Comey just keeps right on slithering.
REMNICK: Do you think we’d be a lot better off with Hillary Clinton as president than Donald Trump?
COMEY: Certainly given her commitment to our traditions and our norms and our values and the rule of law, yes.
Daniel asks some penetrating questions regarding the above:
No one quite embodies the rule of law like a Clinton.
How does Comey know Hillary’s commitments to our traditions? And which traditions are those? Compulsive lying, compulsive thieving and compulsive paranoia?
Does Comey mean America traditions, norms and values? Or lefty ones.
Oh, the answer to that is certainly clear enough, I think.
But wait, it gets even better. The miserable Comey was asked the same question by Jake Tapper, as it turns out, producing a very different response:
TAPPER: Do you think the nation would be better off if Hillary Clinton had won?
COMEY: I can’t answer that. That’s something- that hypothetical is too hard for me to go back in time to try and answer-
TAPPER: You paint a pretty dire picture of President Trump. It’s hard to imagine how you don’t think the nation is better off if Hillary Clinton had won.
COMEY: I don’t think about it in those terms though, Jake.
He wriggles and weasels around some more, leading the author of the Mediaite article to conclude:
That’s quite a drastic shift Comey made within a matter of hours.
It begs the question why the former FBI Director would tell Jake Tapper one thing and David Remnick another. Is it the fact that one interview was on television and the other was on radio? Did Comey simply change his mind between both interviews? Or did he knowingly withhold from Tapper how he felt about Hillary Clinton being our president?
Whatever the truth may be, the man who used to be the nation’s top cop should know of all people how suspicious it looks when someone who’s being interrogated changes their story.
It’s not so suspicious, really; it just confirms that Comey is exactly what we think he is, that’s all. As Treacher once so brilliantly said of Obama, Comey will say whatever he needs to say in order to get through the next five minutes.
That as sad and sorry an excuse for a man as Comey is could rise to the most dizzying heights of federal law enforcement is a wholly damning indictment of—well, everyone involved in his undue elevation, certainly. But also the FBI itself, the DOJ, even America’s degenerate federal government entire, too. The thing that makes it all so entertaining is just how bad he really is at being a scumbucket. Then again, all the good cops I know always say the same thing: it’s the incompetent crooks that get caught.
