Today it the big day that the anxiously awaited DOJ Inspector General’s report is to be publicly released and by all early accounts, it is going to be particularly critical of former FBI director James Comey.
President Trump has been under an unrelenting attack ever since Comey was fired, the worst of it coming from St. Jim’s longtime buddy and mentor, Robert “Bob” Mueller and his sweeping investigation into the POTUS and all of his associated. Mueller has a clear conflict of interest and never should have been appointed as special counsel due to his bias and relationship with Comey who has in a bizarre manner, become a hero to the left after they all wanted him strung up by his testicles for his conduct in reopening the Clinton email probe right before the election.
But a funny thing happened on the way to Comey’s canonization, his ballyhooed media tour to promote his book “A Higher Loyalty” fell flat and the showboat himself has been keeping such a low profile as of late that his face might as well be appearing on milk cartons.
One is beginning to get the idea that the Horowitz report is going to open Comey to renewed criticism from Team Hillary and the schizophrenic Resistance.
Former Clinton campaign manager John Podesta has slithered out and lobbed the first grenade at Comey who he is accusing of blowing the election for the Democrats.

Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chairman on Thursday excoriated fired FBI Director James Comey, saying there is “good evidence” that his actions in the final days of the 2016 presidential campaign “blew the election” for Democrats.
“I’m not going to defend Jim Comey. I criticized him from the day he dropped a letter to [lawmakers] … right before the election,” John Podesta said during an interview on The Hill’s new morning TV show, “Rising.”
“He refused to take the advice of senior people in the Justice Department, so I’m not going to defend him,” Podesta told co-host Krystal Ball just hours before the release of a Justice Department inspector general report. Observers expect that report to be critical Comey’s leadership of the FBI, including his decision to announce a reopening of the Clinton email investigation just days before the election.
Pay no mind to the fact that it was Podesta’s inability to come up with a secure password that allowed for his personal email account to be phished and over 50,000 of his communications to be turned over to WikiLeaks which gleefully published them in installments leading up to the election. It is, however, going to be very popcorn worthy once the IG report is out and especially if it flays Comey alive as anticipated.
You gotta love it when the rats start gnawing on each other.
The report is scheduled to be made public at 3 pm ET this afternoon barring any late obstructive maneuvers by Rod Rosenstein and the dirty DOJ.
