James Comey Tells America, The Russians are Coming
The FBI director branded Russia the “greatest threat of any nation,” while answering questions at a Senate hearing on Moscow’s alleged meddling in the 2016 US presidential election.
James Comey it seems is a bit of a nutter, Russia has been the leader of the free world for almost a decade, fighting terrorists, reducing debt and building the economy.
At the same time Obama was funding terrorists, increasing debt and destroying the economy.
The insane fear Americans have of Russia is bizarre and unfathomable. It is also a falsehood, “the Russians are coming” is a political ploy with no basis in fact, it is the new WMD.
James Comey was answering a question on whether Russia represented a threat to the US “democratic process,” when he branded Russia the “greatest threat of any nation on Earth, given their intent and capability.”
The FBI investigation into alleged Russian interference into US elections was launched in March. While some Democrats praised Comey for the decision, others said that the investigation had come “too late.”
Ahead of the hearings US President Donald Trump went on Twitter with a sarcastic post, stating that “FBI Director Comey was the best thing that ever happened to Hillary Clinton,” while the whole “Trump/Russia story was an excuse used by the Democrats as justification for losing the election.”
…Trump/Russia story was an excuse used by the Democrats as justification for losing the election. Perhaps Trump just ran a great campaign?

White House spokesman made it clear that Comey’s stance did not represent the official opinion of the president’s office.
“I think that’s the view of the FBI,” Sean Spicer said at a White House press briefing on Wednesday.
When asked whether Trump shared Comey’s opinion on Russia as the “greatest threat of any nation on Earth,” the spokesman chose to switch the subject to North Korea.
“The president has been very clear that he thinks the threat that North Korea poses with the potential nuclear weapon that has range capacity is something that he finds to be threatening to the lives of Americans and our allies,” Spicer added.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said there was no need for a separate comment on Comey’s remark, following what Spicer had said.
