There is a dark cloud over America. James Comey's Senate testimony showed us how dark that cloud is becoming.
First, Comey tells Americans Trump lies. Apparently his concern over Trump's lying made Comey doing something out of the ordinary-create memos of the conversation to preserve those conversations with Trump. Remember, this is a career lawyer, and law enforcement officer, making this decision, and taking action on it.
Second, Comey says the situation with Trump was highly unusual warranting highly unusual actions on his part.
Third, he indicated Donald Trump was not the subject of the Russia investigation but Trump could be a subject of the investigation depending on what the investigation uncovers. After all, Trump was the head of his campaign and has responsibilities for its actions
Fourth, he said the Russians aggressively interfered with our election in an effort to undermine how our society works.
Fifth, Trump lied, plain and simple, about the FBI (and Comey)
Sixth, Comey says that Trump 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." Imagine sitting in the Oval Office, alone, with the man who occupies the that Office and having him say this to you "I hope you can let this go" suggesting if you do this you can keep your job...there is a clear message in this statement.
Seventh, in response, the GOP, and Trump's private lawyer, try to make this a he said, he said situation.
Eighth, Trump's personal lawyer claims Trump is vindicated. He is not.
A dark cloud is forming over us. It is fueled by partisan division and a general disconnect from the American public. America should listen to Comey's words, wake up and see the politically generated dark cloud above us.
If we do not, we will be consumed by the storm that is on the horizon and headed our way.
