Donald Trump is on the war path to retake the White House. But it could all end before it’s really even started.
Because The FBI Director sent a chilling message to Donald Trump.
Congressional Republicans have been exposing just how corrupt and weaponized the federal government truly is.
From the low level agents and bureaucrats all the way to the directors of agencies have a vendetta against conservatism.
And this FBI Director just proved that it’s been happening for years.
Former FBI Director James Comey, a prominent critic of former President Donald Trump, was asked about the 2024 presidential election in a new interview that aired Sunday.
“It has to be Joe Biden,” Comey said during an interview for Jen Psaki’s MSNBC show, in response to a question from Biden’s former White House press secretary.
“And I’m glad he’s willing to serve. It has to be somebody committed to the rule of law, committed to the values of this country,” he continued.
“And I’m not talking about policy. People can disagree about policy. There are things above those disagreements that all of us should think about the same way. The president must be someone who abides the law and our Constitution. And there’s no one else but Joe Biden.”
Psaki asked Comey if he’d consider any of the Republican candidates running for president in 2024, noting that Comey was formerly a longtime Republican but voted for Biden in 2020.
Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy have already declared their presidential candidacies, as have Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C.
Comey, who was fired by Trump in 2017 while leading the FBI’s investigation into suspected Russian collusion with Trump’s campaign, stated in the interview that if Trump is re-elected, he will have “four years of a retribution presidency.”
“He could order the prosecution of individuals who he sees as enemies. I’m sure I’m on the enemies list,” Comey alleged.
“Because the president constitutionally does oversee the executive branch entirely, which includes the Department of Justice, prosecutors and investigators. And so he could commission, direct that individuals be pursued. He could also direct all types of other conduct that people would maybe take to court to try to stop – but who enforces court orders?”
“Mostly the United States Marshals Service, which is part of the executive branch and reports to the president. And so President Trump could say, ‘I don’t care what the Supreme Court says or these district judges say, I’m telling the Marshals Service don’t enforce the court order.’ And so our Constitution really does give a rogue president, which is what this would be, tremendous power to destroy.”
“People criticize CNN for their town hall. I want the American people to stare at the threat that we’re facing and understand that they cannot take the next election off,” he said.
During the CNN town hall, Trump declined to commit to seeing Ukraine win the fight against Russia, according to Psaki.
“Should we expect Russia to interfere on his behalf in 2024?” Psaki inquired of Comey.
“Yes, of course,” Comey replied.
“Vladimir Putin does not want Joe Biden to be president of the United States for reasons that I hope the American people see because he acts in our national interests. He would very much like Donald Trump to be president again because Donald Trump – for reasons I still can’t explain – very, very fond of Vladimir Putin. And so they will find ways to interfere. I hope our intelligence community is equipped to respond maybe better than we did in 2016. But they’ll come for this election.”
