Donald Trump Channels OJ Attorney, Lays Into Comey Testimony On Social Media

Fired FBI director James Comey appeared in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee yesterday in a moment that was hyped beyond belief. An endless amount of analysis was devoted to what he may say in the days leading up to his appearance, and that was followed by an infinite amount of analysis once he was done testifying. In a nutshell, his testimony included nothing earth shattering. The world is still spinning on its axis, and there remains absolutely no evidence that President Donald Trump is under any kind of investigation, or that he will be anytime soon.

As the Daily Mail shares, reaction to Comey’s testimony pretty much split along party lines with the exception of a few outliers. Those that wanted to hear an indictment of Trump heard one in their interpretation of Comey’s remarks, while those that insist there’s nothing to see here walked away with plenty of support for their argument as well. In short, there really wasn’t too much substance there, regardless of which way you want to spin it.

Famed attorney and legal scholar Alan Dershowitz, whose storied resume includes being a part of the OJ Simpson ‘dream team,’ offered up his bottom-line assessment of Comey’s testimony.

“We should stop talking about obstruction of justice. No plausible case. We must distinguish crimes from pol sins,” he shared on social media.

Trump would jump all over that statement and share it with his followers, and Dershowitz would provide some more context for his remarks during an appearance on Fox News.

“The president has the authority to direct the head of the FBI to stop investigating anyone,” he said. “I've been saying this for months.”

Trump would also offer up his summary of things. Of course, that came on social media.

“Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication...and WOW, Comey is a leaker!” Trump wrote.

As for the leaks, Comey did acknowledge that he provided a friend with some information to provide to the press. As for why he didn’t do that himself, he offered up an explanation that didn’t leave him coming out smelling like roses.

“I was worried the media was camping at the end of my driveway at that point, and I worried it would be like feeding seagulls at the beach,” he said.

Fair point on the press, but why put it out there at all? Those actions sparked a feeding frenzy in their own right, and it did absolutely nothing to calm the storm. In fact, it exacerbated it to an even larger magnitude. It’s an incredibly poor look for Comey, and no amount of spin is going to make that stain go away. He showed that he’s willing to share things with the press if it serves the purpose of advancing his personal agenda, but he’ll claim some sort of moral high ground when it comes to answering pointed questions about things. Double standard, anyone?

Dershowitz is not pleased with Comey’s choice in this situation.

“I thought it showed a lot of cowardice,” he said.
