James Comey was fired from the FBI in disgrace.
He accomplished the rare feat of being hated by both Democrats and Republicans.
And now Attorney General William Barr just gave Comey the scare of a lifetime.
Over the last three years, few political actors have disgraced themselves as much as former FBI Director James Comey.
Serving under Barack Obama, Comey created a new legal standard to inappropriately absolve Hillary Clinton of obstruction of justice by transmitting classified government emails on a private server.
After new information came to light, Comey reopened the matter shortly before general election night in 2016.
Comey somehow managed to stay on as FBI Director when Donald Trump was sworn in, but was promptly fired after refusing to say publicly what he told Trump privately, that he was not under investigation.
After Comey’s firing, he hatched a revenge plot against Trump and intentionally leaked FBI documents in an attempt to embarrass the President while also sparking a special counsel investigation.
Comey’s inappropriate behavior was investigated by the Department of Justice, and Inspector General Michael Horowitz dropped a bombshell in Comey’s lap.
The report confirmed that Comey “set a dangerous precedent” by disseminating sensitive FBI materials to the New York Times through a friend who is a college professor.
Horowitz’s findings also concluded that Comey intentionally tried to “create public pressure for official action.”
Despite this withering report, Attorney General William Barr chose not to prosecute Comey, allowing the disgraced FBI director to breathe a sigh of relief.
However, Comey is not out of the woods yet.
Inspector General Horowitz hasn’t yet released his findings on the full extent of the convoluted coup to oust Trump by abusing FISA court warrants and spying on Trump associates.
The full report could land Comey and other deep state bad actors in serious trouble.
They were complicit in arguably the most despicable political conspiracy in the nation’s history.
Their plan was to overturn the results of the 2016 election, and there’s been almost no accountability from the liberal media.
Many of the worst players, including former CIA Director John Brennan and former interim FBI Director Andrew McCabe, are currently employed by left-wing networks.
Only liberals would allow alleged conspirators to spew anti-Trump propaganda on their networks.
Meanwhile, Comey is trying to rehabilitate himself with his self-serving book called “A Higher Loyalty,” which is laughably absurd.
Comey would still be serving under Trump if he hadn’t been fired for incompetence and duplicity.
And Horowitz’s report also pointed out that Comey himself stated how damaging FBI leaks were.
According to a memo, Comey told Trump that the FBI’s efficacy is hampered “if people run around telling the press what we do.”
Yet Comey and his higher loyalty did exactly that.
The report also noted that advisors close to Comey were “stunned” and “shocked” and expressed “disappointment” in response to what Comey did when he leaked information to the media.
Comey is currently taking a victory lap on social media because he wasn’t charged, but his celebration might be premature.
The full extent of his slipperiness is yet to be exposed.
