“James Comey said his decision to announce that the FBI was going to look back into the Hillary Clinton email investigation just days before the election was influenced by his belief that she would beat Donald Trump and his desire to make sure that the election results were viewed as legitimate.
“I don’t remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been because I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump, and so I’m sure that it was a factor,” Comey told ABC News’ chief anchor George Stephanopoulos in an exclusive interview ahead of the April 17 release of his book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”
“I don’t remember spelling it out, but it had to have been, that she’s going to be elected president and if I hide this from the American people, she’ll be illegitimate the moment she’s elected, the moment this comes out,” he added.”
This reasoning is such fucking revionist bullshit. So, is Comey really saying that if the polls had been closer he would not have done it? And that Trump was under investigation at the exact, same moment, was losing in the polls, and he said NOTHING about that, proves that this is a damned lie. He did it because he thought that Clinton would win means he did it for political reasons. There is nothing ethical about what he did. That’s just positioning.
Look, to my mind all Comey is doing right now is cashing in on his mistakes. He’s the rare fuck-up whom the Left and the Right both hate, and both have good reasons to do so. So thanks a lot, Comey. You, James Comey, you chose the most destructive and illegitimate prznint of our lifetime.
Get off your fucking high horse, and go straight to hell.
