James Comey, the man who would be king, has been discredited and disgraced. Totally, in every way possible.
He is a leaker and a liar. He has been shamed by both parties as everyone can rightly point to a time he abused his power and overstepped his bounds to the detriment to this country.
Yet he still went out on Fox News last Sunday and kept at it as if anyone was still buying what he is selling.
The man has no shame:
“As a director sitting on top of an organization with 38,000 people, you can’t run an investigation that’s seven layers below you,” Comey said on Fox last Sunday.
“You have to leave it to the career professionals to do…if a director tries to run an investigation, it can get mucked up in other kinds of ways given his or her responsibilities and the impossibility of reaching the work being done at the lower levels.”
Enter Bill Barr who just called him out and said Comey is lying in an explosive interview on Fox News
“One of the problems with what happened was precisely that they pulled the investigation up to the executive floors, and it was run and birddogged by a very small group of very high-level officials,” Barr said.
“The idea that this was seven layers below him is simply not true.”
But he was just warming up with the most hated and arrogant man in America, James Comey. He called Comey a bad actor who was hiding behind the institution of the FBI.
“One of the things that I object to is the tack being taken by Comey, which is to suggest that people who are criticizing or trying to get to the bottom of the misconduct are somehow attacking the FBI,” Barr said.
“I think that’s nonsense. We’re criticizing and concerned about misconduct by a few actors at the top of the FBI, and they should be criticized if they engaged in serious misconduct.”
Correct. Then he exposed Comey as the sniveling coward he is:
“People feel free to criticize me, and I don’t say, ‘Gee, you’re attacking the honest men and women of the Department of Justice.’”
