Trump will benefit greatly from the unfolding of Comey vs. McCabe

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and former FBI Director James Comey may soon be seen in the main event of Comey vs. McCabe. The reason for this is the investigations that have now been opened on both men. Things are not working out as they thought they would. If Hillary has just won the election, they would not be going through all this drama.

As Written and Reported By Silvio Canto, Jr. for the American Thinker:

Trump, whose new nickname for the former FBI director is “Lyin’ Comey,” has taken this a great deal further than Bromwich, who has attributed the disagreement between McCabe and Comey’s version of events to Comey’s “fallible memory.”

But Bromwich’s suggestion that Comey’s recall may be faulty comes at a particularly sensitive time for Comey, who has been trying to convince the public – through the launch of a new book and a whirlwind media tour – that he can be trusted to recall the……
