After his testimony yesterday, Comey spoke with reporters where he said that Trump undermined the “rule of law.” The disgraced former FBI Director continued, “This is the president of the United States calling a witness who has cooperated with his own justice department a ‘rat.’ This is not about Republicans and Democrats. This is about what does it mean to be an American…There’s a set of values that represent the glue of this country and they are under attack…”
Sanders issued a scathing response, telling Fox News, “I think the last person that we’re going to take any lecture from about the values of this country is from a self-admitted liar and leaker that we know James Comey to be,” she said.
She continued, “There’s no doubt that he did a tremendous number of things wrong and brought outrageous corruption to the FBI. He led it with a political bias that is unheard of at an agency like that and so he’ll be the last person that we’re going to take any type of lecture from.”
Last night, after Comey’s comments Sanders took to Twitter to call on the GOP to stand up to the former FBI Director and his “tremendous corruption.”
“Republicans should stand up to Comey and his tremendous corruption – from the fake Hillary Clinton investigation, to lying and leaking, to FISA abuse, and a list too long to name,” she wrote. “The President did the country a service by firing him and exposing him for the shameless fraud he is”
