    Not unusual. Trump supporters loved him when he announced the reopening of the Clinton investigation right before the election. I kinda like him for both.

    I'm sure you must have found a video of his audience cheering until Colbert told them to be upset. You wouldn't have made that up, of course.

    Comey appears to me to be a guy really interested in doing the right thing. You can call any number of things he did naive or foolish or even above his pay grade, but a "scam?" No, that's just self-serving blather. What's strange is that you aren't even serving yourself here--you're serving Trump, whom you don't even like and whose own sins you appear (at moments) to recognize.

    This take of yours is just tribal partisanship.
    I suppose 'doing the right thing' can mean different things to different people.

    Comey's promised openness is particularly tantalizing for some congressional investigators who have been trying unsuccessfully to get Comey to answer questions in the months since he was fired. The FBI has treated the Comey memos as if they are classified at the super-duper highest levels they're not, with some not being classified at all and forbidden note-taking by the few lawmakers who have been allowed to see them. And as far as Comey sitting down with, say, the Senate Judiciary Committee as it investigates aspects of the Trump-Russia affair? Forget it.

    On May 17, 2017, after Comey was fired, the Judiciary Committee asked him to testify about the circumstances of his firing and his dealings with the Trump and Obama administrations in the Trump-Russia and Clinton email investigations. Comey declined. (He agreed to just one session, with the Senate Intelligence Committee, which had different sorts of questions.)

    On May 26, the Senate Judiciary Committee's top two Republicans and top two Democrats Chairman Chuck Grassley, ranking minority Dianne Feinstein, plus Lindsey Graham and Sheldon Whitehouse wrote Comey again. "Given our role in considering the nomination of the next FBI director, the still unanswered questions from your last oversight hearing, and our role in oversight of the Justice Department and the FBI, your testimony will be essential to our constitutional duties," they wrote. Specifically, the lawmakers wanted to know as much as they could find out about Comey's memos.

    On June 1, Comey sent a brief response. "I have received the letter," he wrote the committee. "As a private citizen now, I respectfully decline to answer the questions. Wishing you the best, Jim Comey."

    Comey has not exchanged a word, spoken or written, with the committee since then.
    -
    As for lawmakers, particularly those on the congressional committee most responsible for overseeing the FBI when Comey was its chief, it would have been nice to hear Comey's story before he had something to sell.

    It be true.

    And, a more accurate statement would be, you COULDN'T have made that up.

    Sometimes, the truth is stranger than fiction...

    I see I struck a nerve. Good!

    These types care only about two things - money and maintaining a phony religious front. That's why they dig Trump.
