We Think Trump Just Sent A Veiled Threat To James Comey Ahead Of Testifying

Beleaguered former FBI Director James Comey is set to testify on Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee. While he’s already testified twice before the committee, this time different questions will be answered.

Here is what senators want to find out from Comey in this testimony, via the LA Times:

Everything they can involving the Russia investigation and Trump’s directives to Comey. Questions that are likely to be posed include:

  • What are the details of the meeting between Trump and Comey?
  • Did Trump demand Comey’s loyalty, as reports have suggested?
  • Did Comey find any evidence that the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia?

Go in-depth at LA Times for extensive detail on what has already been covered and what you can expect on Thursday.

Meanwhile, in Trumplandia….we think Trump is deliberately displaying aggressive behavior to intimidate James Comey before he testifies.

This bizarre comment to reporters, with Trump saying “I wish him luck.”

Furthermore, as we reported this morning, a paranoid Trump has threatened to live-tweet during Comey’s testimony, according to the Washington Post’s Rob Costa:

“I was just talking to some White House officials this morning and their view is that the president himself wants to be the messenger, his own warrior, his own lawyer, his own spokesman. Some outside people, some surrogates will be available.”

“But the president is expected to be tweeting on Thursday in response to Comey, not to stay quiet during the testimony. Because he himself wants to be the one driving the process.”

Bring it, bruh. I don’t think Mr. Comey is afraid of you.

Let’s all tune in to watch the testimony live. Here’s how you can watch it. CNN will be streaming it live, but you can also watch it on smartphones and devices via the CNN app.
