White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders unloaded on disgraced former FBI Director James Comey on Monday after he attacked the Trump administration and the Republican Party.
Comey made the remarks after testifying in front of Congress over his controversial handling of the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server and use of the Steele dossier in launching an investigation into then-candidate Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, according to The Daily Wire.
“Republicans used to understand that the actions of a President matter,” Comey lamented. “That words of a President matter, the rule of law matters in the truth matters. Where are those Republicans today? At some point, someone has to stand up and in the face of fear of Fox News, fear of their base, fear of mean tweets, stand up for the values of this country and not slink away into retirement, but stand up and speak the truth.” – Sanders tweeted.
The former FBI director would not answer on Monday whether he believes the new congressional probe adds legitimate investigative value, saying that he “didn’t learn anything new” from the second session.
And when asked whether he has hurt the FBI’s reputation, Comey said: “I hope not.”
“They have a big hit, because the president of the United States with his acolytes, has lied about it constantly,” Comey said about the Justice Department and its work. “That’s a tragedy. That damage has nothing to do with me.”
The former FBI director continued to call on Republicans to stand up against Trump’s rhetoric toward the FBI.

Dan Bongino, the conservative political commentator, also ripped into Comey. He didn’t hold back, either- tearing into Comey’s statements, supporters, and the damage he has done to the FBI:
“The damage Jim Comey has done, and continues to do, to the FBI is astounding. It’s beyond belief that otherwise rational people still take Comey seriously. He’s disgraced himself and anyone who supports him. It’s embarrassing.”
So how is it that this clown, who has done so much damage, continues to find support? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
