Rod Rosenstein has been very cordial regarding the former Director of the FBI, James Comey.
That, however, has all changed after Comey took several cheap shots at Rosenstein over the last two weeks.
Rosenstein finally responded, calling Comey a “partisan pundit.”
A significant amount of people in this country, including President Trump, believe James Comey was part of a deep state coup working against Trump both before and after he was elected president.
When Comey was fired, Democrats latched onto the firing to accuse Trump of obstruction of justice.
That firing, however, was later justified by an investigation by the Inspector General.
Not only was Comey disgraced in his firing, but now Americans are finding out he bent more than a few rules in his efforts to have Trump removed from office.
All of this obviously took a toll on Comey.
On this, Rosenstein stated, “I do not blame the former director for being angry.
“I would be too if I were in his shoes.
“But now, the former director seems to be acting as a partisan pundit, selling books and earning speaking fees while speculating about the strength of my character and the fate of my immortal soul.
“I kid you not.”
How It Got Started
Not long after being fired, James Comey wrote “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”
Comey has also penned several op-eds blasting Trump, something he has also done on numerous occasions when given the opportunity to get in front of a microphone.
During that time, it has become painfully clear he not only disliked Trump, but he was putting all of his eggs into Hillary’s basket.
Recently, Comey has taken to attacking Rosenstein, calling him, a man “of accomplishment, but not real sterling character, strong character.”
In Comey’s most recent op-ed, he characterized Rosenstein of falling victim to Trump, a man who “eats your soul in small bites.”
When Comey was initially fired, Rosenstein actually agreed with the firing in a memo, something that surely irked Comey.
However, Rosenstein never had anything personally against Comey, “on the contrary, I admired him personally,” he recently stated.
Comey’s biggest mistake, according to Rosenstein, was “to hold a press conference about an open case, reveal his recommendations and discuss details about the investigation, without the consent of the prosecutors and the attorney general.”
He, of course, was referring to the Hillary Clinton email scandal case.
Rosenstein further stated, “Those actions were not within the range of reasonable decisions.”
Comey has not only proven to have an agenda against Trump both then and now, but he has also proven to be quite vengeful to anyone he deems to have crossed him.
Now, he sounds like a man trapped in a corner looking for a way out, realizing he simply has nowhere to go.
With the announcement on Monday from Attorney General Barr regarding the appointment of U.S. Attorney Durham to look into the origins of the probe, Comey’s time as a pundit may soon be over.
It is not unrealistic to think that most of Comey’s time now will be spent in the chair of a defendant.
