For far too long, we have been inundated with lie after lie from former FBI Director James Comey, and it doesn’t seem like we’ll be getting any reprieve from his nonsense anytime soon.
Comey became famous, well, infamous really, for his inaction in the case of Hillary Clinton’s illegal and immoral email server at the State Department. Despite the fact that Comey admitted to finding evidence of severe wrongdoing on Clinton’s part, no charges were filed. Worse still – it appears as though Comey made that decision before interviewing the former Secretary of State herself…
In documents it released on Monday, the FBI confirmed that former FBI Director James Comey drafted a statement about the conclusion of the Hillary Clinton email investigation months before interviewing Clinton.
The records show that on May 2, 2016, Comey emailed Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, general counsel James Baker and chief of staff and senior counselor James Rybicki. The subject of the email was “midyear exam,” and though the email says its contents are unclassified, the body of the email is redacted in the release.
On Monday, the bureau also released a response to the May 2 email. Rybicki sent the response, dated May 16, 2016, to several colleagues: Peter Strzok, Jonathan Moffa, Baker, Trisha Anderson and E.W. Priestap. He copied McCabe and David Bowdich, the associate deputy director. In the email, which is marked “unclassified,” Rybicki wrote, “Please send me any comments on this statement so we may roll into a master doc for discussion with the Director at a future date. Thanks, Jim.”
This has rightfully irked a great many Americans, who were wholly satisfied with President Donald Trump’s reaction to this inexcusable leniency…which was the firing of James Comey.
Now, as Comey attempts to ride out his 15 minutes of infamy with a new book and a promotional tour, he is being asked some tough questions by intrepid journalists…but he is also fielding a whole lot of softball inquiries as well, with none of these questions truly receiving any sort of confident answer.
In a town hall event on Wednesday, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper nailed former FBI Director James Comey for leaking classified information to a friend of his, something that Comey struggled to explain.
“So you did leak memos,” Cooper said to Comey. “Is it okay for somebody at the FBI to leak something, an internal document, even if it’s not classified? Isn’t that leaking?”
This is the point where Comey comes unglued, and you have to see it to believe it.

Comey even attempts to pull some sort of “authority” move by constantly repeating “when I was FBI Director”, wholly hoping to unnerve Anderson Cooper – a man who has never held such a position.
Well, Jimmy, we must remind you that Anderson Cooper has also never been fired from the FBI for being a completely incompetent democratic stooge either.
