'There Is a Truth, And They're Not Telling It': Comey Blasts Trump, House GOP After Testimony
After testifying before House lawmakers on Monday, former FBI Director James Comey slammed President Trump and top Republicans for purportedly not being truthful.
Comey was questioned over issues related to the Russia probe, including an FBI document related to the anti-Trump dossier.
In response to a question from Fox News Chief Intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge, he claimed no responsibility for the hits the FBI has taken over the past year.
"The FBI's reputation has taken a big hit because the president of the United States, with his acolytes, has lied about it constantly," Comey said.
Comey later blasted House Republicans and said they have to have "the courage to stand up and speak the truth."
"There is a truth, and they're not telling it," he said. "Their silence is shameful."
He added that he hopes any Republicans in the House would "overcome" their shame, stand up to Trump and defend the FBI.
"Some day they gotta explain to their grandchildren what they did today," he said.
Finally, when asked if he had confidence acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, Comey replied "no comment."
