James Comey says Biden 'has to' win re-election over Trump, but his narrative trips over inconvenient facts

Former FBI Director James Comey emphatically endorsed President Joe Biden's re-election campaign on Sunday.

Speaking with MSNBC host Jen Psaki, Comey argued Biden is the only logical candidate to win the election because he is a politician who unequivocally abides by the law and Constitution.

"It has to be Joe Biden," declared Comey, a lifelong Republican.

"It has to be somebody committed to the rule of law, committed to the values of this country," he continued. "And I'm not talking about policy. People can disagree about policy. There are things above those disagreements that all of us should think about the same way. The president must be someone who abides the law and our Constitution. And there's no one else but Joe Biden."

Comey's argument fell on deaf ears.

After all, Biden himself became the subject of a classified documents scandal earlier this year when sensitive documents — including some rumored to be so highly classified that they were only supposed to be viewed in a SCIF — in his post-vice presidential office. Then, investigators found more documents at Biden's home in Wilmington, Delaware, some of which were reportedly from Biden's tenure in the U.S. Senate.

Retaining classified documents is a direct violation of federal law.

Meanwhile, House Republicans have accused Biden of using his status as vice president to exchange "money for policy decisions." Those accusations stem from an FBI document that purportedly alleges Biden engaged in a "criminal bribery scheme" as vice president.

And just last month, Biden publicly toyed with the idea of exploiting the Constitution's 14th Amendment to circumvent Congress to solve the debt ceiling crisis. Most legal scholars believe the legal maneuver is questionable at best and unconstitutional at worst.

Moreover, Biden outright admitted in 2021 that his extension of the pandemic-related eviction moratorium likely did not "pass constitutional muster." The Supreme Court later intervened and ended it.
