Former FBI Director James Comey, recently fired by President Trump, will appear before the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence today.
For his part, Comey released his opening remarks to the committee a day in advance. You can read those comments here.
In honor of what promises to be bipartisan grilling on strictly partisan lines, here are three limericks based on Comey's version of his uncomfortable chats with President Trump:
A Presidential Plea for Loyalty
There once was an FBI chief named Comey
Who refused to be Donald Trump’s homey
“Just play ball,” POTUS said,
As Comey stood and fled
What if he’d just turned and said, “Blow me”?
Valentine's Day in the Oval Office
Trump just had to bring up Nat-Sec chief Flynn
Whose prevarications were a fireable sin
“Don’t you think he’s a great guy,
‘though he told a few white lies?”
Said Comey, “Isn’t this where I came in?”
Hart Senate Office Building, Room 216
Now the Senate wants to grill Mr. Comey
And parse today’s sworn testimony
About Russian intrusion
And White House collusion
To find out who’s full of baloney.
