Dropping the Hammer on Comey... Brilliant!

There are very few crime/mystery novels that approach this true story for
compelling drama, intrigue and brinkmanship (with the nation in the
balance).

Don’t believe the fake-media story that Trump made a mistake or huge gaffe
by firing Comey.

Don’t believe the media narrative from the left that it was an attempt to
silence Comey from some investigation into Trump.

Don’t believe the RINO narrative that Comey is a good guy just trying to
do his job in terrible circumstances and the timing was bad.

Don’t believe the lie that Comey was admired and respected by career FBI
investigators and agents.

Don’t believe the lie that Trump’s “tweets" are not professional and have
no strategic purpose. His tweets are weaponized and deadly.



James Comey is a poisonous snake of the highest order… a deep-water Swamp
Denizen who has been highly paid to deliberately provide cover for
high-level corruption by the Clintons and Obama. He is has been central to
trying to destroy the Trump campaign and then the Trump administration from
the start. He is as dirty as they come in DC. He had highest-level cover
(the FBI no less) and was deep into an effort to eliminate Trump. Trump had
to move hard, fast, and at exactly the right time to cut the head off the
snake without getting bitten by the snake or being finished by the other
swamp denizens.

Begin by noticing how the President fired Comey when Comey was 3,000
miles away from his office, that Comey had no inkling he was being cut, that
all his files, computers, and everything in his office were seized by his
boss Sessions and the justice department. This was not a violation of
protocol, it was tactical. Notice how Prez Trump compartmentalized the
strike and did not inform any of his White House “staff” to prevent leaks.
Notice how he emasculated Comey and the swamp denizens by letting them know
in a tweet that the Attorney General got information (surveillance “tapes”
from the seizure of Comey’s office) to let Comey and his handlers know that
Trump’s DOJ has the goods on them. This was a brilliant, strategic and
totally imperative move at exactly the right time against horrible, evil and
corrupt powers infesting our government.

The swamp is on notice that the President is on to them, they are
sweating bullets because their criminal games of corruption are being
pursued and they know it. They are screaming and ranting because they are
desperate denizens of the swamp who are beginning to realize they are
roadkill.

THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE COMEY SCAM. Taken from credible
public sources (readily available if you want to look or want me to sent
them to you), with a few reasonable “fill in the blank” conclusions of my
own.>>>>>LISA FRANK<<<<<

The Highlights:

Comey was a minor assistant US attorney in the late 90’s. He only gained
power and money by being the DOJ official who “investigated” and cleared
Bill Clinton of any wrong-doing in Clinton's totally corrupt pardon (for
huge payoffs) of criminal financier Marc Rich as Clinton was leaving the
Presidency. This is how Comey began his career as a creature of the “swamp”
years ago, as a servant of the Clintons.

Comey provided “cover” for the Clintons in their gaining incredible power
and wealth after leaving office through pardoning a billionaire
money-launderer, arms dealer and criminal. Comey was a key piece in how the
Clintons upped their corruption game and gained incredible wealth through
their foundation after leaving the White House. A huge part of the scheme
was giving Marc Rich a free pass when he should have spent life in prison,
and that is what Comey covered-up for the Clintons. This set up Comey to be
part of the corruption machine, making him powerful and wealthy.

Immediately after doing the Clinton’s dirty work as a DOJ official, Comey
resigned from the DOJ and took a position as the head attorney (Counsel) of
the Lockheed Martin company, a huge military contractor. While he was in
that position Lockheed became a major contributor (millions) to the Clinton
Foundation and its fake charity spin-offs. In return for these payment to
Clinton Inc., Lockheed received huge contracts with Hillary’s state
department. Comey was the chief legal officer of Lockheed throughout this
period of contributions to Clinton Inc. in return for State Dept. contracts.

In late 2012, after overseeing Lockheed’s successful relationship with
the Hillary State Department and the resulting profits, Comey stepped down
from Lockheed and received a $6 million dollar payout for his services.

