As hellfire prepares to rain down on the White House, former FBI Director James Comey is chillin’, you know, just getting his Instagram on.
After news broke that Trump’s former national security advisor Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contact with Russia, Comey responded by posting his first Instagram and trolling the men with a biblical verse about justice.
“‘But justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream’ Amos 5:24,” Comey captioned a photo of Great Falls Park in Virginia, one which he’s shared on social media before.
In a previous tweet Comey called Amos 5:24 his “favorite scripture verse,” and said it reminds him of this image of the Great Falls.
Flynn resigned back in February following reports that he had lied about communication with Russia prior to Trump taking office. Then, Comey was fired by Trump in May, which raised a few red flags seeing as the FBI was investigating potential ties between Trump’s administration and Russian government officials.
Comey explained in a written memo that the day after Flynn resigned, Trump asked him to let any investigation surrounding Flynn to go, and later testified about his interactions with Trump to the Senate Intelligence Committee in June.
After Comey’s wild White House ride it’s pretty clear to see how Friday’s news could inspire him to sub-Instagram for joy about justice.
His Instagram handle, a_higher_loyalty, references the title of his upcoming book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership” that’s expected to be released in Spring 2018.
It’s been a big year for Comey and social media, after the man recently revealed he is the owner of a highly speculated secret Twitter account where he used to go by the name Reinhold Niebuhr.
This is just the start of Comey’s Instagram presence — at the time of writing this article he only had a mere 10,000 followers, compared to his 442,000 Twitter followers — but maybe one day his trolling will reach Pete Souza levels.
