BIG FAIL: Media Tries to Paint James Comey as FBI God

BIG FAIL: Media Tries to Paint James Comey as FBI God

You can tell when things have worsened for Leftists. I’ll get to that in a minute.

For now, try to imagine the media writing a puff piece on former FBI Director James Comey in light of recent revelations.

Comey was a partisan hack, planted by Democrats to cover their treasonous asses. And that’s putting it mildly.

We know with certainty that Comey lied under multiple times oath about how the FBI conducted the investigation of Hillary Clinton. Then just recently we learned that Comey sat on the Weiner emails for the better part of a month before revealing them as “new”. Less than a week afterward, he exonerated Clinton a second time in the “matter”: code word for “Clinton goes free”.

But now in typical Leftist fashion, the media wants to paint Comey as competent.

As MSNBC wrote:

The officials’ assessment of Comey, facing hours of questions about his decision not to seek charges against Clinton for her use of a private email server, was unmistakably flattering.

“God he is SO good,” Strzok said. “I know,” Page responded. “Brilliant public speaker. And brilliant distillation of fact.”

That exchange is included among 384 pages of text messages between Page and Strzok provided by the Justice Department to Congress and reviewed by The Associated Press. The texts, part of an inspector general investigation into the handling of the Clinton email probe, are most notable for derogatory messages about President Donald Trump — the discovery of which led to Strzok’s reassignment from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team. But they also include wide-ranging and unguarded discussion about a variety of current events and public figures, including Edward Snowden, Julian Assange and an encryption court fight with Apple, as well as candid assessments of their colleagues and their FBI careers and futures.

They marveled at Comey’s ability to speak in total bullsh*t to Congress. Ironically, here is what MSNBC reported these two lovers said of the Republican-controlled Congress:

Congress, wrote FBI lawyer Lisa Page in one text, is “utterly worthless.” ”Less than worthless,” replied Peter Strzok, a seasoned FBI counterintelligence agent assigned to that investigation. “Utterly contemptible.”

How dare those Congressmen try to get to the truth!

But what’s most interesting about the article is how they report the bureau thought of their leader.

Among the thousands of texts, the dialogue about Comey is especially striking because it further calls into question White House characterizations of an FBI in “tatters,” where “countless” agents complained about their director before his removal. Employee surveys released last year show FBI employees consistently gave Comey high marks. And emails published this week by the Lawfare blog show FBI field office leaders using words like “profound sadness” and “hard to understand” in spreading the news about Comey’s May 9 termination, one of the events now under investigation by Mueller for possible obstruction of justice.

Anybody want to bet this was a cherry-picked list of agents, that’s if the list exists at all. But frankly, who cares.

If FBI agents liked Comey, then as far as I’m concerned, we need to clean house. This guy is as corrupt as they come. If agents didn’t believe it then, I bet they believe it now.

MSNBC references employee surveys and blogs to make the case that despite what America now knows about Comey, he was once respected. Undoubtedly, they dug deep to find the people who would vouch for the disgraced former Director. As I alluded earlier, this doesn’t pass the smell test.

I’m certain that lifetime FBI personnel loved working for a man who had absolutely no background in law enforcement.

I wrote of the puff piece about Peter Strzok. The media tried to clean up his reputation:

But now we get the next phase of the Democrats’ ploy. They wish to sanitize the players.

Thus, the Washington Examiner wants us to believe that pro-Hillary Clinton anti-Trump Peter Strzok actually tried to help Trump:

The FBI agent accused of sending anti-Trump text messages co-wrote a draft of the letter former FBI Director James Comey’s sent to Congress informing members he was reopening the bureau’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server days before the 2016 election, according to a report.

Peter Strzok, who exchanged derogatory messages about President Trump and expressed sympathy toward Clinton with FBI colleague and mistress Lisa Page, was in favor of reopening the Clinton probe after new emails were discovered on Rep. Anthony Weiner’s laptop, a source told CNN.

Comey sent the note to lawmakers on Oct. 28, the day after Strzok circulated his “first cut” to other FBI officials on Oct. 27, a little more than a week before voters went to the polls. Clinton has openly blamed that particular letter for her defeat in the 2016 election.

Suggested edits were made to the draft before it was forwarded to Comey by then FBI-chief James Rybicki, per CNN.

Comey would eventually send another letter on Nov. 6 advising Congress the probe had been closed.

See. Strzok isn’t so bad. {wink}

The Washington Examiner piece didn’t help Strzok, and the MSNBC piece won’t help Comey.

Watch what happens over the next couple of weeks, and you will know why the Left tried to sell this nonsense.
