Fired FBI Director James Comey ought to be embarrassed.
The Inspector General’s long awaited report on FISA abuses is out, revealing a systematic pattern of abuses at the bureau on Comey’s watch. Rules broken all over the place, nobody punished, nobody following procedures. Under Comey, ‘hain’t I got the power,’ was pretty much the only recognizable modus operandi. That must have been some atmosphere of lawlessness in the once proud agency, and yes, the bureau has since lost public trust as a result of it.
Bother him in the least? On the contrary, he’s claiming the whole ethical shambles vindicates him. His deputy, Andrew McCabe, claims he never heard of any of this, but Comey shamelessly claims the whole thing is his actual victory.
Comey is his usual pious self. He calls for others to apologize, but he is the one who owes three apologies: 1) To Carter Page, who the FBI wrongfully accused of being a Russian agent. 2) The FISA court for deceiving them. 3) President Trump for relying on the Steele dossier. https://t.co/EXL68d9A6n

Then he got worse, telling a brazen little lie that was easily called out.
FYI: I offered to go on Fox & Friends to answer all questions. I can’t change their viewers on Donald Trump but hoped to give them some actual facts about the FBI. They booked me for tomorrow at 8 am. They just cancelled. Must have read the report.

So Comey made a phony claim about being scheduled to go on Fox News to discuss the IG report — and then got cancelled because Fox realized that Comey was so very very very vindicated by the report and they couldn’t have that.
