Why Did Comey Write Notes?


Ah, so many things I've wanted to blog about lately. I've had so little time. But this time I've found a few minutes, and I can't help but make a simple observation that I think everyone ought to know about.

By now, many of you have been listening and/or watching the testimony of former FBI Director James Comey to Congress. Lots of interesting things can be found in what he's saying. But one thing stands out, and as usual, nobody but me seems to have noticed it. After Trump clearly told Comey to ease off on the investigations into his campaign's possible connections with Russia, Comey wrote down notes regarding what Trump said.

How interesting. He wrote down notes afterward?

Why on earth would he think that would do any good? If such written records were produced, it would still be hearsay, and he's smart enough to know that. So why write it down?

There's only one reason to write notes down after the fact. The notes can be hidden away and produced in evidence after one is killed.

Yes, James Comey was in fear of his life after his meetings with Trump.

Why wouldn't he be? After all, here was the president clearly breaking the law by telling Comey to break the law. Comey, as a smart FBI man, knew what that meant. It meant that he had just witnessed an impeachable offense, and that the best way for Trump to avoid the consequences was to kill the witness!

The fact that Comey felt the need to make immediate written records, I think, is the most damning part of his entire testimony. He feels that Trump will kill people, even FBI people, if it means staying in office.

You can't kill us all, Donald. You can't kill us all.
