While James Comey was testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee yesterday, President Trump was rallying supporters at the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference in Washington, DC.
And in typical fashion, he made bold claims that fired up his conservative base.
One, in particular, stood out as a prescient analysis of what was happening on Capitol Hill.
Four words perfectly captured the events of the day – “The truth will prevail.”
Via the Washington Post:
Speaking at the Omni Shoreham in Washington, just as Comey was wrapping up his public hearing, Trump recited Isaiah 1:17, which states: “Learn to do right, seek justice, defend the oppressed. Take up the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.”
Then the president added in his own words: “The entrenched interests and failed bitter voices in Washington will do everything in their power to try and stop us from this righteous cause, to try to stop all of you. They will lie, they will obstruct, they will spread their hatred and their prejudice, but we will not back down from doing what is right.”
“Because as the Bible tells us, we know the truth will prevail,” he added. “Nothing worth doing ever came easy. . . . We know how to fight better than anybody, and we never give up. We are winners, and we are going to fight.”
The truth prevailed in a major way. While Comey presumed, assumed, and interpreted the meaning of Trump’s statements for the committee in an attempt to clear his own name after being fired, the fact remains what the President had said all along was proven accurate.
President Trump just had to respond… https://t.co/nnAGyvLdjT

The President repeatedly asserted that he was not under FBI investigation, even writing in Comey’s termination letter that, “you inform(ed) me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation.”
Comey’s testimony demonstrated that was exactly right.
Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication…and WOW, Comey is a leaker!

President Trump’s personal attorney Marc Kasowitz said, “The President feels completely vindicated and is eager to continue moving forward with his agenda with this public cloud removed.”
In other words, the truth prevailed. Democrats lost. It’s time to move on for the good of our nation.
