Former FBI Director James Comey re-emerged from semi-retirement this week to take a swipe at President Trump; shamelessly promoting his upcoming audiobook on social media and sarcastically writing, “this time there will be a tape.”
The former bureau boss posted a picture of himself on twitter Tuesday evening, informing his followers that his “audio book is almost finished,” adding “Lordy, this time there will be a tape.”

Comey’s comments reference similar statements he made during his Congressional testimony last year, where he told lawmakers he “hoped” President Trump kept secret recordings of private conversations held in the Oval Office.
The blowback on social media was immediate, with one user sarcastically asking the bureau’s top brass, “Do you admit in the book to being responsible for this mess?”
The former FBI boss made headlines earlier this year when he officially announced he would be teaching a course on “ethical leadership” at the College of William and Mary in the coming months.
COMEY CHAOS: Susan Rice’s ‘UNUSUAL’ Email Raises NEW QUESTIONS About Comey’s Testimony
A bombshell email from former National Security Advisor Susan Rice sent during President Trump’s inauguration is raising serious questions over former FBI director James Comey’s congressional testimony; highlighting possible inconsistencies over high-level meetings with President Obama during Trump’s transition.
Rice’s email -sent to herself on January 20th, 2017- detailed ongoing discussions between James Comey, Barack Obama, and other senior staffers regarding Russian election interference; prompting Congressional leaders to question why he never mentioned the meetings while speaking under oath.
“I spoke alone with President Obama twice in person (and never on the phone) – once in 2015 to discuss law enforcement policy issues and a second time, briefly, for him to say goodbye in late 2016,” Comey said during his opening statement.
“Yet Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., earlier this week released an email Rice sent to herself on Inauguration Day 2017, detailing an Oval Office meeting held Jan. 5 with Obama, Comey, then-Vice President Joe Biden, then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and herself,” writes Fox News.
The email raises serious questions over former President Barack Obama’s involvement in the FBI’s investigation into allegations the Trump campaign “colluded” with Russian officials, as well as the administration’s involvement in Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
COMEY CONFUSION: Former FBI Boss Told Congress FLYNN DIDN’T LIE to Bureau
While Robert Mueller’s never-ending Trump investigation continues to spiral out of control, recent information is shedding new light on former advisor Michael Flynn’s testimony; with inside sources saying James Comey told Congressional leaders the bureau didn’t believe Flynn intentionally lied.
According to the Washington Examiner, “two sources” with inside knowledge of both Flynn’s conversations with the FBI as well as Comey’s testimony to Congress claim the former FBI chief told investigators that the bureau “did not believe” Flynn had either lied or was intentionally lying while speaking with agents.
“According to two sources familiar with the meetings, Comey told lawmakers that the FBI agents who interviewed Flynn did not believe that Flynn had lied to them, or that any inaccuracies in his answers were intentional. As a result, some of those in attendance came away with the impression that Flynn would not be charged with a crime pertaining to the Jan. 24 interview,” writes the Examiner.
Despite Comey’s assertions, Robert Mueller charged Flynn approximately nine months later with intentionally making false statements to the FBI during his January 24th questioning.
The revelation raises serious questions over why Flynn was charged, and whether Robert Mueller’s ongoing witch hunt is desperately searching for inroads into President Trump’s inner-circle.
