Emerging from Monday’s hearings with the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees, a furious James Comey slammed President Donald Trump and the Republican party for impugning the FBI’s reputation with Americans. But when questioned by a Fox News reporter, he had particularly sharp words.
“The FBI’s reputation has taken a big hit the last year,” asked the reporter. “Do you share any of the responsibility for that?
“No,” Comey replied flatly. “The FBI’s reputation is taking a big hit because the president of the United States, with his acolytes, has lied about it constantly.” But then it got personal.
“In the face of those lies, a whole lot of good people that watch your network believe that nonsense,” he said. “That’s a tragedy. That will be undone eventually. But that damage has nothing to do with me.”
