Former Donald Trump communications director Jason Miller called out Democrats for supporting James Comey after the president fired him, arguing that many of them had previously criticized the FBI Director.
Miller said on CNN Tuesday that he was surprised to hear Chuck Schumer’s negative reaction to the firing considering in November he publicly said he had “lost confidence” in Comey.
“Look, this is something that should have been done last year…the avalanche of Democrats who came out and criticized Director Comey and said that he should be fired, whether it be Valerie Jarrett, or Jerry Nadler, or liberal columnists like Kurt Eichenwald…even Harry Reid said that he thought Director Comey probably violated the Hatch Act last year,” the former Trump adviser said.
“It was clear…that Director Comey had lost the following of FBI agents and they determined that the decision needed to be made and they approached the White House and took it from there,” he concluded. “I think President Trump maybe should have gotten rid of him on day one.”
Later in the broadcast, Miller even called out Democratic New York Rep. Jerry Nadler to his face, telling him, “You thought so little of his judgment last year you wanted him fired.”