In 2013, the largest bank of England, HSBC Holdings, was deep into a
scandal. Investigations by federal authorities and law-enforcement had
revealed that for years HSBC had been laundering billions of dollars for
Mexican Drug Cartels, channeling money for Saudi banks who were financing
terror, moving money for Iran in violation of the sanctions, and other major
criminal activity. HSBC’s criminality was pervasive and deliberate by the
Bank and its officials. HSBC was a huge Clinton Foundation contributor
(many millions) throughout the “investigation” and Bill Clinton was being
paid large personal fees for speaking at HSBC events (while Hillary was Sec
of State). Eric Holder and the Obama Justice Department did what they were
paid to do, and let HSBC off of the hook for a paltry 1.2 Billion dollar
fine (paid by its stockholders), and not one Director, officer or management
member at HSBC was fired or charged with any criminal. Exactly when
everyone involved with HSBC Bank (including the Clintons and all of their
“donors”) were being let off without penalty, and cover had to be provided
to HSBC, Comey was appointed as a Director and Member of the Board of HSBC
(in the middle of the fallout from the scandal). He was part of the effort
to cover up the scandal and make HSBC “respectable” again.

After about a year as HSBC director, despite his lack of any law
enforcement experience, no DOJ leadership experience, and no qualifications
for the job, Comey was appointed FBI director by Obama. The only
qualification Comey had was that the Clinton’s and their cronies knew Comey
was in bed with them, was compromised and was willing to do their dirty
work. Comey was appointed to the FBI right when Hillary was leaving the
State Department, and was vulnerable to the FBI because she had been using a
private-server, mis-handling classified information, selling access to
favors/contracts from the State Department to Clinton Foundation Donors
(including Comey’s Lockheed Martin), and much more. Remember that this was
about the time the Inspector General of the State Department found over 2
billion “missing” from the State Department finances during Hillary's
tenure.

The obvious conclusion is that Comey was appointed to the FBI (along with
other reliable Clinton-Obama cronies) to run interference for the Clinton’s
and Obama’s at the nation’s federal law enforcement agency(in conjunction
with a corrupt Department of Justice). Comey was and is owned by the
Clintons. He owed all of his power and wealth to being part of their
machine and providing them with cover.

In late 2015 and early 2016, information began to come out about the
Clinton Foundation and its use by the Clinton’s as a multi-billion dollar
slush fund for corruption and political favors. (even Chelsea’s wedding had
been paid for by the “charity) This was right as Hillary was beginning her
campaign for President. It was revealed that the Foundation had never
completed required reports or had an audit. Supposedly the FBI, under
Comey, began an “investigation” of the Clinton Funds. A “professional”
accounting firm was brought in by the Clintons to do a review, file some
reports, make recommendations to the Clinton Foundation Board, and provide a
veneer of legitimacy to the Clinton Fund operations. Predictably, one of
the partners in the firm that was chosen (and paid lots of money) is the
brother of James Comey (FBI Director). This brother owes James Comey
$700,000 for a loan James gave him to buy a house, and presumably some of
the money from the Clinton Fund was used to make payments to James on the
loan. Over 2 years later and nothing has happened as a result of the FBI
“investigating” the Clinton Funds under Comey.

No one in congress or federal law enforcement was intending to actually
pursue the Clintons, but Judicial Watch and other independent sources
obtained information proving that Hillary had been running her own server,
sending out classified information, etc. This information began to come out
right in the middle of her campaign to be coronated as President. A “show”
investigation had to be performed to appear to look into it and clear her.
Who to use?...the reliable shill James Comey.

As head of the FBI, Comey (and his lackeys in key positions) deliberately
screwed up the investigation into Hillary’s use of a private server and her
plain violation of national security law on classified information. The
investigation was deliberately mis-handled in every aspect. Comey gave
immunity to all of Hillary’s lackeys, did not use subpoenas or warrants,
lost evidence, allowed the destruction of evidence, failed to do any
searches or seizures of evidence, did not use a grand-jury, did not swear
witnesses, did not record testimony, allowed attorneys to represent multiple
suspects (corrupting the testimony). Everything that could be done to ruin
the FBI investigation and to cover for Hillary was done. A “slam-dunk” case
became a mess. Immunity was given every witness even though they provided no
help. Maybe more importantly, by focusing the FBI on the email scandal,
attention was drawn away from the much bigger scandal of the Clinton
Foundation that could bring down a huge number of corrupt politicians,
lobbyists, and even governments.

