The president and the investigators
Regarding Dana Milbank’s May 18 Washington Sketch column, “Rosenstein comes to the rescue of the cowardly Republicans”:
House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) tried to smear former FBI director James B. Comey by saying that if what is alleged in his personal memorandum were true, he should have alerted someone immediately. Can any of us imagine what have happened had he tried to do that? A temporary uproar and his dismissal — followed by business as usual. Better he waited while keeping his head down and continuing to do his job.
