Former FBI Director James Comey was known for his belligerent behavior against the President, and it seems his behavior has changed.
During an interview with Fox News, former President George W. Bush’s White House press secretary discussed the upcoming release of Comey’s memoir, which has been surrounded by controversy.
Ari Fleischer hit James Comey with the last thing he wanted before his big release– a massive truth bomb that may cripple his already devastated career.
Fleischer attacked Comey claiming that, “In a town full of grandstanders, Comey is one of the biggest.”
Comey’s memoir, A Higher Loyalty, is set to be released soon, and reportedly will discuss his involvement in Trump’s administration in further detail.
Fleischer was not impressed by Comey’s judgment in the memoir, and believes the frenzy surrounding his career loss should be served as a warning for another key government iplayer.
The Daily Caller reported:
Fleischer, who served under George W. Bush, appeared on the “Ingraham Angle” on Fox News Thursday evening to discuss the upcoming release of Comey’s memoir, “A Higher Loyalty,” and the media frenzy surrounding it, and he made it clear that he was not impressed by Comey’s judgment.
He framed Comey’s behavior, both as FBI Director and since leaving the Justice Department, as a warning for Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Bob Mueller is not James Comey. What James Comey shows is that prosecutors who have bad judgment will make mistakes, and not everybody is perfect at the DOJ or the FBI.
That’s an interesting and important reminder for Bob Mueller, as he goes forward, but what we know about James Comey … is that the things he did before the election were wrong, and that goes back to the Bush administration too.
Fleischer then recalled one instance when Comey had “created this whole drama” about himself when it wasn’t necessary. “It was a program that the FBI had previously approved, the Justice Department previously approved, and then James Comey had this dramatic moment at a hospital to reverse everything the Justice Department previously did.
In a town of grandstanders, he’s one of the biggest, often against good judgment.”

Prior to the interview, Fleisher also attacked Comey’s judgment when it came to the vile things he said about President Trump.
Fleisher mainly wondered why, if Comey truly felt he was working for a fascist, would he choose to continue to work under him?
Comey describes Trump as a “congenital liar and unethical leader, devoid of human emotion and driven by personal ego.”
Then why did he work for Trump? If that’s what Comey thought, the honorable action would be to resign. I’m on @IngrahamAngle tonight talking about it.
