Comey Outs Himself as a Democrat Partisan Hack

The disgraced former FBI director calls out Trump for “refusing to back his own country.”

“This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that ‘Ambition must … counteract ambition.’ All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall. Policy differences don’t matter right now. History has its eyes on us,” declared disgraced former FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday evening. This was his follow-up message to his Monday tweet in which Comey called on “patriots” to stand up against President Donald Trump, who he accused of treason for standing “next to a murderous lying thug and refusing to back his own country.” Trump did blunder in Helsinki, but come on.

Apparently, Comey is in need of some reminders. It was Barack Obama, his former boss, who was infamously caught on a hot mic in March 2012 promising “more flexibility” after his reelection in working deals with Vladimir Putin’s yes-man Dmitri Medvedev. And let’s not forget it was Comey’s favored candidate Hillary Clinton whose illegal home-brew server, which contained classified information, was most certainly hacked by Russian agents, compromising U.S. security. Speaking of Clinton and Russia, what of Hillary’s shady Uranium One deal with Russia in 2010 while she was secretary of state? So shady was the deal that the Justice Department investigated it for four years, and yet inexplicably no fault was found with the Clinton Foundation even though the FBI uncovered evidence of Russian bribery.

The fact is that Comey’s latest tweets serve to further expose just how much of a partisan hack he is. As Mark Alexander noted, “Comey was, and remains, a ‘Trump hater,’ much as his fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and senior investigators Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, all of whom colluded in an effort to ensure Clinton would win in 2016.”

Finally, Comey’s insinuation of Trump being treasonous for “refusing to back his own country” must be called out for the partisan cheap shot that it is. First, the refusal to fully back the U.S. intelligence community, whose leadership has repeatedly demonstrated animus toward Trump both before and after his election, is not the equivalent of refusing to back his own country. Trump has done more to back the country he clearly loves than have those intelligence officials. Second, Comey’s claim to know how “history” will judge Americans in his mind justifies his partisan commitment over and against upholding the Rule of Law. What hubris. Comey has now made more clear than ever that his politics trump all other considerations.
