The James Comey Pratfall. In his highly-anticipated Congressional testimony, the fired FBI Director dashes the hopes of Trump critics while managing to out himself as a "leaker." A truly impressive display of Deep State malfeasance. We study the various self-serving games played by Comey and marvel at his "sour grapes" persona. And we ask: Where is Comey's leaked memo right now? Where is Daniel Richman? They both seem to have gone missing. Meanwhile, John McCain embarrasses himself with his doddering, confused questions from the Senate panel, then goes on to defend embattled Mayor of London Sadiq Khan. Senescence?

Surprisingly, by firing Comey, Trump has created some unforeseen, uncomfortable exposures in the Beltway. With Listener Calls & Music via George Strait, Idina Menzel, Clean Bandit and Gov't Mule.
