Nonpartisan Unbiased Lifelong Republican Reverend Jim Comey: We Have Use "Every Breath We Have" To Push Trump Out of Office

There are only two ways to explain this:

Either he was already incredibly biased against Trump at the start of of his "investigation" and therefore should have recused himself, or started unbiased but became outraged, radicalized, and insane because Trump decided he wasn't doing a good job and fired him.

Neither is very reassuring about this "investigation," the FBI, or the permanent Derp State of bureaucratic Washington.

Former FBI Director James Comey asked American voters Sunday night to end Donald Trump's presidency with a "landslide" victory for his opponent in 2020.

"All of us should use every breath we have to make sure the lies stop on January 20, 2021," Comey told an audience at the 92nd Street Y on New York City's Upper East Side. He all but begged Democrats to set aside their ideological differences and nominate the person best suited to defeating Trump in an election.

"I understand the Democrats have important debates now over who their candidate should be," Comey told MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace, "but they have to win. They have to win."

...

"Leakin' James Comey must have set a record for who lied the most to Congress in one day. His Friday testimony was so untruthful!," Trump wrote, adding in a second post: "On 245 occasions, former FBI Director James Comey told House investigators he didn't know, didn't recall, or couldn't remember things when asked."

Comey laughed at the idea Trump had even looked over the actual testimony, joking to Wallace before she could read the tweets, "He's finished reading the 253 pages?"
After hearing the words out loud, he turned serious.

"My reaction to it is actually disturbing to me, which is kind of, 'Eh, there he goes again.' I thought I was 'Lyin' James Comey' now I'm 'Leakin' James Comey'. But I kind of shrug and sometimes smile and laugh about it and then I have a secondary reaction, which is to be horrified at my own numb reaction," Comey said. "We have to remind ourselves the President of the United States of America is publicly announcing that people are committing crimes, that they should be in jail."

Comey used the power of the state to put Trump in jail just because he wanted Hillary Clinton to be president, but it's dangerous for Trump to tweet at him.

And note that CNN claims that Trump is claiming without evidence -- the media's new favorite phrase -- that Comey is not telling the truth when he claims so much failure of memory. But as the next article points out, there is evidence of this -- at least of Comey claiming a suspicious amount of early-onset dementia.

On Friday, Comey admitted to congresssional questioners that he never even bothered to verify the claims made in the "dossier" he used to secure a FISA against Trump and people in his orbit, and made the further astonishing claim that he doesn't think it's his job to do so.

Republican lawmakers were aghast at his sudden lack of recollection of key events.

He didn't seem to know that his own FBI was using No. 4 Justice Department official Bruce Ohr as a conduit to keep collecting intelligence from Christopher Steele after the British intel operative was fired by the bureau for leaking and lying. In fact, Comey didn't seem to remember knowing that Steele had been terminated, according to sources in the room.

"His memory was so bad I feared he might not remember how to get out of the room after the interview," one lawmaker quipped. Lamented another: "It was like he suddenly developed dementia or Alzheimer's, after conveniently remembering enough facts to sell his book."

Faintness of memory is a common symptom for witnesses under the intense spotlight. But lawmakers were relieved when Comey could remember one fact that is essential to understanding if his FBI acted appropriately in the investigation of Donald Trump and Russia.

The towering ex-FBI boss confessed that the FBI had not corroborated much of the Steele dossier before it was submitted as evidence to a secret court to support a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in the final weeks of the election.

And Comey admitted much of the dossier remained uncorroborated more than six months later when he was fired by President Trump.

...

Comey now has confirmed what Republican lawmakers like Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) have warned about for months -- that the FBI used an unverified dossier, paid for by presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party as political opposition research, to justify spying on the duly nominated GOP candidate for president just weeks before Election Day.

John Solomon's whole article is good.

Note that the media uses the phrase "without evidence" to describe the statements of Republicans who are first-hand witnesses to events. In other words: They don't count.
