James Comey is set to release his book: “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership” on April 17th, 2018. Expectedly, the Left, upon reading excerpts from the book, is praising it and making the claim that there are issues in that book that could really hurt Trump. Spoiler alert: they’re all nothing-burgers.
But that’s a different matter entirely. What I’m focusing on is the fact that, because the media is praising the book and saying this will hurt Trump, the RNC released a video that shows Leftist hypocrisy at its highest.
The video is a compilation of Democrats calling into question Comey’s integrity, credibility and judgment.
The video features short clips of people like Sen. Chuck Schumer saying that he was “appalled by what Director Comey did” upon re-opening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mails; Sen. Bernie Sanders saying: “Comey acted in an outrageous way”; House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi saying: “[Comey] made a mistake… not in the right job”; and even a tweet from Howard Dean reading: “[Comey] may have destroyed the credibility of the FBI forever.”
Which is really saying something when you fast-forward from that moment to today, when the FBI’s credibility as a whole is in tatters.
But perhaps one of the most telling quotes comes from Rep. Jerry Nadler, who said: “The President should fire Comey immediately and he ought to initiate an investigation.”
Now, unfortunately, I couldn’t quite confirm when Nadler said this, but I have every reason to believe he was talking about Obama, not Trump.
Furthermore, upon doing some more research, I came across an article, interestingly enough published on ABC News’ website, that depicts some of the very same Democrats in the video calling on Comey to resign.
First, they have Chuck Schumer, who said: “I do not have confidence in him any longer.”
Then, Nancy Pelosi, whom they quote with the very same quote from this video, saying that he’s not right for the job.
They also have Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN): “If Director Comey cares about the bureau and the rule of law… I’m sure upon reflection of this action, he will submit his letter of resignation for the nation’s good.”
They quote Rep. Maxine Waters: “All I can tell you is the FBI director has no credibility. That’s it.” And even said, in an interview with MSNBC in which she complained about Trump firing Comey, that “If [Clinton] had won the White House, I believe that, given what he did to her and what he tried to do, she should have fired him.”
I just love the Left’s hypocrisy some times.
From now on, every time you see James Comey tweeting at Trump and you see your friend retweeting what he said to or about him, remind them that even Democrats thought he was not credible and lacking in integrity.
Now, going beyond all of that, I believe this is a teachable moment.
You can clearly see what the Left thinks of James Comey when he acts in a way that they do not like. When he steps out of line. When he has some influence in the election and it’s not to hurt the Republican candidate. They attack, bash and destroy him. They question his credibility, his integrity, his judgment and even whether he’s the right person for the job… all of which is something we have been doing since Comey’s firing.
They loved him when he closed the investigation on the Clinton e-mails and let a criminal walk free but berate him when he re-opens the investigation and dealing a blow to Hillary’s chances of winning the election.
Now, I’m not going to say that that very action is what cost Hillary the election. Obama was the worst President of all time and she was just going to be more of the same and the country was tired of it. She was likely going to lose, open investigation or not. But I won’t deny that the re-opening of the investigation hurt Hillary to a certain extent.
Upon the closing of the investigation (the first time), the media had prime opportunity to bury any remnants of an investigation having ever taken place and focus more of their time on Trump. Closing the investigation would’ve allowed the Democrats to claim Hillary’s innocence, but all of those opportunities went out the window when Comey re-opened the investigation (before promptly closing it once more soon after because his friends were angry with him).
The Left’s bias is evident. When Comey helped Hillary, he was a “good guy”, “full of integrity” and “perfectly credible”. But when he steps out of line and does something to anger the Democrats aka doing the right thing, they berate and bash him, hoping to assassinate his character.
Now, he’s back where the Left wants him to be, as a martyr for the Leftist cause to take down Donald Trump, and they have nothing but good things to say about him and his book.
But all of that is irrelevant when there’s very accessible records of Democrats attacking Comey in much a similar way that Donald Trump attacks him. He has questioned his credibility, and evidently, so have the Democrats.
Now, if they’re hoping this book will be the end of Trump, they will be very much disappointed. I doubt this book, particularly when reminding people of what Democrats have said about the author, will do much if anything to harm Trump. If Michael Wolff’s book did nothing, neither will this.
At least this attempt at taking down Trump is a nice change of pace from giving credibility to a porn star. Though they will get back to her once the “hype” for this book dies down.
