It’s difficult to keep up with every political story that breaks every minute of every day of this hellish administration, and it’s even more difficult to remember all of that sh-t a day later. So I keep forgetting and then re-remembering that James Comey A) has a book coming out called A Higher Loyalty and B) has given an exclusive interview to ABC News about his book and Donald Trump and the FBI and everything else. Comey was fired by Donald Trump a year ago. Trump admitted to Lester Holt, days after the Comey firing, that he did it because he didn’t like that Comey had greenlighted the Russia investigation. Which is obstruction of justice. All of this continues to be obstruction of justice. Anyway, here’s the promo for Comey’s ABC interview:
"Was President Trump obstructing justice?”

There just had to be a Hillary question. I’m surprised George Stephanopoulos didn’t say “But what about her emails!?” But the rest of it is good. It’s fine. I mean, James Comey was never going to be our white f–king knight. People are always like “but wait, isn’t Robert Mueller a gigantic Republican too?” But Bobby Mueller is our white knight, I have to f–king believe that. That’s what I hold on to. But James Comey? He’s no folk hero. He’s not the Resistance’s Zaddy. Still, his book tour and this interview is going to be fun to watch. Here’s some other pieces of James Comey gossip:
On Sunday, James Comey's interview with ABC News will air.
It has already been taped and will be a bombshell I am told:
- Interview left people in the room "stunned"
- Many on hand described it as "surreal"
- Trump should be VERY afraid I am told.

The RNC reportedly has a battle plan to take on Comey, branding him as "Lyin' Comey" through a website, digital advertising and talking points to be sent to Republicans across the country. https://t.co/zSBazROt4x
