Was it childhood trauma which caused the FBI Director to misperceive his private Valentine’s Day meeting with President Donald Trump? On June 8, 2017, fired FBI Director James Comey testified he had been beaten as a child. (Background: Russiagate: Comey Beaten as a Child, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, June 10, 2017.)
Or was it something akin to sexual harassment by the boss? For some, reported The New York Times on June 8, 2017, “the questions that Mr. Comey, the former F.B.I. director, faced and the situations he described [with President Trump] brought to mind a seemingly unrelated topic: sexual harassment.” 
Yes, we are talking about this summer’s exciting soap opera, Russiagate. Scary Russians seem to be everywhere. How do you even know that your neighbor is not a Russian spy? The cunning Russians have learned to speak English and could easily mingle amongst the population. (Ask your neighbor some tricky sports questions, just to be sure.)
In Comey’s testimony of June 8th, Senator Dianne Feinstein asked the 6 foot 8 inch tall giant, “Why do you believe you were fired?”
“I guess I don’t know for sure,” Comey revealed.
Then Senator Feinstein moved toward the sexual harassment theme: “Now, here’s the question, you’re big. You’re strong. I know the oval office, and I know what happens to people when they walk in. There is a certain amount of intimidation.”
Yes, Comey is a big guy, so how could he have felt any harassment? Answer (according to Feinstein): It was the Oval Office which helped to intimidate him.
Comey responded that he wished he were bigger and stronger, when Feinstein asked him why he did not immediately resist any perceived pressure.
When President Trump allegedly asked Comey about his loyalty, a bigger and stronger FBI Director might have said, “Hold on, Mr. President. You are crossing a fine line here.” Instead, Comey wrote “302s”, later memos which recorded the encounter.
The soap opera excitement may be about to heat up. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a letter that he will appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, June 13th, to address matters former FBI Director James Comey brought up in testimony to the same panel. However it is not known at this point whether it will be a closed or open session.
