Two days after putting on a disgraceful show for oversight lawmakers on Capitol Hill, fired FBI Director James Comey was in front of an audience of a different kind – a liberal group of sycophants who wanted to hear him and MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace bash President Trump to their eternal delight.
We don’t have any figures on how many people showed up to listen to Comey blather on for an hour, but it can’t have been too many. Even in New York, they have to be just a little bit sick of the Trump is Terrible Carousel, no? Besides, Comey is not much more popular with the left than he is with the right; after all, Hillary’s minions are still blaming him for costing her the election. Well, him and Russia. And Bernie. And sexism. And the New York Times. And…
But we digress.
In any case, Comey told Wallace that it was up to American voters to rescue the country from the clutches of the Evil Donald Trump.
“All of us should use every breath we have to make sure the lies stop on January 20, 2021,” said the man who assures us to this day that there was absolutely no bias against Trump inside the FBI. He said that Democrats should try to ignore ideological differences on the left and pick the candidate most likely to win.
“I understand the Democrats have important debates now over who their candidate should be,” he said, “but they have to win. They have to win.”
Later in the interview, Comey completely undressed any pretense that he is still a practicing Republican who hopes for a return to Bush-era neoconservatism. He’s a full-on cheerleader for the Democratic Party, as proven by this remark he made about Republican leaders in Congress and their decision not to publicly share intelligence regarding Russian interference in the waning months of 2016.
“To their everlasting shame, the leaders — (Senate Majority Leader Mitch) McConnell, (House Speaker Paul) Ryan — refused,” Comey said. “I think they’re going to have a hard time explaining that to history.”
We’d like to hear James Comey “explain to history” why he used the FBI as a political cudgel on behalf of Barack Obama. We’d like to understand why Comey thought it was okay to launch a counter-intelligence investigation into a presidential campaign based on no firmer evidence than some lackey’s drunken conversation with a British diplomat. We’d like to understand a lot of things about Comey’s actions during that time; unfortunately, whenever we get to the meat of the matter, he hides behind legal counsel and refuses to answer. Almost like someone with something to hide!
At a time when American faith in our intelligence agencies is at an all-time low, it pains us to see Comey, Brennan, and Clapper out there undermining what respect is left with every word that comes out of their mouths. Their collective decision to become anti-Trump activists after leaving office cannot help but raise the question of whether or not that’s when their anti-Trump activism actually began.
