Once again, Trump attacked the FBI. Once again, Jeff Sessions sat idly by and did not defend the men and women of the FBI.
James Comey, though…
“I want the American people to know this truth: The FBI is honest. The FBI is strong. And the FBI is, and always will be, independent.”

This is the subtweet to end all subtweets.
“If you want truth to go round the world you must hire an express train to pull it; but if you want a lie to go round the world, it will fly; it is light as a feather and a breath will carry it.” Rev. Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1855). pic.twitter.com/YZf4q88wyi

Tomorrow, former FBI Director James Comey will be testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Today, he released the text of his opening remarks. This generated some very funny tweets. Here are just a few…

All right, this part of the testimony is a little weird. pic.twitter.com/r5Ys7id5E1

My rule for gracious living: do not bring up hookers in a conversation with the FBI director unless he asks first.

In case I need to remind you of the general rule here, if you successfully combine sports and politics, you automatically earn tweet of the day
Hell if Comey wanted to be 6'8" and invisible he should have just joined the damn Knicks.

(If that tweet doesn’t strike you as hilarious, you might need to read Benjamin Wittes recounting what James Comey told him about meeting(s) with President Trump. This was also reported in the New York Times. Oh, and the Knicks suck. Sigh.)
Today, Michael Schmidt of the New York Times published a bombshell of an article about how President Trump asked James Comey to end the investigation into Michael Flynn. In chronological order, here are some relevant tweets, both funny and serious:
Imagine hitting 548 homers, making 11 All-Star teams, winning two MVPs and going down in history as the OTHER Mike Schmidt.

If Trump follows the Watergate script any more precisely, the Nixon library will be able to sue him for plagiarism.
