After the news of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s guilty plea became public, former FBI Director James Comey issued one cryptic tweet.
“‘But (let) justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream’ Amos 5:24,” Comey wrote on Twitter Friday, quoting a verse from the Bible, including a lint of his Instagram page, where he posted a photo of flowing stream with the same verse.
James Kallstrom, former FBI assistant director who worked in the bureau for 27 years, finds Comey’s tweet very clear.
“Anyone with a brain knows what he meant,” James Kallstrom stated. “He thinks he was unjustly brought down, and now justice is going to prevail and show him as some sort of a martyr. Nothing could be further from the truth.”
Kallstrom pointed out that is hypocritical for Comey to act self-righteous.
“He’s a guy who either knows the Bible or thought it would be cool to give that response back, when he is the emperor with no clothes,” he said. “He carried water for the Clinton Foundation and Obama administration, and demoralized the FBI, making a fool of himself in my view — he conducted himself in a way that was not in keeping with the rule of law — and here he is quoting the Bible.”
“Hopefully, justice will roll down on him and his sycophants who threw the bureau under the bus,” Kallstrom continued.
Kallstrom continued to explain that Comey failed to act rightfully regarding many scandals that sweep over Obama administration, especially those regarding the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton scandal.
“He just showed himself as the hypocrite that he is,” Kallstrom said. “He lacks the common sense to realize he’s digging his hole deeper.”
President Donald Trump fired Comey in May, because he believed that Comey was “not able to effectively lead the bureau.”
Few months before Flynn resignation, he departed the Trump administration over the questions about his connections with Russia. Comey claimed that after Flynn departure, President Trump asked him to stop the FBI investigation into Flynn.
And after Comey’s firing, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed special counsel Mueller to continue the investigation into the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Friday, Mueller charged Flynn with “willfully and knowingly” making “false, fictitious and fraudulent statements” about the contact he had with then-Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak.
President Trump said that Flynn pleading guilty does not implicate him or his administration.
“What has been shown is no collusion,” Trump stated Friday. “There has been absolutely no collusion.”
