Roger Simon: “James Comey Should Resign Now for the Good of the Country”

Prize-winning novelist Roger L. Simon, author of the book “I Know Best: How Moral Narcissism Is Destroying Our Republic, If It Hasn’t Already,” wants FBI Director James Comey to resign over his failure to recommend that Hillary Clinton be indicted despite overwhelming evidence against her.

He writes:

If [I were] an FBI agent, I would despise James Comey. He has humiliated the FBI and all its employees. The institution will never be the same, at least not for decades to come. The FBI is no longer an instrument of justice. It is the reverse. It is an obfuscator of justice and an enabler of the rich and powerful. How depressing and disgusting. God help our republic.

And furthermore:

What a coward Comey is. When Julian Assange starts to release his next round of emails, the director may have to commit hara-kiri. It will be the only honorable way to go, failing his resignation.

If he doesn’t resign, I predict he will soon have a full-scale mutiny on his hands from within the ranks of the FBI. Rumors have already surfaced. That humiliation, institutionally and personally, is too great for honorable men and women to take. And there are many honorable men and women in the ranks of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Whether they will mutiny before [or] after Hillary is elected president, if she is, is hard to say. But if it is after, there is no foreseeing what will happen.
