Flipflopping Dems used to be big Comey fans, but now they’re freaking out

Flipflopping Dems used to be big Comey fans, but now they’re freaking out October 31, 2016

Remember when FBI director James Comey used to be the “paragon of virtue?” At least that’s what Democrats said, after he failed to prosecute Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information.  But Comey, who was once so praised by everyone in the Democratic Party, now he is going against their grain – by doing the RIGHT THING.

Now, you guessed it, he’s suddenly being called corrupt?

The bureau boss is now the target of barbed Democratic attacks for his decision to notify lawmakers Friday that investigators were reviewing newly discovered emails related to the Hillary Clinton server case. And some of the same Democrats who over the summer defended Comey in the face of Republican pressure have emerged as his toughest critics.

Topping that list is Harry Reid, the Senate minority leader who fired off a letter over the weekend to Comey informing him his actions may have violated a federal law known as the Hatch Act, “which bars FBI officials from using their official authority to influence an election.”

Reid accused Comey of a “double-standard” in his treatment of sensitive information, saying: “Through your partisan actions, you may have broken the law.”

Because he stood up and did the right thing! Crazy!!

Also, Nancy Pelosi called Comey a “great man” just recently, but now she’s saying “The public interest would be served by the FBI providing the facts, rather than allowing Republicans to stoke innuendo and falsehoods 11 days away from a presidential election.”

This New York newspaper literally called him a Mad Bomber:

The hypocrisy is OUTRAGEOUS, but thank you, James Comey, for doing the right thing.
