Comey Praises FBI For Standing Up To GOP ‘Weasels And Liars’ Pushing Trump’s Memo





Former FBI Director James Comey praised the FBI for fighting back against Republican “weasels and liars” who want to publish a controversial classified memo that purports to show political bias within the Justice Department.

“All should appreciate the FBI speaking up. I wish more of our leaders would. But take heart: American history shows that, in the long run, weasels and liars never hold the field, so long as good people stand up. Not a lot of schools or streets named for Joe McCarthy.,” Comey tweeted on Thursday.




The FBI issued a rare public statement this week saying it had “grave concerns” about the memo, compiled by GOP staff and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), which contained information that was inaccurate and misleading.

FBI Director Christopher Wray reportedly reiterated those concerns directly to the White House.

President Trump is expected to release the memo over the objections of the FBI and DOJ.
