Prove? Of course it doesn't "prove" anything, Henry. We don't even have any evidence other than 4th hand reports that he even said it or that President Trump said what he did to prompt it. I do not even claim that my interpretation of Comey's words is right. Only that it is one possible interpretation.
But we also do not have any accounts that Comey said anything along the lines of "How dare you suggest that I nobble the investigation of Flynn?"
Or that he reported the perceived obstruction as required by law.
Or that he even perceived it as obstruction as all right minded progressives seem to assume.
So I certainly think that one interpretation might be that in response to President Trump saying "I want you to call off the investigation" (Not what he said but what people are claiming he meant) Comey responded, "That's probably a good idea" Again, not what he said but how it could be interpreted.
So what do you think Comey meant by his response that Flynn is a good guy?
What do you make of the fact that Comey violated the law and jeopardized his law license by not reporting this?
How do you
interpret Comey's words, Henry?
