Mark Levin: Comey ‘didn’t have the temperament to be a FBI Director’
May 11, 2017
Radio host Mark Levin defended President Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, telling Fox News’ “Hannity” that Trump “did what Barack Obama didn’t have the courage to do … remove an FBI director that didn’t have the temperament to be an FBI Director.”
“The President of the United States followed the Constitution, followed the law, followed the advice of a Deputy Attorney General who won [confirmation] 94-6,” said Levin, referring to Rod Rosenstein.
“[Rosenstein] doesn’t have a political bone in his body,” Levin added. “He writes a memo to the Attorney General [Jeff Sessions] and says, ‘Mr. Attorney General, this director of the FBI, I have to deal with him. He’s my direct report. I don’t trust him. He needs to go.'”
The host of the “Mark Levin Show” dismissed comparisons between Comey’s dismissal and the infamous “Saturday Night Massacre” perpetrated by Richard Nixon at the height of the Watergate scandal.
“We have a lot of legal and historical illiterates posing as TV hosts and commentators,” Levin told host Sean Hannity. “It has nothing to do with Watergate, but of course, the media and the Democrats – one and the same – want it to deal with Watergate.”
Levin, a former chief of staff to Attorney General Edwin Meese under President Ronald Reagan, pointed out that Trump had not ordered “in any respect” an end to the FBI investigation of possible connections between Trump’s campaign and Russian officials. He then turned his attention to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., whom Levin called “the leading demagogue in all of this.”
“Tell me something, Mr. Schumer,” Levin asked rhetorically, “can you name a single Russian, just one, who colluded with Donald Trump and his campaign? Just give us one. One.
“You’ve got intelligence committees who’ve been investigating. You’ve had this interminable federal investigation that’s gone on. Let’s have it.”
Remember this newscast?
Smoke and mirrors folks…these people are sickening. Not six months ago, Schumer was being quoted as say in the Washington Examiner:
New York Sen. Chuck Schumer gave FBI Director James Comey a no-confidence vote in response to Comey’s revelation that the agency has reopened its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.
“I do not have confidence in him any longer,” the likely incoming leader of the Senate Democrats, told Bloomberg.
What is really happening? Like sharks who sense blood in the water, the liberals and RINOS are trying every way they can to destroy this presidency in hopes they can find purchase to impeach him. I may not agree with his method of delivery but the gist of the case for the firing is spot on. Democrats were sitting with raw egg on their face on the Russia connection; so now with the swiftness of a striking adder, they are back in business.
After three or four months of sputtering and holier-than-thou attitude, the assurances by several members of intelligence, and reluctant comments by Democrats who have come out and said they found no Russia/Trump connection, one would think their investigation would have been concluded. But then Dems are being theatrical dimwits.
Shakespeare would be ecstatic and busily writing the next Machiavellian play based on the Democrat performance of Schumer.
