Of all the citizens of the United States, former FBI Director James Comey is one of the very few who has seen all of the actual evidence of Russian election meddling during the 2016 presidential election. When the person who has actually seen that evidence speaks out, it’s important to listen.
As a lifelong Republican who saw the evidence against Trump and his campaign in 2016, his defection from his party is notable. Policy differences aside, Comey saw the truth and the evidence, and now also sees how his own party has failed to address this corruption in exchange for tax cuts and a SCOTUS seat.
His message will inevitably outrage Trump supporters who already believed that Comey was biased in favor of Hillary Clinton, completely ignoring his decision to announce a new investigation into her emails just a handful of days before the presidential election, which gravely hurt Clinton’s campaign. There are still many Trump voters who believe that the former head of the FBI is part of some “deep state” conspiracy bent on taking Trump down. They don’t seem to realize that if that’s what anyone in the FBI or any other intelligence agency wanted, they would have announced that Trump was also under investigation for collusion with Russia.
Trump’s denials about Russian election interference and kowtowing to President Vladimir Putin may be his final undoing. In Comey’s eyes, it already has been.
