What Comey Deserved

email Email

It’s easy to argue that James Comey deserved to be fired, but the FBI Director didn’t deserve to be terminated in the clumsy, abrupt way that he was. General Michael Flynn, accused of far more flagrant misdeeds, got to resign his post as National Security Advisor, but the President never requested Comey’s resignation, or even informed him that his termination was imminent.

Moreover, there’s no logic or credibility to official claims that the President had to dismiss the director immediately due to his inappropriately harsh treatment of Hillary and her e-mails some ten months ago—treatment candidate Trump applauded at the time. Comey could have departed with a dignified Rose Garden ceremony that simultaneously introduced his worthy replacement. As it was, the awful implementation of the President’s fateful decision only harmed his presidency’s worthy goals and underlined the need for upgrades in the White House staff to give Trump the savvy, professional help that HE deserves.

    Stop with the ridiculous sophistry. You Never Trumper's STILL have no clue why he's President.

    His firing of Comey is exactly what was needed, how it should have been done and the only criticism is that it should have been done sooner.

    Comey earned far more derision than has thus far come his way. He is an egotistical megalomaniac, out for himself and no one else. His level of self importance is embarrassing.

    He should have been summarily fired as he was and ridiculed to no end as an object lesson to the swamp that business as usual will not be TOLERATED!

      I agree!! It's time we realize what a lying, self aggrandizing, man he is. His announcement that Killery didn't show intent is stupid. She's an attorney, she know the oaths she took, she and her husband both lied to Congress and Comey said she didn't show intent???? Then he reopened the hearings flip flopping and irritating the libs. Since then he's exposed his over reaching from FBI investigator to judge and jury. Very inappropriate. Stop giving the left any air time!! It just keeps the conversation going!! Let Trump handle it. The demos. are going to whine no matter what he does. They'd criticize Christ if He came again!! Talk about things that really matter like lower taxes, improving Obummercare, N. Korea, securing our boarder that the libs. ignored. Good 4 Trump that he's opened a task force to control gangs in America. Talk about this, not whatever irritates the left.

    Michael: I would not have handled this matter in the same way Trump did, but he is the president. What he did may have appeared clumsy, even spiteful but he has a country to run. Comey didn't resolve anything concerning Hillary or the supposed Russian hacking of the election. All he did was muddy the waters by his un-needed press conferences.
    I think one thing you might discuss with your wife, while reclining on her couch is how Trump continues to get under your skin. I think part of your revulsion to him has to do with the fact that you avoid confrontation and he revels in it.

    The way it was handled suggests something personal. I can only speculate. I'm not going to second guess how a president handles his personnel decisions. I have enough experience with hiring and firing to know it can be really complicated at times.

    I'm a little disappointed we didn't get the "Your Fired" MEME. Missed opportunity. If your going to get the bad press you might as well have some fun. 😉

      So true! Comey got what he deserved. Never cleared up anything, over stepped his authority, split the staff at the FBI, and who knows what else?? Anyone who says Killery didn't show intent is blind, deaf and dumb. Glad he's gone. We need a better non partisan leader at the FBI.

    Well stated Brad, Barb and Chuck.

    I hate to sound like a conspiracy theorist, but..
    June, Bill Clinton secret meeting with Loretta Lynch
    July, Comey goes before congress, Hillary's bathroom server with top secrets.
    August, Comey goes before congress, Tony Weiner's laptop.
    …..Obama knows Hillary can't run for Pres from jail, what is he going to have Comey do?
    Not prosecute Hillary, but make her lose.
