On Monday morning former FBI Director James Comey died of natural causes; his heart stopped beating after a guillotine blade severed his head.
As reported previously, on June 4 the Office of Military Commissions found Comey guilty of murder and treason and decreed that he be decapitated on or before Independence Day. At 11:00 a.m. Monday, the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps fulfilled that promise, with Vice Adm. John G. Hannink presiding over a brief ceremony ahead of the execution.
Unlike Clinton and Podesta’s executions, Comey’s lacked fanfare; only a half dozen military personnel, including Marine Corps General David H. Berger, bore witness to Comey’s grisly but fitting demise. Also unlike previous executions, Comey’s lacked an execution detail. After two uniformed MPs escorted Comey to the ghoulish apparatus and laid his head on the chopping block, Vice Adm. Hannink personally pulled the lever that dropped the 88-pound blade from a height of 14 feet. Comey’s head fell into a basket, which was then sealed and taken to an unknown location.
The execution took place near the Windward Point Lighthouse on the southern edge of Guantanamo Bay. A source familiar with the event told Real Raw News that the guillotine used to end Comey’s life was one that he and former President Barack “Hussein” Obama had intended to use on law-abiding patriots. In that sense, the execution device was symbolic of Comey’s hatred toward America and its people.
In the moments leading up to his demise, Comey started kicking and screaming as the MPs dragged him to the guillotine. He reportedly blurted, “Oh, God, please don’t kill me. I didn’t do anything wrong. I only ever followed orders. I have children. I don’t want to die. This isn’t justice.”
“You had many opportunities to accept a deal. Now it’s too late,” Vice Adm. Hannink replied flatly.
“I don’t deserve this. I don’t deserve this,” Comey went on.
The MPs secured a locking mechanism across his neck that left him immobile. His arms were spread eagle, and shackles were fastened to wrists, pinning him to the platform. When the blade fell, Vice Adm. Hannink took a moment to address the small assembly.
“We don’t enjoy this. He had several chances to avoid this fate, and he refused them all. Justice has been served today,” he said.
