II. So that's what I did Wednesday and Thursday. On Monday and Tuesday, I watched (three times) my recording of the George Stephanopolis interview with James Comey from Sunday night, the 15th. Several things struck me about the interview, but the most ironic were the instances where Mr. Comey (with brow knitted in concern) was relating how he was getting ready to tell the President about allegations that he (Trump) was involved with prostitutes in Moscow and that the Russians had taped the encounter and, therefore, may "Have leverage over him (Trump)". Later in the interview, Stephanopolis (with his brow also knitted with a concern I don't believe he feels) asked, "Do you think the Russians have something on Donald Trump?" The equally sober response from Comey is, "I think it's possible---I don't know."
The problem here is that neither of these two guys gets it. The terminology of "having leverage" over the President or of "Having something..." on him implies information that the Russians may have which they could threaten to make public which would be embarrassing to Mr. Trump and, thus, compromise him.
What Comey and George S. don't understand is that Trump is incapable of embarrassment. If the myriad public gaffs which he has already committed--from the crotch grabbing comments on Billy Bush's bus--to the snarky remarks about Carly Fiorina's face--to not knowing China is NOT party to the TPP--to not knowing what comprises the Nuclear Triad--did not embarrass him, nothing the Russians can say will have any effect.
And even if Moscow were to release something that they think is embarrassing, the White House would just call it "Fake News" written in the Cyrillic alphabet.
