An examination of testimony by FBI Director James Comey, which pitted President Donald Trump against the powerful US foreign policy establishment that aims to punish the President for not being 'sufficienty hostile' to the Kremlin.

Abstract: 
--

Excerpt: Let's state the obvious: Comey wanted to maintain the cloud of suspicion that was hanging over Trump because it helped to feed the perception that Trump was a traitor who collaborated with Russia to win the election. By remaining silent, Comey helped to fuel the public hysteria and reinforce the belief that Trump was guilty of criminal wrongdoing. That is why Comey never spoke out before, it's because his silence was already achieving the result he sought which was to inflict as much damage as possible on Trump and his administration.
