Former FBI Director James Comey has used his early retirement to send erudite jabs and philosophical barbs towards this current administration and the tangled web they have weaved. With the current state of affairs in our government looking more and more dictatorial, Republicans find themselves cornered as a result of their undemocratic posturing and actions. Comey, watching the agency he fronted slowly get taken to pieces by an administration that looks as guilty as sin, is clearly not interested in playing coy anymore.
All should appreciate the FBI speaking up. I wish more of our leaders would. But take heart: American history shows that, in the long run, weasels and liars never hold the field, so long as good people stand up. Not a lot of schools or streets named for Joe McCarthy.

It’s not just Trump that Comey is talking about, it’s a Congress seemingly willing to give away the keys to our democracy at every turn.
