    Re: Is James Comey a national disgrace?

    Watched Comey last night and listen to much of the talking heads debate his impact. This morning I have come to the conclusion that Comey was a part of the story, an important part of the story, but he has attempted to be THE STORY by taking on this role of a puritanical minister standing against the witches bedeviling the community and is the only one who can save the community. For me, it is a bridge too far.

    There was absolutely nothing convincing or persuasive about his explanation for his October actions. He seems like a man trying to justify a mistake pure and simple. If his true concern was not rendering Hillary Clinton illegitimate after a win because he kept silent, all he achieved was the same for Trump by keeping silent about that investigation going on at the same time. All he did was exchange one illegitimate president for the other - and that is by his own standards.

    I suspect that within ten days or so - maybe sooner, Comey will decline in importance and the only part of his story that remains relevant is his three meetings with Trump and the implications for being part of a larger plot to obstruct justice as well as his proclamation of Trump as morally unfit to hold office.

    The rest will vanish with the wind.

    Guess what? Many, if not most of us, suspect ulterior motives on his part. The guy is highly ambitious. If you think that only Hillary planned every step of her political career, Comey might just be the one who could teach the conniving Madam a thing or 2.

    Ugh people have ambitions!?!?! And personal interests!?! Ugh, 'ulterior motives' you mean like making more money? Having a career after the FBI? What a shocking revelation about the human psyche you've made. Imagine if we were all hockley dockley yokels who settled for quiet lives after working as public servants.

    Now back to Comey...if he (paraphrased) had his investigative decisions influenced by the belief that Ms. Clinton could win the elections, that makes him a bigger louse than I thought he is, and makes him a direct threat to not only our democratic process, but our rule of law.

    Who is James Comey's friend and leaker Daniel Richman? - ABC News

    Bernie Sanders:

    "Comey acted in an outrageous way during the campaign, clearly his behavior during the campaign in terms of what he said in the week or two before the election was unacceptable."

    Nancy Peolosi:

    "Maybe he's not in the right job, I think that we have to just get through this election and just see what the casualties are along the way."

    IMO James Comey reputation and career in public service has been tarnished and can no longer be repaired. This guy really takes the cake. He's a showboat, grandstander and was secretly jealous of all the attention Trump was receiving.

    You can argue Trump is a national disgrace, but Trump didn't spend his entire life in the government/office. Trump was a reality TV star! Comey seems to be auditioning for a reality tv show! Comey has some appetite for the national spotlight.

    This guy is surprisingly emotional and acts more like female millennial than a former FBI director. Here is a story about him almost crying:



    https://nypost.com/2018/04/13/comey-...election-loss/

    And this guy was the Director of the FBI??? Seriously???
    If you can't understand what he wrote right there then I don't think you understand the kind of weight of the issues that were on his shoulders during and leading up to that election. A thoughtful and intelligent person would feel that weight when trying navigate all of this stuff. Having the president tell you that he still has full faith in your integrity after you had to make choices that would make half the country, regardless of your choice, despise you would certainly be a big deal. I think you are failing to actually consider what's being said and instead trying to interpret it in the worst way possible. It's very dishonest of you.
