In the last few days, two things have had Donald Trump, aka Putin’s puppet so engaged that he is apparently beside himself and constantly spewing rage. The first is the FBI raids on his personal shyster, bag man and strong-arm man, Michael Cohen. And the second is the contents of James Comey’s new book, A Higher Loyalty.

I realize that this piece is reprinted from Salon, not original to AlterNet, but frankly, it shocked me that anyone writing for either would use the "phrase, continues the LEGEND of the 'pee tape.'" Is Rosza another one questioning the accuracy of the "Steele dossier"? Here's aother of my patented rhetorical questions - how can we ever expect anyone in his base to ever believe us when we ourselves cannot even decide who to trust?

You are right that the other points are at least as interesting, maybe more interesting. But we can get so focused on Trump that we forget that the slander of people of integrity is a by-product of investigating him. That bothers me. I think I have integrity, and I believe that Mueller, Comey and Steele have it also. Integrity doesn't, thank God, mean never making mistakes, and too many people are jumping on mistakes, particularly in Comey's case, to undermine his integrity. I have been slandered (I suppose technically not, since I can't point to any financial loss, but in the false-rumors-publicly spread sense), and I assure you it is not fun. I hate it when I see that happening to someone else.

Personally, and to me in my honest opinion, I hope that *Путинская шлюха get's everything he deserves from this investigation. I can think of no one better for prison time, and his little cronies too.

Never mind the Pee Tape - I'm waiting for what the raid on Cohen's office reveals.

Good article. tRump sure has be tweeting about the book. Saying all sorts of negative things abut Comey. He really must be speaking about himself. Looking forward to seeing the 20/20 feature tonight. Thanks TomCat

Rosza, the author of this Alternet piece, seems to belong to the category “People who can’t forgive Comey for costing Clinton the election”. His book review, if we can call it that, is too full of insinuations (‘Given that Comey has an obvious bias’, ‘Comey continues the legend of the “pee tape”‘, ‘ [Comey] even implying that he acted as he did’…) to think otherwise. The book review in the NYT (James Comey Has a Story to Tell. It’s Very Persuasive.) does far more justice to Comey for those who have forgiven him Clinton’s loss or who never put it all down to him in the first place, and portray him as a man of integrity who is well aware of his personal shortcomings.

But both articles come to the same conclusion: Whatever you personally think of Comey, his side of the story is far more believable than that of Drumpf, the man who who his own lawyers didn’t allow to be alone in an interview with Mueller, afraid he’d perjure himself within minutes.

Drumpf has already shown his “presidential approach” to Comey’s book coming out; he must be blowing his top now Comey spoke on these issues thoughtfully, but in less “eloquent” terms, that is statements even Drumpf would understand, in the ABC 20/20 interview. The question is now: Will anyone be near enough and courageous enough to get his phone away from Drumpf before he gives Mueller/FBI even more work?

Believe anything, anything, anything that tDump claims? Right, that’s the ticket, not with your brain! I watched the Comey interview last night, much of it coming in way below the advertised hype. But, at the very end, Comey was asked whether, or not, he believed tDump is fit to be president….”No.” “No,” on moral grounds!!
Comey had, earlier, liked tDump to Mafioso, whom Comey had gotten to know about as a prosecutor in NYC. tDump had tried to make everything about himself (DUH!) as in acting like he was the head of a mob “family.”
So, tDump has been tweeting like crazy, about Comey: Well, one can easily tell who dump feels most threatened by, at any given moment, by looking at his tweets.

I read a poll that gave trust of Comey vs. trust of Trump a 20 pt. margin towards Comey...

Well, I've had some fun with this. Trump is such an easy target and one of my life goals is get blocked by him on Twitter. Which would be impossible to say with ANY other president. So here some things I've mentioned to him lately.

Donald J. Trump
Verified account @realDonaldTrump
"I never asked Comey for Personal Loyalty. I hardly even knew this guy. Just another of his many lies. His “memos” are self serving and FAKE!"

Well, if the choice is to believe you, whom I have SEEN do and say things on video that you later lie about and say you didn't do, or a career prosecutor with an impeccable record of honesty and service? I believe Mr. Comey.

"Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past. I have many (too many!) lawyers and they are probably wondering when their offices, and even homes, are going to be raided with everything, including their phones and computers, taken. All lawyers are deflated and concerned!"

