James Comey’s Wife ‘Devastated’ by Hillary’s Loss to Trump

James Comey may have been a Republican, but it’s doubtful he favored Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton. In his new book “A Higher Loyalty,” he speaks of his decision to briefly open up the FBI’s investigation into Hillary’s private email server. That’s an event which Hillary commonly blames for her defeat (though that isn’t saying much, given that she’s blamed a thousand other things) – but Comey says he didn’t re-open the investigation to hurt her. Rather, he thought it would help legitimize her presidency when she “inevitably” won.

“It is entirely possible,” Comey writes, “that, because I was making decisions in an environment where Hillary Clinton was sure to be the next president, my concern about making her an illegitimate president by concealing the restarted investigation,bore greater weight than it would have if the election appeared closer or if Donald Trump were ahead in all polls. But I don’t know.”

Since when is it the FBI’s job to “legitimize” an incoming President? It isn’t – and we all know Comey would’ve never done the same for Trump in any situation.

We also learned from James that at least one Comey was devastated by Hillary’s loss.

According to the Daily Caller:

James Comey confirmed that his wife Patrice wanted Hillary Clinton to be the first female president, and Patrice Comey told ABC News that she was “devastated” when Clinton lost.

“I didn’t take a poll among all the kids, but I’m pretty sure that at least my four daughters, probably all five of my kids, wanted Hillary Clinton to be the first woman president,” James Comey said.

“My wife and girls marched in the Women’s March the day after President Trump’s inauguration,” he continued.

“There was a lotta passion in this house for Hillary Clinton,” Comey told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos as he tried to make the point that he “wasn’t making decisions based on political fortunes.”

Patrice Comey told ABC, “I wanted a woman president really badly, and supported Hillary Clinton. A lot of my friends worked for her, and I was devastated when she lost.”

Are we to believe that James is the only odd one out in the family? Yeah, right.

I guarantee James Comey was devastated that Hillary Clinton lost as well, but I wouldn’t count on him admitting to this.

  • She's as stupid as her old man. pretty disgusting but thats what happens when you're in DC and have your head up your butt continuously

  • J.Comey just make god of himself.He decided about everything by himself and everybody else was signing his music.

  • Quote from Sundance at CTH:

    "Businessman Donald Trump had the audacity to think an ordinary citizen would be allowed to run for the office of the Presidency… and for that offense, all efforts of the professional political class will be deployed to ensure his incorrect thinking is eliminated."
    The political ruling class in this country is an out of control cabal. The American people should understand this, but sadly many do not!

  • Didn't I see this in an episode of blindspot where most of the FBI leadership was working against our country.

  • Wow this pos even puts his wife and family into his self aggrandizing bs. Is there anyone who is off limits to him.

  • The Democrats, Liberal Progressives, Rinos and all of the Department heads like Comey knew that if Hillary got elected the lies and corruption in the SWAMP would all continue and the public would be none the wiser but if Trtmb got elected they were all in trouble and they would have to do what ever they could to keep him from exposing them. That is what they are doing NOW.

  • Too bad some people in the Trump administration can't get together and send Comey a sympathy card...."So sorry your wife and kids were seriously enamored of criminals!" and maybe also sorry that they have no brains!

  • Clearly Comey’s wife & children are pretty ignorant if they wanted the evil witch Hillary to be president. Who gives a damn what any of them think anyway?
