James Comey was warned by the Attorney General’s office and the Department of Justice not to go public with the “Anthony Weiner-Hillary Clinton email” investigation letter to the Republican controlled congress.
Comey should be fired for insubordination.
James Comey is a weak and confused leader of the FBI who lacked the balls to do the right thing. He should have fired the pro-Trump FBI officers for insubordination.
Is no one in charge here? Are the inmates controlling the insane asylum?
If Comey told the NY FBI office to stop their leaks about the Anthony Weiner-Hillary Clinton alleged emails and they refused to listen, he should have fired them.
Instead Comey spreads the untruthful innuendos of the The Rudolf Giuliani Pro Trump FBI faction in a letter to Congress – Comey told congress and the world about unsubstantiated and false claims concerning Clinton’s email on Anthony Weiner’s cell phone and computers.
This swayed enough voters to abstain from voting Clinton or to stay home to steal the election for Donald Trump.
I would have fired the lot of Pro Trump FBI agents for insubordination. Leaking information before an investigation is complete is an egregious breach of police practices. This amounts to professional misconduct.
I know, I cover the police beat in Timmins, Ontario. North Country, Canada.
Whenever I press the local police chief about details of an unsolved murder for example, the chief always replies -“Sorry, can’t comment, the case is under investigation.”
The Timmins police chief doesn’t provide innuendo about someone who might be guilty. That would be shoddy and unethical if not illegal police tactics.
Comey on the other hand is all about babbling unsubstantiated details to the world. Details that as it turned out amounted to hill of bullshit.
There was nothing there – there.
Comey should have said nothing and he should have told the NY Pro-Trump FBI agents to follow police protocol…warn them if you didn’t they will be fired!
Comey could have ordered the seizure of the FBI Office and placed it under trusteeship under his direct command sequestering all FBI computers and cell phones.
If agents didn’t obey Comey, he should have fired the lot and exposed Giuliani’s and Trump’s undue influence on the pack of FBI renegades from New York.
Once Comey fired the lot for insubordination, I then would write a letter to Congress and the Attorney General explaining why this dangerous clique had to be fired, because they were going to leak untrue information about Clinton on the final week of the campaign and unjustly interfere with American democracy.
This incursion of the FBI into an election is the hallmark of any tin pot dictatorship in banana republics around the world.
Now if I were Obama or Loretta Lynch, the Attorney General,I would fire James Comey ASAP…for insubordination and incompetence. If Comey can’t control a rump faction of the FBI in New York that is controlled by Rudolf Giuliani what other gross injustices have occurred under his watch that have been simply swept under the rug.
Obama and or the Attorney General should quote the law as it stands and also Police Practice of never commenting on a case before all the facts are in as the bases of his action.
Of course Donald Trump would re-hire Comey on becoming President on January 20th…but Obama would be making a bold statement. The firing of Comey would be fact-based and hard to dispute.
The re-hiring of this blatantly incompetent FBI director by Trump could set the tone for the Trump regime — corrupt to the core.
The Comey Dirty Trick turned enough potential Clinton voters off in Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Florida to swing the election to Trump…less than a million voters had to be so turned off Clinton that they stayed home or went to vote for Trump.
And that is difference. Before Comey Clinton was up by as much as 8 percent in the polls…after Comey Clinton sunk to the bottom even trailing Trump by 2 percent the weekend before the election.
The majority of Clinton voters dismissed the Comey dirty trick…50,000,000 Americans plus voted for her, about 250,000 more than voted for Donald Trump.
Clinton won more votes than Trump And should be the legitimate president of the USA, but the USA doesn’t practice democracy and by a quirk of their goofy system Trump with less votes becomes President.
That is like the second place runner being declared the Gold medal winner in the Olympics. Or the second place horse in the Kentucky Derby being declared the winner.
Comey’s dirty trick turned off a tiny, slim amount of support say 1/50th of Clinton’s support or one million voters were turned off enough to lose Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Florida.And give the Trumpster those badly needed electoral college votes.
Enough to steal the election for that Liar Trump.
Folks, we all know Trump is a Liar. He doesn’t represent working America. Unfortunately Trump pretended to listen to their voices when the Democrats under Hillary Clinton failed to connect with them.
Also don’t discount the ingrained American racism as a factor in Trump’s razor thin climb to the white house. This Make America Great Again slogan by Trump is really Make America White Again.
And it worked barely, but it worked.
Listen to Henry Rollins song Liar because the lyrics and the video that accompany the song tell the story of Donald Trump– the Liar.
And oh yeah ! James Comey — You’re Fired!
