Comey Testimony Proves Neither Vindicating Nor Incriminating For Trump

completely vindicated” the President, I do not believe that the testimony materially altered the legal position of the President.  I believe that Comey both helped and hurt himself.  He did an excellent job in explaining why he only discussed the content of the memos with his staff, but he also admitted to being a leaker and showed repeatedly failures in ethical confrontations with superiors.  There is reportedly a call for Comey to return.  He may find the return appearance more challenging than the first.
