WASHINGTON -- James Comey said Sunday that he thinks there's "certainly some evidence of obstruction" by President Donald Trump -- a statement that aired hours after Trump suggested the "slippery" former FBI director should be imprisoned.

Comey is correct.

Just watching the demeanor of Trump and SHS gives Comey’s statements even more credibility. It’s as if he knows more will come out and has to throw up the screen to deflect. He truly is unfit to lead this country. He would be more suited in a Third World country like Venezuela. What makes it worse is the group of issue illiterate voters who continue to plague our elections with thuggery and division. They are tearing down their own party, much less the country.

It is a little frightening that Trump still has support out there. His support is mostly white male with no college; he also does well among rural whites. I suspect that they care only about their guns and nothing else.

Statements of obvious fact often provoke the strongest denial and the greatest outrage because they are statements of obvious fact and cannot be countered by statements of obvious fact.

So Trump's "logic" is that Comey publicly reopened the email investigation 11 days before the election, without knowing the usefulness of the laptop's emails, to curry favor with Hillary in the hope of keeping his job or getting a better one after she was elected? Makes no sense whatsoever. Hillary was furious and rightfully so. Of course, Comey should have said nothing about the "new" emails until at least until he knew what their value was. And he should have left any pronouncements about prosecution to Lynch or some other Justice Department figure. If anything, Comey, a lifelong Republican, abetted the Trump campaign every step of the way. He made no public pronouncements about the ongoing investigation of Trump campaign officials playing footsie with Russian intelligence operatives while rather publicly investigating Hillary's use of a private server.

A good point about Trump being suited to rule a Third World country, RBear, but it enhances Trum's legitimacy as our nation increasingly assumes more Third World characteristics.

Yeah right, Comey's got creds! Sheez!

KCSAP compared with Trump? Yea, he does.

I have to go with DSF on this one. Reopening the investigation into Clinton’s emails was one thing; he should never have announced it publicly. Who does that? It was a clearly political move and in complete opposition to his claims of non partisanship. I agree with his assessments of Trump. Aside from that, good riddance.

That is really rich coming from a guy that has completely disgraced the office he held and the agency he led. He is so arrogant in believing he is above the law he admits in his book he declined to investigate and refer Hillary for political reasons and admits he lied to obtain a FISA warrant using a fake dossier. If he isn't prosecuted we will never have confidence in our government agencies again.
