, it’s CAMPAIGN SEASON, and James Comey is playing the role of “Hillary Clinton Democrat Devil,” which is kind of funny considering Comey’s history, isn’t it?

As for the president’s own personal feelings about Comey’s testimony, we can only assume that he has shit one thousand spray-tanned bricks this morning. Will he tweet? WE SURE HOPE SO! Kellyanne Conway, Lady Mike Huckabee, Sean Spicer — whoever stoled the president’s phone and threw it in the Reflecting Pool out by Lincoln Memorial, FISH IT OUT.

Here’s the official statement from Trump lawyer Marc Kasowitz:

TOTALLY VINDICATED! Of course all Comey told Trump at the time was that he wasn’t the subject of a counter-intelligence investigation, and he didn’t comment on whether Trump was the subject of a criminal investigation. Also, Comey’s previous assurances may no longer be true. But anyway, WINNING!

And here’s what Michael Cohen, that other creepy Trump lawyer, has to say about it:

Haha, what a fucking loser. When exactly was the entire dossier debunked by Christopher Steele? Oh that’s right, it wasn’t, and much of it has actually been confirmed. SAYS WHO?

OK here is your livestream video, for watching James Comey:

And now we liveblog!

9:58: Oh hi, Preet Bharara! Wonder why he might want to be there, hmmmmm!

10:05: HELLO UNCLE JIM!

So much SERIOUS FACE.

10:09: In his opening statement, committee chair Republican Senator Richard Burr brings up Hillary Clinton’s emails, because #reasons.

10:13: Wonkette toddler human woman person baby is READY FOR COMEY DAY:

Right now committee vice chair Democratic Senator Mark Warner is listing everybody in Trump World who has ALREADY had to resign/get fired over ties to Russia.

10:19: NO FAKE NEWS, JIMBERLY.

Comey will not be reading his opening testimony, since everybody already knows it. Do you not know it? It is RIGHT HERE.

10:21: Here is part of the opening testimony! Comey is NOT happy with the way Trump has “defamed” the FBI, and he’s pretty confused following the bouncing ball of reasons Trump has given for firing him.

<

And now questioning has begun!

Burr asks whether anyone ever specifically asked him to stop the Russia investigation. The answer is nyet. He also says that WHEN HE LEFT, he had not seen specific evidence that Russia was successful in changing any votes in the election, though he has NO DOUBT that Russia was behind all of it.

10:34: By the way, since he has said it 86,000 times already, and since we did not make you a drinking game, when Comey says “confused and concerned” is when you DRINK!

10:37: Warner wants to know why Comey was so squicked out by his first all-by-myself meeting with Trump that he decided he had to write everything down. Comey answers that there were lots of reasons, and one of them is that he was “honestly concerned that he might lie about the nature of our meeting.” That’s right, before the inauguration, Comey had pegged Trump as a GODDAMNED LIAR.

10:41: Comey calls it “technically true” that there was not a counter-intelligence investigation into Donald Trump specifically. TECHNICALLY true. LITERALLY true. But … ya know.

Hey where’s Donald?

He’s got to be going CRAZY.

10:49: So here is an interesting thing! When Comey wrote his memo about his Valentine’s Day meeting with Trump at the White House, he specifically wrote it in such a way as to make sure it was unclassified, so it wouldn’t be hidden away like that. Your Uncle Jim is always thinking ahead!

10:52: More interesting stuff about that Oval Office meeting:

Senator James Risch, Idaho’s gift to the world, is trying to split hairs because Trump said “I hope” Comey would kill the Flynn investigation, as opposed to “please kill the investigation.” That’s right dumbass. Trump was just wishin’ and hopin’ and thinkin’ and prayin’, BUT HE CERTAINLY WASN’T ASKIN’.

10:54: FEINSTEIN: Do you believe Russia was part of why you were fired?

COMEY: Um yes he said it on television, did you not see that? It was on the television!

10:57: Referring to Donald Trump’s bullshit tweets about having “tapes” of their conversations, Comey says, “LORDY I HOPE THERE ARE TAPES!”

10:59: FEINSTEIN: Why did you tell Trump “we’ll see what we can do” about “lifting the cloud” off the investigation?

COMEY: I was trying to get off the fucking phone and I had already tried “new phone who dis?” and pretending we had gotten disconnected.

11:02: Oh look who DOES have his phone:

It was just “New York Talk,” like when you say “Nice FBI Director job you have there. HOPE nothing happens to it!”

Oh wait, the Trumps are thugs who are in bed with all sorts of unseemly types, the fact that he said “hope” actually seems worse than if a normal person said it.

