James Comey Already Has Potential Job Offer… at WikiLeaks

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange “would be happy to consider hiring James Comey,” who was fired by President Trump on Tuesday night amid his FBI conducting an investigation on Russia meddling in the election.

WikiLeaks would be happy to consider hiring James Comey to help lead its DC office should he like to properly investigate the US government.

Mr. Comey knows where many bodies are buried. Working for WikiLeaks is fulfilling. James–don't become another lobbyist for Glock or Donkin.

Assange wants Comey to lead his Washington D.C. office and look into the government that Comey was part of until late Tuesday, when he was abruptly fired by Trump.
Assange and Comey have a common enemy in President Trump, who publicly supported both men before eventually turning on them. Assange’s WikiLeaks site published a series of emails that were damaging to the Hillary Clinton campaign. Trump said at one campaign rally in October, “WikiLeaks has provided things that are unbelievable.”
However, during a news conference last month, U.S. attorney general Jeff Sessions said that the arrest of Assange is a “priority.”
Meanwhile, Trump praised Comey’s “guts” for renewing an investigation into Clinton roughly seven months before firing him.
“It took guts for Director Comey to make the move that he made in light of the kind of opposition he had where they’re trying to protect her from criminal prosecution,” Trump said last October.
Assange feels that the way Comey was treated will result in more leaks.

Comey's firing will be an extraordinary boon for transparency as his loyalists leak and the admin counter-leaks. Will he run for 2020?

Regardless of Assange claiming that “working for WikiLeaks is fulfilling,” we’re fairly confident Comey won’t be submitting a resume anytime soon.
