James Comey Tells GOP to Stop Fearing 'Fox News' and 'Mean Tweets'

James Comey Tells GOP to Stop Fearing 'Fox News' and 'Mean Tweets'”

"So another day of Hillary Clinton's emails and the Steele dossier", Comey said.

"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", Comey continued.

Law professor Alan Dershowitz on Monday argued that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn should never have pleaded guilty in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation because "lying to the FBI is not a crime".

Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey attacked President Donald Trump, the Republican Party, Fox News, and Americans on Monday as he complained about having to testify in front of Congress. How does that make any sense at all. At some point someone has to stand up in the fear of Fox News, fear of their base, fear of mean tweets, stand up for the values of this country, and not slink away to retirement. Comey first testified December 7.

"Because I knew that if anything came of the interview, if it advanced our investigation, the attack from the Trump administration would be that an Obama holdover had engineered it", he said.

Comey blasts Trump over tweet about FBI raid of Michael Cohen's office

The paper reported the memos showed President Trump asked for the FBI investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn to be dropped during a private meeting at the White House before Comey was sacked.

Asked about the effect of the president's tweet over the weekend that labeled his former lawyer Michael Cohen a "rat" for cooperating with federal investigators, Comey was adamant. Democrats have accused the GOP of using the investigation to try to discredit the FBI and Justice Department, as a means of undermining Mueller's probe.

Former FBI Director James Comey speaks to the media after giving a private deposition to the House Judiciary and House Government and Oversight committees on Capitol Hill in Washington, US, December 7, 2018.

"They seem to be wanting to play defence counsel for the president", said Congressman Elijah Cummings, D, who is now ranking member of the Oversight committee and is expected to serve as its chairman next year.
