American Thinker: In an act of delicious irony, James “The Liar” Comey will remind us on 20/20 that in his new book, A Higher Loyalty, he compares President Trump and his alleged demands for loyalty to that required by a crime boss. Comey writes:
“The demand was like Sammy the Bull’s Cosa Nostra induction ceremony,” referring to Salvatore “Sammy the Bull” Gravano, a former leader of the Gambino crime family, whose testimony ultimately helped convict mob boss John Gotti.
This extension of his 15 minutes of fame to 20/20 comes soon after the man he got appointed as special counsel, Robert Mueller, shredded the 4th Amendment to the Constitution and the attorney-client privilege by raiding the offices of Trump attorney Michael Cohen looking for anything that might justify Mueller’s existence after a failed Russia collusion investigation, taking everything except the towels in Cohen’s hotel room.
No doubt Gravano would have been proud of this thuggish action, one not dissimilar to the no-knock raid on Paul Manafort and his family as they slept, another cooperating witness, in stark contrast to the FBI’s treatment of Hillary Clinton:
Everything that has happened in the Trump probe stands out against a backdrop of leniency in the Clinton investigation. While Mueller has prosecuted two Trump associates for lying to the FBI, the Obama Justice Department gave a pass to Mrs. Clinton and her subordinates, who gave the FBI misinformation about such key matters as whether Clinton understood markings in classified documents and whether her aides knew about her homebrew server system during their State Department service. Mueller’s team conducted a predawn raid at gunpoint in executing a search warrant on Paul Manafort’s home while Manafort was cooperating with congressional committees. When it came to the Clinton case, though, the Justice Department not only eschewed search warrants, or even mere subpoenas, but they never even took possession of the DNC server alleged to have been hacked by Russian operatives.
Comey has no problem with being loyal to Robert Mueller, who conducts his business in much the same way as Gravano did. In the Manafort raid, Mueller also violated attorney-client privilege, a pattern from his checkered past of shoddy legal work in which the end justified the means: MORE
