James Comey’s big interview aired last night. It was something else. Here are a bunch of my favorite ridiculous lines:
“I say that in my book ‘cause I’m trying to be honest, ‘cause that’s the truth there had been all this controversy and mocking about hand size, I can’t remember the details. But as I shook his hand I made a note to check the size and it seemed like he had average sized hands.”
“The challenge of this president is that he will stain everyone around him. And the question is, how much stain is too much stain and how much stain eventually makes you unable to accomplish your goal of protecting the country and serving the country? So I don’t know.”
“One of the things I’ve struggled with my whole life is my ego and — and a sense that I — I have to be careful not to fall in love with my own view of things.”
“I think he’s morally unfit to be president.”
OH. Then there was this whole exchange, in which Comey ADMITS he was “operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump.”
STEPHANOPOULOS: At some level, wasn’t the decision to reveal influenced by your assumption that Hillary Clinton was going to win? And your concern that she wins, this comes out several weeks later, and then that’s taken by her opponent as a sign that she’s an illegitimate president?
COMEY: It must have been. I don’t remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been. Because I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump. And so I’m sure that it — that it was a factor. Like I said, I don’t remember spelling it out, but it had to have been. That — that she’s going to be elected president, and if I hide this from the American people, she’ll be illegitimate the moment she’s elected, the moment this comes out.
And so on. Trump is right. SLIMEBALL.
I was expecting a huge tweetstorm this morning, but we only got one little tweet out of Trump.
Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers. Disgruntled, he, McCabe, and the others, committed many crimes!

Gotta love Mark Levin’s take too.
James Comey is a crackpot and narcissist. His next appearance should be before a grand jury where he’s forced to detail his leaks and obstructions. Can we move on now from this disgruntled weirdo?

Comey’s a self-serving mess. That much is evident.
