James Comey is Now Apparently Trying to Meddle in the 2018 Election

James Comey

James Comey, the disgraced former FBI director who was coldly fired early into Trump’s presidency before being exposed for not only leaking his personal memos to the press but for seemingly trying to influence the outcome of the 2016 election, is now shamelessly trying to direct voters how to vote in 2018.

The upcoming midterm elections are vital for Democrats, who lost control of all three branches of government in 2016 on top of experiencing the most humiliating Presidential loss in our nation’s history.

Since then, the party has been coming apart at the seams, finding no central leadership and faced with scandal upon scandal following the election, in which James Comey played no small role.

On top of his Clinton email scandal theatrics on the eve of the election, the June Inspector General’s report also found that he was “insubordinate” and defied authority during his time as the director of the FBI.

The Daily Caller says that despite this recent damning revelation, he has not refrained from adding his useless commentary to Trump’s performance in Russia as well as the upcoming midterms:

Former FBI Director James Comey said that “all who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats” and that Republicans have been “incapable” in a Tuesday tweet.

“This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that ‘Ambition must … counteract ambition.’ All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall. Policy differences don’t matter right now. History has its eyes on us,” Comey tweeted on Tuesday.

Comey, who was previously a registered Republican, has blasted President Donald Trump’s handling of the Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, stating that Trump “stood on foreign soil next to a murderous lying thug and refused to back his own country” in a Monday tweet.

Right…because it went so well the last time he tried to ensure the country would vote Democrat. Keep talkin’ Comey, maybe you’ll inadvertently ensure a Republican victory in 2018, too!

In Georgia, Pence Makes Ugly Dig Directed at Trump

It’s safe to say these two won’t be on the 2024 ticket together.

Tonight, the race for the Georgia governor’s office will continue, as incumbent Republican Brian Kemp faces primary challenger and fellow Republican David Perdue, in a contest with implications far beyond the Peach State.

The race has been billed as a bit of a 2024 preview, if only vicariously, as former President Donald Trump has endorsed Perdue while former Vice President Mike Pence has endorsed Kemp.

As the primary election neared, Pence wasn’t shy about taking some not-so-subtle shots at the former Commander in Chief, either.

On the eve of Georgia’s primary election, former Vice President Mike Pence had a forward-looking message of support for renominating Republican Gov. Brian Kemp.

“When you say yes to Governor Brian Kemp tomorrow, you will send a deafening message all across America that the Republican Party is the party of the future,” said Pence, speaking to a crowd of a few hundred in an airport hangar north of Atlanta on Monday.

Pence’s appearance was an implicit rebuke of former running mate Donald Trump, who has endorsed Kemp’s primary opponent, David Perdue. Pence did not make a direct mention of the former President nor respond to the relentless attacks Trump has leveled against Kemp. But his appearance at the rally the day before the election spoke volumes.

And then:

“When Brian Kemp called me and asked me to come out here and be with all of you, I said yes in a heartbeat,” Pence said.

Pence has been a bit coy, (and rather vague), about his potential plans for a 2024 campaign, and Trump has been quite vocal about the possibility of running against his former veep.

USA Begins Planning to Send Troops to Kyiv

Interesting…

Published

For weeks now, the world has been forced to sit back and watch the atrocities occurring in Ukraine with little to no recourse.  This was due largely to Vladimir Putin’s continued threats of a nuclear strike against anyone who might decide to interfere directly, including the United States, NATO, or other western powers.

Furthermore, US President Joe Biden has been clear:  There is no desire to have American troops squaring off with Russians directly, at the risk of conjuring World War III.

Yet still it appears as though some US troops will be making the journey to Ukraine…at least in a very limited manner.

Plans to send U.S. forces back into Ukraine to guard the recently reopened American Embassy in Kyiv are “underway at a relatively low level,” Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Monday.

The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday that officials are mulling plans to send special forces to Kyiv to guard the U.S. Embassy. The effort is a delicate one, as it requires balancing the safety of American diplomats while avoiding what Russia could see as an escalation.

“Some of the things that may have been out there in the media, those are planning efforts that are underway at a relatively low level,” Milley told reporters at the Pentagon, seeming to refer to the Journal’s report.

There was no definitive timeline for the move.

Such plans “have not yet made it to [Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin] or myself for that matter, for refinement of courses of action and what’s needed,” he noted.

Milley would go on to suggest that any such move would require the approval of the President himself.
