For nearly 10 minutes on Sunday, Comey and former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki fantasized on MSNBC about the bureaucracy-led campaign to fell their common archenemy, Trump.
“Can you envision a scenario where Trump managed to win back the White House, and justice is delayed?” Psaki asked.
“I could. I don’t want to, but I could. I mean, it’s this crazy world that Donald Trump has dragged this country into, but he could be wearing an ankle bracelet while accepting the nomination at the Republican Convention,” Comey said. “It would be rejected if you put it in a script for a show, but you could have a president who is potentially incarcerated when he’s elected president.”
Comey, who proudly and loudly supported Biden for president in 2020, spent the rest of his time on air fearmongering about the damage a second Trump term could wreak on the nation.
“Think about what four years of a retribution presidency might look like,” Comey said. “He could order the investigation and prosecution of individuals who he sees as enemies, are on the enemies list, because the president constitutionally does oversee the executive branch entirely. Which includes the Department of Justice, prosecutors, and investigators.”
“President Trump could say I don’t care what the Supreme Court says or these district judges say, I’m telling the Marshal Service don’t enforce the court order,” he added.
Grandstanding about the potential abuse of power by Trump is rich when considering how the FBI under Comey abused its authority to launch a “seriously flawed” investigation into alleged collusion, of which there was no actual evidence, between Trump and Russia.
Despite its long history of corruption, Comey claims the FBI is “competent, honest, and independent.” That claim isn’t just false. It’s completely tone-deaf to a majority of Americans who say that the FBI is corrupt and must be punished or dismantled.
Comey’s predictions that a second Trump term will be riddled with malfeasance are also ironic given the fact that his preferred political candidate did the exact thing he claims to fear — weaponizing the federal government against Americans for partisan purposes — for the last two and a half years.
Biden not only threatened to use his executive authority to disrespect the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson decision last summer, but his Department of Justice explicitly warned U.S. Marshals against arresting the pro-abortion mobs violating federal law by protesting outside the homes of Republican-nominated justices.
Trump, Comey claims, “comes for the rule of law, the system of justice, and the agencies with a flame thrower.”
“He will come and try to criticize and attack your family, your witnesses. There are no limits to what he will try to do to obstruct an effort to hold him accountable,” Comey complained.
Yet, once again, the dystopic regime Comey claims will come with Trump is already in full effect under our current president, who has weaponized his administration to pervert the rule of law, threaten democracy, and obstruct justice to protect his son and his corrupt business dealings. Comey, similarly, obstructed justice when he refused to give his testimony about the Crossfire Hurricane investigation to Special Counsel John Durham.
“Our constitution really does give a rogue president, which is what this would be, tremendous power to destroy. And so that’s why I’m trying to warn people. Given the way he said he intends to operate if he’s reelected, this will be something we could never have imagined. Again, it seems like science fiction in a way, but it’s what another four years of Donald Trump really promises,” Comey asserted.
It should come as no surprise that, even after all of the Biden administration’s unconstitutional actions, Comey reaffirmed his allegiance to a regime committed to following through with the political persecution it started in 2016.
“It has to be Joe Biden,” Comey said of the 2024 election. “And I’m glad he’s willing to serve. It has to be somebody committed to the rule of law, committed to the values of this country.”
The current president, Comey asserted, “abides by the law and our Constitution,” which is why “there’s no one else but Joe Biden.”
“I want the American people to stare at the threat that we’re facing and understand that they cannot take the next election off,” he said.
