James Comey likes to think of himself as a politically impartial (former) servant of the American people. But the reality is, just like everyone in Washington, Comey has an agenda — and apparently, he isn’t afraid to put his money where his mouth is.
The former FBI director and his wife have reportedly donated nearly $20,000 to Democrats so far this year.
And Comey still says his choice to exonerate Hillary Clinton all those months ago was nonpartisan?
The big bucks
According to Breitbart, FEC filings show that Comey has donated $2,700 to his law school peer Amy Klobuchar (MN).
The former FBI director also reportedly donated to two now-freshman Virginia congresswomen in their 2018 midterm bids.
For her part, Comey’s wife, Patrice, is also a staunch Democrat supporter.
She reportedly donated $10,000 to a PAC associated with Stacey Abrams in May, and she has donated roughly $5,000 between Klobuchar and California Sen. Kamala Harris so far in 2019.
Indeed, it’s clear that the Comeys are pushing large sums of money toward their preferred agenda. Not exactly the mark of “impartial public servants.”
Don’t let the door hit you
James Comey was once registered as a Republican and even supported John McCain and Mitt Romney in their bids for the White House in 2008 and 2012, respectively. But the former FBI director had developed somewhat of a reputation for himself as RINO — or, “Republican In Name Only.”
As the name implies, the term is used to describe members of the GOP who clearly aren’t looking out for the conservative agenda — and there’s no better example of that than Comey.
Once Trump came around, Comey switched his party registration to Democrat, apparently unhappy with the direction Trump wanted to take the country.
But unfortunately for Comey, Election Night 2016 ended up with Trump on top. And America has only gotten greater ever since.
