James Comey is a disgrace. Of that there is no doubt. He sees himself as the perennial boy scout who can do no wrong. He believes that something is right, justified and appropriate simply because he is the one doing it. When he leaks something it's not a leak. When he lies, it's not a lie. It's scary to think such a person could become the head of the premier law enforcement agency in the country.
The Inspector General's report is coming soon and it is expected to torch Comey:
During an interview with Bill O'Reilly on the former Fox News host's website, Davis explained why he thought Comey should have been fired by former President Barack Obama and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.An article in Time magazine goes on to confirm that:
"I was interviewed by the inspector general. I only told one reporter that and it was never written," he said. "So this is my first to say that I was interviewed after my making a phone call researching my book that I considered James Comey to have acted unethically and that he should have been fired by Barack Obama and Loretta Lynch because he violated Justice Department policies by holding a press conference and expressing his opinion publicly on the evidence."
Davis also condemned Comey, who was fired by President Trump last spring, for writing a letter to Congress saying he was reopening the investigation less than two weeks before the 2016 presidential election.
"That's a firing offense. His decision to write a letter 11 days before the election, whether it hurt Clinton or hurt Trump, was not consistent with 50 years of Justice Department policy to do nothing that might impact presidential elections," Davis argued.
The Justice Departments Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, will soon release a much-anticipated assessment of Democratic and Republican charges that officials at the FBI interfered in the 2016 presidential campaign. That year-long probe, sources familiar with it tell TIME, is expected to come down particularly hard on former FBI director James Comey, who is currently on a high-profile book tour. It will likely find that Comey breached Justice Department protocols in a July 5, 2016, press conference when he criticized Hillary Clinton for using a private email server as Secretary of State even as he cleared her of any crimes, the sources say. The report is expected to also hit Comey for the way he reopened the Clinton email probe less than two weeks before the election, the sources say.Comey had no business passing a judgment as to whether Hillary Clinton should face prosecution or not. He totally bungled the investigation. His press conference on the newfound emails eleven days before the election was an effort to cover his own ass. He officially created a two-tiered justice system- one for the Clinton's and one for the rest of us.
Comey has presided over a slew of FBI failures, including Larry Nassar, Omar Mateen and Nikolas Cruz. Comey has fashioned himself as an ignoramus.
Comey said it never occurred to him that there might be a connection between Anthony Weiner and Hillary Clinton.
How ignorant and/or stupid do you have to be to miss that? Or was it by design?

Who’s the “Davis” mentioned several times in the article?
It’s been so long, I had to look it up:
On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
Are they also investigating Brennan? Its a national embarrassment that the CIA Director tried to influence the election.
Lanny Davis, the noted Clinton goon.
This is my guess. The Horowitz report will echo Hillary's criticisms of Comey: (1) Comey was supposed to simply exonerate her, not give a long-winded explanation for doing so and (2) Comey was supposed to sit on the Weiner laptop Hillary emails until after the election.
I suspect those who think Horowitz will come down hard on Comey for the way he failed to properly investigate and prosecute her, i.e, not using a grand jury, letting her destroy evidence, handing out immunity like candy, etc., will be disappointed.
As in “Prosecution was declined” bad news?
Now that you’ve alerted them, it’s likely that “God” will have to go.
See post #12 for the bad news
It’s my understanding that this is just the first IG report, which deals with Hillary’s transgressions and the way the FBI handeled her investigation.
Subsequent reports will be coming out dealing with the FBI’s role (Strzok, Page, Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe) re: the phony dossier, filing a false affidavit to the FISA court etc.
I thought the most recent claim was capitalism that she used but most dems are socialists. Psych help/eval should be offered up for her.
“Davis also condemned Comey, who was fired by President Trump last spring, for writing a letter to Congress saying he was reopening the investigation less than two weeks before the 2016 presidential election.
“That’s a firing offense. His decision to write a letter 11 days before the election, whether it hurt Clinton or hurt Trump, was not consistent with 50 years of Justice Department policy to do nothing that might impact presidential elections,” Davis argued.”
I believe that the ONLY reason that Comey wrote that letter and opened the “investigation” (if that’s what someone wants to call that charade) was in order to pre-empt the NYPD from releasing what it had from Weiner’s (non-classified, non-authorized) laptop that came from the State Dept., courtesy of the Wicked Witch of Chappequa. If Comey hadn’t written that letter, the information would have gone out, in an uncontrolled manner. As it is, Comey was able to pretend that some 50,000 emails were somehow miraculously reviewed by some magic software in a matter of days, and to then “clear” Hillary of any wrong-doing.
Yeah they'll look into Brennan right around the time hell freezes over... As this piece shows they're really angry with Comey over being on Hillary's LIST of reasons she lost the election. That's their only concern... Hillary BIG EFFING LOSS put all the corrupt liberal 'elites' heads on the chopping block.
The IG is a Maobama appointee. ‘Nuff said.
That is good news imo. She will remind everyone again why she lost.
