    Long ago a wise man told me two truism:
    - Everything you have is for sale for a price. What's it worth to ya?
    - Everything you have is worthless unless someone wants it.


    (Don't believe the "gold" commercials. Even gold is worthless, shiny, but worthless, unless someone wants to barter for it.)

    Asking Comey to effectively put on a press conference to say "not looking at Don" is obstruction?

    Ego expansion ad infinitum, yes, but obstruction?

    *Context matters you said in this thread not that long ago.
    One of the more important results of this story and others like it, past and future, is that a LOT of people in all areas of government will distance themselves from Trump and will step up their CYA protocol. He is clearly unfit and a risk to the careers of those around him.

    What if he is looking at Don? That's another way of him asking that and that's obstruction.

    I... umm... agree with Sic here. There really isn't much to this. It's going to be another sideshow about nothing. And Trump will tweet "See, fake news making issues out of nothing." And the Dems will look silly and we're in for the GOP winning 2018 and 2020.

    Ah, but Scoob, Comey already, earlier, same document, said he/FBI wasn't investigating. Or, was Comey untruthful with the President when he said that*.

    Then effectively nothing is obstruction of justice unless you wack the person.

    I'm sorry but the President of the United States cannot be allowed to influence the FBI Director's investigation of anything. Whether it be him or anybody else. And that's what is done here. At some point ethics has to matter or we might as well burn the Constitution right now.

    There's also this gem:

    He said he would do that and added, “Because I have been very loyal to you, very loyal; we had that thing you know.” I did not reply or ask him what he meant by “that thing.” I said only that the way to handle it was to have the White House Counsel call the Acting Deputy Attorney General. He said that was what he would do and the call ended.

    If there is a bombshell Comey wouldn't put it in the preview statement. But I don't expect that now from anyone but Mueller. Tomorrow will be an episode of Seinfeld.

    Agree. That reads like a capo meeting with a made-man. It makes me itch.

    But, where's the quid pro quo?

    Umm, Comey gets rid of "the cloud", he gets to keep his job. It could not be more obvious.

    While this is a great point, we also have to remember that the standard that is being used for the POTUS is different than the rest of us. Mainly- he's not going to go to court to face obstruction charges, he would face the House then Senate for the same thing. And the result IS NOT a civil penalty- it's just removal from office. So the standards are different.

    Not sure completely *how*, but it has been pointed out that this is not a civil case.

    And where it gets really odd is who is in charge- so that burden could change a lot if the houses both change in 2018.

    I agree he should be hammering this quote for the next two weeks. It will inspire people on both sides, I think. Plenty of GOP voters who love hearing their internal dialogue said aloud

    They should be in CYA mode. Trumpy has shown that anyone and everyone is disposable, and he has no reservations about throwing someone under the bus to save his own azz.

    Everyone in that administration should be hiring a criminal defense attorney, and shutting the hell up. Or else cutting a deal.
    Those are brave men knocking at our door. Let's go kill them!

    It was never confirmed until now. Yeah, it was out there but you have to be very careful with assumptions nowadays. Now it's fact. He can't run. He can try lying some more but he can't do that either.

    The obstruction is him asking Comey to stop looking at Flynn.
