So much nothing that the sitting president is going to have to testify under oath. Totally nothing, amazing nothing, believe me, it is so much nothing. Last time a sitting president testified under oath, the House passed articles of impeachment. That much nothing.

TOTALLY NOT INSANE:

Comey now claims he deleted his original memos, and the professor he gave a copy to is in hiding. Totally normal.

A story about Jack Posobiec that SomeProfile linked to above:

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/10/us/politics/comey-fake-news-twitter-posobiec.html?

WASHINGTON — Jack Posobiec had his Twitter sights set on James B. Comey.
A pro-Trump activist notorious for his amateur sleuthing into red herrings like the “Pizzagate” hoax and a conspiracy theory involving the murder of a Democratic aide, Mr. Posobiec wrote on May 17 that Mr. Comey, the recently ousted F.B.I. director, had “said under oath that Trump did not ask him to halt any investigation.

It mattered little that Mr. Comey had said no such thing. The tweet quickly ricocheted through the ecosystem of fake news and disinformation on the far right, where Trump partisans like Mr. Posobiec have intensified their efforts to sow doubt about the legitimacy of expanding investigations into Trump associates’ ties to Russia.

But as the journey of that one tweet shows, misinformed, distorted and false stories are gaining traction far beyond the fringes of the internet. Just 14 words from Mr. Posobiec’s Twitter account would spread far enough to provide grist for a prime-time Fox News commentary and a Rush Limbaugh monologue that reached millions of listeners, forging an alternative first draft of history in corners of the conservative media where President Trump’s troubles are often explained away as fabrications by his journalist enemies.

I would like to see a direct quote from James Comey that he deleted his memos.

In fact if you do a google search on "Comey deleted his memos" you'll see it's a bunch of conservative websites claiming this and linking each other. There is no link to an authentic source, a signed letter or a video of Comey saying any such thing.

To the fake news purveyor:

https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/06/14/us/politics/mueller-trump-special-counsel-investigation.html

In testimony on Capitol Hill last week, Mr. Comey said Mr. Mueller had a copy of that memo and several others Mr. Comey had written about his interactions with Mr. Trump.
