Bill Maher surprised his panel and audience on Friday when he put the blame on the firing of FBI Director James Comey ultimately at the feet of Bill Clinton.

During “Real Time with Bill Maher,” the host said while President Donald Trump was the person who let Comey go, during the election Clinton walked onto then Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s plane which forced her to remove herself from the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. (RELATED: ‘The View’ Didn’t Expect This Reaction From The Audience To Comey’s Firing)


“I don’t think this is said enough,” Maher explained. “Bill Clinton… but a lot of this is because of Bill Clinton. The reason why Comey had to say what he did is because the attorney general had to recuse herself because he walked on her plane. Let’s not forget that.”  (RELATED: Bill Maher Skewers Hillary Clinton For Returning To The Spotlight)

“Bill Clinton, once again, fucked up his wife’s life,” he added. “Absolutely. Absolutely.”

“If Bill Clinton hadn’t walked on Loretta Lynch’s plane, then she would’ve been making the statement instead of Comey,” he continued. “Yes, [Comey] made a statement we didn’t like, but he was given an almost impossible situation. That’s where we are: Bill Clinton. Let’s put the blame where it belongs.”