11:08: More bullshit from the oldest broke-faced Trump son:

Donny Jr. KNOWS when Daddy is giving orders. When Donny Jr. gets orders from his Daddy and he doesn’t do them he gets beated on his bottom and sent to his room without Trump Taco Bowls. Daddy was not a good daddy for Donny. It is very :(

11:15: Comey just said he can’t talk about it in an open hearing, but there was a REASON he expected Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from the Russia investigation TWO WEEKS before he did it. Wonkette “Five Dollar Feminist,” chiming in at Wonkette HQ, says “See? The FBI does have something else on Sessions.”

11:17: SUSAN COLLINS: When you said Trump wasn’t under investigation, did you mean JUST in a counter-intelligence way?

COMEY: Actually he was TOTALLY freaking out about the Russian pee hookers thing, and I was trying to reassure him that we were not investigating him for Russian pee hookers. “Sir, we are not personally investigating you!”

In other words, Comey ain’t care if you like to get peed on, Mr. President.

11:21: Watch this watch this watch this:

 

Sessions is DIRTY. What a dirty, bad boy! What a MESSY ALABAMA DIRTY BOY!

10:27: We are just saying, but we kind of have a crush on Senator Heinrich of New Mexico.

Also, Comey just admitted he leaked the first story about his memos to the press through a friend. We all knew it, but it’s funny that he’s like “Yeah, DID THAT.”

11:32: Republican Senator Roy Blunt with JUST A VERY GOOD QUESTION:

“If the president hadn’t fired you, would you still be the FBI director?”

Um … well we guess he could have gotten cast as Eponine in the touring company of Les Misérables and said “fuck this FBI, I’m going to be a STAR,” but …

11:40: BLUNT: Wait, so you are the leaker.

COMEY: Of unclassified things about my own memos, nitwit.

BLUNT: Why didn’t you just give them to the press yourself?

COMEY: Seagulls at the beach.

BLUNT: What?

COMEY: Don’t worry about it.

11:41: Now it is time for independent Maine Senator Angus King. Remember yesterday in the hearing with Mike Rogers and Dan Coats, how Senator King was a BIG STAR?

King begins by asking about Trump’s claims from his NBC interview with Lester Holt. Comey is kindly explaining that everything Trump said is a giant fucking lie.

Also Comey wishes he hadn’t broken a date with his wife to have dinner with Trump that fateful night in January, because his wife is way cooler than Trump.

11:43: Comey says Trump’s “hoping” the FBI would kill the investigation into Flynn reminded him of “Who will rid me of this meddlesome priest?” and Angus King was like “I was going to say the ‘meddlesome priest’ thing!” And now everybody is laughing and laughing about a smart joke President Trump is too stupid to understand. (This is the back story on that, by the way.)

11:46: About whether ending the Flynn investigation would have impeded the Russia investigation, Comey says sorta kinda not really but yeah maybe. He said the investigations are “touching each other but separate,” by which he means the two investigations are NOT GAY FOR EACH OTHER.

11:55: Comey on why the investigation into Russian meddling is so important: He says we have this big messy wonderful country where we always fight, but (and we are paraphrasing slightly) “Nobody tells us what to think, what to fight about, what to vote for, except other Americans!”

Comey also just dared Trump to “release all the tapes” of their conversations, if such tapes exist. In exchange, Comey will release the Russian hooker pee tape HAHA JUST KIDDING, he didn’t say that! The pee hooker tape doesn’t exist! OR DOES IT?

12:03: Comey just had to adjust his chair all weird-like and he looked like a total dingus when he did it, so because Wonkette is a little shit, we screengrabbed it for you:

12:08: TOM COTTON: Do you think Michael Flynn ever lied to the FBI?

COMEY: Um, well, I don’t really want to talk about it, but that is actually the point of the investigation into Flynn.

12:10: Yay, it is time for Senator Kamala Harris, the amazing former prosecutor lady who will be president one day, oh yes she will! She thanks Comey for spending so much time talking to them, and he says he totally has time right now, due to fun-employed.

12:17: Oh forget these hearings, Drudge has SIRENS!!!! about the REAL NEWS of the MUSLIM INVASION:

Just kidding, back to our regularly scheduled programming.

12:20: Interesting exchange with Senator John Cornyn on HILLZ DEVIL EMAILS! He said actions taken by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch were uncomfortable and bad and contributed to why he became the public face of exonerating Hillary for her email crimes, and acknowledges that senators, including Cornyn, had called for a special prosecutor. But he says he ultimately decided that would be unfair because he “KNEW THERE WAS NO CASE THERE.” We examined that last summer in VERY MANY DETAIL!

12:32: John McCain is asking inane questions about the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Why is the Hillary investigation over but the Trump one isn’t? How does times work? John McCain has A Confuse and still has questions about Hillary. Why does the FBI not have A Confuse about Hillary?

John McCain is not a normal member of this committee, and he came in FOR SPECIAL to ask these questions.

