Quote of the Day


Washington Post:

“The president tweeted on Friday after I got fired that I’d better hope there are not tapes,” Comey said. He said he woke up on Monday thinking that if there are tapes, there might be corroboration of Comey’s account. Comey said he asked “a friend of mine to share” a memo he had written about his conversation with Trump “with a reporter.”

Asked by Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) why he felt he had the authority to do that, Comey replied, “as a private citizen, I felt free to share that. I thought it was very important to get it out.”

Comey said he used someone else to share the information because he was worried, with reporters camped out at his home, that giving the information to a reporter directly “would be like feeding seagulls at the beach.’’

    Dave, I’m certainly glad you handle the heavy lifting and pretty much leave me to deal with the lightweight stuff. I am so put off by the political wars right now that it’s difficult to even think straight. The one thing I do know is that, if Bill Schmalfeldt is agin’ it, whatever it is probably has some merit.

    Seagulls are also known as the rats of the sea. Which goes to show you that Comey thinks of reporters as the rats of the paper. Though that isn’t wrong. He certainly isn’t above using them to advance his personal agenda. Which is sort of why he was a terrible choice for the head of the FBI in the first place.

  3. Comey was lying, though. He leaked about the meeting before Trump tweeted about it.
