Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Powerlineblog.com: “Comey vs. the world”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Eventually the “holier than thou” find themselves at loggerheads with the rest of the world. Call it the revenge of the “thous.”

In James Comey’s mind, no one is as holy as he is. People he used to respect, like Rod Rosenstein and William Barr, certainly aren’t. President Trump ate their souls. Comey admits the same thing nearly happened to him, but he was holy enough to pull back from the brink. The fact that Trump fired him helped.

Now, Comey finds himself at odds with former associates on the anti-Trump side of the divide. Loretta Lynch, the Attorney General under Obama, has testified that Comey mischaracterized her statements to him when he repeatedly testified under oath that Lynch instructed him to call the Hillary Clinton email probe a “matter” instead of an “investigation.” House Judiciary Committee ranking member released Lynch’s testimony to this effect yesterday.

Comey has said that Lynch’s alleged instruction caused him to question her independence. This contributed to his decision to hold that famous July 2016 press conference in which he basically made the case against Hillary Clinton and then backed away from prosecuting it. Lynch clearly believes that Comey twisted her words to create a pretext for stealing the show with a press conference that injured Hillary.

Comey is also at odds with John Brennan over the Steele dossier. On May 23, 2017, Brennan testified under oath to the House Intelligence Committee that the Steele dossier “wasn’t part of the corpus of intelligence information that we had; it was not in any way used as a basis for the Intelligence Community Assessment that was done.” However, according to former Rep. Tre Gowdy, Comey stated in an email written during the relevant time period that “Brennan is insisting the [dossier] be included in the intel assessment.”