Originally, Comey’s job was simply to totally botch the Hillary
investigation and ruin the case against her and her minions within the FBI
regarding he emails. At the same time Comey also started work on a parallel
assignment to illegally “wiretap” and surveil Donald Trump and every other
person involved in the Republican campaign. He was tasked with digging up
any dirt or fact that could be used to hurt the Trump campaign later. This
included using a fake “dossier” paid for by the Clinton campaign to obtain
authorization for the surveillance and to try to associate Trump’s campaign
with the Russians. Under Comey’s direction the Trump/republican campaign was
monitored and surveilled and all information was provided to the Obama
Whitehouse and the Clinton camp all during the campaign.

Lorretta Lynch was supposed to complete the coverup for Hillary as
Attorney General by issuing a finding that the deliberately botched FBI
“investigation” did not justify prosecution of Hillary. But someone screwed
up and Bill Clinton was video’d meeting with Loretta Lynch in Arizona
shortly before she was supposed to make her decision on Hillary
(interference with a federal investigation), and Lynch could no longer
credibly squash the Hillary scandal. The solution, give the job to James.
The Clinton’s owned him and he would have to do whatever is necessary to
provide cover.

Comey goes on national TV and violates every rule of the FBI, the Justice
Department and American law enforcement by revealing some of the FBI’s
“evidence” of what Hillary did (enough to make it look like the FBI and
Comey did some investigation), then declaring that there was no “intent” and
clearing Hillary. He did what he was ordered to do. The Justice Department
and Obama backed Comey’s coverup and it looked like Hillary had survived the
scandal.

Then, right before the election, the NYPD obtained pervert Anthony Wiener’s
laptop and found classified emails from Hillary on the laptop. The NYPD
began leaking details to new-media outlets, and the story was about to
explode. Comey once again stepped in to cover Hillary. He short-circuited
the NYPD leaks by publicly acknowledging the laptop and the emails, but then
claimed just days later that hundreds of thousands of emails had all been
reviewed and “nothing new” was on the laptop. Once again, he had done his
job. Providing cover and FBI “protection” for Hillary on the newest scandal
when it broke.

If Hillary had won, Comey would have kept right on providing cover for
the corruption of the Clinton machine. He would have kept the FBI
paralyzed, prevented the Clinton Fund from being investigated, and continued
to do his job as the Clinton’s personal scandal eraser at the FBI.

BUT TRUMP WON.

The Swamp and its bottom-dwelling denizens realize they are at risk from
this political outsider who is not connected to the uni-party machines.
Before Trump takes office, a “failsafe” plan is implemented to ruin Trump’s
administration and try to force him out of the Presidency. The key players
committed to the plan are the democrat politicians, the RINO establishment,
the media, the Obama-Clinton operatives imbedded throughout the intelligence
agencies and the entire bureaucracy, and most importantly, the Obama DOJ and
JAMES COMEY. The scheme is to smear Trump with Russian “connections,”
through a fake FBI “investigation” and more importantly, to trap him into a
charge of criminal interference with the FBI. COMEY IS THE CENTRAL FIGURE
IN THE SCHEME TO TAKE DOWN TRUMP.

The surveillance of the Trump campaign is continued after he is elected,
all participants are “unmasked” illegally, and the transcripts are leaked
throughout the government and to the media. When General Flynn
appropriately calls Russian officials on behalf of Trump, they brush off the
old fake “dossier” and all of the surveillance of the campaign, and Comey
creates the “Russian Conspiracy” investigation. With help by RINO swamp
kingpin and warmonger sell-out McCain, the fake "Russian pee dossier” is
leaked to the press. There is no actual evidence of any collusion or
connection between Trump or his campaign with Russia, but that does not
prevent Comey from initiating an “investigation” at the FBI. This provides
Comey with protection from Trump firing him immediately. Comey (or his
minions) constantly leak news of the “Russia Investigation” to the media,
and the media does its scripted part by screaming constantly about “Russia.”
The Democrats fill their role and constantly scream about “Russia.” McCain
and the RINO establishment do their part by promising to “investigate” how
the Russians influenced the campaign.

Immediately after Trump is sworn in, the DOJ Hillary/Obama operatives and
Comey start the direct attack. This is before Sessions has been appointed
to the Department of Justice and the DOJ is still controlled by Obama
operatives. DOJ Obama appointee Sally Yates approaches the Whitehouse with
news that General Flynn had been in contact with Russia and alleges that he
might be compromised. She reveals that there is an FBI “investigation” into
the Russia ties (which they are constantly leaking to the media themselves).
The White House Counsel (who Yates talks to, not Trump) asks for some more
information.

