Ooh boy, this is getting good.
We had an idea that the day might come when the Obama conspiracy to keep (and, when that didn’t work, throw) Donald Trump out of the White House would come unraveled before our very eyes. It’s a fortunate truth about human behavior that dirty secrets usually don’t stay secret for long. And rats who were willing to put politics and their careers ahead of American democracy are certainly willing to turn on each other in an effort to save their own skins.
That’s what we’re witnessing right now as disgraced FBI Director James Comey goes on his bridge-burning book tour. He’s determined to come out looking like the “good guy” in all of this, and in order to do that, he’s gotta throw everyone else under the bus…before they do the same to him.
On Wednesday, the idiots of ABC’s The View asked Comey about another disgraced former FBI executive, Andrew McCabe. Perhaps they were hoping that Comey would tell them what the liberal media has been telling them – that McCabe was an innocent public servant whose only crime was to defy the Evil President. Comey, though, did not give them their liberal red meat.
“The McCabe case illustrates what an organization that’s committed to the truth looks like. We investigated — I ordered that investigation. We investigate and hold people accountable,” Comey said. “I still believe Andrew McCabe is a good person, but the inspector general found that he lied, and there are severe consequences in the Justice Department for lying as there should be throughout the government.”
In other words, sorry ‘bout your pension, buddy, but thems the breaks.
As much as we dislike James Comey, it is amusing to watch him turn his “higher loyalty” shtick on his own team.
McCabe’s lawyer, of course, couldn’t stay silent in the face of this betrayal. Attorney Michael Bromwich said Wednesday that COMEY was the liar, not his client.
“Comey has relied on the accuracy and the soundness of the Office of the Inspector General’s (OIG) conclusions in their report on Mr. McCabe. In fact, the report fails to adequately address the evidence (including sworn testimony) and documents that prove that Mr. McCabe advised Director Comey repeatedly that he was working with the Wall Street Journal on the stories in question prior to publication,” said Bromwich.
Er, that makes no sense. Comey doesn’t need to read the OIG report to know whether or not McCabe “repeatedly” sought his permission to leak case information to the Wall Street Journal. This is a guy who writes a memo every time the cafeteria forgets to give him crackers with his soup, so get outta here with this nonsense. If McCabe is in the right on all of this, it would require an interdepartmental conspiracy so massive that it would make the left’s Russia theories look sane by comparison. Somehow we doubt that anyone cares enough about this dude to go through the trouble.
But hey, we’re ready to watch Comey burn down the entire Obama administration with his righteous crusade to prove he’s the nation’s last Boy Scout. A few more weeks of this, and Trump might just hire him back…
