John Oliver: Comey Cover Up Is ‘Pack Of Lies’ [VIDEO]

John Oliver started last night show with โ€œSurprise, everyone!โ€ adding, โ€œDo you remember normal weeks? Because I donโ€™t!โ€

Everything about Comeyโ€™s firing was unusual, Oliver noted, from Comey having found out about it on TV, to the โ€œgenuinely weirdโ€ termination letter in which Trump wrote: โ€œwhile I greatly appreciate your informing me on three separate occasions I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the department of justice that you are not able to effectively lead the bureau.โ€

โ€œIt is inherently suspicious to try to put words in Comeyโ€™s mouth as you kick him out the door,โ€ Oliver insisted.

โ€œTrump is so desperate to appear dominant, he will rush to take the credit for anything, no matter how bad it is,โ€ Oliver snarked. โ€œIf you wanted him to confess to murder all a lawyer would have to say is, โ€˜your honor, the killer could not possibly have been Donald Trump, it must have been someone much stronger, and smarter, which a much hotter daughterโ€™.โ€

Trump also indicated one reason why he sacked Comey, telling Holt, โ€œWhen I decided to do it, I said to myself, โ€˜This Russia thing, with Trump and Russia, is a made up story. Itโ€™s an excuse, by the Democrats, for having lost an election.โ€

โ€œWhat are you doing?!โ€ Oliver fulminated. โ€œโ€˜I was thinking of the Russia investigation when I fired Comeyโ€™ is the one thing that you are not supposed to say out loud!โ€
