The Democrats have gotten their wish from just 6 short months ago; James Comey is no longer Director of the FBI - fired yesterday for his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server. The former FBI director apparently thought it was a prank when he saw news of his dismissal on TV while giving a speech to employees at the Los Angeles office.
Democrats loved Comey before they hated him, and now love him again
Democrats were enamored with Comey over the summer when he famously recommended against pressing charges in the Clinton email investigation. Then, they soured on Comey after he reopened the investigation a little over a week before the election - based on information obtained by the NYPD from Anthony Weiner's laptop while under investigation for sexting an underage girl.
Comey closed the pre-election investigation two days before polls opened, finding no wrongdoing - however the many in the DNC said the damage had been done, with many (including Hillary) blaming the FBI director for Clinton's loss. Comey was vilified by the left, which is perhaps why Stephen Colbert's audience cheered last night when the rabid Trump foe (and Podesta pal) broke the news of Comey's firing. Meanwhile, Democrats in Washington are totally melting down - suggesting things like Trump "staged a coup," and is a traitor for firing the (once again venerable) James Comey.
And it seems that Trump is back to his old ways, talking trash over Twitter - invoking campaign trail Trump:
Some have even suggested Trump even trolled Comey and/or the deep state on Comey's dismissal letter, which spells out "I WIN" down the left side.
Let's take a trip back in time to recall how Democrats felt about Comey after the second email investigation:
Harry Reid (D-NV)
Steve Cohen (D-TN)
new roommate Valerie Jarrett urged Obama to fire Comey. James Brown Maxine Waters had this to say in January
Keith Olbermann is having a grand-mal meltdown:
Let's compare Olbermann from yesterday vs. November 6th
And so on and so forth - Democrats are SHOCKED and APPALLED that Trump would fire the honorable Jim Comey in the middle of the Russia investigation - much of which has been based on an increasingly discredited Russian hacking report from CroweStrike, an Irvine, CA company partially funded by Google, which was the only entity to analyze DNC servers in relation to claims of election hacking.
Quite interestingly - Julian Assange's FBI source says we should prepare for more leaks:
Perhaps, as some have suggested, Comey had been stonewalling internal FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation. Consider the following:
Comey has been a deep state operative for most of his professional career:
- He earned more than $6 million in one year working for Lockheed Martin (manufacturer of the F-35 debacle), the year they became a Clinton Foundation donor.
- He became a member of the board at HSBC bank shortly after NY AG at the time Loretta “tarmac” Lynch let the Clinton Foundation partner slide with a slap on the wrist for laundering drug money.
- He let Hillary off the hook for egregious illegal violations of national security by recommending not to prosecute her.
BUT THEN HE TURNED ON HER!
Here's a thought, get on your tin-foil hat... Thanks to incredibly sophisticated technology at their disposal, the 'deep state' knew early on that Hillary was in big trouble - which is why they started seeding the phrase "fake news" in early 2016 to try and discredit rapidly growing support for then candidate Trump. Using highly predictive data collected from Google, Facebook, Twitter, and the NSA, they were able to gauge national sentiment in near real-time with pinpoint accuracy. Assuming that's what happened, because it did, now imagine that as the election drew nearer the deep state absolutely knew Hillary was going to lose...
What to do?
Have Comey re-open the email investigation, let Hillary lose, and blame the loss on a combination of Russian hacking and Comey's erratic investigative actions throughout the election. Have a Rothschild blame Clinton campaign chair John Podesta for good measure, thus solidifying the notion that poor Hillary was a victim of the Russians, James Comey, and John Podesta's "arrogant out of touch campaign" - thus ensuring HRC wasn't to blame for her own loss, and keeping that sterling Clinton reputation intact.
Lastly, Alex Jones has apparently got some dirt on the Comey situation to be released later today...
