On the heels of Andrew McCabe’s firing, the circling of the wagons has begun. Fellow ousted FBI head James Comey tweeted at Trump, “The American people will hear my story very soon. And they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not.”
Of course, Comey had plenty of opportunities to give the American people the truth but instead chose to lie about it.
We’re thinking honor has already passed by, and Comey has been found wanting. Under his watch, the FBI has come into arguably the greatest scandal in its 110-year history.
That said, Comey has just begun his book tour, which means he’s probably just engaging in a little self-promotion to encourage more book sales.
Here’s more from Washington Examiner…
Former FBI Director James Comey shot a message at President Trump after his former deputy Andrew McCabe was fired, warning that “the American people will hear my story very soon,”
“And they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not,” he added in a terse tweet. Comey has a book coming out next month and a planned media tour to go along with it.
Trump, who just last night celebrated McCabe’s ouster as a “great day for democracy,” had just tweeted about how the “fake news” media was “beside itself” when “McCabe was caught, called out and fired.”
“How many hundreds of thousands of dollars was given to wife’s campaign by Crooked H friend, Terry M, who was also under investigation? How many lies? How many leaks? Comey knew it all, and much more!” Trump said.
The Associated Press also had just reported that McCabe, like Comey, kept personal memos of his interactions with Trump, after which it was revealed that special counsel Robert Mueller had obtained them.
McCabe served more than two decades in the FBI. He was appointed deputy director by Comey in January 2016. In the past year, he came under fire amid allegations of bias, stemming from a campaign contribution his wife received from a Hillary Clinton ally and his supervision of the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s email server while she was secretary of state.
