The witch hunter is about to become the witch hunted.
James Comey went on “Fox News Sunday” and said:
[IG Horowitz] is right. I was wrong. I was overconfident as director in our procedures of the FBI and Justice have built over 20 years years. I thought they were robust enough. It’s incredibly hard to get a FISA. I was overconfident in those because he’s right, there was real sloppiness — 17 things that should have been in the application or at least discussed and characterized differently. It was not acceptable, so he’s right. I was wrong.
Remember, this is the guy who wrote a 300-page tome on how RIGHT he is, followed by a book tour of self-rightness. It may not be obvious, but this is scared James Comey. And he should be.
Democrats have made a habit of sacrificing their own when they become a liability. Smartest Man in Congress Adam Schiff (D – Kommifornistan) hilariously said:
Had I known of [the FISA abuses] … I would have called out the FBI at the same time. But I think it’s only fair to judge what we know at the time, not what would be revealed two years later, but yes, there were very serious abuses of the FISA process, they need to be corrected, we need to make sure they never happen again.
Who’s the convenient scapegoat for the run-amok FBI, do you think? Maybe the guy in charge, entrusted to make sure this skullduggery doesn’t transpire?
The hunters are gathering. The hounds are milling around the horses’s legs. Scuttlebutt says Durham’s report is going to be a bear, and there’s a good chance it could break the dike. Lawmakers aren’t going to want their patent leather shoes all soggy.
Once the Durham report drops, I expect to see Crat lawmakers lining up to toss Higher-Loyalty Jim over the side to swim on his own. He has become a drag on The Cause. Lawmakers who hailed him as the Second Coming two years ago will quietly slip into the murmuring crowd to hoist a pitchfork or a torch.
I am struggling not to enjoy this. I am overcome with schadenfreude at the moment, and I will try to do better. Really, I should be sad that a capable man and an organization that has done valuable law enforcement work in the past have lost their way so egregiously.
It’s just difficult to find forgiveness and charity after Comey, Brennan, McCabe, et. al., have been so darned abusive and vengeful toward people like Michael Flynn, Roger Stone, and every breathing soul who supports the president. I am reminded of when the crowd turns on the pharisee overseeing the stoning in “Life of Brian”:
