A tweet from James Comey this morning defending the FBI’s use of “confidential human sources” while saying critics of the FBI’s actions under Comey would do “lasting damage” to the United States was dismantled by Byron York. Not long after that, Comey published a follow-up tweet that almost sounds like he’s taking a page from Hillary Clinton’s notorious rhetoric about Trump supporters:
Dangerous time when our country is led by those who will lie about anything, backed by those who will believe anything, based on information from media sources that will say anything. Americans must break out of that bubble and seek truth.

Comey has always had a flair for the dramatic, and he also dabbles in comedy too.
He says this with a straight face. https://t.co/eMj1NGHOnb

Perhaps he’s a little nervous for some reason.

We did. In 2016.
In spite of your best efforts coupled with the best efforts of legacy media. https://t.co/wKMCxedmds

Comey’s tweet got plenty of support from The Resistance, minus the ones still angry at him over what happened in 2016.