12:35: SRSLY WTF IS JOHN MCCAIN TALKING ABOUT? He literally is trying to “both sides” Comey because the Hillary investigation was finished and done, whereas the Trump one was not. Is he having a stroke?

12:37: DOES JOHN MCCAIN THINK THE HILLARY EMAIL INVESTIGATION AND THE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION ARE THE SAME INVESTIGATION? HE LITERALLY JUST SAID HE THINKS THERE IS A “DOUBLE STANDARD.”

HENGGGGHHHHHHHH?

My friends, my friends, my friends...FIVE AND A HALF YEARS, ALAN
My friends, my friends, my friends…FIVE AND A HALF YEARS, ALAN

Also, McCain really wants to know that Trump meant when he said he and Comey had “that thing.” WALNUTS!!!1! would be very curious if one of his boyfriends said he had “that thing” with WALNUTS!!!!1111!

12:42: And now the public session is over and James Comey will go join the senators for Secretive Sexxxxy Time in a closed session. We learned some weird things today!

Quick takeaways:

  1. Comey didn’t use the words, but he laid out a case for obstruction of justice by Donald Trump, including the fact that Trump definitely fired him over Russia.
  2. There is SOMETHIN’ FUNNY AFOOT about why Attorney General Sessions recused himself when he did. Comey said the FBI had more information on that, but he couldn’t share it in an open session. He also said he couldn’t discuss things like whether Trump colluded with Russia an open session.
  3. John McCain may be in the process of having a stroke.
  4. Comey definitely absolutely certainly believes Donald Trump is a giant liar, and he thought so WAY BACK the first time he met with Trump.
  5. LORDY James Comey hopes Trump has tapes of their conversations.
  6. LORDY Donald Trump hopes Comey doesn’t have the pee tape.

      • tomamitai

        Look at what republicans said about Trump during the primaries, and then look at what they’ve said and done since he “won”. As long as he rubber-stamps whatever horrific abominations they put before him, they will smile and eat his shit.

      Like I pointed out yesterday, this isn’t Perry Mason. It’s not like after COmey’s testimony that anyone will go and arrest Trump. It’s going to take some time. Don’t forget that there is a special prosecutor on the case.

    • He’s not going to be in cuffs today, but this will not look good on him, regardless of how the ‘thugs try to spin it.

      • BigCSouthside

        Oh they are going to spin the shit out of it. Trump has NEVER made a mistake, and I think he actually believes that

        • He’s been told that he’s the best, smartest and biggest-dicked since he was a child, so he couldn’t POSSIBLY not believe it. Same reason his (elder) kids don’t think they’re ugly as sin.

    People please refrain from the “nothingburger Trump will get off” prediction. This isn’t a trial and there is a long way to go. What will matter is the court of public opinion and Trump is already crashing.

        i saw 34% somewhere yesterday.

    • ZangoCrudmonger

    • Claire

      He’s not crashing among Republican voters, and Republicans are the ones who would have to initiate impeachment at this point, not the court of public opinion.

      I get that you’re optimistic about this, but those of us who aren’t have a large number of very good reasons. It’s not because we’re happy doomsayers, it’s because we’re extrapolating from literally his entire life up until this point and also the current state of the Republican party.

      • Darlene Underdahl

        Big and brassy intimidates a lot of people, and it’s certainly worked all Trump’s life, but now he has the world against him.

        • Claire

          The world does not have the authority to remove an American president. Everyone on the planet could come stand outside the White House with torches and pitchforks, and if the Republicans in Congress don’t vote to impeach him or Amendment 25 him, he’s not going anywhere.

He’s fucking with us to create chaos that will benefit him. The business ties and money channels are just the bait Putin put on the hook. I almost can’t wait to watch these motherfuckers whine when he decides to fuck with them by stealing an election and handing it to the Democrats just to prove that he can and that he’s in charge. Will they find his assaults on our democracy so trivial then? No, they’ll shit bricks and the Democrats will refuse to accept a tainted presidency because they’re not craven scumbag Republicans.

      • BadKitty904

      • MassiveQuantitiesofPie

        It’s not about ‘going high’. They can’t (shouldn’t) bring Articles of Impeachment while an active investigation is ongoing and they don’t have all their evidence yet. We’re only going to get one shot at this. It’ll be an uphill battle as it is unless we have a killer 2018 election and take over both houses of Congress.

        If Republicans had any decency, patriotism, or sobriety left, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. But they don’t and unless the Dems get a big 2018 sweep, Dems need GOP votes at every step to gain House Judiciary Committee hearings and a filing of articles, a full floor vote for impeachment, prosecution of said impeachment, and several GOP Senate votes to convict and remove.

        If they go for it too early and fail, there will be no second chance.
        They’re best chance is waiting for Mueller to file his report and
        hopefully, he’ll strongly recommend criminal indictments and detail crimes that cannot be ignored no matter how much they try.

