Republican Hints: James Comey Under FBI Investigation
We reported on the recent firing of an FBI investigator, Peter Strzok, who was part of Special Prosecutors Mueller’s team.
As it turned out, that investigator is an anti-Trump, pro-Hillary Clinton shill. By the way, so is Mueller.
Yet, the New York Times said of Strzok,
“Peter Strzok, is considered one of the most experienced and trusted F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators.”
Needless to say, the optics of this doesn’t look good for Mueller or the Democrats. And this revelation certainly calls into question the entire investigation, as well as the man who led the FBI at the time the investigation was launched.
Put another way, former FBI Director James Comey finds himself in a real pickle.
And during an appearance on CBS News’s “Face the Nation,” Senator Lindsey Graham hinted that Comey is under criminal investigation.
The Hill reports:
Graham said he did not agree with Trump’s description of the bureau, but said Comey will have to answer for decisions he made during his time helming the FBI.
Trump fired Comey in May, in a decision that triggered the appointment of Mueller to take over the federal investigation into Russia’s election meddling and its possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
“I think he made some decisions that were really very, very wrong,” Graham told host John Dickerson regarding Comey. “There’s an ongoing criminal investigation; Comey may be part of it. You tweet and comment regarding ongoing criminal investigations at your own peril. I’d be careful if I were you, Mr. President. I’d watch this.”
Some observers expect Comey to face more questions about his time leading the FBI investigation.
As eye-opening as Graham’s comment is, an investigation of Comey should come as no surprise. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if an investigation is opened on Mueller.
I don’t think President Trump is concerned about his tweeting, given all the corruption being exposed about this witch hunt on an almost daily basis. And America doesn’t have to guess where he stands.
He began blasting Comey and the FBI on Twitter:
“I never asked Comey to stop investigating Flynn. Just more Fake News covering another Comey lie!”
“Tainted (no, very dishonest?) FBI “agent’s role in Clinton probe under review.” Led Clinton Email probe. @foxandfriends Clinton money going to wife of another FBI agent in charge,” tweeted President Trump.
“After years of Comey, with the phony and dishonest Clinton investigation (and more), running the FBI, its reputation is in Tatters – worst in History! But fear not, we will bring it back to greatness,” added Trump.
Eric Holder weighed in. Unfortunately, not from Leavenworth.
Nope. Not letting this go. The FBI’s reputation is not in “tatters”. It’s composed of the same dedicated men and women who have always worked there and who do a great, apolitical job. You’ll find integrity and honesty at FBI headquarters and not at 1600 Penn Ave right now

He got blasted, but you can read those tweets for yourself.
And how about Comey’s biblical tweet regarding “justice”:
“But justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream” Amos 5:24 https://t.co/o89PSY1YBd

The responses to Comey’s tweet were just as brutal.
America realizes that Comey is a crook, a mere minion for his higher ups. We wrote of Comey’s firing:
The narrative of the Left is that former FBI Director James Comey is a good guy caught in bad circumstances.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Comey was a leftist plant, and President Trump knew it.
As Mark Howard Lewis writes:
There are very few crime/mystery novels that approach this true story for compelling drama, intrigue and brinkmanship (with the nation in the balance).
James Comey is a poisonous snake of the highest order.
He is a deep-water Swamp Denizen who has been highly paid to deliberately provide cover for high-level corruption by the Clintons and Obama. He has been central to trying to destroy the Trump campaign and then the Trump administration from the start. He is as dirty as they come in DC.
Comey had highest-level cover (the FBI no less) and was deep into an effort to eliminate Trump. Trump had to move hard, fast, and at exactly the right time to cut the head off the snake without getting bitten by the snake or being finished by the other swamp denizens.
Notice that the President fired Comey when Comey was 3,000 miles away from his office.
The Left believe the “Deep State” is going to solve their problem. However, little by little the Trump administration finds the rats and the moles. And the American people are smart enough to realize just how corrupt the system has become.
