There he goes again. Grandstanding show boat, former FBI Director James Comey will deliver his long-awaited testimony in the Senate Intel Committee is only hours away!
For those of you keeping score, or people who might be feeling a tad whiplashed, and unsure of how they are supposed to view him this week (Yes, I’m looking at you, moronic Stephen Colbert Fans), I am here to help. This sort of thing is why my work is never done! Are they supposed to despise former FBI Director James Comey because he help steal the election from Hillary Clinton, an accusation she repeated last week, or embrace Mr. Comey’s view of himself, that he doesn’t walk on water, but only because he never tried.
Once again, the sufferers of Trump Derangement Syndrome in the corrupt media and the unhinged, ignorant Left, blinded by hate, are salivating at the prospect of James Comey bringing President Trump down, just as they hoped Sally Yates would, but based on the opening statement he released today, that’s not going to happen.
Comey’s statement confirms what I have been telling about you about him for the last three months; specifically that he is the guy in your office who plays politics better than anyone else, playing his opportunistic, backstabbing game, all the while pretending to be above it all. When you break down his statement, what do we learn?
That he was playing the “I’m investigating the President” card as his job justification shield. As long as he was “investigating,” how could the president fire him? Could that explain his “your stuck with me” remark a couple of months ago?
That if the stories about how he always made meticulous notes of every presidential meeting turned out to be untrue, as in he only did it after meeting with President Trump, and did not after his meetings with Obama, then it was just a CYA memo, cooked up to bolster his strategy to keep his job? Ding ding ding
That the president was simply trying to get Comey to confirm what he had told him several times; specifically, that he, President Trump, was not being investigated for any wrongdoing. Comey’s explanation for his refusal to do that is LAME. Here it is:
“I did not tell the President that the FBI and the Department of Justice had been reluctant to make public statements that we did not have an open case on President Trump for a number of reasons, most importantly because it would create a duty to correct, should that change,” (emphasis mine).
Are you kidding me?? This from the guy who had the dramatic–he is quite the drama queen, isn’t he?–press conference last July, laying out the case for indicting Hillary Clinton, only to come out right before the election to explain that he was reviving the case because he couldn’t “conceal” anything?
Comey’s mistake was thinking that President Trump wasn’t on to his silly, Washington, job-justification game. Wrong.
This should be good tomorrow, but I don’t think anyone is fooled by what is going on here.
