Report: Comey Will Testify About Trump’s Obstruction

Special prosecutor and former FBI director Robert Mueller has reportedly cleared... former FBI director James Comey to testify publicly about Trump's attempts to sway his investigation.

Comey has spoken privately with Special Counsel Robert Mueller III to work out the parameters for his testimony to ensure there are no legal entanglements as a result of his public account, a source said. Comey will likely sit down with Mueller, a longtime colleague at the Justice Department, for a formal interview only after his public testimony.

When he testifies, Comey is unlikely to be willing to discuss in any detail the FBI's investigation into the charges of possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign -- the centerpiece of the probe, this source said. But he appears eager to discuss his tense interactions with Trump before his firing, which have now spurred allegations that the president may have tried to obstruct the investigation.

Congressional Republicans and pundits will most likely do all that they can to downplay or dismiss Comey's testimony, whatever it may be, but this will undoubtedly be a very big deal.

I believe we'll be able to judge just how big of a deal it is by the volume of Trump's rage tweets that will surely follow.

Actually, he'll probably start raging before it even happens.

    I have often wondered if what the Russian have on trump is absolute, incontrovertible evidence of his and his campaign’s agreement to collude with Russia in its efforts to affect the US presidential election in trump’s favor. Incontrovertible evidence of a treasonous intent on his part and on the part of his campaign. Maybe even the GOP.

      I still think the dirt Russia has on him is financial. Trump doesn’t care if people think of him as racist or misogynistic or even dishonest or creepy. The only thing he cares about is that everyone believes that he is one of the uber-rich. I’m willing to be the Russians have proof that he’s in debt up to his eyeballs and even be under water financially. That would be the only thing he fears being disclosed.

        Probably so. He is so Putin’s bitch it is ridiculous. And obvious.
        But as has been pointed out, China is not unhappy with having a boob run the United States into the ground either.

    “The bottom line is he’s going to testify,” the source close to the issue said. “He’s happy to testify, and he’s happy to cooperate.”

    Stupid Watergate (all credit to John Oliver and his writers) is like Original Watergate on fast forward.
