Radio host and political pundit Rush Limbaugh warned that former FBI Director James Comey might not have the rosy future that he had hoped for his retirement following his public attacks against President Donald Trump.
Limbaugh cited an article by Victor Davis of AmericanGreatness.com called “The Fright of James Comey.”
“It’s a long piece. I could not hope to read the entire thing to you. But I did pull a paragraph from it. Actually, two paragraphs,” Limbaugh introduced the subject by saying.
“Comey seems to have become utterly unhinged by Donald Trump, especially when the president, in his thick Queens accent, scoffs in the vernacular — quite accurately, given the transgressions of the FBI hierarchy — about ‘crooked cops.’ What an affront to Comey’s complexity, his subtlety, his sophistication, his feigned Hamlet-like self-doubt — at least as now expressed in his latest incarnation as Twitter’s Kahlil Gibran.
“Remember, James Comey, assured the nation that the Steele dossier, contra the testimony of his subordinate Andrew McCabe … was not the chief evidence presented to a FISA court. That is likely untrue.
“And if it is not, Comey’s other evidence he presented is likely to be just as compromised. Comey also misled a FISA judge by not admitting 1) that his submitted dossier evidence was compiled by a contractor paid by Hillary Clinton; 2) that ex-British spy Christopher Steele’s work was unverified; 3) [he didn’t tell the FISA court] that Steele’s relationship with Comey’s FBI has already been severed due to Steele’s unprofessional behavior; and 4) that submitted news accounts of ‘collusion’ were in circular fashion based on the dossier itself.”
Limbaugh went on to say that he believes this is in reference to leaks from the FBI to the media.
“The media then reported it. Comey got those media reports and presented it in the list of evidence that he presented to the FISA judge. “See, Judge, even the media has gotten hold of this.” That’s what Mr. Hanson means by the circular fashion.
“In other words, they plant, they leak news to the media; the media reports and publishes the news; then Comey goes, gets that news and takes it to the judge at the FISA court, “Look, Judge. Even the media is reporting what we have found out.” He doesn’t tell the judge that they leaked it to the media!
“In the meantime, expect James Comey to continue his frenetic pace on TV, radio, and in op-eds attacking William Barr and Donald Trump in deathly fear that his illegal behavior may finally have a legal accounting.”
