Comey Rips Trump For ‘Lying’ About FBI Raid On Cohen’s Office: ‘Shame On Republicans Who Don’t Speak Up’





Former FBI Director James Comey on Sunday ripped into President Trump for “lying” after he tweeted about an FBI raid of his former personal lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen. He implored Republicans to defend the FBI amid Trump’s lastest attack on the bureau.

“This is from the President of our country, lying about the lawful execution of a search warrant issued by a federal judge,” Comey tweeted. “Shame on Republicans who don’t speak up at this moment — for the FBI, the rule of law, and the truth.”



Trump on Sunday claimed that the FBI “broke into” Cohen’s office when they seized documents in April from his home, office and hotel room. The FBI was executing a search warrant obtained partly based on a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller, reports The Hill.

“Remember, Michael Cohen only became a ‘Rat’ after the FBI did something which was absolutely unthinkable & unheard of until the Witch Hunt was illegally started,” Trump tweeted. “They BROKE INTO AN ATTORNEY’S OFFICE!”

Cohen was sentenced last week to 36 months in prison for campaign finance law violations that he said he committed at the direction of then-candidate Trump.