The day before the promised additional information is to be provided by
Yates to the Whitehouse, Comey sets up a dinner with Trump. If he can get
Trump to ask about Flynn or try to intervene regarding Flynn or Russia then
Trump can be charged with “interfering with an FBI investigation.” MY
OPINION IS THAT COMEY SURVEILLED AND “TAPED” THIS MEETING IN HIS ATTEMPT TO
SET UP TRUMP.

This is a two-pronged attack. It protects Comey and DOJ democrat
holdovers from being terminated by the new administration because they are
involved in an “ongoing investigation” that they control the timetable
on(albeit one with absolutely no evidence). If Trump fires Comey then he is
“interfering with the investigation” which is itself a federal crime that
the FBI could then “investigate.” Alternatively, if they can get Trump to
question Comey about Flynn or try to get him to back off of Flynn or the
“Russia” investigation, then they again have him “interfering.”

Trump knows it is a set up by Comey and that he is probably being
recorded (tips from FBI or DOJ who are not part of the corruption?) Maybe
because his phone calls in the Whitehouse as President have already been
bugged and released to the media. (FBI is in the best position to do this)
Maybe because he was used to the Mafia in NY trying to shake him down every
time he built a hotel. Comey tells Trump that Trump is not under
investigation regarding Russia, but that others involved with the campaign
are being investigated. Trump does not take the bait and attempt to
intervene about Flynn or the Russia scam. Later, Flynn is cut loose because
he is being used by Comey and the Obama-holdover Justice to try to damage
Trump. He did not thing wrong, but if he stayed the charge of “interfering
with an investigation” might seem to have teeth. Comey verbally tells Trump
on two more occasions that he is not being investigated, but refuses to
state this fact publicly or when testifying in Congress.

Trump knows everything I have gone through above about Comey. But he has
to move carefully. He has to get his Attorney General and Deputy AG in
place, get enough leverage on the Russia narrative, and ideally get rid of
Comey in a way that allows him to obtain all the information that Comey has
been accumulating (if he is taping Trump he is taping others). Comey, and
others testify in Congress. Under oath, both Sally Yates and Intelligence
officials from the Obama administration state that there has been no actual
evidence of any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. More
importantly, Comey, while refusing to say that Trump is not under
investigation, testifies that he has informed the Senate Intelligence
Committee heads who exactly is under investigation regarding Russia.

Trump tells almost no one at the White House that he is moving against
Comey (so no leaks… no listening in on his conversations) Trump somehow
contacts Sen. Grassley (the Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee) and
confirms that Comey told the Senator that Trump was not under investigation
personally. Trump gets both the Attorney General and the new Deputy
Attorney General to legitimately review Comey’s unprofessional actions at
the FBI and to recommend in writing that Trump terminate Comey. Somehow
Comey goes to California (at the request of AG Sessions or already scheduled
and someone at FBI telling Trump?).

Trump seizes the moment and acts. While Comey is in California, 3000
miles away and 7 hours from his office, Trump prepares a letter firing him
(with Sessions and the Deputy AG recommendations attached). In the letter
Trump states that he had been told 3 times by Comey that he (Trump) was not
under investigation. The letter is hand-delivered to the FBI headquarters
by DOJ officials to lock-down and seize everything in Comey’s office,
including all surveillance files (“tapes”) of Trump and others. All of
Comey’s files, docs, computers and “tapes” are taken to Sessions at DOJ.
They are not taken to the Whitehouse or Trump, but to Sessions, who has
every right to have them. Sessions can tell Trump that Comey had
surveillance tapes of Trump that contradict what Comey has been telling
Trump, and perhaps tapes of conversations with other swamp “conspirators.”
But Trump does not have them personally or at the Whitehouse.

Comey learns he has been fired when the media broadcasts it in
California. He had no idea it was coming and he is ticked. On cue, the
Democrat politicians and media begin screaming about Trump’s “interference
with the Russia investigation” in accordance with the plan to set up Trump
for that charge. The Swamp wants to blow up the Russia narrative using
Comey, and Comey is set to testify before Congress to try to hurt Trump by
saying he was interfering with the FBI investigation. Comey intends to
follow through with the plan to take down Trump.

