Watching James Comey tweet about ‘facts’ is a little bit like seeing a teacher outside of school at the grocery store. You’re super uncomfortable seeing it in real life but you can’t help but peek into the cart to see what your teacher likes to eat for breakfast.
Or in this case what Comey thinks is an actual fact:
Facts matter. The FBI’s use of Confidential Human Sources (the actual term) is tightly regulated and essential to protecting the country. Attacks on the FBI and lying about its work will do lasting damage to our country. How will Republicans explain this to their grandchildren?

Confidential Human Sources sounds like a fancy word for SPY, James.
Is this sort of calling abortion a choice?
Or an illegal immigrant a ‘Dreamer’?
In other words, sure we were spying but get the title right and by the way, it's all under control. https://t.co/3dV5jCwZKv

They’ve gone from claiming they didn’t spy, to claiming that it was for Trump’s own good, to now playing the word game when it comes to calling a spy a spy.
You know when the Left starts spinning like THIS they’re in some seriously deep ca-ca.
What annoys me is that he could tell us the whole story of all of this, start to finish, yet he chooses to call us dummies rather than enlighten us. Why, do you suppose?

There is so much about his tweet that annoys us that we’re not entirely sure where to start.
Then again, there is so much about James Comey that annoys us in general that we were up the creek from the get-go.
“Yes we cheated, but we did it by the book.”

Hilarious ain’t it?
And not hilarious ‘ha ha.’
Remember: Nixon resigned for attempting to spy on the opposition party and failing. Obama succeeded at spying on the opposition party.

Ahem, you mean he used a Confidential Human Source.
Get it right, pal.
Here, either Comey purposefully slides around the central issue, which he admits to, the planting of spies, informants, call them what you will, into a political campaign by burying that in FBI protocols, as if what he admits to is as nothing.
Or else he’s foolishly oblivious.

Probably a little bit of both.
