Trump just threw a guilty conscience tantrum about James Comey’s damning Congressional testimony

Donald Trump knows the walls are closing in.


Friday’s release of the sentencing memos for both his former attorney Michael Cohen and his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort essentially outed the president as an unindicted co-conspirator in felonies that would have him already on the way to prison if not for the pesky fact that the Justice Department doesn’t believe it’s possible to indict a sitting president — despite the fact that there is nothing in the U.S. Constitution prohibiting it.

Boxed in a corner, Trump is responding in the only way that he knows how: lying and lashing out to create any distraction from the growing mounds of evidence that will inevitably bring him and his criminal enterprise of an administration crumbling down.

Republicans in the House of Representatives helped Trump in his attempts to create a large distraction by bringing in the FBI Director he famously fired last year, James Comey, to testify yet again before the Judiciary and Oversight committee on Friday about the initiation of the probe into the Russian collusion with his campaign.

Comey had refused to appear before the committee behind closed doors, fearing that the GOP members would selectively leak parts of his testimony in an effort to continue to protect Trump. In the end, he agreed to speak only if a full transcript of the session were released publicly within 24 hours of the testimony.

Of course, President Trump used the transcript to try to take the attention away from the damning implications of the leaked details of the Mueller investigation that were contained in Friday’s sentencing memos. He took to Twitter to once again to try to undermine the credibility of the inquiry that has been slowly tightening the noose around his neck — an appropriate metaphor for someone accused of such treasonous actions.

Trump’s attack on Comey as a liar is pathetically laughable coming from a man whose pathological mendacity is so legendary that the internet contains sites dedicated to chronicling the number and frequency of his deliberate avoidance of the truth.

The president also fails to point out that the reason that Comey was unable to answer many of the questions thrown at him for the umpteenth time by House Republicans is that the questions concerned actions under investigation as part of the probe of Trump’s attempts to obstruct justice, such as when he asked Comey to not prosecute Michael Flynn for lying about his Russian contacts and undeclared foreign lobbying for Turkey

In fact, a current FBI official, Cecilia Bessee, was present at the Comey testimony to ensure that nothing that could undermine the ongoing investigation would be disclosed. Whenever a question that touched on a topic sensitive to the investigation was broached, she’d interrupt the congressman asking by interjecting:

“Mr. Chairman, to the extent that question goes—again, goes to the special counsel’s investigation into obstruction, the witness will not be able to answer.”

It’s not surprising that Trump mischaracterizes Comey’s testimony for his own benefit, given the desperate situation that he now finds himself in.

In the end, it’s very simple to analyze a vicious tweet from the president. Whatever he’s accusing his intended target of doing is what he himself is guilty of.

The lying, the “Rigged Fraud” of an election headed up by dishonest people who would do anything so that he could become President. They are now exposed!

And Trump is now in the final stages of fighting for his life.
