WNU Editor: This post will be on top until the end of the hearings.
Update: If anyone wanted to prove that the FBI had become politicised under the former Director, this is it .... Comey hearing: Former FBI director says he helped reveal details of conversations with Trump to spur special counsel appointment (Washington Post).
Update #2: After listening to this for two hours I can say the following. Bottom line .... nothing is going to change. He gave enough crumbs to the Democrats/progressives/media/never Trumpers that President Trump is (fill in the bank) .... thereby continuing the narrative of Trump and Russia. For those who support Trump .... the former FBI Director gave them some crumbs to say that Trump has been vindicated. What's my take .... when the former FBI Director said in today's testimony that no one stopped him from continuing his investigations .... I said to myself .... there goes the obstruction of investigation charge that many have been branding about for the past few weeks as grounds for Trump's impeachment.
Update #3: Just a got flash while watching his testimony. Everyone is making the assumption that the former FBI Director is telling the truth. I say why? For all we know .... he is the one who is lying. But I like I said above .... nothing is going to change.
Update #4: I have said this before .... and after listening to James Comey's testimony this morning I feel validated .... Washington does not understand President Trump ... how he talks, his mannerism, his behaviour, and his views on government. Donald Trump is many things but he is not a politician .... and it took me a long time to realise this. I think this is one of many reasons why Donald Trump has problems when it comes to working with the political establishment .... they just do not speak the same language. Now in the case of James Comey .... I can now understand why he behaved the way that he did .... to him .... Donald Trump is from Mars.
Update #5: Senator Rubio said something that I have to give him credit for. Quoting him .... a lot of leaks that have come out of the FBI give the impression that they were thought about, strategised (see update #1), and released for maximum impact. BUT .... the only leak that never got released was the one in which the FBI was NOT investigating President Trump. Why was that?
Update #6: I have been hearing a lot of answers from the former FBI Director where he is saying that he cannot respond/answer in a public forum. Fair enough. However .... and I am the first to admit that I could be wrong .... but every-time he was saying that I was saying to myself that the answer would only (probably) vindicate President Trump.
Update #7: They are now in a closed session. I have had enough of this. This is what I learned from this testimony this morning. The Democrats hated this a guy a few months ago .... but they now want to hug him. But I digress. More importantly .... Trump was never a target. Trump did not obstruct the investigation. And former FBI Director Comey based his entire investigation on a faked British Russian document. And .... more important to him .... he feels that he has been defamed and in turn the FBI was defamed too. Sorry .... the FBI does not belong to you. Trump is the boss and he fired you .... accept it. Enough is enough. Back to the real world. Regular blogging will resume in a few minutes.
Update #8: More lies from CNN. Just took a small lunch break and CNN is saying that President Trump is under investigation. He is not.
Update #9 This will be ignored by the press .... Comey said Loretta Lynch told him not to call the Clinton email probe an 'investigation' (CIRCA).
Update #10: Some have commented on this blog that the press is covering the Loretta Lynch story, and that my Update #9 is inaccurate. It was only after I had posted my Update #9 that I noticed this coverage, and I actually applauded it on the comment feed at 4:51 PM .... saying that it is about time. So yes .... I did noticed it .... and I did comment on it.
