Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey used to be a loyal Republican, but that all changed when Donald Trump ran for President.
Proving the Comey of 2016 and beyond is a reborn Democrat, both James Comey and his wife, Patrice, have collectively donated $19,210 to Democrat campaigns in 2019.
Comey has been politically active virtually his entire career. In 2008, Comey donated to John McCain’s presidential campaign. Then, in 2012, he financially backed Mitt Romney.
After being made the FBI Director under Barack Obama, however, Comey’s loyalties appear to have changed.
Comey was clearly operating his email investigation on the premise that Hillary would be elected president. Letting her off the hook all but assured him of maintaining his position once Hillary took office.
The only problem was Donald Trump threw a wrench into that plan and Comey’s career got flushed.
Donating to Democrats
Comey’s wife has stated on the record she wanted Hillary to win the presidential election. Comey’s statements and actions against Trump make it pretty clear he felt the same way.
Now, both of them are writing checks for just about any Democrat that puts their hand out. James Comey donated $2,700 to Sen. Amy Klobucher (D-MN). He has also written checks for two Virginia congresswomen.
His wife Patrice has opened up her purse to Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) to the tune of $2,700. She has also donated $10,000 to Fair Fight PAC, which supports Georgia Democrat Stacey Adams. Additionally, she wrote a check for $1,000 for Emily’s List, another left-wing group that backs pro-choice candidates.
So, in addition to their political party, sticking up for the unborn also seems to have gone out the window for the Comeys.
The good news is that Comey donating to a campaign seems to be the kiss of death. He has yet to back a winner in a presidential campaign and the donations made by both James and Patrice Comey this year have gone to candidates that are well out of contention.
All we need now is for the Comeys to write checks for Warren, Bernie, and Uncle Joe, and Trump is assured of a winning a second term.
