James Comey Vindicated Donald Trump!

While some of his testimony was negative, Comey vindicated Trump when he spoke before Congress.

The New York Post editorial board has declared that James Comey vindicated Donald Trump’s claim that the FBI chief told him personally three times that the President wasn’t under investigation. Comey did say some things that didn’t make Trump look good, but nothing in his testimony alleged obstruction. Remember, the media insisted that Trump was lying when he reported on what Comey told him. But, according to Comey, Trump was absolutely right.

Thus, their headline: “So far, Jim Comey is disappointing the witch-hunters.”

So President Trump was absolutely correct when he insisted — to much derision from Democrats and the mainstream media — that then-FBI Director James Comey assured him three times that he wasn’t personally under investigation.
