Former FBI Director James Comey praised a Department of Justice inspector general report which triggered the firing of former deputy director Andrew McCabe in an interview on ABCNews Good Morning America.
NEW: @Comey says report on Andrew McCabe “demonstrates the life of an institution that cares about the truth, and investigates and holds people accountable.”

Comey noted that the inspector general report, released Friday, “demonstrates the life of an institution that cares about the truth, and investigates and holds people accountable.” McCabe was fired by FBI Director Christopher Wray after the report concluded that “then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe lacked candor, including under oath, on multiple occasions in connection with describing his role in connection with a disclosure to the WSJ.”
McCabe and Comey have been heavily criticized by President Donald Trump for respective leaks to the media with the president even calling for their imprisonment Monday.
Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers. Disgruntled, he, McCabe, and the others, committed many crimes!
