Hi, James Comey. We know we yell at you a lot. Like A WHOLE LOT. It is because you are the worst and you are a hack and maybe you were part of the Trump regime’s coup against America, and like Rep. Maxine Waters said as she threw her hands in the air and dropped a hot mic, you have zero credibility. Fuck you, dude.learned this week that the Trump campaign was definitely communicating with Russian intelligence for months before the election? Fun details we learned in that New York Times report included how US intelligence started intercepting those communications right about when they started noticing Russian hacking, and also that, specifically, the FBI’s investigation, its OFFICIAL INVESTIGATION, into former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort’s ties to Russia and pro-Kremlin douchebags in Ukraine started way back last spring.

THEY KNEW. FOR SURE. THAT TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN. WAS COMMUNICATING. WITH THE RUSSIANS.whispered at the New York Times that they had found no clear links between Trump and Russia, right when investigative journalists were really starting to connect the dots of the story.

Jesus fuck, man, when does James Comey get to go to jail?Washington Post. Remember how the FBI interviewed former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn about his phone sex sessions with the Russian ambassador, and how they knew Flynn was lying about the content of those conversations before Trump was even inaugurated? Three guesses who didn’t think it was a good idea to say anything:
Comey said, last month, in a hearing on Russian hacking, that it would shock and awe him and totally mess up his hair to “confirm or deny a pending investigation,” and independent Maine Sen. Angus King just about shit a brick, saying “The irony of your making that statement here I CANNOT avoid”? Yeah.
The Post reported Tuesday that near the end of the transition from the Obama administration to the Trump administration, outgoing CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. wanted to tell the Trump team that Michael Flynn had misled incoming Vice President Pence and others on his contacts with Russian officials. Comey disagreed:
The FBI director pushed back primarily on the grounds that notifying the new administration could complicate the agency’s investigation. The bureau, Comey also insisted, shouldn’t be “the truth police,” according to an official familiar with his thinking at the time. “In other words, if there’s not a violation of law here, it’s not our job to go and tell the vice president that he’s been lied to.”
BUT. HER. FUCKING. EMAILS.