But because of his brilliant timing on this, Trump has Comey’s files,
documents and information safely with Sessions at DOJ. Trump sends out a
“crazy” tweet that says: “James Comey better hope that there are no “tapes”
of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press.”

The media and the politicians go crazy about the “inappropriateness” of
this tweet. They accuse Trump of “taping” everyone at the WhiteHouse
(forgetting that the Presidents phone calls with foreign leaders have been
“taped” without his knowledge.)

Notice that Trump did not say he taped anyone, or that he has any tapes
at the White House. It seem apparent that Trump is telling Comey that the
DOJ (who has every legal right to possess it) has the surveillance
information and files from Comey’s office, the “tapes" obtained and kept by
Comey. Comey and all the Swamp Creatures understand the clear message…
their plan has failed and Trump’s DOJ is now holding all the cards.

The whole Russia interference scheme crashes and burns. While the
mouthpiece media, Hollywood and the insane fringe continue to scream about
Russia and Comey being fired, the politicians who will soon be in the
crosshairs of a legitimate (and ticked) FBI and DOJ are starting to fall
strangely silent. Comey realizes all the leverage is with Trump and that he
will be lucky if he is not added to the Clinton Death List because of his
knowledge (better not take any baths near an electrical outlet or get on any
airplanes).

Comey tells Congress he will not testify and writes a public letter to
the FBI accepting his firing and telling them he does not want to discuss
why or how he was terminated. Senator Grassley and Senator Feinstein (she
must be covering her butt in fear …) issue public statements confirming that
Comey told them that the “Russia Investigation” does not involve President
Trump personally.

AG Sessions and his Deputy AG use the Comey trove of information to
determine who has been part of the Comey Syndicate at the FBI. They will be
appointing an “interim” Director of the FBI shortly who has not been
compromised by Comey, Clinton or Obama. That “interim” Director does not
have to be approved by Congress or anyone, and can immediately begin
cleaning house at the FBI of all Comey/Clinton/Obama minions, initiating
investigations of the Clintons, Clinton Fund, violations of intelligence
confidentiality laws by Susan Rice and Obama, human trafficking in DC,
political corruption… draining the Swamp. Using the Comey files they can be
fairly certain they are not getting another Comey as an “interim", and they
do not have to wait for the circus of appointing a new permanent “Director”
through Congressional approval. Most of the heavy lifting on rooting out
FBI corruption and starting investigations into the swamp will be done by
the “interim” before a new director is appointed. I suspect the Trump
administration hopes the approval FBI Director process will be slow and
tedious, so there is no political interference with the housecleaning that
is starting.

In one masterstroke, Trump has eliminated a truly toxic and dangerous
enemy to his administration and our country, dealt a horrendous blow to the
Clinton/Obama and deep state machines, begun the restoration of the
integrity of the FBI and the DOJ, and gained incredible ammunition to begin
hunting the foul creatures in the swamp.

Dropping the Hammer on Comey... Brilliant!
Good copy and paste; however, you should cite the source. I'm
snipping because I don't know that.

Another point: good expository writing should avoid what are called
"loaded terms" such as: "James Comey is a poisonous snake of the
highest order…" Any herpetologist could easily refute that statement
because Comey simply isn't a snake.

Yes, I know: it's called a metaphor and salting an essay with a few of
these is acceptable; however, the essay drags on and on with these
"horrible, evil and corrupt powers infesting our government..." etc,
etc, and so forth. My thought is to use the metaphors sparingly so
that they have greater effect; if the author fries us in the first
paragraph, we just get numb to them.

That paper is far from "brilliant" by any standard; it wouldn't even
be a very good high-school essay, at least not for an honors class in
a quality school. Give us a break.

Well, this is an interesting position. Are you suggesting that Barack
is uniquely guilty of this? Might you not give an example of how
"Obama only picked sycophants to rise to top positions" in his
administration? How would you even explain Hillary, who fought an
utterly bruising primary battle with Barack, yet she was nominated as
secretary of state? It's my guess that you have many descriptive
terms for Hillary; however, an "Obama sycophant" does not seem to
apply here.

