Two and one-half hours of Comey today: "Catnip for the Media"

On tonight's Special Report the Comey hearing was in the spotlight. Howie Kurtz noted that Comey criticized leaks while confessing that he has been a high-level leaker himself! He leaked his memo of his meeting with Trump to a Columbia law professor named Daniel Richman and asked him to leak it to a reporter at the New York Times.

I liked it when Congressman James Risch of Idaho asked Comey if he is aware of any criminal charges ever having been filed against someone for "hoping." That's a reference to Trump saying to Comey that he hopes the Flynn investigation can be concluded soon.

South Korea's new president hopes to appease North Korea by pulling the plug on the THAD missile defense system.