    Where are the right wing trolls telling me I’m stupid because I use naughty words? Also, if the election taught us anything it’s calm the fuck down and treat the dangerous animals with appropriate caution.

    Story time: About five years ago I was working at a baboon rehab facility which has eco tourists. Baboons are dangerous but the rules are pretty straightforward, even with wild ones (it’s mostly but not entirely about eye contact) so no one every got badly hurt. There was a chimpanzee facility that also had tourists, though, and those motherfuckers are dangerous and complicated socially. They had double barriers and lots of rules. You could stay safe but it took lots and lots of experience. So, one of the tourists ignored the rules, jumped the barriers, and sure enough, a chimp attacked him and ate one of his butt cheeks.

    Moral of the story: Watch out or Donald Trump will eat your butt.

      Leaving it to Mueller. Good.

  • Villago Delenda Est

    Flynn: GUILTY AS FUCK

  • Proud Liberal

    Damn. “Did anyone tell you to stop the Russia investigation?” Comey: “No.”

    Well fuck.

    • MynameisBlarney

      They probably asked him a few times though.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      Not in so many words, no.

    • BadKitty904

      “Tell you” is the key.

    • Claire

      Yep.

  • BadKitty904

    Turn over rocks, Jim…

  • Vincent Ricola

    “Very disturbing. Very concerning.”

  • Occupied Territory of Kavefish

    Yep – Comey not going to draw conclusions on Trump’s attempt to obstruct. Good move.

  • Skwerl the Taco Hunter

    He is holding his cards tight.

    • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

      reminds me of what lawyers tell witnesses – answer the question and no more.

      • Bobathonic

        I thought he had already had an interview with Mueller.

        • Ω cynmac will never surrender

          He has.

        • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

          eh, FBI guy…probably 2nd nature.

  • Phoenixdoglover

    Comey will walk the line, as he just did. He will not say Drumpf did something criminal. He will leave it up to Mueller.

    • BadKitty904

      And, annoying as it is, he’s right.

  • boredcatlady

    Nice.

  • Claire

    Oh shut up with your “personal pain,” Comey. You gave us Trump, I don’t want to hear about your fucking angst.

  • Elvis Causticfellow

    OK, that was a demerit.

  • Joe Beese

    “Release the Dossier!”

  • memzilla Ω

    Comey WOULDN’T CHANGE A WORD about what he’s said.

  • Pee hookers!!!

  • armed_bears

    Disqus is not up to the challenge.

    • Villago Delenda Est

  • Fitzgerald Chesterfield

  • memzilla Ω

    “COLLUSION!” DRINK!

  • Occupied Territory of Kavefish

    His “I can’t answer that” is a lot more polished than from yesterday’s losers.

    • puredog

      Well, he has a good excuse for not answering questions. Yesterday’s bastards were just straight up in contempt of Congress, and if the panel had any balls they would have gone down that road.

  • Oh my christ, that Burr asshole always has such a smarmy as fuck look on his face.

  • Msgr_MΩment

    Okay, yes, the Steele-Cage Dossier!

  • Skwerl the Taco Hunter

    Were their pee hookers?

    No comment.

    • Bobathonic

      You know, I am finding this term more and more demeaning. Shouldn’t we be talking about “pee workers”?

      • Msgr_MΩment

        “Micturition therapists”.

        • ZangoCrudmonger

          Whizards!!! (nerd alert)

  • Amelia Resists and Persists

    I love that Comey is like, pissed off in this super serene way that says he is not here for bullshit. Love it.

    • Nicole Pletcher

      It’s so fucking awesome

  • Phoenixdoglover

    From the statute:
    “whoever . . . . corruptly or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, influences, obstructs, or impedes, or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice, shall be (guilty of an offense).”

    It’s a rather broad set of possibilities.

  • BadKitty904

    No doubt that Comey’s a pro.

  • memzilla Ω

    What’s the pool on HOW MANY TIMES the word “collusion” gets used today?

    • onedollarjuana

      • tomamitai

    • Suse

      Is that our “drink!” word?

      • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

        we would all end up in the hospital.

        • Suse

          True.

          • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

            i gave up day drinking, now i’m sad about it. (that’s not a joke).

    How about when the President’s son-in-law tries to use a foreign embassy’s facilities to communicate with a foreign leader without the NSA listening in?

  • bbayliss

    BURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR, trying to freeze us.

  • Villago Delenda Est

    Burr’s questioning is boring. Waiting for Warner to open up a can of whoopass.

    • BadKitty904

      YES.

      • Villago Delenda Est

        Angus King is going to be awesome, based on yesterday’s session.

      • La forza del resistino

        Looking to Kamala Harris.. She will persist while smiling and in heels.

