James Comey, ladies and gentlemen:
NEW: Per Pete Williams, Comey told the IG that he didn't know Anthony Weiner was married to Huma Abedin. https://t.co/j2zMRVNPoD

We didn’t know it was possible not to know that.
According to the IG, Comey claimed that he didn't know Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin were married when he was told about the 347,000 Clinton-related e-mails discovered on Weiner's laptop in September 2016. https://t.co/4ERsrp4iga pic.twitter.com/apK1ThANWs

Ignorance of very public knowledge is definitely something you look for in an FBI director.

- 'Hell of a take'! Water main break leaves thousands in East Harlem without running water and NYT editorial board's Mara Gay knows exactly who's to blame
- British tea company is caught in a political firestorm without so much as making a comment - On the positive side, not just the US that is politically hysterical!
Does Comey think this will make him look better? More sympathetic?
Biggest revelation to me so far in #IGReport
.@Comey did not realize Huma and A. Weiner were married.
So, like, this super-investigator, w/access to every piece of information on planet, was clueless about fact every newspaper reader knows?

I find Comey's account of his knowledge here "unpersuasive"

He also didn't know Hillary Clinton was married to Bill Clinton

Seriously, though. This revelation is nothing if not incredibly disturbing.
How can anyone argue that this man wasn't grossly incompetent? https://t.co/ewMK1Kfrqi

Either that, or he’s a flaming liar. Or maybe, just maybe, he’s both.
