When he realized she might say something that could make him look bad, he did what he usually does; he tried to distract away from that and also cast doubt on Yates herself.

However, Yates was not to be swerved from telling her side of the story. And she did exactly that.

In fact, she said a lot of stuff that makes no doubt made Angry Orange yell at his television a lot. Since I have no urge to post the entire appearance, here's a detailed and entertaining rundown of what happened, as posted in real-time by Eric Garland:
And that was just the beginning of the week!
|Reporters try to get past the Press Office so they can ask Sean Spicer questions.|
Anyway, Comey was dropped like a bad habit, and it seems nobody told Angry Orange's staff why or anything. But not to worry! He had a story ready! It turned out that he was doing along with the advice of Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein! So that fixes everything, right?
The Rosenstein memo is dated...today. So there was no real recommendation from DOJ. Trump wanted to do it, and they created a paper trail.— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) May 9, 2017
Oh. Well, shit.
Okay, okay...Not to worry! Things were still pretty straightforward. Trump wasn't doing this to slow down the current FBI investigation into his campaign's contacts with Russian spies or anything! It was because of the horrible, mean things that Comey did to Clinton during the election.
Seriously. They said that. Well, they said that after Sean Spicer stopped hiding among the Rose Garden shrubbery.
So that explained it all. There was no sketchy fuckery going on, and Comey was let go because he handled the Clinton investigation poorly. Nothing to worry about.
|I'm sure this is some kind of metaphor or something.|
And then Angry Orange threatened to release audio tapes of the conversation he had with Comey when he invited the Director to the White House for dinner. Well, then it came out that Angry Orange asked Comey to pledge his loyalty, and Comey was all, "I think not, dude." At that point, Comey says, he knew his days were numbered. And he was right.
But now, he's getting a lot more attention because people are calling for him to talk to the Senate, but he won't do it until it's in an open forum, because he wants the public to know what happened. Angry Orange is not gonna be happy about that.
|I think it will go a little something like this. Guess who is who in this scenario.|
Oh, and one other thing: As I write this, it is being reported that, when Angry Orange had Russians in the Oval Office last week (where he allowed Russian photographers but not the ones from the U.S. press), it turns out he bragged about some of the extremely classified information he is given. AND HE SHOWED IT TO THEM.
Why has he not been impeached yet? Oh...Right...Because the GOP are spineless assholes who care about nothing more than pushing their destructive agenda through. My bad. I should have remembered.
|I don't know what or why this is, but I wanna do it.|

And there you have it! Now get out there and have a great week! And hope we don't get blown to smithereens before Friday. To help that along, here's a Star Wars version of "Bohemian Rhapsody":
I'm outta here...
All the best,
