There are only two ways to explain this:
Either he was already incredibly biased against Trump at the start of of his “investigation” and therefore should have recused himself, or started unbiased but became outraged, radicalized, and insane because Trump decided he wasn’t doing a good job and fired him.
Neither is very reassuring about this “investigation,” the FBI, or the permanent Derp State of bureaucratic Washington.
Former FBI Director James Comey asked American voters Sunday night to end Donald Trump’s presidency with a “landslide” victory for his opponent in 2020.”All of us should use every breath we have to make sure the lies stop on January 20, 2021,” Comey told an audience at the 92nd Street Y on New York City’s Upper East Side. He all but begged Democrats to set aside their ideological differences and nominate the person best suited to defeating Trump in an election.
“I understand the Democrats have important debates now over who their candidate should be,” Comey told MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace, “but they have to win. They have to win.”
“Leakin’ James Comey must have set a record for who lied the most to Congress in one day. His Friday testimony was so untruthful!,” Trump wrote, adding in a second post: “On 245 occasions, former FBI Director James Comey told House investigators he didn’t know, didn’t recall, or couldn’t remember things when asked.”
Comey laughed at the idea Trump had even looked over the actual testimony, joking to Wallace before she could read the tweets, “He’s finished reading the 253 pages?”
After hearing the words out loud, he turned serious.
“My reaction to it is actually disturbing to me, which is kind of, ‘Eh, there he goes again.’ I thought I was ‘Lyin’ James Comey’ now I’m ‘Leakin’ James Comey’. But I kind of shrug and sometimes smile and laugh about it and then I have a secondary reaction, which is to be horrified at my own numb reaction,” Comey said. “We have to remind ourselves the President of the United States of America is publicly announcing that people are committing crimes, that they should be in jail.”
Comey used the power of the state to put Trump in jail just because he wanted Hillary Clinton to be president, but it’s dangerous for Trump to tweet at him.
And note that CNN claims that Trump is claiming without evidence — the media’s new favorite phrase — that Comey is not telling the truth when he claims so much failure of memory. But as the next article points out, there is evidence of this — at least of Comey claiming a suspicious amount of early-onset dementia.
On Friday, Comey admitted to congresssional questioners that he never even bothered to verify the claims made in the “dossier” he used to secure a FISA against Trump and people in his orbit, and made the further astonishing claim that he doesn’t think it’s his job to do so.
That might be a typo, but “Derp State” is a pretty apt description of these turds that relied so heavily on Hillary getting elected to cover their corruption.
What if his opponent was Hillary, who you KNOW is a criminal? You, a former law enforcement officer, would want HER over someone you don’t like but you KNOW hasn’t violated any laws because you were complicit in inventing the justification for investigating him? That’s pretty sick.
During Kavanaugh’s hearings we saw how little real evidence it takes to condemn someone that has committed the crime of being a Republican. Yet, they have the capability to ignore the most glaring evidence of crimes or suspicion if committed by a Democrat.
This guy has been comfortably numb for a long time.
Perhaps he will start cutting himself so he can feel something.
Comey is a member of the Uniparty: globalists from both the Dem, the GOPe and even the radical Left.
The “Deep State” is simply those uniparty globalists in gov’t acting in their best interests.
I saw a graphic of red (conservative) vs blue (liberal) social media pages from Facebook. The whole circles were sized by how many followers each group had.
Then there were the exploded circles.
Those represented those organizations and persons that Facebook had banned into silence.
ALL of the exploded circles were on the right side of the graphic.
All of them were bright red to dark pink.
Examples of much worse things posted to Twitter/Facebook by the blue circled pages resulted in No Punishment.
James Comey was hired to be the “top cop” in the nations law enforcement agency. His only loyalty should have been to protect, and defend, the Constitution and to investigate any federal crimes, perceived or real. His job was not to be a political hack who was He!! bent on seeing HRC elected president. But he was. Someone needs to ask Mr. Comey when he developed this heightened sense of political partisanship. I suggest it was around the time of the November 2016 elections and he started having vision problems (not being able to see wrong doings) about the time of the infamous tarmac meeting.
Comey clearly has early onset Altzheimer’s which apparently developed some where around the time the FBI was investigating the HRC private server/email scandal which then went into remission while he writing his book only to resurface when he was required to testify before Congress. Some would call this “selective memory”, a malady that many wives see in their husbands.
A really good break down of Comey’s testimony can be found here:
If Americans cannot trust the leadership of the FBI to protect our interests, and it remains a totally partisan organization, we are no longer a nation of laws.
Comey took an oath: “I, James Brien Comey, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
James Comey believes Donald Trump to be a domestic enemy who has colluded with a foreign enemy. He may well be right. He was in a position to know more than the public presently knows. Investigations are currently underway that are intended to find out.
