Was Comey hearing hoopla ‘an exercise in futility’?

Former FBI director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee had Washington in a tizzy on Thursday.

President Donald Trump abruptly fired Comey last month, and the White House gave multiple, conflicting reasons for why he was terminated. Following a report that Trump had pressured Comey to end an FBI investigation into national security adviser Michael Flynn, Comey testified on Thursday morning.

The hearing was eagerly anticipated by media outlets and in Washington, with at least one D.C. bar offering free drinks if Trump tweeted during the hearing.

Doc Thompson, Kari Malinak and Kal Elsebai tried to sort through the chaos on Thursday’s “Pat & Stu.”

“What an exercise in futility,” Doc said of the media hoopla surrounding the hearing.

Kari pointed out that at least Comey got the chance to lay out his side of the story after he was unceremoniously fired by Trump. Comey was fired so suddenly that he saw the story about his own termination on the news while he was speaking to FBI employees.

Comey, who has been rejected by both sides of the aisle at various points, still seems like an honest actor, Kal believed.

“I believe when he says what he says,” he declared. “I don’t feel like he’s trying to be shady or trying mince words.”