No other president ever needed "too many lawyers", you know why? They were men of honor, who believed in the rule of law and who brought decency and trust to their term as President. Not disgrace, not collusion with a foreign enemy, not sexual predation. Only you need lawyers.

"Slippery James Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!"

Never going to happen. He was revered by all who served with him. YOU, on the other hand, are already the most despised of ALL 45 presidents and will be the only one convicted of treason. The only one to be incarcerated for collusion and suborning our electoral process.

"Russia and China are playing the Currency Devaluation game as the U.S. keeps raising interest rates. Not acceptable!"
Oh, really, you do something ill-advised, they respond, that's unacceptable? New to this business of politics are you? So, what do you propose to do about this? Throw words, make it worse by insulting them, or work with them to come to a reasonable compromise? Not @GOP strength.

"Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers. Disgruntled, he, McCabe, and the others, committed many crimes!"
You're really good at making stuff up, well, no, you're not, you're a horrible and irredeemable liar, but this isn't even close to truth, and you know it. Not that such a thing ever matters to you. He's right, truth is critically important for a president. You should try it.

Comey also points out, in the paper's synopsis today, that a critical attribute for a president to have perhaps more than any other is truthfulness. This president is known for his lack of veracity, he is morally unfit to be president. I agree. I also think he's morally deficient in many other areas of life, another article in today's paper was about how he's enriched himself at OUR expense. The 2016 election has to be overturned at the conclusion of the Mueller investigation, I honestly don't see another just outcome. Simple impeachment, even if it includes Pence, is not enough for what was done, by the upper echelons of the republican party as well Trump and his campaign, including Pence. Overturn that election, make the arrests and let the trials begin.

Does it surprise anyone that Comey has a tender view towards Obama? I know, that is a rhetorical question around here. Obama was a class act. I doubt the ogre's base would recognise that though.

Drumpf to a mob boss? That is a no brainer. Drumpf has the vendetta aspect down pat!

Drumpf's physical appearance? The ladies are not impresses either, especially by those tiny hands that are more like an octopus's creepy little feelers.

The Liar-in-Chief is captain CHAOS . . . totally unbelievable!

There's that vendetta again! #6 shows nothing but projection! Back at you Drumpf . . . as a piece of projection it is probably the only time in his life that he was right!

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

AMEN Gene!!!

Shoot~ I missed the TV spot, but, without seeing it, of course, my sense of trust leans heavily towards Comey, no matter how many errors or mistakes he may have made. It goes without saying that I have little to absolutely NO trust in Trumpelstiltskin, who plays us all for his own con-games of personal acquisition. Thanks for the extra bonus of Twitter correspondence, Gene! Fun to read! Fun to ponder if one iota of conscience could be flickering in the twitter's MAD-man rushing fingers from that fluff of feathery hair still spayed to his angry greedy tortured brain. How did all this happen? America's dark side is revealed by its weaknesses that have gone along for years unchecked: corruption, greed, and dishonesty for the sake of profits and success. We let it get this bad. Now, we have to fix it. That's the only way. We must resist, persist, remove, speak out, and consistently do our best to get things on the track of doing right and doing good. And, we must do it as quickly as we can, because, those who are pocketing cash, and gaining power will not easily let go of any of their gains. The United States of America must be better tomorrow than all of its yesterdays. We can do that. We must do that. We're going to do that. Trumpelstiltskin is the alarm bell, the canary in the cave, the face of a false leader of our Constitution. Perhaps, he was just what this country needed to get the people to wake up and see what is going on all around us. I for sure, feel wide awake now. It's good to read so many comments which express similar thoughts. Thanks, TC, always!!!

Gene, Gene, Gene......Bravo!

and well said Dot.

Time for a new beginning, America needs to get back in the saddle. Right, left, up (1%), and down (our homeless and mentally ill), not one against the other, but rather one together with the other, not the same but in unison, not afraid of our differences, but excited and enthusiastic over the power and strength of our diversity. How about I've got your back on our march to a rich life of productivity, achievement, health, knowledge and success. Brothers and sisters willing to compromise to see/saw our way to the success that we have not yet envisioned but that is well within our reach.

Let's regain our footing, Bernie Sanders has some good ideas, how about we find some others and put some folks in place that can and will make it happen ( and that might be you ). 2018 mid-terms, flush out the turds and fill the bowl with the clean and fresh. Clean it up, put it in gear and move it forward.
