James Comey’s anti-Trump book tour is already a flop.
He expected to be showered with praise for morphing into a “resistance” stalwart.
But he was shut down by the last person he ever expected.
Former FBI agent James Gagliano joined anti-Trump conspiracy theorist Brian Stelter on a CNN panel discussing Comey’s interview.
Viewers at home expected to see a Trump bashing round table, but they got the biggest surprise of their lives.
Gagliano blasted Comey as a “feckless leader” and ripped him for discussing ongoing investigations.
The Daily Wire reports:
“Stelter, an apparent Comey supporter, was ecstatic at the possibility of having Comey give more information on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, NewsBusters reported.
After Stelter hyped Comey’s interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, Gagliano dropped the hammer on Comey, calling him a “feckless leader.”
“The issue I take with him, and many former agents and those on board, current on boards take this issue, James Comey is still an FBI employee,” Gagliano said as he explained why Comey’s actions were against DOJ policy. “He’s discussing matters that are relevant and salient to an open or ongoing investigation or case. I.e., the Russia probe. I.e. the Inspector General’s probe. I.e., a number of different congressional probes still going on right now.”
“He’s a feckless leader,” Gagliano continued. “He testified in front of the House Intelligence Committee he wished he’d been stronger but he wasn’t.”
Comey’s book was also trashed by far-left outlets like the Washington Post and Rolling Stone magazine.
And just 9.8 million viewers tuned in to his ABC interview.
That is about half the audience the pro-Trump Roseanne premiere garnered on the same network.
Comey’s book tour by every measure is a bomb.
There is nothing in the book that incriminates Trump, a small audience watched his interview and former FBI agents are tearing him to shreds for his unprofessional behavior.
Comey was just the latest in the long line of individuals hyped by the media to be the David who will slay the Trump Goliath.
But Comey – like all the others – only fired blanks.
