Former FBI Director Attacks Donald Trump's Supporters - Here's What He Had To Say

On Thursday, James Comey, the former FBI Director, published an anti-Trump tweet targeting President Donald Trump and his mass of followers.

In his tweet, Comey stated, “We have long had ugly margins in this country, but we are a fundamentally decent people, with shared values. We treasure our identity as a nation of immigrants. With our voices and our 2020 votes, we must send Donald Trump and his mob back to their dark corner.”

A report made by Breitbart expressed that Comey was referring to Trump supporters because of the “mob” remark. His tweet was posted right after the Trump rally in North Carolina on Wednesday, where the president mentioned Representative Ilhan Omar and the people began chanting, “Send her back!”

The establishment media and most of the Democrats condemned the acts, and Trump told the reporters, “I felt a little bit badly about it, but I will say this: I did start speaking very quickly … I was not happy with it. I disagree with it, but, again, I didn’t say that; they did.”

On Friday, a piece for Lawfare called “What I Would Ask Robert Mueller” was written by Comey. In it were the questions he would ask the former special counsel on the Russia collusion case as Mueller is set to testify on July 24.

One of the queries is, “Did you reach a judgment as to whether the president had committed obstruction of justice crimes?”

Another asked, “Did you find substantial evidence that the president had committed obstruction of justice crimes?”

Comey is considered to be anti-Trump because of his verbal attacks and his famous book “A Higher Loyalty,” which targeted the president. 

A former communications director for Hillary Clinton, Jennifer Palmieri, wrote a piece on Comey after he launched his book. According to Politico, she stated that his ego “somehow bestowed upon him the right to take actions that were well beyond his role as FBI director.” She said that it was a “dangerous attitude.”
