James Comey has been a key player in Trump’s circus of drama since he made the decision to tell the press that then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was under investigation just days before the 2016 election. That investigation ended up resulting in no charges for Clinton, but may have destroyed her chances at the presidency.
Comey was soon after fired by Donald Trump, for a completely different reason, after many rumors that Comey was in Trump’s pocket due to timing of the Clinton investigation announcement.
Comey never stopped fighting back, however, and on Monday, he gave this statement to reporters outside a Capitol Hill hearing after explaining that he was once again questioned about the Clinton dossier..
“..while the president of the United States is lying about the FBI, attacking the FBI and attacking the rule of law of this country.”
“How does that make any sense at all? Republicans used to understand that the actions of a president matter. The words of a president matter, the rule of law matters and the truth matters. Where are those Republicans today?”“At some point, someone has to stand up and in the face of fear of Fox News, fear of their base, fear of mean tweets, stand up for the values of this country and not slink away into retirement, but stand up and speak the truth.”
Leakin’ James Comey must have set a record for who lied the most to Congress in one day. His Friday testimony was so untruthful! This whole deal is a Rigged Fraud headed up by dishonest people who would do anything so that I could not become President. They are now exposed!
