James Comey is a worm, squiggling this way and that. Ann Coulter pins him down and dissects him. From Coulter at anncoulter.com:
There have been a lot of questions about why Trump fired James Comey, ever since he announced to NBC’s Lester Holt — incomprehensibly — that it was his decision, citing, by my count, at least a half-dozen different reasons.
On Sunday night, that question was answered. We all owe a debt of gratitude to Comey for showing the American people why he was so badly in need of firing.
Interviewed on his new book, “
Living in Truth,” “ The Dictates of My Conscience,” “ The Politics of Truth,” “A Higher Loyalty,” it quickly became apparent that one of Comey’s favorite formulations is: I honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but I don’t know whether so-and-so sodomized a chicken. It’s possible. I don’t know.
Here he is on ABC News, accusing Trump of hiring prostitutes to urinate on a hotel bed in Moscow (possibly — I don’t know):
“I honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but I don’t know whether the current president of the United States was with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow in 2013. It’s possible, but I don’t know.”
And here he is on ABC accusing Trump of colluding with Russia:
“More words I never thought I’d utter about a president of the United States — but it’s possible [that he is compromised by Russia]. It is stunning, and I wish I wasn’t saying it, but it’s just — it’s the truth. … It’s possible.”
And here he is being interviewed by USA Today on Russian influence:
“I don’t know [if President Trump has been compromised by the Russians]. And these are words I never thought would come out of my mouth about an American president, but it’s possible. I’m not saying it’s likely, I don’t know, and the honest answer is it’s possible.”
None of this says anything about the president. It tells us only that Comey has a low opinion of Trump, which I already knew.