    • laughingnome

      He won’t – although he could surprise me.

    • armed_bears

      Yeah… but remember this is a REPUBLICAN asking these questions. Pretty clear there is some skepticism re: Trump and some (amount to be determined) confidence in Comey’s testimony and experience.

    • ThatGuy

      Mark Warner’s a little too high profile to be throwing elbows. He needs to preserve that pre-presidential image. Look for the other Democrats on the committee to bring out the coordinated offense.

  • Skwerl the Taco Hunter

    Say it! Say PEE HOOKERS!

  • MynameisBlarney

    Ok…I was reeeeally trying to find a meme related to the topic at hand. For real this time.

    I’m sure Raymond Burr, Perry Mason himself, will get to the bottom of this.

    • La forza del resistino

      Today we have Dick Burr drilling down to the bottom of this

    • boredcatlady

      And Bharara is Paul Drake!

    • Villago Delenda Est

      “So, Lieutenant Trask, when did you notice that Hamilton Burger was doing something strange?”

      • beingreleased

        Here’s a thing. My last name is Burger. I’ve heard many jokes about “Is you’re brother’s name Ham?” When I point out the prosecutor in Perry Mason was named Hamilton Burger, they don’t get it.

    • Ryan Denniston

      Because EMAILZZZ!

  • Kurt Weil

    For all his douchebaggery during the election, this performance is a reminder that James Comey embodies FBI culture. He’s got a very particular set of skills. Skills acquired over a very long career. Skills that make him a nightmare for people like the GOP.

    • laughingnome

      Yeah – the criminal class hate the feds.

  • ZangoCrudmonger

    Can someone please “shush” Burr?

  • Occupied Territory of Kavefish

    Burr’s going for EMAILS!

  • Cheesus Crust _ Rebel

    They’re trying to build the groundwork to blame Obama.

  • Phoenixdoglover

    So, clearly and unambiguously, Comey has obliterated the administration line that the Russian thing is Fake News.

    • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

      so i missed that, was he told not to call THAT an investigation or the hacking an investigation?

      • Cheesus Crust _ Rebel

        Yeah – what was this with the being instructed to call it a “matter”?

        • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

          that was not a good thing…

        • MassiveQuantitiesofPie

          Honestly, Hillary is a much better person than me. After all the shit he’s put her through, I would’ve thrown about a dozen lamps at his face by now.

  • under_score

    OK I’m not actually mad about Loretta Lynch/Bill Clinton being brought up. Because he is also wary of Sessions.

    • laughingnome

      Yep – it makes it fit with his character

    • ariel_gee_398

      But that being the deciding factor? You know, if Hillz just decided to beat him with her shoe in the town square, who would blame her?

    • armed_bears

    • chazmanr

    From WaPo’s Daily 202 email (which is why I can’t link to it):

    1. “The Trump administration has yet to understand how the campaign investigation is likely to be the gateway to the inner workings of the Trump empire,” writes Democratic wise man Doug Sosnik, who was a senior adviser to Bill Clinton from 1994 to 2000. “My lesson from those days: Trump and his advisers are in way over their heads and unprepared for what awaits them. … During the campaign and transition, the world of Trump remained a spider web of dealmakers whose mission was to expand the family’s fortune, and perhaps their own. Anyone who played in this environment is now legally vulnerable. … The Comey hearing presents the next big test for Trump. His response will either accelerate the downward spiral or signal the administration’s effort to reboot and increase its odds of survival.”

      “signal the administration’s effort to reboot”

    More from WaPo’s email newsletter:

    Collateral damage is inevitable. Joe Conason, who co-authored a book about Starr’s investigation called “The Hunting of the President,” notes that the special prosecutor couldn’t take down Clinton, but he did ruin Jim Guy Tucker’s life. Clinton’s successor as governor of Arkansas was convicted on charges that he’d lied on his application for a loan a decade earlier when he was in the television business. “Trump’s aides would be well-served by googling him — and Webb Hubbell, and Susan and Jim McDougal, and William J. Marks Sr. — about the brutal collateral damage of Starr’s investigation,” Joe writes for BuzzFeed. “Just like Starr and other independent or special counsels, Mueller may well prosecute offenses that appear tangential to the Russia case in order to turn targets into witnesses. … Seeking witnesses who would testify against Bill and Hillary Clinton, the Office of Independent Counsel … indicted well over a dozen of their friends and acquaintances, most of whom had nothing to do with Whitewater at all.”

    tl;dr: watch your back, TrumpPenceZees!

    Everyone, calm the balls down. Trump is not going down today. He’s almost certainly not going to be impeached either, because too much of any conceivable Congress is beholden to fact-impervious lunatics or opportunistic fools who think Trump can be used. We had a chance to avoid his presidency. We fucked it up.

