I commend this well written and concise article by the Soufan Center as it speaks to several important points, at least one of which has not come up in any of the commentaries I’ve read on Director Comey’s testimony yesterday. As many of you are like me, former or current career government employees who have served for years in and seen how our government bureaucracy actually works, I wonder if you don’t find some of the points made in the Soufan article below to ring true?  Particularly the authors reference to the damage done by the Media, self serving politicians and pundits over the last few divisive years: “The depth of the damage being done to the foundational assumptions of American democracy—which include, among other truths, that there is such thing as honorable government service that defies partisanship—was a constant thread during Comey’s testimony.”

I am writing more on this subject as this email makes it was to you but it will take some time to sort out and make sense of my thoughts and wanted to get the article below to you on a timely basis.
