Glenn Greenwald on the Comey Testimony and the NSA scandal

Glenn Greenwald has updated this post at Salon several times since this morning.

The essay is not simply an excellent, exhaustive account of the implications of Comey's testimony yesterday before the Senate. Greenwald's essay is perhaps the best expression yet of what may prove to be the defining transitional moment in the ongoing investigations of the Bush Administration.

As Greenwald points out, it's not simply that the President personally sent his Counsel and Chief of Staff on a deceitful mission to get the signature of an incapacitated Attorney General...against the wishes of acting Attorney General Comey and FBI Director Mueller and perhaps in violation of the law...it's why the President took that measure at all.

What was so important about getting that signature? What did the President have to hide?
