I was in New York City all day Tuesday for Fox interviews, namely a guest appearance on the show “Outnumbered.” As I was boarding my flight heading back to Dallas I heard a passenger say, “Comey has been fired.” Once I got on the plane and into my seat I had a text message from a friend saying the same: FBI Director James Comey had been fired by President Trump.Our DC legislative director sent me an email that included a copy of the termination letter. As you know by now, President Trump had acted upon the recommendation from the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General to terminate the service of Director Comey. So as I was in the air flying back, many thoughts ran through my head. I’d planned to share my thoughts on the comments of former Obama administration DHS official Mohammed Elbiarry who suggested that the Egyptian Coptic Christians were getting their just desserts regarding the recent Islamic terrorist attacks, including the Palm Sunday church massacres. However, I decided to share these thoughts on the firing of Director Comey.
Just in case you missed it, as reported by Fox News, “President Trump on Tuesday fired FBI Director James Comey, abruptly ending a rocky year-long stretch for the top law enforcement officer who came under fire for his handling of the Clinton email probe — and whose agency has been investigating whether Trump’s campaign had ties to Russia.
“The FBI is one of our nation’s most cherished and respected institutions, and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement,” Trump said. The president told Comey in a brief letter that he could not “effectively lead” the bureau and called for “new leadership that restores public trust and confidence” in law enforcement.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the president’s decision was based on “the clear recommendations” of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The White House made the stunning announcement shortly after the FBI corrected a sentence in Comey’s sworn testimony on Capitol Hill last week. The director had told congressional lawmakers that Huma Abedin, as a top aide to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, had sent “hundreds and thousands” of emails to her husband’s laptop, including some with classified information. On Tuesday, the FBI said in a two-page letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee that only “a small number” of the thousands of emails found on the laptop had been forwarded there while most had simply been backed up from electronic devices. But that error was apparently unrelated to the Comey firing. DOJ officials instead cited his handling of the Clinton probe.”Well, just when we thought the news cycle would have to search for something new to drone on about, this happened. And this latest “correction” is just another example of a man, Director Comey, who appears to embody the Bible verse from James Chapter One that warns us of the “double minded man who is unstable in all his ways.”
The problem that developed with Director Comey is that no one could really determine if and when he was being truthful. Also, it’s funny to flip around the news channels and ascertain how different agencies are reporting this development. Apparently some in the liberal progressive media are having a serious meltdown, as if this is signifying the end of the world.
Doggone, here’s the guy that Hillary Clinton just said caused her election loss. Now why wouldn’t the liberal progressive left want him around? As a matter of fact, we all believed that as soon as the election results were tallied and done, Barack Obama was going to fire Comey anyway. So what has the left all up in arms and once again becoming unhinged? These folks are going to lose their minds before years end. I mean seriously, here’s the guy who caused Queen Hillary to lose an election, right? Don’t ya want him punished gone?Nah, the left wanted Comey around to continue the charade about Russian collusion with the Trump administration. In other words, the progressive socialist left wanted Director Comey to prove that the Loch Ness monster and Bigfoot existed. Just on Monday we heard former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, restate that there is no intelligence, meaning evidence, proof, that the Trump campaign, or President Trump, had any political dealings with the Russians.
It’s time to put all this election tampering stuff to bed, unless you want to talk about Barack Obama making a video for the new French President Emmanuel Macron…hmm, talk about election involvement. Funny, I never saw a commercial or video by Vladimir Putin supporting any candidate in our presidential election. Then again, Obama, as a sitting president, did the same in dispatching his campaign operatives to work against Prime Minister Netanyahu, and even had State department, i.e. American taxpayer dollars, used to fund said endeavor. How about an investigation into that my dear leftist friends?Or, if you want to talk about collusion with the Russians, well, let’s start with that uranium deal between Hillary Clinton and the Russians to benefit the Clinton Foundation. Ahh, now isn’t that what we call a conflict of interest, especially knowing this was done by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton? Or how about Barack Obama leaning over, believed to be off-mic, and sharing with then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he would “have more flexibility after reelection.” Medvedev in clear English expressed thanks and said that he would relay the message to Vladimir. Well heck, isn’t that the pure definition of “collusion” with the Russians? Not if you’re a progressive socialist.
The left is fearful that this entire masquerade ball is about to fall apart, hence why they’re demanding a special prosecutor. Trump and Sessions should reply, “nyet.”
The person who’s truly in trouble isn’t President Trump but former National Security Adviser LTG Mike Flynn. Monday’s testimony of Sally Yates and Clapper really did him no good, and that’s where an investigation needs to be conducted.
However, we do need an investigation into how someone can have an unauthorized computer email server in their private residence conducting classified business of the United States…and not be charged? How is it that Huma Abedin could have one classified document shared with her pervert husband over a non-classified means…and not be charged? In both of the cases of Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin we have facts, not a quixotic-style quest against windmills, or a search for the golden fleece.
Director James Comey was fired because he was fleecing America, and there was no way of determining truth with him. Furthermore, Comey should be under investigation regarding the case of one Daniela Green, the FBI agent who shared classified information with an ISIS jihadist, whom she married. How is it that she only got two years punishment, and is now free? It’s time we had an FBI Director who understands what the “I” in FBI stands for – investigation — and realizes they don’t have prosecutorial discretion, as Comey mistakenly believed. They left is truly nervous about a new Director of the FBI who will be a law enforcement officer, and embraces the ideal that no one is above the law, and cannot be intimidated or coerced into surrendering that fundamental ideal.
The unrighteous indignation being displayed by the liberal progressive left is unconscionable, but typical. They’ll spin anything for their political agenda. There’s no evidence against President Trump, but there’s a whole lot against Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Huma Abedin — that scares them. Perhaps we’ll finally see justice being blind once again with a new FBI Director. And while he is at it firing rascals, President Trump should fire the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service, John Koskinen…oh yeah, and get rid of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and Richard Cordray. Heck, if you’re on a roll, might as well keep going.
Let’s be honest here, the left despised FBI Director James Comey, but he served a purpose for them. He played their cat and mouse game of Russian involvement in our elections. Now he’s gone, and the left no longer has a puppet to master. Comey wanting to hurt Hillary Clinton’s chances to win last November? A total fabrication. But the left wanted to use Comey to inflict hurt and anguish upon President Trump, a total truth.
