It included members of the local Democratic Party and some curious citizens who saw the event on Facebook and decided to attend.READ MORE: Affidavit Says Argument Over Infidelity Between Suspect, Wife Led To Fatal Police Officer Shooting
Janet Kriv drove in from Garland.
“I live a little far away so it’s a bit of a trip but I thought it would be fun to do this with Democratic friends,” said Kriv.
The mood was fun and festive.
Comey Bingo included phrases like “White House leaks” and “obstruction of justice.” As the mimosas took effect, their reaction to the testimony was a little more pronounced.

“Lordy, I hope there are tapes,” said the fired FBI director, referring to a private meeting he had with President Trump.
“That was great,” said Kriv. “Someone said we should put that on a t-shirt.”
All joking aside, the partisan crowd saw Comey as a truth teller, even when Comey backed up a claim President Trump has been making all along.
Trump has repeatedly said he is not personally the target of an investigation. That’s something Steven Richmond believed the President was lying about before today.
“They’re going to give a big thank you to Comey because he’s the one who told the truth,” said Richmond.
“No interest…waste of time,” said one man in Uptown who didn’t want to share his name. “I think that Republicans will look it one way. The Democrats will draw their own conclusion, and everyone will wait for the Mueller investigation to come out with heir own findings.”MORE NEWS: Experts Forecast National Gasoline Prices Will Tumble Below $3 A Gallon Soon
