Former FBI Director, James Comey, has recently resurfaced with flare fit for a king. It’s strange since he has tried to bill himself as an impartial public servant and patriot. However, this public servant just inked a massive “Tell All” book deal, and a primetime TV interview slot with former Clinton staffer, George Stephanopolous.
Comey, who has flipped in recent years from a savior of the left, to s right-wing hero, and back to an anti-Trump villain, is currently a darling of the leftist in mainstream media. He is trying to again discredit President Trump, so of course, liberals are claiming he is a great hero once again. The truth of the matter though is that Comey is simply an attention seeking, political hack.
During the Hillary Clinton investigation, he grandstanded when he gave an hour-long press conference on all of Clinton’s misdeeds, and then told the Department of Justice not to press charges. Next, he put himself back in the limelight when he announced he was reopening the Clinton investigation just days before the election. Months later he refused to tell the public that President Trump was not under investigation, even though it was true, which eventually led to his firing and painted him as a martyr.
Now he’s pretending he’s just a patriot who cares about exposing ‘the truth’ about President Trump. However, if he were just a truth-seeking public servant, why didn’t he just tell us all ‘the truth’ months ago? Why did he wait until we were gearing up for the 2018 midterms? And why did he feel the need to get a major book deal? The truth is he’s just a political grandstander who loves the attention like everyone else in the swamp.
In response to his grandstanding, President Trump and Republicans have launched a new website called LyinComey.com. The Left, since they need him to be a golden-boy right now, is calling this site unfair, but it just lays out the facts about this Washington bureaucrat.
