Comey Delivers Grave Warning That Trump ‘Is Coming’ for DOJ, FBI

Former FBI Director James Comey

By Steve Neavling

Former FBI Director James Comey warned Tuesday that Donald Trump “is coming” for the FBI and Justice Department. 

In an interview with MSNBC, Comey was asked about the implications for the bureau if Trump is elected to a second term. 

“Serious for the Justice Department and the FBI, because Trump is coming for those institutions,” Comey, who led the FBI from 2013 to 2017, said. “He knows their power, and I think he has regrets that he didn’t work hard enough to corrupt them last time. So, he’s coming for them, and that’s a danger for all Americans.”

Comey added, “He’s going to put people in positions in those organizations. He didn’t have all-stars the last time. He’ll have the bottom of the barrel this time, but people who will want to do his will, and that should worry every American. This election matters because of a reason like that,”

U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., went even further, saying Trump’s DOJ would “go on a murdering spree” if Trump wins a second term. 

Pressley delivered the warning at a House Oversight and Accountability Committee hearing on the Office of Personnel Management, The Hill reports

Trump and his allies have repeatedly discussed the former president’s plans to use the FBI and DOJ as a weapon for conservative causes.
