If you're a "member of the deep state" like former FBI Director James Comey, you can get away with lying under oath, an angry Corey Lewandowski charged Wednesday afternoon, and he is "very happy" members of Congress are stepping up to demand an investigation into this and other matters concerning Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and key Obama era figures.
"They are bringing to the people of America the justice they deserve," President Donald Trump's former campaign manager told Fox News' "Outnumbered Overtime" co-host Harris Faulkner, while accusing the former FBI director of having a "messiah complex."
"It is only if you are a member of the deep state and a leader at the FBI you get away with an inspector's general report that accuses you of lying three times under oath, and having no charges brought against you," he added. "I don't understand it."
Comey, though, has been "making the rounds" and doing every television show he can to promote his new book, while refuting what is being said about him and refusing pointed questions.
"This is the problem, when you have a messiah complex and you decide in your own mind what is right and what is wrong," Lewandowski said. "Comey is making the rounds and doing every television show he can . . . he's writing about things and talking about things and now he doesn't want to answer the questions."
Democrats also oppose Comey, and that is because he was "going to look out for Hillary Clinton" but he did not, Lewandowski said.
"He was supposed to be above reproach, running the premier law enforcement agency in our country," Lewandowski said. "He allowed public opinion data to determine if you should open or close an investigation on a candidate for a presidency the United States? This man has no scruples whatsoever, and he is going to be held accountable."
On Wednesday, 11 congressional Republicans sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and U.S. Attorney John Huber, according to The Hill, referring Clinton, Comey, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page for further investigation of potential violations of federal statues.
The letter was signed by GOP Reps. Ron DeSantis, Florida; Andy Biggs, Arizona; Dave Brat, Virginia; Jeff Duncan, South Carolina; Matt Gaetz, Florida; Paul Gosar, Arizona; Andy Harris, Maryland; Jody Hice, Georgia; Todd Rokita, Indiana; Claudia Tenney, New York; and Ted Yoho, Florida.
"Whether it has been the deletion of 32,000 emails from the Clinton campaign, Fusion GPS funding a dossier with $5 million of campaign donors' money, or individuals who worked for the FBI that lied under oath, gave out information to the media, which they have admitted to, a violation of protocol, there's been no accountability," Lewandowski said. "This is a very important first step."
Comey, he said, has written a book that is "full of fallacies," and he has had to change his statements on multiple occasions."
"He was very clear to Congress that he gave information he obtained when he was director of the FBI to a law professor to make sure that information got out to the media," Lewandowski said. "That's a penalty under the FBI statutes. I don't understand why you have a person who's been gone for almost a year that is not followed up with or prosecuted for that potential crime."
Meanwhile, the leadership of the FBI was a "disaster," but Comey had a "messiah complex."
"We see Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, individuals who wanted 'an insurance policy' if Donald Trump were to get elected," Lewandowski said. "These individuals are still working at the FBI. Sen. Rand Paul asked Director Wray, if they still have access to top secret and classified information, and the response back from the FBI director was they do . . . in the private sector, they would have been fired a long time ago."
He said he does hope Comey makes a lot of money from his book and McCabe from his GoFundMe page, as they will "need it for legal fees."
