President Donald Trump has yet again garnered the scorn of the liberal Left, but this time, it’s a little bit different. The firing of James Comey has underlined the hypocrisy of the Democratic party. Just a few weeks ago, democrats were calling for Comey to be fired, and Hillary Clinton even went so far as to blame Comey for her election loss. They wanted Comey gone, but now they are changing their tune.
According to Clinton, Comey’s reopening of the case regarding her mishandling of classified information put the brakes on her bid for the presidency.
Countless democrats have seized the opportunity to attack President Trump for firing Comey, and some, like Oregon senator and democrat Ron Wyder, have gone out of their way to make unsavory suggestions about the president’s intentions.
As reported, “Donald Trump’s decision to fire him now, in the midst of an investigation into Trump associates and their ties to Russia, is outrageous.There can be no question that a fully independent special counsel must be appointed to lead this investigation.”
Countless other democrats, like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, have openly condemned Trump for firing Comey–even after they themselves insinuated he was no longer fit for the position just a few months ago.
Schumer previously stated, ““I do not have confidence in him any longer,” while discussing the former FBI Director. Pelosi also reportedly said to CNN last year, “Maybe [Comey’s] not in the right job.”
Now, they’ve got their claws out. Pelosi recently commented that the firing of James Comey “raises the ghosts of some of the worst Executive Branch abuses.” Schumer describd the firing as a “big mistake.”
Do you think they’d be this upset if Hillary Clinton had fired him?
