"If I could summarize Comey's testimony in a sentence, it’s 'LOOK INSIDE THE GODDAMNED GRANDFATHER CLOCK.'"

There's already a Twitter account pretending to be the clock.

The clock is the new aspens. (Scooter Libby, "they turn in clusters"...)

To me it feels like Comey's statement mentions the door by the clock multiple times to indicate *which door* to the Oval he or others used, which is a way of saying which other offices, corridors, sites of power, etc. were or were not involved.

Also I really should not put time into filking "My Grandfather's Clock" like a 2017-era Mark Russell -- maybe the Capitol Steps are already on the case.

Among your many talents, I'm confident you & yours will fill the void left by the demise of the Capitol Steps (I have no specific knowledge; time marches on.)

In which testimony is both non-fiction, and a fantastic short story. I was not expecting Comey's literary talents!

It does make you wonder if there might be memo collections published at some point the way there are short story collections published - a well-crafted memo is an asset that keeps giving.

I had not seen that previously, but YES AMAZING.
