James Comey, idiot, still believes that Joe Biden should pardon Donald Trump

Former FBI Director James Comey visits Today FM's Matt Cooper Show

On January 5th, the Guardian published excerpts from former FBI Director James Comey’s new book, a book which no one asked for and no one wants. In the excerpts, Comey writes that President Joe Biden should pardon Donald Trump for all of the crimes Trump committed while in office. Most outlets were discussing the Comey excerpts on January 6th, the same day Trump sent his MAGA terrorist army to lay siege to the Capitol in a terrorist attack which left five people dead. The terrorist attack has led to dozens of arrests so far, and hundreds of open FBI investigations and cases, with hopefully more to come. The Capitol siege also led to Trump’s second impeachment, and what will be a wild Senate trial in the coming weeks.

You would think that after the events of the past eight days, Comey would come out and say “my bad, that was a terrible take on the situation.” He did not. Instead, he doubled-down.

Imagine after all of the fascism and terrorism and criminality of the past five years, you still believe that the smartest way to proceed is to leave all of the terrorists, criminals and fascists unpunished. I just… can’t. When we study history – and Comey claims to be a student of history – this is the moment to stand up and say that what has happened is unquestionably wrong, that it is unsupportable, and we don’t have to cover the F–k Your Feelings crowd in bubble wrap for the “good” of the nation. That’s not how any of this works. What’s best for the nation is to punish all of these people, especially Trump.

Comey’s former colleague Andrew McCabe rejects Comey’s rationale.

    Translation: Reduce my own role in this terrible chapter of history.

  2. Nina Simone says:

    Why do they keep giving this man airtime to spout his nonsense ? We don’t care ! I’m so so over him. It calls into question his allegiance. Who are you for Comey?

    Unity cannot come without accountability as AOC says. We can’t just move on. We owe it to ourselves.

  3. Seraphina says:

    I’m not sure what he has to gain with this. But as it’s been said, you can’t avoid accountability by screaming we have to heal. we will heal when all are held accountable – as they should be. No one is above the law and if they are, we have way bigger problems they we thought.

    • Sean says:

      James Comey does not want Donald Trump investigated because it could possibly lead to James Comey being investigated.

      1. During the 2016 election Comey made the decision to NOT tell the public Trump was under investigation by the FBI for his 2013 trip to Moscow. Butter emails. Why?

      2. In 2011, then FBI Director Robert Mueller identified a new breed of organized crime that was an intersection of mobsters, entrepreneurs and politicians. He called them”iron triangles”. He specified oligarch Semion Mogilevich as a central figure in this and possibly the most dangerous criminal on the planet right now. Mueller said Mogilevich would remain on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list until he was apprehended. Mogilevich has been laundering money through Trump properties since the 1980s. In 2015, then FBI Director James Comey quietly removed Mogilevich from the Ten Most Wanted list. Why?

      • Golly Gee says:

        He’s probably being blackmailed like many others who are defending Trump.

      • Seraphina says:

        When the gain is not apparent to average Joe, that means there is something more sinister behind the scenes.

      • Tiffany says:

        James Comey is a sexiest piece of crap who would make sure that any ambitious woman would be taken down a peg, even at the expense of this country.

        He went after Martha Stewart like she was Bernie Madoff but wasn’t and Bernie had nothing but time to continue his con.

      • Betsy says:

        Ughhhh. I didn’t think I could dislike James Comey more, but here I am, disliking him more.

  4. Persephone says:

    Seriously – why are we still talking to this guy???

  5. tx_mom says:

    Glad it’s not his responsibility!

  6. Corick says:

    So no one should suffer repreccussions, especially the traitorous 45? So the country can ” heal” ? No that’s not how things work. Republican in general have been getting away with things for too long, and 45 is the culmination of decades of kowtowing and sycophancy. From 45, his cabinet, his family, the enablers in the house and senate, along with every single individual put in a place of power needs to be held accountable for four years of fuckery. For acting against the benefit of the country.

    I’m not American so I don’t have a say. But Trump and his administration should be tried for crimes against humanity.

    Comey – go put on your blue suit and hide in the curtains.

    Don’t wanna be an American idiot

  10. Traveler says:

    I’ll admit to only reading the headline but came here to say NO f**king way!

  11. Teresa says:

    Hahahahabhahahahahahha….. Gasp….. Hahahhahhahahahaha. No.

  12. Mignionette says:

    Is it possible that Trump has dirt on all these guys and they are just playing both sides ?

  13. Leah says:

    I still blame him for what happened in 2016. He needs to take several seats because he’s not redeemable. You can’t play for first team, get fired, then try to jump on the second team after you lied through the side of your mouth for the first team. He wasn’t working for the people while he was at the FBI, he was working for Trump.

    There will be no healing until debts are settled and mistakes of the past are fixed. He needs to apologize to Hillary and to the people.

    • HoofRat says:

      He needs to apologize to the whole freaking world, then disappear into the depths of hell, whence (I’m just guessing here) he originally emerged.

  14. ClaireB says:

    I almost had respect for Comey when he stood up to Trump, although his own incitement of the But Her Emails crowd was clearly partisan since he did not disclose that Trump was also under investigation. But that’s all gone now. He must really have a lot of sympathy for this butthurt, white nationalist crowd to be spouting this nonsense, like a group of armed insurrectionists storming the Capitol while Congress was in session was a child’s temper tantrum. Their whining and crying might have been treated that way, but the crimes and violence need to have consequences or they will continue. The entitlement that Comey and the MAGAts feel is astonishing to me, even with the depth of entitlement they’ve shown before.

  15. Coco says:

    Can a book sell negative copies? Because that’s what I want to happen to this one (and to the publisher who decided to give Comey a further platform).

  16. Liz version 700 says:

    He has succeeded in uniting both parties into hating him. That takes talent champ.

  17. FF says:

    Every time I see that book title ‘A Higher Loyalty’, I remember John Malkovich’s “a higher patriotism” speech in Burn After Reading.

  18. MA says:

    He needs to go away. I hope history remembers him as one of Trump’s enablers.

  19. Snuffles says:

    I’ll admit that I’ve had my moments wondering if it was a good idea or not to bust Trump, his family and all of his cronies on all of the crimes they committed while in office.

    But after January 6th and seeing what going easy on them resulted in, I’m going to need EVERY 👏🏽 LAST 👏🏽 ONE 👏🏽 OF 👏🏽 THEM to to be prosecuted to the the FULLEST extent of the law. Top to bottom. From Trump himself to all of the MAGAt minions be summoned from the depths of hell.

    And I want it ALL to be publicized. Like make it a weekly series that airs across every channel that Americans are forced to watch with their eyes pried WIDE OPEN.

    And after they sort out everything that happened on January 6th and everyone involved has been caught, I want Biden, the FBI, Secret Service and CIA to do a lengthy press conference breaking down everything so we can see how close we came to losing democracy.

    He is awful.

    You have the correct and best headline for an article on this topic.

  22. megalon says:

    Ugh, his sanctimonious expression is just frozen. Trump is on you, Comey. Go away
