CHARLES HURT: I don't really know how anybody could come out of this without thinking that it was a good day for the president. There are a lot of things that are still being disputed by the White House but let's assume that everything Director Comey said is exactly what happened.
It's clear that the president didn't obstruct justice. He isn't and wasn't under investigation for ties to Russia and then the new things, obviously, there are more unpleasant things that we already knew about such as the pressure it appears he put on Comey in the White House which obviously is not the way things work in Washington. But for no one is that a surprise.
Donald Trump doesn't do things the way are done in Washington. The only new things that came out was this sort of bombshell about Loretta Lynch that suggests that not only did she perhaps obstruct justice, she also tampered in the election. So, I think overall it has to be considered a victory for Donald Trump.
