Skip to comments.Comey Slammed For Tweet About 'Ethical Leadership'
Posted on 01/01/2018 3:35:01 PM PST by Kaslin
Former Federal Bureau of Investigations Director James Comey provoked many Twitter users Sunday for wishing for “more ethical leadership” in the new year.
“Here’s hoping 2018 brings more ethical leadership, focused on the truth and lasting values,” Comey wrote in what’s widely being interpreted as a shot at President Trump, who fired the director in May.
Here’s hoping 2018 brings more ethical leadership, focused on the truth and lasting values. Happy New Year, everybody.— James Comey (@Comey) December 31, 2017
The backlash was swift.
Here is hoping 2018 the U.S. will have a clean, politically, FBI. 1 that will actually do their jobs. https://t.co/JRJQjT3CFO— David Weissman (@davidmweissman) January 1, 2018
Lordy, how could you type that with a straight face? https://t.co/Yr2zciO48S— Tom (@Tomvegas1) January 1, 2018
Ethical leadership - you mean like being "extremely careless" instead of "grossly negligent?" https://t.co/UJQvkjH1qI— Chicks On The Right (@chicksonright) January 1, 2018
Comey’s tweet comes after the FBI is under intense scrutiny for how it conducted the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, as well as the neutrality of top agency officials.
Over the last year, it was revealed Comey began drafting his July 2016 exoneration statement before key witnesses in the Clinton email investigation had been interviewed.
The inspector general review also is looking into whether FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe – whose wife has strong ties to the Democratic Party – should not have been involved in the investigation.
Other top FBI officials, who worked under Comey and were involved in the Russia investigation, have also come under scrutiny for anti-Trump messages.
Lawmakers have been alarmed by recently revealed texts from FBI official Peter Strzok, who called Trump an “idiot” and who referenced an “insurance policy” against a Trump presidency.

Since being fired from the FBI, Comey has landed a multimillion-dollar book deal reflecting on his career, which is titled “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”
“His book promises to take us inside those extraordinary moments in our history, showing us how these leaders have behaved under pressure,” Flatiron publisher and President Bob Miller said in a statement. “By doing so, Director Comey will give us unprecedented entry into the corridors of power, and a remarkable lesson in leadership itself.”
Comey is corrupt to the core.
That being the wants & desires of the Globalists over the U.S. Constitution.
Glen Reynolds’ reply: Well, you were fired in 2017, so that’s a start.
SPY vs SPY: Mueller Yanks Comeys Immunity Deal; Falling Out Between Former FBI Bosses Puts Comey in Danger!
There has been a reported falling out between U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller and ex-FBI Chief James Comey in recent weeks which leaves Comey potentially vulnerable to possible criminal charges, according to Justice Department and FBI sources.
The stakes have changed in the sweeping Russia collusion investigation that has spread far beyond the 2016 presidential election timeline.
Any immunity agreement that was previously on the table protecting Comey is now off the table, according to multiple DOJ sources. For months since he was fired by President Donald Trump in June, Comey has been testifying and acting like a major D.C. player with little to worry about.
But at some point in recent weeks, that has changed based on new information about Comeys tenure at FBI which has been uncovered during Muellers probe, sources said.
Perhaps this is one reason why Comey has taken to social media to quote scripture and post nature pictures, including one photo of him standing alone amid corn stalks in a field during a sunset in Iowa.

FBI - Famous But Inept.
Heres hoping 2018 brings more ethical leadership, focused on the truth and lasting values. Happy New Year, everybody.
Response from Glenn Reynolds (Instapundit):
Well, you were fired in 2017, so that's a start.
Comey was part of the fraud raid on the Youtube Video guy that Hillary and Hussein blamed Benghazi on.
Comey has been Dirty for years.
Comey leaked a privileged conversation through a friend. He himself said he did it in such a way that he wouldn’t be breaking the law.
And Obama promised the most ethical administration in history. That was a lie also.
“By doing so, Director Comey will give us unpresedented entry into the corridors of power (and the corruption of the highest law enforcement officers in the nation)”.
This ground breaking book will be brought to you by, “ILIEALOT and YOUCAN’TTOUCHME”.
It will surly be a best seller on how to F#CK the American people and walk scott free.
Apparently he is not very bright either. A smart guy in Comey’s situation would STFU and stop drawing attention to himself.
...wishing for more ethical leadership in the new year...
It may happen since he is gone.
...Comey is corrupt to the core..
The most corrupt FBI head Since J Edgar Hoover. I don’t know if he wears women’s clothes like Hoover though. Or, if he ordered his driver’s not to make left turns like Edgar did.
“Comey is corrupt to the core.”
James “no intent” Comey.
“The most corrupt FBI head Since J Edgar Hoover”
Hoover corrupt? You are corrupt. Hoover actually went after real criminals and kept politicians in line with all the shit he had on them. Nothing in our history can compare to the the corruption of our modern day politicians...mostly democrats. Except maybe Lincoln.
