Damned if you do: Hillary’s and the Dems’ love-hate relationship with James Comey

Damned if you do: Hillary’s and the Dems’ love-hate relationship with James Comey

A drawing of the Democratic donkey (or is that an ass?) should appear alongside the dictionary definition of the word hypocrisy. It is a rare day indeed that members of the party aren’t acting in a nakedly political, self-interested manner, but the announcement last Friday that the FBI is reopening the probe into the Clinton email scandal has them in overdrive.

Take DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile … please! She has been tweeting out a steady stream of condemnations of FBI Director James Comey ever since his letter of intent to relaunch their investigation into potential wrongdoing arrived in the hands of Congress.

Here as an example is what she wrote yesterday:

But back in July, Brazile had only praise for Comey’s wisdom and fairness. If she was lambasting anyone it was  the GOP for its petulent refusal to accept the director’s learned judgment:

But when it comes to two-facedness, Brazile can’t hold a candle to Team Clinton itself. In his statement on Friday, Clinton campaign honcho John Podesta wrote, “It is extraordinary that we would see something like this just 11 days out from a presidential election. The Director owes it to the American people to immediately provide the full details of what he is now examining.”

But it was not that long ago that Clinton and her enablers were singing Comey’s praises. Here’s Clinton campaign mouthpiece Brian Fallon:

It still remains to be seen what is in the emails that have prompted Comey’s actions in the last 72 hours, but liberals aren’t content to hold off on idle speculation.
