Comey: I Am Not a Weasel

Adapted from Scott Johnson’s post at Power Line

FBI Director James Comey’s appearance before the House Judiciary Committee (last Wednesday) deserves the attention of every American who cares about the rule of law, as many opponents of Donald Trump purport to do.

In my mind Comey’s testimony recalls the dark days of Watergate. Richard Nixon never had it so good, but Comey echoed Nixon with the unforgettable declaration before the committee:
“You can call us wrong, but don’t call us weasels. We are not weasels. We are honest people and…whether or not you agree with the result, this was done the way you want it to be done.”

Students of ancient history, compare and contrast with Richard Nixon’s statement on Watergate in 1973 before the fall: “And I want to say this to the television audience. I made my mistakes. But in all of my years of public life, I have never profited – never profited from public service. I’ve earned every cent. And in all of my years of public life, I have never obstructed justice…people have got to know whether or not their president is a crook. Well, I’m not a crook. I’ve earned everything I’ve got.”












… And now, in closing:
