Well, it looks like it was a waste of time for the Democrats, No Comey had no smoking gun on Trump! none what so ever and Comey told lawmakers that Trump did not ask him to end the Russia investigation as a whole. The biggest thing Comey had to say was about himself ” accused the administration of defaming him and said comments made about his competency “were lies, plain and simple.” the most interesting thing to come of the hearing was he helped orchestrate a media leak of his private conversations with Trump because he thought that by doing so, it would put pressure on the administration and result in the appointment of a special counsel. Good reason right there to fire the man!
The Democrats have not come out of this free and easy. Comey got a few good shots in on them, then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch directed him(Comey) to describe the Hillary Clinton email probe as a “matter” and not an “investigation.” So it did not shed a bad light on her(Hillary).He also said that the directive, combined with Lynch’s unusual Arizona tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton, led him to make his independent announcement regarding the Clinton email probe last July. bet the Democrats hated that!
The Tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton seemed to be the straw that broke the camels back for Comey “That was one of the bricks in the load that I needed to step away from the department,” Comey said, later adding he was concerned Lynch was trying to align the DOJ’s comments with the way the campaign was talking about the probe. “That gave me a queasy feeling,” “Yes, that was the thing that capped it for me,” Comey said. “I needed to protect the investigation and the FBI.” Sounds like he was seeing what the rest of us were.
Overall I would say it was an overall win for Trump will this stop the Democrats witch hunt no! but it might force Hillary back out of the public eye once more we can only hope
