James Comey Pleads for Voters to Re-Elect Biden

The poster boy for the weaponization of the Department of Justice is in panic mode that former President Trump may be re-elected in November. 

This is one odd election year. The current president is running for re-election against the previous president. This means we know how both candidates perform in office. We know how each behaves in the office. There are records to compare. 

The left is working overtime to convince voters that if Trump wins in November, very bad things will happen. James Comey, former FBI director during the Trump and Obama administrations, is sounding the alarm that if Trump wins, there will be serious repercussions. Comey said Trump will go after the FBI and the Department of Justice. 

Gosh. I sure hope so. Someone has to clean up the FBI and DOJ after the damage done during the Biden administration. 

Comey led the FBI from 2013 to 2017. He said it would be dangerous for all Americans if Trump wins in November. The left is pushing the narrative that if Trump is re-elected, he will concentrate on retaliation against those who he thinks have gone against him. Trump has joked that he will be a dictator for one day, his first day back in the White House. The Trump-deranged left takes him seriously about that. Comey said Trump has called upon Congress to defund the FBI and the DOJ. He said that last month Trump said he could fire U.S. attorneys who do not follow orders to prosecute someone he wants to be prosecuted. 

Trump has called for a big, beautiful new FBI building in Washington, D.C. so he isn't planning to eliminate the agency at all. In Biden's 2025 budget, Biden asked for $3.5 billion for a new FBI headquarters in Greenbelt, Maryland. Trump wants it to stay in D.C. 

Comey trashed Trump on MSNBC as he usually does. Now he is begging voters to get out and vote for Biden whether they like him or not. 

“He knows their power, and I think he has regrets that he didn’t work hard enough to corrupt them last time,” Comey said on MSNBC's Alex Wagner Tonight. “So he’s coming for them and that’s a danger for all Americans.”

“You cannot sit on the sideline,” Comey said. “I don’t care how you feel about Joe Biden, you must vote for him because the consequences on the other side are too severe.”

The left always accuses the right of doing what the left is doing. Comey insists that if Trump is re-elected, he will select people who are willing to do his bidding. He said Trump lacked "all-stars" in his first administration and if re-elected, he would have "the bottom of the barrel" in a second administration. Given some of the characters in the Biden administration, that is a bold claim. Look no further than Secretary Mayorkas who follows Biden's instructions to leave the southern border open. Every president chooses people to surround himself with who he thinks will carry out his policies and decisions. 

Trump has blasted the FBI over their raid on Mar-a-Lago. He pointed out the double standard between how he was treated over having classified documents in his possession and how Biden was treated. Biden was not supposed to have any classified documents in his homes or offices. Biden was treated with kid gloves. Trump was treated like a SWAT team was going after a murderer. 

Comey was in charge when the FBI investigated Hillary Clinton. Her use of a private email server when she served as Secretary of State was worthy of an investigation. She was found to have acted in a manner that warranted prosecution but Comey wimped out in 2016. He held a press conference to announce she acted improperly but he wasn't going to move forward with prosecuting her. Democrats lost their minds that he did that so close to the 2016 election. 

Now Comey is repeating the DNC talking point that democracy is on the line. He has been silent while Team Biden uses lawfare against Trump. It's unprecedented yet not a peep from Comey. As long as it is against Trump, it's ok. 

Comey went so far as to praise the hush money trial in Manhattan against Trump. MSNBC host Alex Wagner, like other Democrats, is sad that it is likely the only trial that will be held before the election in November.

"As a former law enforcement guy how do you - are you frustrated by the way this is all unfolding?" she asked.

"Yes. But I also have found this trial to be a great civics lesson for the American people. It appears more are paying attention than I would have expected, and they’ve seen this is how it works," Comey said. "You may not lose supporters when you shoot somebody in the middle of Fifth Avenue, but you will be held accountable, and this is what accountability looks like. You have to sit at that table, no matter who you are, and shut up."

"The jury is what matters," he continued. "We will protect them at all costs. This is how it works and it’s a great lesson for the American people. The rule of law in this country, especially the court system, has passed its stress test, slow on the federal side, but this is a great example for our people."

A great civics lesson, eh? The hush money trial is devoid of even producing a crime that should be prosecuted. What is Trump guilty of? He paid a porn actress for sex. That isn't a crime. He had her sign an agreement to keep quiet. That isn't illegal. His lawyer handled the negotiations with her, the payment, and how the payment was shown on the corporation's financial records. If the financial disclosure is the problem, that's on others, not Trump. He didn't do his own bookkeeping. Where is the crime?

D.A. Alvin Bragg knew there was no case here. He was pressured to indict Trump anyway and bring it to trial. The previous D.A. in Manhattan refused to do it. Bragg had to find a way to turn what is a misdemeanor at best into a felony charge. He did so for purely political reasons. Comey is throwing in with corrupt Democrats who use the judicial system for political purposes. 

There is an unconstitutional gag order on Trump. No one else, just Trump. The judge is a Democrat donor and his daughter raises millions of dollars for Democrats. She is using the trial to raise more money for Democrats. Does all this fit into a civics lesson for Comey? 

James Comey has no credibility. He pushed the Russia hoax created by Hillary Clinton's campaign against Trump.

The left forgave Comey for investigating Hillary because he became a rabid Never Trumper when Trump fired him. Comey cashed in, as other Never Trumpers did, by writing books and embracing the left on MSNBC and CNN. Comey was their darling. 

Now Comey is doing the DNC's bidding in the media. Team Biden is panicked about Dementia Joe's polling numbers. His re-election isn't looking good right now. Comey has played a vital role in the corruption of the FBI and the DOJ. He conveniently projects his own guilt onto Trump. That is what Democrats do. 

Comey is preaching to the Trump-deranged choir. He isn't convincing anyone to vote for Biden with his dramatic warnings. That's the beauty of Trump having a record in office. If Trump is re-elected and does make moves to clean out The Swamp, at least half of the country would applaud his efforts.
