FROM THE “BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR” DEPARTMENT

“Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it”* has become something of a cliché.  But it has a serious meaning – that some things have consequences you might regret wishing for.

With that in mind, this tweet was sent out by former FBI Director, current disgruntled, vengeful Trump-hater, James Comey:

Here’s hoping 2018 brings more ethical leadership, focused on the truth and lasting values. Happy New Year, everybody.

Are you referring to the legal consequences of leaking classified information to a friend, with the express intent of its being used to create an independent counsel, Mr. Comey?

Or an investigation of how the FBI, under your direction, used unverified Hillary Clinton opposition research to get FISA warrants?

Or what you cooked up with your General Counsel, James Baker?  With Andrew McCabe?

Personally, I agree with your new year’s wish 100%.  I’m just surprised that you do.


*FYI:  “Be careful what you wish for.  You just might get it” is a saying attributed to many sources.  Some say it is a version of an old Chinese proverb, some say it is a Yiddish curse, etc.  We know it was used in the 1902 story “The Monkey’s Paw”, written by the British author, William Wymark Jacobs – and he attributed it to “Anonymous”.  So it’s anyone’s guess.
