CNN political analyst David Gregory said he didn’t like former FBI Director James Comey’s interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and believes Comey is “obsessed” with his public perception.
“I didn’t like that interview,” Gregory said on “New Day” Monday. “I think yet again he is obsessed with his standing, his media standing, his kind of political standing. I love how he says he doesn’t want to go down the road of getting involved in politics and yet that’s exactly what he did in the Clinton e-mail investigation, both times.”
“Comey claims to be above the fray of politics but continually makes decisions that put him at the center of political controversy,” Gregory said. “He protected the Trump investigation but he had no problem just waving around what was happening with the Clinton investigation. And at the very end of the campaign by sending that letter — by revealing all of these e-mails that were on Anthony Wiener’s computer server, without knowing if there was any evidence of crime, he did tilt the balance.”
“So, he’s trying obsessively to manage things,” Gregory added.
