Pam Bondi: James Comey Only Cares About Protecting Himself
Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi says that one of the biggest takeaways from James Comey's testimony before a Senate panel is that the former FBI director only cares about one person: himself.
"That's who he's all about, and we see that now by everything he's said," Bondi said on "Your World" today.
She said it was "absurd" that Comey leaked a memo detailing one of his meetings with President Trump to a friend, in order to get it to The New York Times.
"That's unfathomable for me that any law enforcement officer would do that," Bondi said.
Neil Cavuto pointed out that Trump's request for a private dinner with Comey raised some people's eyebrows, but Bondi said it makes sense that the new president would want to meet with the director of the FBI.
She noted that the president has since denied Comey's testimony that Trump asked Comey to pledge his loyalty and to end the FBI's investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn.
She said if Comey truly had a problem with Trump, then it was his responsibility to report it or resign, not leak a memo after the fact.
Bondi said she's not ready to say Comey committed a crime by leaking the memo, but it certainly demands an investigation.
"James Comey was all about James Comey," Bondi said. "And that's what this entire testimony has shown and will continue to show."
