When politics becomes theater and the FBI Director joins in, you have to know we have moved too far into reality TV. How suspenseful was FBI Director's mid-morning presser? It was damned suspenseful as if watching Judge Eto asking the OJ Trial jury foreman to hand him a copy of the verdict.
And, while Clinton and her team made a grievous mistake regarding the personal housing of an email server, Comey's delivered his comments with maximum shots across the political bow of the Democrat Party (presumptive) candidate.

Another legal mind has issues with Comey's performance. While perceived as totally credible regarding his profession, It is almost impossible to ignore his theatrics on yesterday.
