Trump feels ‘totally vindicated’ by Comey’s planned testimony

President Trump is feeling pretty good knowing James Comey has absolutely nothing on him.  Tomorrow's hearing is much ado about nothing.   

NY Post reports President Trump’s personal lawyer said Wednesday that ex-FBI Director James Comey’s testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee has left Trump feeling “completely and totally vindicated.”

“The president is pleased that Mr. Comey has finally publicly confirmed his private reports that the President was not under investigation in any Russia probe,” New York attorney Marc Kasowitz wrote in a statement.

 “The president feels completely and totally vindicated. He is eager to continue to move forward with his agenda,” Kasowitz said in the statement, first reported by Bloomberg.

Comey wrote that Trump asked him to deep six the feds’ investigation into ex-national security adviser Mike Flynn.

  1. In response to Jonathan Turley's column claiming Comey does not make a legal case for obstruction, I beg to differ as have many legal experts including Jeffrey Toobin. A President using his office to pressure an FBI director to drop an investigation while demanding loyalty pledges, then firing said director once that fails to happen, is obviously seeking to obstruct justice. Article 4 in the Republican impeachment of Bill Clinton cited "abuse of power." No intellectually honest person can claim that Trump's Comey actions do not represent a clear abuse of power. Based on the Clinton impeachment standard alone, Trump is guilty. And if his last name were Obama or Clitnon, he'd have already been impeached.
