We may be learning fairly soon whether or not the supposed memo that James Comey wrote to himself to document the “really scary” meeting he had one on one with President Trump ever really existed or if it was just a stupid, reflexive lie that now has him in serious legal jeopardy. If not, his perhaps former close friend, Columbia Law Professor Daniel Richman, may be facing some legal problems of his own.
Richman has been ordered by a bipartisan group of high-ranking Republican and Democrat Senators, Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sheldon Whitehouse, (D-RI) to produce the “let this go” memo he leaked to the NYT. They did so in a letter sent Thursday to the Columbia professor after his identity had become known through revelations made in Comey’s hearing testimony and verified by Richman directly.
In the letter the Senators depict the memo describing the supposed attempted obstruction of justice by President Trump, as the Democrats would define it, as being “relevant to the Judiciary Committee’s ongoing investigative efforts.” In the letter Richman was given a deadline of midnight Friday to comply.
Richman has reportedly been in hiding ever since his identity was unveiled by Comey during his Thursday testimony. If there is such a memo, it will surely be scrutinized. If there isn’t one, it’s likely that either James Comey has lied under oath or his bagman has destroyed government property. The odds are good Richman will be called to testify about the events as well.
The tangled web has already blown up on Comey and his puppeteers with the admission of collusion between Clinton and Lynch. The Democrats may end up wishing they’d just accepted their loss and shut the hell up before this is all over.
