Recent TV news has focused on the “He Said He Said” between Comey and Trump and largely ignored what the Russian Investigation is really about. Comey testified that the Russians had not only intervened in last year’s election, but would try to do it again.
The Russians are attaching the bedrock of our democracy, the election process. Yet Trump says nothing about this problem, only that he would like the investigation to go away. I don’t think he understands or cares about a key part of his job description – To Protect The Constitution of The United States.
Also he clearly does not respect the rule of law. On one point I disagree with Comey. The President is obstructing justice, pure and simple.
Here are some quotes from Comey’s testimony:
“It’s not a Republican thing or Democratic thing — it really is an American thing,”
“They’re going to come for whatever party they choose to try and work on behalf of. And they’re not devoted to either, in my experience. They’re just about their own advantage. And they will be back.”
“There should be no fuzz on this whatsoever. The Russians interfered in our election during the 2016 cycle. They did it with purpose. They did it with sophistication. They did it with overwhelming technical efforts. And it was an active-measures campaign driven from the top of that government. There is no fuzz on that.”
