“It has been many years since a witness appeared on Capitol Hill and put a president in such potential jeopardy as former FBI director James B. Comey did Thursday.

For the first time in the long investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and questions about possible collusion by associates of President Trump’s campaign, the focus has moved inside the White House and, specifically, to questions about the president’s conduct in office.

Allies and adversaries of the president will interpret Comey’s accounting of events in different ways, but there is no question that his appearance dramatically reshaped what already has been a debilitating problem for the administration. It will be left to special counsel Robert Mueller to decide what it all means. In the meantime, Comey has made life more uncomfortable for the president.

Thursday’s open session provided no new information about what the Russians did and certainly not about what Trump associates may have done. Comey saved whatever he might want to say about that for a closed session Thursday afternoon. Instead, the morning was a riveting portrayal of his interactions with the president in what amounted to a possible, though not proven, case of obstruction of justice.”
