Comey's book could convict him

If Jimmy the Weasel Comey ever stands trial for his unconstitutional spying on a presidential candidate or his interference in the 2016 election, a key witness for prosecutors may be his own book. Published a little more than a year ago, the book reveals an FBI director who hated his boss.

Comey wrote, "I once again was having flashbacks to my earlier career as a prosecutor against the Mob. The silent circle of assent. The boss in complete control. The loyalty oaths. The us-versus-them worldview. The lying about all things, large and small, in service of some code of loyalty that put the organization above morality and above the truth."

This establishes motive.

But Comey's book made plain his loyalty was to Chairman Barack. Donald John Trump beat Hillary, Comey was devastated. He wrote of an exchange with Obama.

Obama said, “I picked you to be FBI director because of your integrity and your ability. I want you to know that nothing — nothing — has happened in the last year to change my view.”

Comey (on the verge of tears -- that's what he wrote) said, “Boy, were those words I needed to hear. . . . I’m just trying to do the right thing.”

Obama said, “I know. I know.”

That Star Warsian exchange and other writings about allowing Hillary to walk instead of prosecuting her for mishandling classified material could pose a different problem because Spygate was not his only act of criminality.

Rod Rosenstein recently said, "The clearest mistake was the director’s decision to hold a press conference about an open case, reveal his recommendation and discuss details about the investigation, without the consent of the prosecutors and the attorney general.

"Then, he chose to send a letter to the Congress on the eve of the election stating that one of the candidates was under criminal investigation, expecting it to be released immediately to the public."

Comey re-opened and closed the case late in the election campaign. In his book, he said it was because he knew she was going to win.

He wrote, “I have read she has felt anger toward me personally, and I'm sorry for that. I'm sorry I couldn't do a better job explaining to her and her supporters why I made the decisions I made.

“It is entirely possible that, because I was making decisions in an environment where Hillary Clinton was sure to be the next president, my concern about making her an illegitimate president by concealing the restarted investigation bore greater weight than it would have if the election appeared closer or if Donald Trump were ahead in the polls.”

His purpose was not justice but exoneration of the candidate he supported.

I trust that prosecutors will consider using his book against him. One problem for liars is keeping their story straight. His book will straighten him out.

By the way, I am convinced he is the Designated Indicted Co-Conspirator. Someone will take one for the team. Why not him?
