If there’s one thing you can say about Deep Staters, it’s that they’re relentless when it comes to covering up their misdeeds.
Take fired FBI Director James Comey — and let’s never forget that he was fired for cause from his job. There he was again on Monday, this time in Sarasota, Fla., defending his pathetic allegiance to a secret society for refusing to prosecute one of their own, Hillary Clinton.
Addressing Clinton’s criminal abuses of classified emails, Comey told an audience there was “zero chance” she’ll ever be held legally liable for it, essentially daring the Trump Justice Department to ‘do something about it.’
“There is zero chance, zero chance, on the facts in the Hillary Clinton case, that she would be prosecuted,” Comey said during a town hall lecture., the Washington Examiner reported. “You are out of your mind if you don’t think the FBI wanted to make a case if we could. The facts weren’t there. Period. Full stop.”
Translated: We’re out of our minds if we still harbor the ‘unrealistic’ expectations that our public servants have an allegiance to We the People instead of a cabal of unaccountable, unelected elites who live their lives above the law.
But let’s not kid ourselves or, rather, let’s not let Comey troll us.
We know Hillary Clinton was guilty as hell of abusing the laws governing the handling of classified materials. We know she destroyed evidence. We know she ignored lawfully issued congressional subpoenas. And we know that Comey himself had made his mind up months before his announcement in July 2016 that he had no intention of allowing a Deep State cabal member in good standing to endure the indignity of an indictment and public trial, mostly because he believed he’d be working for her (and she would owe him).
We also know that Comey himself is likely just as guilty as Clinton for mishandling classified emails. We believe he’s lied to Congress — an offense that will get you an FBI SWAT team visit early in the morning if you have had anything at all to do with POTUS Donald Trump. And we’re sure that he was intimately involved in helping his former boss, Barack Obama, plan and execute “Spygate,” the operation to undermine Trump’s presidency using his buddy, Robert Mueller.
Listening to Comey lecture us about the righteousness of his actions and our ‘unrealistic’ expectations about holding people like him and Clinton responsible is hard to take, but harder still is watching him do it while he’s breathing free air.
But he’s right: He and Clinton and those who acted in concert with them to perpetuate the worst act of treason in our country’s history will very likely never be held accountable for what they’ve done.
So all we can do is highlight his hypocrisy for the historical record and for posterity so that Americans generations from now will be able to know what they did, the selfish, self-centered reasons for why they did it, and the damage they did to our institutions and our form of government.
It’s not enough for many Americans, but we’re going to call out these charlatans and liars whenever possible because failing to challenge them isn’t acceptable, either.
