HYPOCRITE: Chuck Schumer Wanted Comey Gone But Attacks Trump for Firing Him

In response the hysteria that Chuck Schumer and the Democrats are trying to stir up over the firing of James Comey, the White House released a flashback of sorts…

The White House offered three examples of when cry baby Chuck Schumer wanted James Comey gone:

Sen. Schumer (D-NY) Said He Was “Appalled At What Director Comey Did” By Releasing A Letter. “U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer ripped into FBI Director James Comey on Sunday for announcing he reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails less than two weeks from Election Day. Asked about the situation right off the bat during his one and only debate with long shot Republican challenger Wendy Long, Schumer said he was ‘appalled at what Director Comey did.'” (Kenneth Lovett, “Chuck Schumer Blasts FBI Boss James Comey During Debate With GOP opponent Wendy Long,” New York Daily News, 10/30/16)

Sen. Schumer (D-NY) Said He Does “Not Have Confidence In” Comey “Any Longer” For His Decision To Send A Letter Reopening The Investigation Into Clinton’s Private Server. “Senate Democratic leader-in-waiting Chuck Schumer said Wednesday he’s lost confidence in FBI Director James Comey over his handling of the most recent disclosure in the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation — a tough rebuke to a man Schumer has long admired. ‘I do not have confidence in him any longer,’ said the New York Democrat, who has criticized as ‘appalling’ Comey’s decision to send a letter to lawmakers 11 days before the election disclosing the bureau’s new review of e-mails potentially pertinent to the investigation of Clinton’s private server.” (Steven T. Dennis “Schumer Says He Lost Confidence In FBI’s Comey Over E-Mail Probe,” Bloomberg, 11/2/16)

In A March 27th 2017 New Yorker Profile, Sen. Schumer (D-NY) Stated That “You Could Say If Comey Wasn’t There We Would Have Won.” ‘When you lose to a candidate who is so unpopular—yes, you could say if Comey wasn’t there we would have won,’ he went on, referring to James Comey, the F.B.I. director. ‘But we should have won anyway, with Comey and with the hacking.'” (Elizabeth Kolbert, “Can Chuck Schumer Check Donald Trump?,” The New Yorker, 3/27/17)

Trump then topped it off with an epic tweet:
