if there's evidence that can back up this memo... logs of the meeting, people who were at the meeting before comey who can verify that trump asked to speak to him alone, comey witnesses who comey told about the meeting after returning from it, etc. etc. then they could present a pretty good obstruction of justice case, which would have to be a game changer for even the republicans.

for the record - the same NYT reporter, Michael S. Schmidt, broke the Comey Memo and the Clinton E-mail story in 2015. So certainly no accusations of partisan reporting.

James Comey is a lawyer (UofChicago educated, one of the best law schools in the world). It's one of the first things you learn - "memo to file" which is to summarize all calls/meetings of importance in writing and keep. Very important means of covering your ass when you have clients that may sue you for malpractice.

Isn't this just a he said, he said?

I'm not a lawyer, nor will I pretend to understand the law

But Comey writing something down isn't evidence of it happening correct? Not without a recording

I did read a few headlines implying even the Republicans were bothered by this "sharing intelligence" mess.

Obviously I wish the GOP would've shown this level of frustration with Trump oh, say, way back when he first decided to run, but hell, if this is what FINALLY lights a fire under them to actually help get rid of him, then so be it.

His entire case for his presidency was that his opponent was sloppy with intelligence and corrupt, and that somebody who would do the things she was accused of doing was unfit for office.

And he's done the same things, only worse, in the course of 4 months.

It obviously isn't evidence in the same way as a recording, but if he wrote memos to file after each call/conversation with Trump, and he can show that they were done at the time (as opposed to after he got fired), and he also shared them with other people or told other people about the contents contemporaneously then that is very, very compelling.

In the same way that if you are being harrassed at work, for example, your first piece of legal advice will be to document everything when it happens, as it happens, and in writing.

It is a he said he said type of situation but if they can get witnesses as I think I just read on CNN that would indicate this happened they could be on to something. I read a headline on CNN that appearantly trump asked everyone to leave the office before trump talked to comey. This could mean anything but given the situation it's pretty damming that trump wanted no one there to eliminate any witnesses of the conversation he was about to have with comey. Edit: I can't seem to find the article where it stated that trump asked people to leave his office but found this blurb on a CNN article regarding the comey memos. "The second big issue with the White House story is, why would Trump ask Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Vice President Mike Pence to leave the room before making the request of Comey unless Trump knew that what he was doing was extremely iffy -- and wanted to avoid witnesses? Or perhaps he knew that Sessions or Pence might stop him before he even made the ask and he didn't want that problem?"

No wonder he threatened Comey that there "better not be any tapes."
