Comey Hits Back at Rudy Giuliani for Apparently Comparing FBI Agents in Cohen Raid to Nazis
James Comey hit back at Rudy Giuliani after the former New York mayor went after him and his former bureau in his bombastic Fox News interview last night.
As Giuliani muddied the waters of the Stormy Daniels saga while speaking to Sean Hannity, he also went after the former FBI director by calling him a “disgraceful liar” and a “very perverted man.” Giuliani also reminded everyone that the Russia investigation was the reason why President Trump fired Comey last year.
When Giuliani spoke about the recent raid on Trump lawyer Michael Cohen‘s offices, he apparently compared the FBI to Nazis, grumbling about “big stormtroopers coming in and breaking down his apartment and breaking down his office.”
While an argument can be made that Giuliani was referring to the “stormtroopers” made famous by the Star Wars franchise, Comey took him to be referring to the infamous storm troopers of the Nazi army:
I know the New York FBI. There are no “stormtroopers” there; just a group of people devoted to the rule of law and the truth. Our country would be better off if our leaders tried to be like them, rather than comparing them to Nazis.
