Its billing was “must see” but its reality was seeing does not equate to belief.
I could have made a long, textual post no one would care to read, but no one could indict Comey’s credibility better than he did all by himself. Comey goes to the Senate.
There was an impeachment on Thursday in the Senate…
an impeachment of Comey’s character.
The guy displays all that is wrong with our government. He plotted by political motives all the way along, and then sought to manipulate the entire process for his self-relevant gain.
The best part is that he was fired but even that didn’t temper his manipulative scheme or enthusiasm for relevancy. He is the consummate disgruntled employee now. For Comey, going postal means getting up in the middle of the night to plot leaking information to try to take down a sitting president.
Leakers everywhere must be toasting Jim’s motivation, creativity and persistence.
Comey, as we see in living color, is not the textbook example of a man of character but a compromised man of self-serving character, swimming in a sea of politicized government of Obama. Even his adept lies were not enough to mitigate his character flaws. Emotional yes.
Okay, I’ll mention just one statement:
“I was honestly concerned he might lie about the nature of our meeting, so I thought it important to document.” – Comey on his memo.
Note how he refers to his “honest” emotions and Trump’s deceitful nature. But what is the nature of a teed off government bureaucrat?
He claimed the reason he just had to leak was to get a special counsel to investigate. An investigation that would ‘hopefully’ put him — and his memos — smack in the middle of. An investigation where he could apply his vast, crisis-
creating chasing experience and talents, aided by a special counsel who was a long time friend. What could go wrong?
In a Twilight Zone episode, it might be described something like this:
“A man who sought to be the leading influencer of an investigation finds himself at the center of controversy in the investigation. Tables turn as he must now justify his own motives by trying to impugn the motives of everyone else. Stay tuned as best schemes sometimes do not work out just the way you
plotted planned them. …
I give you: ‘The Irony of a Government Bureaucrat’.”
