James Comey just sat down with the NY Times to talk about Twitter and Donald Trump, and the president has to be pretty pissed off about it. Comey was fired by Trump in 2017 after refusing to fall in line with the president’s corrupt and criminal behavior.
Comey joked about the possibility of deleting his Twitter account after this whole Trump fiasco is finally over with, saying:
“I have a fantasy about on January 21, 2021, deleting my Twitter and moving on to something else. But until then, I can’t.”

Comey has recently come under fire for publicly hoping that the president is not impeached because he doesn’t think it would fix any of the problems the Trump Administration brings. Comey said this about impeachment:
“As a citizen, I kind of hope [Trump isn’t impeached] because I think the American people would be let off the hook if Donald Trump were impeached and removed from office. And a lot of his supporters would think some sort of coup had taken place.”
Lordy, there’s a tape.
Here’s my conversation with James Comey on #CrossfireHurricane, law enforcement and intelligence, and President Trump’s clashes with the rule of law.
It wasn’t your typical interview…

Maybe if Comey had done what Trump wanted him to do, which was to bust Hillary Clinton by any means necessary, the president would have been impeached in 2017? But maybe he would have gotten away with it just like he does everything else.
One thing is for certain. People are sick and tired of Democrats doing nothing but making threats when it comes to the constant obstruction of justice coming from the Trump Administration.
1. When his country needed him most, Comey chose to break protocol, cover his own ass, and acquiesce to GOP/Russian ratfuckery and swing an election.
2. Fuck James Comey.
3. Fuck James Comey’s forgiveness tour.
4. We are not rehabilitating this asshole. He chose his bed. pic.twitter.com/R80Ppu84ic

As you can see, not everyone is pleased with James Comey, despite being fired by Trump. Comey’s years of service to this country have been marred by the divisiveness of this administration, as well as by Comey’s own doing.
