Comey’s coup

The Washington Times Daily - - EDITORIAL -

The mal­ice afore­thought and in­tent ev­i­dent in for­mer FBI Di­rec­tor James Comey’s Se­nate tes­ti­mony last week make it crys­tal-clear that Mr. Comey was ac­tively work­ing for and plan­ning a soft coup from his very first meet­ing with Pres­i­dent Trump. No other con­clu­sion can be drawn from Mr. Comey’s im­me­di­ate ef­forts to in­ter­rupt his and the pres­i­dent’s con­ver­sa­tions.

More than likely, Mr. Comey ini­ti­ated his note-tak­ing im­me­di­ately af­ter meet­ing with Mr. Trump be­cause he had al­ready de­ter­mined the ne­ces­sity of the soft coup, and was act­ing upon that de­ci­sion. He kept per­son­ally bi­ased, co­pi­ous notes that have now be­come the le­gal el­e­ments of the soft coup. He shared these notes with oth­ers in an ef­fort to con­firm the time­line of their cre­ation and bring aboard in his plan. Mr. Comey also shared some of the con­tents of his notes with the me­dia, likely to pro­mote his soft-coup ef­forts.

While Mr. Comey was busy telling the pres­i­dent that he, Mr. Trump, was not un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion, Mr. Comey was him­self in­ves­ti­gat­ing Mr. Trump and com­pil­ing in­for­ma­tion. Mr. Comey clearly viewed him­self as the judge, jury and ex­e­cu­tioner in this self-ap­pointed role to ‘save’ Amer­ica from what he saw as a po­lit­i­cal out­lander be­com­ing the leader of the free world. What he ac­tu­ally did was plan and at­tempt a trai­tor­ous soft coup, and even so­licited oth­ers to par­tic­i­pate.

Mr. Comey and his co­horts should be pros­e­cuted for their trai­tor­ous con­duct. Mr. Comey’s tes­ti­mony be­fore Con­gress, un­der oath, was noth­ing short of a self-delu­sional con­fes­sion. Mr. Trump did the right thing by fir­ing Comey.
