    Full article at link. This one really goes into the details of Comey's history and his thoughts on the election / investigation. It also talks about the time, as a child, Comey was taken hostage by a gunman.

    If there is any justice in this world, Comey will end up in the clink for his crimes.

    Comey did admit to leaking information on live television.

    James Comey lives his life under the assumption of "the rules are for thee, not for me", and people wonder why everyone cheered when Stephen Colbert announced James Comey had been fired. Few firings have ever been more deserved than James Comey's.

    Is Comey rationalizing his firing by saying that working for the Trump admin couldn't have been productive? Or something to that effect?

    Because sour grapes doesn't mean "jealous" or "angry" or "spiteful" or those kinds of things. It means that you failed to get the grapes, but you b.s. yourself that if you had gotten them, they would have been sour anyway.

    I wonder why he hasn't been charged for leaking. It seems like only Trump defenders know the law.

    I agree. He stole to 2016 presidential election from the Dems with his BULLSHIT memo.

    Again, that is not the meaning of "sour grapes."

    The fact that people actually believe the whole pee tape thing without a shred of evidence while thinking they are above fake news is disconcerting.

    People believe because of Christopher Steeles rep as the former head of MI6s Russian arm. Steele gathered raw intel from sources he accumulated over years working as a part of MI6.

    For example, Sergei Skripal was an associate of a member of one of Steeles businesses . Skripal is named in the Steele report .The same Skripal who was attacked by Russians with a nerve agent.

    While all of Steeles sources are not likely to be true seeing as how its raw data, some have already been verified independently . Also, Steeles work was being corroborated back in the US by the USIC.

    So while we can't say for certain Steele is correct about the existence of a tape of sexual deviance, we know Steele to be more trustworthy than Russian troll farms who push false narratives to sow discord in American society
