Yesterday, James Comey joined 800 million other Instagram users.
Perhaps it was a coincidence — he may have finally gotten around to unpacking all those boxes, following the sale of his Greens Farms home and being fired as FBI director — but his first-ever post got a lot more attention than most people’s cats or restaurant meals.
Shortly after Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to (whoa!) the FBI, Comey — who snagged the pretty-obvious-but-apparently-untaken username “Comey” — posted a just-subtle-enough biblical verse: “But let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.”
He illustrated it with a lovely photo of an ever-flowing stream.
It quickly racked up over 21,000 likes.
However, it was his 2nd — and so far, final — photo that makes this an “06880”-worthy story.
Two hours ago, Comey posted this shot:
It’s a scene every Westporter is familiar with — and loves.
So does Comey. His caption: “Beautiful Long Island Sound from Westport, CT. To paraphrase the Buddha — Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun; the moon; and the truth.”
It’s already gotten over 8,000 likes.
Many of his Instagram followers agree with his message.
But whatever your politics, “06880” readers agree: This “Comey” guy knows a beautiful sunset when he sees one.
