Skip to comments.FBI Director James Comey Is Unfit for Public Service (Newsweek Nov. 2016)

James Comey should not simply be fired as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He must be barred forever from any form of public service.
In the last 10 days, Comey has whipsawed the election for president of the United States. Now we know he did it for no reason. When his agents found information that suggested there were emails on a laptop that might have relevance to the investigation of Hillary Clinton and her email servers, Comey did not wait until he knew even a scintilla of information before announcing it to the world. Reasonably, lots of voters assumed there must be a there therewho could imagine a person with the power of the FBI director would turn the election on its head for no particular reason, on the basis of nothing?
Well, forget it, Jim. Were not moving on. America has just witnessed one of the mostif not the mostegregious abuses of power in the service of one mans ego in its history. Joseph McCarthy and A. Mitchell Palmer at least believed they were fighting a Communist threat. Richard Nixon, in Watergate, at least had the motive of retaining power and covering up wrongdoing. But Comeywho I do not believe did this for partisan reasonshas no such motive. This was about him, about preserving his now forever-destroyed reputation, about preening with his self-satisfied standing as a maverick who acts based on what he thinks is right, regardless of others opinion. But there is a very thin line between being independent and being reckless. And Comey has demonstrated he does not know the difference. . .

He’s as crooked as the day is long.
I love how CNN with their reporting on how they got Trump now with what Comey said today. Can’t wait for it to blow up in their face.
I think Pres. Trump made a big mistake by not firing him.
Then he pulled back about the emails. There's something that doesn't add up about those or that whole matter.
But he may not be fit to serve. I don't know.
Comey is not a legitimate law enforcement officer and a disgrace to the profession. He is a political hack and has brought extreme embarrassment to the Bureau and every true LE officer in the land. He needs to be expelled from the post, the sooner the better. He is a snake and BS artist.
Nobody on the Left or Right seems to like this dolt. Why does Comey still have his current job?
Ha ha! About two dollars more than it is worth.
Maybe Trump knows things you don’t.
After not finding any culpability that Hilary intentionally destroyed or mishandled classified emails and after telling the DOJ to not order an investigation into the possibility that Trump tower was wiretapped I stand by what I said.
He probably has the goods on all of them!
Comey is a well known globalist. Anyone surprised is acting.
Is or isn’t the Clinton email scandal ongoing???
That is a big issue and requires major action!!
Well, it’s kind of hard for a country boy to understand what is being ‘heard’ in all those hearings going on down there and who is being truthful and who is playing for another few minutes on the front page. I don’t trust the FBI anymore and never did trust Congress, so all we can hope for is a giant DC sinkhole to ease our pain, but maybe we shouldn’t be too dismissive of the FIBBERS, at least they were able to find the game jersey of what’s his name, stolen after the last Super Bowl. I do sleep a little easier....
