As the Trump administration prepares for former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before Congress, Kellyanne Conway tore into Comey and revealed what most of Washington thought of him.
According to Conway, the majority of Washington hated Comey and his always-serious demeanor.
Appearing on NBC on Monday morning, Conway spoke about the Comey testimony and President Donald Trump.
“The president will make that final decision but if Mr. Comey does testify we’ll be watching with everyone else,” Conway said about the issue of executive privilege.
I would point out two things: most of Washington, of course many of the Democrats, detested this man until Donald Trump fired him, which Jim Comey said in his own goodbye letter was the right of the president to do.
“Secondly, Jim Comey, the last time he testified under oath, the FBI had to scurry and correct his testimony almost immediately because what he said was false. He was off by hundreds of thousands in terms of the emails between Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner, and there were only two classified in there, apparently, and he was off by many, many in terms of the classification.”
“But the fact is, if he testifies, we’ll all be watching, but I think people should also look at the Rod Rosenstein memo again to see what the problem was in the department with FBI Director Jim Comey,” she continued.
“Rosenstein clearly points out that the integrity and the morale were down, and he clearly points out that Comey had tried to usurp the power of the attorney general, Loretta Lynch, and that he did ‘textbook’ what you’re not supposed to do by holding a press availability and announcing why they decided not to prosecute Hillary Clinton.”
Conway is 100 percent right. Remember when Comey let Clinton go and then announced another investigation right before the election? The left hated Comey just as much as the right, but the moment he was fired, they suddenly loved him. Hypocrisy at its finest.
