Comey: Trump lies about the nature of FBI and DoJ

Ex-Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey accused United States President Donald Trump of lying about the FBI and the Department of Justice and undermining national security. In a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee, Comey stated that "some people are angry because they've been lied to for so long about the nature and quality of the FBI and the Department of Justice by the President and his supporters... It's shortsighted, and anybody who knows those organizations, knows it's not true."

Comey also voiced concerns about Trump's possible decision to stop Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe. "In my opinion, it would undermine our national security by not holding accountable people who might have been involved in either the Russians or people who worked with them, first. And second, it would send an absolutely appalling message about the rule of law in this country of ours," he stated. However, he added that "you'd almost have to fire everyone in the FBI and the Justice Department to derail the relevant investigations."
