James Comey under pressure facing a subpoena he is resisting, now attacking
the Attorney General Matthew Whitaker; saying "He may not be the sharpest
knife in our drawer".


On Whitaker, Comey seemed to question the top law enforcement officer’s intelligence and experience for the job, but he also suggested that Whitaker understood the danger before him. “He may not be the sharpest knife in our drawer, but he can see his future and knows that if he acted in an extralegal way, he would go down in history for the wrong reasons,” Comey told WGBH. “I’m sure he doesn’t want that.”

www.newsweek.com...

First, is that a veiled threat? James Comey is just a private citizen, so it's not
like he is part of the FBI anymore. So just who's drawer is he talking about?

Second, that is such an odd thing to say.
I've heard "not the sharpest tool in the shed".
But never heard that saying "knife in the drawer".

Thirdly, dang Matthew Whitaker is smarter than Loretta Lynch,
he hasn't been seen meeting Trump on a plane tarmac, he isn't
calling for blood in the streets like Lynch did.
This is just some plain strange stuff here!

Maybe Comey is losing it? He also seemed to make a veiled inference
to Whitey Bulgar's death in prison saying people need to learn from it.

Odd statements....
And he still hasn't called for a second Special Counsel, I wonder why?
He's looking more and more like a deep state thug every day.

So much confusion and jealousy coming from these "unindicted" individuals lately.

Something has to bust open eventually 😎 as they continue to soil themselves.

Wonder if these are also a bit of Freudian slips.

Knife in the drawer ...
Death in Prison...

Such dark thoughts!

A more salient point from the link


Comey also reiterated his stance on appearing before Congress again, calling for his scheduled December 3 hearing to be open to the public and not held behind closed doors.

Comey, who publicly said he was no longer a member of the Republican Party, challenged GOP members as to why they have continued their strong allegiance to Trump despite the president’s actions in office. The former federal prosecutor was asked about a New York Times report that alleged Trump had ordered former White House counsel Don McGahn to prosecute Comey as well as ex-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“I am a little bit numb to the president’s threats and tweets because there is nothing there,” Comey said. “Then I stop myself, because it’s wrong for me or anybody else to become numb to the president of the United States announcing that a private citizen should be prosecuted."

Strange, I would have bet it the other way around.
Ask Steve Scalise and Rand Paul.

Yes, and he was in charge. Imagine what we don't hear.
I always say I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer but at least I am in the drawer.

Right?

Comey, well he was fired!

A better thing for him to say would be something about the trash bin,
and paper clips or something .....

You recall the Congressional baseball shooting, right?

Steve Scalise was targeted, attempted murder over
Obamacare. And Rand Paul was attacked there, and
then also in his front yard. A neighbor man broke his ribs
in a tackle, over politics ( neighbor is a democrat nutter )

Here's the story behind this. From 2 years ago...
www.usatoday.com...

According to FBI Director James Comey’s statement on Tuesday, former secretary of State Hillary Clinton could have been charged with violating several different code sections, and he detailed the evidence that supports bringing criminal charges.

Yet, Director Comey’s judgment was that “no reasonable prosecutor” would bring the case. I disagree. I believe myself to have been a reasonable prosecutor, and when the facts and evidence show a criminal violation has been committed, the individuals involved should not dictate whether the case is prosecuted.


Whitaker, who was a former US prosecutor, penned this rebuttal against Comey in USA Today 2 years ago, refuting Comey's statement that no prosecutor would bring a case against Hillary Clinton for her crimes. This is Comey seizing two opportunities...
1. A public lashing out against someone who criticized him when he was still relevant and had a degree of authority
2. Grab another few seconds in the fame spotlight.

Comey is a small, petty, shallow man who still can't come to grips with the fact that he fumbled his job description and was fired for cause.

Ah, well that make sense, yes he is lashing out.

Honestly, Comey's unwillingness to step away from
his role in the FBI is a bit scary.

Like a scorned woman till his death, I think he will
stalk Trump till the day he dies.

What was that expression....Trump called him
crazy or ?

It could just be me, however, I fail to see any-to-little relevence
between a congress inquiry, the comptences of the new overseer being questioned
and a tabloid story about a nut-case shooter

If targeting 'people in the public eye' is a problem for you
then i'm sure that you must've been equally as appalled
about Alison Parker being slain on live t.v whilst doing her job ?

No ?

That's sort of what he is. I think he believed we'd see a Clinton presidency and he'd be handsomely rewarded for his "service," and when we did not see that presidency, he was torn between serving his deep state overlords and trying to get some sort of "in" with the president... in reality, his deep state allies sacrificed him to the wolves and Trump wasn't interested in working with someone so incompetent, so he was canned. Bye-bye cushy taxpayer funded job, hello irrelevance.

Comey sees himself as being sharper/smarter than he really is. Poor guy is going to take it really hard when/if reality finally sets in.

Of course, Comey could have come out in the summer of '16
to kindly let us know, that Team Trump was under investigation for 'outside help'

Could've and shoudl've
Shame he was was gagged by the then president
"Government agencies should refrain from any comments that could weigh on the forthcoming election"

Or words to that effect (September/October '16)

Oh, you mean the example of a standing president ordering a political rival to be wiretapped using a manufactured foreign sourced dossier which the department knew was BS as the grounds for the warrant? Yes, Comey would have certainly kicked a hornet's nest had that info come to light that summer... and Trump would have won the election even easier in that scenario.

Your not defending the shooting, or are you?

Today, a Judge (federal judge?) ruled that Matthew Whitaker's appointment as Acting Attorney General is Constitutional.

I wonder how long it will take for the Anti-America terrorists in Mainstream Media to report this?
