Fitton Says Comey's an Anti-Trump Activist: 'He Might as Well Be Running the DNC'
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton called out James Comey for the fired FBI director's apparent political bias.
"James Comey is an anti-Trump activist. He might as well be running the DNC, given his hatred for President Trump and his deference to Hillary Clinton," Fitton said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight."
He said not only did Comey fail to run a credible investigation into Clinton's mishandling of classified information, he also "illegally leaked" information about his private meetings with Trump.
"Breaking the rules to get a special counsel to target President Trump, that's Mr. Comey's legacy," Fitton said.
He argued that Comey established a "culture of corruption" at the FBI, from fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to the FBI officials who exchanged anti-Trump text messages, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Former FBI Executive Assistant Director Chris Swecker said the FBI is set up to have a filter between investigators and a prosecutive decision, which is intended to keep the FBI out of politics.
He said in this case Comey thrust the FBI directly into politics with a "non-investigation" of Clinton and then a "push-the-envelope" investigation of Trump.
"You can't do that differently just for her," Swecker said. "This is a system that has rules, and he should have followed the rules."
