I know James Comey’s publisher wants him to matter. I know James Comey wants himself to matter. And I know there are some television hosts who want James Comey to matter. But Comey does not matter.
He shot his credibility with how he handled the Clinton matter. Then he further shot his credibility with his leaks, etc. against the President. In his ABC News interview and his book, Comey has said nothing new and he offered an opinion of the President that was well circulated from others in the 2016 campaign.
Comey thinking President Trump is a stain on the presidency and a liar is what a good number of Americans thought in 2016. But Trump still won. Comey thinking Trump operates as a mob boss is what many people, myself included, said in 2016. But Trump still won.
James Comey simply does not matter. He has offered nothing really new and nothing very original.
What matters is President Trump and his actions. If the President fires Rod Rosenstein, he will further alienate Republicans in Congress. If he fires Robert Mueller, he will probably get himself impeached sooner rather than later.
But if the President keeps on as he is and nothing really changes, nothing will happen to him. The left is peddling conspiracies of the Cabinet ousting the President or the GOP impeaching him or even the Democrats impeaching him. None of that is going to happen in the present status quo.
All the cards in the President’s hands and his actions are what matter. James Comey is yesterday’s news.
