Director Comey out at FBI: What took so long?

While Pres. Donald Trump’s Tuesday firing of FBI Director James Comey (read Trump’s letter) was hailed by conservatives, the reliably liberal editors at AOL took a distinctly different approach, exhibited by the headline:

“Why did Trump fire FBI Director James Comey? Cover-up of Russia investigation suspected.”

Of course, the usual Never-Trumpers, still reeling in the wake of scandal plagued Hillary Clinton’s defeat, were ready to pile on, concocting their own conspiracy theories, all revolving around Trump’s “collusion with Russia” resulting in his 2016 presidential election victory.

Using the well-known magician’s maneuver of misdirection, U.S. Senators Chuck Schumer (D-NY); Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass); Hillary’s running-mate Tim Kaine, (D-VA); and John McCain (RINO-AZ) were more than ready to heave their partisan spew to the media.

Schumer promptly called for an independent investigator to take over the “Russia probe.” Warren echoed Schumer’s calls for a special prosecutor. Kaine, peering out from under the rock where Hillary found him, used a series of tweets, declaring Comey’s termination proved “how frightened the Admin is over Russia investigation,” claiming it was “part of a growing pattern by White House to cover-up the truth.”

Republicrat McCain, the still smarting failed presidential candidate who previously called Hillarya rock starhe could support, has done all he can to undermine Donald Trump since Trump won the GOP nomination. McCain and his family made it clear they were not voting for Trump, who won despite their embarrassing and rancorous display.

McCain, sounding no different than the Democrats he aligns with, said, “I have long called for a special congressional committee to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. The president’s decision to remove the FBI director only confirms the need and the urgency for such a committee.”

But wait! Chuck Schumer, Comey’s steadfast supporter today, on Nov. 2, 2016 — opinion swinging like a chimp in the rain forest — gave Comey a vote of no-confidence in response to his revelation that the FBI reopened its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.I do not have confidence in him any longer,” Schumer gravely stated. Liberal hypocrites switch their opinions so quickly, they must have chronic whiplash.

    Comey has been covering for the Clintons for decades and the Mainstream News Media ignore his long history of corruption.
    Comey defenders should all take a minute or two and simply Google Comey and the Clintons.
    http://www.cnn.com/2016/07/07/politics/who-is-james-comey-fbi-director-things-to-know/

    Comey defenders will see he was Special Counsel for Senate Whitewater Committee. In the Arkansas Whitewater scandal of the ‘70s & 80’s half of the mostly retired elderly Clinton investors lost all their money. Comey covered up for the Clintons. Interestingly though, the McDougals were Clinton-partners in the real estate deal. The McDougals took the fall and refused to testify against the Clintons.
    Even more interesting, Jim McDougal died in jail and his wife Susan was pardoned by then-President Bill Clinton.

    Researchers will also see Comey was deeply involved in 2002 as a Federal Prosecutor investigating the Marc Rich Presidential Pardon by Bill Clinton (arranged by Eric Holder) that pardoned billionaire financier Marc Rich who had fled the US to avoid prosecution for massive currency fraud. Surprisingly to many, no charges were brought by Comey.
    Look all this up and wonder why these long-time connections between Comey and the Clintons are not mentioned by so-called Mainstream News Media.

    Now take special notice of how Comey prosecuted and jailed Martha Stewart for lying to the FBI only one time.

    Obviously, Comey has been bought and paid for by the Clintons for decades. But why are the Media covering him? If a Conservative had such an obvious history the Media would never let us forget.

      William Heuisler,
      Thanks for this excellent information and memory jogging. You’re a terrific researcher. I learn a lot from your comments.

  2. Frankly Speaking says:

    It’s a given that old John McCain will side with the Dems against Trump. The only reason we haven’t heard the same garbage from Jeff the Flake is he is becoming more circumspect as he worries about his reelection.

  3. Rambling Rose says:

    Now that Obama appointee James Comey is out of the spotlight, he can take a rest from Botox injections in his forehead and the Mitt Romney black hair and brow dye. His eye bags could use a nip and a tuck, though. He could pack them for a weekend trip.

    FBI Director Comey showed himself to be untrustworthy. He forgot he wan’t still working for Obama. Removing him was an excellent move by Pres. Trump. I’d like to see him replaced by Trey Gowdy, but we can’t afford to lose him in the U.S. House of Representatives where he does a stellar job. Watch some of his interrogations on YouTube if you want to see a brilliant mind in action.

  5. Conservative Since Birth says:

    McCain was on TV this morning looking anxious and sounding just like Schumer. He questioned the “timing” of the firing of Comey and of course, we need a committee to investigate the Russians. Shortly thereafter, Fox showed a tweet from our other senator, Libertarian/RINO Flake saying the same thing. Then Meghan McCain, on the morning Fox show said pretty much the same thing after she told the viewers how much she hates Comey.

    What does John McCain do other than jump on anything Trump does to undermine him. He’s like a comic book character. Nobody takes him seriously – just the leftwing media when they need him to sabotage Trump.

    I’m troubled that the lightweight losing senator from New Hampshire, Kelly Ayotte, was mentioned on Fox as a possible replacement for Comey. She’s part of the McCain-Graham inner circle.

    A big thanks to SRAZ and also to commenter William Heuisler for providing us with excellent information.

    Once again we see John McCain doing what he does best.
    Who knew that one could major in “troublemaking” at the US Naval Academy?

    These soul-less demons in the swamp can’t even figure out who they love and who they hate on any given day.

    Meanwhile, the transgressions and lawlessness of Barack Hussein Obama and the Clintons continues to be protected by the swamp dwellers.

    Closer to home, the families who have lost loved-ones to the PHX serial killer, now in custody, are asking why, why did it take so long?
    A composite sketch of the suspect was a nearly perfect match to the guy.
    Sad, but easy answer: It took so long because it was the PPD’s case to solve.

    The PPD is best known for sending their newly pensioned folk out to populate and spread their mediocrity into State government and other local agencies. Most of them have jobs already lined up and just waiting for them. Seat warmers.

    McCain & Flake = against

    • Matt DeGennaro says:

      Thanks for this list from The Hill, as well as the previous article from the Washington Examiner. Both are excellent.
      AZ’s Disappointing Senate Duo never fail to disappoint.

      I wonder how is is that Lindsey Graham extracted his nose out of McCain’s backside long enough to come up with an independent opinion.

  9. Kathy says:

    A thought – McCain sent a staffer to pick up the FAKE “Russina pee-dossier” – that the FBI used to start an investigation, knowing something was a miss – will McCain be investigated?? Did he help the Clinton machine pay for this FAKE dossier? What does the FBI have on McCain and with Comey out will McCain be held accountable?? McCain is suspicious, has been for years.

  10. Saguaro Sam says:

    You may recall that Trump often refers to President Andrew Jackson.

    Jackson was the only president to have previously fought in two wars—-the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812.

    During the War of 1812, Jackson’s raggle taggle troops consisted mostly of volunteers who were not soldiers by any stretch of the imagination—he even had freed slaves among his troops.

    Yet, he and his men went up against the very well equipped and well outfitted British Army again and again.

    He understood the importance of letting the enemy come to him and not using ammunition until the time was right.

    Read up on the battle of New Orleans.
