(NationalSentinel) Well, coming from the former director of the FBI, this is quite disturbing.
Or it ought to be to all Americans, regardless of their political affiliation.
By now most everyone is aware that early in his term, POTUS Donald Trump â€” acting on the recommendation of his then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein â€” fired FBI DirectorÂ James ComeyÂ over the pathetic and politically motivated manner in which he (mis)handled Hillary Clintonâ€™s criminal misuse of classified emails.
Since then, Comey has been on a tear against the president, railing on him at every opportunity (and heâ€™s been given plenty of them, thanks to unprecedented Trump hate from the â€œmainstreamâ€ media) and claiming to come from a â€˜holier-than-thouâ€™ position of righteousness and morality.
Now, however, Comey has upped his rhetoric, and at a time when there is great concern about the tenor and tone of political rhetoric â€” so much so that a majority of Americans believe itâ€™s going to lead to actual violence by next yearâ€™s election.
As noted byÂ The Gateway Pundit, Comey on Friday sent out a tweet that can certainly be taken as a direct threat, given the amped-up political environment we now live in.
â€œWe have long had ugly margins in this country, but we are a fundamentally decent people, with shared values. We treasure our identity as a nation of immigrants. With our voices and our 2020 votes, we must send Donald Trump and his mob back to their dark corner,â€ he wrote.
The former FBI director got a lot of pushback to his tweet online â€” a good sign â€” but given that he once held one of the most powerful positions in our government, this kind of talk ought to be concerning.
Not only does it signify that theÂ Deep StateÂ remains committed to deposing Donald Trump for the â€˜sinâ€™ of beating Clinton, the most corrupt, criminally investigated presidential contender ever (aside from her own husband), but it proves that Comey and his ilk have no love lost for those of us who helped put Trump in office (and, hopefully, will line up to keep him there next fall).
Then again, this could be yet another desperate attempt by Comey to deflect. As TGP notes, he remains under investigation by the Trump Justice Department â€”Â Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham, specifically, for his role in â€œSpygate,â€ the FISA warrant abuses related to that operation, and other potential abuses of the law and FBI/DoJ procedure.
The problem is, we havenâ€™t seen any indictments yet. And if we don’t get any, here’s something to think about: If POTUS Trump loses to any Democrat, what is to stop that newly elected president fromÂ installing James Comey as the new attorney general?
That makes this â€œdarkâ€ threat even more ominous, doesn’t it?
