Former FBI Director James Comey issued a warning to President Trump: Americans ‘can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not’

By

Former FBI Director James Comey ripped President Trump just hours after the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, saying Americans will “judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not.”

“Mr. President, the American people will hear my story very soon. And they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not,” Comey tweeted on Saturday.

Comey is expected to use his upcoming book tour to directly rebut Trump’s attacks on the FBI.

The book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership,” is due out April 17.

Comey, who was fired by Trump last year, made the comment the day after Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe.

Sessions said that McCabe was dismissed for not being honest with investigators and for making an unauthorized disclosure to the media.

However, McCabe claims he was fired to try and undermine special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

McCabe served as acting director of the FBI after Comey’s firing, which has reportedly been a key area of interest for Mueller in the probe.

Trump had celebrated McCabe’s firing on Twitter and used the opportunity to also take a shot at Comey.

“Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI – A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!” Trump tweeted.
