    Comey’s decision had a negative impact on Clinton’s candidacy. Trump has exposed the depth of corruption in the GOP, which we would not have known otherwise. This is painful lesson, and it could have been a lot worse.

    LOL, Popped-Collar Dude is back, he always looks like the light hurts his eyes.

    Comey
    Is the reason why we living in this nightmare two handed this to Trump on a silver platter and then turned around and was fired by Hitler Trump Karma came and bit him for being loyal to a tyrant.

    Is it me or does Michael Schmidt look confused as people are asking him questions? Maybe he was really sleepy that day.

    the real jack ryan is even more of a boy scout

  9. Bill Brown on November 6, 2020 at 11:23 pm

    Like in the CIA, the FBI any supposed to be telling their spouses about "classified" things & ppl who are NOT charged–are classified as DON’T TALK about it

  10. Ris'above w. Grace on November 6, 2020 at 11:24 pm

    Hiding hilary emails

  11. Kr@bbyPatty on November 6, 2020 at 11:25 pm

    Comey is responsible for this trump mess. Boooohooo!

  12. SkyGemini on November 6, 2020 at 11:26 pm

    Let this be a lesson to you guys: Listen to your wife, dammit!

  13. debidaisy M. on November 6, 2020 at 11:28 pm

    DJT’s 3 achievements
    Fired FBI Dircetor Comey
    Gutted Taxes for Corporations and wealthy
    Packed the federal and Supreme Court

  14. jean reynolds on November 6, 2020 at 11:29 pm

    Hilliary should sue Comey’s for everything he has. He is deaf, dump, and blind! So sorry Hilliary for stupid men. The virus would poetic justice.

  15. Grogery 1 on November 6, 2020 at 11:31 pm

    For some time now I have suspected that Comey didn’t want a Trump presidency but wanted a Republican House majority to protect from a Clinton presidency. He tried to act with the wisdom of Solomon but instead had all the finesse of Bobo the clown.

  16. Monica Matthews on November 6, 2020 at 11:32 pm

    He knew the emails he found on weenier’s computer was the same emails that he saw already but he wanted to spite Hilary Clinton because he really wanted to charge her.

  17. lopezb on November 6, 2020 at 11:32 pm

    And Giuliani is trying to repeat. Giuliani was involved in the first delay and we have NEVER found out the truth on NY FBI.

  18. Martin Charles Pitt-Bradley on November 6, 2020 at 11:32 pm

    Two bad choices, so he picked the worse one

  19. Dr Y Zhao on November 6, 2020 at 11:34 pm

    What he did was unforgivable.

  20. America Lost on November 6, 2020 at 11:35 pm

    Jim Comey is a traitor to America

  21. Grace on November 6, 2020 at 11:36 pm

    Comey deserves everything he gets. He caused this travesty to Americans. Because of Comey many Americans have died. Why? Because he helped the Orange Hitler steal the election. A monster that has blood on his hands. We all have Comey to thank. Comey is also responsible for all the deaths in America by Covid.

  22. Judy DEBonis on November 6, 2020 at 11:36 pm

    JAMES COMEY’S WAS SO WRONG STICKING UP FOR THE BULLY

  23. Helma on November 6, 2020 at 11:39 pm

    I think we are forgetting some details?
    #cozybear. Look the date https://youtu.be/ZSFMiw0MUJM

  24. Conny Bartels on November 6, 2020 at 11:41 pm

    Comey not listening to his wife and not realizing the impact. He gave Drumpf the Presidency. What a stupid man!!

  25. Tom Martin on November 6, 2020 at 11:41 pm

    34% of the people who attended Trump’s rally yesterday in Rome, Georgia were NOT REPUBLICANS! Democrats have shot themselves in the foot by caving in to the far left.

  26. Tiger Wong on November 6, 2020 at 11:41 pm

    Comey is the SOB that put trump in the White House.

  27. Liz Butler on November 6, 2020 at 11:42 pm

    God made him do it. Hehehe

  28. Aggie Schoonover on November 6, 2020 at 11:43 pm

    Comey wanted Trump to win. Do not forget that he also knew there were allegations against Trump that could impact the election, and he failed to disclose them. Comey might not have known how incompetent, abusive, and dangerous Trump was, but he wanted him to win.

