Comey defends Trump despite being uncomfortable around him

Former FBI director James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee today, perhaps unintentionally defending President Donald Trump. That’s the conclusion Rachel Alexander of Stream.com made upon watching CSPAN’s coverage.

She confessed to Mike Opelka on “Pure Opelka” today, “I was pretty surprised. I thought he would be more nuanced and kind of all over the board.” But instead, Comey provided a “tremendous defense of Donald Trump.” He made many statements that seemed to back up much of what has Trump said regarding his lack of collusion with Russia.

If she were on the panel, Alexander would have asked Comey who helped him to write up his hearing testimony because she found it to be "such an odd piece of work.” He depicted himself as someone who really disliked Trump and did everything he could to avoid being around him.

Mike agreed it was weird, citing the time Comey told Attorney General Jeff Sessions that he didn’t want to be alone with Trump. She replied, "And it’s not valid because ultimately Trump is his boss.” Comey keeps saying the FBI is independent of the White House, but the president has authority to hire and fire agency directors.

The executive also has the right to pardon. If Trump decides to pardon former national security adviser Michael Flynn, this entire proceeding could be "just a show," Mike pointed out.
