Pour yourself a large cup of covfefe: it's Comey Day.
Former FBI Director James Comey's testimony before the Senate Select Intelligence Committee was yuge, in terms of unpacking whether or not President Donald Trump committed obstruction of justice in asking Comey to ease off of the Russia investigations and former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn. Billed as "Washington's Super Bowl" by CNN, James Comey's testimony is also a big day for the Republican spin machine, who are tasked with having to defend Trump's actions.
The stakes couldn't have been higher, and the internet couldn't have been more excited. Here are the best Twitter reactions to what is guaranteed to be the biggest testimony until Donald Trump himself gets subpoenaed!
