On Comey's testimony

We have on the one side an active FBI investigation into whether the Russians were working with the Trump campaign to influence the election, and on the other hand we have James Comey saying he's unaware of any wiretaps of the Trump campaign.  It strikes me that both of these contentions cannot be true in any meaningful way--one might object that there were not physical devices connected to phone systems in Trump Tower specifically, but if indeed Comey is correct that there is an investigation, the idea that there was no surveillance of the campaign is hard to believe.

As the good professor noted in The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, it seems that schools, including fairly elite law schools, are simply not teaching logic anymore.
