Comey didnít want to destroy Trump, he just wanted to destroy Trump

James Comey lives in a world of his own rules. The more you listen to him, the worse he gets. Hubris doesn't begin to describe him. Comey testified under oath that he never leaked information nor did he approve of a leak.

That's just not true, but in Comeyworld the rules are different. You see, he believes he  didn't "leak", he just communicated substance:

“First, I didn’t leak memos. I asked a friend to communicate the substance … one unclassified memo to the media, and I was a private citizen.” 
So what, then, is a "leak"?
“I think of a leak as an unauthorized disclosure of classified information,” Comey added.

And here’s where even CNN gasps.

“Really?” Cooper said. “That’s it?”

Yes, Coop. Yes, indeed.

That’s how I thought of it as FBI director,” Comey said. “We investigated leaks. Unauthorized disclosures. The bottom line is, I see no credible claim by any serious person that that violates the law.”

It's how he thought about it that matters, not what the law or ethics say. How Comey thinks about things is the key here. He denied being a leaker and yet admitted being the leaker:
“President’s tweeted innumerable times calling you a leaker — because of that. First of all, what’s your response to President Trump?” Stephanopoulos asked.

Comey acknowledged being a leaker, saying, “Look, it’s true, I mean, I’m the one who testified about it, that’s how people know about it, that I gave that unclassified — this is a whole other conversation about whether you can leak unclassified information, I don’t want to get involved in that."

That self-exculpatory assertion
"I see no credible claim by any serious person that that violates the law.”
Sounds an awful lot like this one:

No credible claim by any serious person that it was against the law.

No reasonable prosecutor would prosecute Hillary.

Apparently he doesn’t know anyone who actually breaks the law.

Comey has lost a lot of memory and doesn’t seems to know much for all his spewing. He comes across as an idiot.

I am waiting for a reprise of that Al Gore classic; “No controlling legal authority!” Fits in perfectly here.

I know the word is over used but Comey is obviously insane.