    There is no silver bullet that will get us out of this situation. There never was. This testimony, at best, will weaken him slightly further. But he won’t actually ever be stopped until we unseat his party and then him. There’s no other way.

    • Joe Beese

      You’re fun at parties.

            …Okay, I stand corrected. Probably she and her followers think a perp-walk will happen today.

    • If we take back the house (which i think is a long shot), all bets are off.

      Personally, i believe he’ll go for corruption or conflicts of interest with his financial ’empire’ not russia.

      • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

        Even if we did get an impeachment (no easy task, considering the gerrymandered nightmare awaiting us in 2018), it takes 2/3rds of the Senate to convict. 2/3rds of the Senate couldn’t agree on the location of their own assholes. And all the while Trump would be screaming about how persecuted he is.

        • MassiveQuantitiesofPie

          Honestly, nobody gives a fuck what that piece of shit screams or whines about anymore. He’s a pathetic joke to 65% of this country and 95% of the world. He has his 25% base who are brainwashed minions and another 10% who support him jut because he has an R next to his name and that’s that. Everyone else hates him and wants him gone. That doesn’t mean it’ll happen because the GOP is pure fucking evil but, let’s not pretend that he’s popular or that his die-hards are some huge majority. They’re not. He looks dumber, crazier, and sicker by the day. Republicans aren’t afraid of him, only his base. As his numbers continue to slowly trickle downward, especially among Republicans or former GOPers now identifying as independents, that’ll matter.

    • Vincent Ricola

      “This testimony, at best, will weaken him slightly further.”

      I’m fine with that, it meets all my expectations for this testimony.

    Oh, this is rich…from the WaPo email, the wingnuts are really pressed to defend Donald:

    National Review Editor Rich Lowry (in Politico): “Judging only by his statement for the record provided to the Senate Intelligence Committee (perhaps the live testimony will play differently), Comey doesn’t have Trump nailed for high crimes and misdemeanors. Rather, he has him dead to rights for amateurish and ham-handed scheming, which is not an impeachable offense.”

    National Review columnist David French: “Obstruction of justice is a legal term with a legal meaning, and Trump’s request on its face and by itself simply doesn’t satisfy the elements of the crime.”

    “I know what we’ll do–we’ll say Donald was too incompetent to commit obstruction of justice! Brilliant!!!”

    Well, I can understand being stunned when hit with something unexpected. When I got sucker punched by a thug(who I later learned also choked someone out minutes earlier), I didn’t go down, but I didn’t hit him back, either. I was still processing the, “WTF just happened?” moment in my mind.

    He also says that WHEN HE LEFT, he had not seen specific evidence that Russia was successful in changing any votes in the election, though he has NO DOUBT that Russia was behind all of it.
    I feel like there are a lot of people who think it’s ok for Russia to interfere in our elections if there is no proof that their interference achieved their desired result. But when a country is attacked by another country using conventional weapons and no one gets hurt, would anyone say, “Well, sure they bombed us, but it’s not like there were any casualties, so no big!”

    • MassiveQuantitiesofPie

      I think it’s an ego thing. People don’t want to believe that they and others could be suckered into voting for a stupid, crazy traitor by fake news micro-targeted and spammed to them by a hostile foreign country. They want to pretend that we as a country would never really fall for that. They want to believe that they knew what they were doing even if they regret it now.

  • Mr. Blobfish

    Success By Trump captures the spirit of the driven man. The scent is an inspiring blend of fresh juniper and iced red currant, brushed with hints of coriander. As it evolves, the mix of frozen ginger, fresh bamboo leaves and geranium emerge taking center stage, while a masculine combination of rich vetiver, tonka bean, birchwood and musk create a powerful presence throughout wear.

    • cmd resistor

    Meanwhile, isn’t the spectacle of one Republican senator after another selling out their own country and every principle of democratic governance, constitutional order, and simple human decency, all on behalf of the Trump Organization just–well, just spectacular?

    • MamaBrown

      What a fucking great time to be alive!

    • House0fTheBlueLights

      Pretty fucking spectacular. And it’s not like they’re getting anything legislatively or electorally out of it, so you just gotta wonder how far up their mouths Putin’s dick actually is.

      • disqus_lWwzrwNaw6

        I hope to live long enough to find out how many of these dark money Republicans are actually collaborating with the Putin crowd, and how many are just treasonous little apparatchiks who do as they’re told because they know which side their bread is buttered on.

        Certainly, they all understand that the dark money donors are signing their paychecks (we taxpayers just provide them with pin money–the big bucks come from the fossil fuel and financial bosses).

        We have a pretty good idea that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is up to his reptilian, soulless little eyeballs in the Russia mess. The question is, how many of his caucus are in the sewage with him, versus how many of them are just operating under Party Discipline, which has become quite–hmmm–Stalinesque during the McConnell years?

