Skip to comments.Comey: Trump Is ‘Existential Threat’; GOP Is a Cult that Needs to Lose in 2024

Former FBI Director James Comey said Tuesday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” that former President Donald Trump was an “existential threat” to the country.
He also called the Republican Party a cult.
Cooper asked, “Given the career you have had in the FBI, when you see the former president, now the frontrunner again for the Republican nomination, how big a threat is that?”
Comey said, “A very serious threat to the rule of law, almost an existential threat if he were to become president again. He has tried to take a flamethrower to the FBI, to the Department of Justice to stop them investigating.”
Cooper said, “You believe Donald Trump is an existential threat to the rule of law?”
Comey said, “I do, yes. Were he to become president again, I don’t think America has ever seen and is ready for what he would try and do to the system of justice.”
Cooper said, “The Justice Department has sent a very strong message about what happened on January 6 with their prosecutions, their investigations and prosecutions of some of those responsible. When you hear the former president talking about pardoning, you hear Ron DeSantis talking about looking at pardons, what do you think?”
Comey said, “It’s disgusting. It’s an attack on the rule of law. If anything in this country people should be able to agree on, we should send a message, never again. You can’t intervene by force. You can protest, you can march, you can do what you want, but don’t you dare. That’s the message that has to be sent with those prosecutions. And the idea of undercutting that message makes no sense at all.”

Cooper asked, “So what happens if the Republican Party, which has a long, proud history, if many of its members are talking about, you know, prosecuting the director of the FBI, defunding the FBI — some of them are talking about defunding the FBI. What does that say about the Republican Party?”
Comey said, “I don’t know what the Republican Party is anymore. And I don’t know what its future. I think the American people need to hand it, especially the presidential level, a series of losses until they figure out who they want to be. Because they’re not a party that is consistent with the values of the country.”
Trump IS an existential threat… to Comey and his deep state friends.
If a dirty cop is afraid of Trump, that’s saying alot.
FBI = America’s biggest domestic terrorist organization
Comet should have been hung for being a traitor. He is a POS.
Because the FBI and DOJ are full of LIARS like you, willing subvert the Constitution and Justice for their own Fascist agenda!
guilty as hell
free as a bird
In fact, this is the true history of the commiecrat party:
Party of slavery
Party of a secession that started the civil war
Party of Jim Crow and segregation
Party that gave birth to the kkk
Party that imprisoned Japanese Americans during WW2
Party that started the Vietnam war that left five thousand Americans dead and caused trauma for our veterans
Party that botched the Iranian hostage rescue
Party of infanticide
It's an extremely limited and stale playbook. The news media knows exactly what is going on, but they are co-sponsors of the same.
A corrupt p*ick like Comey should be in prison.
This rat bastard Comey fills me with a furious anger, as does this POS Cooper.
To hear this pap, after all they have done, coming out of their putrid pie-holes.
Assistant Secretary of State Brett Holmgren said on May 30 that abuses of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) are “disturbing,” but he said the program should continue.
This abuse peaked in 2021 when, according to a FISA court-ordered report, the FBI used Section 702 to make over 3.3 million illegal queries of U.S. citizens.
Why isn’t this guy in jail?
Its strange …. Right up until the wu flu , Trump had rebuilt America into something better than it had been in decades. Now if hes reelected hes going to be its downfall. Maybe Comey should look at the current state of affairs and decide when was the country better off.
This coming from the guy that should be in jail but somehow is walking free.
He can never condemn Republicans enough to get back into the good graces of the left, after his 11th hour tanking of their pantsuit princess. SO I think this is where it’s coming from. FU Comey
Evidently, Comey is working to make sure Trump wins the Republican primary.
