Friday James Comey, former FBI director, accused US Attorney General William Barr of “slimming his own department.”
“The AG should stop sliming his own Department,” posted Comey on Twitter. ” If there are bad facts, show us, or search for them professionally and then tell us what you found,” he wrote referring to a Barr’s statement that government used its power “to spy on American citizens.”
“An AG must act like the leader of the Department of Justice, an organization based on truth,” said Comey. “Donald Trump has enough spokes people.”
The reaction came right after Attorney General’s interview with The Wall Street Journal and Fox News, where he talked about the Investigation into the origins of Russia probe which is now being conducted by John Durham, US Attorney for the District of Connecticut. Barr claimed that “some very strange developments” happened in the period between Election Day and Inauguration Day.
“The first step is to find out exactly what happened, and we’re trying to get our arms around that, getting all the relevant information from the various agencies and starting to talk to some of the people that have information,” he said.
