Wyatt Earp. Elliot Ness. J. Edgar Hoover. Inspector Clouseau. James Comey. The names reflect a continuum, from greatness to farce and mediocrity.
In the annals of U.S. law enforcement, no individual has reached such depths of disgrace as James “Cardinal” Comey. The “Cardinal” was a sobriquet that FBI agents used to denigrate their leader. As Deputy Attorney General, he was called “drama queen.” Known for his pomposity and self-regard, Comey cut a swath of arrogance unmatched in the histories of either of those illustrious organizations. He was the cult of personality. He surrounded himself with sycophants, people dedicated to his promotion and their advancement. The Bureau and the public became the losers.
The Comey Memos, a 15-page suicide note, reveal a deeply tortured and troubled man. They have a hausfrau sentimentality. But they are telling nonetheless.
As we watch in amazement the mendacious and fiction-laced Comey book tour (truly a tour de farce), one is struck by the utter phantasm he has created around and about him. With each successive lie, he sinks to a new low. Ask yourself this question: Can you imagine William Webster or Louie Freeh mounting this psychodrama defense of their tenures as FBI director? To ask the question is to answer it.
The American people are being treated to a dose of reality about Washington, D.C. Comey is a symptom. The disease is a voracious, rapacious government filled at high levels by people of immense ego and viciousness. Whether it is the IRS’s Lois Lerner, Comey, or the political thugs Obama installed at the highest echelons of the U.S. Department of Justice, the CIA, the DNI, and the NSC, they all share a common bond: allegiance to a cause unrelated to the Constitution, a cause borne of disdain for the average American and dedicated to power and its use and abuse against political “enemies.”
There now can be no doubt that there was a brazen plot by senior officials of the Obama Justice Department, FBI, CIA, NSC, and DNI to carry out two objectives: to illegally exonerate Hillary Clinton in the email server investigation; and if she lost the election, to frame Trump and his team for crimes they did not commit.
As a former U.S. Attorney, Independent Counsel, Special Counsel to the House of Representatives, and investigator for more than 40 years, I can say all the known facts of record and the reasonable inferences to be drawn therefrom point to just that.
These individuals concluded, with Comey in the lead, that Donald Trump was not fit to be president. They loathed him and everything he stood for. They loved Hillary and everything she stood for. He had to be stopped. She had to be elected. And if she couldn’t be elected, he had to be immobilized, degraded, and run out of office. That meant that the rules of the constitutional game no longer applied because the end result – removing Trump – had a higher moral value. Indeed, it was a moral necessity. The Comey book tour underscores that maniacal belief.
