Today, James Comey, the FBI director President Trump fired, in order to obstruct justice in the Russia investigation, did what he does best, troll President Trump on Twitter with a scathing historical quote.
Comey cited free-thinking abolitionist and Civil War veteran, Robert G. Ingersoll, who said in praise of President Lincoln, “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. … Most people can bear adversity; but if you wish to know what a man really is give him power.”
“Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. … Most people can bear adversity; but if you wish to know what a man really is give him power. “ Robert G. Ingersoll (1883, speaking of Lincoln)

In other words, Lincoln revealed his greatness when he assumed power, as opposed to Trump, whose presidential powers have only exposed the depths of his depravity — culminating in his support of last night’s loser, pro-slavery child molester Roy Moore and his virtually calling Senator Kirsten Gillibrand a whore.
On a regular basis, Comey has tweeted quotes by historical figures aimed at the president most ignorant of the Constitution in U.S. history.

Between the book he is writing and his literary tweets, Comey is exacting rhetorical revenge against the man who fired him to try to quash his investigation.
However, with Comey’s predecessor as FBI chief, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, on the case proving Trump’s collusion with Russia, that revenge is about to manifest in very real terms.
