Donald Trump and his supporters have known it for some time: There are folks out there who just want to get the former President – whatever getting “got” looks like.
These are the never-Trumpers; those who’ve been showing the symptoms of the barely-fictional affliction known as Trump Derangement Syndrome.
One such federal agitator is James Comey, former head of the FBI, whose involvement with the FISA warrant process surrounding the thoroughly-debunked “Steele Dossier” has cast a pall of sheer partisanship over his career.
Now, as if to further reiterate that point, Comey is openly lauding the charges against the former Commander in Chief.
Former FBI Director James Comey praised the unprecedented indictment of former President Trump by a Manhattan grand jury on Thursday, by tweeting, “It’s been a good day.”
Trump was indicted after Manhattan District Attorney Alivn Bragg had been investigating Trump for hush money payments made leading up to the 2016 presidential election.
Comey, who was fired by Trump in 2017 and one of the central figures involved in the Russia collusion case against Trump and the Steele dossier, echoed comments made by other Trump opponents on Twitter.
Similarly to the RussiaGate ruse, Trump is denying any wrongdoing in the matter:
Trump has repeatedly denied wrongdoing with regard to the payments made to Daniels and McDougal, and has repeatedly said the payments were “not a campaign violation,” but rather a “simple private transaction.”
Comey’s comments came just ahead of some deplorable giddiness from a number of American late-night television hosts, in which Trump’s indictment – a dark day for American history – was transformed into an ice-cream party and a standing ovation.
