Don't you even suspect that if the memo doesn't exist that Comey would have stepped forth and said "Woah guys: That bit of news is fake"
Comey has a credibility problem.
If it comes down to Comey's word vs. Donald's word, Comey ain't the one with the credibility problem....
Caught this on the CBS Evening News tonight. My hat's off to them to be brave enough to have an Editorial.

Commentary: The "what if" president
WASHINGTON -- I interviewed Sen. John McCain the other night during a chaotic week and he said, "Bob we've seen this movie before." So I'm thinking, "what if this movie had a slightly different plot?"
What if President Trump had taken Barack Obama's private advice to get Gen. Flynn to resign in the beginning?
What if he had cut Flynn loose after Flynn told the Trump team he was under federal investigation?
What if he had gone on national television and said, "I've told FBI Director Comey to get to the bottom of this Russia situation, no one wants to clear it up more than me because we have work to do."
What if he had joined Republican and Democratic leaders in praising the selection of Robert Mueller as special counsel instead of calling it a "witchhunt?"
But he didn't. So, I don't know what answers the special counsel will find, but it brings me back to something else that John McCain said the other night: This has reached "Watergate size and scale."
Look guys. I'm sick of trump. May he rot in hell.
His first 100 days are history, so I assert that it is counter productive to add comments to a thread about his first 100 days.
In an uncharacteristically optimistic mood, I invite discussion of his Final 100 days, which has hopefully now begun.
My champagne is in the fridge awaiting his resignation, impeachment, or untimely demise. I may crack the bottle open early if nukes start flying, but sure as hell will have another one ready if I survive the first volley of trump induced missile launches and I hear of one splitting its warheads twixt the Whitehouse and Mar a Lago.
I may offer side bets on whether I started the countdown too soon. In truth, I think that the wheels of justice will plod along at glacial pace, but that they will be as unstoppable as global warming.
Let this thread celebrate every step back towards sanity and democracy even if we are forced to accept that we will pass through a pretty dreadful Pence term on that route.*
*Who apart from Trump would want that w@nk3r Pence as VP or Potus? Surely not even the most conservative Republican. But, What the heck. Nothing trumps trump.
Oh. And as a side topic: Would it be preferable to have an ousted trump claiming some glory if that was the price to pay for having him out of power? Even Adolf still has a fan club.
