James Comey is lauded by the mainstream media as a man who stood up to the authoritarian tyranny of Donald Trump. He claims to have had a “higher loyalty” to justice and the rule of law. They trot him out on their “news” programs to bash President Trump any chance they get, and he obliges them by acting the part of the lone warrior standing between tyranny and democracy. So great was his heroism that he even got a movie made in his honor, with Jeff Daniels portraying Comey as he stands against Trump’s sinister demands for “loyalty.”
The only problem is that Comey is a complete fraud.
Instead of being the protector of democracy, he has consistently acted as an agent of tyranny by using his position as head of the FBI to undermine the Republican nominee turned President of the United States. He sought to delegitimize a legitimate election in which the man he personally detested won. He is far from the man who feigns self-righteousness on cable news—he is the problem.
New information has been revealed that further highlights the point. Not only did Comey fail to quash the bogus Trump-Russia investigation, but he knew that it was a fiction from the get-go and pressed forward with the fake Steel Dossier anyway. He used that pile of lies, created by the Hillary Clinton campaign, to obtain a search warrant against Carter Page to spy on the Trump campaign.
On Wednesday, Comey testified to that in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, but he suddenly had a blind spot in his memory and couldn’t recall details of his own corruption. How convenient. Jim Comey should change his name to Sargent Schultz from the classic TV show “Hogan’s Heroes,” because he “knows nothing.”
Fox News reported, “Former FBI Director James Comey on Wednesday said it didn’t ‘ring a bell’ when asked whether he received an investigative referral on Hillary Clinton purportedly approving ‘a plan’ attempting to tie President Donald Trump to Russia and distract from her email scandal before the 2016 election…
According to the declassified information, in September 2016, U.S. intelligence officials forwarded an investigative referral on Clinton purportedly approving ‘a plan concerning U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections’ in order to distract the public from her email scandal. That referral was sent to Comey and Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok.”
Responding to Comey’s claim that he didn’t remember receiving the information, Senator Lindsey Graham said, “That’s a pretty stunning thing that it doesn’t ring a bell. You get this inquiry from the intelligence community to look at the Clinton campaign trying to create a distraction, accusing Trump of being a Russian agent or a Russian stooge.”
The usually mild-mannered Senator Mike Lee of Utah scorched the former FBI Director when he said, “How can you now as a private citizen and former FBI Director show up and then speculate freely regarding any alleged ties between President Putin and President Trump?
You don’t install a wasp’s nest in your child’s bedroom and then express surprise when the child gets bitten by wasps,” Lee said. “You don’t adopt an ex parte process and then express surprise and outrage when it goes completely unsupervised and off the rails.”
Ouch, that must have stung a little (pun intended).
Senator Ted Cruz laid into Comey as well. He told him that “This has done severe damage to the professionals and the honorable men and women at the FBI because law enforcement should not be used a political weapon. That is the legacy you’ve left…you were deliberately corrupt or woefully incompetent, used FBI as a political weapon.”
As more evidence is revealed, it increasingly appears that James Comey was more the former than the latter. It is time for John Durham to wipe that cocky smirk off Comey’s face by releasing his report on Crossfire Hurricane, and finally bring charges against Comey and others for using the levers of power as a political weapon.
The clock is ticking, and if President Trump loses, neither Comey or anyone else in the Obama Administration will face justice for their crimes.
Let’s hope the truth comes to light sooner rather than later.
