Imagine if you will a "retribution presidency" in which the President of the United States ordered "the investigation and prosecution of individuals who he sees as enemies."

You may think that describes Joe Biden's presidency to a T -- locking up J6ers en masse, ordering the FBI to target the regime's political opposition, having the DOJ work to jail former president Donald Trump -- but it's actually former FBI director James Comey's vision of a second Trump term.

"Think about what four years of a retribution presidency might look like," Comey told MSNBC's Jen Psaki on Sunday.

"He could order the investigation and prosecution of individuals who he sees as enemies."

Translation: ‘If Trump is elected he might weaponize the justice system against us just as we weaponized it against him.’

I wish I could imagine it but Trump did nothing like this during his first term -- he let Hillary Clinton off the hook despite campaigning on "Lock Her Up" and even kept Comey on as FBI Director. One would hope Trump learned his lesson but who knows.

That said, I don't have to imagine Biden locking up and intimidating his political enemies because he's already doing it.

If Trump is going to take retribution on these criminals I might actually have to vote for him!
