James Comey Promises To Move To New Zealand If Trump Wins In 2020

James Comey sat for an interview with former Bush staffer and current MSNBC host Nicole Wallace today.

They bashed Trump and Bill Barr, as liberals usually do, but then Comey made a promise all Americans will hold him too – if Trump wins he will move to New Zealand.

Comey truly is the most hated man in America and the only thing he can do to make up for the multiple debacles he caused is to move. (See video below.)

Wallace: ARE YOU SURPRISED HE NOW HAS AN ALLY IN THE EFFORT TO ATTACK THE ORGANIZATION IN WILLIAM BARR , WHO SEEMS VERY COMFORTABLE MEDDLING IN THE INVESTIGATION BEING…

Comey: I CAN’T TELL WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE ATTORNEY GENERAL AND THAT INVESTIGATION. I WAS DEEPLY CONCERNED I SOME THINGS HE SAID EARLY ON ABOUT USING THE WORD SPYING AND SAYING THERE ARE THINGS THAT DON’T MAKE SENSE, AND AT THE TIME I SAID, THAT IS NOT THE WAY IT OPERATES. IF THERE IS A WE REASON TO PROBE SOMETHING, THEN YOU SHUT UP AND SHARE THE FACTS. I STILL FEEL THAT WAY. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING AT, SO I’M NOT IN A POSITION TO SAY YOU SHOULD NOT INVESTIGATE. IF YOU ARE GOING TO INVESTIGATE, INVESTIGATE. JOHN DURHAM HAS A STRONG REPUTATION. SOMEONE FOR YEARS I THOUGHT WAS AN EXCELLENT PROSECUTOR. I CANNOT TELL WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. I WOULD HOPE THAT MR. DURHAM WILL DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO PROTECT HIS REPUTATION FROM BEING DAMAGED BY THOSE IN LEADERSHIP AND THE MOST IMPORTANT WAY TO DO THAT IS GIVE US TRANSPARENCY. I AM NOT WORRIED ABOUT A SINGLE THING IN CONNECTION WITH ANY OF THE MATTERS UNDER INVESTIGATION. GATHER THE FACTS. WRITE A REPORT, AND SHARE IT WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. PLEASE DO THAT BECAUSE ALL THE STUFF IN THE MEDIA WITH ATTORNEY GENERAL SAME STUFF DOESN’T JUST JIVE, IT IS AN ATTACK ON THE INTEGRITY OF THE INSTITUTION, WHICH HE IS SUPPOSED TO BE LEADING. WAY TO PROTECT THAT IS SHOW THE FOLKS THE FACTS. LAY IT OUT. DON’T LEAK IT OUT, GIVE IT OUT. AND I’M CONFIDENT THAT WHEN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SEE THE PICTURE OF WHY WE DID WHAT WE DID, THEIR CONFIDENCE IN THE INSTITUTION WILL BE MAINTAINED, RESTORED, AND PROTECTED. [APPLAUSE]

Wallace: ONE OF THE THINGS THAT LEAKED OUT ABOUT THAT INVESTIGATION, AND I WONDER IF YOU THINK MR. DURHAM HAS AN OBLIGATION TO CLARIFY THIS, IS IT IS CRIMINAL IN NATURE AND OPERATE WHAT CRIMES COULD HAVE BEEN COMMITTED? — IN NATURE. WHAT CRIMES COULD HAVE BEEN COMMITTED?

