Comey Swipes at Trump Over Mattis Leaving: Concept of Resigning on Principle ‘Must Be Confusing’ to Him

Former FBI Director James Comey took a shot at President Donald Trump over the surprising resignation of Defense Secretary James Mattis.

Mattis made his decision after President Donald Trump‘s announcement about withdrawing in Syria, basically saying in his resignation letter that he and the President have very different worldviews and he should pick a Defense Secertary who shares his.

Trump apparently “hates” Mattis’ letter, and he has tweeted since it leaked in defense of his decision.

This afternoon Comey dryly tweeted, “To a president without any external ethical framework, folks who resign on principle must be confusing.”
