Tom DeLay Tears Into Comey: 'Liar, Hack, Political Animal'

By    |   Friday, 20 April 2018 05:39 PM

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay ripped James Comey in a new interview with Newsmax TV, calling the ex-FBI director a "political animal."

DeLay, a Republican who represented Texas in the House from 1985-2006, said during a panel discussion on "Newsmax Now" that Comey has no credibility left.

"James Comey has proven to be a liar, a hack, a political animal that's in the pocket of [former President Barack] Obama and [former Attorney General Eric] Holder and all the rest of them," DeLay said. "Why in the world would he break the law and FBI protocols by coming out and playing the role of the attorney general and saying there's nothing there in the Clinton email investigation?

"And then his actions ever since then have shown that he's a liar, a liar and a liar. He's so self-absorbed and self-righteous."

Comey has appeared on several TV networks this week as he promotes his new book, which is critical of President Donald Trump and his administration. He documented some of his interactions with Comey via memos, which were leaked to the media Thursday night.

"How many of those kind of memos did he write on Obama meetings? How many on the meetings with Lynch and others than he had?" DeLay asked. "No, this was all for him to cover himself up and he's proven that on this book tour. He's absolutely, totally uncredible."

DeLay added later that Comey's criticisms of Trump and his insistence that the nation's 45th president may have been compromised by the Russians show he is trying to defend Obama, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and others by trying to justify the Russia probe.

"It's all about James Comey and also protecting the people that he works for, Obama, Lynch and the Democrats," DeLay said.
