Comey hearings


The Comey hearings go on right now on CNN and all major networks.



Last night, on CNN, Jeffrey Toobin and Alan Dershowitz had a disagreement as to whether Trump’s behavior with Comey amounts to criminal obstruction of justice.  Dershowitz says that Trump’s behavior was within his powers, but Congress can still try to impeach.  Toobin said this resembles Nixon.  There is confusion as to what is impeachable and what could lead to later criminal prosecution.

Comey called the president a liar several times.

Comey was criticized by Trump's attorney for "leaking" official information to a third party, a Columbia University Professor, after Comey saw Trump's speculative tweet about having tapes.

Here's the CNN link.

Many Senators this morning expressed dismay that Russians had so brazenly interfered with our elections.
