James Comey’s primetime testimony before Congress has come and gone, and boy was it a show.
It was supposed to bolster his claim to propriety and forthrightness.
Instead he showed himself as nothing more than a double-speaking political operator who happened also to be in charge of the world’s most powerful police force.
During his answers to questions from senators, he admitted to leaking his notes on private conversations with President Trump in order to spur the selection of the special prosecutor.
This after he said in previous testimony that leaks are “always a problem.”
Not only does Comey now have no credibility, he’s quite possibly schizophrenic.
Here’s more from Newsmax…
Fired FBI director James Comey admitted Thursday he leaked his personal notes on his meetings with President Donald Trump to prompt the naming of a special prosecutor to lead the Russia probe.
He said he asked a friend at Columbia Law School to share his written recollection of those conversations with a reporter after Trump fired him on May 9.
“I didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons,” Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee. “But I asked him to, because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel” to conduct the investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible collusion with Russian meddling in the 2016 election, he said.
The New York Times published a report on the Comey memo on May 16, and the following day former FBI director Robert Mueller was named special counsel to take over the investigation.
