Former FBI director James Comey came out after his hearing on Capitol Hill Monday, with a major chip on his shoulder towards President Donald Trump Trump supporters, and Fox News. He wasn’t shy about sharing his disdain for the aforementioned as he spoke to reporters in the hallway immediately after.
Comey’s arrogance and anger were on full display making him look even more guilty than the facts in the case, despite him blaming Trump for destroying the reputation of the FBI through this allegedly senseless investigation and accusations.
It was completely clear that Comey was attempting to do the same kind of reputation slander in his verbal tirade on Trump, Republicans, and even Fox News Channel. However, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was having none of his sickening disrespect and hit back hard by exposing the disgraced former director for the swamp that he really is.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders unloaded on fired FBI Director James Comey on Monday after he attacked the Trump administration, Republicans, and Fox News.
It's so bleak for Dems' presidential run in 2020, that with just 2 weeks before 2019, their top nominee preference is @JoeBiden at 32%. Meanwhile, Trump's approval rating is at 81%. Everyone loves a good economy! @realDonaldTrump #Trump2020Landslide #Trump #KAG

Comey testified before Congress over his controversial handling of the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server and the bureaus use of the salacious, unverified dossier to launch the Russia investigation into then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016.

When the session had ended, Comey lashed out when taking questions from reporters on Capitol Hill.
“Republicans used to understand that the actions of a President matter,” Comey lamented.
“That words of a President matter, the rule of law matters in the truth matters. Where are those Republicans today? At some point, someone has to stand up and in the face of fear of Fox News, fear of their base, fear of mean tweets, stand up for the values of this country and not slink away into retirement, but stand up and speak the truth,” he added.
Comey later said Republicans would have to “explain to their grandchildren what they did today.”
In response to Comey’s attacks, Sanders nuked him on Twitter with a brutal statement of her own.
“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. The President did the country a service by firing him and exposing him for the shameless fraud he is,” she wrote.

During his remarks to reporters, Comey also refused to deny leaking classified information when asked about it by Fox News’ Catherine Herridge.
“My understanding is that when you shared your memos with your legal team that there was a follow up for a classified containment operation by the bureau,” Herridge said. “Was there a spill of classified information when you shared those memos?”
“Yeah, I’m not going to talk about something like that,” Comey snipped back.
“Well that’s important to talk about whether classified information was mishandled,” Herridge fired back.
“Whether you think it is or not, I’m not going to talk about it one way or another,” Comey replied, appearing to grow annoyed.

Allegations have been growing that Comey leaked classified information when he gave FBI memos, which detailed private conversations he had with President Donald Trump in the White House before he was fired in May 2017, to a friend.
The friend, at the behest of Comey, then leaked them to the New York Times, which paved the way for a barrage of anti-Trump hit pieces.
Trump has also called out Comey for leaking classified information in his memos.
James Comey illegally leaked classified documents to the press in order to generate a Special Council? Therefore, the Special Council was established based on an illegal act? Really, does everybody know what that means?
