Yet, last night, Comey was in his element with plenty of other mentally deranged individuals. He appeared in a CNN town-hall-style meeting hosted by Anderson Cooper and made the claim that President Trump could be indicted after he leaves office.
Naturally, that will be around six years from now, but the brain-dead audience of liberals refuse to understand that.
The president took to Twitter after the show and balsted the deep state fixer, coverer and slimy jerk.
The Washington Times reported on Comey’s statements:
Mr. Comey was asked by host Anderson Cooper whether Mr. Trump acted with corrupt intent to interfere with an ongoing investigation.
“It sure looks that way,” Mr. Comey replied, saying he based that judgment on his reading of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report and leaning most heavily on Mr. Trump’s order to White House Counsel Don McGahn to fire Mr. Mueller.
When Mr. Cooper asked the former FBI chief whether he agreed with an open letter from numerous federal prosecutors that Mr. Trump would already have been indicted on obstruction of justice charges if he were not the president, Mr. Comey was emphatic.
“Yes. agree. No doubt,” he told Mr. Cooper.
It has been a longstanding Justice Department policy that a sitting president cannot be indicted.
When a president could be indicted poses an awkward question, Mr. Comey said.
He said Mr. Mueller, in writing his report, seemed to be balancing Justice Department policy with building a factual record that could be used in other circumstances, such as Congress’s power to impeach a president.
“I can tell you from personal experience … that can be misinterpreted,” he said, a glancing allusion to his own decisions in the Hillary Clinton emails case.
Contrary to his saying Thursday that corrupt intent could be inferred about Mr. Trump for his actions though, he declined to bring charges against Mrs. Clinton because, he said, such intent could not be proven.
“The Justice Department will have to take a serious look at that,” he said.
However, according to some legal experts, “intent” doesn’t have to be proven in the case of Hillary’s actions as Secretary of State.
The fact that she illegally set up a server and used a personal email to conduct government business is all the evidence needed for an indictment.
The president blasted Comey for his comments later in the evening.
The Hill reported:
Trump knocked Comey in a tweet as “a disgrace to the FBI” while predicting that he “will go down as the worst Director in its long and once proud history.”
“He brought the FBI down, almost all Republicans & Democrats thought he should be FIRED, but the FBI will regain greatness because of the great men & women who work there!” he added.

The statements by Comey show that he is still desperately involved in the failed coup against President Trump. Comey was instrumental in the set up, and he deliberately protected Hillary Clinton from prosecution—despite the last minute press conference that was written by her cronies.
