Democrats are feasting on the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
But months ago they were signing a different tune.
And when questioned about their hypocrisy, Nancy Pelosi gave a ridiculous answer.
For months, Democrats had been demanding Comey’s head on a silver platter.
They held as an article of faith that the FBI Director had swung the election in Trump’s favor by announcing the FBI had reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server just days before the election.
But when Trump finally fired Comey, Democrats erupted with charges of cover ups and obstruction of justice.
Pelosi was asked about these changing stories in a CNN town hall event.
“During a town hall hosted by CNN, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was asked about why so many Democrats are up in arms about President Trump‘s decision to fire James Comey, even though the former FBI director was despised by many on the left.
“Before the election on November 8, your side of the aisle were asking for the former head of the fbi to resign,” said questioner Jake Lee. “Now that he has been let go, why the sudden and selective outrage from your side of the aisle?”
Pelosi argued that Comey’s firing was “distressing” because President Trump admitted shortly afterwards that Comey’s investigation into his campaign was a motivating factor in his decision to dismiss him. Pelosi also invoked how the timing of Trump’s decision puts his reasoning into significant question.
“We believe that the FBI is… an independent law enforcement agency to be respected, and [the director is] not to be fired by the president because he’s tired of an investigation they’re doing,” Pelosi said.”
Democrats savaged Comey.
Chuck Schumer said he lost confidence in him.
And liberals were so conditioned to hate Comey that left-wing comic Stephen Colbert’s audience cheered when he announced Trump had fired Comey.

The whole liberal freak out over Comey’s firing was nothing but crocodile tears.
They used the event to stage a political meltdown to coordinate with the media in their conspiracy to take down Trump.
They were blatantly two-faced positions enabled by members of the press who hate Trump and whose commitment is not to the truth, but to the “resistance.”
And Pelosi proved this with her ridiculous answer.
