It’s well documented now that the federal government, through the FBI and DOJ, under Barack Obama, targeted an individual, Donald Trump, who was running for president.
He was accused, without any evidence, of colluding with Russia, among other things.
Then under Joe Biden, Trump has been targeted, individually, many times, with various investigations, a raid on his private home, claims he caused a riot when he asked for a peaceful protest, and much, much more again.
Now James Comey, the fired FBI chief who was in power during many of those attacks on Trump, says that’s not a good thing.
At least, it would not be a good thing when he’s thinking about the prospect of a Trump presidency starting in January 2025.
The past, he doesn’t address.
See his comments, to a leftist on television:
Comey and Psaki are terrified of Trump 2024:
“Think about what four years of a retribution presidency might look like. He could order the investigation and prosecution of individuals who he sees as enemies.”pic.twitter.com/Vh1jsZBfCl

He said, “Think about what four years of a retribution presidency might look like. He (Trump) could order the investigation and prosecution of individuals who he sees as enemies. I’m sure I’m on the enemies list. Because the president does constitutionally oversee the executive branch entirely which includes the Department of Justice, prosecutors and investigators. So he could commission direct that individual be pursued. He could also direct all kinds of conduct that people would maybe take to court to try to stop. But who enforces court orders? Mostly the U.S. Marshal’s Service which is part of the executive branch.”
He said, “President Trump could say I don’t care what the Supreme Court says or these district judges say. I’m telling the Marshal’s Service don’t enforce the court order.”
He said, “I want the American people to stare at the threat that we’re facing, and understand that they cannot take the next election off.”
It was a commentary at Twitchy that pointed out the failure of his arguments.
“James Comey sounds nervous about the idea of another Trump presidency. Almost as if he’s worried Trump might be looking for a little retribution for everything Comey and others put him through while he was president and since.”
The commentary cited Comey’s reference to Trump’s “threat” to the rule of law.
“He as GOT to be kidding us,” Twitchy said. “Someone get this man a mirror. Maybe two. Has he NOT been paying attention to what the Biden DOJ has been doing?”
Also: the side that has spent the last 6 years locking up political opponents is now worried that Republicans might lock up people simply because they are… political opponents. https://t.co/c7QmagVIma

Social media comments included “Isn’t that what u do, Jen?” and “Two coup foot soldiers.” Also, “Almost like what they did to him…”
The irony meters were dinging a lot.
Hey Jen, any reporting on DOJs expanding database of Trump supporters who protested Biden’s election on January 6? Seems like an enemies list…1k and countinghttps://t.co/9Wn2lLoiNM

What Comey is saying is exactly what Biden, Garland, the FBI and District Attorneys across the country have been doing for over two years.

The Democrats are afraid a Republican President will investigate and prosecute them like they have done to Republicans.

So… @Comey admits that a POTUS can unleash the DOJ/IC on political opponents such as, for example, a 2016 presidential candidate?
But @Comey, I was told the guardrails of democracy are strong and people’s rights are protected against such abuse.

IMPORTANT NOTE: “Election denier!” “Science denier!” “Climate-change denier!” “Conspiracy theorist!” And then there’s “hate speech,” “fake news,” “disinformation,” “misinformation,” even something called “MALinformation.” A bizarre new lexicon has been conjured up by America’s elites, the SOLE PURPOSE of which is to discredit and ridicule – and if at all possible, CENSOR ENTIRELY – speech that doesn’t support their increasingly dark and deranged agenda. Tucker Carlson is just the latest.
In the greatest imaginable irony, the nation once boasting the most robust culture of freedom of speech and the press – undergirded by the strongest constitutional protections for those rights – is now ground zero for a total war on free expression.
How could this possibly happen in the United States of America? It’s all explained as never before in the sensational new issue of WND’s critically acclaimed WHISTLEBLOWER magazine, titled “THE ELITES’ ALL-OUT WAR ON FREE SPEECH.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
