It’s been two years since President Trump fired James Comey as FBI director. It led to the appointment of Robert Mueller to take over the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into possible Trump-Russia collusion. And now, CNN had the man on a town hall event, where he offered more red meat to Democrats who want to boot the president from office. He feels that Trump obstructed justice and that he would’ve been charged if were not the president. Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein disagree. The man who leaked sensitive transcripts of the conversations he had with Trump is now some moral authority on what is right. What he did is the equivalent of the insane dude who pours bleach in the office coffee pot upon being fired. Also, this is Comey’s opinion. It’s not backed up by solid evidence. There is none. Move along, folks. Trump will still be president, there was no collusion, no obstruction charge, and the Democrats still lost.
In January 2017, James Comey hit President-elect Trump with the pee tape story. Of course never verified. But tonight, in CNN town hall, Comey kept pee tape hope alive. Left out key fact until Anderson Cooper reminded him. pic.twitter.com/y48gQ0ocpi— Byron York (@ByronYork) May 10, 2019
JUST NOW: @Comey says he believes Trump obstructed justice on at least a few of the 10 episodes that Mueller investigated. And Comey says he agrees with the 800+ former federal prosecutors who said Trump would've been charged if not for presidential immunity. #ComeyTownhall— Marshall Cohen (@MarshallCohen) May 10, 2019
On the Russia collusion myth, Comey is peddling straight garbage, from suggesting that it’s “reasonable” to allow undercover sources infiltrate campaigns to saying Trump could be being essentially blackmailed at this point—these parts seem to do nothing but inflame the psycho legions of the Left who really do think the Kremlin and the Trump campaign colluded in 2016. No wonder why Trump took Comey to the woodshed last night, tweeting,” James Comey is a disgrace to the FBI & will go down as the worst Director in its long and once proud history. He brought the FBI down, almost all Republicans & Democrats thought he should be FIRED, but the FBI will regain greatness because of the great men & women who work there!”

Exactly 2 years to the day since he was fired, James Comey takes to the CNN stage this evening.— GOP (@GOP) May 9, 2019
His prime-time debut is just the latest example of his seemingly infinite quest for the spotlight.

Again, ignore all of this—and this man. In June, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, will be dropping a damaging report on the alleged FISA abuses. From John Solomon over The Hill, we know that the FBI knew that the Trump dossier, compiled by former British spook Christopher Steele, was funded by the Clinton campaign and political in nature. Steele even said he needed to dole out this dirt before the 2016 election. So, as we’ve been saying for months, an unverified piece of political opposition research was cited as credible in the FISA spy warrant application against Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page. And the bureau apparently knew the dossier’s shoddy quality days before they applied for the spy warrant.
.@Comey on saying Hillary was "extremely careless" with classified material: I wish I'd said something "plainspoken" like "really sloppy" so Republicans didn't think she committed a crime. pic.twitter.com/v9g2rqh8WK— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) May 10, 2019
I think a lot of this Spygate stuff will be answered in the coming weeks. And I think Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Susan Rice, and former CIA Director John Brennan are going to look very, very bad. Maybe they can have a town hall event on that: how we spied on but didn’t really spy on the Trump campaign, but it really was because there was a national security priority…also, spying is a dirty word. My eyes cannot roll hard enough.
