Why Leftists hoping, calling for Trump impeachment will be disappointed by James Comey’s testimony

The media hysteria is in full speed, propping up the James Comey hearing as “Must-see TV” but for the rabid left hoping and clamoring for the impeachment of President Trump, today will be a HUGE disappointment.

Let’s be clear, the former FBI head’s testimony won’t end the Russia conspiracy theories or attacks, but will confirm one thing for Trump supporters: there is no evidence and Trump likely did NOTHING wrong.

While the Senate intelligence committee begins today, Comey released his pre-written testimony Wednesday, included his detailed account of Trump alleged instructions to end the investigation into Michael Flynn.

Comey says in his statement: “The President then returned to the topic of Mike Flynn, saying, ‘He is a good guy and has been through a lot.’ He repeated that Flynn hadn’t done anything wrong on his calls with the Russians, but had misled the Vice President. He then said, ‘I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.’ I replied only that ‘he is a good guy.’ (In fact, I had a positive experience dealing with Mike Flynn when he was a colleague as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency at the beginning of my term at FBI.) I did not say I would ‘let this go.'”

After exiting the room, Comey adds that “I immediately prepared an unclassified memo of the conversation about Flynn and discussed the matter with FBI senior leadership. I had understood the President to be requesting that we drop any investigation of Flynn in connection with false statements about his conversations with the Russian ambassador in December. I did not understand the President to be talking about the broader investigation into Russia or possible links to his campaign. I could be wrong, but I took him to be focusing on what had just happened with Flynn’s departure and the controversy around his account of his phone calls. Regardless, it was very concerning, given the FBI’s role as an independent investigative agency.”

Comey then explains that the conversation was essentially hear-say, not impacting their plans and explains that there was little reason to take the matter to AG Jeff Sessions. The phone calls describe President Trump trying to get Comey to move faster and lift the “cloud” over the President and how this was slowing down his agenda.

Comey repeatedly assures Trump that he was not personally under investigation.

If Comey stops short of alleging obstruction of justice, it could lend credibility to Trump’s case that the Russia controversy and allegations of a cover-up are overblown.

For Eric Beach, co-chair of the Great America Alliance, it would mean case closed.

“If there is no evidence, this will certainly allow Trump to move on,” Beach told Fox News. “If the leaks are true and Comey does not allege obstruction of justice, the rest is rhetoric.”

“The real question is which Comey shows up to testify: the talkative insider dying to dish the inside scoop on Trump’s bizarre and increasingly unpredictable antics, or the tight-lipped G-man who keeps his own counsel and answers every second question with a no-comment,” Jens David Ohlin, associate dean and law professor at Cornell Law School told “Newsweek.” “If it’s the former it will be an unparalleled D.C. summer blockbuster that will provoke an epic Trump tweet-storm meltdown.  But if it’s the latter it will be an anticlimactic box office flop.”

Today will prove to be a flop.

Comey already testified over and over again, they have/had NOTHING and he fired the next day. He’s not been loyal to the President or even the AG and was retained longer than needed due to these investigations.

Why this isn’t Watergate?

The Comey firing has not threatened the FBI’s existence or its ongoing investigations. The FBI will have a new Senate-confirmed director, who will report to the Deputy Attorney General as before. TRUMP ACCOMPLISHED NOTHING.

Challenging the FBI director was within the president’s rights and surely necessary to restore integrity to the investigation and prosecution of crimes in our justice system.

If Hillary Clinton took office and fired Comey, would the left be clamoring for impeachment because she was covering up her email scandal?

Hypocrisy abounds and America suffers.
