And to think he feels he is deserving of an apology. Wow, Comey, get over yourself!

It Seems Trump Was Right To Fire James Comey
Editorial of The New York Sun | August 29, 2019

The most important point to draw from the Justice Department’s report on James Comey is that President Trump was right to cashier him as director of the FBI. The department declined to prosecute the ex-director. The department’s inspector general made clear, though, that Mr. Comey lacks the judgment to safeguard the kind of sensitive information that the Bureau needs to keep safe in order to properly “dispatch” its duties.
That strikes us as devastating. The report focuses on Mr. Comey’s sharing of sensitive memos with persons outside the department, among them his lawyers. He shared some with a friend for onpassing to the New York Times. The IG found Mr. Comey at times failed “to immediately alert the FBI to the unauthorized disclosure of classified information” and was less than completely forthcoming in testimony to the Senate.
Mr. Comey, the IG report concludes, set a “dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees” and thousands of former ones who “similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information.” He should have adhered to department and FBI policies if he wanted a special counsel appointed. Instead he disclosed sensitive investigative information “in order to achieve a personally desired outcome.” It Seems Trump Was Right To Fire James Comey

But, but jenniel. The IG report never delved into the reason Comey acted the way he did. So no matter what The Sun's editorial says, DJT is wrong as usual.
:cool:

The Behind-the-scenes of this tweet is Trump yelling at Barr with "What are you doing? I thought you were loyal!" and then Barr pointing at his Trump Hotel party receipt for $30K.

Pretty bad when the Director of the FBI does not adhere "to department and FBI policies", huh?

What a wonderful example he set for his people!

Wonder how many crimes he committed that we DON'T know about?

Yet.
Probably will find out more when IG comes out with the Fisa report.

Comey is the lowest of the low. He used his position as one who thinks he had a right to try and undermine a duly elected President, promoted the lie that Trump was working with the Russians, and did all he could to bring Trump down.

Yes, Trump had every right to fire the scumbag, but he is not the only dirtbag to be concerned with. In the upcoming days ahead, there will be other deeply involved individuals who really do need some serious jail time.

Comey really should have been charged, but the Deep State has a way of winning and it may take another Trump term to finally bring the Deep State to justice.

LOL - and Mueller found 10 instances of Objustration of Justice by Trump.

Meanwhile, Comey violate a policy
Well, guess what? Those very people who Trump haters have been telling us were stellar citizens are now under investigation, and soon we will be hearing about their fate.

Mueller was a bought and paid phony investigator, costing the American taxpayers millions of dollars, based on the premise that Trump was working with the Russians. That was the claim from the beginning. Turned out to be a complete lie, and you can thank your fake news sources for that. They wasted our time, and many of the topics on this board were all fabricated lies.

Translation - I have not read the Mueller report.

Nor apparently the Comey memos in which Trump asked him to let the "Flynn" thing go

Which is just another example of obstruction of justice.
