It’s understandable why everyone is focused on The Greatest Show on Earth, the appearance of James Comey before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, June 8, 2017.

But barring some surprise testimony not in Comey’s prepared statement, the hearing will merely confirm “bad” news for Trump already leaked to the press –...

Okay, I’ll admit this is a good bit of trolling, but I can’t help myself this morning.
