Comey Rips Into GOP For Releasing ‘Dishonest And Misleading’ Nunes Memo: ‘That’s It?’




Former FBI Director James Comey tore into Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee over the release of a memo alleging the Department of Justice abused a surveillance program.

“Dishonest and misleading memo wrecked the House intel committee, destroyed trust with Intelligence Community, damaged relationship with FISA court, and inexcusably exposed classified investigation of an American citizen. For what?” Comey tweeted.

“DOJ & FBI must keep doing their jobs,” he added.



The FBI on Wednesday issued an extraordinary public statement condemning the Republican push to release the memo.

“With regard to the House Intelligence Committee’s memorandum, the FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it,” the FBI statement said. “As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.”

On Thursday, Comey praised the FBI for “speaking up.”
