If former FBI Director James Comey believed there was obstruction of justice, is he obligated to report it? Watch here or on our Facebook page.
This week on Bold TV, our hosts Carrie Sheffield and Clay Aiken discussed former FBI Director James Comey and the Russian Investigation with our guests Russia Columnist Maria Snegovaya and Clinical Psychologist Chloe Carmichael.
We discussed the question on everyone’s mind: Is what President Donald Trump did illegal or, as Carrie says, ‘just sketchy’? Democrats and Republicans have of course responded to the Russia investigation differently; we love bringing the different sides of the conversation together.
When asked about Comey’s testimony, and if it will have any affect at all, Chloe answered by saying she really admired Comey for going on and trying to offer accurate information as best as he possibly could. She is hopeful this will eventually unify Democrats and Republicans.
Chloe said while he was meticulously honest and transparent, she did notice one place where his emotionality got the better of him, and it was when people suggested disarray going on at the FBI.
We also discussed Maria’s article on how Russians are reacting to this situation and how the Comey investigation has been treated in Russian press. Maria gave her perspective and said in Russia, the head of security is actually head of the state altogether.
“For us, it’s a little unusual, and of course, it’s definitely a manifestation of the strength of the U.S Democracy,” Maria said.
Maria also spoke on her article, “Russian Hacking May Have Helped Trump Win, but Russians Don’t Really Care.” She said it wasn’t until recently that the Russia Investigation was on Russia’s radar, because there are so many other problems within the country.
