Saw that this morning, and just to be fair

In reply to: Well, he already fired him....

I could also wonder if a something wasn't being drafted in the event that an indictment would be recommended. It's been known that candidates for office will have both an acceptance speech and a concession speech in the can so that their will be no need for a hurried speech writing session that would come out as being awkward. These folks know what the media does with how such things are worded. I get the feeling Comey was a meticulous enough person to understand that whatever statements he made were going to be subject to dissection and analysis by persons looking for hidden treasure.

So far,

In reply to: Saw that this morning, and just to be fair

and to be fair, commentators have asked that same question you just posed........however, nothing has turned up that indicates he DID draft both types. With all the leaking going on (the drafts weren't leaked but were turned over because of a FOIA request), you would think that someone would have leaked the 'other' point of view. Candidates having both types of speeches ready are one thing.....I've never heard of a judge or prosecutor having drafts of reasons for indictments or exonerations ready before they've heard all the evidence........and an FBI agent, who hasn't got the authority to indict, having that kind of draft prepared seems pretty farfetched and unexpected.

I'd say that if drafts for both purposes

In reply to: So far,

were written and known to media outlets that each outlet would cherry pick which to focus on and how to spin it. Frankly, if it's first heard via some media investigation rather than "the horses mouth", I'll remain skeptical. Though I do believe some are more fair than others, I don't fully trust any of the major media outlets to fully present the facts or reliable information.

Evidently the information about the drafts

In reply to: I'd say that if drafts for both purposes

came directly from two members of Congress (Grassley being one of them) who have actually received and read them..........and they are demanding an investigation into it.......which is how the media all know about it already.

It may have happened

In reply to: Evidently the information about the drafts

but I'll wait to hear if Comey has an explanation to clear this up. Frankly, I'm hoping all of these distractions will end soon so that those in congress can stop with the excuses and do what we sent them there to do.

RE:Trump should pardon him, too?

In reply to: Well, he already fired him....

Alleged exoneration?

Not even an "exoneration"...an "ALLEGED exoneration"

It's possible he would...BUT would Comey accept a "pardon BEFORE a trial"?...he might want to let it all hang out/have HIS day in court....

Fresh allegations that former FBI director James Comey began drafting an “exoneration statement

Yet an Aug. 30 letter from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said that interview transcripts show Comey was drafting what they called an “exoneration statement” for Clinton weeks earlier

From this line is seems they were more concerned about the timeline than the "alleged exoneration".
