James Comey Fights Back Against Republicans and President Trump
James Comey was once again back before the House to testify as Republicans are trying to distract from the Special Counsel Robert Mueller probe. After his testimony, Comey spoke to reporters.
“Somebody has to stand up and speak for the FBI,” Comey told reporters after his testimony. “People who know better, including Republican members of this body, have to have the courage to stand up and speak the truth, not be cowed by mean tweets or fear of their base. There is a truth and they’re not telling it. Their silence is shameful.”
“The FBI’s reputation has taken a big hit because the president of the United States has lied about it constantly.”
Comey is right. All of a sudden, the FBI are the bad guys. But, here comes the verbal enforcer, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to the rescue.
“Republicans should stand up to Comey and his tremendous corruption – from the fake Hillary Clinton investigation, to lying and leaking, to FISA abuse, and a list too long to name. The President did the country a service by firing him and exposing him for the shameless fraud he is.”
Of course, we can’t count out the President. In a tweet in order to discredit the Mueller investigation:
“Remember, Michael Cohen only became a “Rat” after the FBI did something which was absolutely unthinkable & unheard of until the Witch Hunt was illegally started. They BROKE INTO AN ATTORNEY’S OFFICE! Why didn’t they break into the DNC to get the Server, or Crooked’s office?”
Common sense: no one “broke” into Cohen’s office. It’s called a search warrant approved by a federal judge. Comey responded as much to the President’s tweet:
“This is from the President of our country, lying about the lawful execution of a search warrant issued by a federal judge. Shame on Republicans who don’t speak up at this moment — for the FBI, the rule of law, and the truth.”
By the way, in reference to President Trump’s tweets, after you get busted, that’s when you become a “rat.” No one does it before. I’m also waiting on the President to call Michael Flynn a rat.
As Comey points out, where are Republicans in all this? I understand tribalism. No one expects Republicans to say hey wait, let’s all become Democrats or vice-versa. But, bold face lies to the American public to spread misinformation?
How many people have you spoken to that believe everything said by the President? Something as simple as the border wall is being built is just one example. It has NOT been built as of today. Not one inch. It’s a fact, that’s not my “libtard” beliefs.
We cannot have a successful government that lies to the public, and when caught by the press, just puts another lie on top of the original lie. That’s what they do in dictatorships and third world countries. Anyone can support anybody they want for public office, but you cannot support lies, falsehoods, or dis/mis- information.
