James Comey continues to make the turn. Hey, he might make a full circle before this drama is finishing playing out.
The former FBI director once was hailed by Donald Trump when Comey revealed he had more information to explore regarding Hillary Rodham Clinton’s use — or misuse — of her personal email account while she was secretary of state.
Eleven days before the 2016 presidential election, Comey tossed the outcome into serious confusion mode with the revelation about the so-called new evidence.
Trump was ecstatic. The GOP nominee bellowed that Comey had done his job well.
Then came the news that Comey said there was nothing more to investigate. Case closed. But the damage well might have been done to Clinton’s campaign.
Then the new president took office. He allegedly sought some assurances and a reported pledge of loyalty from Comey. He didn’t get them.
Then the president fired Comey from his FBI job. Ever since, Comey has been called everything but the Son of Satan.
Ahh, the fortunes do turn dramatically.
Now the ex-FBI boss has written a new book. He told ABC News that Trump “might have” obstructed justice. He called the president “morally unfit” to serve.
And then the Twitter tirade came from the president, who responded with “worst FBI director in history … by far!”, “slime ball,” and “serial liar.”
I don’t know about you, but I intend to hold with both hands for the foreseeable future as this dispute plays out. If it ever does!
