Derrick letter: Risch questioning of Comey

After listening to Sen. Jim Risch questioning Former FBI Director James Comey before the Senate Intelligent Committee it is apparent that Risch does not have a good understanding of the word “hope.” When in regards to the investigation of Michael Flynn the president said to the director, “I hope you can let this go.” Obviously the Republican senator from Idaho does not have a good understanding of what the president wanted of James Comey. I would like to say to the senator that I hope his days of serving the people of Idaho are numbered, and I also hope Donald Trump’s days as serving as the president of the United States are numbered. Perhaps this will help to clarify the use and the meaning of the word “hope.”
