Courageous or cowardly? Hero or Bum? Liar or Story Teller? Winner or Loser?Patriot or Conniver? What’s your assessment?Write a comment to let me and everyone else know your thoughts. Enquiring minds want to know.
Who is more corrupt? James or Peter? Oh, didn’t you know he has an equally duplicitous brother who is deeply involved in swindling the American public. No, you didn’t. You thought James was just a tall guy who got caught up in politics.
Which Side are You On?
Republicans, Democrats, everyone in between and on the fringes, have an opinion and there appears to be multiple sides to this debate. America is picking and choosing when to call Comey a liar and when to praise him for his honesty. Truthfulness now depends on ideology as all sides are surrounding this issue. It depends on whom you ask, and when you ask them. Don’t be surprised if the politicians and the Shady Stream Media do multiple Comey flip-flops.
Consider Sen. Chuck Schumer, the Democratic minority leader. Asked if President Trump could be guilty of obstruction of justice, he cited Comey’s testimony that the president pulled him aside at an Oval Office meeting the day after he fired his national security adviser and suggested that “we drop any investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn in connection with false statements about his conversations with the Russian ambassador in December.”
But when CBS “Face the Nation” host John Dickerson asked Schumer about Comey’s other sworn testimony that day — suggesting former President Barack Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch, politically interfered in Comey’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information — Schumer was suddenly dismissive.
Look, I heard what Jim Comey said,” Schumer said. “But I haven’t heard Loretta Lynch’s side of the story. So, I’m not going to come to a conclusion as to who was right or wrong. Or whether it rises to the level that she should come testify.
Comey was under oath when he dropped the bombshell that Lynch instructed the Justice Department to align its characterization of the investigation with Hillary’s campaign rhetoric, avoiding the term “investigation” in favor of “matter.”
Comey further testified that he was so concerned Lynch was in cahoots with Hillary’s campaign, especially after learning she had secretly met on a plane with Hillary’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, that he considered personally calling for a special counsel to take over the investigation.
The Comey and Mueller Reunion
And then how about this? Think you’ll ever get the true story? This isn’t the first time Comey and Mueller have found themselves sharing the same high-profile headlines. The two have a working relationship that can be traced back to December 2003. Maybe earlier. Comey joined Mueller in Washington after he became John Ashcroft’s deputy attorney general. According to a 2013 Washingtonian article about the two men’s long-standing relationship.
We’ve been set up. Yeah, I know. The GOATs and the RHINOs will both call me an idiot and tell me I made this up. It couldn’t happen, they’ll say. That’s okay. I’ve been called lots of stuff before. Heck, you should have met my DI. Anyway, how can a best friend investigate a best friend and come up with an honest, objective finding?

Were you shocked or appalled when former President Barack Obama appointed the so-called “Republican” James Comey as director of the FBI? If not, you should have been. New evidence indicates that Comey was appointed because he was implicated in the Clintons’ corruption. A political bribe?
Now, it’s Mueller and Comey. “He and Mueller spent many hours together, developing a close partnership; watching together the disarray in the government over how to respond to the unfolding war on terror,” Washingtonian notes. “They shared a horror at the poor-quality information infiltrating the upper reaches of government.”
Peter Comey and the Clintons and Obamas
Former FBI Director James Comey had numerous ties to the corrupt Clinton political machine, and he still does. One connection is his brother, Peter. Peter Comey is an executive at DLA Piper, the law firm responsible for filing the Clinton Foundation’s taxes. James Comey holds the mortgage for his brother’s mansion, tying a direct financial connection between Comey and the Clinton Foundation while he was investigating Hillary.
James Comey was appointed by Obama because he was a political insider with many dark connections to the Democrats. Obama trusted Comey not to target the establishment he was a part of. The former president’s hunch was ultimately proven correct, as James Comey allowed numerous Democrat crimes to go unpunished during his three-year term leading the FBI.
James Comey and the Clinton Criminal Network
James Comey has been connected to the Clinton criminal network for decades. In 1996, James Comey acted as the deputy special counsel for the Senate committee investigating the Whitewater scandal. The Senate was investigating shady real-estate loans authorized while Bill Clinton was governor of Arkansas. Many people connected to the Whitewater company were arrested and charged with more than 40 crimes, yet the Clintons remained unscathed. James Comey acknowledged that Hillary Clinton obstructed the investigation and destroyed evidence, yet he decided not to prosecute due to lack of “intent.”
Comey decided not to press charges for Hillary’s mishandling of classified information, even after condemning her actions. The same phony “intent” excuse was used.
James Comey and the Two-Tiered Justice System
James Comey was rewarded for enforcing a two-tiered justice system where the political elite live free from consequence. He moved into the private sector in 2005 when he was hired as General Counsel for Lockheed Martin. He was paid more than $6 million before leaving the corporation in 2010 to become a partner of the Clinton Global Initiative and was awarded 17 contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department. He joined the board of directors of HSBC Holdings, a British bank. The bank is a long-time partner of the Clinton Foundation.
James Comey’s career highlights the incestuous pay-for-play relationship between major corporations and the political elite. Comey let the Clintons off for their crimes and was heavily rewarded by corporations who were, in turn, rewarded with government contracts and favorable policy.
This is exactly the swamp that President Trump promised to drain, and removing Comey was the first major step. It will take a majority of the more than 320 million American citizens to help “Drain the American Swamp.”
