After President Donald Trump, James Comey burst as one of several "dirty policemen" who dug into Russian interference in the 2016 election, the former FBI director beat GOP and decrypted "witness intimidation."
"This is not okay, not normal," Comey arrived on Twitter on Twitter in the hours following Trump's statements to journalists. "That the testimony continues, while hundreds of thousands of honest officials are without pay, moves it from just monstrous to inconsistent. Can the Republicans hear the past ask," Have you finally not learned any sense of decency? ""
In his press release earlier the day before he left for a New Orleans event, Trump expressed frustration when asked to note Russia's investigation, saying he never worked for the foreign land and added: "I think it is a disgrace that you asked the question yourself because it is a big fat trap. It's just a hoax. "
Continued rage against Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, the president labeled Comey, formerly acting FBI director Andrew McCabe and former FBI agent Peter Strzok as" well-known scoundrels. "
Trump also tried to undermine the legitimacy of the Russian query by claiming it was started because he fired Comey.
He took a moment to appoint Comey.
" I have done a great favor for our country when I fired James Comey because he was a bad policeman and he was a dirty policeman and he lied, "Trump said." He really lied. "
The last line of Comey's apparent retaliatory tweet seems referring to the infamous 1954 Army-McCarthy hearings launched after former Senator Joe McCarthy (RW.I.) claimed that the US Army had feeble security on one of its top secret facilities.
But the move went back when the army said McCarthy had requested special treatment by a subcommittee assistant who had just been drafted.
In a heated lawyer, McCarthy accused a lawyer of the army lawyer, Joseph Welch, of having communist boats nd.
With a failing answer, Welch replied: "Let's not kill this boy any more, Senator. You've done enough. Do you have no sense of decency? "
Last week, a New York Times report revealed that after Comey & # 39; s concern, the FBI alleged whether Trump served as a Russian agent as well as having prevented justice by officially shooting the intelligence.
In an interview with Fox News & # 39; Jeanine Pirro, Trump called it "the most insulting article I had ever written," claims that "if you read the article, you will see that they found absolutely nothing. "
