James Comey Was an Ass in College

In an op-ed in the Washington Post, James Comey confesses to freshman college year hijinks:
In 1978, I was a college freshman...There was a boy in that annex who was mildly annoying. He was a bit arrogant and uptight and had potted plants in his immaculately neat dorm room. He went his own way most of the time. But somehow the group of boys decided that this boy was not to be tolerated. So the group messed with his belongings, trashed his room and performed other idiocies I can’t remember. I was part of that group. Some things I did, some things I helped do, some things I laughed about after they were done. I caused someone else pain.
It is unclear why the former FBI director is writing about this now. The theme of his essay was groupthink that he alleges occurred by the audience during President Trump's post-impeachment public comments.
The important thing was what happened in the audience, where there were plenty of intelligent people of deep commitment to religious principle. They laughed and smiled and clapped as a president of the United States lied, bullied, cursed and belittled the faith of other leaders. That was the deeply disturbing part of the East Room moment, and should challenge us all.
He certainly could have made the point without delving into his freshman college year.


It sounds like he is having some kind of personality crisis.

I think he understands Trump is coming after him.



  1. Comey does seem like a nasty piece of work.

  2. Sounds like hes trying to get ahead of a story that was about to break.

  3. His early activities of wrongfully entering someone else's property and messing with their private stuff over a difference of viewpoints made him a perfect candidate for Quantico.

  4. "He was a bit arrogant and uptight and had potted plants in his immaculately neat dorm room."

    Sounds more like the confession of a super deep crush.

    I went for the tall smart girls who were way out of my league.
