Comey Warns Trump Might Use the Constitution Against Him and His Corrupt Friends
It is now well established that the FBI has become thoroughly and possibly irreparably corrupt and politicized, serving as a thuggish arm of the Leftist establishment rather than any kind of law enforcement agency. Its decline accelerated during the tenure of the intensely partisan Leftist apparatchik James Comey as FBI director, but in the six years since Donald Trump removed Comey from office amid a storm of controversy, the lanky corruptocrat has shown not the slightest hint of introspection, much less regret. Instead, he just went on MSNBC to warn that a new Trump administration could see the president weaponizing the justice system. Well, Comey certainly knows all about weaponizing federal agencies for partisan purposes.
Former Biden explainer and current MSNBC host Jen Psaki said to Comey, “You’ve said that Trump poses a near-existential threat to the rule of law, and, and this is something, similar language, that I hear privately from national security officials, some people you and I both know, who will say this, privately, about what a second term could mean. But tell me a little bit about the specifics of what he could try to do. What do you mean by that?”
Comey answered: “Well, think about what four years of a retribution presidency might look like. He could order the investigation and prosecution of individuals who he sees as enemies — I’m sure I’m on the enemies list — because the president constitutionally does oversee the Executive Branch entirely, which includes the Department of Justice, prosecutors and investigators. And so he could commission, direct, that individuals be pursued. He could also direct all kinds of other conduct that people would maybe take to court to try to stop, but who enforces court orders? Mostly the United States marshals service, which is in — part of the executive branch, and reports to the president. And so President Trump could say, ‘I don’t care what the Supreme Court says or these district judges say, I’m tellin’ the marshals service, Don’t enforce the court order.’”
Comey added that Trump’s nefarious powers to prosecute those who have destroyed our federal agencies and turned them into organs of authoritarian deep-state Leftism were going to be difficult to combat, because they were rooted in a flaw of the document that Leftists everywhere hate with burning intensity: the U.S. Constitution. “And so, our Constitution really does give a rogue president, which is what this would be, tremendous power to destroy,” he said. “And so that’s why I’m trying to warn people. Given the way he said he intends to operate if he’s reelected, this will be something we could never have imagined. Again, it seems like science fiction in a way, but it’s what another four years of Donald Trump really promises, which is why — people criticize CNN for their town hall; I want people to stare at the threat that we’re facing and understand that they cannot take the next election off.”
Sadly, Spencer falls prey to the old “VOTE HARDERER AT THEM!” bedtime story at the end, but still. “Rogue,” is it? Well, at least Boy Jimbo is talking about something he knows a helluva lot about there, gotta give him that much. If there’s any single FederalGovCo malefactor I’d most love to see dangling from a DC gibbet with turkey-buzzards pecking his glassy eyeballs out of their sockets, it would have to be him. “The size of church bells” doesn’t even begin to cover it with this officious, egomaniacal dick-with-ears.
