James Comey has been testifying today and in the course of his testimony has exonerated President Trump, made it clear that the President was never under investigation, and in a surprising revelation admitted it was he who leaked information to the press. Furthermore, he brought "obstruction" into the conversation with the Loretta Lynch/Bill Clinton tarmac meeting. Sounds like a another disaster for the Democrats. Thoughts?

I think this is the first time a sitting President has ever been called a liar in front of a Congressional hearing - imagine if someone had called Obama a liar - the world would still be on fire over it.
Ralph, I seem to remember Congressman Joe Wilson (R) screaming "YOU LIE!" at President Obama, during a speech to a joint session of Congress.
So, is the world still on fire?
Thanks for offering this piece of information Lisa - I can always count on you to help keep the discussion factual as possible
Trump is a chronic liar and a scammer, everyone know this except you. He won 'liar of the year' in 2015
Hate him all you like ptosis - that's your right as an American citizen. I wasn't aware America had an official designation for liar of the year. Did Bill Clinton or Obama get the award over their whoppers?
PolitiFact awarded Donald Trump its 'Liar of the Year' in 2015. The Lie of the Year for 2013 was "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,"
Carolyn, Thumb up. The right will see what they want to see, but they have evidence, the left doesn't. Evidence: Fact, Comey Admitted Leaking, intent of leak, he dn provide orig memos, which is FBI property He leaked b4. He gave NO evid ag Trump!
Mike. I agree. It is a work product, and therefore belongs to the FBI not him. He admits he leaked this one, but did he leak any others. Does anyone know what Comey and Mueller discussed?
Notice his friend has gone into hiding and it's rumored Comey has leaked to him before
I think there are a lot of dots that need connecting centering on Comey. A big dot is why did Splc Mueller talk with him before the hearing. Sort of like Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch? He dn provide best evidence, actual FBI orig of his memos,
But it's not on the FBI servers.....wonder why ?
What I got out of the hearing was that Comey was biased and working against the country, and the people. The FBI record disagrees with Comey's statement about the honor of the FBI. Look at the best example against that in the J Edgar Hoover yrs.
How about unauthorized disclosure of privileged communications with the president? At least that's what Trump's lawyer accused Comey of after today's admission of the Comey Leak...
Unlikely that executive privilege will be applicable here, as Trump has publicly spoken about it thereby the Prez declassified it by his own actions. (again)
Privileged communication exists between doctor and patient, lawyer and client, priest and penitent, husband and wife. On what planet is unclassified conversation between the President and the FBI director privileged? That won't fly.
Trumpland, where sharing classified info with russia is fine and dandy, too.
