Recently, controversial former FBI director James Comey wrote in a WashingtonPost OpEd that “There was no corruption. There was no treason. There was no attempted coup. Those are lies, and dumb lies at that. There were just good people trying to figure out what was true, under unprecedented circumstances.”
However, many disagree, including Fox News commentator Sean Hannity.
Per Politico, even Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is far from a Trump supporter, criticized former FBI Director James Comey for becoming a “partisan pundit” in the two years since he was fired by President Donald Trump.
In some of Rosenstein’s first extended remarks since leaving the Justice Department last week, the former deputy attorney general called Comey’s dismissal, which set off a firestorm in Washington and resulted in the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller, “reasonable under the circumstances,” citing Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
The “‘Deep State’ is in full panic mode” after President Trump authorized Attorney General Barrto declassify information relating to the origins of the Russia probe last week, this according to Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Hannity sent out yet another warning to those involved with the Russia investigation and assured the American people that they will “see the truth” for themselves.
The Fox News host also addressed former FBI director James Comey who wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post Tuesday critical of the investigation.
Comey wrote in The Washington Post on Tuesday, “There was no corruption. There was no treason. There was no attempted coup. Those are lies, and dumb lies at that. There were just good people trying to figure out what was true, under unprecedented circumstances.”
Hannity continued to warn Comey and other Obama-era intelligence officials such as former DNI James Clapper and former CIA director John Brennan who have been vocal against Trump authorizing declassification information in the Russia probe.
“And I warned you before, you do have the right to remain silent. You should have taken my advice from the get-go. Sadly, I think that your rage for President Trump and intense love of the spotlight is really overcoming every bit of common sense that you might have,” Hannity warned.
