Of Course: Comey's Former Special Assistant Jumps Ship to... CNN

It's worse than just that. He quit the FBI, claiming that he was quitting due to "political attacks" on the Bureau.

And then it turned out, ooh, lookie here, he just so happened to have already negotiated a deal with, get this, CNN for a new, almost-certainly-better-paying gig.

Fortuitously enough!

On Friday, a former FBI agent wrote an eye-catching opinion piece in the New York Times, claiming that he had retired from the Bureau because it had received unfair "political attacks" from Republicans in Congress.


Other than its entirely disingenuous premise (alleging Republicans are attacking the FBI as a whole, rather than investigating alleged misdeads under leaders James Comey and Andrew McCabe), the piece leaves out important information.

Nowhere in the opinion article does Campbell reveal the fact that he was James Come's special assistant. Campbell presents himself as someone who is unattached to the current political situation, leaving out the fact that he has a huge vested interest in defending Comey.

But it gets worse. Following the op-ed, John Cardillo, a host for The Rebel and former law enforcement officer, claimed that Campbell also left out the fact that he had already accepted an offer to become a CNN analyst.

THERE IS NO DEEP STATE

ANYONE CLAIMING THAT THERE IS A DEEP STATE
SHOULD IMMEDIATELY BE REPORTED TO THE DEEP STATE
FOR REEDUCATION ABOUT THE NON-EXISTENCE OF THE DEEP STATE

A MIND CLEAN OF THOUGHTS IS A MIND CLEAR OF CLUTTER.

BE WELL, CITIZEN, AND TAKE YOUR REQUIRED DOSES
OF WORK PILLS, SEX PILLS, SLEEP PILLS, AND CALM PILLS.
