Disgraced former FBI director James Comey took his war of words with President Trump to the next level this week; viciously comparing the Commander-in-Chief to a “mob boss” of an organized crime family.
Sara Carter points out that the bureau chief is hardly the first to call Trump a “mafia boss,” adding that former FBI director Louie Freeh publicly labeled the Clintons an organized crime family back in 1997.
“If former FBI Director James Comey believes he’s the first official to liken a president’s actions to that of the mafia, he would be sorely wrong. In Comey’s new book he says President Donald Trump worked for months to secure his loyalty through a series of meetings and phone calls during the transition period and compared the president to a mob boss,” writes Carter.
“The same happened to former President Bill Clinton. In fact, there was insurmountable evidence that came to light in the final weeks of Clinton’s 1996 campaign involving a Chinese fundraising scandal that plagued Clinton’s election and involved an FBI investigation, as well as Congressional hearings,” she adds.

COMEY’S REVENGE: Former FBI Chief Claims Memo ‘DESTROYED TRUST’ with Intel Community
Former Director of the FBI James Comey weighed-in on the controversial FISA memo released by the House Intelligence Committee Friday afternoon, blasting the document as “dishonest and misleading” and falsely claiming it “exposed” a classified investigation.
The former bureau chief -who was fired by President Trump last year for his botched investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server- posted his comments on social media within minutes of the document’s disclosure.
“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 tweeted.

While Comey may found the memo’s revelations “boring,” the explosive document shows the FBI and Department of Justice used the debunked ‘Trump Dossier’ to secure FISA court warrants against “at least one member” of the Trump campaign during the run-up to the 2016 election.
FLASHBACK: Mad Maxine Says James Comey ‘HAS NO CREDIBILITY’
The mainstream media and Democratic lawmakers continued their non-stop coverage of former FBI director James Comey’s anti-Trump book Thursday, but liberal legislators were singing a different tune ahead of the 2016 election.
Despite left-leaning pundits’ all-out obsession with the bureau chief’s new memoir, Democrats are desperately hiding the fact they blasted Comey for his handling of Hillary’s email investigation during her race for the White House.
For once, I agree with mad Maxine Waters.

Firebrand liberal Maxine Waters slammed the FBI director after he re-opened the Clinton investigation just weeks before voters went to the polls, saying “All I can tell you is the FBI director has no credibility.”
