James Comey Says He’ll Move to New Zealand if Trump Wins Re-Election
Former FBI Director and anti-Trump political advocate James Comey said he’s planning on moving to New Zealand in the event that Donald Trump wins re-election in the 2020 Presidential Election.
Comey was speaking at the annual Politicon conference, held this year in Nashville, Tennessee.
“What if he wins again, will you still believe that?”
“I will… From my new home in New Zealand, I will still believe in America.”
Some Americans wouldn’t exactly mind seeing the former FBI director depart the country to seek greener pastures down under. Although he’s probably unlikely to follow through on his moving plans in the event of a Trump victory, placing himself in the same category as various liberal celebrities who said they’d leave the country if Trump won.
Comey generally used his appearance at the event to bemoan the state of federal law enforcement under the Trump administration, taking great offense at ongoing investigations under Bill Barr’s Justice Department into partisan operations to undermine the Trump campaign during the 2016 Presidential election.
He was given a softball interview by Nicole Wallace, a former Bush administration operative.
Comey has fallen off the map after making himself an intense partisan advocate against President Donald Trump, an unprecedented role for a former head of the FBI. The whopping failure of the Mueller report to produce the long-awaited “bombshell” sought by liberals to finally take down Donald Trump seems to have dimmed his star.
The former defense contracting lobbyist claimed Mueller’s report was damning to the President, supposedly demonstrating the Russian interference conspiracy theory and Presidential obstruction of justice as factual.
It’s doubtful if Comey and other infamous Swamp bureaucrats such as John Brennan will ever move on from the conspiracy theory asserting a grand scheme between President Trump and the Russian government to “hack” the 2016 election.
