The more information that surfaces about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, the more it looks like James Comey could soon be getting fitted for an orange jumpsuit.
After Attorney General William Barr and FBI Director Christopher Wray confirmed there is an investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion probe looming, you could practically see Comey start shaking in his boots, according to The Hill’s Kevin Brock.
What We Know
The public release of Mueller’s report was the worst thing that ever could have happened to James Comey.
The facts revealed in the report show that much of what Comey’s initial investigation was based on was either opinion, supposition, or bogus. In other words: there never should have been a probe launched against Donald Trump.
It all starts with the debunked Christopher Steele dossier, and continues on with unreliable witness testimony.
Just look at how Mueller’s team treated Roger Stone and George Papadopoulos!
Covering His Tracks
Comey’s actions make it clear that he knows things are changing for him — and not in a good way.
While Trump was in the spotlight, Comey was getting cute on Twitter, posting obscure pictures and random thoughts.
Now, he is going into battle mode, writing op-eds and trying to hit the TV circuit again.
He is attacking the president every chance he gets, and now he is also going after AG Barr.
But while Comey is on the air calling the president “amoral,” our Justice Department is going over his time leading the FBI with a fine-toothed comb.
There is little doubt among Trump supporters that when this investigation is finished, the DOJ’s Inspector General is going to want to sit down to have a heart-to-heart with Comey.
We know there were improprieties — the only question is: are they bad enough to warrant charges?
But at this point, even a reprimand will go a long way to make Trump’s case that Mueller’s probe was nothing more than a witch hunt. And it all started with James Comey.
