10 Things We Learned From The James Comey Hearing:

Former FBI Director James Comey came to the Senate intelligence committee ready to unload, one month after President Donald Trump fired him, and he delivered.

Comey talked for close to three hours, answering a range of questions about the FBI’s Russia investigation, and his private interactions with Trump and his thinking about how he handled the Hillary Clinton email probe. And, like his previous hearings, he made it hard for Democrats and Republicans to extract clear victories beyond what he wanted to tell.

Trump, Critics Gird For Long War After Comey’s Moment:

The initial shock and awe phase of the great, unresolved Russia election mystery ended with James Comey’s spellbinding testimony.

Now a war of political attrition will rage that will further pollute the Washington swamp and confound the nation before special counsel Robert Mueller concludes his probe — however many months or years that takes.
It was clear Thursday that the former FBI chief’s appearance before the Senate intelligence committee left enough unanswered questions and new leads to embolden President Donald Trump’s critics and defenders alike.
Democrats have plenty to exploit, as they try to convince the public that Trump abused his power and obstructed justice by asking Comey to halt the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Former NFL WR James Hardy III Found Dead At Age 3:

Former NFL wide receiver James Hardy III has died at the age of 31.

Per Kayla Crandall of Fort Wayne’s NBC, the Allen County Coroner’s Office identified Hardy after his body was discovered in a river on Wednesday.

Hardy was a standout wide receiver at the University of Indiana where he played from 2005-07. He led the Hoosiers with 79 receptions, 1,125 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns as a junior in 2007.

Why Ava DuVernay Cried During ‘Wonder Woman’:

“Wonder Woman” may have torn through box office records its opening weekend, but it’s the wonder woman behind the camera who moved Ava DuVernay.

DuVernay said she cried when director Patty Jenkins’ name appeared in the final credits after seeing Jenkins’ emphasis on inclusivity in the superhero film.
“[Wonder Woman] was a beautiful example of what Hollywood can be,” she told CNN at a recent press event. “And that’s what happens when you let women behind the camera.”

Brad Pitt can now add weatherman to his resume.

The actor earlier this week made a surprise appearance on Comedy Central’s “The Jim Jefferies Show” and poked fun of President Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement last week.
“The world is still grappling with Trump withdrawing from the Paris accord we wanted to address it one more time before we say goodnight,” Jefferies said on Tuesday’s show. “To help us understand climate change and what it means to the world, here’s our own Jim Jefferies Show weatherman.”
