James Comey to Trump: You Undermine the Criminal FBI by Exposing our Crimes!

Written by Joe Scudder

Somehow, in the mind of James Comey, uncritical faith in the FBI is more important to the country than the Presidency!

I’ve written this before but James Comey makes me do it again: The FBI is not mentioned in the Constitution. The nation, as founded, doesn’t need it. It is not an essential department of the Federal government. The office of the President of the United States, on the other hand, is essential to our nation as defined by the Constitution.

Donald Trump is outraged about what might have been done to him as a candidate by the FBI.

Fox News reports, “‘SPYGATE’: Trump blasts ‘Criminal Deep State’ amid reports of FBI informant spying on campaign.

President Trump blasted the “Criminal Deep State” early Wednesday, suggesting things have “turned around” in “SPYGATE,” following revelations of a reported FBI informant snooping on the Trump campaign.

“Look how things have turned around on the Criminal Deep State. They go after Phony Collusion with Russia, a made up Scam, and end up getting caught in a major SPY scandal the likes of which this country may never have seen before! What goes around, comes around!” Trump tweeted […].

Minutes later, the president added: “SPYGATE could be one of the biggest political scandals in history!”

[…]

Trump then went on to quote former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who discussed the issue of an FBI informant Tuesday during ABC’s “The View.”

“’Trump should be happy that the FBI was SPYING on his campaign’ No, James Clapper, I am not happy. Spying on a campaign would be illegal, and a scandal to boot!” Trump tweeted.

James Comey responded. Mediaite reports, “Comey Rips Trump’s ‘Attacks’ on the FBI: ‘How Will Republicans Explain This to Their Grandchildren?’

Former FBI Director James Comey came to the agency’s defense this morning as President Trump continues to attack it over the informant used during the election.

Republicans in Congress have expressed their agreement with the President on this issue, but now the man who led the FBI at the time is responding.

Mediaite quotes this tweet:

James Comey has been caught lying. Nothing Trump has said about this issue has yet been proven a lie. If the FBI is allowed to continue to be fed our taxes while it undermines our election then (and only then) Republicans should be ashamed of themselves.
