The desperate, vicious, failing, destroy-Trump-at-any-cost alt-left media as of yesterday have a strange new champion and political hero: FBI Director James Comey. Strange because less than five short months ago in the 11th hour of a tightening presidential race (11 days before the election) Comey delt an unexpected blow (a late "October surprise") to their sure to win darling candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton: Comey (without conferring with Obama's pro-Clinton "tarmac" Justice Department) sent a letter informing Congress that the FBI is reopening its investigation into Hillary's email server. That Comey should now be lauded as a hero by anti-Trumpers after being viciously demonized over the Hillary probe (that definitely cost her late undecided voters and maybe the election) is strange in itself; but stranger still is this sudden love affair after learning yesterday that the Trump-Russia probe started in July, five months before the election and not afterwards-which have some Clinton people badly and understandably upset (see).
Indeed, my question to Trump-haters is this: why does James Comey have any credibility with you as an impartial investigator when there's hard evidence that he's anything but? That he's partisan, corrupt and opportunistic? Why do you trust that he's heading a fair, honest, unbiased probe of Trump's alleged ties to Russia when he kept it under wraps for eight months? When on the very day he reopened the Hillary case he went public with it knowing it would dominate the news cycle until Election Day and hurt Hillary politically (not that I care)? Why aren't you furious after learning that Comey zipped his lips until yesterday about the existence of a Trump probe? Why the silence in July about Trump but not in October about Hillary? Why did Comey keep the Trump probe hidden for the four months prior to the election, and then publicly reveal it 18 weeks later when Trump was securely in power? Why did Comey wait so long? Didn't you, I and the public have a right to know?
The real question is this: was Republican Comey in collusion with the Trump campaign? Like Vladimir Putin, did Comey favor Trump (the border security, law and order, anti-jihad candidate) over Hillary (perceived to be weak on crime, border security and terrorism)? Did Comey at the last moment interfere in the election by design to enable Hillary's defeat and endear himself to irate Republicans so he could keep his job if Trump should win? Was that Comey's plan?
Schiff: We know less than a fraction of what the FBI knows.
Really, Trump haters, how can you be certain that Comey wasn't a weaponized arm of the Trump campaign, and now of the Trump White House, and is putting on a show of impartiality? How can you be sure that when Trump (rejecting calls from Democrats to fire Comey) allowed him to continue as FBI chief he wasn't being rewarded for his October surprise that may have won Trump the White House (as both Hillary and Nate Silver believe see)? Indeed, if Comey finds a smoking gun that could hurt one or more of Trump's associates, or the big man himself, how can you be sure that he won't suppress it-as Adam Schiff recently accused him of doing with a sh*t load of information (see)?
Face the facts Trump haters: with James Clapper two weeks ago telling Chuck Todd that he saw no evidence from the FBI and other intel agencies of criminal collusion between Team Trump and Russia, and with Comey seemingly Trump's man and unreliable to disclose any crimes that have or may come to light since, things are looking mighty grim for you. Comey is not your last best hope for bringing down Trump. In hoping he is you're setting yourselves up for another disappointment (remember Gropergate?). Trump's MAGA revolution disruptively rolls on while you squirm and burn unable to stop him.
