      More information on today's hearing:

      http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politi...cid=spartandhp
      We are not now that strength which in old days
      Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
      Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
      To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

        Did you actually watch today's hearing?

        There was little partisanship in the hearing today. Senator McCain did have an Alzheimer's moment, however.

          We knew who was involved in the decisions and what the harm was.
          Therefore, it was reasonable to investigate whether those decision makers knew or should have known that the risk to those 4 people was unreasonable.

          When the government does things like that, there will be investigations.

          In this case, we don't know the harm and we don't know the crime.
          But we do know there is no evidence of collusion.
          It is an investigation in search of justification for its existence
          The Russian government conducted influence operations against the US through various intelligence organs. Those actions need to be investigated.

          I never saw so many people trying to stop the public from finding out about this.

            He told an associate to leak the memo he author. It was in no way classified nor did it contain classified information. Nothing wrong with it.

                If you strip away all the side issues the take home message from testimony was

                Trump did try and stop the investigation of Flynn

                when he was unable to make Comey drop the investigation he fired him.


                between Trumps statements and Comey testimony you reach the more than likely standard but not the beyond a reasonable doubt

                  So you are saying either Drudge made all these up or all these "various media sources" made up/faked their content ???

                    Who exactly is trying to stop the public from finding out about this? Did you miss where Congress was investigating that very thing? Or are you equating our mockery of your Russian collusion tin foil hat conspiracies with suppression?

                      He was appointed by the same Fool that appointed Brennan, a guy with admitted communist leanings, to be the head of the CIA.

                        It was Comey's personal document, not a government document. He could do what he wanted with it. And now the Special Counsel has all of the personal memos.
                        If Comey wrote down the content of a conversation he had with Donald Trump, with the former acting in his capacity as FBI Director and the latter in his capacity as President, then I don't see how he has a leg to stand on. The memo made not be a "government document" but the content of the document would certainly stand as government property.

                          Personally I think this election pushed many people over the edge into insanity. Just look at the Anti-fa loons. I think they didn't have much of a hold on their sanity but when hillary lost they just went insane.

                          Btw, I love your limericks... Those are pretty good.

                            But government property is not the same as classified material. A conversation between two government officials -- assuming that the issues in question are not classified -- is by default a matter of public record. The president's papers are the President's property, as established by Act of Congress. Therefore, Pres Trump's recording (if such actually exists) of his conversations with fmr Dir Comey are presidential property -- but Comey's memos of said conversations are Comey's property, not the President's. If the content of said conversations was classified, then all this is moot: then Comey should never write memos, personal journals, logs, diaries, etc, about any classified content, whether discussed with the President, or any other Federal official. Any all all commentary and/or records of classified content are to be made through approved US Gov't channels only.

                            Am I correct in assuming that there will be further hearings later on, behind closed doors, in order to addressed classified content?

                                If the memo was on letterhead paper, or done in the official FBI format, it was the government's. Hand written notes, are personal documents.
