Did Comey Single Handedly Ruin the FBI’s Reputation?

FBI Director James Comey was just fired by President Trump, and the reasons for his termination are more than justified.

Although his termination was controversial even among conservative groups, Comey was unfit to serve as the FBI Director.

After he butchered the investigation into Hillary Clinton for her antics while Secretary of State, he managed to turn the FBI into an organization whose authority was questioned and reputation threatened.

Hillary Clinton should have been indicted on many counts, but especially when concerned with her email scandal.

Comey instead stopped short in the middle of the investigation and declared he would not recommend charges be brought against her.

President Trump made a statement on Twitter shortly after firing Comey and promised that his replacement would be someone who would restore prestige and honor to the FBI.

The Washington Examiner reports:

“James Comey will be replaced by someone who will do a far better job, bringing back the spirit and prestige of the FBI,” Trump tweeted.

The Washington Post also reports:

Trump had long questioned Comey’s loyalty and judgment, and was infuriated by what he viewed as the director’s lack of action in recent weeks on leaks from within the federal government. By last weekend, he had made up his mind: Comey had to go.

Trump was also quick to point out the hypocritical statements made by several Democrats after they received word of Comey’s termination.

Democrats were openly against Comey for a long while, due to his announcement of reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton just days before the presidential election.

Now that Comey has been let go, some are trying to sympathize – even if they believe he was unfit for the job.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Trump also continued his criticism of Democrats for their shocked reactions to his firing of Comey Tuesday evening, alluding to hypocrisy in their immediate message.

 

“The Democrats have said some of the worst things about James Comey, including the fact that he should be fired, but now they play so sad!” Trump tweeted.

 

Trump lashed out at Democrats Tuesday night for Sen. Chuck Schumer’s press conference and the minority leader’s “indignant” response.

Ultimately, Comey brought his fate upon himself.

The FBI Director was stuck focusing on issues of little importance, such as foreign affairs, while ignoring bigger issues, like Obama potentially wiretapping Trump’s offices and investigating journal leaks.

Do you think Comey singlehandedly destroyed the reputation and prestige of the FBI?

    James Comey was selected by Hillary Clinton and appointed by the alias, Barack H. Obama. Comey was affiliated with the Clinton Foundation among other conflicts that disqualified him for ANY position in the FBI. His appointment by the alias, Obama, is similarly devious to Obama´s appointment of Hitlary Clinton to the Sec. of State slot.
    As stated by president Trump, upon taking office he planned to sack Comey. Obviously, pres. Trump had a motive for retaining Comey in the slot until a couple days ago, but which motive will likely not be revealed.
    Comey was not intimidated by Clinton and the CIA, as I previously thought, but rather he was a stooge of both prior to appointment to the Dir. FBI slot, the basis of his appointment.
    He is well-qualified to be investigated along with the renewed investigation of Hillary Clinton.

    Comey didn’t prevent the Boston Marathon bomber even the Russian KGB sent him the message about the bombers and its planned ahead of time but Comey failed to prevent the incident. Comey also let Hasan massacred our military officers in the military of Fort Hood. Comey let the Ferguson black mobs destroyed the town and killed our police officers. Comey also salvaging Hillary’s legacy in a shattered Libya. The worst one that he intend to free Hillary on the espionage charged of her private e-mail for classified articles and deleted over 30,000 e-mails…etc.

    “Famous But Ignorant” is what many Texas DPS (State Police) called the FBI during the Branch Davidian Siege at Waco, TX.

    Sadly, they’ve now sunk so far that FBI now stands for “the Fix Be In” after L. Lynch and B. Clinton’s ‘clandestine’ meeting on the tarmac of Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, Arizona became PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE.

    Comey had time and opportunity to do the right things and FAILED to do so. It’s not ABOUT him, it’s about unbiased investigation and the rule of law. Comey’s actions have cost him the confidence of the President and, more importantly, cost the FBI the confidence of citizens of the United States. We deserve and need someone who can and will restore that trust and confidence.
