Thanks, but we’re well aware we can’t trust this government.

FBI Director James Comey says you can’t trust anybody — especially the US government.

“I believe that Americans should be deeply skeptical of government power — you cannot trust people in power,’’ the director said in a surprisingly candid interview that aired on CBS’s “60 Minutes’’ on Sunday night.

“The Founders knew that,’’ Comey said, adding, “That’s why they divided power among three branches, to set interest against interest.”

Still, Comey insisted that his agency isn’t watching us illegally.

“We don’t do electronic surveillance without a court order,” he said.

Sure they don’t. And of course they’d never snoop into anyone’s tax returns or anything.

By the way, you know who else we shouldn’t trust? The FBI, when it comes to a politicized anti-gun agenda.
