Nunes’ comments came after Hannity played a clip of Comey’s December interview with MSNBC anchor Nicole Wallace where he bragged about sending over FBI agents to interview Lt. General Michael Flynn at the White House when the administration was unprepared, ultimately setting up a perjury trap.
“What I would say this, Sean is in the future when you look up the word ‘dirty cop,’ if you have a fair and free internet, you will see the pictures of Comey and McCabe,” Nunes said.
“These guys make [J. Edgar] Hoover look like a saint. I had actually had never seen that clip you just played, but that’s absolutely despicable with the head of the FBI would think it’s funny and cute to send over these FBI agents to interview the national security advisor for the president of the United States and walk out and say, ‘We don’t think the guy is lying,’ but instead, what do you do? You double down,” the Congressman continued.
He concluded, “Closing with this — let’s not forget. The biggest leak of all of the leaks was the leak of General Flynn, the incoming national security advisor for the president of the United States, talking to the Russian ambassador.”
