Former FBI Director James Comey figured to be the toast of the town.
His new book tour was the latest effort by the media to destroy Donald Trump.
But just as his tour kicked off, Comey was sent scurrying under a rock by the last group of people he ever expected.
Former FBI agents are furious with Comey.
They are blasting his publicity-seeking book tour as demeaning to the FBI.
These former agents are also going on the record ripping his unprofessional behavior and failed leadership.
The Daily Caller reports:
“I’m troubled by the timing of the book and some of the content that has been reported because I think it diminishes him” former assistant director of the FBI Ron Hosko tells TheDC. Hosko took particular exception with Comey’s detailed description of President Donald Trump’s appearance, including his likely use of tanning goggles, his hand size, and the length of his ties.
“To me that kind of salacious commentary diminishes Jim Comey, raises more questions about his true desire here,” Hosko continued. He added that Comey is a “carrier of the FBI brand” and is making the job of current FBI Director Wray much more difficult.
“Director Wray would rather be answering questions on the FBI’s current work, its mission, priorities, and challenges rather than having this rather cloud on his horizon, questions about Jim Comey.” Hosko also warned that Comey’s animus to the president displayed in the interview would stoke accusations that a “deep state” is attempting to undermine Trump and his administration….
…Former FBI special agent and 25-year veteran Jack Garcia was particularly scathing after Comey’s interview. “This man has tarnished that position by offering positions and attacking the president of the United States,” he declared to TheDC, adding that it was “insane” for the former FBI director to offer an opinion on whether the Russian government had compromising information on Trump.
“Our mission and our job is only to state the facts, we don’t state opinions,” he declared, joking that “opinions are like assholes, everybody has one” and that “I am in touch with a lot of agents both current and former, they’re just shaking their heads.”
Former FBI agent James Gagliano appeared on CNN with anti-Trump advocate and conspiracy theorist Brian Stelter.
Gagliano blasted Comey as a “feckless leader” for his behavior that has stained the reputation of the FBI.
The Daily Wire reports:
“After Stelter hyped Comey’s interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, Gagliano dropped the hammer on Comey, calling him a “feckless leader.”
“The issue I take with him, and many former agents and those on board, current on boards take this issue, James Comey is still an FBI employee,” Gagliano said as he explained why Comey’s actions were against DOJ policy. “He’s discussing matters that are relevant and salient to an open or ongoing investigation or case. I.e., the Russia probe. I.e. the Inspector General’s probe. I.e., a number of different congressional probes still going on right now.”
“He’s a feckless leader,” Gagliano continued. “He testified in front of the House Intelligence Committee he wished he’d been stronger but he wasn’t.”
The Comey book tour was a dud.
He revealed no new information and even stated he didn’t think Trump should be impeached.
Now former FBI agents are piling on and exposing him for the fraud that he is.
Do you believe Donald Trump did the right thing in firing James Comey?
