Sarah Sanders Tees Off on ‘Shameless Fraud’ Comey: Trump ‘Did the Country a Service By Firing Him’


The White House — through its chief spokesperson — is firing back at former FBI Director James Comey after comments accusing the administration of wanting to “burn down the entire FBI.”

In a Monday evening tweet, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tore into Comey — lobbing broad accusations of corruption at the feet of the ex-FBI head without providing any evidence to support her charges.

“Republicans should stand up to Comey and his tremendous corruption – from the fake Hillary Clinton investigation, to lying and leaking, to FISA abuse, and a list too long to name,” Sanders wrote. “The President did the country a service by firing him and exposing him for the shameless fraud he is.”

Sanders will almost certainly address the subject further at her next White House press briefing, which will be held on…uh…well, who knows, exactly? (The last one, for the record, was held on Nov. 27)

Have a tip we should know?
