Political Perspective: A Higher Loyalty
Carter Elliott, Staff Columnist~
Washington D.C. has been shaken up with news of James Comey’s new book, “A Higher Loyalty,” and his interview with George Stephanopoulos this week has only added fuel to the fire. For the first time after his firing, James Comey sat down in a tell-all interview in which he continually criticized President Trump.
When asked about Trump’s mental health, the former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation said, “I don’t think he’s medically unfit to be president. I think he’s morally unfit to be president.” Comey used several pieces of data to corroborate this claim. Firstly, Comey cited Trump’s “business with the prostitutes.”
In the initial briefing of President Trump when he won the election, the topic of Russian prostitutes arose rather quickly. They discussed the alleged actions of the then President-Elect.
Trump stated, “If there’s even a one percent chance my wife thinks that’s true, that’s terrible.” To which Comey responded, “So what kind of marriage to what kind of man does your wife think there’s only a 99 percent chance you didn’t do that?”
Comey went on to say “It is possible” that the Russians have some sort of blackmail on the president. Comey said, “These are more words I never thought I’d utter about a President of the United States…”
After hearing this information from a man who regularly communicated with the president, Americans should be wary of the man living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. It seems everyone around him is beginning to question the morality of the POTUS. Comey even goes as far as to state that, “The challenge of this president is that he will stain everyone around him.”
Unfortunately for us, the nation may be becoming stained as well.