        Of those on the committee, for instance, is committee chair Richard Burr in this thing directly or is he just a loyal party man? Cornyn (a fossil fuel senator) is in it for pretty darn sure, but how about Blunt? Dunno, and in the end it doesn’t much matter, dishonor being dishonor and treason being treason.

  • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

    So my takeaway from Rubio’s questions is that the Repubs strategy is to portray this as Trump trying to cover for a friend (Flynn) because he believed he was a good guy and wanted to protect his friends. He’s just that good a friend!

    We’ll see if the others follow up with this.

    Comey is a man who knows how the justice system works. The specific words he’s been using are those of a man who doesn’t want ANY of his testimony thrown out of court.

    • MrTusks

      Turning an investigation into admissible evidence was literally his job.

    • BadKitty904

      He’s been VERY particular about his verbiage.

  • Jennaratrix

    Okay look, I’m still mad about Comey’s email bomb before the election. But this man is honest and has integrity, in the face of an almost impossible to imagine scenario. He isn’t embroidering his testimony; he’s being very clear about what happened and what didn’t; if he doesn’t know, he says he doesn’t know; he admitted weakness in the face of a stunning and inappropriate request; he’s an excellent witness.

    I have a theory about that email bomb which makes me feel better about it, even if it was still a shitty thing. I don’t think much is going to come out of this testimony, honestly, since the Rs aren’t going to impeach this idiot while they can still use all this as a distraction to pass shit in the background (as they’re doing with Wall Street regs and the ACA RIGHT NOW), but I’m glad it’s happening regardless.

    • Joe Beese

      Fox News Breaking Report: COMEY ADMITS HE’S A WIMP

      • Jennaratrix

        Yeah, exactly. Women completely recognized that entire answer; when asked why he didn’t tell the president he was being inappropriate, he looked sort of abashed, and said he didn’t have the presence of mind to come right out and say “That was inappropriate.” And now Collins is zooming in on that. Sounds an awful lot like when people ask rape victims why they didn’t stop it, or why abused spouses don’t just leave.

    • BadKitty904

      IKR?

    • Courser_Resistance

      This is my take on Comey as well. And hey, ethical people can disagree on individual issues. But yes, I believe he’s an honest, ethical person.

      On a personal note, I’d read a book Comey wrote. Dude can really set a scene.

    • MassiveQuantitiesofPie

      While I’m still a little pissed about the email thing, remember that Comey sent it to Congress. It was Chaffetz that released to the press. Little fucker.

      They don’t want to know. They don’t want to see or hear anything for themselves. Rush, Hannity, Breitbart, etc. will tell them later what to think and they’re happy with that.

      My dad is one and deep down he knows that Trump is stupid and crazy at a minimum but can’t bring himself to face or admit it. So, he avoids watching him speak or finding out what he’s doing for himself. He certainly isn’t watching this for himself. The right wing spin makes him feel fine about voting for him, so he sticks with that.

  • OrdinaryJoe

    Not “personally” investigating you, is what he told 45*. Jeezuzzchryst. That had not meant anything to me until I heard him say it. 45*’s conduct of his personal peehooker life was not part of the investigation. Very cagey statement there sir.

  • Jgb979

    Super awesome PACs are treating the presidents obstruction of justice as just a political thing to be campaigned against!

    If nothin else comes of this, can we stop having mr and mrs. maverick messirs McCain and Graham on Sunday shows to talk about how disappointed they are personally in the president.

    If no Republican gets on board with shutting this shit down- eff em all

  • Anna Rompage

    Oh, Comey actually did intentionally have a friend represent his side & story…

    Looks like anonymous sources can be trustworthy…

  • William Cook

    Woo, law enforcement and race shoutout!

    • ZangoCrudmonger

      A tip of the hat to Bamz, too.

  • Elvis Causticfellow

    Haha, Trump thought he was threatening Comey with the existence of tapes, while meanwhile Comey thought that would be awesome if there were tapes.

    • BadKitty904

      Trump is just that stupid.

      • shastakoala

        The Fox tribe is going to say he was inexperienced.

          It’s the first lie he’s ever told! He needs time to get the hang of it.

      • Crank Tango

        I keep saying he’s stupid, crazy, and an asshole. I have yet to be proven wrong.

    • Jgb979

      I guarantee you he has no earthly idea what Watergate was even about.

      • Ghenghis McCann

        He would have bought it and called it “Trump Watergate”.

    • ltmcdies

      yeh …dumb thing to tweet if you don’t actually have tapes…but then Obama called Trump a bullshitter, didn’t he

      • Covfefe

        Obama was kind. Comey started his testimony by calling Donald a liar.

