    James Comey is caught between a rock and a hard place concerning his memo. Fox anchor Gregg Jarret was on Tucker Carlson Tonight. He said "If Comey thought this memo was somehow a smoking gun that would incriminate the President, Comey has put himself in a legal box. Why? Under the law, Comey is required to notify his superiors in the Department of Justice if anybody, including the President, attempts to obstruct justice. It is a crime for Comey to fail to do so. So the question is, 'Did he notify DOJ?' There is no evidence that he did. It is more likely because he would be in legal jeopardy for failing to report, that Comey will say, 'It was an uncomfortable and disconcerting conversation, but it didn't rise to the level of the specific intent required by obstruction of justice. The language that Mr. Trump used was vague, ambiguous and elliptical', and if he says that when he testifies, that he didn't think that it was obstruction, he is essentially clearing President Trump. If he says, 'Yea, I thought it was obstruction', and he didn't report it, he is looking at charges, criminally, and time behind prison".

    Please don't just dismiss this because it was reported on FNC. Judge it on the provable facts.

    He no longer feels that the Trump Administration can bury or distort his testimony if done in a closed hearing. Now with a special council Comey feels he can safety give information in a closed hearing and it will not be twisted or buried.

    I'm kind of disappointed I was looking forward to that open hearing. Oh, well I guess we will have to wait to see where the special council takes things.
    You'll hear it. ALL OF IT! But it will be on Mueller's time schedule. THOUGH I'm guessing that the House could 'demand' him come? Not sure. It would be wise for neither to demand his appearance and defer to Mueller's schedule.

    The thing is it was an ongoing investigation. He wasn't under any obligation to run to the Deputy AG about it or Congress. First it was a failed attempt of obstruction. Comey had it in control, he wasn't bending to the intimidation. What he did was document that we know for sure. I suspect he talked to one or two people in other Intelligence Agencies and reported it to them. Its part of documenting evidence by telling someone else your account of the meeting or phone call as close to the evident as possible. Comey is smart, he has probably recorded who the person or persons were he told and has details like the time and place he told them.

    Only when you compare them (Hannity & Carlson) to snowflakes like Rachel Maddow.

    The facts are that Trump cannot undo this. The stink will remain, no matter if his words can be legally used against him for obstruction or not, the fact that he tried, is out in the open now, and will stay.

    He might get legally exonerated (on this topic), but not morally. The perception of Trump being shady and dishonest and arrogant, will remain.

    And if there's one thing we've learned in last year's election, facts don't elect our President anymore, perception does.
