Fuck James Comey!

Sorry, I just can't cheer this guy on one fucking bit.

He came out and helped tRump win the election by doing the thing that the FBI just doesn't do. He excoriated Hillary.

Now, he thinks he's some fucking hero because he goes out and trashes tRump with a book and TV interviews.

The only thing to be glad about is that it was his firing that got Mueller on the job.

So, yeah...fuck James Comey.

he doesn't like Rudy Giuliani, Dick Cheney, David Addington or Alberto Gonzales, but that he does like and respect Obama. So there's that, for what it's worth. And I do keep in mind the fact that the enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend, but on the other hand if he's the enemy of my enemy that's still useful.

He's not the least bit apologetic about what he did to Hillary. He didn't come out and say that tRump was under investigation, but he sure as hell did it to Hillary. He went against FBI policy and he knows it.

I don't care who he doesn't like.

The damage that's being done now to this country is as much fault his as it is tRump's.

3. It was just an observation; take it for what it's worth, if anything.

I don't think he's a hero. I do think he's interesting.

part to create the nightmare we are living now.

What, I'm supposed to tell someone whose life is being devastated by the current regime "Hey, at least Comey doesn't like Giuliani, but he likes Obama, so there is that"

How does that help? What difference does it make?

6. That's why I said "for what it's worth."

Maybe it isn't worth anything, but I thought it was interesting. YMMV.