  29. Jennifer Marie Brissett on November 6, 2020 at 11:45 pm

    Comey is going down in history with Dr. Mudd. He KNEW that making this statement was inherently political. He KNEW the FBI is not supposed to interfere with elections. I’m not gonna judge him on his character because I don’t know the man. But I AM gonna judge him on his actions and this was one of the stupidest things I’ve seen a grown man do.

  30. oceanspear on November 6, 2020 at 11:46 pm

    comey knew exactlywhat he was doing.. no excuse

  31. Marc F. Nielssen on November 6, 2020 at 11:47 pm

    Trump is deeply indebted to Comey.
    So obviously, Trump fired him.

  32. JM F on November 6, 2020 at 11:47 pm

    joe is so rude and matcho he never let his wife talking and cutting of off all the time. just a rep match. ok this the morning joe show but still it is just about him this guy Ego is on top of the roof

  33. Renee B. on November 6, 2020 at 11:47 pm

    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Comey only wanted to see his own viewpoint, not to mention he’s a lifelong republican. I don’t feel bad he got fired….he helped Trump lead hundreds of thousands of Americans to their deaths. Thanks Comey! Glad you’re sitting this election out!

  35. J O on November 6, 2020 at 11:52 pm

    Comey deserves the humiliation from Trump

  36. julio70585 on November 6, 2020 at 11:52 pm

    Mueller & Comey failed America. Comey gave trump the presidency and mueller saved trump from indictment.

  37. Stephen Chisadza on November 6, 2020 at 11:54 pm

    Didn’t listen to his wife because he was a Republican jerk

  38. Terrence Bryant on November 6, 2020 at 11:55 pm

    He helped this lunatic get into office along with Democrats not believing their vote would be needed. Plus why was he discussing classified information with his wife.

  39. One Term Turd on November 6, 2020 at 11:55 pm

    who cares at this point?

  40. Patrick Glass on November 6, 2020 at 11:56 pm

    Michael – Excellent! Thank you. Now LIES, DISORDER & CHAOS – DIVISIVENESS. There’s NO COMFORT in Trump’s Lackey Party.
    The Congress Republican Party was TOTALLY COMPLICIT – Enabling of TRUMPISM.
    Vote: DEMOCRAT DOWN THE BALLOT. So RENEW the system and ‘MAKE AMERICA SANE AGAIN’.

  41. garzz58 on November 6, 2020 at 11:56 pm

    Comey wanted to help Trump, but Trump screwed him in the end. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

  42. paulo1901 on November 6, 2020 at 11:59 pm

    Comey gave us Trump! He got what he deserved,…

  43. Sam Tradder on November 6, 2020 at 11:59 pm

    They say karma is a witch. It sure seems to be, in that Comey got his payback from the grand trumpet !!!!

  44. Lala Ivey on November 6, 2020 at 11:59 pm

    Comey discussed an ongoing investigation before it was completed He is a criminal!!!

  45. Jeremy Hoe on November 7, 2020 at 12:02 am

    Jim Comey was a spoiler to come out the info at the 11th hour. Yes, Comey pave the way for Donald Trump. Now there are so many emails by Trump what can you guys do.

  46. Daniela Gioseffi on November 7, 2020 at 12:02 am

    It’s difficult to forgive James Comey for his Oct. surprise that wrecked Hillary’s election. The mess that followed made by Trumpistan is such an ongoing disaster!!! The Electoral College vote was stolen by Robert Mercer, Breitbart, Cambridge Analytica, Billionaire’s and Ballot Bandits by Greg Palast. Hillary sill won the popular vote. The ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTE WAS STOLEN. It was NOT all Comey’s fault. Grow up and tell more truth about Robert Mercer and TRUMPING DEMOCRACY and BILLIONAIRES AND BALLOT BANDITS by GREG PALAST.

  47. Edward Clay on November 7, 2020 at 12:03 am

    This is the burden comey has to carry on his shoulders for the rest of his life! Awful just awful.

  48. Conny Bartels on November 7, 2020 at 12:05 am

    There’s no excuse for Comey’s actions and behavior.

  49. Edmundo P on November 7, 2020 at 12:07 am

    Comey> Covid 2016.

  50. Blessed One on November 7, 2020 at 12:07 am

    Comey is partly responsible for what America is going through today. He delivered the election to the man who eventually fired him, rubbished him and now wants him to be jailed.
