I don't get the point of this story, if there even is a story. More hubbub generated by a media who likes to distill its conclusions from tweets.

So...you did get the point?

Let's get clear on something here. Let's assume for a moment that Cowardly Curtain-Hiding Comey actually experienced paranoia and was afraid for his job.

Being afraid for your job because your kids might go hungry is one thing, being afraid for your job because of your ego and power-tripping to the detriment of abandoning your constitutional oath is quite another.

Does anyone--at this point--actually think Comey was a competent and trustworthy FBI Director?


JAMES COMEY'S NET WORTH ENSURES FIRED FBI DIRECTOR WON'T REALLY MISS HIS GOVERNMENT SALARY


Back when Obama nominated Comey for the job in 2013, the former prosecutor reported his net worth in Senate documents during the confirmation process. His net worth came in at $11 million, a figure that likely rose almost immediately considering he was due a $3 million profit-sharing payout from his former employer, the hedge fund Bridgewater Associates, should he be confirmed to the post, CNN reported at the time. He worked as the firm's general counsel from 2010 through early 2013 and earned some $6 million in compensation his final full year with the company, according to Open Secrets.

Comey likely took a serious pay cut during his time with the FBI. According to U.S. Office of Personnel Management documents, the FBI paid Comey a salary of $185,000 per year. That's still some $130,000 more than the median U.S. household income, but a pay cut nonetheless.

Comey apparently lost his job, in part, because of his leadership. "Over the past year... the FBI's reputation and credibility have suffered substantial damage, and it has affected the entire Department of Justice," wrote Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in a memo recommending the director be fired.

Rosenstein also cited how Comey handled the investigation into Clinton's use of a personal email sever during her tenure as secretary of state. Clinton was cleared once well before the general election and again two days before the vote.

"I cannot defend the directors handling of the conclusion of the investigation of Secretary Clinton’s emails, and I do not understand his refusal to accept the nearly universal judgment that he was mistaken," Rosenstein wrote.

Nope. That was just the liberal media saying that he said what he said but really he was just saying what they said that he said when he said it and now they're saying that he said it but really, no.

It's so simple!



This is why we really need to understand what the definition of "is," is. For clarity.

What "them" are you talking about?

"Them" are you neighbors.
"Them" are your co-workers.
"Them" are members of your family.

It seems you only want EVERYONE to find important the issues you find important or to simply kow-tow to your way of thinking and the world doesn't work like that.

Except with actual recordings we might even hear the insistence with with he made his requests to let the matter go.

No that tweet said nothing and trump never felt the need to clarify it.

He said Comey better hope there are no tapes... Not sure where he said or implied he could prove it if Comey lied... can you post that?



originally posted by: DJW001
What part of the word "implied" are you having trouble with?


That would suggest that Comey in Trump's view was not being truthful and Trump said he better hope there isn't any tapes. This also can suggest that Trump doesn't know either if there are tapes or not.

Yes. His fear was that if he said no way Jose he would get fired. So instead he simply implied it. To be polite.
And got fired anyway.

Surely you don't think he was scared trump would beat him up or something. Lol
No you don't....do you?

So Comey's fear, after basically rewriting the rules and definition of culpability regarding Hilary clinton's unauthorised and highly irregular use of an email server that was not compliant with the very basic standards of internet security, let alone the security required for the standards of a secretary of state for the US, was that he would get fired?

I imagine the concept of fidelity is alien to such a character, right?

So you agree Comey was cowardly and weak?

Then what's the big deal about him being fired? Who wants someone like that as director of the FBI?

Makes one wonder why he was put there in the first place.

That would be the "them" certain members refer to. It matters not who "them" is, so long as "them" are "them" and not "us" they're automatically bad people.

That's why we get the same handful of people showing up in every political thread calling for banning, or outright jailing, any media they don't approve of, as well as putting "them" in "camps" where "they" can be contained. Who might be caught up in the "them" label isn't as important to those members as the label itself is.

Because "them" isn't "us."

Cowardly is lying at every turn.
Weak is blaming your every mistake on someone else.

Don't try to match character here. Trump is way out of his league.
Maybe he can take on Giuseppe Giovanni over there in queens and get an even character match but not with Comey.
