As expected, nothing in Comey’s testimony at the public hearing was “powerful enough to end the Trump presidency literally or figuratively.” According to Sakurai Journal, “in the U.S. some people say Comey’s testimony provided protective fire for Trump.”
We should think that when McCain rejected call for impeachment of President Trump, they were negotiating behind-the-scenes and that they reached agreement along with Brzezinski’s death, rather his murder. Therefore, it was predicted that Comey should not drop a bombshell in his testimony. The result was as expected.
As I commented before, they reached political agreement on the pedophile scandal as represented by “PizzaGate” which would never been pursued beyond necessity. This will postpone mass arrest of influential politicians, which has been rumored to be carried out, for now.

Democrats Are Hoping This Is Watergate – But In Reality Comey’s Testimony Turned Out To Be A Huge ‘Nothing Burger’
During two and a half hours of testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee, former FBI Director James Comey didn’t tell us anything that we don’t already know.
An analysis published by CNBC says that nothing in Comey’s testimony was “powerful enough to end the Trump presidency literally or figuratively”…
The bottom line is that Comey spent a few hours Thursday telling the Senate committee that he felt uncomfortable and even stunned by President Trump’s behavior.
Renowned Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz during a CNN segment on Wednesday night proclaimed that former FBI director James Comey’s prepared testimony indicates that President Donald Trump didn’t commit any crimes.
President Donald Trump’s private attorney said his client felt “completely and totally vindicated” by James Comey’s prepared opening statement to the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Testimony by former FBI Director did not prove any illicit behavior by President Trump
Suspicion on former Justice Department Director Lynch emerges
Former FBI Director James Comey appeared at the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing. It was on June 8. I think that many people expected him to tell a story that Donald Trump directed Comey to drop an investigation of former national security advisor Michael Flynn but I hesitate to say that things went as expected.
Something interesting in the testimony on June 8 is rather Loretta Lynch’s remarks on Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. Lynch served as Attorney General in the Barak Obama administration. According to Comey, she asked him to downplay the Hillary email scandal.
If Comey’s testimony is true, it turns out that he felt pressure from Lunch, not from Trump. However, he made a memorandum only in the case of Trump. In the U.S., some people say that this Comey’s testimony provided protective fire for Trump. It is inevitable that his testimony was interpreted like this.
