Comey continues to slap America in the face; mocks Trump, brags about book that will line his pockets

Over the course of the last year, James Comey has revealed himself to be little more than an opportunist now trying to make money with a self-serving revised history of the poor leadership he put America through.

The former FBI director took a not-so-veiled swipe at President Trump on Tuesday with a tweet touting the audio version of his upcoming autobiography “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”

Comey shared a photo of himself recording the narration for his audio book and wrote in his tweet’s caption: “Lordy, this time there will be a tape. Audio book almost finished.”

The comment alluded to President Trump’s suggestion that there were tapes of his conversations with Comey while he was still serving as FBI director.

Comey was fired last year, after which the Obama appointee leaked notes of his conversations with President Trump to the New York times through a friend.

His claims that the president asked for his loyalty and requested an end of the probe into former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn led to the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Since leaving the Bureau, Comey has largely devoted himself to his two favorite pastimes: photographing nature and indirectly criticizing President Trump–sometimes at the same time.

Comey’s repeated calls for “ethical leadership,” which are characteristically devoid of the courage to mention President Trump by name, smack of hypocrisy when he admittedly leaked confidential notes to start an investigation into the person who fired him.

Even the title of Comey’s book–“A Higher Loyalty”–is another subtle jab at the president, an allusion to the New York billionaire’s alleged “loyalty” request, which sounds like something out of “The Godfather.”

Yet for all the quotes he shares about leadership and abuse of power, Comey notably avoids taking “his share of the blame” for the Bureau’s shortcomings under his tenure, including for allowing anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok to co-write Hillary Clinton’s exoneration letter and let witnesses like Huma Abedin off the hook after lying to the FBI.

In fact, Comey hasn’t owned up to reports that he drafted Clinton’s exoneration before the investigation even concluded.

Comey seems to think taking pot shots at the nation’s duly-elected president will help him stay relevant. The former FBI chief should be glad President Trump fired him.

He appears more in his element as an amateur photographer and aspiring philosopher than as an FBI director.
