Former FBI Director James Comey must be in traction Monday from shock and humiliation after his interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday.
Wallace, who is hardly a pro-Trump figure at the conservative network, repeatedly pressed Comey on critical findings in the Horowitz IG report, eliciting several “I’m a confused victim” looks from the former FBI Chief.
Comey admitted in the interview that the recently released Justice Department Inspector General’s report on the launch of the FBI’s Russia investigation and their use of the surveillance process showed that he was “overconfident” when he defended his former agency’s use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act
From The National Review:
To this point, Comey has tended to get away with a lot in media interviews, for several reasons — he has known more about the investigations in question than anyone interviewing him; not much objective, uncontested information about those matters was publicly available; and his interviewers tended to be sympathetic to the point, at times, of sycophancy.
All of these advantages were eroded or nonexistent on Sunday. The Horowitz report has dumped a prodigious amount of material about the investigations out into the public. While Chris Wallace obviously isn’t a law enforcement professional, he knows the factual record and, as one of the best interviewers on TV, was relentless, yet fair in grilling Comey.
“Relentless” indeed. Have a look for yourself:
I don’t even smoke and I feel like I need a cigarette.
