Is there anything sweeter than watching justice get served? For James Comey, gloating about it might be.
The former FBI director possibly threw some shade at the Trump administration on social media Friday morning after Michael Flynn pleaded guilty of lying to the FBI.
“‘But let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream,’” Comey wrote on Instagram, referencing Amos 5:24 from the Bible.
This was his inaugural—and as of press time, only—post on Instagram.
A post shared by James Comey (@comey) on
Flynn was charged for falsely stating on Dec. 29, 2016, that he did not ask Russia’s former ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak, to refrain from “escalating the situation in response to sanctions that the United States had imposed against Russia.”
President Donald Trump fired Comey last May, two months after he allegedly asked Comey to end the investigation of Flynn.
The post might be just a coincidence, but his followers didn’t see it that way.
I was waiting for your tweet 😂

Comey used chapter five in Amos, which also condemns those in power who take bribes, turn aside the needy, and afflict the righteous. It seems he’s feeling smug about the turn of events at the White House.
