James Comey Gloats About Flynn Guilty Plea On Twitter

Former FBI Director James Comey just couldn't help himself.

Shortly after his longtime friend and former colleague Robert Mueller procured a guilty plea from former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who will reportedly testify against President Trump and members of his family, Comey tweeted a Bible passage in what seemed like gloating: "But justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream".

 

 

Two days earlier, Comey published another cryptic tweet that seems to suggest he might've had advance knowledge of the Flynn plea - something that would've been improper given his status as a witness in the Mueller probe.

 

 

Moments after news broke about Flynn "flipping" on Trump, Flynn released a statement saying he acknowledged his actions were wrong.

After over 33 years of military service to our country, including nearly five years in combat away from my family, and then my decision to continue to serve the United States, it has been extraordinarily painful to endure these many months of false accusations of "treason' and other outrageous acts. Such false accusations are contrary to everything I have ever done and stood for. But I recognize that the actions I acknowledged in court today were wrong, and, through my faith in God, I am working to set things right. My guilty plea and agreement to cooperate with the Special Counsel's Office reflect a decision I made in the best interests of my family and of our country. I accept full responsibility for my actions.

At the same time, Trump attorney Ty Cobb issued a statement about Flynn:

"Today, Michael Flynn, a former National Security Advisor at the White House for 25 days during the Trump Administration, and a former Obama administration official, entered a guilty plea to a single count of making a false statement to the FBI.
 
"The false statements involved mirror the false statements to White House officials which resulted in his resignation in February of this year. Nothing about the guilty plea or the charge implicates anyone other than Mr. Flynn. The conclusion of this phase of the Special Counsel's work demonstrates again that the Special Counsel is moving with all deliberate speed and clears the way for a prompt and reasonable conclusion."

Comey's twitter description of himself:  "Taller and funnier in person."In other words, we are not to believe what we see or hear about this guy from someone else, but we must believe what he writes.  He is, like other liars, telling you what to think about him.  He is the epitome of social disgrace, with a severe image problem over his height and personality traits.Comey, you lied to Congress and white-washed Hillary Clintons fraud and treason.  You SIR should be hanged.  Satan also quoted scripture, so your attempt to bring the Lord God into your lies has been seen by me as total self compromise and total personal failure.  God will judge you accordingly, from which you will NEVER escape and to whom you can never convince that you are taller and funnier.Your soul is deeply disturbed - probably tied to Clinton money, which is why you're honoring evil.

I wonder if James Comey knows what's coming for both he and his brother, Peter?Peter Comey, counsel for the Clinton Foundation ala DLA Piper.https://www.congress.gov/crec/2016/09/12/CREC-2016-09-12-pt1-PgH5326-3…, mark the name of DLA Piper (super elite/whiteshoe law firm)...mark it well -- you'll be learning much more about it in the months to come.hmmmm.the director of the FBI has a brother who just so happens to work for the law firm that coordinated U1, specifically in aranging bribes (145 million +) to the Clinton Foudation; not only that, this brother (Peter Comey), is the point man in DLA Piper for the Clinton Foundation.enjoy your guilty plea, commies.  this may be your last weekend of mirth.Flynn will get a pardon, and his actions will be fully understood within the context of the whole situation.  Hell, Flynn's gonna be all but forgotten when the indictment blizzard hits.DLA Piper will be defunct in two years.janus

i guess you guys are unfamiliar with the whole, 'i've got good news & bad news...bad news first' thing.and if this is the extent of the bad news (and it is), brace yourselves for some very good news.also, i think all/most of you will soon be pleasantly surprised by Sessions.  have any of you ever thought that, in the absense of a special prosecutor, Sessions hasn't recused himself...ipso facto, no need for a special prosecutor?  it's a possibility you should at the very least entertain. moreover, if the extent of this probe is as complex and all-encompassing as many of us believe, why would he prematurely execute indictments or tip his hand to the adversary?janus

Wonderful tidbits Janus. Couldn't happen to a nicer pair, since they don't have a pair between them.Sure hope you are right about Sessions, since all I've seen is him hitting Mary Jane and civil forfeiture widened. I disagree huuugely with both, but he could redem himself if he tackles the pair on his way to putting Hitlerty in an orange pantsuit. She would look so good in one dontcha know.
