He lied to the President, lied about lying to the President, leaked government information to cover up his lying, and lied to the public about his lying.
The Department of Justice Inspector General Report revealed what many of us suspected all along: James Comey was the Bad Guy in the ‘Russia Collusion’ story.
He lied to the President, lied about lying to the President, leaked government information to cover up his lying, and lied to the public about his lying. Comey tried to set up the President soon after he took office and failed, and covered up the attempt.
Comey is revealed to be a completely manipulative bureaucratic infighter who maneuvered the government into a two-year Executive Branch paralysis in the form of the Mueller investigation, while falsely proclaiming himself the only holy player in the saga. His defense when unmasked in the IG Report is to crow that he wasn’t indicted.
Would any other FBI employee who did what James Comey did have escaped prosecution? Would James Comey have let James Comey off the hook? That DOJ declined prosecution is not a testament to Comey’s innocence, but to the reality that the James Comeys and Hillary Clintons are treated differently by the prosecutorial bureaucracy regardless of administration.
You want the Big Takeaway? Here you go:
That a James Comey rose to become Director of the FBI makes the case for limited government and the protection of individual rights. The Tea Party was right, and still is.
