and compares FBI attackers to Joe McCarthy
Huffpost: Former FBI Director James Comey broke his silence on the White House’s efforts to a release a secret Republican memo alleging FBI bias against President Donald Trump, tweeting Thursday that “weasels and liars” will reap what they sow.
“All should appreciate the FBI speaking up. I wish more of our leaders would,” Comey wrote in reference to the agency’s strong opposition to releasing the memo crafted by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee.
Both the FBI and Democrats have raised concerns about releasing the memo, which Republicans on the committee voted to release earlier this week. (Trump is not expected to block the memo’s release to the public.) And on Wednesday, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, said Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the committee’s chairman, made “material changes” to the memo before it went to Trump.
