Shortly after the bombshell FISA abuse memo was released, former FBI Director James Comey went mental and desperately released an unhinged response to downplay the severity of the report.
Not only did his attempt to downplay the memo fail miserably, it also prompted a devastating response from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
Here is Comey’s response:
That’s it? Dishonest and misleading memo wrecked the House intel committee, destroyed trust with Intelligence Community, damaged relationship with FISA court, and inexcusably exposed classified investigation of an American citizen. For what? DOJ & FBI must keep doing their jobs.

His tweet was in reference to the FISA memo released Friday, which exposed how top officials in former President Barack Obama’s Justice Department and FBI — which was led by Comey at the time — abused their power to launch the Russia investigation against President Donald Trump.
Top FBI and DOJ officials used the dossier, which was given nearly $10 million by Democratic National Committee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, to obtain a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to spy on Cater Page, a volunteer on Trump’s 2016 campaign.
To Comey, using a politically funded hit piece to trigger a federal investigation against a duly elected presidential candidate is nothing. But to Assange and many Americans, it’s very scary and disturbing.
Here is Assange’s response, which points out how destroying worlds and trying to derail a presidential candidacy based on unverified information is simply nothing to Comey.
James Comey, master of logic: FISA memo is nothing — and also the destroyer of worlds. https://t.co/RIqTGpUwk2

Comey’s schizophrenic tweet reveals that Democrats and the Obama holdovers apparently aren’t concerned at all by abusing their power and acting corruptly.
Top Obama administration officials abused their power to launch a phony Russia investigation against Trump, and now Comey is claiming that it’s no big deal.
Many Democrats are petrified over what this memo reveals and exposes, but Comey’s arrogance further proves why many support Trump’s decision to fire him last May.
When Trump talks about draining the swamp, this is the exact type of corruption many want to be removed from Washington.
It’s time for Comey to be held accountable for his actions, and the American people deserve to know what role he played in allowing this corruption to take place.
