It looks like Former FBI Director James Comey’s public testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee is a go, and could happen as early as next week. Comey will be confirming what we all already know: your president attempted to obstruct a federal investigation.

From my post on The Root:

While Comey is unlikely to discuss the details of the FBI’s investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, CNN reports that he seems eager to discuss his interactions with Trump leading up to his firing, which led many to believe the president was intentionally attempting to obstruct the investigation.

And:

It will all be anti-climatic though, because it seems no matter what type of #covfefe your president gets himself into, he manages to escape unscathed and still remain president. I am not at all convinced that Comey confirming the President of the United States actively sought to obstruct a federal investigation is going to do any more damage to him than any of his other screw ups have.
