from Kimberly Strassel at the WSJ, Comey’s Secret Power:

Mr. Comey’s meddling has never seemed to stem from some hidden partisan impulse, but rather from an overweening self-righteousness. But power can be misused as much in the hands of the sanctimonious as the corrupt. And it’s overdue for congressional investigators to get to the bottom of precisely how much power Mr. Comey was exercising.


We remain confused trying to figure out Comey’s objective. Was he trying to help Hillary or sink her? Did his efforts succeed or backfire? Will his dismissal reflect well or poorly on Trump? Comey should be thoroughly investigated. Strassel suggests we err in assuming a partisan impulse.
