So, much ado about covfefe.. Comey told Trump 3x that he was not under investigation by the FBI

Ok honestly I dunno how this is going XD it feels like a tug of war between Dems and Republicans since he seems super neutral. So is this looking good, bad, or the same as before? I've been working a 14hr shift... I'm dozing off. So yeah x.x



Can someone sum what happened.

Person: So can you tell us anything that would either prove Trump innocent or guilty of anything

Comey: Nope

Not much has changed. Trump still isn't under investigation. Enough gotcha moments that both sides believe they won.

Seriously, guys...if someone is under investigation and they (the person under investigation) asks you if they are under investigation, are your legally required to say yes? Would that make any sense to say yes? You wouldn't want him to alter his behaviors, that's for sure. It's funny how so many people accept the alternative facts of this president, yet expect truth from everyone else and assume that certain strategic denials would be gospel. This is an ongoing investigation and many questions asked by the senators could not be answered in an open session. You'll have to wait a bit longer for the Special Prosecutor to conclude his work before you can say definitively one way or the other what links there are between this administration and Russia if any.

Considering that Comey was under oath, he would be committing perjury if he explicitly lied. For questions too sensitive, he didn't answer.

Comey makes his entrance at 7:30

Currently listening to it. I'm riveted.

You misunderstood my post, I think.  My point about not telling the truth was in regards to Comey telling Trump the truth when asked whwther he was under investigation.  If I were investigating the president and he asked me if I was investigating him I would absolutely say I was not.

I thought it was in reference to his testimony today. I mean, lying to President would pretty much justify firing, which is really the only reason the hearing was going on right now.
