James Comey has been digging his own hole for months.
And now he may have just struck rock bottom.
That’s because the disgraced former FBI Director was caught in a career-ending lie.
James Comey, the man who oversaw the rigged investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal before being fired by President Trump, continues to make a fool of himself.
This time, he was just caught in a massive lie about the fake “Russian collusion” scandal.
The former FBI Director continues to claim – wrongly – that Republicans authorized and funded the infamous “Steele dossier” in 2016.
The Steele dossier was used to justify spying on Trump’s campaign team.
And it was paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign after they brought on former British spy, Christopher Steele, to compile the material.
Comey, however, can’t help but continue to lie in front of Congressman Trey Gowdy’s Congressional Committee.
In Congressional meetings earlier this month and on Monday, Comey stated multiple times that the dossier was paid for by Republicans who were opposing Trump in the 2016 primary.
“I remember being told that Steele’s work had been funded first by Republicans opposed to Trump, then by Democrats opposed to Trump,” Comey said at Monday’s Congressional interview.
The comments come after earlier claims that Republicans funded the dossier, which Democrats later used to obtain a FISA warrant against a campaign advisor for Donald Trump.
The Daily Caller reports that on December 7th, Comey stated the following, “I thought [Steele] was retained as part of a Republican-financed effort — retained by Republicans adverse to Mr. Trump during the primary season, and then his work was underwritten after that by Democrats opposed to Mr. Trump during 110 the general election season.”
This is a lie, and Republicans can’t believe the former FBI Director would continue to make facts up about something so simple.
Christopher Steele was paid by the Democrats and the Hillary campaign to compile the dossier against Trump.
But it gets worse for Comey.
The disgraced FBI Director brazenly tried to claim that politics played zero role in the FBI’s activities in 2016.
The Daily Caller reports that in a heated exchange with Republican Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC), Comey stated, “Whether it was Sally Smith or Joe Jones, Republican, or Sally Smith, Democrat … to me, it didn’t matter.”
Comey can’t possibly expect anyone to believe that.
Either the man is delusional or he can’t help but lie to members of Congress.
Additionally, James Comey donated the maximum individual amount to Democrat candidates in 2018.
He even went so far as to tweet advice to Democrats running in 2018.
Comey has openly supported several Democrats this year as well—many of whom will now be members of the very Congressional committees supposed to hold him and others like him accountable.
He knows full well that politics played a major role in everything the FBI did in 2016 and beyond.
He just hopes that once Democrats take the House in January, they will sweep all of it under the rug and that the American people will forget about it.
Do you think Comey lied to Congress when he claimed Republicans were responsible for the Steele dossier and that politics played no role in the FBI’s investigations?
