FISA MEMO: James Comey dismisses the bias, fake dossier linked to Clintons, DNC to spy on Trump team

It didn’t take long for James Comey to attempt some damage control, if nothing else, to join the Democrats’ efforts to dismiss the FISA Memo and the details surrounding the collusion to spy on the Trump campaign and sabotage his efforts to win the 2016 election.

From Twitter: “That’s it? Dishonest and misleading memo wrecked the House intel committee, destroyed trust with Intelligence Community, damaged relationship with FISA court, and inexcusably exposed classified investigation of an American citizen. For what? DOJ & FBI must keep doing their jobs.” – @Comey

Wall Street Journal’s Kimberly Strassel: “In which Jim Comey explains how he’s good with using Clinton campaign documents to get spying powers, and good with not being straight up with a FISA Court. Good to know that’s how some FBI leadership thinks.” –@KimStrassel

And then tweeted:

If you are a FISA judge, wouldn’t you have different reactions to a dossier described as “politically motivated” vs. one “funded by the rival of the campaign being spied upon”? The fact FBI shaded the truth suggests it was worried about just that.

Fox News says the Memo reveals how Comey “disgraced” the FBI.

Chris Swecker writes: “It pains me – as a former FBI executive who loves and respects the organization – to say that Comey’s short tenure at the FBI has proven to be the worst thing to happen to the agency since Director L. Patrick Gray was fired during the Watergate scandal.”

Swecker details how Comey “usurped the role of the Justice Department in publicly exonerating Hillary Clinton from wrongdoing in her handling of government emails when she was secretary of state” and let “Attorney General Loretta Lynch off the hook to formally recuse herself from the Hillary Clinton probe as a result of Lynch’s own inexcusable and inept conduct in meeting former President Bill Clinton while his wife was under Justice Department and FBI investigation.

“Comey set in motion a cascading set of events that resulted in the FBI becoming a pawn in a political firestorm. He justified making up his own rules because he felt righteous.”

Comey still sounds, based on that tweet, that he is righteous.

    […] the political divide has broadened with Democrats calling it a “nothing burger” and James Comey seemingly mocking it with his remarks to rebuke the memo’s contents. President Trump and others are touting the […]
