Comey Releases Prepared Testimony To Be Delivered Tomorrow

He's sneakier than I predicted-- I figured he would honor his claim that he would offer "no legal conclusions," and just have his mouthpieces leak those conclusions out.

Instead, while technically offering no concrete legal conclusions, he keeps characterizing Trump's statements and actions as "concerning."

Which plays right into the media's game (go figure!): the media can never tell us specifically what laws Trump is accused of violating; they mere imply that he must have broken some law. Look how concerning this all is!

I'm not sure which part of the US Criminal Code covers "concerning" behavior, or whether Comey would invent an "intent" element of the Crime of Being Concerning if Hillary Clinton were to to be accused of "concerning behavior."

He does confirm that he did in fact tell the president, without being asked, that he was not the subject of any investigation at least on January 6th.

BTW, he did not make memos of his conversations with Obama. Fancy that!
