[Ed. – His treachery knows no end.]
Former FBI Director James Comey, who fancies himself an above-the-fray arbiter of justice and rectitude, has decided to dispense some political advice to the American electorate. Then again, the word ‘advice’ may not be the most apt description of what’s conveyed in the tweet [here], which reads more like a directive. If people care about American values, Comey declares, they “must” vote for Democrats this fall — adding that policy differences aren’t relevant in our current national climate, before and tossing in a bonus, overwrought Hamilton reference for good measure. He who serves ‘A Higher Loyalty’ hath spoken. …
A few thoughts on this:
(1) I’m not sure too many Americans are terribly interested in taking electoral marching orders from a controversial and unpopular figure whose conduct has earned him bipartisan contempt. I realize that Comey views himself and his professional actions as broadly inerrant, but the Justice Department’s nonpartisan Inspector General slapped him pretty hard for unprofessionalism and insubordination in a recently-published report, also revealing that Comey is the subject of an ongoing investigation into improper leaking of classified material.
