Here's what CNN's all over after another House Oversight bombshell about the Bidens

Friend of James Comey lowers the 'boom' to near-inaudible levels with story about curtain camouflage bid

Followers of the news media had been trained this week to wait just a little longer — say, until 5:30 p.m. — for the major newspapers to publish their big scoops: Trump sharing sensitive intel with the Russians, James Comey being pressured to drop his investigation into Michael Flynn, and so on.


Up until now, news about Comey since his firing has come from either unnamed sources close to him or neighbor kids bringing him cookies. But on Thursday, the New York Times introduced the public to Benjamin Wittes, Comey’s friend and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.


Wittes made certain the suspense was palpable. People hadn’t been this on edge since Rachel Maddow teased the reveal of Trump’s tax returns.

We’d found it strange that so many people were claiming the Comey memo, read over the phone to a reporter, was proof of obstruction of justice, while CNN’s Jake Tapper was reporting that someone close to Comey explained that Comey had kept quiet at the time because “he was very sensitive to how difficult this was going to be to work with this president.”


Thursday’s piece in the Times seems to support that assertion. The promised “boom” wasn’t very satisfying, though. Rather than depicting Comey as being strong-armed by the president, it reveals that Comey tried to blend in with the White House curtains:

This next tweet cuts off just when things were getting steamy.




That’s obviously been selectively edited.





Let’s leave Joe Biden out of this.


Tomorrow night’s scoop had better be YUGE.
