Kirsters Baish| Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey struck back at President Donald Trump on Monday after it was announced by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that Trump was considering the possibility of revoking security clearances of Deep State operatives. Obviously, Comey was one of those operatives, and boy was he mad.
As we previously reported, Sarah Huckabee Sanders read off the names of those whose security clearances were being considered to be revoked. They included Obama’s former CIA Director John Brennan, former G.W. Bush CIA Director Michael Hayden, Obama’s former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, disgraced former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, as well as Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
It wasn’t much of a surprise that Comey was butt-hurt about the news, and what does anyone who is upset do these days? He took to Twitter to lash out at Trump.
On Monday, James Comey tweeted:
“Thought experiment: Make a list of all the public figures in this country and around the world the current president has criticized.
Ask yourself: ‘Why is Putin missing from the list?’
No responsible American should ever stop asking, ‘Why?'”

The disgraced former FBI Director used his Twitter account just last week to urge his followers to get out there and vote Democrat in the upcoming midterm elections. This guy has totally devoted himself to the Democratic agenda at this point, and he’s all in. He’s promoting all of their regular talking points, such as Vladimir Putin, Russia, Trump bashing. You know, the usual.
On Sunday, Comey desperately pleaded with Democrats, begging the party not to “rush to the Socialist left.” He claimed that he is aware that it’s a losing message. Now he’s beating a dead horse by constantly talking about Trump/Putin matters on his Twitter account. It’s really pretty lame.
It also wasn’t much of a shock that former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who was named among those who are being considered, also knocked the possibility of revoking security clearances, calling it a “very very petty thing to do.”
Fox News reports:
Former FBI Director James Comey on Monday questioned President Trump’s alleged lack of criticism where Russian President Vladimir Putin is concerned, tweeting that “No responsible American should ever stop asking, ‘Why?'”
Earlier in the day on Monday, the President tweeted that he “got along very well” with the Russian President at last week’s joint summit in Helsinki, Finland. Trump wrote on Twitter, “When you hear the Fake News talking negatively about my meeting with President Putin, and all that I gave up, remember, I gave up NOTHING, we merely talked about the future benefits for both countries. Also, we got along very well, which is a good thing, except fir the Corrupt Media!”

Benjamin Wittes, a friend of James Comey, tweeted that Comey doesn’t even have a security clearance for Trump to revoke. “Comey says he was ‘read out’ when he left government as per normal practice,” Wittes wrote in a tweet.
I just texted @Comey asking whether he even has a security clearance to revoke.
“Nope,” he responded. There’s nothing for POTUS to revoke. Comey says he was “read out” when he left government as per normal practice. 1/2
