White House press secretary, and my personal hero, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said that Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey will be recalled as “one of the president’s greatest achievements.”. That was one of many zingers she delivered, sending the liberal press into a total tizzy.
This comes after news is coming out of about Comey’s upcoming bombshell interview with ABC news. He is hawking his new book, A Higher Loyalty.
Trump has responded to the leaked interview details by calling Comey an “untruthful slime ball”.
Sanders further went to bat for the president, saying, “You guys spend hours upon hours every single day praising Jim Comey, propping him up, giving him the biggest platform. We shouldn’t be praising him. We should be putting him down. We should be taking him off of air instead of giving him minute after minute.”
Sanders said that Comey was motivated by making a buck. She rightly pointed out that “The guy is known to be a liar and leaker”.
She went on to lay out specifics of Comey’s lies.
Sanders pointed out Comey’s no time excuse for a congressional interview is bogus. Congress has requested that Comey testify many times. He has claimed he cannot do that. Yet, she notes, he has found the time to sit down for a five-hour interview with George Stephanopoulos.
Sanders also said that Comey has lied about the reason for reopening the Hillary Clinton investigation late in the 2016 election season. He initially said the investigation was re-opened for cause, but now say it was because of poll numbers. He did not think she would lose the election and did not want to hamper her presidency with claims of illegitimacy. Comey…always looking out for crooked Hillary.
She also said that Comey said that Trump ordered him to stop investigating Michael Flynn. This is in direct contradiction to his sworn testimony saying no one told him to stop any investigation.
Sanders concluded, “Comey’s higher loyalty, is pretty clear – that it’s only to himself.’ BAM!
Trump himself went no easier on Comey. He stated in this EPIC tweet:
“James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR. Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired. He leaked CLASSIFIED information for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH. He is weak and…untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI. His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst ‘botch jobs’ of history. It was my great honor to fire James Comey!”
That is some classic, no holds barred, Donald Trump.
Kellyanne Conway also went on the offense. “We find that Mr. Comey has a revisionist view of history and seems like a disgruntled ex-employee,” said Conway. “After all, he was fired. It’s not as if he came to the conclusions that are in his book while he was on the job as FBI director, in the presence, in the company of the president and said, ‘You know, I just must resign. I can’t deal with this anymore. I must resign’.”
Comey did not do that because he is an opportunist, liar, and without a shred of integrity.
All the revelations about the FBI’s bias and botched investigations over the past year show what a poor leader Comey was and how poorly he ran the department.
Sanders is right…getting rid of Comey might well go down as one of the best decisions of Trump’s presidency.
