In an explosive Tweet, Former FBI Director James Comey came to the defense of the FBI for speaking up against Trump who is pushing to get a controversial memo published, hoping it will help him in the ongoing Russian inquiry. Calling out unnamed ‘weasels and liars,’ Comey went on to Tweet:
‘All should appreciate the FBI speaking up. I wish more of our leaders would,’ Comey wrote on Twitter. ‘But take heart: American history shows that, in the long run, weasels and liars never hold the field, so long as good people stand up.’
‘Not a lot of schools or streets named for Joe McCarthy,’ Comey continued, referring to the Wisconsin senator who claimed high-ranking government officials were Soviet spies in the 1950s.
Now I wonder who he’s talking about? (Rhetorical.)