Further, are you making the *absurd* suggestion that Donald does not
"[pick] sycophants to rise to top positions"? Did Barack place his
daughter in charge of matters economic or national security? Did he
elevate his immediate relatives to cabinent-level positions with
offices in the west-wing?

Do give us a break, sir! You're embarrassing!

Well, this is an interesting position.
STFU you burned out old hippy scumsucker.


Here are 10 of Comey's biggest embarrassments at the FBI:

1. After Dylann Roof killed nine South Carolina parishioners in cold
blood, James Comey admitted that an error in their background check
system allowed Roof to legally buy his gun. "We are all sick this
happened," Comey said of the massive screw-up.

2. Shortly after the NSA scandal exploded in 2013, the FBI was exposed
conducting its own data mining on innocent Americans; the agency,
Bloomberg reported, retains that material for decades (even if no
wrongdoing is found). This is particularly ironic since Comey largely
launched his political career by aligning himself with Sen. Schumer
during the Bush Administration, making himself known as an opponent of a
controversial surveillance program.

3. From 2013-2014, the FBI authorized informants to break the law more
than 11,000 times, a steep increase from the years prior; these
allowances, which the FBI calls "otherwise illegal activity," is part of
a controversial program that has been accused of resulting in the
accidental death of many informants (amongst other unanticipated
consequences).

4. Comey made an embarrassing gaffe during a speech at the Holocaust
Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. in 2015, when he suggested Poland
was an "accomplice" to Nazi Germany during the Holocaust. The comments
angered America's allies in Poland, whose foreign ministry summoned the
U.S. ambassador for reprimanding. The ambassador, Stephen Mull, later
apologized on Comey's behalf.

5. When the FBI demanded Apple create a "backdoor" that would allow law
enforcement agencies to unlock the cell phones of various suspects, the
company refused, sparking a battle between the feds and America's
biggest tech company. What makes this incident indicative of Comey's
questionable management of the agency is that a) The FBI jumped the gun,
as they were indeed ultimately able to crack the San Bernardino
terrorist's phone, and b) Almost every other major national security
figure sided with Apple (from former CIA Director General Petraeus to
former CIA Director James Woolsey to former director of the NSA, General
Michael Hayden), warning that such a "crack" would inevitably wind up in
the wrong hands.

6. In 2015, the FBI conducted a controversial raid on a Texas political
meeting, finger printing, photographing, and seizing phones from
attendees (some in the group believe in restoring Texas as an
independent constitutional republic).

7. During its investigation into Hillary Clinton's mishandling of
classified material, the FBI made an unusual deal in which Clinton aides
were both given immunity and allowed to destroy their laptops.

8. Before Comey's tenure, the FBI came under attack for not taking
seriously enough the threat from terror suspects they interviewed. The
FBI interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev but let him go; Russia sent the Obama
Administration a second warning, but the FBI opted against investigating
him again. Earlier, the FBI had possession of emails sent by Nidal Hasan
saying he wanted to kill his fellow soldiers to protect the Taliban --
but didn't intervene, leading many critics to argue the tragedy that
resulted in the death of 31 Americans at Fort Hood could have been
prevented. After Comey took over, the sae unfortunate trend continued.
The father of the radical Islamist who detonated a backpack bomb in New
York City in 2016 alerted the FBI to his son's radicalization. The FBI,
however, cleared Ahmad Khan Rahami after a brief interview.

9. The FBI also investigated the terrorist who killed 49 people and
wounded 53 more at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Fla. Despite a more
than 10-month investigation of Omar Mateen -- during which Mateen
admitting lying to agents -- the FBI opted against pressing further and
closed its case.

10. CBS recently reported that when two terrorists sought to kill
Americans attending the "Draw Muhammad" event in Garland, Texas, the FBI
not only had an understanding an attack was coming, but actually had an
undercover agent traveling with the Islamists, Elton Simpson and Nadir
Soofi. The FBI has refused to comment on why the agent on the scene did
not intervene during the attack.

I'm snipping because I don't know that.
I'm sharing so you will:


Here are 10 of Comey's biggest embarrassments at the FBI:

1. After Dylann Roof killed nine South Carolina parishioners in cold
blood, James Comey admitted that an error in their background check
system allowed Roof to legally buy his gun. "We are all sick this
happened," Comey said of the massive screw-up.

