2017 More Comey Fakes
- Beside the debunked FakeNews Trump under Investigation, or Comey Firing tropes. There were these sub-claims that were all debunked as well:
- 🔥 CNN claimed Comey wasn't granted more resources for investigation: False
- 🔥 Trump is going to live tweet during Comey hearing: False
- 🔥 Comey is a Boy Scout and apolitical: False
- 🔥 Trump fired Comey over investigation (the Dossier was getting close), not for incompetence or violation of ethics: the FBI's report showed that was False.
Trump didn't need a reason to fire James Comey more than "I don't like you". So the fact that Comey didn't pass a loyalty test, or wouldn't refute things publicly that he knew to be false, was reason enough. Despite the Press trying to make that into separate stories as well.
In the end, the question isn't what CNN has gotten wrong about James Comey, it's what have they gotten right? Seriously. Almost every spin they claimed was later shown to be complete and utter bullshit. He was a corrupt, incompetent partisan douchebag, that violated the FBI's rules, and CNN was cheerleading when the Democrats were decrying him in Nov - March... until the day Trump fires him, and then ZOMG! OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE! COMEY WAS A SAINT! And other horse droppings is their new tropes, and their mindless audience doesn't question it. "OrangeMan = Bad! CNN tells me so!"
