Former Attorney General Eric Holder said former FBI Director James Comey is a “truthful” man but admitted he’s made a lot of mistakes, Tuesday on MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes.”

“I think he is a truthful person. I think he’s a man of honor, a person of integrity,” Holder said. “I think he’s also a person who made some really serious mistakes.”

WATCH:

Holder disagreed with Comey’s release of information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election, but he still thinks his credibility is beyond reproach.

“I wrote an article after he held that after he released that material in which I said that good men can make mistakes,” Holder concluded. “I think that’s what happened to Jim in 2016. But in terms of his credibility, I think that that is a touchstone for him. He tells the truth.”
