It makes sense, as the recent actions and testimonies of FBI Director Comey have been bewildering, appearing to tightrope appeal to both sides while using the law and agency discretion seemingly at whim. Is the reason for these "interesting" actions because he is an elite fixer?
"I'll say this for the suddenly departed FBI honcho James Comey: He's caused enough cases of whiplash to collapse Obamacare before the end of the week" wrote Mark Steyn.
Without question, Comey's tenure was a circus act, and he had to go.
Then came his Congressional testimony.
The left was hoping he would drop a bomb which would fuel the fire to impeach President Trump. Boy howdy, the level of disappointment they must have.
Comey had no smoking gun within his testimony, revealing a significant dislike for Trump. However, Comey seemed to create more questions than he answered.
He appeared to commit perjury based upon previous testimony when he described himself as playing a role in leaking information to the media. In addition, questions were raised about his lack of control of presumed confidential conversation.
What other information did Comey feel it necessary to leak?
Another interesting portion of his testimony is when he described waking up in the middle of the night, thinking that if tapes existed Trump may potentially release, he had to get out front of it by leaking his version of the events. Well, if he was accurate about what happened, it would seem to me he would sleep fine knowing he would be vindicated upon their release. He did not, and that tells you about everything you need to know.
Comey also described troubling actions by former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, seeming to implicate himself in inconsistent action and potentially partisan obstruction.
“We need to round up all those people he [Comey] talked to – because we have a conspiracy remaining a foot in the Department of Justice that is going to be out to destroy this president and they’ve got to be fired if not worse.” - Rep. Louie Gohmert (R:TX).
Comey comes across well to the ill informed; however, his a deeply partisan egotistical individual who if given the opportunity, would plan to direct outcomes to his hearts delight.
Thankfully, he has been removed from having that opportunity, and should actually be investigated.
