Today’s quote comes to us from Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), who is at least nominally a Republican but a) has no problem crossing over and voting with Democrats and b) clearly does not like Donald Trump as President.
Here, from yesterday’s interview on Meet The Press, is what Ms. Collins had to say about James Comey’s book:
“One, always follow the Department of Justice’s protocols and guidelines, which unfortunately James Comey did not do with the Hillary Clinton investigation and he did not do when he leaked documents that were FBI work documents to a friend of his, knowing that they would go to the press. And so that would be my first advice.
“The second would be don’t write a book in the middle of an investigation.”
Translation: “Whatever I think of President Trump, you’re an opportunistic jerk who has no problem ignoring ethics and procedure if it will line your pockets.”
Susan Collins wins Quote Of The Day honors for calling Comey’s book what it is…and Comey what he is.
