WELL?

Earlier today, Epa posted the following:
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

AND

If Comey doesn't talk much 

2) that may spell trouble for the President 

or 

3) that may mean COMEY IS IN TROUBLE AND HE KNOWS IT.

SO YEAH, THERE'S THIS:



AND THEN THERE'S THIS:

FBI Director Refuses to Tell Congress If He Discussed Gen. Michael Flynn’s Phone Calls with Obama (VIDEO)

What do you think? 

Is Comey up shit creek?

I think he is secure. I think given the NSA data collection, and the IC community, he is HOOVER.
That;s why he said 'You are stuck with me for 6 1/2 years.

But nothing would thrill me more than Trump deconstructing the entire IC, and having his new manager, and GM rebuild the teams.

And I heard Gowdy loud and clear.

But as things stand today, the entire NSA collection scheme MUST GO

My small thought? Having allowed a bull-riding rodeo to go on for so long with "speculation" of Russian influence in the election, Comey is now wanting it all - and I mean ALL OF THESE DISCUSSIONS - to go away. He now claims Russia did not influence U.S. elections.

Why the hell did the FBI not quell the rumors in the first place?

We are playing "who blinks first?" I doubt it will be the POTUS. But he has given the intel community such a black eye that the damage seems immense. One thing you don't want to do for sure, if in intelligence, is put your dirt out for public view. It seems counterproductive to operations.

Oh... well!

This whole situation can not be allowed to go on as it has. We need to demand real answers and resolution.

Either our President is a fucking idiot, or the Intelligence Community has blatantly attempted a coup.

TLEP, when did Comey say: He now claims Russia did not influence U.S. elections.
He did not say that in the video ... And that is the most recent statement on the issue, is it not?

I believe he said they did not affect the election OUTCOME.I was listening to the hearings driving around.

Who can say they did not change a vote via influence either the way they hoped or the opposite?

The idea that democrats are rigidly anti Ivan might be one of the most stupid things I've ever heard.

Anyone alive and cognizant since 1962 understands IVAN, and anyone alive and cognizant since Reagan understands the democrats on this issue
