It’s official: Former FBI Director James Comey wasn’t a fan of Bill Barr’s interview in which he explained the need to learn more about the origins of the Russia investigation and if everything was done legally:
Bill Barr on CBS offers no facts. An AG should not be echoing conspiracy theories. He should gather facts and show them. That is what Justice is about.
— James Comey (@Comey) June 1, 2019
Is that so? Guy Benson says no:
He offered many facts in the interview. He was quite careful in his comments of two ongoing investigations into previous officials’ actions, including you. He echoed no “conspiracy theories.” https://t.co/yzh0tXE6MJ

Maybe Barr could take a page from Comey when it comes to being serious about “justice”:
Bill Barr should be posting nature selfies, facing away from the camera, and staring plaintively into the middle distance. That is what Justice is about. https://t.co/7W63Mt6PRR

Comey’s tweet was diagnosed with a severe case of projection:
Pot meet kettle…

"Echoing conspiracy theories." Now here's the pot calling the kettle black. https://t.co/P8vpnOx2AQ

Maybe the thought of full transparency about what happened in 2016 has Comey a little concerned.
Lawyer up Jim. https://t.co/iMlzhxmr9Q

Adam Schiff seems to be a little on edge as well.
Dude doing his best to validate Trump's deep state conspiracies. https://t.co/Jy52HS5tfy

Comey certainly doesn’t go out of his way to make accusations of anti-Trump bias among the intelligence community leadership in 2016 seem hard to believe, that’s for sure.
The only time Comey offered ‘facts’ was when he was leaking… #fraud

I should hope indeed that he offered no facts on some stupid TV interview. Right?

That’s what he said, he’s gathering facts. Nervous?

Comey deleted his original tweet that contained a typo at the end that’s pretty funny, considering his allegation against Barr:
Thank God Comey corrected that unfortunate typo.
— Brandon Pierce (@brandonlpierce) June 1, 2019
That was the last typo you ever want – yikes 😀
— Laura Walker 🍸🇺🇸 🏴 (@LauraWalkerKC) June 1, 2019
I choose to believe that the Q here isn’t a typo but a deliberate attempt by Comey to mess with the heads of the QAnon people https://t.co/9MuNGux0iC
