You won’t believe who James Comey just threw his support behind to beat Trump
Since getting kicked out of the FBI, James Comey has become a major player in the anti-Trump resistance.
There were even rumors he was considering challenging Trump in the 2020 election.
But those rumors were proven false after he threw his support behind somebody you won’t believe to take on Trump.
Comey is all-in for the Democrat Party.
During the 2018 election, he threw his support behind Democrat Rep. Jennifer Wexton who went on to defeat Barbara Comstock in one of the most heated congressional races in the 2018 midterms.
He knocked on doors in support of Wexton and contributed the maximum amount allowed to her campaign.
And now he’s throwing his support behind another Democrat, this time it is one that hopes to take Trump on in 2020.
In his first move of the 2020 elections, Comey and his wife have donated $2,700 each to Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s presidential campaign.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Former FBI Director James Comey and his wife separately donated $2,700 to Democratic Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s presidential campaign, according to Rolling Stone.
The contributions near the $2,800 maximum donation permitted during the primary.
Back around the time of Comey’s firing from the FBI, Klobuchar told Fox9, “I was a friend of Jim Comey in law school, a classmate of his. And while I didn’t agree with him on how we handled the Hillary Clinton investigation, he was respected by the agents that worked with him, respected by law enforcement in Minnesota.”
Comey and his wife previously donated the same amount to Democratic Virginia Rep. Jennifer Wexton, who successfully unseated Rep. Barbara Comstock for Virginia’s 10th congressional district. He also knocked on doors for Wexton’s campaign.”
It isn’t surprising that Comey is upset with President Trump, considering the President fired him.
But Comey’s support for Klobuchar isn’t surprising either, when you consider the two are long-time friends.
Comey has become a hero among many in the Democrat Party for his actions to undermine Trump after he took office by ensuring the release of the anti-Trump Russia dossier.
But some in the party continue to have disdain for him after his strong words for Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server for official government business while she was Secretary of State.
While he let Clinton off the hook, he still made it clear she acted carelessly, which many believe had an effect on the election.
But now, Comey’s gone full bore anti-Trump, and he’s showing no signs he’ll stop working to take down Trump in 2020.
