Oh that one would hear me! behold, my desire is, that the Almighty would answer me, and that mine adversary had written a book.
Job 31: 35
The buffoonish James Comey, former FBI Director, has written a book, A Higher Loyalty, and has given a lengthy five hour interview to former Clinton henchman George Stephanopoulos. One of the features about political hit books is that they tend to tell a lot more about the author than the author ever intended. In the interview and in his book, Comey stands revealed as a very weak man, quite willing to play ball with the Clinton political machine in order to protect his future, assuming that Clinton got elected, which Comey viewed as a dead bang certainty. (I have long thought that God gets endless mirth from the human trait to assume that we can guess, on important matters, even the short term future with any degree of confidence.) Go here to read a transcript of that marathon interview.
In the interview Comey states that Donald Trump is morally unfit to be President:
A person who sees moral equivalence in Charlottesville, who talks about and treats women like they’re pieces of meat, who lies constantly about matters big and small and insists the American people believe it, that person’s not fit to be president of the United States, on moral grounds.
Let’s unpack that shall we? First, Trump did not draw a moral equivalence in the Charlottesville deadly melodrama, in which both the extreme right and the extreme left were engaging in violent street political theater, but let us say that he had, is that worse than Clinton during the campaign calling around 25% of the American people “deplorables”, completely beyond the pale? In regard to Trump treating women like pieces of meat, Trump is a pig when it comes to women. In that he is reminiscent of Bill Clinton, except that Trump, unlike Clinton, has not been credibly accused of rape. Mrs. Clinton of course has spent much of her time in public life defending her swinish husband from “bimbo eruptions” and assassinating the characters of the women who have had the temerity to tell the truth about their often forced interactions with her mate. In regard to lies, yep Trump lies a lot, as opposed to Clinton who has been completely truthful about everything, from her brilliant success as a commodities trader, to her sterling performance in Whitewater, to the machinations with foreign powers of the Clinton Foundation, to her statements to the FBI about her e-mails. Why, if you view her in a certain light, Clinton is a paragon of truthfulness, the female reincarnation of George Washington! (Sarcasm off.)
Comey’s wife and kids were fanatical supporters of the Clinton public thief, and that clearly had an impact on Comey. His last-minute investigation in October 2016 into the e-mails on the hard-drive of Anthony Weiner’s spouse was to help Clinton long-term, as he states in his book:
“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 all polls.”
That is an entirely damning statement. Such concerns were not part of his job, yet he allowed partisan concerns to guide every step of how he conducted the investigation into Clinton’s emails. Comey, when everything is boiled down, was basically a corrupt cop who wanted above everything else to keep his powerful job. He bet on the wrong horse politically and now, suddenly, moral considerations he was deaf and blind to when Clinton was involved, become the center of his universe in regard to Trump. Comey is six foot eight. J. Edgar Hoover was five foot seven. Comey in comparison to Hoover couldn’t reach the top of his predecessor’s shoes.
