    Comey should be praised for bringing the corruption of Trump to light. He may have broken FBI rules, but he did a great service for the country.

  2. The word is cant

    That’s because Comey did nothing wrong and what he did was right.

  4. Well Trump, if you think Barr f*****d up you should fire him. Soon!
    But I think it’s very decent of the justice department to not file charges, being as he didn’t break any laws and all. Trump and Barr must be slipping.

  5. The doj is so useless. Fire all of them and start over

    It would be so nice if Trump supporters could comprehend the concept of gaslighting .

    • The media has been constantly attacking Trump, and pushing a narrative rather than stating the facts. There is an oversupply of stories. That is gaslighting. Sorry, media, I can decide for myself. You don’t tell me what to believe.

    • @vshah1010
      Sorry for covering CRIMINAL PRESIDENT OF UNITED STATES. Let’s talk about real important things like… CHEESEBURGER EMOJIS!

    • That’s exactly what you’re doing

    • @vshah1010 Trump’s mouth and cruelty are his enemy.

  7. The information was true so what to trump have to say .

    NDA’s : hmph… Only needed when involved in criminal activity or wanting something kept secret…in this instance clearly he operated under the guise of patriotic duties to the country and it’s inevitable path to devolving into it’s present state of chaos and corruption…non- prosecutable ,no fundamental base of criminal intent…broke a ” rule of law” not a regrettable act …very smart individual, he’s not waiting on the f*!:*Ng BUS…

  9. Somewhere, Comey has his feet up, sipping on some Irish whiskey, with a smile on his face.😆
    That sounds like a good idea. Jameson it is!!!

  10. The tweeting twit and his cronies leak more than Comey ever did.

  11. HE DID NOT BREAK THE LAW, Period! If he did, you can be sure that the 1% puppets installed by the traitorous criminal in the White House, would have done their masters bidding.

      Scum bag Comey was smart I will give him that, leaking the info to someone who still had a clearance and then hired him as his personal attorney thus his violations would not have likely gotten a conviction. He is however a lying scum bag who violated his oath, DOJ and FBI policy leading the biggest coup attempt and scandal in US history. He is also not out of the woods yet as the falseified FISA applications he signed off are still being investigated.

  12. I remember trump said i tape my conversation comey for like a week and half. On the other hand comey really was taking notes

      zeus44tko2 The FBI had far, far less evidence against General Flynn, and still less—nothing, really—on Roger Stone. Regardless, Stone was treated to a swat team take down with dozens of FBI men pointing weapons at him. The disgraced former FBI head Comey can collude to take down a lawfully elected president and so far he has suffered no consequences other than getting fired by Trump. As a result of Barr’s reluctance to prosecute, Comey gleefully claimed he has been exonerated and he even demanded an apology.

      Former CIA director John Brennan piled on and attacked the president, saying his ‘protective cocoon was only temporary.’ Whatever it means, it sounds ominous and threatening. The coup criminals are not giving up!

      If Barr lets all the other coup conspirators off, then we’ll know for sure we live in a banana republic. The swamp-dwelling perpetrators need to face equal justice under the law. Comey deserved the swat team—not Roger Stone. Instead he’s let off the hook. The Deep State wants us to believe Comey is a patriotic hero. Like with Epstein, they force outrageous whoppers upon us and if we question them we get marginalized as ‘conspiracy theorists.’ (Garrison)

      W H A T A D E E P S W A M P !

  13. Trump berating Comey about propriety is like the devil arguing with Jesus about the Law.

  14. Excoriated!! Wow, Trump, you do know a few different words!

  15. Hey Dodgy Donny….. Might be an idea to check the wind direction before tossing out the epithet “dishonest fool”.

  16. And today Trump tweets a classified photo of a failed missile launch in Iran.

    They weren’t ‘Trump memos’.
    They were FBI memos regarding confidential communications with Trump while director of the FBI.
    Which is very much illegal. BTW

  18. Comey had to protect himself from Trumps mechinations to get Comey to cover Russia implications.

    well if Comey didn’t break any laws why go public with this crap

  20. DOJ won’t prosecute ANY of the criminals in DC…the United States hasn’t had a justice department in over 50 years…
