During a visit to Ireland, disgraced former FBI Director James Comey told the Irish Times Friday, that he was so ashamed of current U.S. immigration policies that he considered telling Irish customs officials that he was Canadian when he arrived.
Of course he neglected to say that they are the same policies and actions that Barack Obama followed. Or, that the pictures of children in cages that began this fake news propaganda cycle were of Obama’s treatment of illegal children crossing the border. Just more lies coming from dirty cop Comey.
“I am ashamed of the way my country has acted with respect of those children. I am disgusted, I am horrified, I am embarrassed, I’m ashamed,” he said.

Twitter followers were not too happy about dirty cop Comey’s remarks.
If Comey thinks he is ashamed it is nothing next to shame he has bestowed on what was one the most prestigious Agencies on the planet. The FBI will eventually recover its honor. He will not. RIP.

Under Jim Comey the best law enforcement agency in the world became a tainted political puppet show.
He should be “disgusted, horrified and embarrassed” at himself.

Perfect opportunity to secure our borders and not let this traitor back in. Go to Canada and play with Trudeau.

It was happening under your watch as FBI Director also! You did nothing. In fact, there were lawsuits against the Obama administration. You are so HYPOCRITICAL! If you do not want to be a American, stay over there. You have every right to change you citizenship!

Comey, who is still on a promotional tour for his book, “A Higher Loyalty,” arrived in Ireland with his wife this week.
“My wife and I were joking, not really joking; we wanted to tell the people on the customs line coming here that we were Canadian. And we were joking but it’s funny because it reveals a truth: I’m ashamed,” he said.
Fox News reports:
Comey blamed the U.S.-Mexico border crisis — in which scores of children were separated from their parents until President Donald Trump issued an executive order changing the policy — on political and economic conditions in Central America.
A day earlier, in an interview with the Guardian, Comey likened the detention centers for immigrants arriving in the U.S. to the Japanese internment camps during World II and the civil rights struggles of the 1960s.
Comey also told the Dublin crowd that his decision to reopen a case on Hillary Clinton’s alleged mishandling of emails just 11 days before the November 2016 presidential election was not motivated by politics. It was a decision many have blamed for her loss.
The former FBI director also reiterated his criticism of President Trump, whom he said is “morally unqualified for office.”
Comey ended by expressing confidence that the country’s “democratic institutions” will withstand any political fervors.
“The rule of law is spine,” he said. “No president serves long enough to screw that up. Donald Trump, even if he were competent, he could not screw that up.”
