Comey paints a portrait of Trump: 'Will no one rid me of this meddlesome priest?': "Much as Republicans tried to make this about Comey’s conduct — his failure to tell the president not to ask him about Flynn, his decision to leak the contents of his memo — Comey succeeded in painting a disturbing picture of a president trying to convert an FBI director into his minion and trying to get his friend into the clear. And just as disturbing is the realization that in the most devastating attack on American democracy, Trump cares only about Trump." – By Jennifer Rubin – WP, and other opinions

Angus King (I-Maine), who incidentally was also a star in Wednesday’s hearing when senior intelligence officials refused to answer questions without legal justification. Trying to determine what Trump was asking him in the Feb. 14 Oval Office meeting, King asked whether this was not a Henry II situation, quoting Shakespeare’s great line as the British monarch expressed exasperation with his nemesis, Thomas Becket (later murdered in the play):”Will no one rid me of this meddlesome priest?” Comey echoed the line, agreeing that he had a similar thought.”
