Former FBI Director James Comey shared a quote from former President Franklin D. Roosevelt about judging one by the enemies they make after President Trump issued his latest round of attacks aimed at Comey on Saturday.
"I ask you to judge me by the enemies I have made," Comey tweeted, quoting the former president.
His tweet came hours after the president renewed his criticism of the former FBI director with a series of tweets and a White House statement blasting the nation's former agency chief.
Trump's latest criticism followed a late Friday report from The New York Times detailing how the agency launched an investigation into whether Trump was acting on the direction of Russia after firing Comey in 2017.
After ousting Comey from the FBI, Trump told NBC News at the time that the decision was made due to Comey's handling of the Russia investigation. The Times reports that the decision and Trump's subsequent explanation so alarmed FBI agents that a probe was immediately launched focusing on the president himself.
"Wow, just learned in the Failing New York Times that the corrupt former leaders of the FBI, almost all fired or forced to leave the agency for some very bad reasons, opened up an investigation on me, for no reason & with no proof, after I fired Lyin James Comey, a total sleaze!" Trump tweeted Saturday morning.
Subsequent tweets from the president attacked Comey's character, referring to the former FBI chief as a "crooked cop" who Trump argued had overstepped his authority at the Justice Department.
"My firing of James Comey was a great day for America. He was a Crooked Cop who is being totally protected by his best friend, Bob Mueller, & the 13 Angry Democrats," Trump added Saturday.
Comey has remained a vocal critic of the president since his ouster, and frequently attacked the president last year during a media tour surrounding the release of his memoir, "A Higher Loyalty," which in part detailed his time in the Trump and Obama administrations.
Did he just call himself a hard-left radical?
This asshole needs to spend about 30 years in a 6x9 room with a 6 foot ceiling
Cue the clip of Schumer and other Democrats saying he should be fired.
“I ask you to judge me by the enemies I have made,” Comey tweeted, quoting the former president.
You lose that argument, too, Puke.
The people I respect say you are scum.
Comey made an enemy of every American.
But if that’s what he’s proud of....
FDR. Another Marxist POS like Comey.
FDR was a bosom buddy of Josef Stalin.
Comey made an enemy of every American.
But if thats what hes proud of...
Democrats hate him because they think he cost hillary the election.
Republicans hate him because he is an asshole.
His ego is the only one in DC that can beat John Kerry’s
Hey, he's the one who used that word, not anyone else.
His wife needs to kick his ass and tell him to STFU and let his lawyer do his tweeting for him for now on.
Comey, following his trial and conviction, should spend a brief time standing on an elevated platform with a trap door.
The way I figure it, he doesn’t have any friends on either side of the aisle. He’s burnt his toast on both sides.
So his enemies are the American people, freedom loving people, rank and file FBI agents and staff, etc. He is living in an alternate CNN reality.
Comey.. The biggest moron to ever come down the FBI pike. He should have been fired long before Trump had to do it.
There are certainly questions about the FBI. Maybe we’ll never know for certain but as citizens, we deserve to know. Why? Because if it is bad as we think, then it was reallly bad and the risk to our republic was great. Letting the citizens know will be the cleansing that is needed. Let’s hope that the truth will come out.
Now we know. Comey is a far left socialist. Maybe the investigation he started against Trump is really an attempt to keep Russia relative.
