Comey's A Political Actor

Most people consider James Comey to be an honest man—and he may be, in his dealings as the director of the FBI. But he was an incompetent director, and was fired for it. Now he's out to do as much damage to Donald Trump as he can as REVENGE for being fired. After that fateful meeting with President Trump, where Trump had him stay after others left, he did NOT seem to “feel” that Trump had “instructed” him to “lay off” General Michael Flynn. However, after being fired, he “suddenly remembers” feeling “uncomfortable” and that Trump had ORDERED him to lay off Flynn, based on very thin “evidence” in his memory. He CLAIMS to have quickly written a memo so he would not forget. Unfortunately, that memo is not “evidence” and cannot, by itself, show that Trump actually DID what Comey says he did. It's still his word against the president of the United States. In any case, even if Trump did do what Comey says he did, that is NOT “obstruction of justice,” since, as president, he HAS the full authority TO order Comey to end an investigation—the same authority any prosecutor has to refuse to prosecute a case he thinks should not be pursued any further.
