Former FBI Director James Comey, who claims to be a lifelong Republican, explained why he supports President Joe Biden’s reelection over any other Republican candidate, but particularly his former boss Donald Trump.
In an interview with the far-left MSNBC, when asked who he believes should occupy the White House in January 2025, he responded, “Joe Biden.”
“I’m glad he’s willing to serve. It has to be somebody committed to the rule of law, committed to the values of this country,” Comey told host and former Biden White House press secretary Jen Psaki, now an MSNBC host. “And I’m not talking about policy. People can disagree about policy. There are things above those disagreements that all of us should think about the same way.
“The president must be someone who abides by the law and our Constitution. And there’s no one else but Joe Biden,” Comey claimed.
The Epoch Times explained:
Two Democrats, author Marianne Williamson and environmental attorney Robert F. Kennedy Jr., are currently challenging Biden for the 2024 Democratic presidential nomination.
Trump, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, conservative radio presenter Larry Elder, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis have all declared their candidacy for the White House in 2024.
On Monday, it was reported that former Vice President Mike Pence had filed paperwork to challenge Trump for the GOP nomination.
Comey expressed concern that if Trump is reelected, he would be targeted by the former president during “four years of a retribution presidency.”
“He could order the investigation and prosecution of individuals who he sees as enemies. I’m sure I’m on the enemy list,” Comey said. “Because the president constitutionally does oversee the executive branch entirely, which includes the Department of Justice, prosecutors, and investigators, and so he could commission, direct that individuals be pursued.
“He could also direct all kinds of other conduct that people would maybe take to court to try to stop—but who enforces court orders? Mostly the United States Marshals Service, which is part of the executive branch and reports to the president.”
Comey continued: “And so President Trump could say, ‘I don’t care what the Supreme Court says or these district judges say, I’m telling the Marshals Service don’t enforce the court order.’”
“And so our Constitution really does give a rogue president, which is what this would be, tremendous power to destroy,” he added.
Given that special counsel John Durham’s four-year investigation confirmed earlier probes that the FBI, under Comey, launched an investigation into then-candidate Trump’s 2016 campaign on bogus allegations of “collusion” with Russia, Comey’s concerns about being investigated for no good reason are, to say the least, ironic.
Durham concluded that Comey’s FBI relied on “raw, unanalyzed, and uncorroborated intelligence” and that “objective facts demonstrate that the FBI’s handling of key aspects of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation was severely deficient.”
