Trump is terrified of James Comey. The unceremoniously fired FBI Director is both smart, capable, and well-liked at the Bureau. Trump is dumb, unskilled, and widely disliked. Like the cornered animal he is, Trump has been snapping. Trembling within the security of the Oval Office, Trump attempted to frighten the profession law enforcer with a Tweet:
James Comey better hope that there are no “tapes” of our conversations prior to he begins leaking to the press!Comey responded by saying he”hopes there are tapes. “The Tweet was a traditional example of Trumpian self-sabotage. It had seemed that Comey was content to remain quiet, and accept the prerogative of a president to fire his FBI Director. Trump merely could not leave it be and– maybe spurred by his guilty conscience and paranoia– slammed Comey in an interview as a”grandstander”and”showboat.” The stoic FBI Director has finally had enough.The New york city Times reports that Comey has actually accepted testify prior to the Senate on Trump and Russia, but just if the statement is public.The Senate Intelligence Committee had previously asked for that Comey appear for a closed-door hearing. The Committee is investigating Russia’s hacking of the 2016 election, as well as claims of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow. Comey decreased the invite for undefined reasons.His desire to affirm now, however on the condition that it be
public, is a surprising advancement. Possibly Comey is just tired of all the lies swirling about the Trump White House, and does not wish to trigger a new round of wild speculations by offering a secret testimony. By revealing exactly what he understands, maybe he wants to inject some disinfectant into an administration that is filled with the gangrene of lies and corruption. Possibly Trump has actually pushed him too far, and he wishes to put the coward in his place.In either case, a face-off looms. Trump needs to be sweating through his uncomfortable fit right now.
Expect another mad tirade from the Tweeter-in-chief before Comey takes the stand.
