    That's not exactly the biggest achievement though is it? I'm not saying he makes him self less credible than the worlds least credible man, but to release a book trying to profit off all this and angling for a TV gig definitely hurts his credibility. I entirely believe him, but by trying to profit off it you give your critics the stick to beat you with

    Why shouldn’t he profit from it? He’s been sacked and presumably had his pension fucked in the process by the orange turd. He’s got every right to make some money at the expense of Shitgibbon’s non-existent reputation.

    Well there is nothing stopping you, but at the same time you have to realise that you harm your credibility by doing so. As soon as you aim to financially profit from your story, you give your enemies all the ammunition they need to discredit you by saying that's your motive. Person lies for money is not a hard sell, especially when the loons who want to believe Trump would buy just about anything.

    The timing as well is very dubious and opportunistic, I'm kind of amazed he's allowed to release this while the investigation is ongoing?

    Firing him probably prevents any limitation on his action. This book just gives his side of what has been said about him really, and most people are allowed to defend themselves against perceived lies.

    I see Trumpy is claiming that McCabe and Comey are the same, when the DoJ report says McCabe lied to Comey and Comey was very careful to stick to the rules. Combining the two is either the sign of someone who doesn't care about truth, listens to Fox too much or is just a complete bellend.

    All that should mater to anybody is if he us telling the truth or not. But, you seem to think the truth takes a secondary position because he will make money. How fucked up and Trumpian is that? Of course his lackeys will try to tarnish the guy, for the simple reason they know their lying **** guy is up to his neck in slime.

    How anybody could believe a pathological liar is beyond me.

    Hi mate, welcome to the real world, it sucks here. "all that should matter" is unfortunately irrelevant here, unlike in your idealistic society you've imagined. If we were living in your ideal world, none of this would matter as no one would have allowed a pathological liar to bullshit his way into the position in the first place.

    Trump is on trial here and his lawyers (and the right wing media) are going to defend him by attacking his accusers credibility, that's just what always happens. All they need to do is create doubt that he is 100% credible and Comey has made their jobs a hell of a lot easier by giving them this ammunition.

    The loons who want to believe Trump will believe Trump irrespective of what anyone says.

    You may have a point about the timing of the book, as it may prejudice some aspects of the investigation. Trump’s lawyers will certainly use it to his advantage in any impeachment hearings.

    Trump has been poisoning the well (most every well, actually) for months. Trump is nothing like “on trial” with his base. They already believe Comey is full of it because Donald has told them so. This book doesn’t do anything but give Comey a forum to answer the torrent of character assassination already leveled against him.

    Silly post.

    There aren’t going to be any real impeachment hearings unless Trump’s milqetoast GOP defenders (not his most rabid ones — those who suddenly believe their own careers and the GOP mandate generally are in peril) flip on him, like they did Nixon. If there are it won’t be because the case relies materially on Comey.

    If what he says is true, eventually the ammunition they feel they have is on a fuse. His motives will not feature in any investigation. What he says will. The right wing press and The ****’s lackeys cannot divert a criminal case. It only makes it worse for them.

    I am well aware of the real world. The only way to counter corruption is a stealthy collection of evidence. The rising panic in the responses, tells you all you need to know about how their arses are twitching.
