Comey may have gotten his man

Jennifer Rubin has a very good column, well worth reading. In the column she quotes Chuck Schumer::

Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) was somber on the floor of the Senate. “In a week full of revelation after revelation, on a day when we thought things couldn’t get any worse, they have.” He continued, “I was shaken by the report in the New York Times that alleged that the president tried to shut down an active FBI investigation into a close political associate. And we are only one day removed from stunning allegations that the president may have divulged classified information to a known adversary.” He warned, “Concerns about our national security, the rule of law, the independence of our nation’s highest law enforcement agencies are mounting. The country is being tested in unprecedented ways. I say to all of my colleagues in the Senate: History is watching.”

Earlier in the column Rubin writes:

One is tempted to marvel at the sheer stupidity of Trump, who somehow thought he could not only fire but humiliate the FBI director who was investigating him and his administration with no consequence. But Trump has always been Trump’s greatest liability — the hubris, the ignorance, the impulsiveness.
