Republican apologists have been suggesting that Comey had to do something because alt-right factions within the FBI were in revolt. They were going to leak the investigation to the news media…and Cowardmey didn’t want to face Congress if that happened. Of course, to be fair, I never believe anything I hear from republicans, so I don’t know what was actually going on at the FBI before Cowardmey wrote his little note to the republicans. Still, the whole episode smacks of something Putin would order. Makes me wonder whether Putin told Cowardmey to write that letter during their weekly telephone conference. Trump had been begging Putin to save him…looks like Putin found a way to maybe do so.
