That "meddlesome priest"
Just a few things the major media failed to emphasize:
✽ Bill Clinton's tarmac meeting with Loretta Lynch on June 27, 2016, was the straw that broke the camel's back for Comey, leading to his July 5 hatchet job on Hillary. Did Bill intend to screw her, or was it just passive aggression? You decide.
✽ The persistent parsing of the word "hoping" by Senator James Risch is a pretty clear indicator that the Utah Republican really believes Tr*mp is guilty of obstruction of justice. As Queen Gertrude said in Hamlet (Act III, Scene II), "The lady doth protest too much, methinks."
✽ Somebody would have had to explain to Tr*mp who Becket and Henry II were, and the relevance of the "meddlesome priest" comments. He probably didn't get it.
Correction: an earlier iteration of this post substituted "turbulent" for "meddlesome." Although more frequently cited as Henry II's description of Becket, it was not the analogy employed by Comey.