Oddly enough, the president’s official oath of office makes no mention of foreign or domestic enemies, nor of God. Figure that one out.
Smart, informed Americans have it figured out already.
That eliminates you.

A simple private transaction, which must be entirely legal because his recently-convicted lawyer did it… Put that in your pipe and smock it, Jimbo!
Based on what? All they ever had was the Hillary-funded Steele dossier which he admits was not verified at the time, nor even now. However he ADMITTED that Hillary was grossly negligent (“extremely careless”) with the State Department’s emails, which included classified information up to TOP SECRET. Why would he be more concerned about suspicions he couldn’t ever verify than crimes he KNEW had been committed? Well, here’s one explanation; he’s a PARTISAN HACK.
Just saying in the urban dictionary: Smocking is body painting for sexual gratification. While the majority of body painting is done for artistic reasons,
, smockers aren’t generally considered artists. Covfefe everyone.
Or its just a misspelled word potato potatoe?
The former director of the FBI admitted under oath he doesnt know the procedures for opening a counter intelligence investigation, the director the boss, the head honcho.
The President’s worst enemies are all republicans, promoted by an immoral GWB: Brennan, Clapper, Comey – but he told us he left the party last year – and Mueller.
All progressive GOPe men!
5th columnists in the GOP!
@kitt: Democrats that do this on a regular basis use the Wagner Electric Smocking Gun with Back Pack Paint Tank. $129.99 at Lowes.
One wonders why Comey demanded a public hearing or the transcripts released within 48 hrs just to show him pretending not to remember 245 times? Was he just trying to beat Hillary’s record?
@Deplorable Me: You crack me up
Which I will take to mean you probably never noticed the difference between a career government employee’s oath, which is the one James Comey took, and that required of the nation’s highest elected official.
Maybe you should give some thought to the title of Comey’s recent book. But that would require thinking.
@Greg: Why didnt Comey use standard FBI procedures? Why did he testify under oath he didnt know the FBI procedures for opening a counter intelligence investigation. He signed his name on FISA warrant saying to a secret court the information and evidence used was verified and true, here read the procedures that he testified he did not do. https://fas.org/irp/agency/doj/fisa/woods.pdf. And he cant figure out why he should lose his job. He perjured himself to the FISA court. As did everyone who put their names on the warrant request, every single one of them. Rosenstein, McCabe,and Comey 3 times. The deserve jail time. James Comey book A Higher Loyalty to the One World Order not to the Constitution or the United States. He is nothing less than a sniveling, treasonous, lying, traitor. Defending him or his accomplices makes you the same.
You find Trump working with the Russians wheres the evidence.
@Greg: Comey violated that oath. He let a criminal go free because he thought she was going to be the next President, even though being a criminal would DISQUALIFY her from being President. He is anti-American trash, like Mueller.
Seditionist garbage think nothing of swearing any oath, they use that as cover for their lies and corruption. Their loyalty is to the UN, not the US. As soon as we get an Attorney General that is not deep state but owes his/her loyalty to the United States of America and the Constitution, these people are toast.
Well, Greggie Gullible, why do you think that is? I know why. But, as your desire to stay an uninformed dumass is apparent in every one of your posts, I will let you figure it out.
Why should I read a book that is nothing but a fictional account of a man who is trying to destroy the very nation he swore to protect and defend. Hell, Congress would have saved time by just reading Comey’s book as he was apparently suffering from memory loss during his testimony. I guess he figured he would make money off the book but not earn a dime testifying. He’s scum. Like you.
Clinton is only a criminal in your imagination, despite Trump’s slanderous pronouncements and the “lock her up” chants on the campaign trail. He’s far closer to indictment and conviction himself.
Comey is only one of many targets of Donald’s wrath, which doesn’t seem to worry him very much. I suppose that’s because he isn’t the one under investigation, and would have little to hide if he were.
His great regret is probably not having revealed what was suspected about Donald Trump before the election. Somebody should have spoken up, but they were all playing by rules of a sort that Trump himself never gave a damn about. Trump’s advantage was that he recognized no rules or standards of any sort.
Well… no. That’s wrong. First, though minor in relation to her other crimes, she committed perjury, on video, under oath, before Congress. We all saw it and Comey confirmed it when he confirmed she indeed had classified information, including Top Secret, on her private, secret, unsecured server, which itself was a violation. Then there was the mishandling of classified information itself. She lied to the FBI as well. She also obstructed justice by destroying her 33,000 “yoga” emails and the phones and computers she and her team possessed. Then there are the pay for play bribes and the cash for uranium. You can deny that all you want, but when Bubba visits Putin, takes $500,000 for a “speech” and then Hillary supports the sale of US uranium to a company all on that committed KNEW was controlled by Russians and, thus, Putin, happened and is a crime. That’s what we know. More can be found through investigating the Clinton Foundation ATM.
