We provide live coverage of the Comey hearings. Senator Kamala Harris indicates that evidence may have been destroyed. Senator Cornyn wants to talk Clinton email scandal. Senator Richard Burr does not follow the Republican script on Trump and Russia. Comey says Russia absolutely intended to influence the election. Why James Comey needed to write down his meeting notes after dealing with Trump’s bizarre behavior. Comey’s response to the Steele Dossier. Trump’s requests on Flynn and loyalty. Why didn’t Comey talk to Sessions? Comey confirms that he was obviously fired because of the Russia investigation. The Senate moves toward gutting health care.

On The Fun Half: Boris Johnson gets owned by the coolest fortune teller in Britain. Polls don’t look good in the UK. Thoughts on Antifa. Remember Felix Seder and how he fits into the Trump and Russia story and your calls and IMs.
