James Comey plays victim in self-pitying op-ed, calls Trump a ‘shrunken, withered figure’

Fired FBI Director James Comey played the victim card in a self-pitying Washington Post op-ed, where he trashed President Trump by dismissing him as “this shrunken, withered figure.”

Despite the incalculable damage he has done to the FBI, Comey insists that he’s the victim. Comey decried President Trump’s tweets spotlighting how Comey allowed the FBI to obtain bogus FISA warrants to illegally spy on 2016 Trump campaign aides.

Comey lamented in his Washington Post op-ed that there are “four stages of being attacked by Donald Trump:”

“At first, the attack is stunning and rocks your world. Waking up to find the president has tweeted that you are guilty of treason or committed assorted other crimes and are a [insert any one of this president’s epithets here] is jarring and disorienting.

The second stage is a kind of numbness, where it doesn’t seem quite real that the so-called Leader of the Free World is assailing you by tweet and voice.

In the third stage, the impact diminishes, the power of it shrinks. It no longer feels as though the most powerful human on the planet is after you. It feels as though a strange and slightly sad old guy is yelling at you to get off his lawn, echoed by younger but no less sad people in red hats shouting, “Yeah, get off his lawn!”

For the fourth, and final, stage, we need to fight through our fatigue and contempt for this shrunken, withered figure. Spurred by the danger he poses to our nation and its values, we have to overcome the shock and numbness of earlier stages.  We must not look away.”

Comey’s posturing comes two weeks after the FISA Court’s chief judge torched the Obama FBI (under Comey) for defrauding the Court to obtain sham warrants to illegally surveil former Trump campaign aides Carter Page and George Papadopoulos.

So basically, Comey’s meandering diary entry contradicts itself. On the one hand, Comey says it’s horrible being a victim of presidential Twitter trolling because Trump is the most powerful person in the world.

In the same breath, Comey insists that Trump’s trolling is ineffective because nobody takes him seriously. So which is it? Is President Trump a grave threat or is he a clown that no one listens to?

Comey explained that the more Trump rants on Twitter, the less effective his tweets become. “Even his secret weapon has lost power,” Comey wrote. “Americans have grown tired of the show.”

Comey ended his self-serving missive by melodramatically declaring that continued resistance is the only way to stop President Trump.

“We are headed into the storm our founders feared,” Comey warned. “Getting safely to the other side will require all of us to resist complacency and cynicism. Yes, the final stage is a test of the founders’ design, but it is also an opportunity to demonstrate American character. This democracy — made up of citizens and their institutions — is strong enough to weather the storm.”

James Comey is sweating bullets because he and other former Obama officials are being investigated by U.S. Attorney John Durham for their alleged roles in promoting the Russia collusion hoax.

According to the Democrat narrative hatched in 2016, Donald Trump became a Russian asset because he was being blackmailed with threats to expose a videotape where he had paid Russian hookers to urinate on a bed.

Then-FBI Director Comey pushed the “pee tape” narrative.  After an exhaustive investigation, ZERO evidence emerged that the “pee tape” existed. 

But that didn’t stop the media from screeching about it for the past three years. Now Comey and other former Obama aides are terrified about karma coming back to bite them. So expect to see more self-serving op-eds in the coming weeks.
