Comey’s communicativeness with the committee—and through it with the public—will almost certainly be inversely proportional to the seriousness of the Russia investigation. That is, if Comey says a lot, makes a lot of news on Russia matters, and cheers a lot of anti-Trump hearts by maximally embarassing the President for his outrageous comments on Obama’s alleged wiretapping of Trump Tower, that will very likely be a sign that Comey has relatively little to protect in terms of investigative equities in the Russia matter and is thus free to vent. Conversely, a quiet, reserved Comey—one whose contrast with the relatively loquatious FBI director who talked at length about the Clinton email matters will infuriate a lot of liberals and frustrate those who want to know what’s going on with Russia—may well spell trouble for the President.
I think it is interesting that Lawfare Blog presents it as a two-point either/or scenario; either Comey talks a lot which means he has little or nothing or Comey doesn't talk which "may well spell trouble for the President."
Nope. I don't agree. It is not either/or.
It is #1 Comey talks a lot which means he has little or nothing

2) that may spell trouble for the President
3) that may mean COMEY IS IN TROUBLE AND HE KNOWS IT.
SO YEAH, THERE'S THIS:
AND THEN THERE'S THIS:
