The Daily Combover - June 7, 2017

I don't think you're ready for this jelly

Not content with firing the person heading up his investigation, Trump is doing everything short of declaring executive privilege to distract the media from Comey's testimony (preview it here). In total he has:

1. Promised to live Tweet responses to Comey.

2. Made an announcement for Comey's replacement.

3. Recorded ads to run on the major news stations during the testimony:
An ad created by the pro-Trump Great America Alliance — a nonprofit "issues" group that isn't required to disclose its donors — casts Comey as a "showboat" who was "consumed with election meddling" instead of focusing on combating terrorism. The 30-second spot is slated to run digitally on Wednesday and appear the next day on CNN and Fox News.
I guess he's worried people actually do watch CNN?

4. And if if all that fails, at least he knows he can distract his Fox News viewers by giving a speech at the exact same time Comey is testifying. As if Fox would put Comey on over Trump.

Of course the strangest thing Trump said today is "I wish him luck," when asked about Comey's testimony. Does Trump really think this is all just a game?

Obstruction of Justice can yield a 10-year prison sentence -- long enough that Trump may die behind bars if given a maximum sentence. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. If the #TrumpRussia investigation finds him guilty of a treasonous cover-up, he could face the death penalty.

Catch you on the flip side.
