Comey Testimony

It's been a while since I have seen the kind of hype that there has been around having Director Comey testify in front of the Senate today. It seems worse than Watergate! There also seems to be no evidence thus far except for of the here-say variety .

No less than 5 times did he call President Trump (or his administration) a liar. Aside from what that does to the office of the President, it takes away from getting things done that so desperately need to get done. Now, please don't misunderstand, if there has been serious wrongdoing on the part of the Trump administration, then they need to be called out on it. We have already recently had 8 years of "anything-but-transparency" in Washington.

Reading the New York Times would lead one to the conclusion that this was a bad day for the Trump administration. I'm not so sure of that. I'm not huge fan of the President, but have to say that I did not hear anything qualifying as evidence to bring about impeachment proceedings based on obstruction of justice. I heard a lot of opinion, assertion and innuendo that hardly can be conveyed as damning evidence. Frankly, I think most level-headed Democrats would agree with my opinion, in that regard.

When I have time to read more about this and review some of the testimony, my opinion may change. But, just like evidence linking the Trump campaign to collusion with Russia during the presidential election, I just haven't seen a thing yet.

Your thoughts?
