The punditocracy breathlessly focuses on the appearance of fired FBI Director James Comey before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, declaring that not since Watergate has there been such must-watch testimony.

Most elite media personalities, many of whom have been personally maligned by Trump at some point since he launched his campaign for president on June 16, 2015, will be satisfied if their work contributes to Trumpâ€™s departure from office, whether voluntarily or by removal. Comey has become a bit of a white knight, riding in to save the republic with his copious memoranda and polished rhetorical skills.
