Just read this.

I feel the part about Comey "training" the White House is going to be the defense to questions about why he didn't report things at the time.

I looked at it as a sting operation. Having a man on the inside is key. Also, Trump's statement wouldn't be damning enough in a vacuum.

Well, when you report things on time you get fired anyway and painted as a disgruntled employee. I would suspect the timing is all in the relationships. All Comey would have to say is "I was following Trump's orders" and most people would think that's just fine, right?

If it was a sting, he really shouldn't be casually talking about it over lunch.

Sting is probably not the right word, but it makes no sense to resign if you have concerns. If you think Trump could compromise the next FBI head, resigning is the last thing you do.


I do think Wittes is underselling his relationship with Comey though. Which makes me wary.

What are these "entanglements with the DOJ" that Gowdy speaks of?

Not familiar with Crowder. He comes off like a dickhead.

I like Ben however, and his analysis isn't bad, but if the vultures are in fact circling Kushner, it becomes harder to buy Trump was only thinking of himself.

I'm surprised to hear a Greg Louganis AIDS joke from someone who isn't even 30.

BTW, I love that this so far has given us two Trump quotes that are full of projection:
Look he’s a showboat, he’s a grandstander
He was crazy, a real nut job
