John McCain has lost his mind.
He was asked to comment about FBI Director James Comey who was recently featured in Time’s 100 Most Influential People list. His comments left me in utter confusion.
“Integrity is a word that doesn’t get used a lot in Washington anymore,” McCain wrote for the feature, which was published Thursday. “But that is the quality that has defined James Comey’s service to our nation.”
McCain wrote that the FBI director “followed the law, spoke the truth and did what he believed was right” no matter the circumstances.
“Shifting political winds have blown criticism James Comey’s way from different partisan directions,” the Republican senator wrote. “But his independence has never faltered. His integrity has never wavered. And I know that in the pursuit of justice, it never will.”
This is a man (Comey) who allowed a criminal, Hillary Clinton, avoid prosecution. He purposely mishandled the case in order to botch it.
He is a man that couldn’t keep his own FBI from leaking and almost commiting a complete mutiny.
The last word anyone should use to describe Comey is integrity – unless “deplete of” precedes it.
