    Here's what I actually said:


    I don't know if he's telling the truth or not in either instance. I sincerely doubt any other poster here does either, and are simply offering opinions on what they prefer to believe.


    What you infer from that is up to you, and I have no control that, and therefore am not responsible for it. You are free to conclude any absurd notion you wish to, as you have demonstrated here.

    Fine. Then perhaps you believe Ms. Pelosi and the others in the video are perhaps less-than-trustworthy when they attack someone.

    I have no issue with that.

    Comey incredibly inserted himself in the election, against DOJ/FBI policy. Heck, at one point Trump even claimed that was why he fired Comey...because Comey mistreated Hillary!!

    Dems never claimed Comey was lying, just that he was wrong to do what he did.
    The only person claiming Comey is a liar....is Trump.

    Well then, Trump could say Comey isn't credible, but instead he screeches "Comey is a LIAR."
    Apparently, Trump has decided that LIAR is a more powerful word than credible.

    They mean essentially the same thing, so you're complaint is over a matter of style rather than about substance.

    It could be that both Trump and the Democrats are wrong about Comey's credibility, or it could be that they are both correct. What it can't be is both.

    While you'd like a blanket statement on who to trust, you and I both know that the circumstances and individuals involved matter. It is certainly a case by case evaluation.

    I think Comey was probably wrong to make a comment on the investigation into Clinton's email server. That should have been up to the Attorney General. You do realize that regardless of Comey's statement, Lynch could easily have overridden his evaluation and gone ahead with a prosecution....right?

    Trump calling someone a LIAR has more of a negative connotation than anyone calling Comey not credible.....regardless of the definition.

    Do you seriously judge a person over ONE event rather than take their full history into account?

    For example, I only judge Trump as a mentally unstable, personality-disordered, pathological lying bully, know-nothing in view of his entire history as an adult.

    I judge Comey as a good man for his years of dedicated and unblemished service to the country and not for the one instance of improperly insinuating himself into an election.

    I'm not asking for a blanket statement on anything. Either you trust Democrat politicos when they go on the offensive and attack someone, or you do not. I don't really care which one it is, it doesn't affect me.

    What I am pointing out is that many of those who now trust Comey implicitly are the same folks who had no problem of attacking his credibility. It's less about Mr. Comey than it is about whether or not what he says tickles their ears.

    It appears the Democrats in the video were more than ready to judge Mr. Comey. One accused him of destroying the FBI's credibility as well as his own.

    As for me, I don't know whether he has lied or not. Neither do you for that matter. Let's not pretend differently.

    I'm assuming you posted that video of Pelosi for a reason.

    I did. It shows what some prominent Democrats had to say about Mr. Comey. Their opinion seems to vary with wind direction.

    does Trump have any credibility in your opinion?
