Comey is a hero in his own mind. He's been spinning noble tales about himself for at least 10 years

One thing I will always remember about Comey is this story from 2007, when he told the tale of how he rushed to John Ashcroft's hospital bed and protected him from Andrew Card...

His testimony describes the night that the Bush's NSA warrantless eavesdropping program was set to expire, as then AG Ashcroft lay in a hospital Intensive Care Unit with a critical case of pancreatitis. Comey, designated as Acting AG during the AG's illness, had refused the White House demands to certify the NSA program as "legal", as was needed for it to continue. The White House was said to have been furious about it, so Dubya, reportedly, personally called Ashcroft's wife to inform her that his own legal adviser Alberto Gonzalez (who was not yet AG) and Chief of Staff Andy Card, were on their way over to the hospital to have the ailing AG personally sign off on the program.

He describes the ensuing late-night chain of events --- from speeding in his redirected limosine, to an ICU confrontation and an astounding "moment of clarity" from the ailing AG, to a midnight White House showdown over all of this. I'd describe the testimony as "must watch" if you've never seen it, and a great refresher for those of us who saw it at the time. It offers an instructive moment about where nomination hearings for Comey could go if, in fact, he is nominated to replace Robert Mueller as FBI Director. Along with Comey, Mueller performed as one of the "good guys", at least in this particular moment of history.


Maybe it happened exactly this way. Maybe Comey stood up to Bush and all of his cronies. This story has been repeated and repeated as if it was the gospel truth since then, and appears in nearly all accounts of Comey's career.

The thing is though, this story, as far as I know, only comes from Comey. No one else has ever described the events of that night. And so, we are left with Comey's heroic tale of standing athwart warrantless eavesdropping, rescuing his ailing superior in the hospital from political pressure. Comey, the hero. He likes to tell these aw shucks tales about how great and patriotic and moral and ethical he is.

BUT COMEY FUCKED HILLARY OVER ROYALLY. Against his OWN guidelines. No amount of painting himself the grand hero/martyr will erase that.

To censor some topics out of fear it will be used in a nefarious way by republicans is absurd.

..11 days before the election to deliver the drummed up & false "breaking news", as he did.

That reason was successful in its desired outcome on Nov 8th, 2016.

Comey should be charged with violating his own FBI code of ethics, in order to throw the election of the 2016 US President.

What's that called again, Mr Comey?

associated illegal activities is one issue, and inappropriately disobeying the AG's orders not to release a letter 11 days before a National Election, and probably a violation of the Hatch Act is something else.

They are mutually exclusive events, and there is NO disconnect in being supportive of one, and not the other.

Unfortunately, some in our illustrious press try to present that view as "hypocritical", which only demonstrates why much of the press lacks critical thinking

36. I have no problem

with you thinking that. However, I do believe it is important to stick to facts, rather than falsehoods.

For example, Mr. Comey did not "step in front of cameras" to deliver "false breaking news" eleven days before the election. He did send a letter to the members of the congressional committee that he had previously testified before, and had stated the investigation was closed. A republican member of the committee "leaked" the letter to the media ten minutes after it was sent. Mr. Comey did not stand (or sit) before any camera to discuss this, until his book tour began.

Thus, I would suggest that saying he "spoke to the world" is incorrect.

Per "urgency" : the Department of Justice had signed off on the warrant that the FBI team investigating the e-mails found upon the computer of the husband of a Clinton aide had brought -- first to Mr. Comey, then to the DoJ heads. Had the DoJ prosecutors -- and leaders -- not recognized its significance, they would not have immediately signed it, and taken it to a judge.

Facts matter.

38. In the summer,

Mr. Comey did indeed speak to the public. He did not speak to the public about re-opening the case eleven days before the election. This is why, were you to take a moment and try, you will find you cannot find a single source documenting his speaking publicly in the eleven days prior to the election.

There is a pattern to be found in your comments here. You state several things that are simply wrong, having zero basis in fact. He did not step in front of the cameras on this. Nor, as my original response noted, is there any reality to your statement that he should be charged with violating the FBI code of ethics by sending the letter to committee members.

I do recognize that, even with a firm grasp of the facts, you and others may well dislike Mr. Comey, and even attribute the outcome of the 2016 election to his actions. However, you do not have that firm grasp of actual facts, as illustrated by your comments. Please consider taking the time to learn what actually took place. And why it happened.

That was the effect of his public on air statement.

He couldn't have given a greater validation to the year long smear campaign of reimaging Hillary Clinton.
She is nothing like the persona they created.

Comey delivered.

is that the AG did not order Mr. Comey to NOT release the letter to Congress. She did suggest that he not release it. When he made clear that he was going to, the DoJ assisted in preparing it, along with the team at the FBI that was involved in the investigation.

8. I suspect that the Bush era story was real

The reason is that many others are cast in a bad light, but no one has disputed it.

In addition, it shares certain themes with the Clinton actions. He seems to be a rigid rule follower who is very concerned with his own honor. In both cases, he does not speak of the over arching consequences of his sction.

His explanation that he was concerned that some email from the very early Clinton SoS days, made on her blackberry could change the evaluation to close the case. If that happened after the election, which he assumed she would win, his decision not to say something after he cleared her could be questioned.

Not to mention, imagine the impact on the election if he said nothing and others leaked it the day before the election?

Ironically, he now will be seen by a huge percent of the country as having given the election to Trump.

Except when it comes to his own rules about how to behave in the months before an election.

the accusations against Clinton have always been bullshit, and Comey knew that too. What, was he going to find some email that was ex post facto marked "sensitive"? Whoop di doo, especially when the alternative is a mobbed up Russian asset/cretin.

And blabbing his heart out on every cable channel in town just about guarantees that he'll never be called as a witness in an impeachment proceeding as everything he's babbling can be used against him, so what lawyer would n't find his testimony worthless.

Besides, these are mostly from accounts from those who worked with him, much respect for Comey among his colleagues. That's a reasonable measure of a man.

55. Mueller (then Director of FBI) has corroborated the story

Mueller (then Director of FBI) has corroborated the story (as well as threatening to resign along with Comey when it happened), as did Ashcroft's wife. And the DOJ's Office of Legal Counsel, Patrick Goldsmith.

I really don't see any self-styled heroism on his part. In fact, the only use of that word comes from various Fox entertainment news channels, its viewers... and you.

59. I believe you are right

Except for one incident he would have been a hero in my book. And that one incident: what a doozy! It alone did cost Hillary the election. No other incident had an impact of this magnitude.

63. he's welcome to do all the damage to Orange Foolius that he wants to

I'm not going to stop him. I was just commenting on what a sanctimonious, self-promoting, and self-righteous hero he is in his own mind, and that he has been that way for years.


It's no wonder he is a Republican

64. I don't think that he's a bad guy, but he did make bad decisions.
