In a scathing op-ed published Tuesday, former FBI director James Comey called out the Trump administration for repeatedly insinuating that U.S. intelligence agencies were trying to stage a coup. He also attacked the President for accusing him and other intelligence professionals of treason.
"No ‘treason.’ No coup. Just lies — and dumb lies at that," Comey wrote.
In response, White House advisor Kellyanne Conway slammed him as “a grandstander and a show boat” on Wednesday.
“Methinks he doth protest too much,” Conway also said of Comey on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends. She added that Comey is worried about an investigation into the FBI's investigating of the Trump campaign. It “sounds like there’s panic in the world of Jim Comey,” Conway said.
“Who cares what he thinks?” Conway added. “We said ‘no collusion’ for two years and they couldn’t take us for our word.”
Conway also called out the two FBI staffers, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, caught texting about the Trump campaign.
“We already know how much the sexters, I mean the texters, of course, were making fun of Trump voters,” Conway said.