2. Shortly after the NSA scandal exploded in 2013, the FBI was exposed
conducting its own data mining on innocent Americans; the agency,
Bloomberg reported, retains that material for decades (even if no
wrongdoing is found). This is particularly ironic since Comey largely
launched his political career by aligning himself with Sen. Schumer
during the Bush Administration, making himself known as an opponent of a
controversial surveillance program.

3. From 2013-2014, the FBI authorized informants to break the law more
than 11,000 times, a steep increase from the years prior; these
allowances, which the FBI calls "otherwise illegal activity," is part of
a controversial program that has been accused of resulting in the
accidental death of many informants (amongst other unanticipated
consequences).

4. Comey made an embarrassing gaffe during a speech at the Holocaust
Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. in 2015, when he suggested Poland
was an "accomplice" to Nazi Germany during the Holocaust. The comments
angered America's allies in Poland, whose foreign ministry summoned the
U.S. ambassador for reprimanding. The ambassador, Stephen Mull, later
apologized on Comey's behalf.

5. When the FBI demanded Apple create a "backdoor" that would allow law
enforcement agencies to unlock the cell phones of various suspects, the
company refused, sparking a battle between the feds and America's
biggest tech company. What makes this incident indicative of Comey's
questionable management of the agency is that a) The FBI jumped the gun,
as they were indeed ultimately able to crack the San Bernardino
terrorist's phone, and b) Almost every other major national security
figure sided with Apple (from former CIA Director General Petraeus to
former CIA Director James Woolsey to former director of the NSA, General
Michael Hayden), warning that such a "crack" would inevitably wind up in
the wrong hands.

6. In 2015, the FBI conducted a controversial raid on a Texas political
meeting, finger printing, photographing, and seizing phones from
attendees (some in the group believe in restoring Texas as an
independent constitutional republic).

7. During its investigation into Hillary Clinton's mishandling of
classified material, the FBI made an unusual deal in which Clinton aides
were both given immunity and allowed to destroy their laptops.

8. Before Comey's tenure, the FBI came under attack for not taking
seriously enough the threat from terror suspects they interviewed. The
FBI interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev but let him go; Russia sent the Obama
Administration a second warning, but the FBI opted against investigating
him again. Earlier, the FBI had possession of emails sent by Nidal Hasan
saying he wanted to kill his fellow soldiers to protect the Taliban --
but didn't intervene, leading many critics to argue the tragedy that
resulted in the death of 31 Americans at Fort Hood could have been
prevented. After Comey took over, the sae unfortunate trend continued.
The father of the radical Islamist who detonated a backpack bomb in New
York City in 2016 alerted the FBI to his son's radicalization. The FBI,
however, cleared Ahmad Khan Rahami after a brief interview.

9. The FBI also investigated the terrorist who killed 49 people and
wounded 53 more at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Fla. Despite a more
than 10-month investigation of Omar Mateen -- during which Mateen
admitting lying to agents -- the FBI opted against pressing further and
closed its case.

10. CBS recently reported that when two terrorists sought to kill
Americans attending the "Draw Muhammad" event in Garland, Texas, the FBI
not only had an understanding an attack was coming, but actually had an
undercover agent traveling with the Islamists, Elton Simpson and Nadir
Soofi. The FBI has refused to comment on why the agent on the scene did
not intervene during the attack.

Dropping the Hammer on Comey... Brilliant!
Good copy and paste; however, you should cite the source. I'm
snipping because I don't know that.
Another point: good expository writing should avoid what are called
"loaded terms" such as: "James Comey is a poisonous snake of the
highest order…" Any herpetologist could easily refute that statement
because Comey simply isn't a snake.
Yes, I know: it's called a metaphor and salting an essay with a few of
these is acceptable; however, the essay drags on and on with these
"horrible, evil and corrupt powers infesting our government..." etc,
etc, and so forth. My thought is to use the metaphors sparingly so
that they have greater effect; if the author fries us in the first
paragraph, we just get numb to them.
That paper is far from "brilliant" by any standard; it wouldn't even
be a very good high-school essay, at least not for an honors class in
a quality school. Give us a break.

The author obviously graduated from a Liberal school of journalism. I
had to read it twice to make sure it wasnt written by your typical
Liberal