Comey: I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO THINK OF THAT. FIRST, IS IT TRUE AT ALL? THERE IS ALL KINDS OF STUFF PUSHED OUT OF THIS JUSTICE DEPARTMENT BY ANONYMOUS PEOPLE WHICH TURNED OUT NOT TO BE TRUE, SO I DON’T KNOW THAT. IT IS ALSO POSSIBLE THAT WHAT HAPPENED TO SOMETHING LIKE THIS, WHEN THE IG HAS BEEN LOOKING AT THE FBI’S USE OF THE PHIS AUTHORITIES, IF THEY COME ACROSS SOMEONE WHO THEY MIGHT HAVE BOUGHT MADE A FALSE DOCUMENT, THEY WILL REFER THAT TO THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE FOR INVESTIGATION. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT WAS REFERRED TO LOOK AT. I JUST DON’T KNOW. HERE IS WHAT I DO THINK. AGAIN, THIS KIND OF NEWS REPORTING IS DAMAGING TO THE CREDIBILITY OF THE INSTITUTION. FROM BOTH DIRECTIONS. IT ALLOWS PEOPLE FROM ONE SIDE TO SAY BILL BARR HAS ENGAGED SOME INAPPROPRIATE EFFORT TO DISTRACT FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP’S PROBLEMS OR TO CARRY WATER FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP. THAT IS BAD. IT COMES FROM THE OTHER SIDE ALSO SAYING, A-HA, THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE IS DISCOVERING THE FBI AND CIA ARE CORRUPT. BOTH OF THOSE THINGS ARE BAD, SO IF YOU RUN THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, YOU OUGHT TO STARE AT THE POLICY THAT ALLOWS YOU TO OFFER TRANSPARENCY TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHEN THERE IS STRONG PUBLIC INTEREST. WE DON’T TALK ABOUT PENDING INVESTIGATIONS MUCH EXCEPT WHEN IT MATTERS MOST. THIS STRIKES ME AS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE ATTORNEY GENERAL TO SAY, FOLKS, HERE IS WHAT WE ARE INVESTIGATING TO CLEAR THAT UP. IT IS UNFORTUNATE SOMEONE TALK TO THE MEDIA, OK, NOW CLEARED UP AND OFFER TRANSPARENCY.

Wallace: LET’S TALK ABOUT YOU. THERE WAS RECENTLY A NEW YORK TIMES ARTICLE — I DON’T WANT TO SUMMARIZE IT, BUT YOU ARE STANDING IN YOUR LIVING ROOM IN THE PICTURE. YOU…

Comey: CHANGE IN THE ADMINISTRATION? YES. I AM OPTIMISTIC THAT EVEN IF THERE IS NOT IN IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDING, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE GOING TO PASS JUDGMENT ON WHAT KIND OF COUNTRY WE WANT TO BE. WE HAVE STRONG DISAGREEMENT ON POLICY GROUNDS.

I DON’T CARE WHAT YOUR VIEWS ARE. HER PEW ARTICULATE AND DEFEND AND LISTEN. THAT’S IMPORTANT. BUT WE HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON AND I SAID IT WITH THE FIRST QUESTION YOU ASKED.

WE HAVE A SET OF VALUES THAT HOLD THIS PLACE TOGETHER. I TRIED TO EXPLAIN TO KIDS SOMETHING THAT MOST OF YOU KNOW, WE SHOULDN’T EXIST. WE DON’T HAVE THE NORMAL HUMAN GLUE THAT HOLDS A COUNTRY TOGETHER. COMMON ANCESTRY, LANGUAGE, FAITH.

WE HAVE NOTHING IN COMMON EXCEPT A SET OF VALUES. THAT IS THE GLUE THAT HOLDS REPUBLICANS, DEMOCRATS, INDEPENDENTS TOGETHER. I THINK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE ALERT TO THE THREAT THAT IS ABOVE OUR POLICY DISAGREEMENTS. GUNS ARE IMPORTANT. IMMIGRATION, ABORTION, TAXES. ABOVE THAT IS SOMETHING WE HAVE IN COMMON. OUR LEADERS CANNOT BE PEOPLE WHO LIE ALL THE TIME. THEY JUST CAN’T. I HOPE PEOPLE SEE THAT IS TRUE WHETHER THEY ARE REPUBLICANS OR DEMOCRATS. Show Less Text

Wallace: WHAT IF HE WINS AGAIN? WILL HE — WILL YOU STILL BELIEVE THAT?

Comey: FROM MY NEW HOME IN NEW ZEALAND, I WILL — [LAUGHTER] I STILL WILL BELIEVE IN AMERICA.