    • Crank Tango

      They don’t do tapes so good anyway…http://images.gawker.com/17iup7lw57fy2jpg/original.jpg

    Show us on the Constitution, Jimmy, where Mr Trump touched you…

  • I literally woke up in the middle of the night thinking about what this would be like if 1/200th of this was done by a democrat.

    I mean seriously this is just outrageous and Repubs believe it’s worth defending.

    Sickening.

    • If the Democratic leadership weren’t stupid, they’d put out boatloads of commercials IN ALL 50 STATES about rethugs putting party before country.

  • Resistance Fighter Callyson

    Heinrich: if you had kissed Donald’s ass during the dinner, do you think he woudn’t have fired you?

    Comey: fuck if I know–I had enough problems at the time.

    • BadKitty904

      LOL

      “I was just worried about getting out of there unmolested.”

      How far did the president expect you to stick your tongue up his rectum?

    No fuzz, man.

    • Ryan Denniston

      Fuzz, drink!

  • Lance Thrustwell

    Don’t ask Comey to suppose and hypothesize! That’ll just get torn to shreds by the Rs.

  • BadKitty904

    It was a Russian attack. Period.

  • Marceline

    Obama spoke to Comey about racism in policing. Not hookers. Not loyalty.

    Just a reminder of what some people tossed away because of her emails.

  • Sedagive ’em Hell

    The Russians interfered with our elections. Active measures campaign from the top of the government. Not a close call.

    NOT FAKE.

  • Suse

    There is no fuzz on that!

  • Picabo

    The no fuzz zone!

  • Resistance Fighter Callyson

    Comey: Let me be very fucking clear–the goddam Russians fucked with our election.

  • BadKitty904

    It’s about America, not a particular party.

    • Hamilton Ω, AKA Formerly DN

      It’s about the Constitution that these scumbags allegedly swore an oath to protect. They need to be forced to answer this question: “What has precedence for you, 1) the oath you swore when you came into office; 2) your loyalty to the Republican Party; 3) your pledge of loyalty to Grover Norquist; 4) your pledge to loyalty to Donald J. Trump; 5) your faith in your god; 6) your own smarmy ass; 7) Something else, like Putin, perhaps? Please answer this question definitively!”

  • Ilgattomorte

    How long before someone hands Comey a doll so he can show where the bad man touched him?

    • Meanie-meanie, tickle a person

      Was wondering that myself….

    I’m glued to this! I had to bring my smokin’ gear to my workspace, for the first time ever. I usually go into my bedroom to toke, but I can’t tear myself away, even for a few minutes

    • Lance Thrustwell

      You got an understanding workspace! Self-employed I take it?

      Ah, space, not place. Got it.

      • Courser_Resistance

        Telecommuter actually. It’d totally rock if it was a perm job, but I’m a contractor, but a pretty sweet gig nonetheless.

        Eh, I cooked up a couple eggs when Rubio was yammering.

  • Duchess Gummybuns

    I think it’s only fair that Comey has to sit there for 11 hours…don’t you?

  • weejee

    Hostile act on America. Try to spin that one beloved Repukes.

      FAKE NEWS!

  • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

    so comey has confirmed Russia interefered…didn’t Trump call that fake news, or was that just Trump/Russia intereference?

    (Comey just said, “it was not fake.”)

    • BadKitty904

      REPEATEDLY confirmed.

      • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

        your right, i was going to mention that and forgot we get each other BK ; )

  • memzilla Ω

    “The Russians interfered with our election.” SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT DENYING THIS FOREVER, RETHUGLICAN DRUDGEFOXBART APOLOGISTS.

  • BadKitty904

    …odd that the President didn’t seem concerned about Russian interference in our election?

    • Joe Beese

      “Maybe he shared his concern with other people. Who knows?”

      They want a film clip of themselves asking the question for their campaigning/publicity purposes.

      Why would this day be different than any other as far as congress repeating the same behavior and expecting different results?

      • proudgrampa

        “Why would this day be different than any other…”

        I didn’t know it was Pesach already…

        • chazmanr

          Actually it was late this year. Funny thing is, I am not Jewish. My stepdad is and the only thing I ever remember from Seder dinners was that introductory phrase.

          • proudgrampa

            True that.

  • Me The People

    Bam!

  • Bigby

    Yeah, the Rethugs’ whole thing seems to be “yes, he’s an utterly incompetent asshole, but he’s going to sign everything we ever wanted so fuck you, and fuck the country”.

    More proof there is no God. They’d literally, figuratively, and brightly burst into flames for their goddamn shameless hypocrisy. All to make the rich even richer and to fuck over The Other.

    • Hamilton Ω, AKA Formerly DN

      I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:23-26

      Everything is bigger in heaven. Who knew that in heaven, needles are nine hundred feet tall and the eye is at ground level for easy access? Also, who knew Republicans never read their fucking buybull, anyway?
