The Republican Party kicked off an all-out assault on former FBI Director James Comey’s credibility on Thursday. They released a video of Democrats attacking Comey’s credibility with an interview with George Stephanopoulos set for Sunday.
RNC chariwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel is heard saying, “Comey is a liar and a leaker and his misconduct led both Republicans and Democrats to call for his firing. If Comey wants the spotlight back on him, we’ll make sure the American people understand why he has no one but himself to blame for his complete lack of credibility.”
While many were claiming that the RNC’s campaign against Comey was a scandal, Shapiro fired back:
Comey was fired a year ago. He should have been fired by President Obama after his press conference announcing Hillary Clinton’s non-indictment; he should have been fired again after his letter “re-opening” the investigation; he should have been fired by Trump upon Trump taking office. He testified before Congress that Trump had the right to fire him, and that he was not obstructed in his investigation in any way. He also refused to answer some questions from Congress, purportedly for classified reasons. Now he’s appearing on national television to hawk a book, and calling Trump a “mob boss.” That’s pretty good evidence that Trump wasn’t wrong when he called Comey a “grandstander.”
The RNC has always brought out a website, lyincomey.com, it features a video that is full of Democrats destroying what is left of Comey’s credibility.
