Dropping the Hammer on James Comey- Commentary!
Dropping the Hammer on James Comey- Commentary!
Summary of eRumor:
A commentary titled “Dropping the Hammer on Comey” has appeared in forwarded emails and on social media.
The widely circulated “Dropping the Hammer on Comey” commentary describes former FBI Director James Comey as “a poisonous snake of the highest order” and paints Comey’s career as one marred by cover-ups, corruption and collusion with the Clinton Foundation.
It’s not clear exactly where this commentary originated. It was widely circulated on social media in the days and weeks after President Donald Trump fired Comey in May 2017. We weren’t able to verify the original author of the post, but a lengthy version that appeared at the self-described “alternative news media” website StateoftheNation2012.com has been widely circulated.
The site introduces the commentary as “an excellent comment on Facebook.” A woman named Lisa Frank is identified as the author at the bottom of the piece. We weren’t able to track down the original post, or it’s author.
The commentary begins by stating that James Comey has been “highly paid to deliberately provide cover for high-level corruption by the Clintons and Obama.” Of course, the fact that Hillary Clinton blamed her election loss on Comey’s decision to write a letter informing Congress that he was re-opening the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server in October 2016 would appear to contradict the commentary’s claims.
And we previously investigated claims that James Comey had financial ties to the Clinton Foundation, which resurface later on in this commentary, and found them to be unproven. Although it’s true that Comey worked for Lockheed-Martin and HSBC bank, two businesses that have ties to the Clinton foundation, there are no direct links between Comey himself and the Clinton Foundation.
Given that this writing expresses the author’s personal views of James Comey and his career, we’re classifying it as “commentary.”

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
There are very few crime/mystery novels that approach this true story for compelling drama, intrigue and brinkmanship (with the nation in the balance).
Don’t believe the fake-media story that Trump made a mistake or huge gaffe by firing Comey.
Don’t believe the media narrative from the left that it was an attempt to silence Comey from some investigation into Trump.
Don’t believe the RINO narrative that Comey is a good guy just trying to do his job in terrible circumstances and the timing was bad.
Don’t believe the lie that Comey was admired and respected by career FBI investigators and agents.
Don’t believe the lie that Trump’s “tweets” are not professional and have no strategic purpose. His tweets are weaponized and deadly.
James Comey is a poisonous snake of the highest order… a deep-water Swamp Denizen who has been highly paid to deliberately provide cover for high-level corruption by the Clintons and Obama. He is has been central to trying to destroy the Trump campaign and then the Trump administration from the start. He is as dirty as they come in DC. He had highest-level cover (the FBI no less) and was deep into an effort to eliminate Trump. Trump had to move hard, fast, and at exactly the right time to cut the head off the snake without getting bitten by the snake or being finished by the other swamp denizens.
Begin by noticing how the President fired Comey when Comey was 3,000 miles away from his office, that Comey had no inkling he was being cut, that all his files, computers, and everything in his office were seized by his boss Sessions and the justice department. This was not a violation of protocol, it was tactical. Notice how Prez Trump compartmentalized the strike and did not inform any of his White House “staff” to prevent leaks. Notice how he emasculated Comey and the swamp denizens by letting them know in a tweet that the Attorney General got information (surveillance “tapes” from the seizure of Comey’s office) to let Comey and his handlers know that Trump’s DOJ has the goods on them. This was a brilliant, strategic and totally imperative move at exactly the right time against horrible, evil and corrupt powers infesting our government.
The swamp is on notice that the President is on to them, they are sweating bullets because their criminal games of corruption are being pursued and they know it. They are screaming and ranting because they are desperate denizens of the swamp who are beginning to realize they are roadkill.
THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE COMEY SCAM. Taken from credible public sources (readily available if you want to look or want me to sent them to you), with a few reasonable “fill in the blank” conclusions of my own.
