This week on the big show, Fingers and Tracy discuss James Comey’s much anticipated appearance in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee, John McCain’s brain malfunction, and Gloria Allred getting booted from the Cosby courtroom.
James Comey’s testimony in from the Senate Intelligence Committee wasn’t as exciting as some had imagined it would be. It did have its entertaining moment though, including this one in which John McCain’s brain shows its age.
Hey Arizona, we know that John McCain’s mother is alive and thriving at the ripe old age of 105 are you planning on letting John keep his seat until he hits the century mark?
CNN has egg on their faces again, from The Hill:
CNN has corrected a Tuesday report after the release of former FBI Director James Comey’s opening statement for his Thursday testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee contradicted the report’s sources.
The CNN report said Comey was expected to dispute President Trump’s claims that Comey said he was not under investigation on multiple occasions.
The report, titled “Comey expected to refute Trump,” was based on unnamed sources and said Comey’s conversations with the president “were much more nuanced,” and that Trump drew the wrong conclusion.
The story was compiled by four CNN journalists, including Gloria Borger, Eric Lichtblau, Jake Tapper and Brian Rokus.
Breitbart has a decent rundown of the highlights of Comey’s testimony.
This was a fun one:

Trump’s attorney rushed to the microphones shortly after Comey’s testimony concluded and issued the following statement:

The biggest revelation of all has to be that Loretta Lynch instructed Comey to refer to the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server as a “matter” not an investigation.
And finally we also learned the Comey is himself a leaker. He admitted to sending a copy of the memos he had written about his meetings with Trump to a friend of his, and then his friend shared a portion of the contents of the memos with the New York Times.
Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication…and WOW, Comey is a leaker!

That James Comey, what a swell guy!
There are of course other things going on in the world, for instance there was a possible terrorist attack that took place in Washington DC on Thursday. This story is still unfolding and we will be following it closely.
The Democrats aren’t about to put all of their impeachment eggs into one basket, so while the Red Hunt is still on and the phrase “obstruction of justice” is repeatedly uttered by people who have no idea what it means, according to The Hill:
Dozens of Democrats in the House and Senate are planning to file a lawsuit against President Trump charging that his vast business empire has created conflicts of interest that violate the emoluments clause of the Constitution, Politico reported Wednesday.
Clearly, they are not going to rest until Trump is impeached.
Reality Winner, an NSA contractor leaked a report to The Intercept that details a Russian hacking scheme that targeted local election officials.
And finally so some lighter fare, everyone’s favorite ambulance chaser Gloria Allred was booted from the Cosby courtroom because she didn’t remember to turn her cell phone off.
