Former FBI Director James Comey was fired by President Trump earlier this year for being a far left hack and refusing to enforce 45’s agenda. Yesterday, Comey took a swipe at Trump on Twitter and it backfired instantly.
Trump sent this message:
Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!

It's good that you're quoting others, rather than speaking from your own expertise here . . . https://t.co/HdLFsY5OTP

A good leader doesn't craft conclusions before all of the facts are in either, unless that leader is in on the scam (in which case they are not as good as they think they might be) https://t.co/p0K8pJX2a0

Lordy, you're right on that "matter!" You didn't take your share of the blame, but you did take too much credit in thinking it was your job to decide not to prosecute! https://t.co/iH84xB5yGq

From America News Hub:
James Comey botched the Hillary Clinton email investigation. There’s no way around that. Not only did Comey appear to have come to a conclusion before he knew the facts, but he rewrote the federal law in his own mind in order to let Hillary off the hook.
More on Comey allowing Hillary Clinton off the hook, per National Review:
There is no way of getting around this: According to Director James Comey (disclosure: a former colleague and longtime friend of mine), Hillary Clinton checked every box required for a felony violation of Section 793(f) of the federal penal code (Title 18): With lawful access to highly classified information she acted with gross negligence in removing and causing it to be removed it from its proper place of custody, and she transmitted it and caused it to be transmitted to others not authorized to have it, in patent violation of her trust. Director Comey even conceded that former Secretary Clinton was “extremely careless” and strongly suggested that her recklessness very likely led to communications (her own and those she corresponded with) being intercepted by foreign intelligence services. Yet, Director Comey recommended against prosecution of the law violations he clearly found on the ground that there was no intent to harm the United States.
In essence, in order to give Mrs. Clinton a pass, the FBI rewrote the statute, inserting an intent element that Congress did not require. The added intent element, moreover, makes no sense: The point of having a statute that criminalizes gross negligence is to underscore that government officials have a special obligation to safeguard national defense secrets; when they fail to carry out that obligation due to gross negligence, they are guilty of serious wrongdoing. The lack of intent to harm our country is irrelevant. People never intend the bad things that happen due to gross negligence.
What a complete joke Comey turned into!
