So..... potentially, possibly, but, well, maybe, woulda, coulda, shoulda. Lot's and lot's of those answers in the interviews. For a person in the position he once held, those aren't the kind of answers anyone wants to hear, let alone the new President. While I don't buy everything Trump and Comey have said about the situation, Comey, aside from what he has to keep secret, seems to be anything but upfront and direct. I can see why Trump may not have liked him and didn't want him to remain in that type of position any longer. Trump obviously values people who are upfront and direct about situations, and Comey doesn't seem to fit those values. Trump not knowing Comey very well, also values loyalty and wanted it from him, showing allegiance to the Country and it's President, yet Comey wouldn't offer that either. Trump being a businessman and patriot, wouldn't like that very much.
Would you prefer he came out and just said "yes im 100% sure he obstructed justice" ?
Instead of saying "I think he coulda have, lets see what the investigation has to say about it".
I'd prefer he either give a solid yes, no, or no comment. He's not what you would call an everyday joe, based on his past position, and he's not a celebrity spewing whatever pops into their heads to keep the spotlight on themselves. He could be doing it to keep himself in the spotlight for whatever reason, like for his book, or whatever his "higher loyalty" is exactly...
He's also talking about the President. Now if Trump did do something wrong, then just shut up and let Mueller take care of it, because if your so sure that Trumps guilty, justice will be served. The media should only get solid evidence and minor details, but the people investigating Trump need the full scoop. If your not sure if he's guilty, then put a sock in it, because if he's innocent, you've just helped hold back progress due to all the nonsense the President has been dealing with since he took office. It would also make you look like you were potentially unfit for your prior position, which one would have to wonder why you were given that position in the first place, and how qualified really was that individual who hired you?
I'm sure lot's of Comey's past co-workers could constantly spill the beans about all of his faults and make him out to be a horrible person, and make his career hell going forward, when maybe he's not really that bad, and simply isn't perfect like the rest of us, which he alludes to in the interview. The reason they wouldn't do this, aside from the possibility that he was great at his job, is because if it needed to be taken care of, it would have been, behind closed doors, with the media only getting minor details here and there. Taking care of things like sophisticated adults do, like the type of people you would hire to protect a country and it's citizens.
