The New York Times
Women Say to Comey: Welcome to Our World
By SUSAN CHIRA

A man is being publicly grilled about why he was alone in a room with
someone he felt was threatening him. Why didn’t he simply resign if he
felt uncomfortable with what his boss was asking him to do? Why did he
keep taking calls from that boss, even if he thought they were
inappropriate? Why didn’t he just come out and say he would not do what
the boss was asking for?

Sound familiar? As dozens of people noted immediately on Twitter, if you
switch genders, that is the experience of many women in sexual harassment
cases. James Comey, the former director of the F.B.I., explained to
senators during today’s hearing that he felt acutely uneasy and hesitant
to directly confront his boss, the president of the United States. That’s
right, even a savvy Washington insider, the same height as LeBron James
and no stranger to the cut and thrust of power, seemed slightly ashamed
that he had not been able to do so.

“Maybe if I were stronger, I would have,” he said, trying to answer a
question about why he didn’t speak his mind. “I was so stunned by the
conversation that I just took it in.”

These are the emotions that many women have struggled to explain in the
face of sexual harassment, and the ones that have often given defense
attorneys grist for what appear to be inconsistencies.

Imbalance of power often lies at the heart of sexual harassment or assault
cases, from those of Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly at Fox News to the
trial of Bill Cosby, underway the same day as the hearing of the Senate
Intelligence Committee. On Wednesday, Andrea Constand, Mr. Cosby’s
accuser, concluded two days on the witness stand, with defense attorneys
suggesting that her continued contacts with Mr. Cosby undermined her
credibility. Unsurprisingly enough, today’s hearing shows that power can
discomfit and silence men as well as women.

The parallels provoked a lively online conversation:

Victims of sexual assault & harassment know EXACTLY what #Comey means when
he says he was too shocked to tell Trump he was wrong. #ComeyDay

— Danielle Campoamor (@DCampoamor) June 8, 2017 Struck by the parallels
with #sexualharassment: pressure, distress, alarm, etc. #Comey
#ComeyTestimony https://t.co/APCBNVwIRO

— Lora R Fisher (@LoraFisherPOV) June 7, 2017 I thought it was just me.
#Comey is nearly 7 feet tall, father of 6 children- but his testimony is
almost to the T like sexual harassment

— Edie Spencer (@EdieS) June 8, 2017 Critics of President Trump were not
the only ones drawing parallels. Mr. Trump’s son, Donald Jr., echoed the
question posed in the Senate that Mr. Comey had tried to answer, and
defenders of Mr. Trump suggested he should no more be believed than women
who level charges of sexual harassment:

Sen Blunt: If you told Sessions you didn't want to be alone with Trump
again, why did you continue to take his calls?

— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) June 8, 2017 #comey claiming #Trump
obstructed justice over #flynn AFTER he got fired, is like a chick
claiming Sexual Harassment AFTER she got fired.

— Tony Klinger (@tonyklinger) May 18, 2017 Sexual harassment and assault
often provoke debates about credibility, fairness and bias. But at least
for today, the tables were turned, and men could glimpse what women have
often endured.

Sean Spicer Says Trump Never Said He Would Testify Under Oath. He Said It 4 Days Ago.
During Monday’s press briefing, Sean Spicer claimed that Donald Trump never said that he would “100 percent” testify against what James Comey had to say during his Senate testimony. The only problem for Spicer is that Trump had publicly made those claims during a press conference just 3 days earlier. There are videos. Transcripts. Eyewitnesses. Spicer is doomed.

Trump Indicates Tweet on Tapes Was Meant to Affect Comey Testimony
By MAGGIE HABERMAN

WASHINGTON — President Trump appeared to acknowledge on Friday that his earlier tweet hinting of taped conversations with James B. Comey was intended to influence the fired F.B.I. director’s testimony before Congress. In an interview, the president emphasized that he committed “no obstruction” of the inquiries into whether his campaign colluded with Russia.

Hours later, Mr. Trump accused the Obama administration of failing to prevent or punish Moscow for meddling in last fall’s presidential election before the vote. It was not immediately clear if Mr. Trump was admitting for the first time that he now believes Russia interfered in the election, just a day after he ridiculed that intelligence assessment as a Democratic “HOAX.”

During the Friday morning interview with “Fox & Friends,” Mr. Trump sought to explain that his tweets lambasting Mr. Comey were referring to the possibility that anyone could have taped those discussions. On Thursday, he admitted that he, himself, had not.

“I’ve been reading about it for the last couple of months, about the seriousness of the horribleness of the situation with surveillance all over the place,” the president said in the interview. “So you never know what’s out there. But I didn’t tape, and I don’t have any tape and I didn’t tape.”

When the Fox interviewer suggested that the possible existence of recordings might have made sure Mr. Comey “stayed honest in those hearings,” Mr. Trump paused before responding, “Well, it wasn’t very stupid, I can tell you that.” He also said that once Mr. Comey faced the possibility that tapes of their conversations existed, “I think his story may have changed.”
