So…for days, I’ve heard of very little news aside from the upcoming testimony of James Comey. As in, it’s today. This morning. But no pressure there.
Yet this is all people seem to want to talk about. Yesterday, the public received some written opening statements by Comey, including the written reports of multiple meetings with President Cheeto.
You know what I think? I doubt that there’s going to be a whole lot of revelations from this testimony today, as there really weren’t a whole lot of revelations from Comey’s prepared statements. We already knew he was investigating the Russian interference with our election, we knew that President Trump had asked Comey to drop an investigation into former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn, and we knew that Comey found being in the same room as Trump to be uncomfortable. This is all old news.
The only interesting thing so far about Comey’s testimonies, to be honest, are his memos. They read a lot less like official documents and more like a thriller with a stalker. They’re quite fascinating, really.
Despite my disbelief that we’ll learn anything interesting today, though, I’ll admit one thing. I’ll be watching it with baited breath the whole time. There’s got to be some little tidbits will prove fun to tweet about.
