So what? You saw what happened. The memo was released. The memo didn't lie. Trump fired Comey. Trump made up another excuse for the firing but he could easily have made his decision based upon the memo. And not because he was suddenly defending HRC but because Comey really was "grandstanding," as implied in the memo. This incident will not be grounds for interference of justice.
Well, I've never said it would!
Still, it's not like you to be so lacking in skepticism. There's no doubt that Comey's behavior was subject to second-guessing, but I would be surprised if many (or any) of the disapproving authorities cited by the memo would support firing him over it! Especially under these circumstances.
