You know what they say about broken clocks, right? Well, apparently, former FBI Director James Comey may have actually gotten something right in his new book.

The Guardian reported that the former FBI chief argued against subjecting President Donald Trump to prosecution after he leaves office. “The next US attorney general, under Joe Biden, should not “pursue a criminal investigation of Donald Trump”, Comey writes, “no matter how compelling the roadmap left” by the special counsel Robert Mueller, or “how powerful the evidence strewn across his history of porn stars and financial fraud,” the author wrote.

Comey continued, “Although those cases might be righteous in a vacuum, the mission of the next attorney general must be fostering the trust of the American people.”

The former FBI director’s book is set to be published on Jan. 12 and will likely include the usual self-righteous claptrap that we have come to expect from him. But unfortunately, the rabid TDS-suffering Democrats are unlikely to heed his advice.

The left has been salivating over the thought of waging a lawfare campaign against Trump after he leaves office. They are planning to use a plethora of lawsuits and other legal attacks to harass him when he becomes a private citizen again. Some of these are related to accusations of sexual assault. Others are connected to his business dealings.

However, Trump may not face any legal schemes from the White House under Biden. The former vice president signaled that he will not prioritize prosecuting Trump and will not push for investigations. If he follows through on this, it would be a surprising move. But, of course, he could be lying. Moreover, this doesn’t necessarily mean that he would stop officials in the Department of Justice from carrying out their own crusade against Trump.

In his book, Comey argues that Biden’s attorney general should raise the DOJ “above the partisan scrum.” The former FBI chief does indicate that he does not believe that Biden should issue a pardon for Trump because it “might not be enough accountability in Trump’s case. Or it may be, especially if local prosecutors in New York charge Trump for a legacy of financial fraud.”

“Whether or not our next president pardons Donald Trump, and whether or not the Department of Justice pursues him, the American people should be told why,” he added.
