Or is Comey justice for Trump?

Whatever works. smile

Meanwhile,

The Trump effect: Everyone’s thinking of running for president.

On the Democrat side, at least. I'm just waiting for the Republicans to start moving as well. Although, if you remember, a certain VP is already raising money for a campaign.

Marking my spot. I missed most of the last thread but will try harder here.

I've also started recording The Daily Show to try and keep up with things!

Thanks lweji. I suspect that with the Comey hearing and the inevtiable fallout (or perhaps I should lower my expectations so as not to be too disappointed if nothing new emerges?) this will be a fast-paced thread!

Constant dropping wears the stone, hopefully.

Meanwhile Brazil are going ahead with the court trial of their own President.
Remember that the previous one was impeached only recently.

Trump has dinner with Marco Rubio and Tom Cotton at the White House tonight. Both senators will question James Comey on Thursday.
