James Comey refuses to go away quietly.
The fired former FBI Director is teaming up with CNN.
And they have something awful in store that could help remove Trump from office.
Comey’s book “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies & Leadership” is set to be released on April 17th.
The former FBI Director has set up a whirlwind media tour.
And CNN jumped at the chance to host Comey in a town hall even at William and Mary – Comey’s alma mater.
The Hill reports:
“Comey, who was fired by President Trump last May in events that led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller, will also be interviewed by CNN’s Jake Tapper at 4 p.m. on April 19 as part of a book tour that includes interviews with Fox News’s Bret Baier and ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, among others.
Comey slammed Trump just hours after the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe earlier this month, stating Americans will “judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not.”
“Mr. President, the American people will hear my story very soon. And they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not,” Comey tweeted on March 17.
CNN has held dozens of town hall–style events in recent years, dating back to the 2015–2016 presidential primaries. In recent weeks, the network hosted a town hall on gun violence and school shootings following the February mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.”
This event will be nothing short of a Trump ambush.
CNN’s only mission is to remove the President from office.
So they filter all their “news” through those lenses.
CNN hopes Comey will drop bombshells about the Russia investigation or his firing that will help build the public case that Trump is a corrupt thug who obstructed justice and must be impeached immediately.
They want to drive negative news coverage and play up the angle that the GOP won’t restrain Trump so Americans must elect Democrats in the fall if they want to check Trump’s impulses.
This is not journalism or covering the news.
It is staging the news to drive a narrative.
And in this case, their narrative is attacking democracy by trying to remove Donald Trump from office.
Comey – like porn star Stormy Daniels – is only of interest to CNN in as much as they can use them to hurt Trump politically.
