James Comey – F. B. I.
(Forgot Basic Intelligence)
It has been said that James Comey is a standup guy with impeccable credentials. I don’t know who said that, but by his conduct as head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation he should have been fired and faced with criminal charges.
I doubt that James Comey woke up one morning and decided to break the law, but one thing is clear his loyalty was not to the office he swore to uphold, or the constitution he swore to protect and defend, nor to the office of the President of the United States, to whom it is his pleasure to serve.
Yes James Comey has a lot to answer for. He played favorites with the likes of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and played fast and furious with the laws of the United States. This was a betrayal of his office within the F.B.I. and every one of the men and women who take great care to insure that nobody is above the law.
It was James Comey who formed an official dismissal of charges relating to an ongoing investigation of Secretary Hillary Clinton and announced to the dismay of law enforcement agents worldwide that although she made huge mistakes, there was no intent on her part, to violate national security protocol in the handling of classified documents. No Intent? Since when does “No Intent” enter into the picture?
It was James Comey who testified before congress concerning the “Russia Dossier” stating he did not leak any information nor direct anyone else to do so either.
It was James Comey who stated under oath that candidate Donald Trump had not been wiretapped at the Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign; all the while insuring that the wiretap was successfully completed.
Yes it was James Comey who served at the pleasure of the President of the United States (Donald Trump) and it was James Comey who was relieved of that obligation by said president.
Although I have not read “A Higher Loyalty – Truth, Lies and Leadership” by James Comey, but I can state emphatically that unless someone pledges their loyalty to a person, an organization, a nation, or to God, their performance in that job will be way below and beneath the standard of expectation for that job.
A leader leads by example “from the front”, staying focused on the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help him God! Lies are in complete opposition to the truth and are often the basis for legal and punitive action against the person who engages in telling them.
No I doubt that James Comey woke up one morning and said I’m going to go out of my way to break the law, but he did. I wonder how long it took for James Comey to gather all the material for his book, get it to a pseudo writer, then thru a proofreader, and on to a publisher in time to have it on the shelves nationwide, even before the special counsel Robert Mueller has found even one morsel of collusion?
It looks like James Comey simply did what I call a sore loser would do, pout and parade himself in front of any and all news outlets, morning shows or late night talk shows in an effort to paint himself as a wrongly punished government employee who was picked on by President Trump.
Well guess what “Jimmy” President didn’t fire you, although he should have long ago. No you were fired from the FBI for your conduct which violated the Code of Ethics of the FBI. Busted!
One more thing, your book, and your book tour will sink you faster than the sinking of the Titanic! I am the Real Truckmaster!
