The termination of FBI Director James Comey has been commandeered by the political left as the cause du jour this week, in a lame attempt to attack the President.
Comey’s firing has had a perplexing reaction, politically, given his raging incompetency in recent months. During the election of 2016, Comey’s inability, or possible unwillingness, to press charges against Hillary Clinton for her role in a massive national security breach involving her own private email server caused a massive backlash among the politically savvy. It was obvious, even then, that Clinton was a career criminal who had jeopardized the safety of the American people willingly and without remorse, yet Comey backed away from the situation for some time.
Then, merely days before the election was set to take place, Comey announced that the FBI was not finished probing Clinton’s treachery. This is when the democrats lost their collective minds, forcefully calling for Comey’s head on a pike. They claimed that the FBI Director’s timing was purely motivated by politics, and his allegiance to the republicans…who just weeks ago were ready to revolt against him for his inability to prosecute Crooked Hillary.
Of course, the left couldn’t possibly predict the next chapter in the Comey saga, and have fully made asses of themselves in the ensuing shift.
Now that Comey has been fired by the President himself, due in no small part to his completely shoddy work on the Clinton investigation, the liberal left is losing their ever-loving minds. They’ve turned a blind eye to their own hatred of Comey, to instead attack President Trump for the move. (Well, except for Stephen Colbert’s audience who had to be corrected by the liberal host when they cheered his dismissal).
Now, as James Comey departs from his post at the Bureau, he has left behind a letter to his longtime staff. Contained in those words is an attitude and understanding that will send the contradictory liberals spiraling into the world’s most absurd hissy fits.
In Comey’s words:
“I have long believed that a President can fire an FBI Director for any reason, or for no reason at all. I’m not going to spend time on the decision or the way it was executed. I hope you won’t either. It is done, and I will be fine, although I will miss you and the mission deeply.”
The now-former FBI Director also took time in his letter to enunciate that he had no hard feelings, and that his colleagues should continue their work at all costs:
“It is very hard to leave a group of people who are committed only to doing the right thing. My hope is that you will continue to live our values and the mission of protecting the American people and upholding the Constitution.
“If you do that, you too will be sad when you leave, and the American people will be safer.”
While Comey may very well have been an incompetent and ineffective leader of the FBI, there is no doubt that he was a classy individual – as evidenced by this letter to his staff.
Now, if we could only teach the left about poise, class, and tact, there may be an opportunity for a real discussion in our country about how best to protect the American Dream.
