I’m trying to watch the live coverage of James Comey and NSA Director Mike Rogers before the House Intelligence Committee.
But, honestly, it’s like pulling teeth.
Here’s what it boils down to.
Comey can’t discuss ongoing investigations. But the Democrat Congressmen can’t stop asking for information regarding the ongoing investigations.
Adam Schiff is a shitpickle who wants to maintain the impression that Trump and Russia stole the election from Hillary Clinton.
So Schiff kept asking Comey questions Comey cannot answer. And the only reason he’s doing it is so he can maintain this fantasy that the Trump campaign was in collusion with Russia.
Trust me, Schiff doesn’t need or want Comey to respond. Schiff could be asking the questions to an empty chair for all he cares. His goal isn’t to get answers, but to spew his conspiracy theory to a captive audience.
The GOP Congressmen seem to be focusing on the problem of classified information being leaked to the press. But since Comey cannot confirm information as being classified, he can’t adequately respond.
The only eye-opening thing I heard was when Gowdy asked Comey if the FBI was investigating the source of the leaks to the Washington Post regarding Mike Flynn. And Comey said they weren’t. Despite the fact that he acknowledges this is flagrantly against the law.
Trey Gowdy was equally stunned by this news.

If Congress were truly interested in knowing the facts, this hearing would have been classified instead of a publicly televised stage show.
But they don’t want to get facts and they don’t want to be briefed. All they want to do is preen for the cameras.
Adam Schiff doesn’t want to have his suspicions confirmed or dispelled. He just wants the public venue to continue to spew his unfounded accusations.
As Brit Hume confirmed just seconds ago:
House Intel Dems using their turns to read into the record the stuff they claim is evidence of Trump/Russia collusion. Comey won't comment.

So what the hell is the point of all this?
