ANALYSIS/OPINION:

James Comey’s behavior makes for a perfect example of the treasonous actions of the deep state, those unelected, entrenched government employees who believe they know better than the American public and have a “duty” to protect us from our own misguided beliefs (“James Comey’s smug skirt of spirit of law,” Web, Aug. 29).

Mr. Comey is no different from the megalomaniacs who have wrought destruction throughout history in the mistaken belief that they are the repository of wisdom and truth, something of which we mere mortals have no conception.

Mr. Comey’s book, “A Higher Loyalty,” is indicative of his own lofty self-conception as “above” the deplorables who inhabit the Earth. His lack of insight into the inspector general’s report concerning his behavior (as evidenced by his recent tweets) reinforces the need to weed out of government all employees with the deep-state mentality. Such peope are anathema to democracy, the rule of law and the very fundamentals of freedom.
