Juan Williams said that President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey may bring to light possible "backstabbing" going on within the bureaucracy in Washington.

He discussed with Bret Baier on "The Five"  whether the factions within the FBI, which sided with or against Comey through recent controversy, will have their debates made more public.

He asked Baier whether there is likely "backstabbing and cross-shooting" going on that the public may or may not be aware of.

Williams noted how Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) asked Comey about FBI leaks that were apparently sent to former Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R-New York City) just before Election Day from frustrated rank-and-file inside the bureau.

Williams said that Comey told Leahy he would investigate the leaks to Giuliani.

Former Deputy FBI Director James Kallstrom said on "The Story with Martha MacCallum" that agents were indeed furious with Comey's statements they saw as interference in the 2016 election.

Baier told Williams it is likely we will see "perspectives" from inside the FBI in the coming days that are relative to that fractious period last year.

Watch the discussion above.