You can deny all this till the cows come home, but it all happened, it’s all true and it’s all crimes. Yet you search in vain for a crime Trump has committed so you can punish him for the sin of defeating Hillary. THAT is what it all about. Vengeance and protection of the deep state control of this nation.
Wrong. The suspicions were revealed; peddled about extensively. What WASN’T revealed was any actual evidence of proof. This remains the situation to this very day. Comey is a turd stepped on and mashed into the carpet. Even worse.
@Deplorable Me: Lay it out any way you want link to filmed testimony, link to government documentation, they cling desperately to the conspiracy theory spun by legacy media.Trump using twitter drives them mad just bonkers cause the public has more trust in a tweet than their 3000 word reliable but never named sources in articles bashing every move he makes. Inane rants about impeachment and prosecution on the most baseless premises.
@Deplorable Me, #20:
No they weren’t. The dates on which various developments took place are totally incompatible with such an assertion. The Trump campaign’s Russia bullshit got very little public attention until after the election was already over. The media spotlight was skillfully kept on Clinton’s email server, constant Congressional investigations thereof, the DNC hacks, Wikileaks, and related bullshit rumors that FOX News poured out and expounded on nonstop.
Look at the timeline. Do you see the date a FISA warrant was issued? October 21, 2016. The public knew nothing about it.
Do you see the date the Steele Dossier went public? January 10, 2017. Responsible mainstream journalists knew about it months before, but held back stories because the contents couldn’t verified. Their professional ethics didn’t allow them to pass on false news that might affect an election. (Contrast that with Donald Trump, who constantly blasts any story critical of him as false news, while shamelessly lying about anyone and everyone he considers an enemy.)
Do you see the date when Comey finally publicly confirmed that the FBI counterintelligence probe was looking into the possibility of coordinated efforts between the Trump campaign and the Russian government? March 20, 2017. He knew about before the election, but said nothing.
When he advised Congress on October 28, 2016 via a confidential letter that the FBI was examining some additional Clinton emails that had just come to light, the sons-of-bitches leaked the information and turned it into a “Clinton is under investigation by the FBI”story within minutes of receipt, and kept it going right up until the election.
Yeah, I’m sure Comey has regrets. His scruples inadvertently helped put one of the most dishonest, corrupt, and unqualified men ever to be elected president in the Oval Office.
@Greg: They used news stories to peddle the unverified dossier to the court. Its in the redacted warrant request, any other little fantasies you would like to have debunked? Circular evidence was used leak, they print, then use as evidence to obtain a warrant.They really didnt need a warrant until the NSA head shut down the Fusion GPS illegal use of the NSA database.
Suspicions about Trump and Russia have been generated and exploited at the very least since 2015 when Trump had announced he was running and was talking about his pageants in Russia and how he had met Putin and talked to him. The media turned that into him “praising” Putin when in fact all he was promoting was that he has had contact with leaders and can talk to them. Even though it was Obama who pledged to “be more flexible” for Putin, the left (the same that worships Obama and all his failures) created the false narrative that Trump was going to be a puppet of Putin.
Hillary’s server SHOULD be the top topic; it was a massive security breach, a threat to national security, an obstruction of justice and a clear demonstration of Hillary’s arrogance, stupidity and incompetence. But the media and DNC characterized it as an unfair attack on Hillary.
Are you trying to be funny?
MSNBC defends ANTIFA violence, lies about police
Left wing media falsely claims Sessions chanted “lock her up” and interprets Russian to suit their leftist dialogue, lies about Putin wanting Trump to win
Liberal media has to issue corrections of the lies they were spreading about Trump’s immigration policies
CNN lies about school shooting in Santa Fe
Media lies about Trump backing DOJ withholding evidence from Nunes
No, really… NYT says Obama only lied 18 times
CNN whips up three big lies in 7 days for the Democrats
NBC lies about Paddock warning the security guard
I have much, much more but why bother? Anyone that claims “journalists” have “ethics” that prevents them from trafficking false stories is immune to truth and facts. Good luck recovering from THAT line!!
Comey showed beyond any shadow of a doubt he has no scruples or he simply feared Hillary so much that he abandoned them all.
Journalists have ethics…. still laughing at THAT one.
“Journalists have ethics…. still laughing at THAT one.”
When did they have ethics?
I have been reading and understanding “news” fo 70 years. It was clear to me that “reporters” were bigoted liars in ’48! The Press has not been honest at least since ’48. My guess, only a guess, is that the press has never been honest.
140 years ago Sam Clemens said.
” … If you read paper you are MIS informed!….”
Hsi pen name was Mark Twain and he fettle “news” was not news 150 years ago.
@Rodney Stanton: General Sherman hated reporters as they searched among his troops for the rumors which best served the paper’s needs and never hesitated to reveal military secrets. He said, “If I killed them all there’d be dispatches from Hell by morning.” He was probably accurate.
