Posted on 12/15/2019 9:36:17 AM PST by E. Pluribus Unum
On this weeks broadcast of Fox News Sunday, former FBI Director James Comey said that the Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitzs report on the launch of the FBIs Russia probes use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) was unacceptable.
Comey said, Hes right. I was wrong. I was overconfident as director in our procedures of the FBI and Justice have built over 20 years years. I thought they were robust enough. Its incredibly hard to get a FISA. I was overconfident in those because hes right, there was real sloppiness 17 things that should have been in the application or at least discussed and characterized differently. It was not acceptable, so hes right. I was wrong.
He added, Sure, Im responsible, I was overconfident as director in our procedures, and its important that a leader be accountable and transparent. If I were so director, Id be saying exactly the same thing that Chris Wray is saying, that we are going to get to the bottom of this because the most important question is, is it systemic? Are the problems in other cases?

I was wrong
Does Time magazine do an Understatement of the Year?
Some people did some things. Now let’s move on and pretend it didn’t happen.
ORANGE MAN BAD
Too late! They got you now!
Note to Comey: I believe that this goes without saying...... “You have the right to remain silent. Anything that you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.....” You should know the rest, Convict.
Not sloppiness, but intentional abuse which, however, was caught. “You’re right, Mommy, it was entirely inappropriate for me to have had my hand in the cookie jar.”
Comey has had his hand in tilting things in favor of the Clintons for years - on the Whitewater investigation, regarding the pardoning of Marc Rich, and now this. He is corrupt, but is trying to explain away his corruption to low-information voters.
Oh Please! You got caught! And I hope Durham indicts you!
Already setting the narrative that its someone elses fault.
Mistakes were made. Of course there was absolutely no criminal intent.
That paraphrase of Comeys remarks strongly indicates hes feeling the hot breath of Bill Barrs hounds breathing down his neck. ;-)
When does he show up for prison after this confession?
NO POOP SHERLOCK.
Comey admits he was wrong.
I was one question for Comey. “Who directly told you to do it?”
Uh oh.... It appears some former FBI director’s ass is going to be in a sling... :^)
“there was real sloppiness “
Now where have I heard that before? Sloppiness, hmmm?
“Berger also lied to the public, telling reporters he made an honest mistake by inadvertently taking the documents, which he blamed on his own sloppiness. “
He should still be in federal prison.
Mark this as a turning point for James Comey. Like Obama, he’s a narcissist who can’t stand not being admired and having his opinions sought. After this admission (on the terrible, awful, always bad evil Fox News of all places), his star has begun to set. It won’t happen instantly but he’ll be invited on CNN less and less often now that he’s tarnished, and as it happens it will torment him into pushing even harder, which will just accelerate the speed of his demise.
Wait and see. He’s crashing to earth as surely as one of little rocket man’s burned-up rocket stages. A flaming burnout followed by - nothing.
