Tom Fitton Calls Out Comey for 'Professed Ignorance' on Dossier, 'Smear Operation' Against Trump
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton called out former FBI Director James Comey for responding “I don’t know” or “I don’t remember” to dozens of questions concerning key details in the Russia probe.
Comey appeared before the House Judiciary Committee Friday, and a 235-page transcript of the six-hour, closed-door testimony reveals that he claimed he did not know or could not recall at least 245 times.
On "Fox & Friends First" Monday, Fitton said it's particularly concerning that Comey "professed ignorance" on critical subjects, such as the anti-Trump dossier and what role it played in securing FISA warrants on Trump associates in the lead-up to the 2016 election.
He said that documents obtained by Judicial Watch suggest that officials used the unverified dossier -- which was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee -- to "mislead" the court to obtain surveillance warrants.
"They were told that the dossier, for instance, had origins in a political opposition to President Trump, but the court wasn't told the Clinton campaign was behind it," Fitton said.
"It looks like a smear operation by the Russians through the Clinton camp with the willing help of the FBI and, frankly, now the Mueller operation."
