The Daily Beast is not exactly a conservative rag. That is what makes the following article so interesting:
Apparently seven current or former FBI agents watched the broadcast interview of James Comey by George Stephanopoulos and they were less than thrilled. Imagine their response when they read the transcript and see what ABC News left on the cutting room floor.
One current FBI Agent who is known as a “Team Comey source” started out pleased and then literally sent a “poop emoji” after the final segment. My favorite quote was:
“Good lord, what a self-serving, self-centered jackass. True to form he thinks he’s the smartest guy around.”
ABC cut out the part of the interview where Comey trashed Obama and dropped a bombshell regarding Loretta Lynch.
“But there was material that I knew someday, when it’s declassified, and I thought that would be decades in the future, would cause historians to wonder, “Hmm, was there some strange business going on there? Was Loretta Lynch somehow in — carrying water for the campaign and controlling what the F.B.I. did?”
Again, it wasn’t true. But there was material that would allow that to come out someday in the long future when it’s declassified. That all changed when someday, in my mind, became maybe tomorrow. That was in the middle of June, when the Russian government, using some fronts, started dumping stolen material that had been hacked from organizations associated with the Democratic party in the United States. And all of a sudden, it dawned on me that that someday decades from now when this material comes out actually may be now, tomorrow. And again, even though I didn’t believe it, the material was real.”
Comey contradicted himself four times in the same interview. He said it wasn’t true. Then he said he didn’t believe it was true. Then he said he didn’t know if it was true or not. Then he admits that the “material” is true. Wow!
The search for this document may rival the search for the Holy Grail. If he said this about something potentially harmful to Donald Trump the MSM would have gone ballistic. Because it involves a Clintonian like Loretta Lynch, they barely noticed. But other people have noticed and even more will notice. The hounds are on the scent big league.
The Comey interview was a real beauty, but in the end, Comey looks more like a beast. Ultmately his attempt at self-glorification will result in him being universally despised by everyone. The one subject on which liberals and conservatives are in agreement is that this man should never have been Director of the FBI.
