Greg Thornbury: Comey’s Obligation

Has there ever been a public official who has gone from good guy to bad guy in both the eyes of the Left and the Right—faster and more often—than former FBI Director James Comey? I think not.

Why? It all depends on what he’s saying at the moment.

When news broke that Comey had written a memo and other communications in the aftermath of President Trump’s purported request for him to call off the investigation into Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s contact with Russian officials, the media went into hysterics.

Congressman Chaffetz from Utah, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has written Acting FBI Director McCabe for the documents.

But here’s my question. If such a memo existed, why didn’t Mr. Comey inform Congress on the two recent occasions he testified before them?

Congress, it’s time to make public all documents that are not classified to clear up this whole jumbled affair. You owe it to the American people.
