I concur. Glad you put some context around it for the sake of intelligent discussion regarding the quote.

I see what you mean about context and the question was tailored to address interference by DOJ higher ups.
The tell on this is that Comey said any attempt to stop an investigation for political reasons would be a BFD. Given his history of standing on principle and threatening to resign to defend that principle, it would be totally out of character and at odds with his testimony if he was pressured to drop the investigation and did not make a stink.

Until I see the memo and hear from Comey in sworn testimony, I have to call BS on the memo story.

Maxine Waters is such an embarrassment. People like her would ruin this country.

That's outrageous! And totally biased. At least pimps provide a service that many people want.

You know what's sad about that monologue? Their laughter. They think it's a big joke.

If I was a lib and believed what Oliver was saying I wouldn't be laughing. This isn't a joke.

But their laughter makes me realize I have nothing to worry about***********: conservatives will
continue to make the important decisions while the children sit back and make fun of us.

No one is laughing at the base situation, we should all be incredibly concerned that this piece even had to be made. People are laughing at the jokes being made in the piece.

This really has nothing to do with being liberal or conservative, it has everything to do with the mounting facts which he does a good job at presenting. Sure, they might be conveyed in a way to make a point but they are all certainly true.

The place where decisions that affect all our lives are made.

The GOP can't even agree on the things they agree on right now... so despite having a majority in both the House and the Senate, I'm not sure you can accurately call that "control" of Congress

True. In their wisdom, our Founders made it difficult for any individual or group to run roughshod over the country.

I'm not sure that I can ever oppose that, as much as I would like to see some measures passed, I don't think I am willing to give up checks and balances for them.
