James Comey is “really bitter about being fired”
Thursday, former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich criticized former FBI Director James Comey as “a bitter, fired employee who has a long record of aggrandizement” after he compared President Donald Trump to a “Mob Boss” in a coming TV interview promoting his new book titled ‘A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership‘ to be released next Tuesday.
“He colluded with Chuck Schumer’s (the longtime Democratic senator from New York ) staff in 2007 to embarrass President George W. Bush when he was an appointee,” Mr. Gingrich said.
Mr. Gingrich was House speaker from Ys 1995 to 1999.
“He did so to make himself look good,” Mr. Gingrich said.
“You have to balance whatever he says against that,” he said.
President Trump fired Mr. Comey last year, eventually leading to the appointment of Russia special counsel Robert Mueller by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
