FBI Director James Comey has spoken. Donald Trump is in fact under investigation for colluding with Russia to hack the 2016 presidential election. Is this the smoking gun that rises to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors to impeach Donald Trump?

On Monday, Comey testified before the House Intelligence Committee with words that have rocked the political world and totally humiliated Donald Trump. Yes, Trump and his cronies are currently under investigation by the FBI for working with a foreign government to fix a US presidential election. No, Barack Obama did not wiretap Trump.
Proving that he is indeed a bonafide circus clown and not the true leader of the free world, Donald Trump refused to admit he was wrong and has instead quadrupled down on his outlandish claims against his predecessor. He once again took to his social media play toy of choice (Twitter) and once again reiterated his nonsensical allegation that Barack Obama committed a crime and had his “wires tapped.”
To date, the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, congressional members on both sides of the aisle, and Barack Obama himself have all rebuked such malarky and made it crystal clear that no such wiretapping ever occurred. However, Donald Trump remains the ONLY person who has ever claimed it did and remains the only person still doing so.
Then, Trump took to Twitter to denounce the most serious and embarrassing allegation against him: collusion with Russia.
“James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia. This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it!” Trump posted.
Sorry, Donald. This is not fake news concocted by the Democrats as a political ploy. The testimony from Director Comey is not “fake.” No matter how much you tweet, you cannot change the fact that your own national intelligence team is actively attempting to determine if a foreign power tried to manipulate our election. No amount of tweets, no amount of twisting of words from your mouthpiece (Sean Spicer), and no amount of political spin by Fox News or Breitbart can successfully discount or conceal the reality. Both James Comey and National Security Agency chief Michael S. Rogers have now painted a very bleak picture.
Although the Comey statement was not surprising, it was quite devastating. The head of the FBI basically called the President of the United States a liar and a potential conspirator in an international election hacking scheme. That act is not only humiliating for the chief executive but virtually unprecedented in American politics.
Donald Trump lied about Barack Obama spying on him. Donald Trump lied about the British government being a participant in any efforts for Barack Obama to spy on him. Now, Donald Trump may have lied about colluding with the Russian government to hack the US presidential election to his favor.
As the old saying goes, “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.” From the words and actions of James Comey, there appears to be so much smoke, fire alarms may begin to go off any minute now.
