so keeping Comey honest is somehow "dishonest"


Witness intimidation is illegal, and in Trump's case it constitutes an abuse of power, in my opinion.

Keeping someone honest doesn't equate with witness intimidation. Intimidation requires a threat. There is no threat in the tweet.
Unless ypu add words to it.... like, 'or else'.

Is Comey involved in a trial? How come he is a witness?

He's just another unemployed free american.


Comey invited to testify before Senate panel



Ousted FBI Director James Comey has been invited to testify in a closed session next Tuesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee, according to a committee aide.


It blatantly appears that Trump is trying to affect Comey's testimony in his very public Tweet.

Do you think it is okay if Trump was recording Comey?

ETA: Besides, Trump wasn't threatening Comey, he was poisoning the well before Comey's testimony. This is Trump's modis operandi.

Would it be okay if it occurred in the Oval Office?

If I was Trump, I'd record EVERYTHING. Believe it or not, the media and some on the left have been a tiny bit less than truthful.

Yes there is, a very veiled, mobster style threat. And, there's an accusation that he's illegally leaking falsehoods to the press.


"James Comey better hope that there are no 'tapes' of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press,"

I hope Comey leaks stuff to Wikileaks.

That'll really trigger some people's cognitive dissonance!

Could you zero in on the specific words that constitute a threat pleae?

Well, I heard for a year how Trump and the GOP have the answers to all our problems and how to obliterate Obama's legacy. That does seem to be what is happening. More wars, rich getting richer, instead of repealing healthcare we get chaos, Christians get special protections, we get to poison our waters some more and our parks, our institutions that work to keep us safe are under attack, by president and friends, we now have chaos. Never once during Obama's administration did I feel fear every time the satellite goes quirky. And now, because of his ego, he has probably made life miserable for his family. I already figured out he doesn't care about the country.

"Better hope" are the operative words in Trump's veiled threat.

If it's true, then so be it.

But as with Snowden, even if you leaked it for the right reasons, there are still laws about leaking classified information and they exist for a reason. So as Beretta says, "don't do the crime if you can't do the time".

Trump's whole handling of Comey has been very mobesque.

Comey hasn't accepted yet isn't that suspicious in itself. Remember the immunity deal for Flynn and what came of it? You people don't realize that this is not about Trump. Comey and Flynn have dirt on the former administration and proof of a possible collusion with the Leprechaun. This information can never be allowed to see the light of day. It would crush the american people. Think about for one second what people would do when Obama is revealed as a fraud for the last 8 years and that he worked with Hillary to undermine the american people and the constitution. Comey knows that they conducted illegal surveillance on all citizens including election candidates for years probably even decades.
