James Comey, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Intelligence, is not doing anything intelligent but rather he is running around trying to snuff out fires lit by his incompetence and his politicizing of the FBI.
The enforcement of law requires a firm grounding in morality and a commitment to objectivity, both of which are sorely lacking in Comey.
Now comes word from the Daily Caller that Comey has refused to pull his Deputy Director from the ongoing Trump-Russia investigation despite the man’s connection to Hillary Clinton and his insistence on using uncorroborated evidence as a key feature of the Trump inquiry.
The Caller writes that Republicans have petitioned Comey to remove Andrew McCabe from his spot as Deputy Director, citing a “potential conflict of interest given that McCabe’s wife ran a state campaign in Virginia that received $700,000 from Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a close friend of Clinton’s.”
McCabe has also been accused of relying on the unsubstantiated and increasingly discredited intelligence dossier delivered to the FBI by a former British spy, to impugn the credibility of President Trump.
Comey replied through his assistant that the “FBI has assessed that there is no basis in law or in fact for such a recusal.”
Republican Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa was left unimpressed with the Bureau’s response.
“Simply put, the American people should know if the FBI’s second-in-command relied on Democrat-funded opposition research to justify an investigation of the Republican presidential campaign.”
Comey has once again found himself in the middle of a politically motivated mess and he must be removed from office! He cannot be trusted to handle anything competently or with blind justice.
